A papillary fibroelastoma is rare, but it is the most common primary tumor of the cardiac valves. Most papillary fibroelastomas affect the left-sided heart valves, such as the aortic and mitral valves; however, they also rarely affect the pulmonary valve. Generally, surgical removal is strongly recommended to prevent its potential thromboembolic risks,(More)
OBJECTIVE Minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum, introduced by Nuss in 1998, has undergone a serious learning curve because of a lack of understanding on morphologies and repair techniques. To summarize the current status of minimally invasive repair of pectus excavatum, we reviewed and appraised our 10-year experience with a novel approach, a(More)
Most patients needing implantation of a ventricular assist device (VAD) require repeated sternotomy; some after cardiac surgery, and others later for heart transplantation. The purpose of this study was to establish the right thoracotomy technique as an alternative for VAD implantation to reduce repeated sternotomy-related morbidity and mortality. We(More)
We describe a simple technique for video-assisted thoracoscopic plication in patients with diaphragmatic eventration. During the plication, which is performed with a continuous running suture, a surgical assistant maintains the continuous suture traction using a homemade hook through the port. The technique can be performed easily, without any kind of(More)
A 61-year-old female was admitted to our hospital complaining of paresthesia, pain, and intermittent weakness in the right hand. A pulsating mass with bruits had developed on the patient's upper arm. We also noted an absence of radial artery pulsation. The angiographic findings revealed a classic "string of beads" appearance, which involved both brachial(More)
We report the successful endovascular repair of a growing chronic type B aortic dissection using an Amplatzer Vascular Plug II. A 44-year-old man, with previous medical history of aortic surgery and stenting complained of vague back pain. An approximately 5-mm entry remained in the stented segment of the aorta on computed tomography (CT). Endovascular(More)
We report a case of giant cell tumor originating from the anterior arc of the rib. The tumor and the surrounding chest wall were completely resected, and the chest wall defect was covered with Marlex mesh. Giant cell tumor of the bone usually originates from the epiphysis of long bones. Even when the tumor occur in ribs, it usually occur in the posterior(More)
Lymphomatoid granulomatosis (LYG) is a rare angiocentric and angiodestructive lymphoproliferative disease characterized by Epstein-Barr virus-positive B cells admixed with reactive T cells. LYG most commonly affects the lung but can also involve other extrapulmonary sites. Pulmonary LYG usually presents as multiple pulmonary nodules with rapid progression(More)
Plasmacytomas are a localized proliferation of plasma cells in the bone marrow, and are less frequently seen in extraosseous organs or tissues. Extramedullary plasmacytoma is a rare malignant neoplasm, and is especially uncommon when it arises from the mediastinum. Here, we report on a case of posterior mediastinal extramedullary plasmacytoma in a(More)
We experienced a case of bronchogenic cyst located on the left lower pleural space extending into the retroperitoneum in a 33-year-old man with left chest pain. Preoperative imaging studies and operative findings showed a broad-based cystic mass on the left lower posterior pleura and diaphragmatic pleura extending into the retroperitoneal region across the(More)
