BACKGROUND: Recent wide spread use of low-dose helical computed tomography for the screening of lung cancer have led to an increase in the detection rate of very faint and smaller lesions known as ground-glass opacity nodules. The purpose of this study was to investigate the clinical factors of lung cancer patients with solitary ground-glass opacity pulmonary nodules on computed tomography. METHODS: A total of 423 resected solitary ground-glass opacity nodules were retrospectively evaluated...

Background: Virtual fluoroscopy (VF) is a novel guided technique that provides ray summation images of target lesions similar to X-ray fluoroscopy. Endobronchial ultrasound with a guide sheath (EBUS-GS) is a useful modality for imaging ground-glass nodules (GGNs) but is not ideal for GGNs that cannot be detected on X-ray fluoroscopy. We evaluated whether the addition of VF to EBUS-GS improved the diagnostic yield. Methods: Consecutive patients who had undergone diagnostic bronchoscopy for GGNs that were not detected on X-ray fluoroscopy between September 2012 and January 2016 were retrospectively enrolled...

INTRODUCTION: The documented incidence of multiple primary lung cancer has increased as a result of the widespread use of early detection tools. We report the successful surgical treatment of a case who had consecutive metachronous adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma of the lung after successful treatment for small cell carcinoma of the lung.A 73-year-old man underwent a routine health check-up. Computed tomography showed ground-glass opacity in the upper lobe of the right lung, which was diagnosed as small cell carcinoma...

A 66-year-old woman was referred to our institute for an enlarging tumor of the thyroid, and neck and chest computed tomography scan showed not only a thyroid tumor, but also an anterior mediastinal tumor and ground-glass nodules in the lung. Because of persisting symptoms, an enlarging thyroid mass, and the possibility of cancer, excision of the tumors was proposed. A 6-cm-long vertical skin incision was made in the right axilla, a mini-thoracotomy was made in the third intercostal space, and an additional port was placed in the fifth intercostal space...

The optimal screening or treatment strategies of solitary pulmonary nodules especially ground-glass opacities (GGOs) remain controversial. With CT-guided Hookwire localization, it is accurate to find the small lesions during video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). In this study, we evaluate the efficiency and safety of CT-guided Hookwire localization of GGO-dominant (GGO component > 50%) pulmonary nodules before VATS and investigate the correlation between the radiologic features and pathology. From April 2008 to April 2014, a total of 273 patients with solitary GGO-dominant pulmonary nodules were included...

A 66-year-old woman underwent right nephrectomy for treatment of renal cell carcinoma (RCC). Two years later, she underwent wedge resection of the right lung for treatment of metastatic RCC and primary adenocarcinoma of the lung. She began oral sorafenib for the remaining nodules of the left lung, which were suspected to be metastatic RCC. Two years later, the sorafenib was changed to everolimus because of slight enlargement of the left pulmonary nodules. The carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) concentration then increased to 25...

RATIONALE: IgG4-related disease is a rare and novel disease entity that tends to involve multiple organs. The pulmonary manifestation of this disease is highly variable and may mimic lung cancer, pneumonia, interstitial lung disease (ILD), sarcoidosis, and so forth. Small airway disease is rarely reported in IgG4-related lung disease (IgG4-RLD). In the current study, we describe a rare case of IgG4-RLD with patterns of ILD and bronchiolitis. PATIENT CONCERN: A 43-year-old man had chronic cough and dyspnea on exertion for 4 years...

RATIONALE: Lung cancer has the highest mortality of all malignant tumors and is becoming the leading cause of death in China. Surgical resection is the best treatment for early non-small-cell lung carcinoma. But postoperative tumor recurrence is very common. Brain, bone and liver are the most common metastatic sites of lung cancer. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 59-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital finding a lung nodule in physical examination. No other obvious symptoms were obsessed in this patient...

A 64-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with a 16-mm non-solid tumor with pure ground-glass nodule (GGN) contents in the posterior segment near the anterior segment of her right upper lung lobe that was suspicious of adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS). Three-dimensional computed tomography (3DCT) simulation was performed to identify the subsegmental artery and vein pre- or intra-operatively. Port-access thoracoscopic bisubsegmentectomy of the right upper lobe was performed. A frozen section revealed AIS...

Segmentectomy is one of the treatment of choice for small-sized non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Although simple segmentectomy is feasible even if under thoracoscopy, complicated segmentectomy which contains more than two segmental plane divisions is difficult especially thoracoscopic surgery. We here present the case of totally thoracoscopic segmentectomy between upper division and lingular segment. In the first case, the 64-year-old female patient admitted for further examination and treatment of left lung ground glass nodule...
