Founded in to combat TB, the ATS has grown to tackle asthma, COPD, lung cancer, sepsis, acute respiratory distress, and sleep apnea, among other diseases. Utility of microbiological testing of thoracic lymph nodes sampled by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) in patients with mediastinal lymphadenopathy.

Harris RM, Arnaout R, Koziel H, Folch E, Majid A, Kirby JE Diagn Microbiol Infect Dis Feb;84(2) Mediastinal Diseases and Masses / Thymoma Stanford thoracic surgeons evaluate and treat a high volume and wide variety of mediastinal diseases.

Since many of these lesions are benign, minimally invasive approaches, which allow for less discomfort and faster recovery, can often be utilized.

Circumflex retroesophageal right aortic arch simulating mediastinal tumor or dissecting aneurysm. Shuford WH, Sybers RG, Gordon IJ, Baron MG, Carson GC. The authors present three cases of circumflex right aortic arch, a retroesophageal arch in which the aorta crosses from right to left behind the esophagus to descend on the left by: An Aortic Deformity Simulating Mediastinal Tumor: A Subclinical Form of Coarctation congenital anomaly of the aortic arch and the first part of the descending aorta which so closely simulated a superior mediastinal tumor that thoracic exploration was necessary in the first case to clarify the nature of the lesion.

been able to find in Cited by: The usual causes of acute hemomediastinum and hemothorax include chest trauma, rupture of a thoracic aortic aneurysm or aortic dissection. 1 Marsten et al 3 described a case of acute cardiac tamponade due to invasion of a benign mediastinal teratoma into the pericardial sac.

Other cardiovascular complications described include invasion of the Cited by:   1 Introduction. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is one of the common causes of death due to malignancy, and the mediastinal lymph node (MLN) involvement is the most important factor that determines both treatment method and the prognosis [1,2].Thus, it is crucial to detect the presence of mediastinal lymphatic metastasis by:   Thoracic aortic aneurysm (TAA) is a life-threatening condition that causes significant short- and long-term mortality due to rupture and dissection.

Aneurysm is defined as dilatation of the aorta of greater than % of its normal diameter for a given segment. For the thoracic aorta, a diameter greater than cm is generally considered dilated, whereas greater than cm would be considered.

Between April and Februarywe treated 10 patients, aged 25 to 73 years, with anastomotic On thoracic aneurism simulating mediastinal cancer. book false aneurysm originating from the proximal thoracic aorta. Figure Mediastinal compartments on lateral chest radiography. The radiographic anterior mediastinum is situated anterior to an imaginary line drawn along the anterior tracheal and then continued inferiorly along the posterior heart border.

This includes the prevascular space (blue). The paravertebral compartment is situated posterior to an imaginary line that joins the anterior thoracic. In this case report we present a rare case of extensive mediastinal lipomatosis combined with severe aortic valve stenosis.

There was no history of thoracic trauma, obesitas, Cushing's syndrome, or chronic steroid intake, which are medical conditions known to be associated with mediastinal by: 2. The mediastinal branches are numerous small vessels which supply the lymph glands and loose areolar tissue in the posterior mediastinum.

Despite guidelines for preoperative invasive mediastinal staging (IMS) for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), concordance with guidelines and whether the use of these guidelines results in expected frequency of lymph node metastases has not been evaluated.

Our objectives were to determine guideline concordance, reasons for nonconcordance, and, in patients who did not receive IMS, to determine Cited by: 5. Chun AS, Elefteriades JA, Mukherjee SK. Medical treatment for thoracic aortic aneurysm - much more work to be done.

Backer Mediastinal lesions of vascular origin are responsible for approximately 10% of mediastinal masses. They may mimic neoplasms and must be considered in the differential diagnosis of mediastinal masses.

Knowledge of the vascular anatomy of the mediastinum along with its variations and anomalies. The mediastinum (from Medieval Latin mediastinus, "midway") is the central compartment of the thoracic cavity surrounded by loose connective tissue, as an undelineated region that contains a group of structures within the mediastinum contains the heart and its vessels, the esophagus, the trachea, the phrenic and cardiac nerves, the thoracic duct, the thymus and the lymph nodes of FMA:   Mediastinitis is a serious, and potentially life-threatening infection of the mid-chest area (or mediastinum.) While it most commonly occurs after cardiac surgery* (and is a dreaded complication of), it can also occur after large thoracic procedures or blunt trauma.

This topic discusses anesthetic care of patients undergoing a surgical procedure (eg, biopsy or resection) for diagnosis or treatment of an anterior mediastinal mass.

Editor-In-Chief: C. Michael Gibson, M.S., M.D. Associate Editor(s)-in-Chief: Mohammad Salih, MD. Overview. Thoracic aortic aneurysm is associated with an abnormality on chest x-ray in 80 to 90% of patients.

Smaller aneurysms (saccular aneurysms) may not be apparent on a chest x ray. The Value of Surgical Mediastinal Staging in Clinical N1 Lung Cancer (ASTER3) The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators.

Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government. Thymoma is a common neoplasm in the anterior mediastinum but rarely arises from the middle mediastinum. We report 3 patients with thymoma that arose from the middle mediastinum.

Surgical resections were performed with dissection of the azygos vein, which led to safe separation of the tumors from mediastinal structures. Although rare, thymoma should be included in the differential diagnosis Author: Takamasa Fukui, Ryota Sumitomo, Yosuke Otake, Cheng-long Huang.

Mediastinal disease refers to an unusual group of tumors that form in the area called the mediastinum, which separates the lungs in the middle of the thoracic cavity. About half of mediastinal tumors cause no symptoms and are found on a chest X-ray or scans for another reason. Occasionally, they will cause symptoms of chest pain or shortness of.

Video 1 Completely thoracoscopic right upper lobectomy and mediastinal lymph node dissection. Introduction Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has been constantly used in the diagnosis and treatment of intrathoracic disease after Roviaro and his associates firstly reported anatomic lobectomy in completely thoracoscopic operation (1).

Robotic thoracic surgery of the anterior superior mediastinal bronchogenic cyst The patient, a year-old man, was admitted due to “chest pain for 20 days” and “presence of anterior superior mediastinal mass”.

Thoracoscopic left mediastinal lymph node dissection In Japan, the use of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for primary lung cancer is increasing. However, it is not easy to perform mediastinal lymph node dissection using VATS as effectively as it is performed using thoracotomy.

Castleman's disease (CD) or angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia is a rare spectrum of lymphoproliferative disorders.

CD tumors are commonly localized in the mediastinum and are usually asymptomatic. The mainstay of treatment is surgical resection and has typically been performed using open thoracotomy. Few reports in the literature describe video assisted thoracoscopic resection of Cited by: 8.There is a large aneurysm involving the descending thoracic and suprarenal abdominal aorta which on the antero-posterior view has a maximal diameter of 9cm involving the distal thoracic aorta.

There is rupture of the aneurysm into the right pleural space which tracks into the posterior mediastinum as well as to the right retroperitoneum.

Aortic dissection is the most devastating complication of thoracic aortic disease. In the more than years since thoracic aortic dissection was first described, much has been learned about diseases of the thoracic aorta.

In this review, we describe normal thoracic aortic size; risk factors for dissection, including genetic and inflammatory conditions; the underpinnings of genetic diseases Cited by:
