Adult: Graphical Abstract

Adult: In an observational study of 11,820 (STS indexed) coronary or valvular surgeries from 2010 to 2018, 4605 (39.0%) had PAC insertion. Propensity score matching was performed using preoperative variables and yielded 3519 evenly balanced pairs. PAC use was not associated with improved operative mortality in the overall cohort. However, ICU LOS was longer in the PAC group (P < .001), and there were more postoperative packed red blood cell transfusions in the PAC group (P < .001). Brown

Thoracic: Graphical Abstract

Thoracic: A total of 1696 patients with lung cancer were reviewed, of whom 53 with AIS and 72 with MIA were included. The RFSs of AIS and MIA were all 100%, and the 10-year OSs of AIS and MIA were 98.1% and 97.2%, respectively. The risks of developing SPLC for patients with AIS and MIA 10 years after resection were 8.4% and 4.3%, respectively, and were not correlated with EGFR mutation status. Li
