Nail Gun Impacted in the Chest Wall: Report of a Failed Trail of Home Extraction by Patient’s Relatives
Nail gun is a rare but important cause of penetrating chest trauma. Cardiac nail gun injury is a life threatening injury. If the patient is unstable, immediate intervention (thoracotomy or sternotomy) helps reduce the rate of mortality. In stable patients, a high index of clinical suspicion and use of the best and fastest imaging modalities are helpful for successful management. ... Read more

Cardiac Myxomas: A single center experience and ten-years follow up
BACKGROUND: Cardiac myxoma is a benign tumor that carries the risk of embolization and obstruction of the blood flow. The ideal surgical approach is still debatable. We present our experience in the surgical treatment of cardiac myxomas and its ideal surgical approach. METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed the data for all patients who underwent surgical excision of cardiac myxoma at our ... Read more

Early Morbidity and Mortality after Mitral Valve Replacement with Mechanical Valve  Ayman M. Abdel Ghaffar1* and Mohammad A. Ezzat2
BACKGROUND:Mitral valve replacement surgery has substantially progressed along the last few decades. Only few reports from Upper Egypt cardiac surgery centers are currently available. AIM:The aim of this study was to evaluate early morbidity and mortality in patients who had mitral valve replacement with mechanical valve prosthesis in Sohag University Hospital. METHODS: Two hundred and forty eight consecutive adult patients ... Read more

Comparative study between epidural morphine versus epidural morphine-haloperidol combination for post thoracotomy pain relief Ayman M. Abdel Ghaffar (1) and Wesam Abdel Galil (2)
_BACKGROUND: _The addition of haloperidol to epidural morphine has been assumed to provide good analgesia following severely painful operations including thoracotomy with subsequent decrease in the analgesic consumption. Reduction in the incidence and severity of pruritis, postoperative nausea and vomiting (PONV) could be achieved without cardiac, respiratory or central nervous system side effects. _OBJECTIVE_: This study was to evaluate the ...

Small-Bore Catheter for Draining Most Types of Pleural Effusions: Upper Egypt Experience
_Abstract _ _Background and aim of the study_ : Tube thoracostomy remains the standard of care for the treatment of pneumothorax and simple effusions in most hospitals (2, 8). Placement of a large-bore chest tube is an invasive procedure with potential morbidity and complications and therefore the use of small-bore catheter may be desirable (3). The objective of this study ... Read more

Regain Interest in Semi-continuous Sutures in Prosthetic Valve Replacement
_Abstract _ _Background and aim of the study_: The continuous suture technique has numerous advantages as a simple, quick, and effective method for valve replacement (5). The semi-continuous suture technique is a modification of the continuous technique aiming to avoid its technical disadvantages. This method combines advantages of the continuous and interrupted suture techniques (6). In this study we evaluated ... Read more

Value of Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Mediastinal and Pleuro- Pulmonary Diseases
_Objective: _Thoracoscopy offers great advantages when compared with open surgery in terms of postoperative pain and pulmonary complications. Thoracoscopy is safe and feasible with minimal morbidity. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the indications, surgical procedures, complications, and failure rates of VATS in the diagnosis and treatment of intrathoracic diseases. _Materials and Methods: _One hundred seventy consecutive patients, ...

Anesthesia for Mitral Valve Replacement Surgery:  Impact of Thoracic Epidural Analgesia on Extubation Time and Pain Scores
ABSTRACT BACKGROUND: Thoracic epidural analgesia (TEA) after thoracic surgery provides the most effective analgesia, influences the neurohumoural stress response and cardiovascular pathophysiology. AIM: To evaluate the impact of TEA, via a catheter placed pre-operatively, on extubation time and pain scores in patients undergoing mitral valve replacement surgery. METHODS: In this prospective, randomized study, eighty four patients scheduled for elective mitral ... Read more
