BACKGROUND: Postoperative atrial fibrillation (PAF) affects 12% to 17% of patients undergoing lobectomy and is associated with increased morbidity. CHADS2 (congestive heart failure history, hypertension history, age ≥75 years, diabetes mellitus history, and stroke or transient ischemic attack symptoms previously) is used to predict stroke risk in patients with existing AF. It also has been shown also to predict new-onset PAF. Our objective was to determine whether CHADS2 can predict PAF in patients undergoing lobectomy...

BACKGROUND: The interest for endoscopic pulmonary anatomic resections has grown exponentially during the last decade. During thoracoscopic procedures surgeons cannot rely on digital handling and operative field is viewed on a two-dimensional video monitor, thus frequently encountering anatomical difficulties. The hypothesis is that foreknowledge of the anatomy of each patient would greatly contribute to the safety and accuracy of the operation. The aim of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of 3dimensional multidetector computed tomography (3D-MDCT) software to identify the pulmonary artery branching pattern during the preoperative study of endoscopic lobectomies and segmentectomies...

Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) pulmonary resection in children is a technically demanding procedure that requires a relatively long learning period. This study aimed to evaluate the serial improvement of quality metrics according to case volume experience in pediatric VATS pulmonary resection of congenital lung malformation (CLM). Methods VATS anatomical resection in CLM was attempted in 200 consecutive patients. The learning curve for the operative time was modeled by cumulative sum analysis. Quality metrics were used to measure technical achievement and efficiency outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary large cell neuroendocrine carcinoma (LCNEC) is pathologically classified as non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC), but its clinical behavior is more aggressive than other types of NSCLC. Accordingly, the optimal treatment strategy for LCNEC, including the indication of adjuvant treatment, remains controversial. METHODS: A retrospective review of 139 patients who underwent curative-intent surgery for LCNEC was performed to investigate clinicopathologic features and survival outcomes and to evaluate whether adjuvant treatment affected survival outcomes...

Double-sleeve lobectomy, which includes bronchoplasty and pulmonary arterial angioplasty, is required for certain cases of central-type lung cancer. It is usually done by open surgery or video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). In recently, da Vinci system and robotic surgery have been applied in such complicated cases. Here we describe the details associated with robotic-assisted double-sleeve lobectomy.

BACKGROUND: Uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopy (VATS) has increasingly gained importance in the thoracic surgery scenario. The use of this technique can reduce postoperative pain and length of stay and gives the surgeon the same operative perspective as open surgery. METHODS: We retrospectively analysed the data of 73 patients who underwent uniportal VATS lobectomies from November 2014 to December 2015 in our institution. We divided the patients in two groups (group 1: first 30 patients vs...

: A male patient presented at the age of 30 with classic clinical features of acromegaly and was found to have elevated growth hormone levels, not suppressing during an oral glucose tolerance test. His acromegaly was originally considered to be of pituitary origin, based on a CT scan, which was interpreted as showing a pituitary macroadenoma. Despite two trans-sphenoidal surgeries, cranial radiotherapy and periods of treatment with bromocriptine and octreotide, his acromegaly remained active clinically and biochemically...

BACKGROUND: Knowledge about the impact of Low-Molecular-Weight Heparin (LMWH) on the coagulation system in patients undergoing minimal invasive lung cancer surgery is sparse. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of LMWH on the coagulation system in patients undergoing Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) lobectomy for primary lung cancer. METHODS: Sixty-three patients diagnosed with primary lung cancer undergoing VATS lobectomy were randomized to either subcutaneous injection with dalteparin (Fragmin®) 5000 IE once daily or no intervention...

A pathological complete response in a patient affected by multiple synchronous, breast and lung primary malignancies is reported. A 63-year-old woman presented with an invasive ductal carcinoma of the breast and a lung adenocarcinoma. After multidisciplinary discussion, the patient underwent pulmonary left lower lobectomy followed by radio-chemotherapy with cisplatin and vinorelbine and started hormone therapy with letrozole. Ten months later, a left mastectomy with axillary lymph nodes dissection was performed...

Herpes simplex virus (HSV) is the most common cause of non-epidemic, sporadic, acute focal encephalitis in the United States. Inflammation of the vasculature makes them friable and susceptible to hemorrhage. Massive hemorrhage, though rare, can present in a delayed fashion after initiation of acyclovir and often requires surgical intervention. We report a unique case of delayed temporal lobe hemorrhage after initiation of acyclovir in an immunocompetent patient, specifically for its presentation, virology, and surgical management...

Abscess formation in lung cancer after transbronchial biopsy (TBB) is a rare complication with no standard consensus on a coping strategy or prophylaxis. We describe an instructive case of lung cancer which developed into an abscess after TBB. An 80-year-old man with poorly controlled diabetes mellitus underwent TBB for diagnosing a mass lesion in the left upper lobe. The TBB specimen confirmed a diagnosis of lung cancer, and he was scheduled for radical surgery. However, the tumour was revealed to have progressed into an enlarged abscess 24 days after TBB...

BACKGROUND: The Afirma gene expression classifier (GEC) is being increasingly utilized to confirm the benign nature of indeterminate FNA cytology results thus avoiding unnecessary surgical procedures. However the "suspicious" result of the Afirma GEC does not classify these indeterminate nodules further in determining appropriate management. This study investigated the outcome of the thyroid nodules deemed to be "suspicious" by the Afirma GEC in a high risk population. METHODS: The pathology database was searched for all thyroid nodules with Afirma test results over a three year period, 2013-2015...

BACKGROUND: Lung cancer rarely metastasizes to the breast, and breast metastasis of pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma has not been previously reported. CASE PRESENTATION: The patient was a 66-year-old woman who became aware of a mass in the right breast and visited a physician. She was referred to our department for close examination, upon which she was diagnosed with double cancer (right breast cancer and left lung cancer). Needle biopsy findings for the mammary tumor were similar to those for the lung biopsy specimen, but spindle cell or metaplastic carcinoma were possibilities...

We report an operative case of intercostal lung hernia after resection of a Lung cancer. A 60-year-old man with asthma consulted our hospital because of an abnormal shadow on a chest X-ray. A chest computed tomography revealed a tumor in the right upper lobe. A diagnosis of lung cancer was suspected and the patient underwent right upper lobectomy with standard nodal dissection from 4th intercostal space with right anterolateral incision. Intercostal space was directly closed by three stitches. A chest drain was removed on the 5th operative day...

A 49-year-old man complaining of fever, chest pain, and hemosputum was examined at a local hospital. A chest computed tomography (CT) scan revealed a 35 mm mass shadow with cavity in the right upper lobe, but a transbronchial lung biopsy could not establish a complete diagnosis. After 1 month follow-up, the patient was referred to our hospital because the mass shadow wall remained thick despite the cavity shrinking. The mass shadow cavity disappeared 2 months after the 1st CT at our hospital. Video-assisted thoracic surgery was performed for both making diagnosis and treatment...
