OBJECTIVES Soluble urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (suPAR) is a biomarker that has been implicated in several cardiac pathologies and has been shown to be elevated in critically ill populations. We measured plasma suPAR in a cohort of cardiac surgical patients to evaluate its ability to predict prolonged intensive care unit (ICU) and hospital length of stay and development of complications following surgery. We compared suPAR against EuroSCORE II and C-reactive protein (CRP). METHODS Ni...

OBJECTIVES We performed a comparative analysis of the performance of video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy simulation using three-dimensional-printed Biotexture lung models by surgeons classified according to their level of expertise. The aim of this study was to investigate the association between surgeons' experience and time to complete the VATS lobectomy simulation. METHODS Participants were divided into 3 groups: group A included those who had no experience of actual VATS lobecto...

Objectives Simulation-based training has shown to be effective in training new surgical skills. The objective of this study is to develop a flexible 3-dimensional (3D)-printed heart model that can serve as a foundation for the simulation of multiple cardiovascular procedures. Methods Using a pre-existing digital heart model, 3D transoesophageal echocardiography scans and a thoracic CT scan, a full volume new heart model was developed. The valves were removed from this model, and the internal str...

Objectives Our goal was to investigate the safety and feasibility of triport periareolar thoracoscopic surgery (TPTS) and its advantages in repairing adult atrial septal defect. Methods Between January 2017 and January 2020, a total of 121 consecutive adult patients underwent atrial septal defect closure in our institution. Of these, 30 patients had TPTS and 31 patients had a right minithoracotomy (RMT). Operational data and clinical outcomes were compared between the 2 groups. Results The total...

OBJECTIVES Prolonged operative times, potentially leading to increased morbidity, are a possible drawback of minimally invasive aortic valve replacement. The aim of this study was to assess the impact of anatomical circumstances in the chest on aortic cross-clamp time. METHODS This retrospective study included 68 patients who underwent minimally invasive aortic valve replacement with the Perceval sutureless valve via right-anterior thoracotomy or with ministernotomy. Anatomical variables were me...
Type-B aortic dissection in a patient affected by Takayasu disease is a rarely described condition and its management can be challenging. A 47-year-old woman with Takayasu aortitis and previous aortic valve and ascending aorta replacement was admitted to hospital for type-B aortic dissection. The recent instabilization of aortic disease, the persistence of episodes of transient chest pain and the largest size of the aneurismatic tract of thoracic descending aorta rendered an invasive approach ma...

Objectives Aortico-left ventricular tunnel (ALVT) is an extremely rare, abnormal paravalvular communication between the aorta and the left ventricle. Few studies have identified the characteristics and long-term prognosis associated with ALVT. Methods The data of 31 patients with ALVT from July 2002 to December 2019 were reviewed. Echocardiography was performed in all patients during the follow-up period. Results The median age of the patients was 11.5 years. Bicuspid aortic valve and dilatation...

OBJECTIVES This study analysed the patterns of extraction ranges, characteristics, advantages and disadvantages of median sternotomy (MS) and subxiphoid (SX) approaches for extended thymectomy. METHODS This study included patients with anterior mediastinum tumour and myasthenia gravis who underwent extended thymectomy at our institution between 2015 and 2018. There were 5 MS and 6 SX extended thymectomy surgeries with the VINCENT software. On preoperative computed tomography, the thymus area and...

OBJECTIVES Left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation for end-stage heart failure patients has been on the rise, providing a reliable long-term option. For some LVAD patients, longer term LV unloading leads to recovery; hence, the need for evaluating potential myocardial recovery and weaning eligibility has emerged. METHODS All patients who underwent contemporary LVAD explantation at our institution between 2009 and 2020 were included in the study. Patients in New York Heart Association ...
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to assess the quality of video-assisted cervical mediastinoscopy (VACM) in the staging of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) at the Antwerp University Hospital with a focus on test effectiveness indicators, morbidity and unforeseen pN2 results. METHODS All consecutive VACM workups of cases of NSCLC performed between January 2010 and December 2015 were included to assess overall test quality and effectiveness. Quality assurance was performed in accordance ...
