Electromagnetic Transthoracic Nodule Localization for Minimally Invasive Pulmonary Resection

ConclusionsThe use of intraoperative electromagnetic transthoracic nodule localization prior to thoracoscopic resection of small and/or difficult to palpate lung nodules is safe and effective, potentially eliminating the need for direct nodule palpation. Use of this technique aids in minimally invasive localization and resection of small, deep and/or ground-glass lung nodules.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Decisions about lung cancer screening are inherently complex and create a need for methods to convey the risks and benefits of screening to patients. RESEARCH QUESTION: What kind of decision aids or tools are available to support shared-decision making for lung cancer screening? What is the current evidence for the effectiveness, acceptability and feasibility of those tools? STUDY DESIGN: and Methods: We conducted a systematic review of studies and searched PubMed, MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane Clinical Trials Register and ClinicalTrials.gov from inception to December 2019 for studies th...

CONCLUSIONS: Lung cancer screening represents an evidence-based approach for reducing lung cancer morbidity and mortality among chronic high frequency smokers. Culturally targeting evidence-based lung cancer screening decision-aids to the language, cultural and health literacy needs of high risk populations may increase uptake of lung cancer early detection screening.

Abstract INTRODUCTION: The prevalence and burden of age-related non-AIDS comorbidities (NACM) is poorly characterized among women living with HIV (WLWH). METHODS: Virologically-suppressed WLWH and HIV-seronegative participants followed in the Women's Interagency HIV Study (WIHS) through ≥2009 (when>80% WLWH used antiretroviral therapy) were included, with outcomes measured through 3/31/2018. Covariates, NACM number and prevalence were summarized at most recent WIHS visit. We used linear regression models to determine NACM burden by HIV serostatus and age. RESULTS: Among 3232 women (2309 WLWH, 923 H...
