This report describes a non-intubated, subxiphoid, uniportal approach to video-assisted thoracoscopic thymectomy. A laryngeal mask was used as a safety precaution for ventilatory management, and thyme...
Liposomal bupivacaine field block is gaining popularity as a critical element of enhanced recovery after surgery protocols in thoracic surgery. Uniportal thoracoscopic surgery has been reported to res...
Recent advances in the management of early-stage non-small cell lung cancer have focused on less invasive anesthetic and surgical techniques. Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery without tracheal intu...
This study investigated the feasibility and safety of omitting chest tube drainage after subxiphoid thoracoscopic thymectomy.
Observational studies comparing uniportal and multiportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in the treatment of lung cancer have produced conflicting results. We present a Canadian study com...
This study is a prospective cohort study.The main study content is the feasibility and advantages of tubeless uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery in total thymectomy,divided int...
A novel nonintubated thoracoscopic technique is promising to enhance recovery after thoracic surgery. However, the effects of nonintubated technique on specific organ protection in not cle...
A safe and effective surgical environment is important for nonintubated thoracoscopic surgery. The investigators hypothesize that mini-dose succinylcholine can induce ultra-short period of...
The intention of this study is to compare the performance of the single-use I-gel laryngeal mask with the classic laryngeal mask in 50 patients with a BMI>25 during elective surgery. Prima...
Surgerys used in thymectomy for myasthenia gravis and anterior mediastinal tumours have become much less invasive in recent years. In our study, the surgical technique which resected the t...
A type of oropharyngeal airway that provides an alternative to endotracheal intubation and standard mask anesthesia in certain patients. It is introduced into the hypopharynx to form a seal around the larynx thus permitting spontaneous or positive pressure ventilation without penetration of the larynx or esophagus. It is used in place of a facemask in routine anesthesia. The advantages over standard mask anesthesia are better airway control, minimal anesthetic gas leakage, a secure airway during patient transport to the recovery area, and minimal postoperative problems.
Cancers or tumors of the LARYNX or any of its parts: the GLOTTIS; EPIGLOTTIS; LARYNGEAL CARTILAGES; LARYNGEAL MUSCLES; and VOCAL CORDS.
Branches of the vagus (tenth cranial) nerve. The recurrent laryngeal nerves originate more caudally than the superior laryngeal nerves and follow different paths on the right and left sides. They carry efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid and carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.
Branches of the VAGUS NERVE. The superior laryngeal nerves originate near the nodose ganglion and separate into external branches, which supply motor fibers to the cricothyroid muscles, and internal branches, which carry sensory fibers. The RECURRENT LARYNGEAL NERVE originates more caudally and carries efferents to all muscles of the larynx except the cricothyroid. The laryngeal nerves and their various branches also carry sensory and autonomic fibers to the laryngeal, pharyngeal, tracheal, and cardiac regions.
Abnormal accumulation of fluid in tissues of any part of the LARYNX, commonly associated with laryngeal injuries and allergic reactions.
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
