A partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) is a rare congenital defect in which at least one pulmonary vein doesn't drain into the left atrium but into a systemic vein or even into the right atrium, causing a left-to right shunt. PAPVC with a small amount of shunt are usually asymptomatic, and can not be detected during lifetime. Nevertheless, if those patients undergo a major lung resection, the surgical procedure could precipitate right heart failure if this anomalous shunt remains uncorrected...

Central venous access devices are routinely used in patients with cancer. Although rare, catheter transaction with subsequent embolization is one of the major complications of intra-vascular devices. We describe two patients with embolized chemoport catheters within the heart that were successfully removed percutaneously using a goose-neck snare technique. We also describe a third patient with a fractured intra-vascular catheter in the pericardium removed by pericardiotomy, which can be the first case of the kind...

Ran Mo, Yiguang Yan, Dongjin Wang
The best surgical approach for coarctation of the aorta (COA) combined with other cardiac diseases is uncertain. The simultaneous intracardiac repair of complex pathologies is desirable because multistage procedures may lead to a higher rate of mortality. We describe a case involving a 61-year-old woman who was suffering from COA with a concomitant arch aneurysm and coronary artery disease. We managed her case via single-stage surgery that included a median sternotomy.

We report a first case of a patient experiencing reactivation of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) during treatment of oral tyrosine kinase inhibitor (TKI) with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). A 44-year-old male patient visited the hospital with cough. He had been treated with erlotinib (oral TKI) for 8 months after being diagnosed as NSCLC with sensitive epidermal growth factor receptor mutation in our clinic. At initial chest imaging, the patient had fibroatelectatic calcified granuloma in the right upper lobe (RUL) apex as well as 1...

Malignant fibrous histiocytoma (MFH) is an aggressive soft tissue sarcoma known to occur in various organs. Primary MFH arising in the lung is quite rare. Herein we report a case of a 61-year-old male with primary pulmonary MFH and explore the underlying molecular mechanisms by next-generation sequencing (NGS). Five gene mutations in TSC2, ARID1B, CDK8, KDM5C and CASP8 were detected, and the mTOR inhibitor might be an effective treatment for this patient. In addition, we reviewed the scientific literature of approximately 23 primary pulmonary MFH case reports since 1990 and summarized the clinical features and prognosis of this rare pulmonary malignant tumor...

Oesophageal hamartomas are extremely rare conditions especially in upper oesophagus. We report on a 20-year-old woman who presented with dysphagia and was diagnosed with a retrosternal 4.9 cm × 9.0 cm heterogenic tumour located in her upper oesophagus. Preoperative examinations included computed tomography of the chest, bronchoscopy and esophagoscopy, and no signs of malignancy were noted. She underwent surgical resection of the mass and the final histopathological diagnosis was osteochondromatous hamartoma of the upper oesophagus...

Thymic carcinoma is a rare, aggressive disease with a low 5-year survival rate. The most common histological neoplastic thymic tumor subtype is squamous cell. We describe an interesting case of a 39-year-old woman who presented with mucinous adenocarcinoma that originated in the thymus and was treated via radical resection and venoplasty of the superior vena cava (SVC). Macroscopically, the resected tumor contained a solid region and multiple cysts with abundant mucin. Microscopic examination showed a papillary growth pattern of goblet cells with round nuclei...

Liposarcomas are the most common type of mesenchymal neoplasm in soft tissue sarcomas. Although they frequently develop at the lower limbs or retroperitoneum, cases arising from the mediastinum are rare. Furthermore, the incidence of the inflammatory subtype of well-differentiated liposarcoma is known to be low. We experienced a case of a middle mediastinal liposarcoma in a 68-year-old woman. The tumor, which was completely resected, was 92 mm in diameter. The tumor consisted of two different imaging components that showed different growth and which were diagnosed as the lipoma-like subtype and inflammatory subtype of well-differentiated liposarcoma...

The number of patients who need cardiac support with a left ventricular assist device (LVAD) has increased over the last decade. However, the number of reports of organ retrieval from donors with an LVAD is still small. Successful lung retrieval for single lung transplantation was performed from a donor on LVAD support. This required special care not to injure the heart, great vessels, and the device, particularly the outflow conduit, because of significant conglutination around the device. A right single lung transplantation was performed successfully, with no postoperative complications...

Hiatal hernias are due to defects in the esophageal hiatus in the diaphragm and can be classified into sliding or paraesophageal hernias. A 31-year-old male raised a suspicion of a Bochdalek hernia but at surgery had a large paraesophageal hernia. Bochdalek hernia, a congenital diaphragmatic hernia presents in adulthood asymptomatically or with vague abdominal symptoms. It is paramount to confirm the diagnosis and rule out any fatal complications with imaging studies. Prompt surgical management with large complicated hernias, such as in our case presentation would ensure the most favorable outcome...
