BACKGROUND Reexpansion pulmonary edema (REPE) is known as a rare and fatal complication after tube thoracostomy. OBJECTIVES We investigated the risk factors for the development of REPE in patients with spontaneous pneumothorax. METHODS We selected patients who were diagnosed with spontaneous pneumothorax and were initially treated with tube thoracostomy(More)
The Nuss procedure, which is a minimally invasive approach for treating pectus excavatum, has better functional and cosmetic outcomes than other invasive procedures. Cardiac perforation is the most serious complication and several methods for the prevention of intraoperative events has been developed. Although most cardiac injuries are detected in the(More)

BACKGROUND The aim of the present study was to identify chromosomal loci that contribute to the pathogenesis of aortic dissection (AD) in a Korean population using array comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) and to confirm the results using real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). MATERIALS AND METHODS Eighteen patients with ADs were enrolled in this(More)
A 68-yr-old man complaining of sudden, postprandial chest pain visited the emergency room. His symptom had been aggravated during the preceding two days. Upper gastrointestinal contrast study with gastrographin showed leakage of dye from the epiphrenic diverticulum in the lower third of the esophagus. The primary repair was urgently carried out.

BACKGROUND Tension pneumothorax is a life-threatening occurrence that is infrequently the consequence of spontaneous pneumothorax. The aim of this study was to identify the risk factors for the development of tension pneumothorax and its effect on clinical outcomes. METHODS We reviewed patients who were admitted with spontaneous pneumothorax between(More)
d a u g d 75-year-old man was admitted with excruciating chest pain and hemodynamic collapse 2 months earlier. mergency computed tomographic scan showed a rupured thoracic aorta with mediastinal hematoma (Fig 1A). n endovascular stent-graft was deployed along the decending thoracic aorta through emergency angiogram (Fig B). Completion angiogram showed(More)
BACKGROUND Development of thoracic aortic aneurysms and aortic dissections (TAAD) is attributed to unbearable wall tension superimposed on defective aortic wall integrity and impaired aortic repair mechanisms. Central to this repair mechanisms are well-balanced and adequately functional cellular components of the aortic wall, including endothelial cells,(More)
We report the case of a 16-year-old boy with a rapid growing mass on his left anterior chest wall. The mass was completely resected, and pathological examination confirmed nodular fasciitis. Benign chest tumors rarely occur in childhood. Nodular fasciitis is a benign proliferation of myofibroblast that is often mimicked by a sarcoma of the soft tissue.(More)
