Behind The Façade: Robotic-Assisted Resection of a Diaphragmatic Osteochondroma

Publication date: Available online 2 December 2019Source: The Annals of Thoracic SurgeryAuthor(s): Sudharsan Madhavan, Fazuludeen A. Akbar, Khoon Leong Chuah, Aneez D.B. AhmedAbstractNeoplasms arising from the diaphragms are not typically seen in clinical practise, though they may inflict significant morbidity and mortality. In the realm of thoracic surgery, osteochondromas are only encountered at the thoracic wall or vertebra. We herein, describe the first ever case of an osteochondroma arising from the diaphragm masquerading as a malignant lesion. The tumour was resected via the robotic-assisted means and the patient was discharged with no complications.

AbstractOsteochondroma is a benign bone tumour which is rarely appreciated in the oral and maxillofacial region. This case report illustrates on a 42 ‐year‐old male with osteochondroma affecting his left mandibular condyle and presenting with Temporo‐Mandibular Dysfunction‐related symptoms. The authors of this paper hope to emphasize the need for vigilance and the value of using modern imaging techniques in the diagnostic work‐up for pa in associated with the temporo‐mandibular joint.

Osteochondromas are benign bone tumors that rarely involve the pubic symphysis. This case report describes a 41-year-old woman with a pubic symphyseal osteochondroma associated with an aberrantly placed single incision sling. After an outside surgeon placed a single incision midurethral sling for stress urinary incontinence, she developed pelvic pain, dyspareunia and vaginal mesh sling exposure. Imaging demonstrated a 2.6 centimeter calcified mass posterior to the pubic symphysis. The patient underwent excision of the mass and the eroded mesh sling via vaginal and abdominal approaches. Pathology demonstrated osteochondroma...

Osteochondroma, also known as osteocartilaginous exostosis, is a rare exophytic lesion that arises from the cortex of the bone and is capped with cartilage. A 28-year-old woman presented with a 10-month history of increasing dentofacial asymmetry. Clinical examination revealed the left border of the mandible more inferiorly placed compared with the other side, with deviation of her chin pointing to the right. Computerized tomography demonstrated a bony outgrowth present between the head of the left condyle and the glenoid fossa, with a maximum anteroposterior dimension of 3 cm.

AbstractAccording to the WHO, mesenchymal tumours of the maxillofacial bones are subdivided in benign and malignant maxillofacial bone and cartilage tumours, fibro-osseous and osteochondromatous lesions as well as giant cell lesions and bone cysts. The histology always needs to be evaluated considering also the clinical and radiological context which remains an important cornerstone in the classification of these lesions. Nevertheless, the diagnosis of maxillofacial bone tumours is often challenging for radiologists as well as pathologists, while an accurate diagnosis is essential for adequate clinical decision-making. The...

Rationale: Giant synovial osteochondromatosis of the thigh is a highly unusual disease without standard diagnosis and curative managements so far. Our focus is to report a very rare case of giant synovial osteochondromatosis successfully operated by surgical treatment. The management of these unique cases has certain educational significance in clinical practice. Patient concerns: A 63-year-old previously healthy man presented to our institution with a 4-year history of continuous progressive hip pain and local numbness of right side in January 2018. One month ago, the patient felt that the above symptoms were aggrava...
