  • [Title] Robotic-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (RATS) for benign and malignant esophageal tumors.
  • The esophagus possesses attributes that are interesting for general thoracic robotic surgeons.
  • This comprised the dissection of the intrathoracic esophagus including lymph node dissection in four patients suffering from esophageal cancer and the extirpation of a benign lesion (one leiomyoma and one foregut cyst) in the remaining two patients.
  • The median overall operating time was 173 (160-190) minutes in the oncologic cases and 121 minutes in the benign cases, including the robotic act of 147 (135-160) minutes and 94 minutes, respectively.
  • One cancer patient died after 12 months due to tumor progression and another patient had to be stented due to local tumor recurrence 19 months postoperatively.

  • Specifically, wounds on horse limbs often develop exuberant granulation tissue which behaves clinically like a benign tumor and resembles the human keloid in that the evolving scar is trapped in the proliferative phase of repair, leading to fibrosis.
  • It appears that beta-catenin may be regulated in a post-transcriptional manner while PECAM1 might help thoracic wounds mount an efficient inflammatory response in contrast to what is observed in limb wounds.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • The most important determinants of survival appear to be the biologic behavior of the tumor and the stage at the time of resection rather than the operative approach, and esophageal carcinoma will likely require systemic therapy for a cure.
  • Transhiatal esophagectomy has been used increasingly in the resection of benign and malignant disease, and has several potential advantages over transthoracic esophagectomy, including significantly decreased respiratory complications and mediastinitis due to the avoidance of thoracotomy and intrathoracic anastomosis.
  • Survival after THE is also equivalent to or better than that seen after transthoracic esophagectomy, and transhiatal esophagectomy should be considered in all patients requiring esophagectomy for benign or malignant disease.

  • Pulmonary carcinosarcoma is a rarely encountered tumor.
  • A 69-year-old man underwent left pneumonectomy in November 2000 with a diagnosis of atelectasis resulting from a tumor obstructing the left lower lobar bronchus, and also a lung abscess.
  • The tumor was initially diagnosed as pleomorphic adenoma, since it contained both benign-looking epithelial and mesenchymal elements, but immunohistochemical staining demonstrated myoglobin-positive rhabdomyosarcomatous elements along with cytokeratin-positive squamous cell carcinoma elements.

  • BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Osseous spinal tumors are an uncommon cause of persistent axial pain and muscle spasm, but even benign lesions may grow to cause deformity or neurological signs.
  • Traditional treatment approaches to resection can be debilitating even when the tumor is benign.
  • PURPOSE: Emerging technologies allow surgeons to diagnose and treat osseous neoplasms while minimizing the collateral damage caused by surgical exposure and tumor excision.
  • STUDY DESIGN: Technical considerations are presented through two cases of benign osseous neoplasm occurring in the cervicothoracic spine of competitive athletes, demonstrating the meth-ods used to provide effective treatment while maintaining maximal functional capacity.
  • METHODS: Stereotactic imaging and intraoperative guidance was used as an adjunct to tumor care in these patients.
  • Used in combination with minimally invasive, microsurgical techniques,stereotactic guidance localized and verified excision margins of benign vertebral lesions, minimizing soft tissue trauma and collateral damage.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Image guidance can accurately localize and guide excision of benign vertebral lesions while minimizing soft tissue trauma and collateral damage, allowing patients a rapid and complete return to high-demand function.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • MATERIAL AND METHODS: For the period of 1997-2009, 146 patients with periferal pulmonary tumors underwent VATS for resection of the tumor.
  • RESULTS: 112 (74.2%) of the patients underwent radical VATS resection of the tumor after intraoperative frozen sections for diagnosis.
  • 54.55% of the resected tumors were malignant and 45.45% of them were benign.
  • In 13 patients the results from the intraoperative frozen sections were not definite and we were not able to differ wether the tumor was a pulmonary metastase or a primary lung cancer, and after the final histological examination the patients were submitted to radical resection in interval.
  • In 33 of the cases we resected pulmonary metastases from an extrapulmonary primary tumor.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite the advances in diagnostic technics, only the VATS resection of the pulmonary tumor and the histological examination assures definitive diagnosis, it allows the definitive treatment for the benign lesions and indicates the correct treatment for malignant lesions.

