OBJECTIVE: The adoption of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery programs in thoracic surgery is relatively recent with limited outcome data. This study aimed to determine the impact of an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery pathway on morbidity and length of stay in patients undergoing lung resection for primary lung cancer. METHODS: This prospective cohort study collected data on consecutive patients undergoing lung resection for primary lung cancer between April 2012 and June 2014 at a regional referral center in the United Kingdom...

Malignant pleural effusion (MPE) appears in up to 20% of patients with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL). The present study aimed to assess the efficacy of medical thoracoscopy (MT) in the diagnosis of patients with MPE induced by NHL. Between July 2005 and June 2014, 833 patients with pleural effusions of unknown etiology underwent MT in Beijing Chaoyang Hospital (Beijing, China), where diagnostic thoracocentesis or/and blind pleural biopsy had failed to yield an answer. Demographic, radiographic, thoracoscopic, histological and immunophenotyping data of 10 NHL patients with MPE were then retrospectively analyzed...

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Surgical resection is considered the first treatment option for submucosal tumors (SMTs) originating from the muscularis propria layer while submucosal tunneling endoscopic resection (STER) is proved to be a safe and effective method for treating SMTs. This study aimed to compare video-assisted thoracoscopic enucleation (VATE) with STER for treating esophageal SMTs. METHODS: Sixty-six patients with small esophageal SMTs were prospectively randomized from July 2014 to December 2015...

OBJECTIVES: The use of image-guided video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for simultaneous localization and removal of small solitary pulmonary nodules in a hybrid operation room using C-arm cone-beam computed tomography is gaining momentum. We sought to assess the effect of the learning curve on procedural parameters and clinical outcomes of image-guided video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for treating patients with small solitary pulmonary nodules. METHODS: Clinical variables and treatment outcomes of the 30 initial patients with solitary pulmonary nodules who were treated with image-guided video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital (Taiwan) were prospectively analyzed...

Idiopathic pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis (IPPFE) is a rare disorder recently included in rare idiopathic interstitial pneumonias according to the updated American Thoracic Society/European Respiratory Society classification. IPPFE is characterized by pleural and subpleural parenchymal fibrosis causing volume loss predominantly in the upper lung lobes. Age of onset is variable, IPPFE mainly occurs in third and fourth decades. We present a 16 year old patient with a 2-year history of exertional dyspnea, nonproductive cough and weight loss...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for small-sized pulmonary nodules is challenging, and image-guided preoperative localisation is required. Near-infrared indocyanine green fluorescence is capable of deep tissue penetration and can be distinguished regardless of the background colour of the lung; thus, indocyanine green has great potential for use as a near-infrared fluorescent marker in video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. METHODS: Thirty-seven patients with small-sized pulmonary nodules, who were scheduled to undergo video-assisted thoracoscopic wedge resection, were enrolled in this study...

Maintaining sinus rhythm in patients with non-paroxysmal AF is an elusive goal. Some suggest that hybrid ablation, combining minimally invasive epicardial surgical ablation with endocardial catheter ablation, may be more effective than either modality alone. However, randomised trials are lacking. We investigated whether hybrid ablation is more effective than epicardial ablation alone at preventing recurrent AF by performing a systematic review and meta-analysis. The review was prospectively registered with PROSPERO (CRD42016043389)...

Optimal identification of the intersegmental plane can be challenging during thoracoscopic anatomical segmentectomy for lung cancer. We describe a simple new method of infrared-fluorescence-enhanced thoracoscopy with selected injection of indocyanine green into the bronchi not targeted for resection, which allows us to clearly identify the intersegmental plane in thoracoscopic segmentectomy.

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate the current trends and results of lung cancer surgery in Finland at the population level. METHODS: Three compulsory national registries provided the data on surgical treatment of lung cancer during 2004 and 2014. Outcomes of interest were all-cause mortality, population level surgical rates and frequencies of resections. The data were divided into 2 eras to analyse changes in treatment strategies and baseline characteristics: 2004-2009 and 2010-2014...

BACKGROUND: A hook wire has been most widely used for computed tomography (CT)-guided localization before video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). However, microcoils have been suggested to replace wires. The purpose of this study was to compare the efficacy, VATS procedure time, and excised volume of specimens of CT-guided localization using a hook wire and microcoil. METHODS: The medical records of 106 patients with 110 pulmonary nodules who underwent CT-guided localization using a hook wire (group A) or microcoil (group B) before VATS performed between March 2013 and January 2017 were retrospectively reviewed...

We herein present a case of a 71-year-old woman with primary Sjogren's syndrome (SjS), who developed bilateral pleural effusion and ground glass opacity during treatment with low-dose prednisolone. The pleural effusion and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid revealed elevation of lymphocytes. Thoracoscopic pleural biopsy showed infiltration of lymphocytes with no evidence of other diseases, confirming SjS-related pleuritis. Therefore, we initiated 20 mg prednisolone and pleural effusion was rapidly resolved. Our results indicate that SjS can be rarely complicated with pleuritis...

Background: Medical thoracoscopy has received interest in recent past for diagnostic as well as therapeutic uses. In this study we describe our experience with diagnostic medical thoracoscopy in pleural effusions of undiagnosed etiology. Objectives: 1.To detect diagnostic yield of medical thoracoscopy in pleural effusions of unknown etiology. 2.To find complication rate in these patients. Methodology: In a retrospective analysis of thoracoscopic procedures performed between March 2011 and December 2014, diagnostic yield and complications of thoracoscopic pleural biopsy for achieving a diagnosis in undiagnosed pleural effusions were evaluated...

Achalasia cardia is an oesophageal motility disorder characterised by aperistalsis and failure of relaxation of the lower oesophageal sphincter. The management is predominantly palliative with focus on addressing the sphincter that involves either pneumatic dilatation or Heller myotomy which relieves dysphagia in the majority of the cases. End-stage achalasia (ESA) is characterised by failed myotomy, massively dilated and tortuous oesophagus with nutritional deterioration due to progressive dysphagia and vomiting...

INTRODUCTION: The fear of pleural adhesions and densely stuck lymph nodes in India, a country where tuberculosis is endemic, is one major factor keeping our surgeons away from video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy. In this paper, we aim to report our experience with performing VATS lobectomy in 102 cases using a standardised three-port anterior approach. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between March 2012 and September 2016, we performed 102 VATS lobectomies...

BACKGROUND: Patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) occurs more frequently in premature infants. Depending on the degree of prematurity, these children often have other serious comorbidities that could significantly impact on surgical outcome. AIM: This study aimed to evaluate clinical results of the surgical ligation of PDA in extremely low body weight preterm infants with birth weight below 750 grams and to identify risk factors of mortality. METHODS: A total of 31 preterm infants with birth weight below 750 grams and significant PDA were operated between 2006 and 2016 through posterolateral thoracotomy (n=16) or with the use of video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) method (n = 15)...
