Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for spontaneous pneumothorax--a 7-year learning experience. (1/559)

OBJECTIVES: To determine the effect of increasing experience of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in the treatment of spontaneous pneumothorax (SP) on clinical efficacy and surgical practice. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A prospective study of 180 consecutive operations in 173 patients who underwent VATS for SP by a single surgeon during a 7 year period. RESULTS: 118 patients, mean age 32.1 years (range 13-63 years), were treated for primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) while 55 patients, mean age 65.9 years (range 28-92 years), were treated for secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (SSP). All patients had VAT parietal pleurectomy combined in 162 (90%) patients with stapled bullectomy. At a current median experience of 2.0 years (range 0.4-6.8 years), 12 (6.6%) patients required reoperation for treatment failures within 12 months of surgery--9 patients within 30 days of VATS and 3 for late recurrent pneumothorax. Two patients (both with SSP) died within 30 days of surgery. When compared with PSP, VATS in SSP is characterized by an elderly, male predominance, a longer postoperative stay, a higher mortality rate and a lower rate of late recurrence. With increasing experience of the technique, there has been a significant decrease in treatment failures. In the treatment of PSP, both operating time and postoperative stay have decreased significantly with experience whilst the use of staple cartridges per patient has increased significantly with experience in both PSP and SSP. CONCLUSION: There is a demonstrable 'learning curve' effect on the clinical efficacy and surgical practice of video assisted thoracoscopic surgery for spontaneous pneumothorax.  (+info)

Chylothorax after myocardial revascularization with the left internal thoracic artery. (2/559)

A 38-year-old male underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG). A saphenous vein graft was attached to the left marginal branch. The left internal thoracic artery was anastomosed to the left anterior descending artery (LAD). The early recovery was uneventful and the patient was discharged on the 5th postoperative day. After three months, he came back to the hospital complaining of weight loss, weakness, and dyspnea on mild exertion. Chest X-rays showed left pleural effusion. On physical examination, a decreased vesicular murmur was detected. After six days, the diagnosis of chylothorax was made after a milky fluid was detected in the plural cavity and total pulmonary expansion did not occur. On the next day, both anterior and posterior pleural drainage were performed by videothoracoscopy, and prolonged parenteral nutrition (PPN) was instituted for ten days. After seven days the patient was put on a low-fat diet for 8 days. The fluid accumulation ceased, the drains were removed and the patient was discharged with normal pulmonary expansion.  (+info)

Current opinions and practices in the treatment of spontaneous pneumothorax. (3/559)

The approach to the initial management of spontaneous pneumothorax differs markedly from centre to centre, and it is difficult in practice to establish a standard protocol. This article reviews the concepts behind the British Thoracic Society guidelines, and reports the varying opinions and alternative practices existing currently. There is a need for more evidence-based studies to identify what is the best approach. Based on a review of relevant recent reports, the author attempts to work out an unbiased practical approach that can be used safely and that can possibly give the best overall cost effective results.  (+info)

Thoracoscopic removal of intrathoracic neurogenic tumors: a combined Chinese experience. (4/559)

OBJECTIVE: To review the surgical and clinical results of minimally invasive resection of intrathoracic neurogenic tumors using a video-assisted thoracoscopic technique. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Thoracoscopy has emerged as a possible means for diagnosing and managing various intrathoracic disorders. Benign intrathoracic tumors often are ideal lesions for resection using a video-assisted technique. The authors report on their combined experience with the thoracoscopic resection of 143 intrathoracic neurogenic tumors. METHODS: Between March 1992 and February 1999, 143 patients with intrathoracic neurogenic tumors were diagnosed and underwent resection using video-assisted thoracoscopic techniques in three teaching centers. Case selection, surgical technique, and clinical results were reviewed. RESULTS: The average age of the patients was 40.8 years; 57.3% were male. Thirty-eight patients (27%) had symptoms attributable to the masses. Seventy-two masses were neurofibromas, 33 were neurilemmomas, 7 were paragangliomas, and 31 were ganglioneuromas. All but seven tumors were located in the posterior mediastinum. The masses were on average 3.5 cm in greatest diameter. The mean surgical time was 40 minutes, and the average hospital stay was 4.1 days. There were no major postoperative complications or recurrences to date. Nine patients reported paresthesias over the chest wall during a mean follow-up of 29 months. CONCLUSIONS: Resection of intrathoracic neurogenic tumors using a thoracoscopic technique based on standard surgical indications would seem to be appropriate. Most of these masses are benign and readily removed. For dumbbell tumors, a combined thoracic and neurosurgical approach is mandatory.  (+info)

