A best evidence topic was written according to a structured protocol. The question addressed was: 'Does continuation of antifibrotics before lung transplantation (LTx) influence post-transplant outcomes in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) with regard to mortality, bronchial anastomotic dehiscence, reoperation for bleeding and wound complications, primary graft dysfunction or longer-term survival and allograft rejection?' A total of 261 articles were found using the reported sear...

Objectives null Acute type A aortic dissection (ATAAD) is a rare but severe condition, routinely treated with emergent cardiac surgery. Many surgeons have the notion that patients with ATAAD tend to come in clusters, but no studies have examined these observations. This investigation was undertaken to study the potential association between the lunar cycle and the incidence of ATAAD. null Methods null We collected information on 2995 patients who underwent ATAAD surgery at centres from the Nordi...

OBJECTIVES Fragmented QRS (fQRS), related to myocardial fibrosis, is an important prognostic marker of cardiovascular events and mortality. Aortic stenosis (AS), the most frequent valvular heart disease in developed countries, causes myocardial fibrosis due to ventricular pressure overload. The current study aimed to investigate whether fQRS is associated with long-term mortality after isolated surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) in patients with severe AS. METHODS A total of 289 patients w...

OBJECTIVES We performed sublobar resections, including thoracoscopic segmentectomy and subsegmentectomy for small lung cancers, and analysed the results of indications and outcomes of thoracoscopic subsegmentectomy. METHODS Between March 2005 and May 2020, 357 consecutive patients underwent thoracoscopic anatomic sublobar resections for lung cancer, including 68 patients undergoing subsegmentectomy. These patients were compared with 289 patients who underwent segmentectomy during the same period...

Objectives null Surgeons will face an increasing number of octogenarians with lung cancer potentially curable by surgery. The goal of this study was to evaluate short- and long-term outcomes after lung resection. null Methods null We performed a single-centre study of consecutive patients ≥80 years old, surgically treated for suspected lung cancer between 2009 and 2016. Age, sex, performance status, lung function, surgical approach, type of lung resection, complications, in-hospital and 30- and ...

Objectives null We evaluated 4384 procedures performed between 1957 and 2018, collected in the National Register for Congenital Heart Defects, conducted on 997 patients with 1823 pulmonary valve replacements (PVRs), including 226 implanted via catheter [transcatheter valve (TCV)]. Main study targets are as follows: TCV benefit, valve type durability, decade-wise treatment changes and procedure frequencies over the lifetime of a PVR patient. null Methods null We studied TCV impact on surgical val...

Mutations of the NT5E gene encoding the cluster of differentiation 73 (CD73) protein have been found in patients with characteristic calcification of joints and arteries (CALJA). CD73 plays a protective role against aortic valve calcification; therefore, its deletion results in aortic valve calcification. However, to date, there are no reports of a patient with CALJA with aortic stenosis. In this study, we describe 2 extremely rare cases of sisters with identical NT5E gene mutation patterns, bot...

Objectives null This study investigates whether the surgical correction of chest deformity is associated with the growth of the lung parenchyma after surgery for pectus excavatum. null Methods null Ten patients with pectus excavatum who were treated by the Nuss procedure were examined. The preoperative and postoperative computed tomography (2.5 ± 1.2 years after surgery) scans were performed, and the Haller index, lung volume and lung density were analyzed using a three-dimensional image analysi...
Objectives null Acute kidney injury (AKI) following surgery involving the heart-lung-machine is associated with high mortality and morbidity. In addition to the known mechanisms, thrombotic microangiopathy (TMA) triggered by the dysregulation of complement activation was recently described as another pathophysiological pathway for AKI following aortic surgery. The aim of this retrospective study was to analyse incidence, predictors and outcome in these patients. null Methods null Between January...
OBJECTIVES We aimed to identify patient- and facility-specific predictors of collective adherence to 4 recommended best treatment practices in operable IIIAN2 non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and test the hypothesis that collective adherence is associated with superior survival. METHODS We queried the National Cancer Database for clinical stage IIIAN2 NSCLC patients undergoing surgery during 2010-2015. The following best practices were examined: performance of an anatomic resection, performanc...
