  • [Title] Results of chest wall resection and reconstruction in 162 patients with benign and malignant chest wall disease.
  • BACKGROUND: Chest wall resection is a complicated treatment modality with significant morbidity.
  • The purpose of this study is to report our experience with chest wall resections and reconstructions.
  • METHODS: The records of all patients undergoing chest wall resection and reconstruction were reviewed.
  • Diagnostic procedures, surgical indications, the location and size of the chest wall defect, performance of lung resection, the type of prosthesis, and postoperative complications were recorded.
  • RESULTS: From 1997 to 2008, 162 patients underwent chest wall resection.113 (70%) of patients were male.
  • The most common indications for surgery were primary chest wall tumors.
  • The most common localized chest wall mass has been seen in the anterior chest wall.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Chest wall resection and reconstruction with Bone cement sandwich with mesh can be performed as a safe and effective surgical procedure for major chest wall defects and respiratory failure is lower in prosthetic reconstruction patients than previously reported (6).

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Thymus Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A 63-year-old female, who was noticed a chest mass approximately 4 cm in diameter on a chest X-ray, was admitted to our hospital.
  • We thought that it was a benign chest wall tumor such as a neurogenic tumor by the findings of the chest computed tomography (CT).
  • Resection of the tumor was performed.
  • Neurogenic tumor was suspected by the frozen section.
  • Since she had undergone thymothymectomy 23-years ago, the tumor was considered to be a pleural recurrence of thymoma.
  • We thoroughly checked the chest CT again, and detected another tumor at the right of the thoracic vertebra.
  • Third surgery was performed and the tumor was resected.
  • Thymomas are low-grade malignant tumor, but long-term clinical follow-up is necessary.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Elastofibroma dorsi--differential diagnosis in chest wall tumours.
  • BACKGROUND: Elastofibromas are benign soft tissue tumours mostly of the infrascapular region between the thoracic wall, the serratus anterior and the latissimus dorsi muscle with a prevalence of up to 24% in the elderly.
  • The pathogenesis of the lesion is still unclear, but repetitive microtrauma by friction between the scapula and the thoracic wall may cause the reactive hyperproliferation of fibroelastic tissue.
  • The tumor sizes ranged from 3 to 13 cm.
  • Due to its benign behaviour, the tumor should be resected only in symptomatic patients.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Gasless endoscopic thyroidectomy via an anterior chest wall approach using a flap-lifting system.
  • The purpose of this prospective study was to estimate the feasibility and safety of ET using an anterior chest wall approach without gas insufflation.
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: The working space was created under a direct and endoscopic view through a 3-cm incision on the anterior chest wall.
  • RESULTS: We performed 30 ETs in patients with benign thyroid tumors from December 2003 to December 2005.
  • One patient with ET was converted to open thyroidectomy secondary to substernal extension of the tumor.
  • CONCLUSION: These data suggest that gasless ET using an anterior chest wall approach is safe and feasible in selected patients for treating benign thyroid tumors.

  • [Title] Chest wall tumors in childhood and adolescence.
  • Chest wall tumors in childhood and adolescence can be very heterogeneous and may appear at any age from infancy to late adolescence.
  • They can be benign or malignant and secondary or primary.
  • A careful history and physical examination should be followed by adequate imaging studies to delineate the primary tumor and identify possible sites of dissemination.
  • Rigid chest wall re-construction has the advantage of eliminating paradoxical respiration and obviating the need for postoperative ventilation.
  • Another advantage is maintenance of chest wall contour.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Mesenchymal hamartoma of the chest wall.
  • Mesenchymal hamartoma of the chest wall is an unusual lesion remarkable for its occurrence in early infancy and alarming clinical presentation, which often suggests malignancy.
  • Despite its aggressive appearance and propensity to attain massive size, the lesion behaves biologically in a benign fashion, and may be treated conservatively, provided that there is no respiratory compromise secondary to mass effect.
  • The case of an incompletely resected mesenchymal hamartoma that has behaved in a benign fashion after more than 4 years of follow-up is discussed here.
  • We present this case to provide insight and raise clinicians' awareness of the behavior of an extremely rare tumor.

