Open repair of descending thoracic and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms: a meta-analysis.
CONCLUSIONS: Despite improvement, open repair of descending thoracic aortic aneurysms and thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms continues to be associated with a considerable risk of operative death and perioperative complications. The use of the cerebrospinal fluid drain is associated with better outcomes. PMID: 32504596 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery)

Late Period Rastelli Take-Down and Arterial Switch Operation After Rastelli Operation: An Adult Case.
We report a case of a 35-year-old man for whom an arterial switch operation was performed to treat conduit stenosis and improve ventricular arterial alignment 28 years after he underwent a Rastelli operation to treat transposition of the great arteries with a ventricular septal defect. In the eight years that followed the operation, he was asymptomatic and was treated with warfarin. PMID: 32504598 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery)

First in man: transapical aspiration of a mitral mass with AngioVac System on beating heart.
We describe an innovative use of the Angio-Vac system to treat a left-sided heart mass. In a high-surgical risk patient, we used a micro-invasive transapical access and a modified ECMO circuit to remove the mass from the mitral bioprosthesis without having to replace it. Further experiences are required to confirm the safety of this technique in high-risk patients. PMID: 32504600 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery)

Impact of Surgical Experience on Operative Mortality Following Reoperative Cardiac Surgery.
CONCLUSIONS: Standardized mortality ratios with reoperative cardiac surgery were highest early and late in a surgeon's career and lowest mid-career. As surgeons gain experience, outcomes improve through the first two career decades, then stabilize in the third decade before declining in the fourth decade.

Uniquely modified robotic-assisted thoracic surgery with good intrathoracic visual field.
Abstract Although the use of robot-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (RATS) is increasing rapidly, it allows only a limited visual field on the head side because the RATS camera port is usually placed in the eighth or ninth intercostal space. Because the visual field on the intrathoracic head side is critical during lung cancer surgery, such as when peeling off the first branches of the pulmonary artery (right truncus superior artery or left upper ventral lobe branch), a poor visual field could be fatal. We therefore devised a new port arrangement, the "Hamamatsu method," which ensures a good visual field. ...

Improved safety of endoscopic vessel harvesting during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We present the use of a non-sealed endoscopic vessel harvesting(EVH) approach during coronary surgery that does not necessitate the use of CO2 insufflation and utilizes suction through an ultra low particulate filter, thus mitigating the risk of possible viral transmission via aerosolization or surgical smoke production. This approach is technically feasible and can minimize the risk of viral transmission during EVH. PMID: 32504604 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery)

99mTc-dextran Lymphoscintigraphy SPECT/CT unveil the hidden leakage site in recurrent chylothoraxes.
Abstract Chylothorax is defined as the accumulation of chyle in the pleural space, mainly by damaging to the thoracic duct. 99mTc-dextran, is a relatively new tracer for lymphoscintigraphy. A 40-year-old woman who had recurrent chylothoraxes after thymoma resection and ligation of the thoracic duct due to intraoperative suspected thoracic duct injury. She underwent lymphoscintigraphies using 99mTc-sulphur colloid and 99mTc-dextran respectively to identify the possible leakage site of the thoracic duct. The images showed increased 99mTc-dextran but unimpressive 99mTc-sulphur colloid activity at the leakage site. Ba...

Outcomes of Extracorporeal Life Support Use in Accidental Hypothermia: A Systematic Review.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal life support (ECLS) has been used in the treatment of accidental hypothermia with hemodynamic instability with promising outcomes. This systematic review examines ECLS treatment of accidental hypothermia to assess outcomes. METHODS: An electronic search was performed to identify articles reporting ECLS use for treatment of accidental hypothermia. Only reports describing patients older than 16 years after January 1st, 2005 were included. 19 studies were identified comprising 47 patients. Demographic information, perioperative variables, and outcomes were extracted for analys...

Multidimensional analysis of descending aortic growth following Acute Type A Aortic Dissection.
CONCLUSIONS: Our model identifies areas of rapid aortic growth following repair of Type A dissection that would likely be missed using current surveillance techniques. The increased precision, resolution, and reproducibility provided by our technique may improve on limitations of current surveillance techniques, provide novel geometric data on aortic remodeling, and contribute to the pursuit of a comprehensive patient-specific approach to aortic risk-stratification.

This study aims to evaluate the 1-year results of a prospective randomized social media trial to determine the effect of tweeting on subsequent citations and non-traditional bibliometrics. METHODS: A total of 112 representative original articles were randomized 1:1 to be tweeted via TSSMN or a control (non-tweeted) group. Measured endpoints included citations at 1-year compared to baseline, as well as article-level metrics (Altmetric score) and Twitter analytics. Independent predictors of citations were identified through univariable and multivariable regression analyses. RESULTS: When compared to control article...

Elimination of Routine Feeding Jejeunostomy after Esophagectomy.
CONCLUSIONS: Routine jejeunostomy use delays rather than prevents weight loss post-esophagectomy. Oral route nutrition allows patients to maintain sufficient nutrition and does not increase complications or requirement for nutritional interventions post-operatively.

1.5 Ventricle Repair Using Left Ventricle as the Subpulmonary Ventricle.
Abstract The use of the left ventricle as the sub-pulmonary ventricle in order to achieve a 1.5 or biventricular circulation is feasible in heterotaxy patients with complex intra-cardiac anatomy and acceptable right ventricular function. It is an alternative in patients who are not ideal candidates for single ventricle palliation. We highlight two cases where patients were rescued from a failed Fontan palliation and demonstrated improved functional status with normal saturations.

Post-Discharge Pain Management After Thoracic Surgery - A Patient-Centered Approach.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Postoperative analgesia is paramount to recovery following thoracic surgery, and opioids play an invaluable role in this process. Yet, current one-size-fits-all prescribing practices produce large quantities of unused opioids, increasing the risk of nonmedical use and overdose. Here, we hypothesized that patient and perioperative characteristics, including 24-hour before discharge opioid intake, could inform more appropriate post-discharge prescriptions after thoracic surgery. METHODS: We conducted a prospective observational cohort study in 200 adult thoracic surgery patients. The cohort...

Burden of Tricuspid Regurgitation in Patients Undergoing Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Tricuspid regurgitation (TR) is associated with poor outcomes following cardiac surgery. Guidelines recommend correction of severe TR in patients undergoing left sided valve surgery but not coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). We sought to evaluate impact of TR on outcomes following CABG. METHODS: All patients (n=28,027) undergoing CABG in a regional Society of Thoracic Surgery database (2011-2018) were stratified by TR severity. Primary outcomes included major morbidity or mortality, which were compared using univariate analysis. RESULTS: Of patients undergoing CABG, 4,837 (17%) ...
