Extensive Lung Resection for Nontuberculous Mycobacterial Lung Disease with Multilobar Lesions.

Katsuo Yamada, Yukio Seki, Taku Nakagawa, Yuta Hayashi, Mitsuaki Yagi, Masahiro Sano, Kenji Ogawa,

Nontuberculous mycobacterial lung disease often spreads to multiple lobes, and extensive lung resection (ELR) is sometimes required to control the disease. However, the safety and feasibility of ELR for nontuberculous mycobacterial lung disease remain unclear. This retrospective study included patients with nontuberculous mycobacterial lung disease who underwent adjuvant lung resection. ... Read more >>

First report of a trifecta bioprosthesis sudden onset three leaflet detachment.

Guillermo Reyes, Emilio Monguio, MiguelAngel Gomez-Marino, Vicente Gomez-Tello, JoseMaria Cortina,

Acute bioprosthesis failure is an uncommon event that may require urgent surgery. This is even less frequent when it is not associated to endocarditis, thombus formation or structural valve deterioration. We describe for the first time an acute complete detachment of the three leaflets of a Trifecta tissue valve six ... Read more >>

Ming-Sing Si, John V Conte, Jennifer C Romano, Matthew A Romano, Nicholas D Andersen, Marc W Gerdisch, John P Kupferschmid, Andrew C Fiore, Mamdouh Bakhos, Juan J Bonilla, J Ryan Burke, J Scott Rankin, Lawrence M Wei, Vinay Badhwar, Joseph W Turek,

BACKGROUND:Unicuspid aortic valves (UAV; Sievers Type 2 bicuspid) are characterized by major fusion/clefting of the right/left (R-L) coronary commissure, and minor fusion of the right/non (R-N) commissure. Repair has been difficult because of two fusions, variable relative sinus sizes, and peripheral leaflet deficiencies or tears after balloon valvuloplasty. METHODS:Twenty UAV ... Read more >>

Robert E Merritt, Mahmoud Abdel-Rasoul, Morgan Fitzgerald, Desmond M D'Souza, Peter J Kneuertz,

BACKGROUND:Early stage Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is potentially curable with surgical resection. The overall survival rate for early stage NSCLC may be determined by the healthcare facility type where patients receive their lung cancer treatment. METHODS:A total of 103,748 cases with the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) clinical ... Read more >>

Angelika Muter, Haley M Evans, Kimberlee Gauvreau, Steven Colan, Jane Newburger, Pedro J Del Nido, Meena Nathan,

BACKGROUND:Outcomes after the arterial switch operation (ASO) for d-transposition of the great arteries (d-TGA) have improved significantly since its inception in the 1980's. This study reviews contemporaneous outcomes and predictors for late reinterventions following ASO. METHODS:We retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent ASO for d-TGA from 1997-2017. Technical Performance Score (TPS; ... Read more >>

Early infant symptomatic patients with TOF-APV: Pulmonary artery management and airway stabilization.

Oliver S Chow, David M Hoganson, Aditya K Kaza, Mariana Chávez, Firat H Altin, Gerald R Marx, Kevin G Friedman, Russell W Jennings, Christopher W Baird,

BACKGROUND:Tracheobronchomalacia and airway obstruction from severely dilated pulmonary arteries in Tetralogy of Fallot with absent pulmonary valve (TOF-APV) has been associated with high rates of respiratory failure and mortality (15-25%). It is not known whether aggressive pulmonary artery and/or direct airway intervention during early definitive cardiac repair improves outcomes. METHODS:Retrospective ... Read more >>

Experience and Outcomes of Surgically Implanted Melody Valve in the Pulmonary Position.

Eric N Feins, Mariana Chávez, Ryan Callahan, Pedro J Del Nido, Sitaram M Emani, Christopher W Baird,

BACKGROUND:Multiple congenital cardiac malformations require pulmonary valve replacement (PVR) and/or right ventricular outflow (RVOT) reconstruction. PVR remains challenging in children due to limited growth potential of prosthetic valves. We evaluated our outcomes in patients undergoing surgical implantation of a Melody valve in the RVOT. METHODS:Data was retrospectively collected for 23 ... Read more >>

Unusual case presentation: Primary Squamous Cell Carcinoma of sternum.

Niharika Rajan Garach, Praveen Shrinivas Kammar, Akshay Deshpande, Vinita Pandey, Sanket Mehta,

Primary Squamous cell carcinoma of the sternum is very rare. Imaging features are not specific and biopsy may help identify the pathology. Positron Emission Tomography scan helps rule out a primary focus elsewhere. The treatment will be surgical management, if operable. We encountered a case of primary squamous cell carcinoma ...
