Poor aerobic fitness is a potential modifiable risk factor for long-term survival and quality of life in patients with lung cancer. This randomized trial evaluates the impact of adding rehabilitation (Rehab) with high-intensity interval training (HIIT) before lung cancer surgery to enhance cardiorespiratory fitness and improve long-term postoperative outcome.

BACKGROUND: In non-small-cell lung cancer patients, high peak oxygen uptake (peak VO2) predicts lower rates of postoperative complications and better long-term survival. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NAC) may negatively impact peak VO2. METHODS: Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) was performed in 34 consecutive stage IIIA/IIIB non-small-cell lung cancer subjects scheduled for elective lung surgery. Using multivariate linear regression adjusted for potential confounders, we compared CPET results...

Abstract Chylothorax is characterized by a milky pleural effusion that results from the injury to the thoracic duct, causing leakage of chyle into the pleural space. Its diagnosis relies primarily, on the determination of triglycerides and/or the identification of chylomicrons in the pleural fluid. The most common causes are traumatic, mainly after surgery. Among non-traumatic causes, tumors are the most frequent (like lymphomas). Conservative treatment is based on pleural drainage with a low fa...

BACKGROUND: The pro-inflammatory cytokine migration inhibitory factor (MIF) and its receptor CD74 have been proposed as possible therapeutic targets in several cancers. We studied the expression of MIF and CD74 together with calretinin in specimens of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM), correlating their expression levels with clinico-pathologic parameters, in particular overall survival (OS). METHODS: Migration inhibitory factor, CD74, and calretinin immunoreactivity were investigated in a ti...

13-year-old boy affected by a high-energy trauma A(sled against tree) was admitted to the emergency department with respiratory distress and bradycardia. Roentgenography of the chest showed extended subcutaneous emphysema, bilateral pneumothoraces, and pulmonary consolidations (Fig 1). Computed tomography revealed massive subcutaneous emphysema, severe pneumomediastinum, bilateral pneumothoraces, peritoneal and retroperitoneal air, rib fractures, and bilateral pulmonary contusions. On axial, cor...

Background Fitness is best assessed with cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) eligible for lung resection surgery. Peak oxygen consumption (VO2 peak) is predictive of short-term complications after elective thoracic surgery. Anti-neoplastic drugs have toxic effects on cellular metabolism and therefore on VO2 peak. Effect of neoadjuvant chemotherapy on cardiopulmonary fitness has received little attention. Method We compared CPET results in p...

Thyroid hot nodules are virtually always considered benign. Rare cases of hot thyroid carcinoma exist. We briefly described a clinical case and performed a review of the literature. We performed an extensive research on medical databases, such as PubMed and compiled all published cases matching preset criteria defining true hot thyroid carcinomas as well as guidelines regarding their management. We analyzed 103 articles published over the past 50 years. We selected 16 articles, including 45 case...

: The exercise capacity has a specific importance in patients with non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) at all stages of the disease. In the preoperative period for the early stages of the disease, low exercise capacity can be improved and thus allow curative surgery for unfit patients with NSCLC. The body of current literature suggests a beneficial effect of cardiopulmonary rehabilitation on exercise capacity, quality of life and length of hospital stay or rate of post-operative complications. Fo...

Background: One of the worst complications in thyroid surgery is bilateral recurrent laryngeal nerve paralysis, which can lead to transient or definitive tracheotomy. Methods: We implemented a strict standard operative procedure beginning in January 2010 and modified our operative procedure. In all patients undergoing bilateral operation, we begin with the largest side or with the cancerous/suspicious side without dissecting the contralateral side. If the intraoperative neuromonitoring (IONM) si...
