BACKGROUND: Spontaneous pneumothorax usually occurs as a result of rupture of a subpleural bleb or emphysematous bulla. Spontaneous pneumothorax, which is more common in younger age groups, might be the first sign of pulmonary malignancy, especially when it manifests in older patients. METHODS: Data of all patients who were treated for spontaneous pneumothorax in our clinic between June 2013 and June 2017 were examined retrospectively. The demographic characteristics, diagnostic methods, pathologic subtypes, and treatment protocols applied in patients diagnosed with malignancy during the treatment period were investigated...

The case of a newborn with a post-ductal interrupted aortic arch combined with severe hypoplasia of the thoracic descending aorta and intracardiac defects is described. Extraanatomic bypass surgery was performed in the neonatal period to connect the ascending and descending parts of the aorta. Closure of a ventricular septal defect and excision of hypertrophied bands in the right ventricle with subsequent ventriculotomy were delayed beyond neonatal age.

PURPOSE: We performed antegrade thoracic endovascular aneurysm repair via the ascending aorta in selected high-risk patients scheduled for open surgery, in whom an iliofemoral or abdominal aortic approach was not feasible. We present our initial experience with this approach. METHODS: Of 16 consecutive patients who underwent antegrade endovascular aneurysm repair via the ascending aorta at our institution, 3 had an emergency intervention for rupture and 3 had an urgent intervention for impending rupture or complicated aortic dissection...

Endobronchial metastasis from extrapulmonary solid tumors is rare, and endobronchial metastasis from the prostate is even more unusual. An 80-year-old patient presented with significant dyspnea secondary to metastatic stromal cell sarcoma of the prostate, which occluded the right main bronchus. The tumor, causing complete collapse of the right lung, was found on computed tomography and confirmed by bronchoscopy. We successfully excised the lesion using cryotherapy, with immediate resolution of symptoms and radiological lung reexpansion...

Primary cardiac tumors are rare, and myxomas represent the most common type. Myxoma in a child is very rare. Herein, we present the case of a 4-year-old boy who was diagnosed with a right atrial mass two months after open-heart surgery for removal of a supra-mitral ring and repair of an interatrial septum aneurysm. He underwent surgery for resection of the mass, and pathological studies showed it was a cardiac myxoma. After 45 months of follow-up, the patient was alive without any recurrence or problems. This is the most rapidly growing myxoma ever reported in a child...

OBJECTIVE: Esophageal perforation is a life-threatening condition associated with high mortality and morbidity. Ambiguous clinical presentation is one of the most common causes of delayed and difficult diagnosis of esophageal perforation. In this retrospective single-center study, we reviewed the outcome of primary closure in patients with esophageal perforation between 2009 and 2017. METHODS: The data of 65 patients attending our department of thoracic surgery (from 2009 to 2017) for esophageal perforation were reviewed...

A 74-year-old female with caseous calcification of the mitral annulus and interstitial pneumonia was admitted with stroke due to calcific emboli. Computed tomography revealed an oval calcification with homogeneous density in and scattered calcification under the posterior mitral annulus, which was detected for the first time. Computed tomography performed during treatment for pneumonia and stroke showed changes in the shape and density of the caseous calcification; however, scattered calcification under the mitral annulus persisted...

BACKGROUND: The aims of this study were to evaluate the on-pump beating-heart technique of coronary artery bypass in patients with acute myocardial infarction and left main disease, and to retrospectively compare the early postoperative results with those of conventional on-pump arrested-heart coronary surgery. METHODS: Eighty-five patients with acute myocardial infarction caused by left main disease, who underwent emergency surgery between January 1998 and April 2017 at Saiseikai Utsunomiya Hospital, were enrolled in this study...

BACKGROUND: Small-cell lung cancer is a highly aggressive and metastatic epithelial lung malignancy. A small percentage of these tumors can be detected at an early stage and may be appropriate for surgical treatment. We analyzed the data of patients with early-stage small-cell lung cancer who underwent lobectomy and mediastinal lymph node dissection. METHODS: Between January 2011 and December 2016, 26 patients with early-stage small-cell lung cancer underwent lobectomy and mediastinal lymph node dissection and were included the study...

The arterial switch operation was performed on a 38-day-old infant with d-transposition of the great arteries and abnormal origin of the left anterior descending and right coronary arteries from a non-facing sinus. A vertical aortic tube flap was established to lengthen the abnormally originating coronary arteries, by transecting part of the ascending aorta 2 cm above the coronary orifices. Both coronary arteries were transferred to the neoaortic root in a single extended tube.

BACKGROUND: Pneumothorax is a common condition with various management options. We aimed to determine the current surgical practice in the United Kingdom. METHOD: An online questionnaire regarding surgical strategy was sent to all consultants who were members of the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery (80 thoracic). RESULTS: Fifty-six consultants, mainly thoracic, responded to the survey. Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery was unanimously the preferred approach, the majority (59%) using 3 ports...

BACKGROUND: Growing teratoma syndrome is a rare phenomenon seen in nonseminomatous germ cell tumors after chemotherapy, where the tumor grows paradoxically despite normalization of tumor markers. It has been found in various locations, most commonly, the retroperitoneum in association with metastatic disease. The occurrence of growing teratoma syndrome in a mediastinal primary is very rare and there are only a few reports in the literature. METHODS: In a retrospective review, out of 12 patients with mediastinal involvement by a germ cell tumor, 5 had a primary from the mediastinum...

BACKGROUND: Rupture of the costal margin is uncommon. Whilst most often seen after major trauma, we describe its occurrence in patients with no direct chest trauma. METHODS: A search was performed in our thoracic surgery database for all patients with rupture of the costal margin. Patients were excluded if the injury was a result of trauma. Data were collected on sex, age, body mass index, profession, past medical history, smoking status, presenting complaint, mechanism of injury, and management...

BACKGROUND: Cardioplegia is an integral part of myocardial protection. The superiority of blood cardioplegia in adult patients has been reported. However, this is yet to be studied in cyanotic pediatric patients. METHODS: A randomized open-label trial was conducted in 70 patients with tetralogy of Fallot. They were divided into two groups: 35 patients had crystalloid cardioplegia (controls), and 35 had blood cardioplegia. Lactate and coronary oxygen extraction in arterial blood and the coronary sinus were measured immediately after cessation of cardiopulmonary bypass, 15 and 30 min later...

AIM: We present the clinical outcomes of patients who underwent delayed (>30 days) open surgical repair after endovascular aortic aneurysm repair. METHODS: All patients receiving delayed open repair of infrarenal and juxtarenal aortic aneurysms after endovascular repair from July 2001 to December 2017 were retrospectively reviewed. Patients' baseline characteristics, indications for delayed open conversion, and time between endovascular repair and open conversion are described...
