A primary desmoid tumor arising from the chest wall is extremely rare. We report the case of a 57-year-old man presenting with a desmoid tumor arising from his chest wall. Chest radiograph at a regular medical checkup indicated an abnormal shadow. By computed tomography-guided biopsy, he was diagnosed as having a desmoid tumor. He underwent right-sided chest wall resection and reconstruction. Desmoid tumor is histopathologically benign tumor, however, they tend to show high rates of local recurrence after surgery...

A 31-year-old man was referred to our hospital for chest abnormal shadow on a routine health checkup. Two nodular lesions were found at the 2nd intercostal space by computed tomography. Chest wall ultrasonography showed 2 masses suspecting tumors. Tumors were resected through 3-cm skin incision with the assistance of thoracoscope. Pathological diagnosis was both schwannomas. Ultrasonography was useful in resecting chest wall tumor.

Congenital coronary-pulmonary artery fistulas complicated by continuity to a systemic artery and aneurysm are extremely rare. A 78-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with a complaint of chest discomfort. Coronary angiography showed a coronary aneurysm and coronary-pulmonary artery fistula arising from the left circumflex artery and entering into the right lower pulmonary artery. Computed tomography angiography revealed a left subclavian artery-pulmonary artery fistula communicating with the coronary-pulmonary artery fistula...

Fixation of the chin to the anterior chest wall is the most commonly used method of reducing anastomotic tension following a segmental resection of the trachea and reconstruction with primary anastomosis. However, the sutures required for this method may lead to various organic and psychological problems. In five patients who underwent tracheal resection and primary anastomosis, retention sutures were placed on the proximal and distal-lateral edges of the anastomotic line rather than placing a Guardian chin stitch...

Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) procedures for thymic tumors and myasthenia gravis were introduced in Asia in the middle 1990s in at least two regions, Hong Kong and Japan. To overcome difficulties in obtaining a wide view of the anterior mediastinum, several methods for lifting the sternum or anterior chest wall have been presented, mainly by Japanese surgeons. More recently, single port VATS through a subxiphoid incision was also introduced in Japan. The long-term outcome of a VATS extended thymectomy for myasthenia gravis has been shown to be comparable to that of a trans-sternal extended thymectomy, while the long-term outcome of a VATS thymectomy for thymic epithelial tumors remains to be elucidated...

Extensive chest wall resection and reconstruction are a challenging procedure that requires a multidisciplinary approach, including input from thoracic surgeon, plastic surgeon and oncologist. In particular chest wall neoplastic pathology is associated with high surgical morbidity and can result in full thickness defects hard to reconstruct. The goals of a successful chest wall reconstruction are to restore the chest wall rigidity, preserve pulmonary mechanic and protect the intrathoracic organs minimizing the thoracic deformity...

In the latest two decades, the video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) technique has gained recognition as an effective alternative to conventional open surgery, and the field of its application has gradually extended to more complex diseases, such as locally invasive non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) requiring combined lung and chest wall resection. The en bloc chest wall resection can be accomplished by using a typical VATS port placement, each time adjusted to allow a better thoracoscopic guidance and a correct resection of the tumour to achieve negative margins...

Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) surgery has seen an evolution from multiple ports to uniportal and finally subxiphoid uniportal recently. In traditional VATS surgery, the instruments and the thoracoscope enter the thoracic cavity through two to four operating ports on the lateral chest wall, which can cause chronic pain and chest wall numbness. However single-portal VATS surgery could potentially cause similar problems as the port is placed in between the ribs. In March 2015 Liu et al. reported a VATS bilateral pulmonary metastasectomy and right middle lobectomy via a subxiphoid uniportal technique...

BACKGROUND: The National Comprehensive Cancer Network recommends adjuvant chemotherapy (AC) for patients with completely resected (R0) pT3N0M0 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) with chest wall invasion. There is minimal evidence to support this recommendation. We aimed to determine whether there is a survival benefit with AC and if so whether it depends on tumor size. METHODS: Patients who had undergone R0 resection for pT3N0M0 NSCLC with chest wall invasion were identified in the National Cancer Data Base from 2008 to 2012...

OBJECTIVE: The authors present a multicenter retrospective series of different benign rib lesions in children operated on using thoracoscopy. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between 2005 and 2015, 17 rib resections were performed thoracoscopically, in four French departments of pediatric surgery. Of these 17 cases, 13 exostoses, 2 endochondromas, 1 synostosis, and 1 Cyriax's syndrome were noted. Inclusion criteria were benign tumors or rib anomalies such as synostosis, in children younger than the age of 18 years, and thoracoscopy...

Fibromatosis is a rare, benign, slow-growing and locally infiltrative tumour, caused by uncontrolled proliferation of fibrous tissue arising from muscles, connective tissue, fasciae and aponeurosis. It is also called desmoid tumour, which is very rare pathology representing only 0.03% of all neoplasms in human and around 3% of all soft tissue tumours. It is locally aggressive and usually invades the surrounding structures and has a high recurrence rate, even after surgical complete resection, which should be the first line of treatment...

Polypoid tumours of the esophagus present diagnostic and therapeutic problems. Liposarcomas are infrequent among them. We report a recent case. A 73-year-old male patient was seen in May 1995 in the Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Department, Clinica Modelo de Morón, with intermittent dysphagia and dyspnoea due to recurrent vomiting. A laryngeal lineal tomography showed a subglottic obstruction due to extrinsic compression. The patient was referred to the Gastroenterology Department, where an upper gastrointestinal (upper GI) series demonstrated mega-esophagus with abundant retained food...

We conducted a retrospective investigation in patients who underwent surgery for T3 lung cancer with invasion of chest wall and other adjacent organs. Fifty patients who underwent surgery for T3 lung cancer with invasion of adjacent organs were investigated. The chest wall was the most frequently invaded organ, followed by the pericardium and mediastinal pleura. In cases of chest wall invasion, patients underwent en bloc resection and, when a complete resection was judged feasible, extrapleural resection. Six patients with superior sulcus tumor underwent surgery after preoperative treatment...

Lung cancer invading neighboring anatomical structures is categorized as T3 or T4 and is regarded as locally advanced lung cancer. The 8th Edition Lung Cancer Stage Classification reclassified tumors 5~7 cm in size as T3 and tumors >7 cm or invading the diaphragm as T4. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the treatment results for resectable cT3-4N0-1M0 non-small cell lung cancer. From 1985 to 2016, 138 patients were surgically treated in our hospital, and their median follow-up was 78 months. Overall, the 5-year survival was 50%...
