OBJECTIVES: Contrast-enhanced harmonic endoscopic ultrasonography (CEH-EUS) has been used to diagnose solid pancreatic lesions (SPLs). The aim of this study was to investigate the efficacy of CEH-EUS-guided fine-needle aspiration (CEH-EUS-FNA) compared with that of conventional EUS-FNA for the diagnosis of SPLs.. METHODS: Forty patients with solid pancreatic lesions who visited Fukushima Medical University between September 2013 and June 2014 were recruited for this prospective study. Twenty patients underwent CEH-EUS-FNA, and 20 patients underwent conventional EUS-FNA. The sampling rate, sensitivity, accuracy, and number of needle passes required to obtain sufficient samples were compared between the two groups.. RESULTS: Patient characteristics, sampling rate, accuracy, and sensitivity were not significantly different between the two groups. The final diagnosis of patients who underwent CEH-EUS-FNA was pancreatic cancer in 19 and intraductal papillary mucinous carcinoma in one. Nineteen ...
Mediastinal hematoma rarely occurs after a minor traffic injury. A woman in her forties was transferred to the emergency room by ambulance due to a traffic accident. Computed tomography (CT) revealed no abnormal findings, and she went home. Two days after the accident, the contrast-enhanced CT was repeated, which revealed cervical and mediastinal hematomas. Because it was possible that there was active bleeding from the right inferior thyroid artery, embolization of the right inferior thyroid artery was performed; however, her condition further deteriorated, so we performed emergency surgery to achieve hemostasis and remove the hematoma. Because of oozing from the right thyroid lobe, we performed right hemithyroidectomy and drainage of mediastinal space and right thoracic cavity. Since there was no bleeding site in the mediastinum, we thought that the mediastinal hematoma was due to bleeding from the thyroid gland. Her postoperative course was uneventful, and she is doing well at 9 months of follow-up

TY - JOUR. T1 - Disseminated tuberculosis presented with mediastinal lymphadenopathy, nodular thickening of pleura and liver involvement in a diabetic patient. AU - Chen, Yi Jen. AU - Chen, Chang-Wen. AU - Hsiue, Tzuen-Ren. PY - 2007/12/1. Y1 - 2007/12/1. N2 - Tuberculosis can involve many organs and have a broad spectrum of image presentation. It may resemble malignant diseases and thus confuse the judgment of the clinician. We report a 60-year-old diabetic woman suffered from chronic cough for 2 years and whose computed tomography scan revealed multiple pleural nodules with mediastinal lymphadenopathy and multiple liver masses. We approached this case as malignant disease initially but found it to be a systemic tuberculosis infection after a series of examinations. Tuberculosis may have radiological presentation like malignant disease. Physicians should consider tuberculosis as a possibility for those patients with underlying diseases, which can potentiate tuberculosis infection.. AB - ...

The risk of life-threatening complications during induction of anesthesia in patients with anterior mediastinal mass is well recognized. Maintenance of spontaneous ventilation during anesthesia is an accepted standard goal in all published reports. However, the decision to paralyze the patient, which is really needed in most surgical procedures, is still a challenging event. In this study,

Conventional transbronchial needle aspiration (C-TBNA) has been proven to be a safe, minimally invasive, and cost-effective technique in establishing the diagnosis of mediastinal pathologies. We studied the success of C-TBNA in our community practice, in patients with mediastinal lymphadenopathies. The technique of C-TBNA was learned solely from the literature, videos, and by practicing on inanimate models during hands-on courses. Conventional TBNA, with 21- and/or 19-gauge Smooth Shot Needles, was performed on consecutive patients with undiagnosed mediastinal lymphadenopathy. Fifty-four patients (38 men), mean age 56.9±11.8 years, underwent C-TBNA. Thirty-three patients had nodes ,20mm. The final diagnoses were malignancy,29; sarcoidosis, 9; reactive lymph nodes, 15; and tuberculosis, 1. The final diagnosis was established by C-TBNA in 27. The exclusive diagnostic yield of TBNA was 42.5% (n: 23). Nodal size had an impact on outcome (P=0.002), whereas location did not (P=0.82). C-TBNA was ...
For patients with a possible mediastinal mass, the first step is to obtain a chest radiograph. Following the chest radiograph, a CT can help to further delineate the features of the tumor. Additional workup could include: echocardiogram and pulmonary function tests [1,3,4]. Ultimately, tissue diagnosis will be necessary. There is no ideal anesthetic technique for a patient with AMM, as any technique can be associated with morbidity and mortality. However, the overall anesthetic goals should include: maintenance of spontaneous ventilation, coordination of appropriate equipment for airway and cardiac support, and ensuring availability of emergency team members [2]. Based on the presence or absence of respiratory symptoms, degree of tracheal compression, mediastinal mass ratio and other factors, patients may be classified as being at high or low risk (Figure 3). A low risk patient, who does not have any respiratory symptoms or tracheal compression by CT, may proceed with a general anesthetic. ...

