[Ab] Abstract:Good's syndrome, the adult onset hypogammaglobulinemia associated with thymoma has been explained about six decades ago. It generally presents with recurrent infections and several paraneoplastic syndromes including myasthenia gravis, pure red cell aplasia, connective tissue disorders, superior vena cava, Horner's syndrome, lichen planus and inflammatory bowel disease. Lack of B cell, dysfunction of T cell, CD4+ T cell lymphopenia, reversed CD4/CD8+ T cell ratio, autoantibodies against Th17 related cytokines have been respected as the pathogenesis of the immune dysregulation this syndrome. A 57-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with a history of thymectomy due to thymoma (Type A) 6 years ago. He developed weight loss and recurrent persistent diarrhea caused by isospora belli. His chest CT scan revealed bilateral bronchiectasis. His laboratory data showed hypogammaglobulinemia and he was treated by monthly IVIG with the diagnosis of good's syndrome. Nevertheless he referred again with left sided loss of vision because of CMV retinitis and he also developed nail candidiasis. Good's syndrome should be considered in every patient with a history of thymoma and recurrent infection. Immunologic evaluation of these patients including measurement of the serum level of immunoglobulin as well as B cell and T cell subgroups should be performed. Physicians must be aware and think about this entity in patients with adult onset immunodeficiency.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: The role of induction therapy (IT) and its effects on morbidity and mortality of patients receiving tracheal sleeve pneumonectomy (TSP) are unclear. We evaluated early and long-term outcomes of patients who underwent TSP after IT. METHODS: From 1998 to 2015, 32 patients (26 men; median age, 63 years) underwent TSP. Twenty-two patients (69%) received IT (cisplatin-based chemotherapy). The TSPs were all right sided and included three completion pneumonectomies. Superior vena cava resection was combined with TSP in 15 cases. Diaphragmatic and vertebral resection was also associated in 1 case each. RESULTS: Operative mortality was nil. Thirty-day mortality was 9% (n = 3). Major complications occurred in 7 patients (21.8%): bronchopleural fistulas in 3; acute respiratory distress syndrome in 2; cardiac hernia in 1; and empyema in 1. The IT had no significant effects on morbidity and mortality. Resection was complete in 31 patients (97%). Pathologic N status was N0 in 2 cases, N1 in 17, and N2 in 13. Nodal downstaging was diagnosed in 13 of 22 patients (59.1%) who received IT (11 passed from N2 to N1, and 2 to N0). Mean survival was 36 months (range, 1 to 181). Overall 5-year survival and disease-free survival were 30.3% and 27.7%, respectively. Patients receiving IT had a poor survival (p = 0.03). At multivariate analysis, nodal downstaging and adjuvant treatment significantly affected survival (p = 0.035 and p = 0.007, respectively). CONCLUSIONS: Tracheal sleeve pneumonectomy is a feasible but technically challenging surgical procedure and provides acceptable results in terms of early and long-term outcomes. Induction therapy did not significantly affect morbidity and mortality.

[Ab] Abstract:Few areas of venous disease provide a more satisfying experience for both the patient and the vascular specialist than reconstruction for superior vena cava (SVC) syndrome. Relief from severe, frequently incapacitating symptoms of venous congestion of the head and neck is almost instantaneous, and benefit after reconstruction is generally long lasting. This article reviews the etiologic factors, clinical presentation, and diagnostic evaluation of SVC syndrome, and current techniques and results for the endovascular and open surgical treatment of SVC occlusion.

[Ti] Title:Management of IVC Injury: Repair or Ligation? A Propensity Score Matching Analysis Using the National Trauma Data Bank.

