Remission of newly diagnosed immune thrombocytopenia after lung cancer resection.
Ann. Thorac. Surg.
PUBLISHED: 04-04-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Secondary immune thrombocytopenia is a rare paraneoplastic syndrome of lung cancer. We report a case of pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma with newly diagnosed secondary immune thrombocytopenia. On referral, the patient's complete blood cell count was normal; however, it showed marked thrombocytopenia after 1 month. Blood biochemistry and bone marrow puncture showed normal findings. We speculated that he had immune thrombocytopenia associated with the lung cancer and planned lung resection. Sleeve middle and lower lobectomy was successfully performed with preoperative intravenous immunoglobulin and intraoperative platelet transfusion. His platelet count was restored and maintained a normal level at 8 months after the operation.

A prospective study of surgical procedures for patients with oligometastatic non-small cell lung cancer.
Ann. Thorac. Surg.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Purely localized, oligometastatic, and widely metastatic tumors are likely to require different therapeutic strategies. Although surgical procedures for isolated pulmonary, brain, or adrenal metastases from lung cancer have been extensively evaluated, most data are from retrospective studies; accordingly, we conducted a prospective multicenter trial.

Pulmonary artery injury during mediastinoscopy controlled without gauze packing.
J Cardiothorac Surg
PUBLISHED: 02-08-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The most serious complication that can occur during mediastinoscopy is hemorrhage from large vessels in the mediastinum, whereas there are few articles relating to injury to major vessels. We describe a case of 77-year-old male with mediastinal lymphadenopathy, who underwent a mediastinoscopy procedure. When the pretracheal lymph nodes adjoining the right pulmonary artery were biopsied, a massive amount of bleeding spilled out through the scope. Immediately, the scope was removed from the body and the bleeding was controlled with digital compression at the skin incision. Then we closed the incision in a three-layer manner without any gauze packing in the mediastinum. Although some reports recommended gauze packing for massive bleeding during mediastinoscopy, we believe not all cases need gauze packing because bleeding from a low-pressure circulation system component into closed compartment, such as mediastinum, would cease without resulting in a large hematoma or pseudoaneurysm.

[Reversal of pulmonary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy in surgically treated lung cancer].

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
A 61-year-old man was admitted for evaluation of an abnormal chest abnormal with progressive swelling in both hands, clubbing of all fingers and toes, and polyarthroceles. He was given a diagnosis of pulmonary hypertrophic osteoarthropathy (PHO) associated with primary lung cancer, and underwent an upper left lobectomy. Histopathological analysis revealed stage IIB adenocarcinoma of the lung with K-ras mutation, but with no evidence of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR). Postoperatively, his symptoms rapidly improved, and the preoperatively observed high levels of serum vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and interleukin 6 (IL-6) decreased to normal levels after just 1 month. VEGF and IL-6 caused by the genetic mutation of K-ras might play a role in the pathogenesis of PHO with lung cancer.

Transbronchial human interleukin-10 gene transfer reduces acute inflammation associated with allograft rejection and intragraft interleukin-2 and tumor necrosis factor-alpha gene expression in a rat model of lung transplantation.

Hide Abstract
The ability to express genes with potential immunoregulatory capacity could reduce allograft rejection (AR). This study examined the effect of ex vivo lipid-mediated transbronchial human interleukin-10 (hIL-10) gene transfer on AR and the intragraft cytokine profile in a rat model of lung transplantation.

[Pleomorphic liposarcoma in anterior mediastium].
Kyobu Geka
PUBLISHED: 02-10-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The patient was 70-year-old man. He had complained of general fatigue and hoarseness for 5 months. Chest computed tomography scan demonstrated a large anterior mediastinal tumor. The diagnosis of high grade malignant sarcoma was established with needle biopsy and the complete resection through median sternotomy was conducted. The tumor was histopathologically diagnosed pleomorphic liposarcoma. Six months after operation, right supraclavicular lymph node metastasis was noted. Radiotherapy was performed, but the liver metastasis appeared subsequently 16 months after operation. Pleomorphic type is considered one of the poorest prognostic liposarcoma and should be required special attention.

Hide Abstract
Electro-surgical device is an essential instrument for bloodless surgery after the 1st introduction by Harvey Cushing in 1926. Basal mechanisms of electric scalpels (monopolar and bipolar), current waveforms (cut, coagulation and blend), high-frequency currents and electrical shocks were commented. After 1990s, several new electro-surgical devices such as argon beam coagulator, bipolar scissors and vessel sealing system (LigaSure) were developed and introduced in chest surgery. Argon beam coagulator is useful in sealing and hemostasis of bleeding from chest walls after extrapleural dissections. Bipolar scissors can seal small vessels less than diameter 2 mm and is useful in mediastinal lymphnode dissections. Vessel sealing system is able to seal and cut vessels up to diameter 7 mm. LigaSure V is the most suitable instrument for thymic vein handling in thoracoscopic thymectomy. Clinical applications of these new surgical devices in chest surgery are discussed.

Benefits of rib head resection via costotransverse ligament release method for T3 lung cancer in the paravertebral space.

Hide Abstract
Lung cancer located in the paravertebral region occasionally invades the rib head (T3) and not the spine (T4). In such cases, a costotransverse ligament release (CTLR) method may be useful for complete resection without performing a vertebrectomy.

[Appropriate surgical approach to cystic thymic lesions].

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
We retrospectively analyzed surgical approach to cystic thymic lesions based on 25 cases. We classified to 4 groups as follows, 12 thin-wall solitary cysts with low uniform density, 7 solitary cysts with ununiform density, 5 cysts with tumor lesions and 1 multiple cysts. Preoperative image diagnoses were 10 thymic cysts, 7 cystic thymomas, 4 mature teratomas, and 1 each of multilocular thymic cyst and thymic lymphoma. Twenty cases were indicated to video-assisted thoracic surgery( VATS), the other 5 cases were operated by sternotomy. The reasons for thoracotomy were adherence with left brachiocephalic vein(LBCV)3, huge cyst compressing superior vena cava (SVC) 1, diffuse multiple cysts and tumors in hypertrophic thymus 1. Three cases were converted to open thracotomy from VATS because of dense adhesions around LBCV and malignant diagnosis. Final diagnosis are 16 congenital cysts, 3 thymomas, and one each multilocular thymic cyst, mature teratoma, thymic cancer, thymolipoma, venous hemangioma and mucosal associated lymphoid tissue( MALT) lymphoma. Thin-wall solitary cysts with low uniform density are able to diagnosed congenital thymic cysts by computed tomography( CT)/magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearances. On the contrary un-uniform density cysts or cysts with tumor lesions are difficult to achieve correct diagnoses by images. These lesions may contain thymoma or thymic cancer, so that rapid pathological examination should be prepared during surgical operation. Cysts adhering to LBCV should be operated by thoracotomy to avoid accidents of massive bleeding.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
