OBJECTIVES: In patients with oligometastatic non-small cell lung cancer, systemic therapy in combination with local ablative treatment of the primary tumor and all metastatic sites is associated with improved prognosis. For patient selection and treatment allocation, further knowledge about the molecular characteristics of the oligometastatic state is necessary. Here, we performed a genetic characterization of primary non-small cell lung cancer and corresponding brain metastases. METHODS: We retrospectively identified patients with oligometastatic non-small cell lung cancer and synchronous (<3 months) or metachronous (>3 months) brain metastases who underwent surgical resection of both primary tumor and brain metastases...

OBJECTIVES: End-stage congenital heart disease in children with heterotaxy syndrome might necessitate heart transplantation. Heart transplantation in heterotaxy patients can be associated with several technical (e.g. redo, systemic/pulmonary-venous/situs anomalies, pulmonary artery reconstruction), and extra-cardiac (e.g. ciliary dyskinesia, infections, gastrointestinal) challenges. We aim to examine if heterotaxy syndrome is associated with increased early or late transplantation risks...

OBJECTIVES: Barlow's disease is a specific sub-form of mitral valve (MV) disease, characterized by diffuse excessive tissue and multi segment prolapse. The anterolateral mini-thoracotomy represents the standard access for MV regurgitation in many centers. It still remains unclear which surgical technique provides the best results. Therefore, the aim of this study was to compare operative safety and mid-term outcomes after (a) isolated annuloplasty, (b) use of additional artificial chordae or (c) leaflet resection in patients suffering from Barlow's disease undergoing minimally invasive mitral valve repair...

OBJECTIVES: This study aims to explore characteristics and clinical outcomes of patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) in the European Registry for Patients with Mechanical Circulatory Support (EUROMACS). METHODS: This is a retrospective study of EUROMACS participants receiving MCS as bridge-to-transplant, possible bridge-to-transplant, or rescue therapy/bridge-to-recovery from 2011 to 2023 (n = 5,340). Adult and paediatric cohorts were analysed separately...

OBJECTIVES: The Dissected Aorta Repair Through Stent Implantation trial demonstrated positive proximal aortic remodelling following aortic dissection repair with the AMDS Hybrid Prosthesis. In this study, we look to identify predictors of aortic remodelling following aortic dissection repair with AMDS including whether communications between branch vessels and the false lumen predict aortic growth. METHODS: The Dissected Aorta Repair Through Stent Implantation trial included patients who underwent Acute DeBakey type I aortic dissection repair with the AMDS from March 2017-January 2019...

OBJECTIVES: To assess the self-reported current dyspnoea and perioperative changes of dyspnoea in long term survivors after minimally invasive segmentectomy or lobectomy for early-stage lung cancer. METHODS: Cross-sectional telephonic survey of patients alive and disease-free as of March 2023, with pathologic stage IA1-2, non-small cell lung cancer, assessed 1 to 5 years after minimally invasive segmentectomy or lobectomy (performed from January 2018 to January 2022)...

In the current endovascular era, open surgery through left posterolateral thoracotomy (PLT) with moderate to deep hypothermic circulatory arrest (DHCA) remains an alternative for treating chronic distal arch or proximal descending aortic diseases, allowing cardiovascular surgeons to definitively repair the aorta in a single stage. When utilizing this approach, this report illustrates an alternative surgical technique for antegrade body perfusion during cooling, antegrade selective cerebral perfusion (ASCP), and rewarming, through a prosthetic graft on the right subclavian artery (RSA)...

OBJECTIVES: Aim of this multicentre retrospective cohort study is to evaluate technical success, early and late outcomes of thoracic endovascular repair (TEVAR) with grafts deployed upside-down through antegrade access, to treat thoracic aortic diseases. METHODS: Antegrade TEVAR performed between January 2010 and December 2021 have been collected and analyzed. Both elective and urgent procedures were included. Exclusion criteria were endografts deployed into previous or concomitant surgical or endovascular repairs...

OBJECTIVES: Focal intimal disruption is a risk factor for adverse aorta-related events in acute type B intramural haematoma patients. This study evaluated the impact of focal intimal disruption on overall survival with a selective intervention strategy for large or growing focal intimal disruptions. Additionally, this study evaluated the risk factors associated with the growth of focal intimal disruption. METHODS: This retrospective study included all consecutive patients admitted for acute type B intramural haematoma between November 2004 and April 2021...

OBJECTIVES AND METHODS: The management of aortic arch disease is complex. Open surgical management continues to evolve, and the introduction of endovascular repair is revolutionizing aortic arch surgery. Although these innovative techniques have generated the opportunity for better outcomes in select patients, they have also introduced confusion and uncertainty regarding best practices. In New York, we have developed a collaborative group named the New York Aortic Consortium (NYAC) as a means of crosslinking knowledge and working together to better understand and treat aortic disease...