The effect of lung biopsy on lung function in diffuse lung disease. (5/559)

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect on lung function of lung biopsy used in the diagnosis of diffuse lung disease carried out by an open procedure or by video-assisted thoracoscopy. One hundred and sixteen patients with diffuse lung disease who attended the Royal Brompton Hospital were studied retrospectively. Thirty five patients underwent open lung biopsy, and 33 video-assisted thoracoscopic biopsy and 48 had their diagnosis made without biopsy. All patients underwent lung function tests before and after surgery, or at an interval of 3-6 months in those who did not undergo biopsy. No significant differences were found in changes in lung function between those who had and had not undergone biopsy, and the proportions of patients whose lung function improved or deteriorated were similar. Lung biopsy by an open procedure or by video-assisted thoracoscopy did not differ in its effects on lung function. The results for older patients, those with severe disease and those with fibrosing alveolitis were the same as for the whole group. Open lung biopsy for the diagnosis of diffuse lung disease does not deleteriously affect lung function whether carried out by an open or a minimally invasive procedure.  (+info)

Early experience of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. (6/559)

Consecutive 25 patients (M/F:18/7) underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for various chest illnesses. These included nine cases of pneumothorax, three cases of pericardial effusion, three cases of pleural effusion, four cases of lung lesion requiring either incisional or excisional biopsy, two cases of empyema, one case of traumatic haemothorax, and three cases of mediastinal lesion. The mean age was 36.2 years (range 19-78 years). A total of forty-three procedures were performed. The mean durations of intrapleural chest-tube requirement and hospitalisation following VATS alone were 4.5 days (range: 0-13 days) and 8.3 days (range: 2-25 days) respectively. No intraoperative complication and VATS procedure-related mortality reported. Apart from simple analgesics such as paracetamol or tramadolol, no opiate analgesia was given to patients undergoing only VATS. The results support that VATS is a safe and effective procedure in the management of pulmonary, mediastinal, pericardial and pleural diseases and the treatment of persistent and recurrent spontaneous pneumothorax.  (+info)

Video assisted thoracoscopic bullectomy and acromycin pleurodesis: an effective treatment for spontaneous pneumothorax. (7/559)

The introduction of video assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has led to the development of several endoscopic options for the management of spontaneous pneumothorax. We describe here our experience in the management of primary spontaneous pneumothorax (SP). We carried out 58 VATS procedures on 55 patients during the period 1993-95. There were six conversions to open thoracotomy because of dense adhesions in five patients and a large apical bulla of 20 cm in one. These patients were excluded from the study. The remaining 49 patients underwent 52 VATS procedures. There were 37 males and 12 females with a median age of 23 (range: 15-71) years. The indications for surgery were persistent SP for more than 5 days in 21 (40%), and recurrent SP in 31 (60%). Twenty-six procedures (25 patients) consisted of bullectomy alone (group 1; 1/1/93-30/9/94) and the next 26 procedures (24 patients) included chemical pleurodesis with 2 g of Acromycin (Lederle) in 10 ml of 0.9 normal saline (group 2; 1/10/94-31/12/95). Both groups had a mean follow up of 38 months (range: 36-40). Mean postoperative chest drainage in group 2 (3.1 +/- 1.09) was significantly shorter than in group 1 (4.7 +/- 1.0). Group 2 patients also had a shorter hospital stay (4.8 /- 1.08 vs. 6.76 +/- 1.09). There were five (20%) recurrences in group 1 while only one (4%) occurred in group 2. In view of these results we recommend the routine use of Acromycin pleurodesis in addition to thoracoscopic bullectomy.  (+info)

