Sustained expression of steroid receptor coactivator SRC-2/TIF-2 is associated with better prognosis in malignant pleural mesothelioma.
Estrogen receptor beta (ERβ) overexpression by malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) tumor cells correlates with enhanced patient survival. ER-regulated transcription is mediated by the p160 family of steroid receptor coactivators (SRCs), and SRC isoform overexpression is associated...
Volumetry: an alternative to assess therapy response for malignant pleural mesothelioma?
The purpose of our study was to assess robustness of volumetric measurement of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) before and after chemotherapy to modified RECIST (response evaluation criteria in solid tumours) criteria. 30 patients with digitally available chest computed tomograph...
Preface. Thoracic anatomy: pleura and pleural spaces, mediastinum, diaphragm, and esophagus.
Pleural controversy: aetiology of pneumothorax.
Pneumothoraces are classified as spontaneous, traumatic and iatrogenic. Spontaneous pneumothoraces that occur without recognized lung disease are termed primary spontaneous pneumothoraces (PSP), whereas those that occur due to an underlying lung disease are termed secondary spontaneo...

Guidelines for treatment of thymoma are prevalent in US literature, and many have been published by organizations in the United Kingdom, Canada, and Japan. This article reviews these many guidelines and summarizes them for the reader. Copyright © 2011 Elsevier Inc. A...
Ectopic thymoma presenting as a giant intrathoracic tumor: a case report.
We report a case of ectopic thymoma presenting as a giant right intrathoracic tumor that was treated with resection. The patient was a 50-year-old Japanese woman who presented with the chief complaint of chest pain. Detailed examination revealed a solid tumor measuring 15 × 10 × 8 cm in diameter,...
Brachial plexus injuries complicating video-assisted thoracic surgery.
Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is a less-invasive alternative to open thoracotomy. According to evidence-based medicine methodology, VATS is associated with better outcomes and the same complication rate as open thoracotomy. Two women (19 and 21 years old) und...

[Case of benign asbestos pleurisy with diffuse pleural thickening confirmed on autopsy].
We report a 65-year-old man with a 35-year history of occupational asbestos exposure. He presented at a nearby hospital with a complaint of dyspnea in 2002. Bilateral pleural effusion was revealed on a chest x-ray film. Chest CT revealed diffuse thickening of the pleura, bilateral pleural effusions...
[The postoperative management of patients after pluropneumonectomy--influence of the mode of the operation].
We studied how these changes had affected postoperative management of patients after pleuropneumonectomy. We retrospectively reviewed 22 patients who had undergone pleuropneumonectomy for malignant pleural mesothelioma from 2001 to 2008. They were divided into two groups; those before 2003 (n = 6) a...
