Radiation therapy has emerged as a useful alternative therapy for patients with early-stage, non-resectable lung cancer. In patients whose malignancies are difficult to localize on computed tomography imaging, such therapy becomes difficult. Fiducial markers are frequently placed in peripheral pulmonary lesions to assist radiation therapy. Although placement of markers under linear endobronchial ultrasonography within mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes has been reported, no strategy has been described to assist radiotherapy of purely endobronchial tumors...

BACKGROUND: Uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is increasingly being performed worldwide. During the operation, specimen extraction from a small incision less than or equal to 2 cm can be challenging without the use of a commercial specimen retrieval device. There have been no reports regarding the use of the glove-finger technique in uniportal VATS. The aim of this study was to assess the feasibility of the alternative specimen retrieval method by glove-finger technique...

Ectopic adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) syndrome is a challenging diagnosis only responsible for approximately 10% of Cushing syndrome cases. It has been associated with a variety of benign and malignant tumors including a carcinoid tumor accompanied by aspergilloma in our case that was significantly difficult to be detected. We report a patient over 70 years old with uncontrolled hypertension and hypokalemia presenting with generalized edema. Laboratory results revealed ACTH-dependent Cushing syndrome, but imaging studies did not show any discrete lesions secreting ACTH...

BACKGROUND: Endobronchial ultrasound(EBUS)-guided transbronchial biopsy(TBB) is the preferred diagnostic tool for peripheral pulmonary lesions(PPLs) and mastering this procedure is an important task in the training of chest physicians. Little has been published about the learning experience of physicians with this technique, particularly at an institutional level. We aimed to establish a learning curve for EBUS-guided TBB for PPLs at a medical center. METHODS: Between 2008 and 2015, consecutive patients with PPLs referred for EBUS-guided TBB at National Taiwan University Hospital were enrolled...

BACKGROUND: Navigational bronchoscopy and other imaging modalities have improved the ability to evaluate pulmonary nodules/mass. Many of these lesions are located outside the bronchial airway and are difficult to access even with these devices. The Transbronchial Access Tool (Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN) allows the bronchoscopist to create a pathway from the bronchial airway, across the lung parenchyma, and into the target lesion. We are reporting the feasibility and safety of this new device...

Thoracoscopic partial pulmonary resection for small peripheral nodules without using a stapler has been introduced to our hospital. After partial resection was performed with electrocautery, two different methods of surface sealing were used: a coagulation method (C method) with Soft Coagulation alone, and a coagulation-suturing method (CS method) with Soft Coagulation combined with continuous suturing. The clinical outcomes of the two methods were retrospectively compared in this study. The C method was used in 19 lesions of 18 cases, and the CS method was used in 20 lesions of 19 cases...

REVIEW
Annemie Van Breussegem, Jeroen M Hendriks, Patrick Lauwers, Paul E Van Schil
Salvage surgery is a relatively new entity in thoracic surgery and oncology. Salvage resection after radiotherapy refers to surgery as only remaining therapeutic option in patients who were treated with high-dose stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) for early-stage lung cancer or full-dose chemoradiation for locally advanced lung cancer. Indications include locally progressive tumors, recurrent local or locoregional disease, or specific complications after radiotherapy such as lung abscesses or infected, necrotic cavities...

The patient was a 79-year-old woman who had received enucleation of right pulmonary papilloma 7 years earlier. She experienced bloody sputum and was therefore referred to our hospital. Chest computed tomography revealed a mass shadow(21 mm) in the right upper lobe (S2). By bronchoscopy, there was no bulging lesion in the visible range. SCC and CEA increased to 6.4 ng/ml and 6.42 ng/ml, respectively. Whole-body 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) showed increased FDG uptake in the region of the right-lung mass shadow (maximum standardized uptake value 12...
