Assessment in Patients After Thoracic Surgery

Lung cancer is the leading cause of death in men and the second in women with a 5 year survival in Europe of less than 15%. One of the methods most used for its treatment is pulmonary rese...

Dual Acupoints Stimulation Alleviates Pulmonary Complication

Stimulation at acupoints could be of beneficial effects during the perioperative period. In this study the investigators tend to verify the effect of dual acupoints stimulation on pulmonar...

Sonography After Thoracic Surgery (SATS)

Lung cancer remains the leading cause of mortality from malignant diseases in both men and women worldwide. Following thoracic surgery and pulmonary resection, patients have a surgically i...

Metabolomic Study in Exhaled Breath Condensate of Thoracic Surgical Patients

Acute lung injury (ALI) following thoracic surgery remains a major source of morbidity and mortality after lung resection. One-lung ventilation (OLV) is usually required in thoracic surger...

Variations of the Lung Compliance During Extracorporeal Circulation and Post Operative Pulmonary Complications

the decrease in thoracopulmonary compliance after cardiac surgery is well known . The investigators hypothesize that the major factor determining pulmonary outcome after cardiac surgery is...

Surgical wound-site inflammation: video-assisted thoracic surgery versus thoracotomy.

Mechanical trauma occurring during pulmonary resection through both video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) or thoracotomy causes profound alterations in cytokines and the cellular network. The aim of ...

Type A aortic dissection with pulmonary hypertension caused by pulmonary artery compression and acute mitral regurgitation.

Regional Thoracic Surgery Quality Collaboration Formation: Providence Thoracic Surgery Initiative.

Surgery quality initiatives improve clinical outcomes in cardiac and general surgery. No mature thoracic surgery (TS) regional effort has been described.

Current Practices in the Management of Pulmonary Ground-Glass Opacities: A Survey of SICT Members.

Several gray areas and controversies exist concerning the management of pulmonary ground-glass opacities (GGOs) and there is a lack of consensus among clinicians on this topic. One of the main aims of...

Aortic sarcoidosis complicated by a pulmonary artery aneurysm.

A 76-year-old woman, who had a history of ocular sarcoidosis, was incidentally found to have a huge pulmonary artery aneurysm, along with aortic, mitral and tricuspid valve insufficiency. She underwen...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A surgical specialty concerned with diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the heart, lungs, and esophagus. Two major types of thoracic surgery are classified as pulmonary and cardiovascular.

Surgery performed on the thoracic organs, most commonly the lungs and the heart.

Endoscopic surgery of the pleural cavity performed with visualization via video transmission.

A complication of multiple rib fractures, rib and sternum fractures, or thoracic surgery. A portion of the chest wall becomes isolated from the thoracic cage and exhibits paradoxical respiration.

Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis can progress to CHRONIC NECROTIZING PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS or hematogenous spread to other organs.