  • [Title] Management of primary chest wall tumors: 14 years' clinical experience.
  • BACKGROUND: Primary chest wall tumor is rare but it encompasses tumors of various origins.
  • We analyzed our experience with primary chest wall tumors with emphasis on its demographic presentation and management.
  • METHODS: From 1991 to 2004, 62 patients with the diagnosis of primary chest wall tumors were enrolled.
  • Lipoma, chest wall metastasis, direct invasion from nearby malignancy, infection, and inflammation of chest wall were excluded.
  • Malignant and benign tumors were equally distributed.
  • Chondrosarcoma and lymphoma were the 2 most common types of malignant chest wall tumors.
  • Nine of 31 patients (29.0%) with benign chest wall tumors were free of symptoms whereas patients with malignant chest wall tumors were all symptomatic (p = 0.002).
  • All patients with primary chest wall tumors, except 6 who had medical treatment only, underwent surgical resection.
  • Patients with malignant chest wall tumors were older than those with benign tumors (p < 0.001).
  • The mean largest diameter of tumors was also larger in malignant tumors than in benign tumors (p = 0.04).
  • CONCLUSION: Patients with primary malignant chest wall neoplasm were older than those with benign tumors.
  • The mean size of malignant tumors was larger than that of benign tumors.
  • Adequate surgical resection remains the treatment of choice for patients with primary chest wall tumors.
  • For patients with isolated chest wall lymphoma, surgical resection followed by chemotherapy can be considered to obtain a better outcome.

  • BACKGROUND: We undertook this study to describe the clinical characteristics of primary benign chest wall tumors and to evaluate the results of surgical treatment.
  • METHODS: We included patients with primary benign chest wall tumors who underwent surgical resection at the Instituto Nacional de Cancerología from January 1990 to December 2002.
  • All patients had histological confirmation of benign tumor.
  • The most frequent tumor was chondroma in seven cases (41%), followed by aponeurotic-muscle fibromatosis in five (30%) and the remaining five patients had other tumor types.
  • All patients were subject to thoracic wall resection, including at least one rib in each patient.
  • In eight patients (47%) the thoracic wall was reconstructed with marlex mesh, whereas the remaining patients required no reconstruction.
  • Of the 17 patients, 16 are alive without disease and one presented delayed recurrence with an aponeurotic-muscle fibromatosis requiring a new thoracic wall resection.
  • One patient presented with respiratory complications and died after 42 days due to thoracic wall instability.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Primary benign chest wall tumors are locally aggressive and must be treated with wide resection of the thoracic wall.

  • The early and late results of CWT resection and chest wall reconstruction were evaluated retrospectively.
  • The children who underwent chest wall resection for CWT between January 1990 and November 2003 were evaluated retrospectively.
  • Seventeen children (male/female = 12/5, mean age: 7.58 years) underwent chest wall resection for CWT.
  • The diagnosis was malignant tumor in 12 (70%) and benign in 5 (30%).
  • They were Ewing's sarcoma (ES) (n = 4), primitive neuroectodermal tumor (PNET) (n = 3), Askin's tumor (n = 1), rhabdomyosarcoma (RMS) (n = 2), neuroblastoma (n = 2), osteochondroma (n = 1), aneurysmal bone cyst (n = 2) and hamartoma (n = 2).
  • Preoperative chemotherapy was given to most patients with malignant tumor.
  • All patients had only local tumor at the time of resection.
  • All tumor tissues with the affected rib/ribs were resected en bloc with the adjacent tissues.
  • Chest wall defects were repaired primarily (n = 8) or with grafts (n = 9).
  • Patients with benign tumor were free of complaints or complications during follow up.
  • All patients with malignant tumor received postoperative chemotherapy.
  • Chest wall resection is planned to control local disease.
  • Chest wall reconstruction may be needed for large defects following resection of CWT.

  • One case was a relapse from previous interventions and in three cases the tumor was bilateral.
  • A surgical excision was performed in all cases, confirming the source of the tumor.
  • We concluded that elastofibroma is a tumor that appears most frequently in middle aged women, and that diagnosis can be established through the use of imaging and fine needle aspiration biopsy.
  • Given its benign character and slow growth, in cases where it is asymptomatic, its evolution can be controlled without surgical intervention.

  • These defects measured between 8 x 12 cm and 14 x 16 cm and were located in the anterior part of the chest in 3 cases, with resection of the upper half of the sternum and the internal part of both clavicles and the first three ribs, and in the lateral part of the chest in 11 cases with resection between 3 and 5 ribs.
  • The histological diagnoses of these tumors were 3 chondrosarcomas, 3 sternum and 1 rib metastases, 2 desmoid tumors, 1 Ewing's sarcoma, 4 benign tumors.

