Abstract Objective (s) : During endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) staging, ultrasonographic features can be used to predict mediastinal lymph node (LN) malignancy. We sought to develop the Canada Lymph Node Score (CLNS) a tool capable of predicting LN metastasis at the time of EBUS. Methods Patients undergoing EBUS staging for lung and esophageal cancer were prospectively enrolled. Features were identified in real-time by an endoscopist and video-recorded. Videos were sent to raters. Pathological ...

Abstract Background To meet the need for competency assessment in thoracic surgery education, we developed and tested an instrument to assess trainees’ ability to perform anatomic lung resection for cancer. Methods The Thoracic Competency Assessment Tool-Anatomic Resection for lung Cancer (TCAT-ARC) was developed through a multi-step process involving logical analysis, expert review, and simulation-based and clinical pilot testing. Validity evidence was gathered during a six-month clinical study...

Background To develop and evaluate a surgical trainee competency assessment instrument for invasive mediastinal staging, including cervical mediastinoscopy and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), a comprehensive instrument was developed, the Thoracic Competency Assessment Tool-Invasive Staging (TCAT-IS), using expert review and simulated and clinical pilot-testing. Methods Validity and reliability evidence were collected, and item analysis was performed. Initially, a 27-item instrument was develope...

Background Intraoperative evaluation with fluorescence angiography using indocyanine green (ICG) offers a dynamic assessment of gastric conduit perfusion and can guide anastomotic site selection during an esophagectomy. This study aims to evaluate the predictive value of ICG for the prevention of anastomotic leak following esophagectomy.
