BACKGROUND We investigated whether all size-based pathological T4N0-N1 non-small cell lung cancer patients with tumors at any size >7 cm had the same outcomes. METHODS We reviewed non-small cell lung cancer patients with tumors >7 cm who underwent anatomical lung resection between 2010 and 2016. A total of 251 size-based T4N0-N1 patients were divided into two groups based on tumor size. Group S (n = 192) included patients with tumors of 7.1-9.9 cm and Group L (n = 59) as tumor size ≥10 cm. RESUL...

BACKGROUND Tetralogy of Fallot is the most common type of cyanotic congenital heart disease. More postoperative tetralogy of Fallot patients grow up than in the past, and these patients need to be followed-up. OBJECTIVE To investigate the survival and long-term outcomes of patients who underwent total repair of tetralogy of Fallot, and to identify the risk factors for reoperation with pulmonic valve replacement. METHOD A total of 403 patients who underwent total tetralogy of Fallot repair at our...

In current practice, the place of open surgery in managing abdominal aortic aneurysm is a contentious issue. The principal reason being greater applications of endovascular techniques treating increasingly complicated aortic disease. Development of branched and fenestrated devices enabled this, with numbers increasing annually. This meant a good risk patient with a long infrarenal aortic neck and normal diameter non-tortuous iliac arteries may be suitable for both endovascular and open technique...

Enlarged cardiac structures, especially those on left side have the potential to cause airway compression in pediatric patients with chronic heart failure, owing to their proximity to and impact on the trachea-bronchial tree. Ventricular assist devices are effective in decompressing such hearts thereby alleviating airway problems. Aortopexy serves as an effective airway decompressive measure in cases with persistent airway compression despite effective cardiac decompression by ventricular assist...

Penetrating atherosclerotic ulcers present with an insidious onset with a reported mortality of 9%, varying across populations. With vast arrays of risk factors and potentially ominous complications, it is vital to efficiently provide optimum strategies for management. There exists controversy in the literature regarding management, especially for Type B penetrating atherosclerotic ulcers; the decision-making framework encompasses numerous factors in considerations for medical management versus ...

Historically, cardiothoracic surgery has been one of the least diverse specialties in medicine. There has been progress during the last 20 years, but we are far from equality in regard to gender or racial and ethnic makeup of the cardiothoracic surgical workforce. This phenomenon is not isolated to America, but exists throughout the globe. Diversity has been shown to improve productivity and profits in manufacturing and other fields. In addition, diversity has been shown to improve outcomes in s...

INTRODUCTION: There are various reports of air leaks with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). We undertook a systematic review of all published case reports and series to analyse the types of air leaks in COVID-19 and their outcomes. METHODS: The literature search from PubMed, Science Direct, and Google Scholar databases was performed from the start of the pandemic till 31 March 2021. The inclusion criteria were case reports or series on (1) laboratory-confirmed severe acute respiratory syndrom...