[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Ligation can be used as part of damage-control operations under critical conditions after IVC injury. Inferior vena cava ligation could potentially yield greater survival benefit compared with repair after injury. We hypothesized that ligation significantly improves outcomes compared with repair. STUDY DESIGN: The National Trauma Data Bank dataset for 2007-2014 was reviewed. Eligible patients included those sustaining IVC injury who underwent surgical ligation or repair. Data on demographics, outcomes, and complications were collected. Comparative analysis of demographic characteristics, complications and outcomes were performed. RESULTS: There were 4,865 patients identified in the National Trauma Data Bank with IVC injury. A total of 1,316 patients met inclusion criteria. Four hundred and forty-seven patients (34.0%) underwent ligation and 869 (66.0%) underwent repair. Before matching, the ligation group was sicker than the repair group and the in-hospital mortality was significantly higher in the ligation group (43.8% vs 36.2%; odds ratio [OR] 1.37; 95% CI 1.09 to 1.73). One to one propensity score matching generated 310 pairs. After propensity score matching, in-hospital mortality was similar (41.3% vs 39.0%; OR 1.10; 95% CI 0.80 to 1.52). However, IVC ligation was associated with significantly higher complication rates of extremity compartment syndrome (OR 5.23; 95% CI 1.50 to 18.24), pneumonia (OR 1.76; 95% CI 1.08 to 2.86), deep venous thrombosis (OR 2.83 95% CI 1.70 to 4.73), pulmonary embolism (OR 3.63; 95% CI 1.18 to 11.17), and longer hospital length of stay (17.0 days [interquartile range 1.0 to 35.0 days] vs 9.0 days [interquartile range 1.0 to 22.0 days]; p = 0.002). CONCLUSIONS: Inferior vena cava ligation is not superior to repair in terms of decreasing mortality in patients with IVC injury, but it is associated with higher complication rates and hospital LOS.

[La] Language:eng
[Ab] Abstract:PURPOSE: To identify whether long-term symptom relief and stent patency vary with the use of covered versus uncovered stents for the treatment of benign SVC obstruction. METHODS AND MATERIALS: We retrospectively identified all patients with benign SVC syndrome treated to stent placement between January 2003 and December 2015 (n = 59). Only cases with both clinical and imaging follow-up were included (n = 47). In 33 (70%) of the patients, the obstruction was due to a central line or pacemaker wires, and in 14 (30%), the cause was fibrosing mediastinitis. Covered stents were placed in 17 (36%) of the patients, and 30 (64%) patients had an uncovered stent. Clinical and treatment outcomes, complications, and the percent stenosis of each stent were evaluated. RESULTS: Technical success was achieved in all cases at first attempt. Average clinical and imaging follow-up in years was 2.7 (range 0.1-11.1) (covered) and 1.7 (range 0.2-10.5) (uncovered), respectively. There was a significant difference (p = 0.044) in the number of patients who reported a return of symptoms between the covered (5/17 or 29.4%) and uncovered (18/30 or 60%) groups. There was also a significant difference (p = < 0.001) in the mean percent stenosis after stent placement between the covered [17.9% (range 0-100) ± 26.2] and uncovered [48.3% (range 6.8-100) ± 33.5] groups. No significant difference (p = 0.227) was found in the time (days) between the date of the procedure and the date of clinical follow-up where a return of symptoms was reported [covered: 426.6 (range 28-1554) ± 633.9 and uncovered 778.1 (range 23-3851) ± 1066.8]. One patient in the uncovered group had non-endovascular surgical intervention (innominate to right atrial bypass), while none in the covered group required surgical intervention. One major complication (SIR grade C) occurred that consisted of a pericardial hemorrhagic effusion after angioplasty that required covered stent placement. There were no procedure-related deaths. CONCLUSION: Both covered and uncovered stents can be used for treating benign SVC syndrome. Covered stents, however, may be a more effective option at providing symptom relief and maintaining stent patency if validated by further studies.

[Ti] Title:Superior vena cava syndrome secondary to recurrent coronary artery fistula: A case report and literature review.

[Ab] Abstract:RATIONALE: Coronary artery fistula (CAF) is characterized by an abnormal communication of a coronary artery with a cardiac chamber or a great vessel bypassing the capillary bed. Surgical closure of large or symptomatic CAF is the gold standard treatment. However the previously closed CAF still has the possibility to reopen. Superior vena cava syndrome (SVCS) is defined as a condition that occurs when the obstruction of the superior vena cava interrupts blood flow from the head, upper extremities, and thorax to the right atrium and can present a life-threatening situation. In this report, we described a case of SVCS, which was secondary to the compression by a huge aneurysm formed in a recurrent CAF, as a long-term complication associated with surgical treatment of CAF. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 47-year-old woman presented with chief complaint of progressive exertional dyspnea for one month. DIAGNOSES: Superior vena cava syndrome and recurrent coronary artery fistula. INTERVENTIONS: Reoperation for ligation of the fistulous and excision of the aneurysm were performed. OUTCOMES: The patient made an uneventful recovery and her postoperative course through 1-year follow-up was uneventful. LESSONS: First, SVCS is a rare but clinically important postoperative complication of surgical ligation of CAF. Second, surgical ligation of the fistula alone is unlikely to prevent the ectatic course. Therefore, long-term follow-up is mandatory for patients with CAF undergoing surgical closure.