The results of this systematic review suggest that the transesophageal use of the echobronchoscope is a safe and effective method of accessing the mediastinum, and provides incremental diagnostic yield over and above that achieved with EBUS-TBNA alone. Overall, we found a good incremental yield (approximately 8%) of adding EUS-B-FNA to the EBUS-TBNA procedure in the diagnosis of mediastinal lymphadenopathy. The sensitivity of the combined technique was significantly higher than EBUS-TBNA alone (91% vs 80%), in mediastinal staging of lung cancer. In fact, only 10 combined procedures need to be performed to achieve a diagnosis in one additional patient, when compared with EBUS-TBNA alone. The sensitivity of the combined technique is similar to the sensitivity (86%) reported in a meta-analysis of combined EBUS-TBNA plus EUS-FNA by Zhang et al10 However, our analysis is different from the previous meta-analysis in that we have included only those studies that have utilized the same echobronchoscope ...

A 63-year old man with a history of coronary artery disease and nasopharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma status post surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy was admitted to the ICU with respiratory failure and septic shock secondary to left lower lobe pneumonia. Notably this patient had been admitted with pneumonia four times in the previous five months, with one occurrence complicated by S. pneumoniae bacteremia. CT chest without contrast at time of admission showed left lower lobe pneumonia, multifocal bronchiolitis and mediastinal lymphadenopathy felt to be reactive in the setting of evidence of prior granulomatous disease in the chest (Figure 1). WBC at time of admission was 14.1 K/uL with an ANC of 13.2 K/uL but an ALC of only 100. Serum immunoglobulin levels revealed: IgG 165 (range 600 - 1,560 mg/dL) and IgA 53 (range 90 - 410 mg/dL). Vaccine titers showed poor antibody response - five out of twenty pneumococcal serotypes were within the protective range. Flow cytometry demonstrated an ...

Castlemans disease (CD) or angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia is a rare spectrum of lymphoproliferative disorders. CD tumors are commonly localized in the mediastinum and are usually asymptomatic. The mainstay of treatment is surgical resection and has typically been performed using open thoracotomy. Few reports in the literature describe video assisted thoracoscopic resection of these tumors. The differential diagnosis for mediastinal masses is extensive, and CD tumors, although uncommon, should be considered. We describe a case report of a posterior mediastinal Castlemans tumor adherent to the esophagus, which was resected thoracoscopically and review the literature.
The results of this study show that EUS with FNA is an accurate method for diagnosing sarcoidosis in an unselected group of patients with mediastinal lymphadenopathy of unknown origin. The sensitivity and specificity were 89% and 96% after exclusion of the indefinite cases in both groups. These values must be appreciated in the context of the difficult and often incomplete clinical diagnosis of sarcoidosis.. Mediastinal lymphadenopathy represents a diagnostic challenge because of the variety of potential pathological aetiologies and the difficulty of access for tissue sampling. Different diagnostic modalities have been used for evaluating mediastinal lymphadenopathy of undetermined origin including CT, MRI, bronchoscopy with TBB, mediastinoscopy, and thoracotomy. Evaluation of the mediastinum using EUS-FNA has been found to be useful for a number of indications. Several publications have shown that EUS-FNA establishes the diagnosis in a high percentage of patients with mediastinal ...
Perioperative management of patients with an anterior mediastinal mass is difficult. We present a 35-year-old woman who showed delayed compression of the carina and left main bronchus despite no preoperative respiratory signs, symptoms, or radiologic findings due to an anterior mediastinal mass and uneventful stepwise induction of general anesthesia. Even use of a fiberoptic bronchoscope (FB) after induction of anesthesia was not helpful to predict delayed compression of the airway. Therefore, the anesthesiologist and the cardiothoracic surgeon must prepare for unexpected delayed compression of the airway, even in low risk patients who are asymptomatic or mildly symptomatic without postural symptoms or radiographic evidence of significant compression of structures ...

