BACKGROUND Lung injury is a serious complication of surgery. We did a systematic review and meta-analysis to assess whether incidence, morbidity, and in-hospital mortality associated with postoperative lung injury are affected by type of surgery and whether outcomes are dependent on type of ventilation. METHODS We searched MEDLINE, CINAHL, Web of Science, and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials for observational studies and randomised controlled trials published up to April, 2014, comparing lung-protective mechanical ventilation with conventional mechanical ventilation during abdominal or thoracic surgery in adults. Individual patients data were assessed. Attributable mortality was calculated by subtracting the in-hospital mortality of patients without postoperative lung injury from that of patients with postoperative lung injury. FINDINGS We identified 12 investigations involving 3365 patients. The total incidence of postoperative lung injury was similar for abdominal and thoracic

N2 - Nerve-sparing retroperitoneal lymph-node dissection (RPLND) maintains the patients ability to ejaculate postoperatively. However, since testicular cancer patients sometimes have diminished spermatogenesis, questions have been raised as to the advisability of nerve preservation relative to ultimate fertility. Fertility status was assessed in clinical stage A patients by two methods. These included standard semen analysis and a post-RPLND survey. The results show that approximately 75% of nonseminomatous testicular cancer patients who present in clinical stage A have fertility potential as based on semen analysis. Additionally, of those patients responding to the post-RPLND survey who had attempted pregnancy ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Smoking-related dna adducts. T2 - P-postlabeling analysis of 7-methylguanine in human bronchial and lymphocyte dna. AU - Mustonen, Rütta. AU - Schoket, Bernadette. AU - Hemminki, Kari. PY - 1993/1/1. Y1 - 1993/1/1. N2 - 7-methylguanine DNA adducts were determined in macroscopically normal bronchial specimens and peripheral blood lymphocytes of 20 patients undergoing pulmonary surgery. A recently developed 32P-postlabeling assay was applied with anion exchange chromatography as an adduct enrichment method. The material consisted of 13 smokers and 7 non-smokers. The mean bronchial 7-methylguanine levels of 11 smokers and 6 non-smokers were 17.3 and 4.7 adducts/107 nucleotides. In lymphocyte DNA, the respective mean levels were 11.5 and 2.3 adducts/107 nucleotides. The bronchial DNA adduct levels in smokers were statistically higher than those in non-smokers. Among 5 smokers, for whom both bronchial and lymphocyte DNA was available, 7-methylguanine levels correlated in the two ...

