ConclusionsVATS sleeve lobectomy is a safe and effective procedure associated with better postoperative recovery and equivalent oncological results, even for locally advanced non-small cell lung cancer patients with an invasive tumor size larger than 3 cm or accompanying lymphatic invasion.

HartwigMagnetic sphincter augmentation with the LINX Reflux Management System (Torax Medical, St. Paul, MN) is a recently introduced surgical option with comparable therapeutic efficacy for medically refractory gastroesophageal reflux disease. An appropriately sized LINX device is usually placed around the gastroesophageal junction through a laparoscopic approach. In general, redo abdominal surgeries are technically challenging, with a higher risk of associated ...

This study compares the outcome of post-lobectomy patients in relation to the analgesic method used: parenteral analgesia (PA) vs. PVB + PA, and provides justification for the routine use of PVB in all patients where CEA is contraindicated. METHODS: We randomized 213 consecutive patients undergoing open lobectomy to benefit from two different protocols of postoperative analgesia: PA vs. PVB +PA. We compared the frequency of cardiac hemodynamic, respiratory, pleural or surgical-related complications. RESULTS: After lobectomy, the PVB patients (72/213) were found to have a significantly lower frequency of congestive ...

Semin Respir Crit Care Med 2019; 40: 361-374 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1694699Infection of the pleural space is an ancient and common clinical problem, the incidence which is on the rise. Advances in therapy now present clinicians of varying disciplines with an array of therapeutic options ranging from thoracentesis and chest tube drainage (with or without intrapleural fibrinolytic therapies) to video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) or thoracotomy. A framework is provided to guide decision making, which involves weighing multiple factors (clinical history and presentation, imaging characteristics, comorbidities); multidisciplin...