Surgical strategy of complex empyema thoracis. (8/559)

BACKGROUND: The optimal treatment of empyema thoracis has been widely debated. Proponents of pleural drainage alone, drainage plus fibrinolytic therapy, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgical (VATS) debridement, and open thoracotomy each champion the efficacy of their approach. METHODS: This study examines treatment of complex empyema thoracis between June 1, 1994, and April 30, 1997. Twenty-one men and 9 women underwent 30 drainage/decortication procedures (14 open thoracotomies and 16 VATS) in treatment of their disease. Effusion etiology was distributed as follows: infectious-14; neoplastic-associated-7; traumatic-3; other-6. RESULTS: The mean preoperative hospital stay was 14 +/- 8.8 days, (11.4 +/- 6.5 days for VATS vs 16.8 +/- 10.2 days for thoracotomy). Hospital stay from operation to discharge for thoracotomy patients was 10.0 -/+ 7.2 days (median 8.5 days) and for VATS patients 17.6 -/+ 16.8 days (median 11 days). These differences were not statistically significant. Duration of postoperative thoracostomy tube drainage was 8.3 -/+ 4.6 days for thoracotomy patients and 4.7 -/+ 2.8 days in the VATS group (p = 0.01). Operative time for the thoracotomy group was 125.0 -/+ 71.7 minutes, while the VATS group time was only 76.2 -/+ 30.7 minutes. Estimated blood loss for the thoracotomy group was 313.9 -/+ 254.0 milliliters and for the VATS group 131.6 -/+ 77.3 milliliters. Three of the 30 patients (10.0%) required prolonged ventilator support (>24 hours). Morbidity included one diaphragmatic laceration (VATS group) and one thoracic duct laceration (thoracotomy). Two VATS procedures (6.7%) required conversion to open thoracotomy for thorough decortication. CONCLUSIONS: The surgical approach to empyema thoracis is evolving. In the absence of comorbid factors, the significantly lower requirement for chest tube drainage time in the VATS patients suggests that this modality is an attractive alternative to thoracotomy in the treatment of complex empyema thoracis.  (+info)

Surgery is the standard of care for early-stage lung cancer, but the best surgical approach is yet to be determined. Minimally invasive surgery, such as Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS), is now the preferred approach over traditional open surgery.1 In a study presented at the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) 2019 World Conference on Lung Cancer (WCLC) at Barcelona, Spain, the data showed VATS is equivalent to open lobectomy for early-stage lung cancer in terms of oncologic outcomes and patients quality of life.2 VATS in the early-stage lung cancer. Complete anatomic resection via open thoracotomy has been the conventional approach in the early-stage lung cancer, but since the introduction of VATS, better clinical outcomes can be achieved. Nowadays, VATS is being performed more commonly as a first-line treatment for the early-stage lung cancer.3. The VATS procedure is conducted through small incisions, called key holes in the chest wall. Then, a tiny ...
The term video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) describes minimally invasive thoracic surgical procedures performed with the aid of a video camera to avoid more invasive open thoracotomy. VATS typically involves one small, 4- to 8-cm incision fo
The thoracoscopic surgery always requires not only an appropriate depth of anaesthesia, but also a quiet and wide operative field. Thats why anaesthesia plays a critical role in thoracoscopic surgery.. General double-lumen endotracheal intubated anesthesia with one-lung ventilation, has been accepted mandatory for Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) although several adverse effects can derive from this type of anesthesia like intubation-related throat injury, ventilator-induced lung injury, arrhythmia and so on. The investigators hypothesize that VATS could be performed under the no-intubated thoracic epidural anesthesia (NTEA) to avoid general anesthesia related risks.. Some cases have been reported to prove the safety and feasibility of NTEA in uncomplicated VATS. However, the comparison of NTEA and general anesthesia has been rarely investigated in such a larger magnitude number and such operation varieties. The investigators hypothesize NTEA could result in less inflammations, lower ...

