An 82-year-old male patient presented with a left-sided spontaneous chylothorax. A computed tomographic scan of the chest revealed a cystic tumor in the right upper anterior mediastinum and nodules in...
Moyamoya disease is a chronic cerebrovascular disease characterized by spontaneous and progressive stenosis or occlusion of the internal carotid artery and its branches. Revascularization procedures h...
Eventration of diaphragm is an uncommon disorder in which diaphragmatic muscle is replaced by fibroelastic tissue, either partially or completely. Bilateral eventration is even rarer. We present a cas...
To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report describing robotic beating-heart quadruple all-arterial totally endoscopic coronary artery bypass combined with percutaneous coronary interventio...
This is a randomized, prospective European Multicenter Study comparing complete arterial revascularization of the coronary arteries using arterial graft material exclusively and “conven...
The objective of this study is to evaluate the positional stability and quality of lung isolation provided by the EZ-blocker compared to a DLT for both right and left sided thoracic surger...
Authors hypothesize that mid-term results of total arterial revascularization with using bilateral internal thoracic arteries in in-situ configuration are superior than Y-grafting configur...
This prospective clinical study will compare a powered circular stapler to commercial mechanical staplers for performance issues in patients scheduled to undergo colectomy with left-sided ...
One-lung ventilation (OLV) is required for the most thoracic surgery to facilitate surgical visualization by collapsing the lung. The double-lumen tube (DLT) and Uniblocker are the commonl...
A congenital defect in which the heart is located on the right side of the THORAX instead of on the left side (levocardia, the normal position). When dextrocardia is accompanied with inverted HEART ATRIA, a right-sided STOMACH, and a left-sided LIVER, the combination is called dextrocardia with SITUS INVERSUS. Dextrocardia may adversely affect other thoracic organs.
Inferior and external epigastric arteries arise from external iliac; superficial from femoral; superior from internal thoracic. They supply the abdominal muscles, diaphragm, iliac region, and groin. The inferior epigastric artery is used in coronary artery bypass grafting and myocardial revascularization.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
A congenital coronary vessel anomaly in which the left main CORONARY ARTERY originates from the PULMONARY ARTERY instead of from AORTA. The congenital heart defect typically results in coronary artery FISTULA; LEFT-SIDED HEART FAILURE and MITRAL VALVE INSUFFICIENCY during the first months of life.
The splitting of the vessel wall in one or both (left and right) internal carotid arteries (CAROTID ARTERY, INTERNAL). Interstitial hemorrhage into the media of the vessel wall can lead to occlusion of the internal carotid artery and aneurysm formation.
Diabetes is a lifelong condition that causes a person's blood sugar level to become too high. The two main types of diabetes are: type 1 diabetes type 2 diabetes In the UK, diabetes affects approximately 2.9 million people. There are a...
