:Pneumonectomy has been known with higher rate of morbidity and mortality. Thereby, we evaluated patients who received pneumonectomy for lung cancer and infectious lung disease related to postoperative morbidity and mortality. Materials and methods:The retrospective study was undertaken in 55 patients who had undergone pneumonectomy at Yeungnam University Hospital from January 1996 to December 2004. We devided into two groups, lung cancer group (group A, n=40) and infectious lung disease group (group B, n=15) and then compared and analyzed.
:The mean age was higher in group A and there was statistical significance (60.8 9.4 vs 45.7 12.1, p<0.001). With preoperative pulmonary function test, FEV1, FVC were higher in group A and there were statistical significane (p<0.001, p=0.006). With preoperative lung perfusion scan, the perfusion ratio of affected lung and postoperative predicted FEV1 were higher in group A and there were statistical significance (p<0.001, p=0.007). According to MRC dyspnea scale, change of respiratory difficulty of group A had statistical significance (p<0.001). There were a total 20 postoperative complications (36.4%) of which arrhythmia 7, postoperative bleeding 5, empyema and/or bronchopleural fistula 3, pneumonia 2, adult respiratory distress syndrome 1, vocal cord palsy 1. The postoperative complication rate was no difference between two groups (37.5% vs 33.3%) but arrhythmia developed in group A only. There were 3 postoperative mortalities, all in group A.
:Preoperative pulmonary function test and postoperative predicted FEV1 were lower in group B, however, postoperative complication rate was no difference between two groups and mortality developed in group A only. Because of lesser resected lung volume and well adopted in long term diseased period, there was lesser hemodynamic change in infectious lung disease. So postoperative mortality not developed in infectious lung disease group due to arrhythmia and respiratory failure.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Simple ventricular septal defect(VSD) is the most common congenital heart disease. Although closure of VSD is currently associated with a relatively low risk, experience with younger and smaller infants has been variably less satisfactory. We assessed the results of surgical closure of VSD in infant. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 1996 and 2000, 45 non-restrictive VSD patients underwent patch repair and retrospective analysis was done. Patients were divided into two groups based on weight: group I infants weighed 5kg or less(n=16), and group II infants weighed more than 5kg(n=29). Both groups had similar variation in sex, VSD location, aortic cross clamp time and total bypass time. But combined diseases (ASD, PDA, MR) were more in group I. We closed VSD with patch and used simple continuous suture method in all patients. RESULTS: There were no operative mortality, no reoperation for hemodynamically significant residual shunt and no surgically induced complete heart block. As a complication, pneumonia(group I: 2 cases, group II: 2 cases), transient seizure(group II: 2), wound infection(group I: 1, group II: 1), urinary tract infection(group I: 1) and chylopericardium(group I: 1) developed, and there was no significant difference between two groups(p>0.05). CONCLUSION: Early primary closure with simple continuous suture method was applicable in all patients with non-restrictive VSD without any serious complications.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Paraganglioma is a tumor from the extra adrenal paraganglion system and is rarely observed in the mediastinum. The authors experienced a case of nonfunctioning paraganglioma of the posterior mediastinum. The patient was 34-years-old male in whom abnormal mass lesion was nites in chest radiograph with hemoptysis. His blood pressure and serologic examination were within normal range upon admission to our hospital. Chest CT revealed a tumor in the left lower lobe. Diagnostic thoracoscopy was performed and diagnosed a posterior mediastinal mass. Surgical resection was them performed. Posterior mediastinal mass was removed successfully and histological examination of the surgical specimen diagnosed paraganglioma. He received radiotherapy after surgery and was followed up. Related literature are reviewed.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Bronchial carcinoid tumor was a low grade malignant and it was regarded as predictable clinical course and good survivality after surgical resection. But despite of its low grade malignant potentiality, bronchial carcinoid tumor was clearly capable of metastasizing and causing death. We present 2 cases of bronchial carcinoid tumors. One of them was typical carcinoid tumor in 44 year-old female and another was atypical carcinoid tumor in 53 year-old male patient. Currative therapeutic procedure was performed by lobectomy and wedge resection.

AbstractAbstract PDF
We have experienced a case of aortic dissecting aneurysm in pregnant woman. She felt initially severe chest pain which was radiated to the neck on the 3days before delivery. Thereafter dyspnea and generalized edema were developed for 1 month after delivery. She was diagnosed as aortic dissectLn, Debakey type-II. During cardiopulmonary bypass, the selective cerebral perfusion was done through the right and left commom carotid arteries. Aortic replacement with Hemashield vascular graft and reimplantation of innominate artery, resuspension of aortic valve, repair of intimal tear were performed. The postoperative course was uneventful.

AbstractAbstract PDF
The study consisted of all patients over 35yerars old undergoing surgical repair of atrial septal defect for the period from June 1985, to August 1992. The following results were observed. 1. ASD was closed with patch in 11 (73%) patients. 2. The relationship of pulmonary artery systolic pressure to Qp/Qs ratio was not significant. 3. Before operation 6 patients were in NYHA functional class II. 8 were in class III, After operation 8 patients were in class I, 6 were in class II. 4. Atrial fibrillation has persisted in 3 patients and returned regular rhythm in 1 patient after surgery. 5. There was no operative mortality and we had good surgical results regardless of patient's age.

AbstractAbstract PDF
The authors conducted a clinical observation of 55 cases of solitary pulmonary nodules at Yeungnam University Hospital from June 1986 to October 1990, and the following results were obtained: 1. The age distribution was ranged from 18 to 77 years, and the male-to female ratio was 1.8:1. 2. Among 55 cases of nodules, 28 cases were benign and 27 cases were malignant nodules, and of malignant nodules, the primary lung cancer was 23 cases and of benign nodules, 18 cases were tuberculoma. 3. 23 cases (41.8%) was asymptomatic and the other 32 cases were symptomatic; chest pain 12 cases, hemoptysis; 8 cases, cough; 8 cases and dyspnea; 4 cases. 4. The non-smoker-to-smoker ratio was 1:1.04, but among 23 smoker over 20 pack years, 14 cases were malignant nodules. 5. According to nodular size, there is no striking differences between benign and malignant nodules except 3-4 cm sized nodules. 6. The lobar distribution of nodules, 35 cases were in the right lung (upper lobe; 14 cases, middle lobe; 11 cases, and lower lobe; 10 cases) and 23 cases were in the left lung (upper lobe; 9 cases, lower lobe; 11 cases), and the malignant nodules were most commonly observed in the right upper lung.
