Women in Thoracic Surgery Scholarship: Impact on Career Path and Interest in Cardiothoracic Surgery.
This study explores the effect of WTS scholarships on CTS career milestones. METHODS: We assessed career development using the number of awardees matching into CTS residency/fellowship, American Board of Thoracic Surgery (ABTS) certification, and academic CTS appointment. Scholarship awardee data were obtained from our WTS database. Comparison data were gathered from the National Residency Match Program and ABTS. Details of the current roles of ABTS certified women were determined from public resources. Qualitative results were gathered from post-scholarship surveys. RESULTS: 106 WTS scholarships have been awarde...

Minimally Invasive versus Open Coronary Surgery: A Multi-Institutional Analysis of Cost and Outcomes.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Limited multi-institutional data evaluating minimally invasive cardiac surgery (MICS) coronary artery bypass surgery (CABG) outcomes have raised concern for increased resource utilization compared to standard sternotomy. The purpose of this study was to assess short-term outcomes and resource utilization with MICS CABG in a propensity-matched regional cohort. METHODS: Isolated CABG patients (2012-2019) were extracted from a regional Society of Thoracic Surgeons database. Patients were stratified by MICS CABG versus open CABG via sternotomy, propensity score matched 1:2 to balance baseline...

Remodeling, Reintervention, and Survival after Endovascular Repair of Chronic Type B Dissection.
CONCLUSIONS: Early RAR is associated with decreased rates of re-intervention; however, overall survival is not impacted by these changes. TEVAR for cTBAD results in a high rate of re-intervention, which mandates vigilant surveillance protocols. PMID: 32961141 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Annals of Thoracic Surgery)

Intermediate Outcomes after Repair of Anomalous Left Coronary Artery from the Pulmonary Artery.
CONCLUSIONS: Intermediate-term outcomes after ALCAPA repair in infants are favorable. Persistent left ventricular dysfunction and reinterventions were uncommon, and mortality was rare. Patients who required atypical surgical repair or had moderate or greater mitral regurgitation at discharge warrant closer follow-up.

Haemostasis checklist reduces bleeding and blood product consumption following cardiac surgery.
Abstract BACKGROUND: Significant mediastinal bleeding is a recognised complication following cardiac surgery and may require re-exploration and blood product transfusion - both associated with inferior clinical outcomes with greater morbidity and mortality. The aim of this study was to develop a 'haemostasis checklist' with the intention of reducing mediastinal bleeding following cardiac surgery. METHODS: A haemostasis checklist was developed with multidisciplinary collaboration. It contains two components: a series of surgical sites and factors affecting coagulation status. The checklist is performed at a 't...

Reconstructed diaphragm by fascia lata; 13 years in vivo.
We report a case of resection of a reconstructed diaphragm with fascia lata after 13 years. A 66-year-old man was diagnosed with a solitary fibrous tumor (SFT) of the pleura. Thirteen years ago, resection for left postoperative pleural dissemination of solitary fibrous tumor with diaphragmatic resection was performed, and left fascia lata was used for diaphragmatic reconstruction. He relapsed and the diaphragm was re-resected and re-reconstructed with right fascia lata. The resected, reconstructed fascia lata had micro-vessels in the fibrous stroma and it was observed that the autologous tissue had become more resistant to...

Off Pump Explant of a Left Ventricular Assist Device Using a Recovery Plug in a Pediatric Patient.
Abstract Though the numbers remain small, the use of continuous flow left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) as a bridge to recovery in pediatric patients has been increasing. Select patients may have sufficient myocardial recovery to allow for device removal. Here we describe a 13-year old requiring LVAD implantation for myocarditis who was referred for explant of the device after recovery. This was performed via thoracotomy, without cardiopulmonary bypass, using a newly developed titanium Recovery Plug that is custom designed to fit the HeartMate 3.
