KOL-Index: 4587 . BACKGROUND: Video-assisted thoracoscopy is become a widely accepted approach for the resection of anterior mediastinal masses, including thymoma. The current trend is to reduce the number of ports and minimize the length of incisions to further decrease postoperative pain, chest wall paresthesia, and length of hospitalization. Herein, we reported an extended resection of thymoma in a ...

KOL-Index: 3947 . BACKGROUND: Complete open surgical resection is the standard treatment for thymoma and myasthenia gravis. We evaluated the feasibility of bilateral video-assisted thoracoscopic extended thymectomy, and compared it to surgery via sternotomy. METHODS: From 2011 to 2014, 43 patients undergoing thymectomy were divided into 2 groups: 23 underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic extended ...

KOL-Index: 1084 . Tracheo-esophageal fistula is a life-threatening condition for fatal pulmonary complications. Surgery is the treatment of choice. Unfortunately, the most of patients are unfit for surgery and in these cases there is no a standardized management. Herein, we reported a clinical case of a 75-year-old-woman with a tracheoesophageal fistula related to tracheostomy. The fistula was localized 3.5 ...

KOL-Index: 872 . Herein, we reported a catastrophic condition as the almost complete rupture of trachea associated with esophageal lesion following an urgent surgical tracheostomy performed for unexpected difficult intubation. The extent of lesions required a surgical management. We decided against a resection and an end to end anastomosis but preferred to perform a direct suture of the lesion due to the ...

KOL-Index: 376 . We propose a technique of uniportal VATS lobectomy using a posterior approach. The main differences of our technique versus standard anterior uniportal VATS are the following: (I) the surgical incision is performed in the auscultatory triangle instead of in the posterior axillary line and (II) the surgeon is placed posteriorly to the patient rather than anteriorly. For thoracic surgeons ...

KOL-Index: 293 . Open surgery remains the standard strategy for management of esophageal diverticulum in symptomatic patients. However, in the last years an increasing number of minimally invasive approaches have been proposed for this issue in order to reduce the surgical trauma and favor a fast return to daily activity. Herein, we describe a novel technique as uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic ...

KOL-Index: 202 . A 67-year-old man was referred to our attention for management of esophageal adenocarcinoma, localized at the level of the esophagogastric junction and obstructed the 1/3 of the esophageal lumen. Due to the extension of the disease (T3N1M0-Stage IIIA), the patient underwent neo-adjuvant chemo-radiation therapy and he was then scheduled for a minimally invasive surgical procedure including ...
KOL-Index: 76 . We report a novel less-invasive extrapleural pneumonectomy for early-stage malignant pleural mesothelioma without rib spreading. Our approach is unique and differed from the previously reported cases, because we used one skin incision and two small intercostal incisions with videothoracoscopic viewing without rib spreading. The pleural dissection and approach to the hilum for pneumonectomy ...
