OBJECTIVES: Adjuvant cisplatin-based chemotherapy is recommended for routine use in patients with Stage IIA, IIB or IIIA non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) after complete resection. Results obtained for Stage IB were not conclusive. While vinorelbine plus cisplatin is the preferred choice after resection, combining vinorelbine with carboplatin promises improved compliance and delivery of drugs due to lower toxicity. We evaluated the impact of this option on treatment compliance and survival under real-world conditions...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary resection for a second lung cancer after pneumonectomy is generally considered to be at prohibitive risk. Using a population-based database, we examined treatment patterns and survival in patients who underwent pulmonary resection after pneumonectomy for lung cancer. METHODS: We queried the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) database (1988-2012) to identify patients who underwent pneumonectomy and subsequently experienced contralateral non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC)...

INTRODUCTION: Thyroid metastases from colorectal cancer are uncommon and few cases are described in literature. CASE PRESENTATION: A 64-year-old female patient presented with an asymptomatic right cervical nodule with a rapid growth six years after sigmoidectomy for cancer and two years after resection of colorectal lung metastases. Increased CA 19.9 was identified and a thoracoabdominal CT scan revealed the onset of new metastatic bilateral pulmonary lesions. Neck ultrasonography showed a suspicious nodule in the right thyroid lobe, and Fine-needle Aspiration Cytology (FNAC) of the nodule lead to the diagnosis of colorectal cancer metastasis...

We report one of the rare anatomical variations of the pulmonary vein wherein the left V2 drained into the inferior pulmonary vein. A 63-year-old man was referred to our hospital because of an abnormal shadow in the left lower lung field that was noted on chest X-ray. Computed tomography (CT) revealed a tumor in the left lower lobe. A biopsied tumor specimen was diagnosed as an adenocarcinoma, and thus, left lower lobectomy was performed. Preoperative three-dimensional CT revealed that an anomalous V2 of the left lung drained from the superior segment into the inferior pulmonary vein...

The current study presents the case of a 66-year-old male presenting with fever and chest pain. Chest enhanced computed tomography scanning revealed a mass shadow in the right upper lobe with chest wall invasion. 18-Fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) identified the localized uptake of the mass lesion in the right upper lobe, in addition to diffuse uptake by the bone marrow. The laboratory data on admission revealed marked leukocytosis and an elevated C-reactive protein level (CRP). Serum concentrations of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (G-CSF) and interleukin 6 were increased...

A majority of observational studies on overall survival following thoracoscopic vs open lobectomy for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer did not demonstrate a significant difference, whereas several meta-analyses on this topic showed a significant difference. The PubMed, Scopus, and Web of Science databases were queried for studies published in the English language. We searched for meta-analyses and original studies comparing overall survival between thoracoscopic and open lobectomy for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer...

INTRODUCTION: Video-assisted thoracoscopic sleeve lobectomy is safe and feasible for lung cancer. We describe a case of video-assisted thoracoscopic sleeve lobectomy via a novel single intercostal space (SIC) three-port approach. CONCLUSIONS: This case demonstrates that a SIC three-port thoracoscopic approach is effective in sleeve lobectomy, and possesses potential advantages in perioperative pain management and rehabilitation.

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...

Fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/computed tomography (FDG PET/CT) has an effective role in both diagnosis and management of patients with lung cancer. There are many reasons could cause false positivity on PET/CT.A 60-year-old man was admitted a mass on thorax CT and diagnosed as squamous cell carcinoma. Lobectomy with lymph node dissection was performed after evaluation of distant metastases. There were pathological lymph nodes detected on PET/CT at six month following period. Endobronchial ultrasonography guided transbronchial needle aspiration was performed for differantial diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT) or stereotactic ablative radiotherapy (SABR) has been reported to be a comparable alternative therapy to surgery for patients with T1-3N0M0 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, it has not been clarified whether SBRT/SABR is as effective as surgery. We conducted this study to compare the efficacy of SBRT/SABR and surgery in the treatment of T1-3N0M0 NSCLC. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An electronic and a manual search of the literature was conducted in PubMed, Embase, and the Wiley Online Library in all published data before January 1, 2017...

Patients with lung cancer who show EML4-ALK translocation are routinely treated with ALK tyrosine kinase inhibitors, although in the majority of cases, these patients develop resistance over time. The central nervous system is a common of site of recurrence in this population, which calls for next-generation drugs that can penetrate into the brain and achieve clinically meaningful central nervous system activity. Here, I report the case of a female patient diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the lung in 2005, at the age of 46 years, who underwent lobectomy and then experienced a series of progression episodes 6 years later...

AIM: Due to the emerging experience in VATS (video assisted thoracic surgery) lobectomies, in some centers the so called "non-intubated" VATS lobectomies (NITS - non-intubated thoracic surgery) gained increased authority, during which endotracheal intubation and muscle relaxation of the patient is not carried out, thus surgery is being performed with the patient breathing spontaneously. The recent study deals with our initial experience gained during uniportal NITS VATS lobectomies. PATIENTS AND METHOD: Between 24...

INTRODUCTION: In the last decade, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) has had a major effect on thoracic surgery. Retrospective series have reported benefits of VATS when compared with open thoracotomy in terms of postoperative pain, postoperative complications and length of hospital stay. However, no large randomised control trial has been conducted to assess the reality of the potential benefits of VATS lobectomy or its medicoeconomic impact...
