A coin-sized pericardial defect and cardiac rupture on(More)
Surgical management for simultaneous pulmonary resection and cardiac surgery remains controversial. We report a case of coexisting lung carcinoma and angina pectoris who was managed successfully with a concomitant operation via the left anterolateral thoracotomy through the fourth intercostal space. After left lower lobectomy, left anterior descending and(More)
A 66-year-old man, who had undergone surgical resection of a primary noninvasive thymoma (type B1) in the right anterolateral mediastinum 6 years before, underwent follow-up computed tomography (CT) scanning.

A 61-year-old male stonecutter was in excellent health until December 1988 when he was admitted to Miyagikenritsu Semine Hospital with an abnormality on chest X-ray film. Chest X-ray film revealed a left anterior mass that was confirmed on chest CT scan and MRI. Biochemical examinations and serum protein electrophoresis demonstrated hypoproteinemia (5.4(More)
We compared the prediction of postoperative pulmonary function in two groups: chronic pulmonary emphysema (CPE) group (n = 30) and normal control group (n = 41). These patients had a lobectomy because of lung cancer. We measured pulmonary function test (FVC, EFV1, TLC, FRC, RV, DLco), and pulmonary perfusion scan before and after surgery. We found(More)
We report a case of chest wall abscess caused by Mycobacterium bovis BCG that arose as a complication 1 year after intravesical BCG instillation. We identified M. bovis BCG Tokyo 172 in the abscess by PCR-based typing of Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex and analysis of variable number of tandem repeats data.
A 60-year-old man presented with sudden palpitations in September 1993, and was admitted to hospital with a diagnosis of atrial fibrillation and heart failure. The patient was suspected of having collagen disease, because of a positive test for antinuclear antibodies and a high sedimentation rate. He was referred to lou hospital. Chest radiographic findings(More)
Tonsillar metastasis from neoplasms, including lung cancer, are extremely rare, and the prognosis for patients with tonsillar metastases is rather poor. We herein describe a case of long-term survival following radiation for lingual tonsillar metastasis from a bronchial adenocarcinoma. A 39-year-old male was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma of the right lung(More)
