The advancement of imaging technology has recently facilitated single port minimally-invasive thoracic surgery techniques. Cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) shows promising results in visualizing the target lesion and its surrounding critical anatomy, with an error of less than 2 mm. The integration of CBCT with the operating room (OR) to form the hybrid OR, provides unparalleled real-time imaging of the patient, which can be used with electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy to confirm successful navigation and increase procedural accuracy particularly for small peripheral pulmonary targets...

Totally implanted port devices are important for the administration of fluid and chemotherapeutic agents. However, their use may be associated with serious complications, such as catheter fracture and embolism. Most data on port catheter embolization consist of isolated case reports. We report a 6-year-old boy with relapse of an acute lymphoblastic leukemia. He presented with dysfunction of his totally implanted port device. Radiologic examination revealed a catheter fracture. Echocardiography showed the catheter embolized into the right ventricle...

PURPOSE: To characterize changes in radiation dose after introducing a new real-time image processing technology in interventional radiology systems. METHODS: Interventional radiology (IR) procedures are increasingly complex, at times requiring substantial time and radiation dose. The risk of inducing tissue reactions as well as long-term stochastic effects such as radiation-induced cancer is not trivial. To reduce this risk, IR systems are increasingly equipped with dose reduction technologies...

During the past 20 years, advances in systemic therapies have improved overall survival of patients with Colorectal cancer Liver metastases (CRLM) from 6 to 24 months. By reaching CRLM via their preferential arterial vascularization, hepatic arterial infusion of chemotherapy (HAIC) has demonstrated improvement in response rate and deepness of response. Improvement in deepness of response is potentially helpful to convert no surgical patient to surgery. Recent HAIC regimens, including HAIC-FUDR plus systemic oxaliplatin/irinotecan, or HAIC-oxaliplatin plus systemic 5FU and cetuximab yielded a 92% and 90% response rate respectively, and conversion to R0 surgery in 47% and 42% of patients, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Surgery for low rectal cancer remains a challenge when a standard laparoscopic approach is used. Transanal endoscopic total mesorectal excision (TME) has been shown to be feasible and to be associated with a low conversion rate. Combining the transanal and transabdominal single-port approaches (with an abdominal single port implanted in the future stoma and extraction site) could allow TME with minimal wound trauma, low morbidity, and faster recovery. The aim of the current study was to assess the short- and mid-term results of this technique...

Major progress has been made in breast cancer reconstruction surgery. The standard technique for totally implanted vascular access device (TIVAD) implantation generally requires an incision for port insertion on the anterior part of the thorax that leaves a scar in the middle of the neckline in patients who have undergone mastectomy with complex breast reconstruction. The aim of this technical note is to report our revised surgical technique for TIVAD placement. In patients with breast cancer, we take a lateralized approach, performing an oblique incision on the lowest part of the deltopectoral groove...

BACKGROUD: An important drawback of the traditional technique for harvesting latissimus dorsi (LD) myocutaneous flap is a long, posterior donor-site incision. Current techniques involve endoscopic or robotic harvesting via a combined approach of open and closed surgery, which necessitates an open axillary incision and the use of special retractors. In this paper, we introduce a fully enclosed laparoscopic technique for harvesting LD flap (LDF) using only 3 small trocar ports. This technique eliminates the need for axillary and donor-site incisions and specialized retractors and considerably reduces the incision size...