[Ab] Abstract:Polysplenia syndrome is a rare congenital disease characterized by variable thoracic and abdominal anomalies. A man in his 70s was diagnosed with rectal cancer by close exploration for fecal occult blood. A barium enema revealed a type 1 rectal tumor andwith non-rotation of intestine. CT revealed multiple abnormalities: a polyspleen, preduodenal portal vein, congenital absence of the pancreatic tail, bilateral superior vena cava, andbilateral bilobedlung. Basedon these findings, the patient was diagnosedas having rectal cancer with polysplenia syndrome andtreatedwith robotic assistedlaparoscopic low anterior resection. At operation, the whole colon was located in the left side of the abdominal cavity. The whole colon adhered with each other. The ileocecum adheredto the front of the aorta andthe right iliac artery. In the pelvis, anatomical abnormality was not detectedandrectal mobilization andresection was performedas usual. The patient hadno signs of recurrence of the rectal cancer. This is the first case presentation of laparoscopic low anterior resection in a patient with rectal cancer and polysplenia syndrome.

[Ab] Abstract:Children with single ventricle physiology have complete mixing of the pulmonary and systemic circulations, requiring staged procedures to achieve a separation of these circulations, or Fontan circulation. The single ventricle physiology significantly increases the risk of mortality in children undergoing non-cardiac surgery. As liver transplantation for patients with single ventricle physiology is particularly challenging, only a few reports have been published. We herein report a case of successful LDLTx for an 8-month-old pediatric patient with biliary atresia, heterotaxy, and complex heart disease of single ventricle physiology. The cardiac anomalies included total anomalous pulmonary venous return type IIb, intermediate atrioventricular septal defect, tricuspid regurgitation grade III, coarctation of aorta, interrupted inferior vena cava, bilateral superior vena cava, and polysplenia syndrome. Following LDLTx, the patient sequentially underwent total cavopulmonary shunt + Damus-Kaye-Stansel at 3 years of age and extracardiac total cavopulmonary connection (EC-TCPC) completion at 5 years of age; 7 years have now passed since LDLTx (2 years post-EC-TCPC). We describe the details of the management of LTx in the presence of cardiac anomalies and report the long-term cardiac and liver function, from peri-LDLTx through EC-TCPC completion.

[Cp] Country of publication:Netherlands
[La] Language:eng
[Ab] Abstract:BACKGROUND: Studies on the outcomes of surgical repair for supracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous connection through the superior approach are uncommon. METHODS: From January 2004 to January 2016, 198 patients with supracardiac total anomalous pulmonary venous connection underwent side-to-side anastomosis between the common pulmonary vein and left atrium through the superior approach. Kaplan-Meier curve was used to demonstrate the survival estimates. Cox proportional hazard model and competing risk regression model were used to identify risk factors for death and postoperative pulmonary venous obstruction. RESULTS: There were 6 in-hospital deaths and no late deaths. The survival rates at 30 days, 1 year, and 12 years were 97%, 97%, and 97%, respectively. Follow-up was completed in 92.2% of the survivors. Median follow-up was 47 (range, 0-136) months. Twenty-seven patients (14.1%, 27/192) required reoperation for pulmonary venous obstruction, residual atrial septal defect or superior cava vena syndrome. Multivariable analysis showed that preoperative pulmonary venous obstruction (p=0.012), longer duration of ventilation (p=0.011), and emergency surgery (p=0.010) were incremental risk factors for death. Aortic cross clamp time (p<0.001) and preoperative pulmonary venous obstruction (p=0.002) were associated with postoperative pulmonary venous obstruction. CONCLUSIONS: Side-to-side anastomosis through a superior approach in surgical repair of supracardiac TAPVC can achieve satisfactory results.

[Ab] Abstract:Nutcracker syndrome (NCS) is caused by compression of left renal vein (LRV), usually between the aorta and the superior mesenteric artery (SMA). This can lead to obstruction of flow into the inferior vena cava and secondary left renal venous hypertension. Despite potential serious consequences, diagnosing NCS is often challenging, circuitous and commonly delayed. We report an extremely unique case of NCS. A 34-year-old woman presented with left flank pain and discomfort. On investigation, it was found that high pressure in the LRV, due to compression by the SMA, had led to a large venous aneurysm that had caused pelviureteric junction obstruction and hydronephrosis. Management was with stenting of the LRV and coil embolisation of the venous aneurysm with excellent clinical outcome.
