The effects of immunomodulation processes in patients undergoing video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy are still debated; although, the reduced surgical stress of minimally invasive surgery is evident. The immunological repercussions could also influence the evolution of the disease and the prognosis of patients. The article aims to raise some points of reflection by considering available evidences and reiterating, once again, the prognostic utility of a minimally invasive procedure rather than classical approach...

In the era of lung cancer screening and early detection of lung lesions, pulmonary segmentectomy has gained wide acceptance between thoracic community reducing the need of lobectomy for diagnostic purpose and treatment in case of centrally located benign, multiple or undetermined lesions. In rigorously selected patients with stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), segmentectomies seem to offer similar survival outcomes rather than lobectomies, but associated with a better conservation of lung function. However, segmentectomy is a more challenging procedure to be performed compared to lobectomy, especially by video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)...

Bronchus sleeve resection for operative treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is a gold standard in modern thoracic surgery in cases of centrally located tumors or hilär lymph node metastases. Advanced instruments and growing surgical experience allowed surgeons to reduce the required incisions (from 3-port to uniportal) and to resect larger and more centrally located malignancies minimal invasively. It is a logical and expected advance in thoracic surgery that video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) would be ultimately used also for complex bronchial resections...

Background: In the last decades, the use of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy for the treatment of early stage non-small cell lung cancer is continuously growing. This is mainly due to the development of more advanced surgical devices, to the rising incidence of peripheral lung tumors and is also favored by the increased reliability of preoperative staging techniques. Despite this progress, postoperative unexpected nodal upstaging is still a relevant issue. Aim of this study is to identify possible predictors of unexpected nodal upstaging in patients affected by cT1-3N0 NSCLC submitted to VATS lobectomy...

Pneumonectomy has higher morbidity and mortality rate than any other anatomic lung resection. It is infrequently performed by VATS and mostly in high volume centers. The handling of central vessels with long instruments across very small incisions instead of palpation is the main cause of surgeon's discomfort and resistance to perform this radical type of resection. Published data on VATS pneumonectomy is still limited and based on case series. Nevertheless, the available series suggest that VATS pneumonectomy is at least equivalent to open pneumonectomy...

REVIEW
Antonio D'Andrilli, Erino A Rendina
Main specific interventions for preoperative clinical optimisation of patients undergoing lung cancer surgery include assessment and treatment of comorbidities, minimizing preoperative hospitalization, minimizing preoperative fasting, and optimisation of antibiotic and thrombo-embolic prophylaxis. Preoperative patient optimisation is considered a crucial part of enhanced recovery after thoracic surgery pathways. Potentially, advantages of this fast-track management could be even higher when considering video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) major lung resection, because reduced trauma related to minimally invasive techniques is one of the main factors improving postoperative outcome...

BACKGROUND: Anatomic segmentectomy for stage I nonsmall cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has potential advantages such as preserving pulmonary function and reducing postoperative complications. However, many surgeons are deterred from this procedure for its anatomical complexity. Therefore, we presented our early experience with video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) anatomic segmentectomy compared with our most recent VATS lobectomy cases. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Forty patients with cT1aN0M0 (ground-glass opacity [GGO] rate >50%) NSCLC underwent VATS segmentectomy from January 2015 to December 2016...

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has showed benefits in terms of pain, hospital stay and accomplishment of adjuvancy therapy versus open surgery in early stage of non-small-cell lung cancer. Over the last years, the indication of VATS technique has been expanded to advanced lung cancer. In this article, we discuss the definition of VATS and advanced lung cancer, and the safety and feasibility of VATS technique for the resection of advanced tumors.

We report a case of pneumonectomy followed by radical pancreatectomy after oral administration of TS-1 for pancreatic cancer with complications ofa lung tumor. The patient was a 66-year-old woman. A pancreatic tail tumor and 2 lung nodules were detected on CT scans, and were diagnosed as pancreatic cancer and metastatic lung cancer. During a total of1 1 courses ofTS -1 therapy, the pancreatic tumor tended to contract, but both pulmonary nodules remained unchanged. Due to differences in treatment effect, double cancers of the lung and pancreas were suspected, rather than metastatic lung cancers...

A 81-year-old man had undergone high anterior resection for rectalcancer in 20XX. Abdominalcomputed tomography (CT)showed an isolated shadow of 2 cm in size in the liver, 9 years after surgery for colorectal cancer. We performed liver S4 segmental resection and cholecystectomy. Histopathological examination confirmed liver metastases of rectal cancer. On examination of the liver metastasis 5 years after surgery, chest CT showed a shadow of 10mm in size in S6 of the left lung. We performed partialresection via video-assisted thoracic surgery(VATS)in 20XX+14...

BACKGROUND: Chronic smokers show differences in pain sensitivity compared to healthy non-smokers. Yet, no study to date has examined whether smoker status has an effect on postoperative pain. OBJECTIVE: We aim to examine a possible correlation between preoperative smoking and postoperative opioid dose based on the hypothesis that smokers would use higher doses of opioids to manage increased postoperative pain. STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective observational cohort study...

BACKGROUND: Compared to the pulmonary lobe, the anatomical structure of the pulmonary segment is relatively complex and prone to variation, thus the risk and difficulty of segmentectomy is increased. We compared three-dimensional computed tomography bronchography and angiography (3D-CTBA) combined with 3D video-assisted thoracic surgery (3D-VATS) to perform segmentectomy to conventional two-dimensional (2D)-VATS for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the data of randomly selected patients who underwent 3D-CTBA combined with 3D-VATS (3D-CTBA-VATS) or 2D-VATS at the Department of Thoracic Surgery, The First Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University Hospital, from January 2014 to May 2017...

OBJECTIVE: We describe laparoscopic transdiaphragmatic (LTD) chest surgery without intercostal incisions and focus on technique and safety. The goal of LTD is to minimize postoperative pain. METHODS: We reviewed all patients undergoing LTD chest surgery (September 8, 2010-April 4, 2017). We place 4 abdominal ports with the patient in semilateral decubitus, make 2 diaphragmatic openings, and advance 2 ports into the chest. The intrathoracic operation is standard video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), and diaphragmatic openings are closed at the end...
