REVIEW
Mana Rao, Fernanda P Silveira
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: To review and discuss the epidemiology, risk factors, clinical presentation, diagnosis, and treatment of non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) in thoracic transplantation. RECENT FINDINGS: Non-tuberculous mycobacteria are ubiquitous but are an uncommon cause of disease after solid organ transplantation. The incidence of infection is higher in thoracic transplant recipients than in abdominal transplant recipients, with most cases seen after lung transplantation...

BACKGROUND: Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) and extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) are used to facilitate circulatory support in standard cardiac surgery and emergency intervention, but CPB and ECMO are not used routinely in non-cardiac surgery involving the thorax and major vessels. The primary aim of this study was to identify the type of non-cardiac procedures and bypass used in our institution and review the patient outcomes including perioperative and bypass complications. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed within the Royal Adelaide Hospital Cardiothoracic Surgery Unit (CTSU) that examined all operations between 2006 and 2014...

Chylothorax is defined as the accumulation of chyle within the pleural space. Originally described in 1917 by Pisek, it is the most common cause of pleural effusion in the neonatal period. The leading cause of chylothorax is laceration of the thoracic duct during surgery, which occurs in 0.85% to 6.6% of children undergoing cardiothoracic surgery. Few authors of reports in the literature have looked at etilefrine, a relatively unknown sympathomimetic, as an option for the medical treatment of chylothorax. In this case report, we review the clinical course of 2 infants with type III esophageal atresia who developed chylothorax after thoracic surgery and were successfully treated with intravenous etilefrine after failing initial dietary and pharmacological management...

Aortoesophageal fistula is a rare but lethal complication after thoracic endovascular repair for thoracic aortic diseases. Extensive treatment is reserved for patients fit for surgery. Various technical approaches have been described; however, mortality rates are still high. Herein, we report a case of a 76-year-old woman with aortoesophageal fistula treated by a three-step treatment approach, with close collaboration between cardiothoracic and general surgery specialists. The patient required tracheostomy after the first procedure, but this was closed at 15 days...

We present the case of a 34-year-old Nigerian woman who was referred to the Respiratory team with a 12-month history of breathlessness. She was concurrently being investigated for an abdominal mass and rectal and vaginal bleeding. Consequently, she underwent cross-sectional imaging of her chest, abdomen and pelvis, revealing a small right-sided pneumothorax and right lower lobe pleural-based lesion. Shortly thereafter, she was admitted to the hospital with chest pain and required chest drain insertion. This partially treated her pneumothorax but she required referral to a cardiothoracic centre for definitive diagnosis and to manage her non-resolving pneumothorax...

BACKGROUND: After pediatric heart operations, we sought to determine the incidence of unplanned cardiac reinterventions during the same hospitalization, assess risk factors for these reinterventions, and explore associations between reinterventions and outcomes. We hypothesized that younger patients undergoing more complex operations would be at greater risk for unplanned cardiac reinterventions and that operative mortality and postoperative length of stay (PLOS) would be greater in patients who undergo reintervention than in those who do not...

In the late 1990s, several federal government health policy decisions threatened the viability of thoracic surgery as a specialty. To respond to such decisions, active participation in political processes was given extremely high priority by the Executive Committee of The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS). Creation of the STS Political Action Committee (STS-PAC) in 1997 was a part of the platform of participation. The purpose of the STS-PAC is to enhance the Society's voice and stature in health care policymaking...

REVIEW
Norihisa Shigemura
For the patients with progressively decompensating acute or acute-on-chronic respiratory failure, the first-choice treatment remains as mechanical ventilation. Despite the consistent value of mechanical ventilation, the majority of lung specialists are aware of its limitations, in particular for the patients with advanced lung failure, and inherent drawbacks that augment disease progression. More recently, the concept of allowing the lungs to 'rest and recover' has been supported by quite a few clinical studies...

OBJECTIVE: As the population ages, we will present the reality around being able to meet the health care needs of our population. In particular, we will present that providing cardiothoracic services in 2035 with a shortage of surgeons and an unknown caseload may be an impossibility. METHODS: By using data from the American Board of Thoracic Surgery, we estimate that in 2010, 4000 cardiothoracic surgeons performed more than 530,000 cases. Additionally, cardiothoracic residency programs train and certify on average 90 new surgeons every year...

The branches of medicine responsible for the care of victims of different types of injuries were born as a result of the urgent need to save lives during the wars. In Mexico, one of the first hospitals developed for the care of injured patients was the Central Hospital of the Mexican Red Cross. The aim of this article is to pay tribute to the first service for the care of patients with chest trauma, founded in 1954, its founders and those who have continued with their work: Dr. Pedro Garza Alegría, Dr. Octavio Rivas Solís Dr...
