OBJECTIVE: Chemoradiation followed by esophagectomy is a standard treatment option for locally advanced esophageal cancer (LAEC) patients. Esophagectomy is a high-risk procedure, and recent evidence suggests select patients may benefit from omitting or delaying surgery. This study aims to compare surgery versus active surveillance for LAEC patients with complete clinical response (cCR) after neoadjuvant chemoradiotherapy (nCRT). METHODS: Decision analysis with Markov modelling was utilized...

OBJECTIVE: Despite guideline recommendation, cardiac rehabilitation (CR) following cardiac surgery remains underutilized, and the extent of interhospital variability is not well understood. This study evaluated determinants of interhospital variability in CR use and outcomes. METHODS: This retrospective cohort study included 166,809 Medicare beneficiaries undergoing cardiac surgery who were discharged alive between 07/01/2016 and 12/31/2018. CR participation was identified in outpatient facility claims within a year of discharge...

OBJECTIVES: Symptomatic neonates and infants with Ebstein Anomaly (EA) require complex management. A group of experts was commissioned by the American Association for Thoracic Surgery to provide a framework on this topic focusing on risk stratification and management. METHODS: The EA Clinical Congenital Practice Standards Committee is a multinational and multidisciplinary group of surgeons and cardiologists with expertise in EA. A citation search in PubMed, Embase, Scopus, and Web of Science was performed using key words related to EA...

OBJECTIVE: Evaluate the safety and efficacy of a transaortic approach to midventricular and apical septal myectomy in patients with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy with left ventricular outflow tract and/or midventricular obstruction. METHODS: From 1/2018 to 8/2023, 940 patients underwent transaortic septal myectomy at Cleveland Clinic, of whom 682 (73%) had midventricular and/or apical resection. Patients who underwent isolated basal myectomies were excluded. Templated operative reports designated septal regions resected as basal (opposition to mitral valve up to the leaflet tips), midventricular (leaflet tips to just beyond the papillary muscle heads), and apical (apical third of the ventricle)...

BACKGROUND: The association between the prevalence of cirrhosis and the types of Fontan operations remains unclear. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective chart review of 332 patients who underwent the Fontan procedure at our institution. Four patients who underwent the atriopulmonary connection Fontan were excluded from the analysis. Patients who had intracardiac-extracardiac conduit (126) between 1989 and 2021 were pooled with those having extra-cardiac conduit (ECC) (134)...

OBJECTIVES: Traditional criteria for intervention on an asymptomatic ascending aortic aneurysm has been a maximal aortic diameter of ⩾5.5cm. The 2022 ACC/AHA aortic guidelines adopted cross-sectional aortic area/height ratio, aortic size index (ASI) and aortic height index (AHI) as alternate parameters for surgical intervention. The objective of this study was to evaluate the impact of using these newer indices on patient eligibility for surgical intervention in a prospective, multicenter cohort with moderate sized ascending aortic aneurysms between 5...

OBJECTIVE: Females are less likely to receive guideline-recommended cardiovascular care, but evaluation of sex-based disparities in cardiac surgical procedures is limited. Receipt of concomitant atrial fibrillation (AF) procedures during non-mitral cardiac surgery was compared by sex for patients with preoperative AF. METHODS: Patients with preoperative AF undergoing coronary artery bypass grafting and/or aortic valve replacement at any of the 33 hospitals in Michigan from 2014-2022 were included...

OBJECTIVES: Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) comparing transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) to surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) demonstrate conflicting evidence, particularly in low-risk patients. We aim to reevaluate the evidence using Trial Sequential Analysis (TSA), balancing type I and II errors, and compare to conventional meta-analysis (cMA). METHODS: Databases were searched for RCTs, which were divided into higher-risk and lower-risk RCTs according to a pragmatic risk classification...

OBJECTIVE: Limited evidence exists regarding the efficacy of preoperative exercise (PE) in reducing short-term complications after minimally invasive surgery in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This study aims to investigate the impact of PE on short-term complications following minimally invasive lung resection. METHODS: In this prospective, open-label, randomized (1:1) controlled trial at Xiangya Hospital, China (Sep 2020-Feb 2022), patients were randomly assigned to a PE group with 16-day alternate supervised exercise or a control...

BACKGROUND: This study evaluates the impact of donor age on outcomes following donation after circulatory death (DCD) heart transplantation. METHODS: The UNOS registry was queried to analyze adult recipients who underwent isolated DCD heart transplantation from 1/1/2019 to 9/30/2023. The cohort was stratified into two groups according to donor age, where advanced donor age was defined as ≥40 years. Outcomes were 90-day and 1-year post-transplant survival...

OBJECTIVE: Severity for pectus excavatum includes Haller index >3.25. An extremely high Haller index (≥8) may influence surgical approach and complications. This study reviews outcomes of high Haller index patients after repair. METHODS: A single institution retrospective analysis was performed on adult patients with Haller index ≥8 undergoing pectus excavatum repairs. For outcomes, a propensity-matched control group with a Haller index ≤4 was utilized...
