Laparoscopic approach in the treatment of Morgagni hernia.

Turk Gogus Kalp Damar Cerrahisi Derg 2020 Jul 28;28(3):514-520. Epub 2020 Jul 28.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Atatürk University, Faculty of Medicine, Erzurum, Turkey.

Background: In this study, we aimed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of primary laparoscopic repair of Morgagni hernia.

Methods: In this retrospective study, a total of 12 patients (4 males, 8 females; mean age 56.5±14.9 years; range, 32 to 80 years) who underwent primary laparoscopic repair for Morgagni hernia between January 2014 and December 2019 were included. In all cases, the hernia sac was excised and the defect was repaired primarily with non-absorbable sutures.

Results: All patients had excellent outcomes and were uneventfully discharged from the hospital after a mean length of hospital stay of 4.6±1.3 days (range, 3 to 7 days). No mortality, morbidity or recurrence were observed in any of the patients.

Conclusion: The primary laparoscopic repair is an effective and safe approach to surgical repair for Morgagni hernia in experienced hands.

Can tissue elemental analysis be used to differentiate sarcoidosis and tuberculous lymphadenitis?

Tuberk Toraks 2020 Jul;68(2):126-134

Department of Chest Diseases, Faculty of Medicine, Atatürk University, Erzurum, Turkey.

Introduction: Sarcoidosis and tuberculous lymphadenitis are granulomatous inflammatory diseases. Differentiating lymph node involvement in these two diseases can be challenging. This study evaluated whether elemental analysis of tissue samples could facilitate the differentiation of these histopathologically and clinically similar diseases.

Materials And Methods: A total of 152 tissue samples were included: 57 caseating granulomatous inflammation, 58 non-caseating granulomatous inflammation, and 37 reactive lymph node specimens. The tissue samples were analyzed for calcium, magnesium, iron, copper, zinc, chrome, molybdenum, nickel and selenium with inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES).

Result: Comparison of element levels in the three groups revealed that caseating granulomatous inflammation had higher calcium content (662.6 ± 4.6 ppm, p< 0.001) and lower iron content (48.7 ± 83 ppm, p< 0.001) compared to non-caseating granulomatous inflammation. Compared to reactive lymph tissue, caseating granulomatous inflammation had higher calcium and lower iron and magnesium content while non-caseating granulomatous inflammation had higher levels of iron and lower magnesium; however, these differences were not statistically significant. In caseating granulomatous inflammation, a calcium cut-off value of 207 ppm yielded 85% specificity and 63% sensitivity. For iron, a cut-off value of 51 ppm had 74% specificity and 58% sensitivity.

Conclusions: High calcium and low iron levels in lymph tissue may be suggestive of caseating granulomatous inflammation and tuberculosis. In cases where differentiating between sarcoidosis and tuberculous lymphadenitis is difficult, performing tissue elemental analysis may provide additional supportive evidence for differential diagnosis.

Pulmonary metastasectomy with laparotomy in alveolar echinococcosis.

Turk Gogus Kalp Damar Cerrahisi Derg 2019 Oct 23;27(4):593-596. Epub 2019 Oct 23.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Atatürk University, Faculty of Medicine, Erzurum, Turkey.

Pulmonary alveolar echinococcosis is a tumor-like parasitic disease that occurs typically after hepatic involvement. In this article, we present a case of metastatic pulmonary alveolar echinococcosis that underwent laparotomy for hepatic involvement, in which we performed pulmonary metastasectomy with transdiaphragmatic intervention. Thoracic computed tomography revealed a metastatic nodule of approximately 1 cm in the superior segment of the right lung lower lobe. Approximately 7x3 cm diaphragmatic resection was performed due to diaphragmatic invasion. Pulmonary wedge resection for lung metastasis was performed intraabdominally from diaphragmatic defect. We believe that this technique can be applied safely in carefully selected patients with pulmonary involvement.

The diagnostic value of fiberoptic bronchoscopy in ruptured lung hydatid cysts.

Turk Gogus Kalp Damar Cerrahisi Derg 2019 Jul 25;27(3):350-354. Epub 2019 Jun 25.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Atatürk University Faculty of Medicine, Erzurum, Turkey.

Background: This study aims to evaluate the diagnostic yield of fiberoptic bronchoscopy in ruptured pulmonary hydatid cysts indistinguishable from pulmonary masses on imaging techniques.

Methods: Between January 2000 and January 2018, a total of 45 consecutive patients (27 males, 18 females; mean age 46.4±13.5 years; range, 23 to 78 years) who underwent fiberoptic bronchoscopy to establish the definitive diagnosis following radio-diagnostic procedures were retrospectively analyzed. Data including demographic and clinical characteristics of the patients, preoperative diagnostic studies, bronchoscopic findings, and postoperative diagnosis were recorded.

Results: Endobronchial hyperemia (n=42) and purulent secretion (n=34) are the most common findings of bronchoscopy. The most specific finding was the presence of pieces of cystic membranes in 23 patients. Scolices were seen in five patients in bronchial aspirate. In one patient, both pieces of cystic membranes and scolices in bronchial aspirate were detected. The preliminary diagnosis of a hydatid cyst was made based on these findings in 28 patients (62.2%) preoperatively. The definitive diagnosis of a hydatid cyst was confirmed through thoracotomy in all patients.

