Multiple arterial grafts in coronary artery bypass grafting, Sohag University Hospital's initial experience
BACKGROUND Left internal mammary artery (LIMA) grafting to the left anterior descending artery (LAD) is the most crucial step in any surgical coronary revascularization. It has been proved that using LIMA during coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) resulted in better long term results in comparison to other conduits. With accumulation of data about failure and lower patency rates of vein ... Read more

Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Pericardial Window for Massive Pericardial Effusion: South Egypt Experience
_BACKGROUND_:_BACKGROUND_: Symptomatic pericardial effusion (PE) is a common cardiothoracic presentation. It may reflect a wide variety of causes, ranging from infection to malignancy. The optimal management of pericardial effusion is still controversial. The two main interventional procedures agreed in the last decade as the two reasonable options for PE treatment are: surgical (transthoracic or subxiphoid) and video-assisted thoracoscopy (VATS) pericardial ...

Mitral Valve Repair versus Replacement for Rheumatic Mitral Regurgitation: Short Term Results
BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY:Mitral Valve( MV) repair and replacement are two independent therapeutic techniques for treating MR. The surgical community has become more aware of the known merits of MV repair compared to replacement. Despite these merits, the results of such outcomes among studies that simultaneously compared the two treatment modalities have not been totally consistent (6). This ... Read more

Role of Thoracoscopy in the Diagnosis and Treatment of Intrathoracic Lesions: Sohag Experience
BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY: Since thoracoscopy was originally described in 1910, the application has been limited mainly to the diagnosis and treatment of pleural disease (1). Advances in endoscopic surgical equipment and re-finement of surgical techniques have expanded the role of thoracoscopy to include multiple procedures that previously could only be performed by open approaches (2). The objective ... Read more

INTRODUCTION:Road traffic accidents and the increasing violence are common causes of increasing chest injuries. Penetrating thoracic trauma (PTT) is a challenging problem,but fortunately most of these injuries can be managed non-operatively. AIM:To determine the pattern of penetrating thoracic injury, including the causes, the role of surgery and intervention outcomes at South Egypt. PATIENTS AND METHODS:This prospective study was conducted at ... Read more