  • There were 10 cases of primary tumors of spine (4 giant cell tumor of bone, 3 chondrosarcoma, 2 recurrent aneurysmal bone cyst, and 1 osteosarcoma), and 6 cases of solitary metastasis of thoracic or lumbar spine.
  • Among the 10 patients with primary spinal tumor, nine patients survived with tumor-free, and one with osteosarcoma died because of lung metastases 18 months after surgery.
  • Among the 6 patients with spinal metastasis, three patients survived with tumor-free, and lung metastasis occurred in 1 case 10 months after surgery, two died because of multiple metastases of internal organs 10 months and 32 months after surgery.
  • CONCLUSION: Total spondylectomy and reconstruction is a safe and effective surgery for thoracolumbar spinal tumors with neurological deficit, with pain relief, neurological improvement and minimum tumor recurrence.
  • It will be an optimal choice for patients with primary malignant, aggressive benign, or solitary metastatic bone tumors of the thoracolumbar spine with Tomita surgical classification type 3 to 5.

  • [Title] "Primary" benign retroperitoneal and intraspinal dumbbell-shaped cystic teratoma: case report.
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Primary benign cystic teratomas of the retroperitoneum are rare.
  • In this report, by presenting a case of cystic teratoma with such extension, the origin of the tumor, and the value of computerized tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the preoperative diagnosis and surgical approach for the extended lesion are discussed.
  • Preoperative computerized tomography and MRI of the thoracic and lumbar spines showed a dumbbell-shaped tumor, with the solid part residing in the right retroperitoneum near the neuroforamen of the L2-L3 spines and the cystic part extending into the spinal canal.
  • By performing right L2-L4 hemilaminectomies with a mini retroperitoneal approach, the tumor was removed en bloc in one stage.
  • The patient recovered well without any neurologic deficits, and recurrence of tumor has not been found for 9 years postoperatively.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Total surgical removal of tumor is an ideal treatment for retroperitoneal and intraspinal dumbbell-shaped cystic teratoma.
  • MRI displays the precise location, morphology, and adjacent structures of the tumor, which provide for better preoperative planning and more complete removal of tumor with less neurologic damage.

  • The tumor could be directly observed during surgery.
  • Wedge resection was performed by video-assisted thoracic surgery.
  • The in vivo color of the tumor was red, suddenly changing to white after the tumor was clamped.
  • Immunohistochemistry revealed tumor cells positive for vimentin and melanocytic markers (HMB-45 and melan-A) and negative for epithelial membrane antigen and cytokeratin.
  • With the absence of clinical findings in both kidneys, the tumor was diagnosed as a benign CCTL.

  • Despite the strong association of asbestos exposure to mesothelioma, only a fraction of persons exposed develop this neoplasm which is characterized by long latency and shortened survival.
  • We compared demographics in four asbestos-exposed groups (controls n=347, bronchogenic cancer n=67, mesothelioma n=179 and benign asbestos-induced lung disease (BALD) n=3757).
  • Thoracic tumor location, work exposure and male gender were consistently associated with shortened survival (1.9+/-1.3 years).
  • We conclude that thoracic tumor location, work exposure, male gender, long latency, early age at first exposure, presence of a second cancer, and first-degree relative with cancer define a phenotype that sets mesothelioma patients with a short survival apart from other asbestos-exposed individuals.

  • 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.
  • 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.

