Succesful emergecy operation for cardiac tamponade by clamshell incision approach due to acute growthing of giant mediastinal tumor
症例は17歳男性. 2003年7月中旬より, 湿性咳漱および発熱を認め近医受診し, 胸部X線, 胸部CT上前縦隔に巨大な異常陰影を認め, 当院紹介となった. 胸部CT, MRIにて前縦隔に巨大な腫瘍を認め, 経皮生検にても確定診断がつかず, 急速に呼吸状態の悪化を認め, 心タンポナーデをきたした. このため緊急回避的にvolume reductionを目的とした腫瘍摘除術を施行した.Expand

A Case of Hilar Type Early Squamous Cell Carcinoma Treated by Bronchoplasty Without Lung Resection.
背景. われわれは早期扁平上皮癌に対して肺実質を切除しない気管支形成を行った. 症例. 症例は69歳, 男性. 主訴は血痰. 胸部X線写真では異常を認めなかったが, 気管支鏡検査で右上葉気管支/中間幹分岐部に限局した隆起病変を認め, その生検で扁平上皮癌と診断された. 胸部CT写真では壁外浸潤はないと判断された. また, 有意なリンパ節腫大も認められなかった. 右後側方切開で第5肋間から開胸し,Expand