Hello, my name is Dr. Gaetane Michaud. Im the chief of interventional pulmonary medicine at NYU Langone Health in New York City. My area of focus in pulmonary medicine has been in thoracic oncology. For the last 15 years I have been managing patient complications from tumors in the lung, as well as doing diagnostics for patients that have either lung cancer or other cancers affecting the lungs. Were going to talk today about a case of a 64-year-old man with stage 4 adenocarcinoma of the lung presenting with progressive dyspnea. The symptoms failed to respond to two courses of antibiotics so he was referred to see a pulmonologist. The chest x-ray shows a lung mass and this was confirmed by CT scan that also showed mediastinal lymphadenopathy. The pulmonologist performed an endobronchial ultrasound-guided core biopsy of the mediastinal mass as well as the affected lymph nodes. And multiple specimens were collected including specimens for dedicated molecular characterization. Essentially what we ...
What the Anesthesiologist Should Know before the Operative Procedure Mediastinal masses can be anterior, middle, or posterior in their location. In general, anterior mediastinal masses (lymphomas, thymomas, germ cell tumors, metastatic lesions, and thyroid masses) are problematic due to compression of both airway and vascular structures. Middle (bronchogenic cysts, granulomas, and lymphomas) and posterior mediastinal…. ...
Thoracic fungal infections have a complex and variable presentation, ranging from benign self-limited processes, which spontaneously resolve, to severe life-threatening infections associated with disabling morbidity and high mortality. Persistent fungal infections in normal individuals may either resolve without producing symptoms, or worsen leading to severe complications of hemoptysis, mediastinal fibrosis, empyema, and meningitis. Immune-compromised hosts demonstrate greater susceptibility to fungi than normal individuals and have more severe outcomes including vascular invasion, septicemia with fungal dissemination, organ infarction, and death. Adding to this complexity, the epidemiology of fungal disease is constantly changing as species emerge or relocate or increase in virulence. Early intervention can improve survival and in some cases obviate the necessity of surgery. It is critical therefore to recognize the clinical manifestations of thoracic fungal infection early in its clinical ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - CT of posterior mediastinal masses.. AU - Kawashima, Akira. AU - Fishman, E. K.. AU - Kuhlman, J. E.. AU - Nixon, M. S.. PY - 1991/1/1. Y1 - 1991/1/1. N2 - This article presents an algorithmic approach to the evaluation of posterior mediastinal masses seen with computed tomography (CT). CT remains the study of choice, since it not only can be used to help confirm the presence of these masses, but it also helps define the (a) location and extent of the lesion, (b) adjacent organ involvement, or (c) vascular involvement. Causes of posterior mediastinal masses include esophageal lesions, congenital or acquired vascular lesions, foregut cysts, intrathoracic goiters, mediastinal pseudocysts, fat-containing tumors, adenopathy, neurogenic tumors, infectious spondylitis, and vertebral tumors. From the CT appearance of the lesion, one can often distinguish among the various masses and identify their origin and cause. This information enables patient triage and therapy to be expedited and, ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Computed tomographic evaluation of canine and feline mediastinal masses in 14 patients. AU - Yoon, Junghee. AU - Feeney, Daniel A. AU - Cronk, Daniel E.. AU - Anderson, Kari L. AU - Ziegler, Laura E.. PY - 2004/11/1. Y1 - 2004/11/1. N2 - A 15-year retrospective analysis of histologically proven canine and feline mediastinal malignancies at the University of Minnesota was conducted to identify patients imaged by computed tomography (CT). The goal of the study was to characterize the CT appearance, to determine if there were any tumor type-specific appearances, and to clarify the role of CT in patients with mediastinal masses. Fourteen patients meeting these criteria were available for evaluation. The masses were characterized based on the presence or absence of contrast enhancement, internal architecture, size, extent of local invasion, the presence of pleural fluid, and the presence of regional vascular invasion. Within the limits of this study and the histopathologic information ...
Benign TOF occurs in the setting of prolonged mechanical ventilation via endotracheal tube or tracheostomy tube; excessive cuff pressure of endotracheal tube or tracheostomy tube; blunt trauma to the chest or the neck; traumatic airway injury; granulomatous mediastinal infections; stent-related injuries; and ingestion of foreign bodies or corrosive products [5]. In the past, the most common cause of acquired benign TOF was from granulomatous mediastinal infection such as tuberculosis. However, with the increased prevalence of intubations and tracheostomies, ∼75% of acquired benign TOFs are deemed iatrogenic [4]. Diddee and Shaw [4] estimate that up to 3% of patients who are mechanically ventilated will form a TOF secondary to cuff-related trauma. As the mechanism of injury stems from pressure necrosis from the cuff, tracheostomies do not reduce the incidence of acquired TOF compared to endotracheal tubes, given the similar mechanism of injury. Other aetiologies of TOF in the setting of ...
