Clinical features of patients with second primary lung cancer following head and neck cancer.

Ann Thorac Surg 2022 May 17. Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Okayama University Hospital, Okayama; Okayama University Thoracic Surgery Study Group (OUTSSG).

Background: Survivors of head and neck cancer (HNC) often develop second primary lung cancer (SPLC), due to a common risk factor, that is, smoking. Our multicenter experience has been reviewed to evaluate how the history of diagnosis of HNC affects the outcomes of patients undergoing pulmonary resection for SPLC.

Methods: A multicenter retrospective analysis of patients hospitalized between January 2012 and December 2018 has been performed. Read More

Surgical Triage and Timing for Patients with COVID: A Guidance Statement from the Society of Thoracic Surgeons.

Ann Thorac Surg 2022 May 17. Epub 2022 May 17.

Department of Surgery, Section of Cardiac Surgery, Max Rady College of Medicine, University of Manitoba, Winnipeg, Canada.

The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic continues to disrupt the provision of cardiac procedural services due to overwhelming interval surges in COVID-19 cases and the associated crisis of cardiac intervention deferment. Despite the availability of widespread testing, highly efficacious vaccines, and intensive public health efforts, the pandemic is entering its third year where new SARS-CoV-2 variants have increased the likelihood that patients scheduled for cardiac intervention will contract COVID-19 in the perioperative period. The Society of Thoracic Surgeons (STS) Workforce on Critical Care, the Workforce on Adult Cardiac and Vascular Surgery and the Canadian Society of Cardiac Surgeons have developed this document, endorsed by the STS and affirmed by the Society of Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions and the Canadian Association of Interventional Cardiology, to provide guidance for cardiac procedure deferment and intervention timing for preoperative patients diagnosed with COVID-19.

Methods: Data from patients undergoing surgery for congenital heart disease from 01/2011-12/2019 at a single institution were retrospectively reviewed. Intraoperative echocardiograms were used to assign IO-TPS for each index operation (Class 1, no residua; Class 2, minor residua; Class 3, major residua). Read More