  • We report the case of a 76-year man who presented with a laterosternal chest wall mass located in the fourth intercostal space.
  • Diagnosis of intercostal benign schwannoma was suggested by medical imaging and confirmed histologicolly upon surgical removal.
  • Chest wall solitary schwannoma is exceptional.
  • Our case is still more interesting by its peripheral localisation and late occurence following a chest trauma.

  • [Title] Polyostotic fibrous dysplasia of the ribs: An unusual cause of chest pain and dyspnea.
  • Fibrous dysplasia is a benign bony abnormality that may be monostotic or polyostotic and is not included in the differential diagnosis of chest pain and dyspnea, since it is typically asymptomatic.
  • A 36-year-old man presented with left-sided chest pain and dsypnea for three months.
  • Chest X-ray and chest computed tomography scan revealed a large solid mass arising from the anterior parts of the left fourth, fifth, and sixth ribs and compressing the adjacent lung parenchyma.
  • The tumor was completely removed surgically and histopathologic examination was consistent with fibrous dysplasia without malignant transformation.
  • This report demonstrates that polyostotic dysplasia of the ribs may cause chest pain and dyspnea and present radiographically as a large mass.

  • [Title] Assessment of tumor recurrence in patients with colorectal cancer and elevated carcinoembryonic antigen level: FDG PET/CT versus contrast-enhanced 64-MDCT of the chest and abdomen.
  • OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to compare FDG PET/CT and contrast-enhanced 64-MDCT of the chest, abdomen, and pelvis in the detection of tumor recurrence in patients with colorectal cancer and an elevated level of carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA).
  • MATERIALS AND METHODS: A retrospective analysis included 50 patients (31 men, 19 women; mean age, 61 years; range, 28-89 years) with 55 clinical events of elevated or increasing CEA level who underwent FDG PET/CT and MDCT for suspected tumor recurrence.
  • Fifty-four of 61 tumor sites suspected as tumor recurrence with any imaging technique were found to be local recurrence or metastatic colorectal cancer at final analysis.
  • The other seven sites were one separate malignant tumor (small lymphocytic lymphoma) and six benign lesions.
  • One site of tumor recurrence was missed prospectively at both MDCT and PET/CT.
  • In a tumor site-based analysis, the sensitivities of PET/CT and MDCT were 98.1% and 66.7% (p < 0.0001), and the specificities were 75% and 62.5% (p = 0.56).
  • Tumors correctly identified with PET/CT and missed with MDCT were local recurrence in the presacral space (n = 5), metastatic subcentimeter lymph nodes (n = 4), peritoneal deposits (n = 3), and recurrences at the periphery of radiofrequency ablated metastatic lesions of the liver (n = 2) and in the abdominal wall (n = 1), liver (n = 1), and uterine cervix (n = 1).

  • Benign fibrous histiocytoma (BFH) of bone is rare in occurrence, and rib is an unusual site.
  • There are limited case reports of this entity in the literature, and cytodiagnosis of this tumor is not described.
  • A 24-year-old man presented with a firm mass and pain in the right lateral chest wall.
  • Radiologically, giant cell tumor (GCT), BFH, and plasmacytoma were suspected.
  • In fine-needle aspiration cytology (FNAC), admixture of benign stromal cells and scattered osteoclast type giant cells were found in the smears.
  • Cytologic diagnosis of BFH of rib is difficult as this tumor may mimic other giant cell containing tumors of bone in FNAC.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • BACKGROUND: The solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP) is a rare primary tumor arising from mesenchymal cells in the areolar tissue subjacent to the mesothelial-lined pleura.
  • The tumor appears to be unrelated to malignant pleural mesothelioma, the most common primary tumor of the pleura.
  • METHODS: In just over half of these cases, the neoplasm presents as an asymptomatic mass, is often quite large, and is benign in 78% to 88% of patients.
  • The initial evaluation and diagnosis, tumor classification, surgical treatment, results of therapy, and long-term prognosis are reviewed, based on a selective review of the literature from MEDLINE beginning 1980.
  • RESULTS: Complete en bloc surgical resection is the preferred treatment of benign and malignant varieties of the tumor.
  • Sessile tumors on the chest wall require wide local excision, often with chest wall resection because of their propensity for local recurrence.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Benign SFTP has a high cure rate and an 8% local recurrence rate that is usually amenable to curative re-excision.
  • The majority of patients with recurrent disease die of the tumor within 2 years.

