Between 1960 and 1988, 139 consecutive patients underwent pulmonary resection for metastatic colorectal carcinoma. Median interval between colon resection and lung resection was 34 months. Ninety-eight patients (70.5%) had a solitary metastasis. Wedge excision was performed in 68 patients, lobectomy in 53, lobectomy plus wedge excision in 9, bilobectomy in(More)
The records of all patients who underwent pylorus-preserving pancreatic resection (29 subtotal and 4 total pancreatectomies) during a 10-year period at the Mayo Clinic were reviewed. Thirty-day operative mortality was 6%. Early postoperative morbidity occurred in 45% of patients and necessitated reoperation in four patients. One patient had a hemorrhage(More)
The cases of 96 patients (55 male and 41 female) with primary chondrosarcoma of the chest wall were reviewed. Ages ranged from 17 to 78 years (median, 53.5 years). The tumor involved the rib in 78 patients and the sternum in 18. Seventy-two patients had treatment at the Mayo Clinic, 28 by wide resection, 25 by local excision, and 19 by palliative excision.(More)
Complete revascularization for chronic intestinal ischemia is controversial. Fifty-eight patients (119 arteries) underwent mesenteric revascularization between 1981 and 1988. There were 46 women and 12 men (mean age: 63 years). Sixty percent of patients had three-vessel disease. Twenty-one patients underwent concomitant aortic reconstruction. Operative(More)
Percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty is widely considered to be an acceptable and less expensive alternative to bypass surgery in carefully selected patients. We compared expenditures related to cardiac care for 79 unselected patients undergoing coronary angioplasty with expenditures for 89 unselected patients undergoing elective coronary bypass(More)
This paper reviews the operative management over the past 27 years of 102 patients with chronic mesenteric ischemia, and summarizes recent clinical trends and ongoing research in this area. The most important trends in the diagnosis and management of chronic intestinal ischemia include: (1) increasing use of duplex ultrasound scanning in the initial(More)
Patients needing an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) system, but without suitable access from jugular or subclavian routes present a vexing problem. Such patients would normally undergo thoracotomy for epicardial lead placement. However, for patients who decline such an intervention, there have been no alternatives for them. There is scarce data(More)