Although spontaneous pneumothorax may be treated conservatively by simple observation or chest tube insertion, up to 50% of patients treated conservatively may experience recurrence in subsequent months or years.. Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is a minimally-invasive surgical approach to treat spontaneous pneumothorax and reduce the risk of recurrence. Compared to open thoracotomy, VATS may facilitate a faster recovery and lead to earlier home discharge.. Totally-intravenous anesthesia (TIVA) with propofol and remifentanil is a useful anesthetic technique for VATS, as the drugs are rapidly eliminated after the end of the procedure, leading to fast recovery from anesthesia.. One drawback of ultra-short-acting opioid remifentanil is residual hyperalgesia after the end of the infusion, particularly after VATS, which is associated with relatively short but intense pain after surgery.. Intravenous morphine, administered just before the end of anesthesia, is the typical choice for pain relief ...
Uniportal vs . triportal video-assisted thoracic surgery in the treatment of primary pneumothorax-a propensity matched bicentric study
Pulmonary vein thrombosis (PVT) and cerebral infarction are rare but critical complications after video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS). We experienced two cases of massive middle cerebral artery infarction after VATS for the left upper lobe. Although the precise source of their embolus was never identified, both cases were clinically suspected PVT. Unfortunately, case 2 died because of progressive cerebral herniation. We decided to perform contrast-enhanced computed tomography routinely after VATS for the left upper lobectomy (VATS-LUL) after these cases. Case 3, a 79-year-old female patient, underwent VATS-LUL for lung cancer. She developed PVT in the stump of the left upper pulmonary vein on postoperative day 4. Anti-coagulation therapy was begun immediately and continued for 3 months. She was free of complications 7 months after the operation. PVT and cerebral infarction may occur after VATS-LUL. Appropriate postoperative management is required to recognize PVT and to prevent life-threatening

A 56-year-old woman visited our hospital for mild exertional dyspnea. Radiological investigations revealed a giant bulla of the left lung that was treated with video-assisted thoracoscopic bullectomy. The result of treatment was a better stamina, and, more strikingly, a major change of voice.
Multimodal anaesthesia, combining epidural catheter and general anaesthesia, is a common technique in thoracic surgery, however, epidural catheter placement is not always possible. Recently, erector spinae plane block has been described, which provides analgesia like that of the epidural block, although unilateral, and which has been used in various procedures at thoracic level. At present, there are no studies comparing the efficacy or safety of this block with those commonly used in thoracic surgery. However, its safety profile and contraindications seem different from those of the epidural catheter, since its placement is done under ultrasound view, the needle introduction is done in plane and the ultrasound target, the transverse process, is easily identifiable and is relatively remote from major neural or vascular structures and the pleura ...
Introduction. Lung resections using video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for lung cancer have been performed for more than 20 years.1-3 However, it was only after the publication of studies in the early 2000s detailing the extensive experience from a single center with very good results,4 and a multi-center study of 11 surgeons from six centers who underwent certification to assure the uniformity of the procedure,5 that lobectomies using VATS with systematic lymph node dissection became a widespread standard procedure for early-stage non small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) in many thoracic surgery departments. The procedure has been shown to decrease postoperative morbidities, shorten length of hospital stay,6 and has a comparable five-year survival rate.7,8. A number of meta-analyses on the safety and effectiveness of VATS lobectomies in the early stages of NSCLC suggest lower relapse rates and lower five-year mortality rates in VATS patients,9,10 although the recent report published by ...

There are numerous pain management options for VATS, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), epidural analgesia, systemic opioids, paravertebral block (PVB), patient-controlled analgesia (PCA), and surgical wound infiltration. The researchers have demonstrated that PVB, which results in lower cumulative dezocine doses and produces fewer side effects than PCA, can provide effective pain relief for patients undergoing VATS. However, TEA has been regarded as the gold standard for managing acute pain after thoracic surgery. The aim of this study is to test whether PVB has similar pain control when compared with TEA ...

