The Recurrent Laryngeal Nerves and the Thoracic Surgeon

Khalid Amer
Many thoracic surgeons are terrified to come anywhere near the recurrent laryngeal nerve (RLN), especially on the left side. The reason for this fear is the dreaded complication of damaging the nerve and causing loss of voice, among other serious complications. RLN palsy ranks among the leading reasons for medicolegal litigation of surgeons because of its attendant reduction in quality of life. It is not surprising, therefore, that thoracic surgeons can be timid and self-assuring...

Step-by-Step Thoracoscopic Right Upper Lobe Posterior Segmentectomy

Jeremiah Martin, Jonathan Crist & Marion Hochstetler
The posterior segment of the right upper lobe lends itself to a straightforward anatomic resection. Understanding the anatomy is key, and the authors present two cases that illustrate a stepwise approach.The general steps of a posterior segmentectomy of the right upper lobe:Perform a bronchoscopy prior to the procedure to understand the segmental anatomy, as not all patients will have a typical trifurcated right upper lobe.Begin with a posterior dissection. Identify the bronchus and the take-off...

Simulation of VATS for Lobectomy Using a Lifelike Chest Model

Makoto Yamashita, You Tsukamoto, Takamasa Shibasaki, Shohei Mori, Makoto Odaka & Toshiaki Morikawa
A life-sized chest model with a lifelike texture was developed to simulate thoracoscopic surgery. Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for right lower lobectomy was performed using the model.This novel model was developed using a computed tomography (CT) data obtained from a healthy Japanese man. A mold of the chest organs was created by three-dimensional printing, and then used to cast the model using industrial methods. The major blood vessels and bronchi within the lungs are anatomically...

The New STS Protocol for the Management of Arrests after Cardiac Surgery

Joel Dunning, Aaron Morton, Jill Ley, Rick Bell & John Whitlock
In a discussion filmed at the 2017 STS Annual Meeting in Houston, Texas, four allied health professionals consider the new STS protocol for the management of cardiac arrest after cardiac surgery, an expert consensus statement that was published in January 2017. Joel Dunning of James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough, United Kingdom, is joined by Aaron Morton of the University of Louisville, Kentucky, Jill Ley of the University of California at San Francisco, California, Rick...

Uniportal VATS Right Lower Lobectomy and Lymphadenectomy: Step-by-Step

Hussein Elkhayat, Diego Gonzalez Rivas, Mahmoud Sallam, Tareq Salah, Gamal Agmy & Ahmed Elminshawy
Uniportal VATS resection, done through a single port, adds advantages over multiport VATS approaches regarding pain and cosmesis, yet some surgeons do not adopt it as they fear difficulty manipulating multiple instruments in the same port with the camera. The authors present a case of right lower lobe lobectomy for adenocarcinoma with a step-by-step approach, in which they demonstrate how to use advanced instrumentation in uniportal VATS in order to decrease the number of instruments...

3D VATS Diaphragm Plication

Joel Dunning
This video demonstrates a VATS diaphragm plication in the full 3D in which it was performed. To appreciate the 3-dimensional quality of the video, you will need a 3D screen. The patient had significant shortness of breath and a high and paralyzed left hemidiaphragm. The authors repaired it using one 10 mm port and a 5 mm port.

CTSNet Step-by-Step Series: Midline Sternotomy

Shruti Jayakumar, Leanne Harling, Joel Dunning, Jason Varzaly & James Edwards
This video demonstrates a midline sternotomy. The authors detail the procedure in a step-by-step fashion, using diagrams and surgical video to illustrate key technical elements.

Right Axillary Artery Cannulation: Seldinger Technique

Paolo Magagna, Stefano Auiremma, Giovanni Domenico Cresce & Loris Salvador
The authors present a right axillary artery cannulation in an elderly patient using the Seldinger technique. During axillary artery cannulation, the portion of the axillary artery between the first rib and the medial border of the pectoralis minor muscle is accessed. There are two ways to cannulate the axillary artery:The direct approach: the artery is cannulated directly with the perfusion cannula inserted within a purse string (the Seldinger technique).The indirect approach: the artery is approached...

Infraclavicular Approach for Surgical and Endovascular Management of Paget-Schroetter Syndrome

Daniel Gwan-Nulla
This video demonstrates an infraclavicular approach for the surgical and endovascular management of Paget-Schroetter Syndrome. Also known as effort thrombosis of the axillosubclavian vein, Paget-Schroetter Syndrome is a form of thoracic outlet obstruction that accounts for approximately 1-2% of all venous thromboses. Management includes thrombolysis and surgical decompression. Best practice results are seen with catheter-directed thrombolysis followed by early surgical decompression and angioplasty, as demonstrated in this video.

Women Cardiothoracic Surgeons Took on The New Yorker OR Cover Challenge

Mara Antonoff & Nikki Stamp
The Health, Medicine & the Body Issue of The New Yorker depicting four women surgeons at the operating table has inspired women surgeons around the world to recreate the cover and share their photos as part of the #NYerORCoverChallenge.Women cardiothoracic surgeons took on the challenge, and CTSNet is excited to share the completed photo collage. The photos show teams of women cardiothoracic surgeons, as well as solo surgeons. “Many of us are the lone women...

Robotic Patch Repair of the Right Main Bronchus After Removal of a Bronchogenic Cyst

Gerald JS Tan, Ooi Wey Ming, Royce HF Law, Marco Nardini & Joel Dunning
The authors present a case of a 45-year-old woman who received a pericardial patch repair of the right main bronchus intermedius following removal of a bronchogenic cyst, located in the subcarinal area of the airway. To the authors' knowledge, the da Vinci system and robotic surgery have not previously been applied in bronchial patch repairs in the United Kingdom. The cyst in the subcarinal region compressed the right main bronchus and the posterior heart wall,...
