Radiation therapy had been administered for breast cancer in 8 patients and for lung cancer in 1 patient. Symptoms were detected in 8 patients; however, none of the patients developed hypoxemia or respiratory failure, and the clinical course was good. Steroid therapy was administered to 3 patients; however, all 3 p...

Authors: Shen M, Cai L, Jiang K, Xu W, Chen Y, Xu Z Abstract Lung cancer represents a major healthy concern due to high incidence and morality. Increasing evidences showed critical regulatory role of microRNA (miR) in cell growth, differentiation and apoptosis. It has been indicated that the level of miR-328 is abnormally up regulated in lung cancer cell line, which is correlated with cell apoptosis. An in vitro lung cancer model was established through induction of chlamydia pneumonia. Western blot and real-time quantitative PCR were used to measure miR-328 level and its effects on histone H2AX expression. Bioinfo...

AbstractPurposeSeveral vascular measurements in computed tomography (CT) were reported to be indicators of pulmonary hypertension in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients. We evaluated the usefulness of these parameters as predictors of postoperative mortality in lung cancer patients with IIP.MethodsThis retrospective study was performed on 1888 patients. The following CT findings were evaluated: diameter of the main pulmonary artery, ascending aorta, and the short axis of the inferior vena cava (IVC). Univariate and multivariate analyses were conducted to determine predictors of surgical mortality.ResultsI...

Publication date: Available online 15 December 2018Source: Respiratory Medicine Case ReportsAuthor(s): Keigo Okamoto, Jun HanaokaAbstractCombined subsegmentectomy (CSS) is procedure as diagnostic purpose adding sufficient surgical margin. Compared to other procedure, CSS is not common, with the surgical results also being controversial. We analyzed the patients who had undergoing CSS in the right upper lobe for ground glass opacity (GGO) -dominant nodules. Between April 2011 and March 2017, we experienced 7 cases underwent CSS. In all cases, three subsegments resection and lymph node dissection using Video-Assisted Thoraci...

Central airway obstruction (CAO) is critical and life ‐threatening for cancer patients and is categorized as an oncological emergency that requires urgent intervention. Malignant carinal involvement is considered one of the most difficult situations among CAO, which is usually treated by rigid bronchoscopic intervention under general anaesthesia. The application of ‘side‐by‐side’ method of bilateral self‐expandable metallic stents has been reported in the management of malignant carinal involvement. This technique is useful in the treatment of patients of poor performance status who would not tolerate g...