  • [Title] [The clinicopathological features and surgical treatment of solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura].
  • OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinicopathological features and surgical treatment of solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura (SFTP).
  • Clinical findings were mainly cough, chest pain and other local symptoms.
  • Eight cases received tumor resection by wedge resection of the lung, and the other 3 patients by middle and lower lobe resection, lower lobe resection and chest wall tumor resection, respectively.
  • Nine tumors were located in the visceral pleura, 1 tumor below the visceral pleura, and 1 tumor in parietal pleura.
  • There were abundant gross collagenous fibers and thick-walled blood vessels around tumor cells.
  • The tumor cells were stained with vimentin (100%, 11/11), CD(34) (100%, 11/11), CD(99) (63.6%, 7/11), and bcl-2 (63.6%, 7/11), but no expression of CD(31).
  • Of the 11 cases, 9 were histologically diagnosed as benign SFTP, 1 as cell-abundant type of SFTP, and another as malignant SFTP.
  • CONCLUSIONS: SFTP should be considered when chest X-ray and CT showed single nodule or mass in the pleura.
  • For a tumor with a diameter les than 5 cm, resection by VATS or VATS plus small thoracotomy is a good surgical procedure.

  • INTRODUCTION: Giant cell tumor (GCT) is an aggressive, but usually benign bone neoplasm most commonly arising in the metaphysis/epiphyses of long bones.
  • While they are categorized as benign tumors, they can be locally aggressive and clinically have metastatic potential.
  • The most common locations of this tumor include the distal femur, proximal tibia, and distal radius.
  • Radiologically, the initial impression included a deep-seated breast cancer with local chest wall invasion.
  • CONCLUSION: The histological features of bland mononuclear and multinucleated giant cells along with the lack of any additional mesenchymal elements led to the diagnosis of giant cell tumor.
  • Resection of tumor was performed.

  • Desmoplastic fibroma is a very rare primary tumor of bone, closely related to aggressive fibromatosis of soft tissue.
  • Although considered a benign lesion, it can be very aggressive locally and has a high rate of local recurrence after incomplete surgical excision.
  • We present two cases of desmoplastic fibroma involving this unusual location with lytic costal lesion and chest wall extension.
  • Histological examination after surgical resection revealed that the tumor consisted of spindle cells with small, elongated nuclei in a background of numerous collagen fibers and infiltrating lamellar bone.

NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program. NCI CPTC Antibody Characterization Program .

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The OMF Pathology Department Registry was searched for cases coded from 1990 to the present as "SEF," "fibrosarcoma not otherwise specified" or "neoplasm of uncertain histiogenesis."
  • Tumor location included the infra-temporal fossa, buccal mucosa (recurrence extending into bone), anterior mandible (intraosseous primary, focally extending into soft tissue), and left parotid and submandibular gland (with metaplastic bone) regions.
  • Tumor sizes ranged from 1.0 to 5.7 cm, median 3.5 cm.
  • The spindled to primarily epithelioid tumor cells formed moderately cellular sheets and cords of irregularly contoured medium to large, round to oval, occasionally overlapping nuclei, indistinct nucleoli, wispy eosinophilic (retracting) cytoplasm, and distinctive cytoplasmic borders, embedded in osteoid-like stroma.
  • Immunohistochemically, the tumor cells were positive for vimentin, 1 case focally for CD34, whereas all cases were negative for S100 protein, keratins, EMA, desmin, and SMA.
  • Metastatic disease was present in 2 cases, to chest wall and lumbar/thoracic spine at 12 and 21 months, respectively.
  • The differential diagnosis for these tumors in this site includes sclerosing carcinoma, Ewing/PNET, osteosarcoma, osteoblastoma, and benign and malignant myoepithelial salivary gland tumors.
  • The collagen, focal spindle cell features, HPC-like vasculature, and weak focal CD34 reactivity in one case might have raised a possible relationship between OMFRSEF and low grade malignant solitary fibrous tumor, but the intraosseous propensity, epithelioid features and relative lack of CD34 make this a distinctive entity.