BACKGROUND: Three-dimensional (3D) vision systems are available for video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS). It is unclear whether 3D-VATS is superior to bidimensional (2D) VATS systems.. METHODS: We analyzed patients who received 3D-VATS (n = 171) or 2D-VATS (n = 228) lobectomy in a single institutional retrospective comparative study of 399 patients with resectable lung cancer conducted from June 2012 to December 2017. The operative and perioperative data were compared between the 2 groups.. RESULTS: Operative time, length of hospital stay, number of dissected lymph nodes, and rate of postoperative complications were similar in both groups. In the 3D group, there was no conversion to thoracotomy for intraoperative major vascular injuries, while conversion to an open procedure for uncontrolled bleeding was recorded in 4 (1.7%) patients in the 2D group. Reoperation for hemostasis and/or aerostasis occurred in 6 (2.6%) patients of the 2D group (p = 0.04).. CONCLUSION: Nonrandomized comparison of ...
Thoracic surgery involves caring for patients with diseases of the chest, excluding the heart. This includes lung cancer and tumors of the mediastinum (the area around the heart) as well as esophageal and plural diseases. Thoracic surgery is often performed using a minimally invasive technique employing a camera, known as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, or VATS.

The purpose of our study was to estimate the influence of estimated intraoperative blood loss (EIBL) on postoperative cardiopulmonary complications (PCCs) in patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). We conducted a single-center retrospective analysis on the clinical data of consecutive patients in our institution between April 2015 and February 2016. Demographic differences between PCC group and non-PCC group were initially assessed. Receiver operating characteristic (ROC) analysis was performed to determine the threshold value of EIBL for the prediction of PCCs. Demographic differences in the PCC rates and length of stay between two groups of patients divided by this cutoff were further evaluated. A multivariable logistic-regression model involving the clinicopathological parameters with P-value| 0.05 was finally established to identify independent risk factors for PCCs. A total of 429 patients with operable NSCLC were included
Video assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomies have been instrumental in the evolution of thoracic surgical oncology since its introduction in the early 90s. Although there is no robust data to confirm or refute its superiority over open conventional lobectomy, there have been a number of meta-analyses which have shown that VATS is safe and feasible for those undergoing radical resection for cancer. Over the years, VATS lobectomy has continued to evolve with newer techniques, less ports and better instruments. There is now an interest in performing uniportal VATS lobectomy and this is now moving to one without a need for incision in the intercostal space. Microlobectomy, originally envisaged by a group of surgeons from 6 different centres and involves using subcentimeter incisions alongside a subxiphoid utility port. Some of the technical disadvantages of VATS are that the images are 2-dimensional (2D), there is limited depth perception; and manoeuvring rigid instruments within the ...

Post-operative pain after minimally invasive video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in adults is commonly managed with oral and parenteral opioids and invasive regional techniques such as thoracic epidural blockade. Emerging research has shown that the novel erector spinae plane (ESP) block, can be employed as a simple and safe alternative analgesic technique for acute post-surgical, post-traumatic and chronic neuropathic thoracic pain in adults. We illustrate this by presenting a paediatric case of VATS, in which an ESP block provided better analgesia, due to greater dermatomal coverage, as well as reduced side-effects when compared with a thoracic epidural that had previously been employed on the same patient for a similar procedure on the opposite side ...

In PubMed alone, since 1962 there have been over two hundred published articles on the surgical approach for the treatment of TIS. The open technique peaked its scientific interest in the early 1990s. Over the last couple of years, the international community is exploring the VATS approach, which is gaining popularity. We anticipate the thoracoscopic approach to reach its topmost in the following two decades following a Gaussian distribution.. ...

Progress in thoracic surgery has mirrored that of general surgery, with many open procedures giving way to minimally invasive techniques. Although the realm of trauma has traditionally been immune to this phenomenon, it too has undergone refinement. Perhaps the most striking example of a shift towards minimally invasive approaches in trauma has been that of retrograde endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta in lieu of resuscitative emergency department thoracotomy.1 Additional examples of this trend include video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy for both malignant and nonmalignant pulmonary lesions, endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) guided mediastinal lymph node biopsy, navigational bronchoscopy, and endoscopic approaches to esophageal pathology. ...