  • [Title] Giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath involving the thoracic spine.
  • Giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath is a common benign lesion of the synovial membrane that frequently occurs in the hand.
  • It is related to pigmented villonodular synovitis and the occurrence of pigmented villonodular synovitis or giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath in the axial skeleton is very rare.
  • To data, only three cases of giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath involving cervical spine have been reported, compared with 26 cases of pigmented villonodular synovitis.
  • Pigmented villonodular synovitis involving the thoracic spine is also extremely rare and our case represents the first reported case of a giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath involving the thoracic spine.
  • Computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed an osteolytic and expansive lesion in the left facet joint between the seventh and eighth thoracic vertebrae.
  • Although giant-cell tumor of the tendon sheath in the thoracic spine may be extremely uncommon, it should be considered in the differential diagnosis, especially when a benign lesion appears to originate in the face joint.

  • [Title] Oncogenous osteomalacia and myopericytoma of the thoracic spine: a case report.
  • OBJECTIVE: To illustrate a rare case of oncogenous osteomalacia caused by a spinal thoracic myopericytoma.
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Osteomalacia related to a tumor is well known.
  • The cause of the disorder is usually a highly vascularized, benign tumor of mesenchymal origin.
  • Location of the tumor in the spine is very rare.
  • Removal of the tumor is followed by resolution of osteomalacia.
  • Localization of the tumor at T5 and T6 levels was obtained by magnetic resonance imaging.
  • Surgical treatment consisted in a circumferential correction-fusion with hemivertebrectomy of T5 and T6 and tumor removal.
  • RESULTS: Tumor removal was rapidly followed by disappearance of the clinical symptoms of osteomalacia, and by correction of hypophosphatemia.
  • At 2-years follow-up, no recurrence of the tumor was detectable on imaging studies-the correction fusion remained stable.
  • Histologically, the tumor was classified as a myopericytoma.
  • However, secondary recurrence of the biologic markers due to an incomplete tumor removal was disclosed.
  • CONCLUSION: Removal of the tumor was followed by healing of the clinical features of osteomalacia, demonstrating the causal connection between the myopericytoma and the osteopathy.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • BACKGROUND: Lipomas are a common type of benign tumor, and may involve numerous sites.
  • They are common in the subcutaneous region of the upper back, neck, and shoulder, but are rarely seen in the thoracic cavity.
  • Symptoms caused by the tumor were seen in only one patient.
  • The resected tumor size ranged from 1.0 to 6.0 cm.
  • One of these three ended in an incomplete resection because the tumor infiltrated the brachial plexus.
  • One patient had a recurrent tumor arising from a resected margin.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Intrathoracic lipomas should be surgically resected if they are detected, because the possibility of liposarcoma or infiltrating development of the tumor cannot be excluded preoperatively.
  • We think that surgical resection of the tumor, rather than conservative management by close observation alone, is a safer treatment.

  • Inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) of the lung is a rare tumor but it should be considered when dealing with primary lung tumors in children, adolescents, and nonsmoking adults.
  • It is, from a pathologic point of view, a benign tumor composed of a spindle cell proliferation and inflammatory cells.
  • Its clinical behavior, however, is variable with a benign evolution at one, and a malignant evolution with recurrent and metastatic disease at the other end of the spectrum.
  • Diagnosis is very difficult and often only possible after resection of the tumor.

  • A 61-year-old male was found to have a tracheal tumor, which was noted at the time of screening by a chest X-ray study.
  • The tumor arose from the membranous portion 4 cm above the carina and was proven by biopsy to be a leiomyoma.
  • Because the disease is a benign tumor, all methods for resection, including bronchoscopic techniques, were thus considered.
  • We performed an endotracheal operation via a window made by an incision of the cartilagenous portion, and removed the tumor through an anterior approach.
  • This type of endotracheal operation is one of the surgical procedures for the removal of benign tracheal tumors.