MedlinePlus Health Information. consumer health - Lung Cancer.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • A 75-year-old man with right chest pain was diagnosed with primary lung cancer in the right apical portion, and was treated with chemoradiotherapy because of a synchronous left adrenal tumor of 1.6 cm.
  • Since the adrenal tumor did not increase in size for three months and there were no other relapses, the right upper lobectomy of the lung with the excision of the chest wall was performed.
  • Afterward, an enlargement of the left adrenal tumor was encountered; he was admitted to our hospital for an operation.
  • For the metastatic adrenal tumor from lung cancer, we performed a hand-assisted laparoscopic adrenalectomy.
  • After the first report in 1992, the laparoscopic adrenalectomy has been established as the curative operation to adrenal benign tumor.
  • We conclude that the laparoscopic adrenalectomy for malignant tumor is a safe, curative, and clinically useful surgical technique.

  • CT tends to underestimate early chest wall invasion and peritoneal involvement and has well-known limitations in the evaluation of lymph node metastases.
  • Because of its excellent contrast resolution, MRI is superior to CT, both in the differentiation of malignant from benign pleural disease, and in the assessment of chest wall and diaphragmatic involvement.
  • Perfusion MRI is the most promising technique for the assessment of the tumor microvasculature.
  • It has been shown that FDG-PET is useful for the differentiation of benign from malignant lesions, for staging and monitoring metabolic response to therapy against MPM, and that it has prognostic value.
  • An initial report on PET/CT imaging of MPM has shown increased accuracy of overall staging, improving the assessment of tumor resectability.

  • A 48-year-old man was initially seen in the emergency room, admitted to the hospital, and worked up with a transthoracic echocardiogram, a transesophageal echocardiogram, and a computer tomography scan of the chest.
  • A mobile left atrial tumor measuring 6 x 4 x 5 cm was found attached to the left atrial dome, left atrial cuff, and left pulmonary veins.
  • At the time of surgery, the findings confirmed that the mass was attached broadly to the left atrial dome wall-epicardium, and the attachments were similar to those of the transesophageal echocardiographic findings.
  • The tumor could not be adequately excised, and reconstruction of the defect was not feasible with the heart in situ.
  • We therefore decided to explant the heart and excise the tumor with a 0.5-cm margin of healthy tissue.
  • The pathology diagnosis was a benign cavernous hemangioma.
  • To our knowledge, this report is the first of cardiac autotransplantation for benign hemangioma.

  • In 4 cases the tumor occurred within 1 to 3 years after abdominal surgeries.
  • On CT and MRI, the lesion appeared benign with malignant growth pattern, and caused compression of the adjacent organs and vessels or encasement of the vessels; the border was unclear without encapsulation, and necrosis and calcification was scarce.
  • The density and signal of the tumor were well distributed.
  • CONCLUSION: The CT and MRI features of desmoid-type fibromatosis are characteristic, and CT and MRI are valuable modalities for the diagnosis and differential diagnosis of the tumor.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The authors present a series of 5 cases of cutaneous sebaceous neoplasms having "benign" architectural features (symmetry, sharp circumscription, smooth borders, pseudoencapsulation) but which simultaneously displayed atypical cytology including abnormal mitoses, high mitotic rates, and moderate-to-striking pleomorphism including bizarre cells.
  • All presented with a small solitary nodule (6-9 mm) on the forehead (2), chest wall (1), occiput (1), and shoulder (1).
  • This was the only tumor to contain numerous tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes.
  • Further studies are needed to confirm their seemingly benign course as identified in this report, as are further investigations to clarify their association with Muir-Torre syndrome.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma has been fully described histologically; however, the fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytologic findings are scantily defined, and the distinction from other benign and malignant soft tissue tumors can be difficult.
  • CASE: We examined FNA cytologic material from a slowly growing, large chest wall mass in a 28-year-old woman.
  • The excised tumor was well circumscribed, focally infiltrating the surrounding muscles.
  • The tumor cells were spindly, with fusiform, uniform nuclei.
  • The tumor cells were positive for vimentin, alpha-1-antitrypsin and lysozyme and negative for S-100, actin, desmin and CD34.
  • CONCLUSION: Although low grade fibromyxoid sarcoma is a rare neoplasm, it should be recognized and distinguished from other soft tissue tumors because of its low malignant potential.
  • The definitive FNA cytologic diagnosis can be challenging but is possible if the tumor is adequately sampled, with multiple passes from different areas.
