BACKGROUND: Pulmonary sequestration is a rare congenital pulmonary dysplasia, which requires surgical resection (either via open thoracotomy or video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery [VATS] or via endoluminal occlusion of the abnormal feeding vessel). CASE PRESENTATION: We described a 51-year-old female patient with a history of recurrent cough and repeated pneumonia. She was referred to our hospital for further work-up of pulmonary sequestration. We performed a hybrid surgery (i...

BACKGROUND: Competence in video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery lobectomy has previously been established on the basis of numbers of procedures performed, but this approach does not ensure competence. Specific assessment tools, such as the newly developed video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery lobectomy assessment tool, allow for structured and objective assessment of competence. Our aim was to provide validity evidence for the video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery lobectomy assessment tool...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study is to summarize the causes and implications of intraoperative conversion from minimally invasive esophagectomy (MIE) to open thoracotomy, and to evaluate the effect on long-term survival. METHODS: There were 293 thoracoscopic esophagectomies for esophageal squamous cell carcinoma (ESCC) of the thoracic esophagus performed by the authors from September 2009 to August 2015. Totally, 257 patients were enrolled in this study. These patients were divided into two groups (those underwent complete MIE and those converted to open thoracotomy) and then compared...

BACKGROUND: Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHDS) is a recently recognized inherited multiple cystic lung disease causing recurrent pneumothoraces. Similarly to the lesions in patients with lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM), the pulmonary cysts are innumerable and widely dispersed and cannot all be removed. We recently described a total pleural covering (TPC) that covers the entire visceral pleura with oxidized regenerated cellulose (ORC) mesh. TPC successfully prevented the recurrence of pneumothorax in LAM patients...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to assess long-term left atrial appendage (LAA) closure efficacy of the Atriclip applied via totally thoracoscopic (TT) approach with computed tomographic angiography. BACKGROUND: LAA closure is associated with a low risk for atrial fibrillation-related embolic stroke. The Atriclip exclusion device allows epicardial LAA closure, avoiding the need for post-operative oral anticoagulation. Previous data with Atriclip during open chest procedures show a high efficacy rate of closure >95%...

The treatment of primary lung cancer of the left upper lobe in those with prior coronary artery bypass graft is difficult to plan and execute due to potential for invasion into coronary grafts, particularly the left internal mammary. We present a patient with squamous cell carcinoma invading into coronary artery bypass grafts, but successfully treated by combination of percutaneous coronary intervention followed by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.

Minimally invasive esophagectomy is an increasing trend in surgery. Thoracoscopic esophagectomy is applicable and an alternative procedure to conventional esophagectomy in patients especially with end-stage benign diseases like caustic stricture. A 33-year-old female patient was admitted to the department of general surgery with dysphagia. The patient was suffering from caustic stricture due to ingestion of hydrochloric acid. A totally thoracoscopic and laparoscopic vagal-sparing esophagectomy and colonic interposition was performed...

Background: Patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) are particularly vulnerable to opioid-induced sedation and hypoventilation. Accordingly, reducing opioid consumption in these patients is a primary goal of multimodal analgesic regimens. Although administration of preoperative gabapentin and acetaminophen has been shown to decrease postoperative opioid consumption in other surgeries, this approach has not been studied in VATS lobectomy. Our objective was to examine the impact of the addition of preoperative gabapentin and acetaminophen to a VATS lobectomy multimodal analgesic plan on postoperative opioid consumption, nausea/vomiting, and sedation...

A 61-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with progressive dyspnea on exertion. Chest X-rays and computed tomography (CT) showed elevation of the left diaphragm and atelectasis of the left lung. Eventration of the diaphragm was performed. The redundant diaphragm was plicated with vertical mattress sutures and reinforced by the suturing of the remnant diaphragm to the diaphragm near to the chest wall. During the thoracoscopic procedures, thoracoscopic examination from a small part of the resected diaphragm was conducted simultaneously to ensure safety and avoid damage to intra-abdominal organs...

A 44-year-old woman was referred to our hospital with pleural effusion and unknown fever. Mycobacterium tuberculosis was not detected by culture of pleural effusion and sputum and gastric fluid. Pleural fluid was serous and exudative, and cytological examination showed no malignant cells. Computed tomography revealed a little pleural thickening of the right middle lobe and massive pleural effusion. As acute pleurisy was suspected based on the findings of imaging studies, thoracoscopy was performed under general anesthesia...

Gaetano Rocco
Intraoperative assessment of surgical margins when lung nodules are to be removed can be a challenging undertaking. With the increasing use of sublobar resections, the need to define, either thoracoscopically or in open surgery, the safe margins for the intended wedge or segmentectomy are presumed based on the individual surgeon's expertise and experience. A new instrument is introduced to measure safe margins according to the current evidence from the literature by tattooing the lung around the nodule at a distance based on the maximum diameter of the nodule assessed at computed tomography...

A 38-year-old man with bilateral Pryce III intralobar sequestration was admitted. At first, left lower lobectomy and division of the aberrant artery were performed because of continuous hemoptysis after admission. Two months later, we planned a video-assisted thoracoscopic wedge resection of the right sequestration and a division of the 2 aberrant arteries. We chose indocyanine green fluorescence navigation because of the small volume of the right sequestration, with a goal to reduce respiratory functional loss as much as possible...

Parosteal lipoma derived from the rib is extremely rare and is usually resected through open thoracotomy despite its benign nature. A 33-year-old man who had no symptoms was referred to our hospital for treatment of a 30-mm chest wall mass that has slightly increased in size during 2 years of follow-up. En bloc resection of the tumor with parts of the 3rd and 4th ribs was performed through a complete thoracoscopic approach using orthopedic electric micro drill. This was the first report on a case of parosteal lipoma of the rib that was resected by a complete thoracoscopic procedure...

Ali Akil, Michael Semik, Stefan Fischer
BACKGROUND:  Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) clipping of the sympathetic branch has become the standard approach for the treatment of essential hyperhidrosis when conservative treatment failed. However, this is associated with relevant potential complications such as postoperative compensatory sweating and recurrent sweating. We report the outcome after selective sympathectomy (ramicotomy) through a miniuniportal VATS approach in patients with therapy-refractory palmar and/or axillary hyperhidrosis...

Background: In endoscopic operations, direct binocular view, tissue sensation and depth perception get lost. It is still unclear whether the novel three-dimensional (3D) high-definition (HD) cameras are able to compensate the limited senses and how this affects the skill set of users with different endoscopic experience. This study aimed first to evaluate if the 3D technology improves depth perception, precision and space orientation as compared to conventional two-dimensional (2D) HD technology...

We report the case of a 41-year-old woman who presented with a unilateral exudative effusion with prominent eosinophils on pleural cytology. Carbimazole had been started 4 weeks prior to presentation. No immediate cause was identified on imaging or laboratory testing. The effusion persisted at 2-month follow-up. Further investigation at this time, including autoimmune serology was negative. At 2-month follow-up, the effusion was loculated on ultrasound imaging and had a low fluid pH on diagnostic aspiration, in keeping with an empyema...
