OBJECTIVE Mediastinal staging is one of the most important problems in thoracic surgery. Although the pathological examination is a generally accepted standard, none of the currently used techniques enables complete removal of all lymph node stations of the mediastinum. The aim of the study is to present a new technique of transcervical extended mediastinal(More)
OBJECTIVE Effects of preoperative steroids on morbidity and mortality after transsternal thymectomy are analyzed. METHODS There were 620 transsternal thymectomies for myasthenia gravis performed in the period 1973-2002. There were 547 patients with nonthymomatous myasthenia, including 17 patients submitted to repeated thymectomy (rethymectomy) and 46(More)
UNLABELLED The aim of the study was to analyze the impact of extended rethymectomy in patients with myasthenia gravis. Additionally, an original technique of resternotomy is described. Extended rethymectomy was performed on 21 patients with refractory myastenic symptoms after a previous transsternal thymectomy. In 8 patients the original video-assisted(More)
OBJECTIVE Preliminary report: presentation of the new technique of transcervical right upper lobectomy with transcervical extended mediastinal lymphadenectomy (TEMLA) for NSCLC. METHODS Two patients underwent the operation that was performed through the collar incision, with elevation of the sternal manubrium with the mechanical sternal retractor. TEMLA(More)
BACKGROUND To analyse a diagnostic yield of the transcervical extended mediastinal lymphadenectomy (TEMLA) in restaging of the mediastinal nodes after neoadjuvant chemo- or chemo-radiotherapy for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). METHODS From 1 January 2004 to 30 April 2009, 63 patients who underwent induction chemotherapy or chemo-radiotherapy for N2(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study is to present the new technique of transcervical-subxiphoid-videothoracoscopic "maximal"thymectomy introduced by the authors of this study for myasthenia gravis. MATERIALS AND METHODS Two hundred and sixteen patients with Osserman scores ranging from I-III were operated on from 1/9/2000 to 31/12/2006 for this study. The(More)
Ninety-three patients with pulmonary metastases (PM) were operated on between 1983 and 1997. Surgical complications occurred in 8 (9%) of patients. Two (3%) of patients died in hospital, 7 were operated on again due to further PM. An average survival after lung metastasis surgery was 40 months, median 22 months. 44% and 35% of patients survived respectively(More)
INTRODUCTION The aim of the study is to analyze diagnostic yield of the new surgical technique--the Transcervical Extended Mediastinal Lymphadenectomy (TEMLA) in preoperative staging of Non-Small-Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC). MATERIAL AND METHODS Operative technique included 5-8 cm collar incision in the neck, elevation of the sternal manubrium with a special(More)
