Sleeve lobectomy represents a safe and effective treatment for central NSCLC to avoid the risks of pneumonectomy. Induction therapy (IT) may be indicated in advanced stages; however, the effect of IT on bronchial anastomoses remains uncertain. The purpose of the study was to evaluate the impact of IT on the complications of the anastomoses.

We, thoracic surgeons, sometimes face a problem of high-caliber mismatch in sleeve lobectomy. The large size disparity between the proximal and distal stump requires not only an appropriate anastomoti...
Dacron tube grafts have been used in the surgical management of cardiovascular disease since the 1970s. Complications at the site of the anastomosis have been well described. Non-anastomotic failure i...
Anastomotic leakage is a frequent complication after gastrointestinal (GI) surgery and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Endoluminal therapy offers numerous advantages compared to surgi...
Anastomotic leakages or staple line defects after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) and primary laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy (LSG), respectively, with consecutive bariatric revisional surgery are ass...
The value of induction therapy in lung transplantation is controversial. According to the ISHLT, only about 50% of patients transplanted within the last 10 years received induction therapy. We reviewe...
Postoperative anastomotic leak is rare but life threatening complication after gastric cancer surgery. Early diagnosis is key to minimize other hazards which are caused by anastomotic leak...
The investigators want to verify whether the surgical outcome of vessel-sparing anastomotic repair in isolated short bulbar urethral strictures is not inferior to the surgical outcome of t...
Optimal fluid balance is critical to minimize anastomotic edema in patients undergoing pancreaticoduodenectomy. This study examined the effects of decreased fluid administration on rates o...
This study is meant to compare two routine diagnostic approaches in patients with bronchial asthma. Patients are challenged with methacholine in order to measure their bronchial response. ...
Anastomotic leak (AL) is a breakdown of a suture line in a surgical anastomosis with a subsequent leakage of the luminal content. Anastomotic leakage occurs commonly in rectal and esophage...
Thermal destruction of the excess bronchial SMOOTH MUSCLE tissue with heat delivered through a catheter assembly attached to a BRONCHOSCOPE. It is often used to control BRONCHIAL HYPERREACTIVITY in severe ASTHMA for better AIRWAY MANAGEMENT.
Left bronchial arteries arise from the thoracic aorta, the right from the first aortic intercostal or the upper left bronchial artery; they supply the bronchi and the lower trachea.
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Preliminary cancer therapy (chemotherapy, radiation therapy, hormone/endocrine therapy, immunotherapy, hyperthermia, etc.) that precedes a necessary second modality of treatment.
Treatment designed to help prevent a relapse of a disease following the successful primary treatments (INDUCTION CHEMOTHERAPY and CONSOLIDATION CHEMOTHERAPY) with a long-term low-dose drug therapy.
GILOTRIF (afatinib) is a kinase inhibitor indicated for the first-line treatment of patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) whose tumors have epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exon 19 deletions or exon 21 (L8...