Although video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has been often used and thoracic surgical procedures have shifted to minimally invasive approach since the early 1990s, there has been almost no significant reduction in the rate of early rethoracotomy.[3] Furthermore, the mortality rates following rethoracotomy are still high.[7] In this study, initial indication of surgery in 15 of 16 patients with postoperative mortality following rethoracotomy was non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). For this reason, it can be said that postoperative mortality is much higher particularly in patients with malignant disease than in patients having benign pathologies (28.3% vs. 7.7%).. The rate of rethoracotomies performed due to early complications was 2%. This rate was worthwhile due to the large number of patients. While the rates of thoracotomy due to early complications following VATS are lower, this rate gets higher after thoracotomy. In a current study, the rate for VATS was reported as 0.6%, whereas ...
Treatment usually begins with medical remedies, which do not involve surgery. These treatments include astringent ointments and salve, electrical stimulation and medications. If medical treatments fail, some positive results have been reported with local injections to block the sweating nerves.. Generally, surgery is considered only after less invasive treatments have failed to relieve symptoms. Washington University thoracic surgeons offer a surgical center for St. Louis area patients with hyperhidrosis who have tried other treatments unsuccessfully. They perform a VATS (video-assisted thoracic surgery) sympathectomy, a minimally invasive operation in which a specific portion of the main sympathetic (sweating) nerve is removed. The operation, which removes about three to four inches of nerves that control the sweat glands, doesnt affect the patients muscle function or sensation but greatly reduces sweating in the hands and/or the armpits.. The operation is performed on both sides and ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Intraoperative Ultrasound-Guided Excision of Cardiophrenic Lymph Nodes in an Advanced Ovarian Cancer Patient. AU - Moro, Francesca. AU - Uccella, Stefano. AU - Testa, Antonia Carla. AU - Scambia, Giovanni. AU - Fagotti, Anna. PY - 2018/11/1. Y1 - 2018/11/1. N2 - Objective Ovarian cancer is commonly diagnosed at an advanced stage. Complete macroscopic eradication of the disease is associated with improved prognosis. In this setting, the surgical resection of enlarged cardiophrenic lymph nodes (CPLNs) can help to achieve cytoreduction to no gross residual disease. During surgery, CPLN removal is usually performed either via video-assisted thoracic surgery or through a large transdiaphragmatic or subxiphoid incision. In the present case, we propose the use of an intraoperative transdiaphragmatic ultrasound to confirm preoperative imaging and to obtain a precise localization of the suspicious CPLNs. Methods A 50-year-old woman without peritoneal carcinomatosis was diagnosed with ...
In Mr. Ps case, lymphoma-specifically Hodgkins lymphoma-was the correct diagnosis. In Hogkins, both plain films and CT will demonstrate anterior mediastinal and paratracheal nodes as the most frequently involved groups.1 In most cases, the lymphadenopathy is bilateral but asymmetrical. The findings of paratracheal nodes on the patients CT demanded further investigation. Mr. P underwent thoracentesis, which demonstrated yellow, hazy fluid. Interventional radiology fine-needle aspiration showed lymphoid cells with fibrous and adipose tissue. Lymphoid cells were a mixture of B and T cells. Video-assisted thoracic surgery biopsy demonstrated Reed-Sternberg cells.Signs and symptoms of Hodgkins lymphoma include fever (,38°C), night sweats (drenching and recurrent), weight loss (significant only if at least 10% of body weight in past six months), pruritus, persistent fatigue, painless swelling of lymph nodes, pain of involved regions after alcohol intake, splenomegaly (30%), and hepatomegaly ...
Kirschner wire (K‑wire) migration into thoracic cavity and organs are uncommon but can have fatal complications. A 60‑year‑old gentleman had repair of dislocated left acromioclavicular joint with K‑wire, which migrated, from the joint into left lung and mediastinum. He was successfully treated by thoracoscopic retrieval of migrated K‑wire.
If an event occurs, the surgeon should initially apply pressure, release tension on the lobe, and acquire adequate back-up, if needed. Once the injury can be assessed, the decision to repair or convert to open thoracotomy should be made. Conversion can be done through a natural extension of the incision or a standard posterolateral thoracotomy.
