First experiences in non-intubated, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery: a single-centre study
CONCLUSIONS: The non-intubated VATS approach can be safely applied in procedures such as lung resections, pleural or mediastinal interventions, and pneumothorax surgery. With this technique, the absence of intubation and mechanical ventilation facilitates the return to normal respiratory physiology, and we think that the recovery time of the patient, the duration of hospital stay, and treatment costs are reduced.PMID:34552639 | PMC:PMC8442089 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105181 (Source: Polish Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)

Evaluating the rate of post-surgical complications between three surgical methods in management of pulmonary hydatid disease
CONCLUSIONS: Since complications were only dependent on the surgical method, the rate of post-surgical complications were compared between the three approaches. Cystectomy and lobectomy had similar rates of complications, which were lower than that of the Ugon method. It can be concluded that cystectomy is the method of choice for management of pulmonary hydatid disease, with the lowest rate of complications.PMID:34552640 | PMC:PMC8442088 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105183 (Source: Polish Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)

Timing of coronary artery bypass grafting after acute myocardial infarction: does it influence outcomes?
CONCLUSIONS: The duration between MI and CABG has a direct influence on outcomes after CABG. While it is clear that the longer the duration between MI and CABG, the lower the mortality risk, it is however difficult to decide on an exact cut-off time frame.PMID:34552641 | PMC:PMC8442093 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105184 (Source: Polish Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)

Mini-endovascular aneurysm repair: a minimalist approach for a minimally invasive procedure
CONCLUSIONS: Although the EVAR procedure has been described as a safer and more easily applicable alternative to surgical repair, it is disadvantageous in terms of increasing treatment costs. Anaesthesia preference and incision size with a more minimalist approach can reduce the length of hospital stay and minimize the complications that may occur after the procedure, resulting in decreased costs.PMID:34552644 | PMC:PMC8442085 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105188 (Source: Polish Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)

First experiences in non-intubated, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery: a single-centre study
CONCLUSIONS: The non-intubated VATS approach can be safely applied in procedures such as lung resections, pleural or mediastinal interventions, and pneumothorax surgery. With this technique, the absence of intubation and mechanical ventilation facilitates the return to normal respiratory physiology, and we think that the recovery time of the patient, the duration of hospital stay, and treatment costs are reduced.PMID:34552639 | PMC:PMC8442089 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105181 (Source: Polish Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)

Evaluating the rate of post-surgical complications between three surgical methods in management of pulmonary hydatid disease
CONCLUSIONS: Since complications were only dependent on the surgical method, the rate of post-surgical complications were compared between the three approaches. Cystectomy and lobectomy had similar rates of complications, which were lower than that of the Ugon method. It can be concluded that cystectomy is the method of choice for management of pulmonary hydatid disease, with the lowest rate of complications.PMID:34552640 | PMC:PMC8442088 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105183 (Source: Polish Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)

Timing of coronary artery bypass grafting after acute myocardial infarction: does it influence outcomes?
CONCLUSIONS: The duration between MI and CABG has a direct influence on outcomes after CABG. While it is clear that the longer the duration between MI and CABG, the lower the mortality risk, it is however difficult to decide on an exact cut-off time frame.PMID:34552641 | PMC:PMC8442093 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105184 (Source: Polish Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)

Evaluation of pericardiocentesis videos on YouTube as a reliable source for on-line education in the COVID-19 period
CONCLUSIONS: The educational value of pericardiocentesis videos on YouTube are low. It is recommended that doctors and patients be aware of and adopt the developing technology, and they should prefer videos uploaded from university hospitals and educational hospitals.PMID:34552642 | PMC:PMC8442092 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105185 (Source: Polish Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)

Self-management of patients with heart valve replacement and its clinical outcomes: a systematic review
CONCLUSIONS: Self-management is an applicable protocol in the field of anticoagulation therapy, INR control, low-dose INR management, and the monitoring of cardiac valve function. This protocol could improve the quality of treatment for these patients through upgrading the care standards.PMID:34552643 | PMC:PMC8442083 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105186 (Source: Polish Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)

Mini-endovascular aneurysm repair: a minimalist approach for a minimally invasive procedure
CONCLUSIONS: Although the EVAR procedure has been described as a safer and more easily applicable alternative to surgical repair, it is disadvantageous in terms of increasing treatment costs. Anaesthesia preference and incision size with a more minimalist approach can reduce the length of hospital stay and minimize the complications that may occur after the procedure, resulting in decreased costs.PMID:34552644 | PMC:PMC8442085 | DOI:10.5114/kitp.2021.105188 (Source: Polish Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery)
