OBJECTIVE We studied possible indications and combined resection in patients with lung cancer and mediastinal tumors requiring combined thoracic aortic or upper digestive tract resection. METHODS Ten patients with lung cancer and malignant mediastinal tumors (9 men and 1 woman aged 39 to 72 years; mean: 60.5) underwent combined aortic or upper digestive(More)
Forty-two patients with advanced lung cancer undergoing chemotherapy containing cisplatin (80 mg/m2) were submitted to a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effect of the combination of metoclopramide and dexamethasone for the treatment of delayed cisplatin-induced emesis occurring more than 24 hours after cisplatin administration. All patients(More)
OBJECTIVE We assessed the clinical outcome of self-expanding Wallstent endovascular prosthesis in the treatment of superior vena cava syndrome due to malignant tumors. METHODS Eleven patients with malignant superior vena cava syndrome were treated by percutaneous implantation of the self-expanding Wallstent endovascular prosthesis across the stricture(More)
Various patterns of branching are seen for pulmonary arteries and veins in the lung hilum. However, thoracic surgeons usually cannot expect to discern much anatomical detail preoperatively. If the surgeon can gain an understanding of individual patterns preoperatively, the risks inherent in exposing the pulmonary vessels in the hilum can be avoided,(More)
We encountered two cases of thymoma accompanied by pure red cell aplasia and demonstrating clonal rearrangement of the T-cell receptor beta-chain gene (TCR-beta) in lymphocytes. Patient 1 was a 55-year-old man and Patient 2 was a 43-year-old woman. Both had severe anemia and mediastinal tumors. Bone marrow aspiration was performed and pure red cell aplasia(More)
We encountered three rare cases of cancer of unknown origin affecting the mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes. Patient 1 was a 63 year-old man. Chest X-ray and CT films revealed an enlarged right hilar lymph node. A right mediastinal and hilar lymphadenectomy was performed. The histological diagnosis was metastatic squamous cell carcinoma (SCC). SCC of the(More)

Aneurysm of the ductus arteriosus in the adults is rare. A 60-year-old male with no symptoms was admitted to our hospital. 3 D-CT scans and aortograms indicated a diagnosis of aneurysm of the ductus arteriosus. Operation was done through median sternotomy with the aid of partial cardiopulmonary bypass. The saccular aneurysm was located between the aortic(More)
