BACKGROUND: Identification of the exact location of small peripheral pulmonary nodules during thoracoscopic wedge resection (TWR) is crucial. We describe a new method of computed tomography (CT)-guided marking without puncturing the visceral pleura (VP) for minimally palpable pulmonary nodules. METHODS: Preoperative CT scans were performed 1 day before TWR with the patient in the lateral decubitus position. Under CT guidance, we marked the skin over the pulmonary nodule...

OBJECTIVES: We investigated whether advanced age affects peri-operative outcomes after robotic-assisted pulmonary lobectomies. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed patients who underwent robotic-assisted lobectomy by one surgeon over a 5-year period. Rates of postoperative complications were compared according to age group. Other outcomes, such as intraoperative complications, hospital length of stay (LOS), and in-hospital mortality, were also compared...

BACKGROUND: The anaesthetic technique may influence clinical outcomes, but inherent confounding and small effect sizes makes this challenging to study. We hypothesized that regional anaesthesia (RA) is associated with higher survival and fewer postoperative organ dysfunctions when compared with general anaesthesia (GA). METHODS: We matched surgical procedures and type of anaesthesia using the US National Surgical Quality Improvement database, in which 264,421 received GA and 64,119 received RA...

PURPOSE: In the present prospective randomized controlled study, we compared the feasibility and effectiveness of our modified thoracoabdominal approach to anterior thoracolumbar spine surgery without cutting open the costal portion of diaphragm (extradiaphragmatic approach) with the traditional transdiaphragmatic thoracoabdominal approach. The traditional combined thoracoabdominal approach in anterior thoracolumbar surgery for spine tuberculosis is effective but seriously damages the diaphragm and causes various lung complications...

BACKGROUND: Identification and section of pulmonary veins are an essential part of anatomical pulmonary resections. Intraoperative misunderstandings of pulmonary venous anatomy can lead to serious complications such as bleeding and delayed lung infarction or necrosis. We evaluated principally the rate of pulmonary venous anatomical variations, and secondarily the reliability and clinical outcomes of a preoperative morphological analysis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between November 2012 and October 2013, we studied 100 consecutive patients with highly suspected or diagnosed stage I-II primitive lung cancer lesion...

BACKGROUND: Common bile duct (CBD) stone is one of the most common diseases among elderly people. In recent decades, there are numerous studies regarding the safety and efficacy of laparoscopic common bile duct exploration (LCBDE). Elderly patients are often regarded as high-risk patients because they are more likely to present with age-specific deterioration of organ function and coexisting chronic diseases, which may reduce their tolerance of laparoscopic surgery. Although laparoscopic surgery for choledocholithiasis is now widely accepted as the treatment for CBD stone, its appropriateness for the treatment of elderly patients or those with coexisting high-risk patients has not been well established...

When a sudden death occurs during a minor surgical intervention, it may require a careful and extensive postmortem investigation. One such case concerns a 61-year-old male patient affected by Peyronie's disease, who died suddenly during a corporoplasty procedure. Autopsy and histologic examinations showed a massive bilateral pulmonary micro-embolism brought on by periprostatic venous plexus thrombosis. The cause of death was attributed to intraoperative fatal pulmonary micro-embolism. Pulmonary thromboembolism is a major cause of death and is known to be a possible complication of surgery...

OBJECTIVE: Several risk-scoring systems have been developed to predict surgical mortality and complications in cardiac surgical patients, but none of the current systems include factors related to the intraoperative period. The purpose of this study was to develop a score that incorporates both preoperative and intraoperative factors so that it could be used for patients admitted to a cardiac surgical intensive care unit (ICU) immediately after surgery. METHOD: Preoperative and intraoperative data from 30,350 patients in four hospitals were used to build a multiple logistic regression model estimating 30-day mortality after cardiac surgery...

BACKGROUND: It is common knowledge that high ligation of blood vessels at the D3 level and complete mesocolic excision (CME) are two critical points of right hemicolectomy for right colon cancer (RCC). (1-5) To date, a safe strategy for completing these two procedures under laparoscopic surgery has not been extensively described. The authors provide a video to demonstrate laparoscopic right hemicolectomy (D3 + CME) with an optimal mesentery-defined approach. By identifying three "tri-junctions," this approach facilitates dissection of the entire mesocolon along the embryologic planes as far centrally as possible and enables the high tie of feeding vessels at bifurcation...

BACKGROUND: A biodegradable polymeric sealant has been previously shown to reduce postoperative air leaks after open pulmonary resection. The aim of this study was to evaluate safety and efficacy during minimally invasive pulmonary resection. METHODS: In a multicenter prospective single-arm trial, 112 patients with a median age of 69 years (range 34-87 years) were treated with sealant for at least one intraoperative air leak after standard methods of repair (sutures, staples or cautery) following minimally invasive pulmonary resection (Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) or Robotic-Assisted)...

BACKGROUND: Open esophagectomy (OE) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Minimally invasive oesophagectomy (MIO) reduces complications in resectable esophageal cancer. The aim of this study is to explore the superiority of MIO in reducing complications and in-hospital mortality than OE. METHODS: MEDLINE, Embase, Science Citation Index, Wanfang, and Wiley Online Library were thoroughly searched. Odds ratio (OR)/weighted mean difference (WMD) with a 95% confidence interval (CI) was used to assess the strength of association...

BACKGROUND: Prolonged air leak is one of the most common complications after lung surgery and the cause of prolonged hospital stay frequently associated with major postoperative morbidity and thus responsible for even higher hospital costs. This case-control study was designed to test the sealing efficacy and safety of Enable-Innoseal TP4 in patients undergoing pulmonary resection for lung cancer. METHODS: This was a case-control trial enrolling patients with primary or single site metastatic lung cancer scheduled for elective anatomic or nonanatomic pulmonary resection presenting intraoperative grade 1 or 2 air leak at water submersion test; the study group population was then matched 1:1 according to surgical procedure, male/female ratio, preoperative FEV1, and age...

BACKGROUND: To prevent postoperative middle lobe torsion after a right upper lobectomy, we introduced a novel technique of interlobar fixation using collagen fleece coated with fibrin. In this study, the prophylactic effects of this method on the incidence of postoperative pulmonary torsion were analyzed. METHODS: Between April 2001 and December 2015, 3786 pulmonary resection procedures (excluding total pneumonectomy) were performed in our institution, and prophylactic interlobar fixation was selectively applied when intraoperative examination indicated that the patient was at high risk of postoperative pulmonary lobe torsion...

BACKGROUND: The stage 1 Norwood procedure and its variants represent the first step of palliation for hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Although appropriate postoperative thromboprophylaxis is integral, significant variance remains across institutional practices. The purpose of this systematic review is to estimate the incidence of thrombosis and thromboembolism following the Norwood or modified Blalock-Taussig shunt procedure and examine current thromboprophylaxis regimens. METHODS: Ovid MEDLINE and Embase were searched from January 2000 to June 2016 for primary studies explicitly reporting incidence of thrombosis, thromboembolism (strokes and pulmonary embolisms), or shunt occlusion in neonates, infants, and children undergoing the Norwood procedure or any variant...

BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracoscopy is become a widely accepted approach for the resection of anterior mediastinal masses, including thymoma. The current trend is to reduce the number of ports and minimize the length of incisions to further decrease postoperative pain, chest wall paresthesia, and length of hospitalization. Herein, we reported an extended resection of thymoma in a patient with myasthenia gravis through an uniportal bilateral thoracoscopic approach. CASE PRESENTATION: A 74 years old woman with myasthenia gravis was referred to our attention for management of a 3...
