A variety of pulmonary resection techniques are currently available, including pneumonectomy (intrapleural, extrapleural, intrapericardial, and sleeve pneumonectomy), lobectomy, and limited resection (sleeve lobectomy, segmentectomy, nonanatomic parenchyma-sparing resection). However, pulmonary resection is often followed by postoperative complications that(More)
Main bronchial reconstruction is anatomically suitable for benign main bronchial stenosis. But, it has been hardly recommended for operative mortality and morbidity. This study was aimed at providing validity and the proper clinical information of bronchoplasty for benign main bronchial stenosis by reviewing the results we obtained over the last ten years(More)
We aimed to retrospectively compare CT, PET, and histopathologic (the extent of bronchioloalveolar carcinoma [BAC] components) findings of solitary pulmonary nodular (SPN) adenocarcinomas of the lung to determine their value as prognostic determinants. We reviewed CT and PET characteristics of tumors and pathologic specimens from 65 consecutive patients who(More)
Herein, a case of solitary, unilateral renal metastasis in a patient with curatively resected thoracic esophageal carcinoma, who achieved a pathological complete remission after neoadjuvant concurrent chemoradiotherapy, is reported. The kidney is the 4(th) or 5(th) most common visceral metastasis site of a primary esophageal carcinoma. More than 50% of(More)
Mucous gland adenoma (MGA) of the lung is an uncommon, benign tumor that histologically resembles the mucus-secreting component of the tracheobronchial gland. The majority arises within the main, lobar or segmental bronchi. MGA presenting as a peripheral lung mass is extremely rare. We herein report a case of MGA that uniquely arose from the peripheral(More)
In this retrospective study, we investigated the incidence of esophagorespiratory fistula (ERF) in esophageal squamous cell carcinomas, clinical characteristics and outcomes of esophageal cancer patient with ERF, and effective therapeutic options. From 1998 to 2007, 1,095 patients with squamous cell carcinomas of the esophagus were treated at Samsung(More)
