Development of a tracheoesophageal fistula (TEF) is a serious complication of treatment for esophageal or lung cancer, especially following radiation therapy. However, development of a TEF as a complication of chemotherapy or tracheal stenting after surgical debulking is quite uncommon. We herein report a rare case involving a patient with advanced adenocarcinoma invading the mediastinum who rapidly developed a TEF after placement of a tracheal stent and administration of nivolumab immunotherapy...

Background Pulmonary and left atrial resection is not yet an established treatment for patients with primary lung cancer involving the left atrium. We investigated the clinical course of patients with primary lung cancer involving the left atrium who were treated with pulmonary resection and partial atrial resection.

Background: Long-term patency is required during treatment for benign airway stenosis. This study investigated the effectiveness of surgical airway plasty for benign airway stenosis. Methods: Clinical courses of 20 patients, who were treated with surgical plasty for their benign airway stenosis, were retrospectively investigated. Results: Causes of stenosis were tracheobronchial tuberculosis in 12 patients, post-intubation stenosis in five patients, malacia in two patients, and others in one pat...

Purpose: The aims of this study were to evaluate the efficacy and safety of S-1 versus cisplatin (CDDP)+S-1 in patients with completely resected stage II and IIIA non–small cell lung cancer, and to identify predictive biomarkers whose expression in the tumors was significantly associated with patient outcome. Experimental Design: A total of 200 patients were randomly assigned to receive either S-1 (40 mg/m2 twice per day) for 2 consecutive weeks repeated every 3 weeks for 1 year (S group) or CDD...

A 61-year-old man with right lung cancer underwent right lower lobectomy. He suffered from postoperative broncho-pleural fistula, which was treated with thoracic drainage. After disappearance of air leakage, a drainage tube was removed. Forty days later, severe back pain, cough and fever were observed. Chest computed tomography showed enlarged thoracic cavity around the bronchial stump. Bronchoscopical examination revealed complete dehiscence of the bronchial stump. Because thoracic cavity was l...
Objectives Surgical reconstruction is commonly recommended for the treatment of tuberculous airway stenosis. The clinical conditions underlying tuberculous airway stenosis often involve both cicatricial stenosis and malacia. Surgical reconstruction alone may not improve the respiratory symptoms of patients with both types of airway stenosis. This study retrospectively reviewed patients who underwent surgical reconstruction for tuberculous airway stenosis to investigate the most appropriate treat...

Purpose: Malignant airway stenosis extending from the bronchial bifurcation to the lower lobar orifice was treated with airway stenting. We herein examine the effectiveness of airway stenting for extensive malignant airway stenosis. Methods: Twelve patients with extensive malignant airway stenosis underwent placement of a silicone Dumon Y stent (Novatech, La Ciotat, France) at the tracheal bifurcation and a metallic Spiral Z-stent (Medico’s Hirata, Osaka, Japan) at either distal side of the Y st...
