Accidents while using lawn mowers are often reported, but chest injuries are rare. We report a case of a penetrating pulmonary injury due to a rusty nail thrown by a lawn mower. A 63-year-old man injured his left precordium by a thrown object while using a lawn mower; he thereafter visited a nearby hospital. A computed tomography image showed a left-sided pneumothorax and a penetrating pulmonary injury of the left upper lobe due to a foreign body. Pneumothorax was treated with thoracic drainage ...

BACKGROUND Pulmonary resection is occasionally performed in postpneumonectomy patients with contralateral lung lesions, such as metachronous or metastatic lung cancer. Careful intraoperative respiratory management is essential in such patients. This study evaluated the respiratory management of postpneumonectomy patients who underwent contralateral pulmonary resection with selective bronchial blockade of the lobe or segment to be resected. METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the surgical finding...

Double aortic arch (DAA) is a rare congenital anomaly of the heart and aorta in which a vascular ring that surrounds the trachea and esophagus is formed. In most patients, respiratory distress and dysphagia develop in childhood, and asymptomatic adult patients are rarely known. Herein, we describe a patient with lung cancer and DAA. A 66-year-old man who had DAA underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic right upper lobectomy and mediastinal lymph node dissection for primary lung cancer. Lymph node ...

Air leakage is a common complication after pulmonary resection, which is usually caused by direct lung damage during surgery. Herein, we describe a case in which a pulmonary cyst developed rapidly in the right lower lobe and ruptured 10 days after right upper lobectomy. A 49-year-old man, who was a heavy smoker, underwent thoracoscopic right upper lobectomy for primary lung cancer. No air leakage was observed postoperatively, and the chest drain tube was removed on postoperative day 1. Although ...

Objectives We previously reported that the use of a stapler to divide intersegmental planes did not decrease preserved pulmonary volume or function relative to electrocautery. However, preservation of pulmonary volume or function can be compromised when a stapler is used with larger intersegmental planes. Here, we assessed the correlations between preserved lung volume and pulmonary function after segmentectomy and the size of the intersegmental planes, based on the division method.

BACKGROUND: Chylothorax after lung cancer surgery is relatively rare but must be considered as a complication of thoracic surgery. METHOD: Between January 2012 and June 2017, 818 patients underwent lung cancer surgery at our hospital. Among them, 14 (1.7%) patients with chylothorax were retrospectively reviewed. Three patients were treated with oral intake cessation except water and total parental nutrition( TPN)[TPN group], 11 patients were treated with a fat-free diet( fat-free diet group). RE...

Background Tumor spread through air spaces (STAS) has recently been reported as a novel form of lung adenocarcinoma invasion that can negatively affect survival; however, its role in pleomorphic carcinoma remains unclear. The goal of this study was to characterize tumor STAS in pleomorphic carcinoma, including its association with clinicopathologic features and prognosis. Methods Tumor specimens obtained from 35 consecutive patients with pleomorphic carcinoma who underwent surgical resection bet...
