A novel method for troubleshooting vascular injury during anatomic thoracoscopic pulmonary resection without conversion to thoracotomy
BackgroundMassive bleeding caused by vascular injury is considered the most troublesome and dangerous complication during video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) pulmonary resection and is an… Expand
Minimally invasive surgery for congenital diaphragmatic hernia: a meta-analysis
ObjectivesTo compare the safety and efficacy of minimally invasive surgery (MIS) with traditional open surgical approach for congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH).MethodsA literature search was… Expand
Reconstruction of the pulmonary trunk via cardiopulmonary bypass in extended resection of locally advanced lung malignancies
The aim of this retrospective study is to summarize our improvement of surgical procedures for radical resection of left hilar tumors involving the pulmonary trunk and determine its clinical… Expand
Non-grasping en bloc mediastinal lymph node dissection for video-assisted thoracoscopic lung cancer surgery
BackgroundThis study aims to introduce an optimized method named “non-grasping en bloc mediastinal lymph node dissection (MLND)” through video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS).MethodsBetween… Expand
Video‐assisted thoracoscopic surgery versus posterolateral thoracotomy lobectomy: A more patient‐friendly approach on postoperative pain, pulmonary function and shoulder function
We evaluated the physiological benefits following video‐assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy or posterolateral thoracotomy (PLT) lobectomy for lung cancer patients. One hundred and three… Expand

Background Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) has been considered as the better choice for the surgical treatment of resectable non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This study aimed to evaluate… Expand
Trans-inferior-pulmonary-ligament VATS basal segmentectomy: application of single-direction strategy in segmentectomy of left S9+10.
With the extensive application of low-dose computed tomography (CT) screening in lung cancer diagnosis, the detection of early stage lung cancer has increased remarkably (1).
Considering economic reality in calculating the financial burden of epilepsy in China
and its modulation through cognitive interaction in patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) and healthy controls. An increased coactivation of the motor system was found in JME patients… Expand
The application of a single-direction strategy in VATS segmentectomy: left S3 segmentectomy.
A video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) segmentectomy is a technical challenge. This is due to the sophisticated anatomical variations in the segmental bronchus and vessels as well as an… Expand
Chyle leakage in port incision after video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery: case report
A 26-year-old Asian male was found to have chyle leakage from the port incision after video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for excision of pulmonary bullae. The diagnosis was confirmed by oral… Expand
