Two male patients who were admitted to our department with wheezing, and symptoms of recurrent pneumonia, aged 7 and 10 years, were both diagnosed to have endobronchial masses in the right intermediate bronchus. We employed bronchial sleeve resections with pathological results of carcinoid tumor. Patients were discharged on postoperative days 7 and 8,(More)
It is accepted that cardiopulmonary exercise testing is one of the most valuable parameters, especially peak oxygen uptake (VO(2)), for the evaluation of risk assessment in lung cancer surgery. It therefore represents an attractive way of identifying a patient at high risk for postoperative complications. However, many patients do not achieve the maximal or(More)
OBJECTIVES Some of the lung cancer patients who are treated surgically with curative intent ultimately die in the early postoperative period. The aim of this study is to analyze the causes of death within 1 year of resection for lung cancer in our patients. METHODS Six hundred and twenty patients, who underwent resection for lung cancer with a curative(More)
Large cell carcinoma of the lung with a rhabdoid phenotype is very rare. We present a 55-year-old man with multiple nodules in his lung. He had an emergency operation because of abundant hemoptysis. The microscopic appearance was a large cell carcinoma with a pure rhabdoid phenotype. There were no foci of any other carcinomatous components. Tumor cells had(More)
In this case report we present a novel treatment for bronchial fistula after lobectomy. The patient had right upper lobectomy for T1 N0 M0 peripheral adenocarcinoma and he had been reexplored 4 days later for massive air leak in another chest surgery department. After the reoperation the bronchial fistula persisted and the patient was admitted to our(More)
This prospective study was done between February 2001 and December 2002 on 84 non-small cell lung cancer patients who were apparently operable. We selectively performed mediastinoscopy to 46 patients (54.76%, group 1) with the following indications: clinical T4 tumor, high operative risk, radiologically enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes, clinical T3 tumors(More)
Hydatid disease, which is caused by the Echinococcus granulosis parasite, is endemic in certain parts of the world where close contact between humans and sheep exists. The disease most commonly involves the liver and other solid organs. This report describes the case of a teenage girl with hydatid disease involving the right axilla and various other sites(More)
An 8-year-old girl was evaluated for hemoptysis, 50 mL/day, which lasted for 3 days. Computed thoracic tomography detected a mass lesion in the right lower lobe. During rigid bronchoscopic examination, exanguinating hemoptysis occurred, and a Fogarty balloon catheter was placed in the right intermediate bronchus. Thoracotomy revealed a 2 x 2-cm mass in the(More)