The benefits of sentinel lymph node biopsy in treating skin cancer (melanoma) is well established; however, the value of lymph-node dissection, a procedure in which all nodes located nearby metastasis-positive sentinel nodes are surgically removed, remains controversial. Recently, a phase III clinical trial demonstrated that immediate completion lymph-node dissection is not associated with increased melanoma- ...
For operable patients with NSCLC in whom tumour growth is limited to one lobe, lobectomy is the treatment of choice. Intentionally curative radiotherapy is a good alternative if the surgical risk is determined to be (too) high.. Patients in whom lung function is so limited that lobectomy is not possible may be considered for segment resection (preferred) or wedge excision if complete resection using this method is possible.. In principle, if the lung tumour has spread from one lobe to another, a lobectomy plus a wedge resection of the other lobe should be performed. For central tumours, bilobectomy or pneumonectomy may be an option.. If a conventional lobectomy is not possible due to tumour growth up to or past the level of the bronchial ostium, a sleeve lobectomy is advisable because complete resection is possible with this technique even when lung function precludes pneumonectomy.. A sleeve resection of the pulmonary artery should be performed only if the patient cannot tolerate pneumonectomy ...
Results 86 of 670 patients (13%) who had undergone a lung resection developed a PPC. Those patients had a significantly longer hospital LOS in days (13, 95% CI 10.5-14.9 vs 6.3, 95% CI 5.9 to 6.7; p,0.001) and higher rates of ITU admissions (28% vs 1.9%; p,0.001) and 30-day hospital readmissions (20.7% vs 11.9%; p,0.05). Significant independent risk factors for development of PPCs were COPD and smoking (p,0.05), not age. Excluding early postoperative deaths, developing a PPC resulted in a significantly reduced overall survival in months (40, 95% CI 34 to 44 vs 46, 95% CI 44 to 47; p=0.006). Those who developed a PPC had a higher rate of non-cancer-related deaths (11% vs 5%; p=0.020). PPC is a significant independent risk factor for late deaths in non-small cell lung cancer patients (HR 2.0, 95% CI 1.9 to 3.2; p=0.006). ...
Open pulmonary resection is most commonly performed to treat a known intrathoracic malignancy such as lung cancer or to diagnose pathology of a suspicious nodule or mass. Other indications for pulmonary resection include management of thoracic trauma
A major new study using data from the National Cancer Data Base details the impact of annual hospital volume on 30- and 90-day mortality rates. Investigators found that major lung surgery has become progressively safer over the last few decades, although higher death rates at low-volume hospitals and an unexpected increase in mortality at 90 days compared to 30 days were observed. The study further suggests that choosing a center that performs major lung surgery regularly can have a strong impact on survival.
Surgery is the most effective method to cure patients with solid tumors. New techniques in near-infrared (NIR) cancer imaging are being used to identify surgical margins and residual tumor cells in the wound. Our goal was to determine the optimal time and dose for imaging solid tumors using Indocyanine Green. Syngeneic murine flank tumor models were used to test NIR imaging of ICG at various doses ranging from 0 to 10 mg/kg. Imaging was performed immediately after injection and up to 72 hours later. Biodistribution in the blood and murine organs were quantified by spectroscopy and fluorescence microscopy ...

Pulmonary sequestration is an embryonic mass of lung tissue that has no identifiable bronchial communication and that receives its blood supply from 1 or more anomalous systemic arteries. Multiple feeding vessels may be present.
my dear husband was diagnosed in Feb with lung cancer and in pre op process, discovered he had been having blood in urine for a couple of months and was sent to urologist for cysto 3 days prior to lobectomy and he was found to have a tumor in transurethra which was intertwined and twisted which the dr stated he had never seen anything like it...something you read about and hear about but never get to see...Wow...arent we lucky. (his PSA was 2.6 prostate not enlarged) His path report came back as stage IV but he was having his upper lobe removed and this had to wait. the uro stated it wouldnt hurt to wait at least 6 months and once we went back to him after the lung surgery, he would change his story every week that we went to him. I wanted a bone scan, at first he agreed, then he said he didnt need one and all of a sudden wanted to do a TURP. I decided to go for second opinion. In the meantime, we saw an oncologist who had ordered many tests to see if the lung tumor cancer (carcinoid) was any ...
BACKGROUND: Z4032 was a randomized study conducted by the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group comparing sublobar resection alone versus sublobar resection with brachytherapy for high-risk operable patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This evaluates early impact of adjuvant brachytherapy on pulmonary function tests, dyspnea, and perioperative (30-day) respiratory complications in this impaired patient population. METHODS: Eligible patients with stage I NSCLC tumors 3 cm or smaller were randomly allocated to undergo sublobar resection with (SRB group) or without (SR group) brachytherapy. Outcomes measured included the percentage predicted forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1%), percentage predicted carbon monoxide diffusion capacity (DLCO%), and dyspnea score per the University of California San Diego Shortness of Breath Questionnaire. Pulmonary morbidity was assessed per the Common Terminology Criteria for Adverse Events version 3.0. Outcomes were measured at baseline and 3
To be considered a candidate for EPP, a patient must meet several preoperative criteria (Table 122-1). The patient must have a Karnofsky performance status of greater than 70, normal liver and renal function tests, a room air arterial Pco2 of less than 45 mm Hg, and a room air arterial Po2 of greater than 65 mm Hg. While there is no strict age limit, we are hesitant to perform EPP in patients older than 70 years of age. A pulmonary function test that reveals a forced expiratory volume in 1 second (FEV1) greater than 2 L is considered adequate for pneumonectomy. Quantitative ventilation/perfusion scan is indicated if the FEV1 is less than 2 L. The combination of ventilation/perfusion scan and preoperative FEV1 is used to predict postoperative lung function. Patients with a predicted postoperative FEV1 of greater than 0.8 are acceptable candidates for EPP. Patients with a predicted postoperative FEV1 of less than 0.8 L are considered for pleurectomy and decortication (see Chapter 121). ...