  • The tumor was histologically benign at the first operation, but exhibited unusually aggressive behavior after failed radiosurgery and demonstrated clinical characteristics of malignancy such as spinal metastasis.
  • The patient underwent gamma knife radiosurgery (GKR) for recurrence after the first operation, despite the tumor being located in a resectable region.
  • The tumor did not respond.
  • Retrospectively, we speculate that if a tumor is located in a resectable region and Simpson grade I or II tumor resection is possible, direct surgery may be a safer option than GKR.

  • [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.
  • 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.

  • At our institution, we have developed a successful multidisciplinary spinal radiosurgery program in which 542 spinal lesions (486 malignant and 56 benign lesions) were treated with a single-fraction radiosurgery technique.
  • Lesion location included 92 cervical, 234 thoracic, 130 lumbar, and 86 sacral.
  • The most common benign tumors were neurofibroma (24 cases), schwannoma (13 cases), and meningioma (7 cases).
  • Thoracic, lumbar, and sacral tumors were tracked relative to either gold or stainless steel fiducial markers.
  • Tumor volume ranged from 0.16 to 298 mL (mean 47 mL).
  • The primary indication for radiosurgery was pain in 326 cases, as a primary treatment modality in 70 cases, for tumor radiographic tumor progression in 65 cases, for post-surgical treatment in 38 cases, for progressive neurological deficit in 35 cases, and as a radiation boost in 8 cases.
  • Long-term tumor control was demonstrated in 90% of lesions treated with radiosurgery as a primary treatment modality and in 88% of lesions treated for radiographic tumor progression.

  • [Title] Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura presenting with syncope episodes when coughing.
  • BACKGROUND: Solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura is a rarely encountered clinical entity which may have different clinical pictures.
  • Although the majority of these neoplasms have a benign course, the malignant form has also been reported.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: We herein describe a case of 72 year-old man with head, facial, and thoracic traumas caused by neurally-mediated situational syncope when coughing.
  • Hystological examination of the surgical specimen showed an encapsulated mass measuring 12 x 11.5 x 6 cm consistent with a solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura.
  • CONCLUSION: In our case its resection definitively resolved the episodes of situational syncope due, in our opinion, to the large thoracic mass compressing the phrenic nerve.

  • [Title] Benign giant cell tumor of the spine: an unusual indication for radiotherapy.
  • CASE REPORT: We report about a 64-year-old female patient presenting with history of three osseous and one pulmonal manifestation of a benign giant cell tumor that have manifested metachronously within 23 years.
  • Now, a further osseous lesion occurred at the seventh vertebra of the thoracic spine and was treated by dorsal instrumentation and replacement of the seventh vertebra.
  • Nine months later, local recurrence of this benign giant cell tumor developed at the thoracic spine and was treated with radiotherapy with a total dose of 45 Gy.
  • Histopathological examination again showed benign giant cell tumor without suspicion of malignancy.
  • CONCLUSION: In the literature the use of radiation therapy remains an appropriate therapy option in benign giant cell tumors with minimal adverse sequelae if primary surgical treatment is not feasible or fails.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • OBJECTIVE: This retrospective analysis examined whether diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging might be as useful as positron emission tomography with fludeoxyglucose F 18 for (1) discriminating between non-small cell lung cancer and benign pulmonary nodules and (2) predicting aggressiveness of non-small cell lung cancer.
  • METHODS: Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging and positron emission tomography were performed before surgery in 110 patients with 124 pulmonary nodules smaller than 3 cm, including 96 non-small cell lung cancers and 28 benign nodules.
  • Sensitivity and specificity for differentiating between cancers and benign nodules were compared between diffusion-weighted imaging and positron emission tomography.
  • Apparent diffusion coefficient in diffusion-weighted imaging and fludeoxyglucose F 18 uptake in positron emission tomography were examined with respect to pathologic tumor stage; lymphatic, vascular and pleural involvements; and histologic differentiation.
  • CONCLUSION: Diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance imaging is equivalent to positron emission tomography in distinguishing non-small cell lung cancer from benign pulmonary nodules but is not as useful for predicting aggressiveness of non-small cell lung cancer.
