  • Modified Toupet Partial Fundoplication Modified Toupet Partial Fundoplication with Anterior Dor Flap in Treatment of Ac 02:53 - 3 years ago What happens during fundoplication? During the fundoplication procedure, the part of the stomach that is closest to the entry of the esophagus (the fundus of the stomach) is gathered, wrapped, and sutured (sewn) around the lower end of the esophagus and the lower esophageal sphincter. (The gathering and suturing of one tissue to another is called plication.) This procedure increases the pressure at the lower end of the esophagus and thereby reduces acid reflux. Also, during fundoplication, other surgical steps are frequently taken that also may reduce acid reflux. For instance, if the patient has a hiatal hernia (which occurs in 80% of patients with GERD), the hernial sac may be pulled down from the chest and sutured so that it remains within the abdomen. Additionally, the opening in the diaphragm through which the esophagus passes from the chest into the abdomen may also be tightened. Fundoplication may be done using a large incision (laparotomy or thoracotomy) or a laparoscope, which requires only several small punctures in the abdomen. The advantage of the laparoscopic method is a speedier recovery and less post-operative pain. What happens during fundoplication? During the fundoplication procedure, the part of the stomach that is closest to the entry of the esophagus (the fundus of the stomach) is gathered, wrapped, and sutured (sewn) around the lower end of the ...

Unlike traditional open-heart surgery in which the sternum is cut and spread open, in a ThoraCAB minimally invasive procedure, we a make small incision at the side of the chest to gain access to the heart to perform the surgery. We use the da Vinci Surgical System to obtain internal mammary arteries for bypass graphs. The initial incision is extended to a total length of 3 to 5 inches. We then use a rib retractor and operate directly on the heart. Featuring: Valluvan Jeevanandam, MD, Professor and Chief, Section of Cardiac & Thoracic Surgery

  • Dr. Carlo Astini - Post mediastinal tumor-Ganglioneuroblastoma - Hopital de Balbala - Djibouti.upd A rare case of nodular ganglioneuroblastoma of the posterior mediastinum presented in a 13 years old boy - with a history of cough and loss of weight for 1 year. X rays and CT scan showed a posterior mediastinal mass of about 18 cm. Surgery was done via a posterolateral thoracotomy through the 5th is The post op recovery was uneventful; The discharge was on day V post op Histology showed a nodular ganglioneuroblastoma: the bulk of the lesion shows the appearence of ganglioneuroma but there is abrupt transition to a smaller nodule composed of cytologically uniform neuroblasts ( synaptophysin positive). The cytologically malignant component has low mitosis-karyorrhexis index which is a good prognostic sign. NODULAR GANGLIONEUROBLASTOMA is a tumor of intermediate degree of malignancy arising from nerve tissue. This rare tumor has a yearly occurrence of less then 5 per 1.000.000. Ganglioneuroma is a benign tumor while Ganglioneuroblastoma is generally malignant , can be localized to one area or it may be widespread, but it is usually less aggressive than a neuroblastoma. The presentation is mainly as an abdominal mass or a posterior mediastinal mass seen at a chest x rays, but the tumor can also occur in other regions of the body. The prognosis depends on the size of the tumor and on the extent of areas in which the neuroblastoma is present and from the mitosis - karyorrexis index in the cytological malignant component of the tumor : the lower the index the better is the ...
  • Epicor Cardiac Ablation LP (Low Profile) Thoracotomy Animation The Epicor LP system has a lower profile (smaller relative to the first generation technology) as well as other features designed to facilitate easier device introduction and placement around and on patients' hearts. In addition, the Epicor LP System is equally suited for use in both closed-chest procedures performed through a single incision, and in open-chest procedures. In the December 2007 edition of The Annals of Thoracic Surgery, the results of an independent investigator clinical trial led by Mark Groh, MD, showed that AF is effectively treated using the Epicor Cardiac Ablation System when used concomitantly to corrective heart surgery. The investigators reported that more than 83 percent of all patients, followed for at least six months after surgery, were free from AF. In addition, 86 percent of the patients followed for at least 18 months remained free from AF. The investigators reported that there were no device or ablative procedure-related adverse events and specifically noted an absence of esophageal, coronary or phrenic nerve damage. The 2007 results confirmed the findings of an earlier European multi-center trial published in the September 2005 Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery. The investigators in the European clinical trial reported an 85 percent freedom-from-AF rate at six months post-procedure - the study's primary efficacy end point - in patients concomitantly treated for AF with the Epicor Cardiac Ablation System.

  • CIGNA Falmouth Road Race Essay Winner The CIGNA Falmouth Road Race Challenge essay contest sought to celebrate people who have overcome a life-altering disability or illness, and ask how they have inspired others. This year, Lois Green of East Greenbush, New York, won the all-expense paid trip to run the CIGNA Falmouth Road Race on Sunday, August 15, 2010 in Falmouth, Mass. as a member of Team CIGNA. In her essay, she described her life-changing discovery: lung cancer. She never smoked and no one in her family ever had cancer until that year. Thoracotomy surgery removed half of her left lung, but not her spirit. The doctors told her most patients recover from the surgery in 12 weeks. Lois ran a come-back 5K race after only seven weeks recovering. Soon after, Lois signed on with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's TEAM In Training and planned to run a marathon nine months after surgery with a fundraising commitment of $4000 -- an aggressive goal. She mailed a letter to everyone she knew sharing her story and why she was running. By the time Lois left for the race, she reached $20000 in donations and a pile of the most heart-felt letters she had ever read from friends, family members and even people she never met. Since then, Lois became a mentor for new TEAM in Training team members, ran another marathon, became a TEAM in Training campaign events spokesperson and served on an organizing campaign committee. Lois is running the CIGNA Falmouth Road Race for the first time with the help of CIGNA's Falmouth Road Race ...
