Stapled video-assisted thoracoscopic segmentectomy preserves as much lung volume as nonstapled video-assisted thoracoscopic segmentectomy.

Asian J Surg 2020 Jun 9. Epub 2020 Jun 9.

Division of Thoracic Surgery, Department of Surgery, National Cheng Kung University Hospital, College of Medical College, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan; Division of Trauma and Acute Care Surgery, Department of Surgery, National Cheng Kung University Hospital, College of Medical College, National Cheng Kung University, Tainan, Taiwan. Electronic address:

Background: Two different techniques of performing segmentectomy have been reported in the era of video-assisted thoracosopic surgery (VATS), including stapled segmentectomy (SS) and non-stapled segmentectomy (NSS). Some surgeons favor stapled segmentectomy for better pneumostatic control, while others prefer non-stapled segmentectomy to avoid compromising adjacent pulmonary parenchyma. In this study, we used multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and spirometry to evaluate lung volume preservation of different segmentectomy techniques. Read More

Objective: This study aimed to demonstrate the usefulness of an attachable magnetic nerve stimulator for preservation of the external branch of the superior laryngeal nerve (EBSLN) during thyroidectomy.

Methods: We retrospectively analyzed 120 female patients, of which 60 underwent thyroidectomy with an attachable magnetic nerve stimulator (magnetic group) and the remaining 60 underwent thyroidectomy with a conventional method without EBSLN identification (control group). For both groups, objective and subjective voice parameters were investigated on the day before surgery and at 2 weeks and 2 months after surgery. Read More

Long-term functional outcomes upon application of split-thickness skin graft around major joints in HCC (Hung-Chi Chen)-modified Charles' procedure for advanced lymphedema.

Asian J Surg 2020 Jun 5. Epub 2020 Jun 5.

Department of Plastic Surgery, China Medical University Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan.

Objective: In the conventional Charles' procedure for lower-limb lymphedema, full-thickness skin grafts (FTSGs) or flaps are the preferred treatment for areas around the knee and ankle because of the belief that FTSGs or flaps result in slighter contracture relative to split-thickness skin grafts (STSGs). However, the use of FTSGs or flaps prolongs operation and increases the risk of partial graft loss; should partial graft loss occur, additional grafting is required for remnant defects to avoid significant scarring after secondary healing. The senior author (HCC) thus modified the Charles' procedure and used STSGs around the knee and ankle. Read More
