Abstract Intracavitary cardiac metastasis is a rare manifestation of primary lung cancer which can be associated with a very poor prognosis. In this condition, the right chambers of the heart are more commonly involved and the invasion of the left atrium (LA) through the venous routes is highly exceptional. Poorly differentiated large-cell neuroendocrine tumors also include only 3% of all primary lung carcinomas which can have adverse outcomes. Therefore, in this report, a rare case of a 72-year-old male patient with poorly differentiated large-cell neuroendocrine carcinoma of the right lung spreading to the LA th...

In this report, both patients had lung mass accompanied by cough that lasted for>2 weeks, and were admitted to hospital for further diagnosis and treatment to clarify the nature of the mass. To make a definite diagnosis, EBUS-TBNA examination was performed under general anesthesia. Both patients had no salient past history. Diagnosis: Case 1 was diagnosed as tumor or pneumonia based on the right lung shadow. Case 2 was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of the right lung with right hilar lymph node metastasis. The diagnostic results of both patients were based on pathological examination of tissues obtained by EB...

Authors: Liang J, Wang D, Li H, Zhao S, Chen M, Li H, Ding Z, Liu J, Liu L Abstract Two-dimensional ultrasound (US) and color doppler flow imaging are associated with certain limitations in the preprocedural evaluation and design of the puncture path for biopsies of thoracic lesions, such as a poorly defined boundary between the tumor and the atelectatic lesions in central lung cancer with atelectasis. Contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) can be valuable in the preoperative evaluation of the biopsy site and in increasing the accuracy of the biopsy. The present study investigated the value of clinical application of ...

CONCLUSION:  In selected patients, neoadjuvant therapy with ICI is well tolerated and can induce a complete remission of the tumor. Treatment with ICI has no negative impact on the surgical procedure. Prognosis seems to be promising in CPR and limited in PPR. PMID: 32820489 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study aimed to compare the challenge of puncture and catheterization and the effect of postoperative analgesia of ultrasound-guided continuous thoracic paravertebral block and the continuous epidural analgesia in patients receiving thoracoscopic surgery for lung cancer.MethodsOne-hundred and fifty patients received elective unilateral thoracoscopic surgery for lung cancer and were randomized  into three groups; test group 1 (T group), test group 2 (P group), and the control group (E group). Both of the test groups received ultrasound-guided continuous thoracic paravertebral block (TPVB) while the contro...

We present 2 cases of EUS-B-guided aspiration of malignant pericardial effusion performed in the same setting as bronchoscopy and endobronchial ultrasound. No complications were observed. We conclude that EUS-B-FNA may be safe and efficacious in the evaluation of pericardial effusion during lung cancer workup. Thus, EUS-B-FNA may save time in the diagnostic workup, improve cancer staging, and prevent transthoracic pericardiocentesis.Respiration

Conclusion: Usually, bladder duplication is diagnosed by ultrasound or Intra Venous Urography (IVU) . To our knowledge this was the first documented case of an incomplete bladder duplication discovered by SPECT/CT. PMID: 32709675 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
