The Significance of Skip Mediastinal Lymph Node Metastasis in the Prognosis of Patients with Resected Non-Small-Cell Lung Carcinoma: Is It Really a Better N2 Disease Subtype?
CONCLUSION: Skip metastasis did not take its rightful place in TNM classification; thus, further studies will be performed. To detect micrometastasis, future studies on skip metastasis should examine non-metastatic hilar lymph nodes (LNs) through staining methods so that heterogeneity in patient groups can be avoided, that is, to ensure that only true skip metastasis cases are included. Afterwards, more accurate and elucidative studies on skip metastasis can be achieved to propound its prognostic importance in the group of N2 disease.PMID:33790147 | DOI:10.5761/atcs.oa.20-00289 (Source: Annals of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery)

Gamma-Glutamyl Transpeptidase to Platelet Ratio Is a Novel and Independent Prognostic Marker for Resectable Lung Cancer: A Propensity Score Matching Study.
We report this propensity score matching (PSM) analysis to assess prognostic roles of preoperative gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase to platelet ratio (GPR) in video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) lobectomy for stage I-II non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS: The PSM-based study conducted on our single-center prospectively collected database from January 2014 to August 2015 provided Kaplan-Meier survival analyses using the log-rank test to discriminate differences in overall survival (OS) and disease-free survival (DFS) between patients stratified by preoperative GPR. RESULTS: Our study includes 379 patients di...

Short- and Long-Term Outcome after Emergent Cardiac Surgery during Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation.
CONCLUSION: Although the bail-out operation was performed immediately after TAVI abortion, ECS still associated with high 30-day mortality. The long-term survival benefit was seen in patients surviving from bail-out surgery. An experienced TAVI team is of crucial importance in avoiding ECS-related life-threatening complications and providing effective salvage surgery.

Minimally Invasive Multiple Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting with Composite Graft Using in situ Right Gastroepiploic and Radial Arteries.
We describe MICS CABG with the left internal thoracic artery (LITA) and a composite graft using the in situ right gastroepiploic artery (GEA) and radial artery (RA) to achieve complete coronary revascularization. No complications occurred, and postoperative computed tomography showed patency of all grafts. Our experience suggests that this composite graft can be used safely and effectively in MICS CABG for complete arterial revascularization without difficulty.

Outcomes of Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgical Lung Biopsy for Interstitial Lung Diseases.
Abstract PURPOSE: Surgical lung biopsy (SLB) is an important diagnostic tool for interstitial lung disease (ILD), yet the risk factors for SLB are still debatable and long-term outcomes remain unknown. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the records of 85 consecutive patients with ILD who underwent SLB by video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) from 2008 to 2019. Risk factors for complications and differences of outcomes between idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) and other ILDs were examined. RESULTS: All patients who underwent VATS had no mortality or acute exacerbation of ILD within 90 days of SLB. Th...

To minimize the risk of long-term complications, surgeons should remove the plombage 6 months after the initial operation.

Surgical Outcome and Histological Differences between Individuals with TGFBR1 and TGFBR2 Mutations in Loeys-Dietz Syndrome.
Abstract PURPOSE: To identify differences in surgical outcomes between patients with transforming growth factor-beta receptor (TGFBR) 1 and TGFBR2 mutations in Loeys-Dietz syndrome (LDS). METHODS: In all, 22 LDS patients between 1998 and 2015 were divided into the two groups: TGFBR1 (n = 11) and TGFBR2 mutation (n = 11). RESULTS: The freedom from aortic reoperation was similar between the two groups (p = 0.19, log-rank). In the subanalysis, the freedom from aortic reoperation was lower in female patients with TGFBR2 mutations (n = 6) than in other patients (p = 0.08). The freedom from aortic dissection (...

Randomized Phase II Study to Comparing Docetaxel/Nedaplatin versus Docetaxel for 5-Fluorouracil/Cisplatin Resistant Esophageal Squamous Cell Carcinoma.
CONCLUSION: No significant survival advantage was found for docetaxel/nedaplatin-treated patients, although there was an increased frequency of high-grade adverse events compared to docetaxel-treated patients. Because of the limited cohort size, a Phase III study based on our findings is not warranted to assess the clinical impact of docetaxel/nedaplatin treatment. This trial is registered with the University Hospital Medical Information Network (UMIN 000005877).

Early Outcomes of Left Subclavian Artery Revascularization Using Castor Single-Branched Stent-Graft in the Treatment of Type B Aortic Dissection or Intramural Hematoma.
CONCLUSIONS: LSA should be revascularized during TEVAR to reduce the incidences of stroke and left arm ischemia. Castor single-branched stent-graft was feasible and safe for treating TBAD or IMH.

Selection of Pathological N0 (pN0) in Clinical IA (cIA) Lung Adenocarcinoma by Imaging Findings of the Main Tumor.
CONCLUSIONS: In cIA lung adenocarcinoma with CEA in the normal range, we found that it may be possible for lymph node dissection to be omitted by MD, CD, and C/T. PMID: 33342931 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Annals of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery)

Lobe-Specific Node Dissection Can Be a Suitable Alternative to Systematic Lymph Node Dissection in Highly Selective Early-Stage Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer Patients: A Meta-Analysis.
CONCLUSION: Lobe-specific lymph node can reach a comparable long-term prognosis in some highly selected patients. However, these results should be viewed cautiously with the existence of high heterogeneity. Due to the high heterogeneity, a strict patient selection process by experienced thoracic surgeons was recommended before validating lobe-specific lymph node.