The current study proposes to address the question of whether patients cerebral oxygen saturation levels are predictive of their recovery from thoracic surgery. Further, the study poses the hypothesis that a patients poor recovery status goes on to increase a patients risk of developing post-operative morbidities such as pneumonia, arrhythmias and delirium. The aim of this study is to address the observation that some patients struggle more than others in their recovery and that 1) this may be a result of intraoperative cerebral oxygen desaturations and 2) that this may affect their post-operative morbidity. If a potential means of predicting poor outcomes is identified this will lead to further research into how to adjust the associated variables, such as cerebral oxygenation, to improve patient post-operative outcome ...
Ask your surgeon how much weight is safe for you to lift. You may be told not to lift or carry anything heavier than 10 pounds or 4.5 kilograms (about a gallon or 4 liters of milk) for 2 weeks after video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery and 6 to 8 weeks after open surgery.. You may walk 2 or 3 times a day. Start with short distances and slowly increase how far you walk. If you have stairs in your home, go up and down slowly. Take one step at a time. Set up your home so that you do not have to climb stairs too often.. Remember you will need extra time to rest after being active. If it hurts when you do something, stop doing that activity.. ...
After surgery you will have a chest tube placed. It will stay in for several days to a week, depending on your healing process. To ensure we placed your tube in the most optimal location for your lung, we will give you x-rays and an examination. You will need to stay in the hospital while the chest tube is in place. After removal of you chest tube and before you go home, your doctor will confirm that your lung has not re-collapsed. We give you instructions on breathing exercises, called incentive spirometry. These help expand your lungs and dialate your air sacs. This will help prevent pneumonia.. If you smoke, you should stop smoking. Smoking can increase your chance of getting pneumothorax. Smoking cessation will help your body recovery more completely. It will also help with your wound healing treatment.. You should also ask your doctor when you can fly in an airplane again. You will generally need to wait at least 2 weeks, and up to 12 weeks, before using this transportation. Flying in an ...

We have so much in common-- so listen carefully, take a deep breath, and know that things can turn out okay. I was diagnosed at age 48 with rectal cancer. I have two children, a son age 16 and a daughter 12. I also have a great job and wonderful wife. When I got the diagnosis of recital cancer with metastatic disease of two nodules in my right lung, I thought the world was over.. I then decided to relax and move through the motions of treatment-- and focused hard on keeping a positive attitude. When people asked how I feel, I always respond with "really good" or "doing great" and that has helped me immensely. I put out a positive attitude constantly, even when at times I didnt feel that great. Somehow, putting out the positive made the bad times seem better.. I elected to have VATS lung surgery to first remove the nodules (I bypassed biopsy- I just wanted them out to know for sure). The results came back evidencing metastatic rectal cancer but they were removed with clean margins. I next did ...

Anyways, I got the letter last Tuesday that said I am now on the liver transplant list. I read this letter out loud in front of the family the other night not really knowing what it was and almost threw up when I read the words, "You have been activated on the UNOS liver transplant list." I knew it was coming as everyone did, but every time I get a little farther into the process there is a sickening feeling that comes over me. Dont get me wrong, I am thankful for being on the list and the opportunity to be put on the list, but that doesnt take away from the fact that this surgery is HUGE. I get nervous from time to time, not about the surgery itself but about the recovery and knowing it is going to be a long, hard road back. I cant help but think of my grandpa and his lung surgeries and the two hard trips he has been through. It was a long and painful road, physically for him and emotionally for the entire family. I just hate the fact that because of me the family will be going through the ...
