Since the late 1990s, and Henrik Kehlet's hypothesis that a reduction of the body's stress response to major surgeries could decrease postoperative morbidity, "Enhanced Recovery After Surgery" (ERAS) care pathways have been streamlined. They are now well accepted and considered standard in many surgical disciplines. Yet, to this day, there is no specific ERAS protocol for chest wall resections (CWRs), the removal of a full-thickness portion of the chest wall, including muscle, bone and possibly skin. This is most unfortunate because these are high-risk surgeries, which carry high morbidity rates...

BACKGROUND: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a heterogeneous group of pathophysiological bases of airway inflammation and its anti-inflammatory response. Aberrant mitochondrial signaling and mitochondrial dysfunction underlie the pathomechanisms leading to COPD. This study aims to investigate the effects of the Yiqigubiao (YQGB) pill, a traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), on Sirtuin 5 (SIRT5) and mitochondrial function in patients with COPD. METHODS: Thirty-four patients with COPD were randomized into oral YQGB or placebo groups concurrent with a 24-week routine treatment...

BACKGROUND: Intracardiac echocardiography (ICE) is a novel technology with certain advantages in treatment of atrial fibrillation (AF), yet there is limited research on the use of ICE in radiofrequency ablation for AF treatment in China. The aim of this study was to investigate the total fluoroscopy time and dose, safety, and effectiveness of ICE guided vs. traditional fluoroscopy (non-ICE) guided radiofrequency ablation for AF in China. METHODS: We conducted a single-center retrospective analysis of patients who underwent ICE or traditional fluoroscopy-guided radiofrequency ablation for AF...

BACKGROUND: Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) has recently emerged as a critical support system for lung function in patients awaiting lung transplantation. This meta-analysis investigates the prognostic factors of lung transplantation following ECMO bridging therapy. METHODS: A comprehensive search was conducted in PubMed, Cochrane Library, Embase, CINAHL, Web of Science, Scopus, and ProQuest databases from inception to August 11, 2023. Included were cohort or case-control studies focusing on prognostic factors of lung transplantation with ECMO bridging therapy...

BACKGROUND: Reinfection of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has raised concerns about how reliable immunity from infection and vaccination is. With mass testing for the virus halted, understanding the current prevalence of COVID-19 is crucial. This study investigated 1,191 public health workers at the Xiamen Center for Disease Control, focusing on changes in antibody titers and their relationship with individual characteristics. METHODS: The study began by describing the epidemiological characteristics of the study participants...

BACKGROUND: The strategy of treatment for tricuspid regurgitation (TR) induced by atrial fibrillation (AF) has not been established. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcomes of surgical treatment for TR induced by AF. METHODS: From 2000 to 2021, a total of 1,301 patients underwent tricuspid valve (TV) surgery. Among them 43 patients who diagnosed as AF induced TR were enrolled. The tricuspid valve-related events (TVRE) included cardiac death, TV reoperation, development of moderate or greater TV disease, congestive heart failure requiring re-admission, and major bleeding or thrombosis...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Blood flow assessment is an emerging technique that allows for assessment of hemodynamics in the heart and blood vessels. Recent advances in cardiovascular imaging technologies have made it possible for this technique to be more accessible to clinicians and researchers. Blood flow assessment typically refers to two techniques: measurement-based flow visualization using echocardiography or four-dimensional flow magnetic resonance imaging (4D flow MRI), and computer-based flow simulation based on computational fluid dynamics modeling...

BACKGROUND: As a culture-independent method, metagenomic next-generation sequencing (mNGS) is widely used in microbiological diagnosis with advantages in identifying potential pathogens, guiding antibiotic therapy, and improving clinical prognosis, especially in culture-negative cases. Mycoplasma hominis ( M. hominis ) mediastinitis is a rare and severe disease for which etiological diagnosis is important but challenging. The application of mNGS in the etiological diagnosis of mediastinitis has seldom been studied...

BACKGROUND: Segmentation of coronary arteries in computed tomography angiography (CTA) images plays a key role in the diagnosis and treatment of coronary-related diseases. However, manually analyzing the large amount of data is time-consuming, and interpreting this data requires the prior knowledge and expertise of radiologists. Therefore, an automatic method is needed to separate coronary arteries from a given CTA dataset. METHODS: Firstly, an anisotropic diffusion filter was employed to smooth the noise while preserving the vessel boundaries...

BACKGROUND: The mortality rate of coronary artery disease ranks first in developed countries, and coronary revascularization therapy is an important cornerstone of its treatment. The postoperative pulmonary complications (PPCs) in patients receiving one-stop hybrid coronary revascularization (HCR) aggravate the dysfunction of multiple organs such as the heart and lungs, therefore increasing mortality. However, the risk factors are still unclear. The objective of this study was to explore the risk factors of PPCs after HCR surgery...

BACKGROUND: Ex vivo lung perfusion (EVLP) is a useful technique for evaluating and repairing donor lungs for transplantation. However, studies examining the effects of perfusate temperature on graft function are limited. Thus, this study aimed to examine these effects during EVLP on ischemic-reperfusion injury in the donor lung. METHODS: Twenty-four male Sprague-Dawley rats were randomly divided into three groups, as follows: no treatment (sham group, n=5), normothermic EVLP (37 °C, n=5), and subnormothermic EVLP (30 °C, n=5)...

BACKGROUND: Limited data are available regarding perioperative outcomes in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who undergo robotic-assisted thoracic surgery (RATS) after neoadjuvant chemoimmunotherapy. This study aimed to compare the perioperative outcomes of RATS and video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) in NSCLC patients after neoadjuvant chemoimmunotherapy. METHODS: The study involved consecutive NSCLC patients treated with minimally invasive surgery (MIS) after neoadjuvant chemoimmunotherapy at a high-volume single center from September 2020 to October 2022...
