This is a description of transhiatal laparoscopic approach for mid-esophageal diverticulum. Traditionally mid-esophageal diverticula are approached by thoracotomy or thoracoscopy, with the laparoscopic technique being reserved for epiphrenic diverticula. A 78-year-old Caucasian female with a secondary dilatative ischemic cardiomyopathy presented with dysphagia, tenderness in the epigastrium and a considerable weight loss. A large mid-esophageal diverticulum was found on barium swallow and confirmed by CT scan...

Patients with multiple injuries in particular frequently also suffer from chest trauma. During the initial phase the identification and treatment of life-threatening injuries is essential and tension pneumothorax is of particular importance during this phase. The Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) algorithm should be followed for structured treatment. In most cases treatment by insertion of a chest tube is sufficient but for some injuries an emergency thoracotomy is unavoidable as a life-saving intervention...

The patient was a 57-year-old woman. Preclinical examination of malignant lymphoma revealed 0-I sp type of early rectal cancer in the upper rectum, 20 cm from the anal margin. Endoscopic mucosal resection was performed and positive deep margins were pathologically diagnosed. Additional intestinal resection with lymph node dissection was deemed necessary, but ABVD therapy was initiated because the clinical stage of the malignant lymphoma was Stage III b or higher. Two months after detecting elevated CEA, S8 liver metastasis was pointed out, and examination of weakness of the right upper limb revealed nodular, multifocal brain metastasis...

BACKGROUND: SMARCB1 (INI1) is a tumor-suppressor gene located at 22q11.2. Loss of SMARCB1 protein expression has been reported to be associated with atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumors and malignant rhabdoid tumors of the kidney and extrarenal tissues. To date, however, SMARCB1-deficient carcinoma of the pleura has not been reported. We report the first case of SMARCB1- deficient squamous cell carcinoma of the pleura. CASE PRESENTATION: The case was a 33-year-old female...

BACKGROUND: Malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) is marked by its difficult diagnosis and poor prognosis. Medical thoracoscopy (MT) is an effective and safe procedure for the diagnosis of exudative pleural effusions and many factors associated with poor prognosis of MPM. We conducted this study to investigate the value of MT for diagnosing of MPM and to identify prognostic factors for MPM patients. METHODS: From July 2005 through June 2014, a total of 833 patients with undiagnosed pleural effusions underwent MT and pleural biopsies were taken...

Thoracoscopic surgery is becoming more widely used in thoracic surgery and has an increasingly important role to play. However, its use for locally advanced carcinoma (clinical stage T3-4) remains controversial. We adapted our procedure by combining thoracoscopy and open chest surgery (combination surgery) with the aim of reducing invasiveness while ensuring that the operation is safe and curative. Here we describe our experience. Case 1 was a man in his 60s who underwent induction chemoradiotherapy (cisplatin plus vinorelbine plus 40 Gy radiotherapy) followed by radical surgery for a left apical lung carcinoma with chest wall invasion...

We describe a patient with low respiratory function who underwent thoracoscopic sleeve segmentectomy to preserve lung function as much as possible. The patient had already used home oxygen therapy because of chronic obstructive lung disease. There was a squamous-cell carcinoma at inlet of right B6 bronchus, and cT1aN0M0 disease was diagnosed. Because respiratory function was poor, right S6 segmentectomy was scheduled. Moreover, to preserve the respiratory muscles as much as possible, a thoracoscopic approach was selected...

Background: Spontaneous esophageal rupture (Boerhaave's syndrome) is an emergency that can cause life-threatening conditions. Various procedures have been used to treat Boerhaave's syndrome. However, a standard surgical procedure has not been established. Herein, we report our experience with primary suture of the ruptured esophagus via a thoracoscopy or laparotomy. Methods: Between November 2002 and May 2015, 11 patients with Boerhaave's syndrome presented to our department and were managed using one of two surgical procedures based on the surgeon's discretion...

BACKGROUND: The minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum (MIRPE) has been widely accepted and has become a viable alternative to the open Ravitch technique. MIRPE has evolved over time with some advocating that a safe repair can be accomplished without direct visualization utilizing thoracoscopy. The MIRPE with and without a thoracoscopic approach has not been previously analyzed from a nationwide database to determine differences in safety and short-term outcomes. METHODS: The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program-Pediatric (NSQIP-P) 2012-2015 database was used in identifying patients that had MIRPE using Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) codes and ICD-9CM/ICD-10CM postoperative diagnosis codes...

Bean's syndrome ('blue rubber bleb nevus syndrome') is a rare disease characterized by venous malformations involving various organs. Most often these lesions are localized to the skin and the digestive system. Gastro-intestinal bleeding is the most frequent presentation. Though other organs can be affected, chest localizations are infrequent and pleural localization is exceptional. We report the case of an asbestos-exposed patient with Bean's syndrome with characteristic skin lesions, smoker, hospitalized for the investigation of a hemorrhagic pleural effusion...

Traditionally, surgeons can only count on their naked eyes to identify the fissure in patients with incomplete fissures, which often cause surgical approach into the fissural parenchyma and may lead to postoperative prolonged air leak (PAL). We describe a novel technique using near-infrared (NIR) thoracoscopy with indocyanine green (ICG) to identify the fissure accurately and real-timely for the first time in a patient with totally fused oblique fissure (Craig grade 4).

BACKGROUND: Anastomotic leaks after oesophagectomy with tabularised stomach replacement are a significant factor in post-operative mortality and morbidity. Early detection and treatment of this complication allow for improving operative and oncological results. When assessing laboratory values - elevation of inflammatory parameters - complicated interpretation is an issue (systemic inflammatory response syndrome, surgical versus non-surgical complication). Results studying the relationship between C-reactive protein (CRP) and complications following oesophagectomies are inconsistent...

A 5-year-old girl was referred to our unit with an incidental finding of a lesion on the right hemithorax situated within the right atrial shadow. Computed tomography thorax showed a well-defined soft tissue lesion felt to be consistent with a bronchogenic cyst. The lesion was located in the posterior mediastinum, adherent to the diaphragm and inferior vena cava, but did not extend within the wall of the esophagus. It was entirely excised via video-assisted thoracoscopy converted to open thoracotomy. Histopathology confirmed an encapsulated nodular tissue measuring 2...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review article describes current diagnostic and treatment modalities for malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM). RECENT FINDINGS: Few randomized trials in MPM have demonstrated improved survival with current therapies. A randomized trial of first-line chemotherapy with and without bevacizumab in unresectable MPM is the only randomized trial of a new treatment regimen to demonstrate a survival benefit since cisplatin with pemetrexed became the standard of care for unresectable MPM in 2003...

Congenital diaphragmatic hernia (CDH) is a rare congenital disease requiring neonatal surgical treatment. The traditional surgical management of CDH consists of diaphragmatic repair by laparotomy. Thoracoscopic repair techniques have been well described for CDH with late presentation. Nevertheless, its feasibility for CDH treatment in neonates emerged only the past few years because the use of thoracoscopy with carbon dioxide insufflation remains controversial in these patients more vulnerable to hypothermia and acidosis...
