PURPOSE: Thoracoscopic lung resection for congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM) is a safe technique for children. Our purpose was to evaluate the feasibility of a fast-track protocol in such cases. METHODS: From September 2007 to May 2016, 101 patients underwent a thoracoscopic pulmonary resection of which 83 for CPAM (lobectomy, wedge resection or sequestrectomy). We retrospectively reviewed the characteristics of surgical procedure, postoperative management and complications through three time periods (September 2007-December 2009: n=14, January 2010-March 2013: n=30, April 2013-May 2016: n=39) corresponding to management protocols modifications introducing fast-track pathways...

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: Tracheal bronchus is considered a rare, congenital anomaly, which implies the abnormal origin of a bronchus. When related to repetitive infections the bronchus must be resected, usually via an open procedure. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this paper is to present the case of a patient with tracheal bronchus of the upper right lobe who presented with repetitive pneumonias. Additionally, this text intends to expose the methodology for its diagnosis and surgical resolution through a thoracoscopic lobectomy...

Tracheobronchial pediatric tumors are very rare and procedures like pneumonectomy are seldomly indicated due to the associated morbidity. If a surgical approach is considered, the ideal oncological technique would be the minimally invasive sleeve resection, allowing preservation of lung parenchyma (very important in pediatric patients). Here we present the first report of a thoracoscopic right upper tracheo-bronchial sleeve lobectomy in a pediatric patient. A 10-year-old female patient, who received multiple antibiotic treatments for recurrent pneumonia without improvement, was diagnosed with a right upper lobe (RUL) carcinoid tumor...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Thoracoscopic surgery has been increasingly utilized in treating pediatric congenital lung malformations (CLM). Comparative studies evaluating 30-day outcomes between thoracoscopic and open resection of CLM are lacking. METHODS: There were 258 patients identified in pediatric NSQIP with a CLM and pulmonary resection in 2012-2013. Comparisons of patient characteristics and outcomes between surgical approaches were made using standard univariate statistics...

We present the case of an 11-year-old girl with pulmonary aspergilloma secondary to a hematologic disease successfully treated with a single port video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy. This surgical procedure was not previously reported. We consider this approach to be a safe and appropriate procedure for lung resection, in children or adults requiring minimal intervention and early recovery.

INTRODUCTION: Thoracoscopic lobectomy for congenital pulmonary airway malformation has been indicated from the neonatal period to adolescence. However, it is difficult to approach the pulmonary artery for lobectomy in congenital lung malformations with incomplete or absent interlobar fissures. Multidetector computed tomographic images and computed tomography pulmonary angiography gave us helpful information before the operation. We performed thoracoscopic lobectomy for congenital pulmonary airway malformations with absent interlobar fissures and adhesions in accordance with information from multidetector computed tomographic images...

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery has become a common procedure in pediatric surgery. We present a case of accidental intraoperative bronchopleural fistula during a video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery procedure, which was first identified by the anesthesia team. We discuss differential diagnoses including the role of end-tidal carbon dioxide monitoring as an aid to prompt diagnosis.

BACKGROUND: Lung lobectomy is necessary in neonatal patients for the treatment of a variety of congenital bronchopulmonary malformations. The working space required for traditional stapling devices limits their use in pediatric video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) lung lobectomy. The use of Hem-o-lok clips (Teleflex Medical Inc. Research Triangle Park, NC) has been described for a number of applications in minimally invasive surgery and may provide an alternative to traditional stapling devices for bronchial closure...

PURPOSE: Over the last 15 years thoracoscopic lobectomy for congenital and acquired lesions has become an accepted modality in pediatric thoracic surgery. There is still debate about the need to perform a complete lobectomy for some of these lesions, and some advocate observation rather than resection, despite possible long-term complications of untreated lesions. High-resolution computed tomography (CT) scans and physical findings at the time of surgery, along with new advanced techniques, now allow for discrete partial anatomic resections, which may preserve normal lung...

PURPOSE: Congenital lung malformations (CLM) are traditionally treated by pulmonary lobectomy. The foremost indication for surgery is that these lesions predispose to respiratory tract infections and to malignancy. Owing to the improvement of prenatal diagnosis, most patients are operated in a timely manner and prophylactically. In this context, lung-sparing surgery (LS) has gained interest as a lung preservation strategy, especially for asymptomatic patients. In the present study, we evaluated both thoracoscopic and open lung-preserving resections as an alternative to lobectomy for CLM resection...

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy in small children has not been widely performed because of difficulties in single-lung ventilation and surgical technique. This study assessed the feasibility, outcomes, and risk factors for conversion to thoracotomy of thoracoscopic lobectomy in children. METHODS: From 2005 to 2011, thoracoscopic lobectomy was tried in 50 consecutive pediatric patients. The median age was 3.2 years and the median body weight was 16 kg...

Brad Rogers reported the first significant use of thoracoscopy in children in the late 1970s. Over the past two decades there has been an exponential growth and expansion of this technique. Many advanced procedures, including lobectomy, repair of tracheo-esophageal fistula, excision of mediastinal tumours and diaphragmatic hernia repairs, are being done routinely in pediatric surgery centres around the world. This article reviews the state of the art of thoracoscopic surgery in children. The author selected five procedures which in his opinion are most relevant for this discussion...

OBJECTIVES: Pulmonary malformations in the child are a wide clinical and pathologycal spectrum. The congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation and the pulmonary sequestration both produce many symptoms, from the asymptomatic to the most complicated, and its management remains controversial. Moreover, in the last years many new publications show that this surgery can be perfectly accomplished with the thoracoscopic approach as an alternative to the tradicional open surgery. In this paper we analyse our experience in performing lobectomies with thoracoscopy...