Conclusion: Bronchoscopy is a particularly valuable method in the definitive diagnosis of ruptured lung hydatid cysts. The definite diagnosis is based on the visualization of the endobronchial membrane during bronchoscopy or scolices in the bronchial aspirate. It can be also used to prevent complications such as bronchial dissemination and asphyxia due to intra-bronchial membrane pieces.

An Unusual Cause of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension: Hydatid Cyst.

Ann Thorac Surg 2020 04 28;109(4):e267-e269. Epub 2019 Aug 28.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Ataturk University, Erzurum, Turkey.

Hydatid cyst is an important health problem throughout the world, and it is caused by the larval form of Echinococcus granulosus. Although it is most commonly located in the liver and lungs, hydatid cyst can also affect other organs because the oncospheres spread through the bloodstream. The disease may have many different clinical presentations. Although it is a benign disease, sometimes it can cause serious morbidity and even mortality. Here, the case of a 33-year-old male patient who underwent surgery for a right ventricle and bilateral lung hydatid cyst 9 years ago and had pulmonary hypertension is presented.

Relevance of Pulmonary Alveolar Echinococcosis.

Arch Bronconeumol 2020 12 14;56(12):779-783. Epub 2019 Aug 14.

Ataturk University, Medical Faculty, Department of Thoracic Surgery, Erzurum, Turkey.

Background: Pulmonary alveolar echinococcosis (PAE) is a chronic disease caused by Echinococcus multilocularis with very low incidence in developed countries.

Methods: This single-center, retrospective study included 34 patients who were diagnosed with PAE between January 2001 and February 2019 (15 males, 19 females, mean age: 52.4±15.8 years, age range: 28-78 years) in Ataturk University Medical School, Erzurum, Turkey.

Results: The liver was the primary involved organ in all cases. Pulmonary involvement was detected in 13.0% (34/261) of all cases with hepatic alveolar echinococcosis (AE), and three patients (8.8%) had both pulmonary metastasis and brain metastasis. The route of spread to the lungs based on radiological data was hematogeneous in 25 patients (73.5%), transdiaphragmatic in three patients (8.8%) and both hematogeneous and transdiaphragmatic in six patients (17.7%). AE showed bilateral involvement in 19 patients (55.9%), whereas only the right lung was involved in 12 patients (35.3%) and the left lung in three patients (8.8%). Of the patients, five underwent surgery due to PAE and 29 patients received medical therapy with albendazole. A total of three patients died during the follow-up period (2, 5 and 10 years after the diagnosis of PAE), while 31 patients continued with follow-up and treatment for a mean duration of 5.4±3.8 years (1-14 years).

Conclusions: Patients with hepatic AE must, as a matter of course, be screened for possible lung involvement. Albendazole therapy may slow down disease progression in patients with widespread pulmonary involvement who are not eligible for surgery.

No Benefits of Combining Proximal Row Carpectomy With PIN Neurectomy for Wrist Disorders-A Comparative Study With Systematic Review of the Literature.

Plast Surg (Oakv) 2019 May 21;27(2):130-134. Epub 2019 Feb 21.

Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology, Ataturk Training and Research Hospital, Katip Celebi University, Izmir, Turkey.

Background: Posterior interosseous nerve (PIN) resection in combination with proximal row carpectomy (PRC), is a preferred method in order to obtain rapid recovery. However, the contribution of such combination to results isn't known well.

Objectives: We performed a comparative study to evaluate the effects of PIN neurectomy for PRC and a systematic review of the literature was performed to identify whether such combination has an advantage.

Methods: Patients with wrist diseases who underwent PRC were evaluated retrospectively. Patients without PIN neurectomy (group 1, n = 7) and with PIN neurectomy (group 2, n = 8) were compared in respect of mean age, follow-up, gender, Q-DASH, VAS, MAYO wrist scores, flexion-extension/radial-ulnar deviation range of motion at final follow-up. The MEDLINE database was searched for studies published between 2005 and 2015, as the second part of the study. The following keywords were used: "proximal," "row," "carpectomy." Studies, which met the inclusion criteria, were evaluated in terms of such combination.

Results: There were no significant difference between the groups in regard with age ( = .463), follow-up period ( = .728), the ranges of flexion-extension ( = .431) and radio-ulnar deviation ( = .689), Q-DASH ( = .452), and MAYO scores ( = .728). In the second part of the study, 12 studies met the inclusion criteria and none of them was specifically evaluating such combination. Only one study had specific comments on PRC with PIN neurectomy.

Conclusion: According to our study (which, to our knowledge, was the first comparative study in the literature), we advocate not to combine PRC with PIN neurectomy for such an approach has no advantage.

The effect of surgical specimen-derived phosphorus and lead concentrations in non small cell lung cancer patients on disease course.

Tuberk Toraks 2018 Dec;66(4):334-339

Department of Chest Diseases, Faculty of Medicine, Ataturk University, Erzurum, Turkey.

Introduction: Lung cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer-related mortality. There are many exogenic and endogenic factors associated with the development of lung cancer. One of these factors is trace elements. Under- or overabundance of trace elements can disrupt cellular functions and lead to the formation of cancer. In this study we conducted elemental analysis of lung cancer tissue and normal lung tissue to investigate the role of tissue trace element concentrations in lung cancer.

Materials And Methods: Elemental analysis was performed on 30 lung cancer tissue samples and a control group of 15 normal lung tissue samples, all taken from patients diagnosed, treated and followed at our hospital between 2005 and 2010. The solubilized tissue samples were analyzed for the presence of 19 elements using inductively coupled plasma-optical emission spectroscopy (ICP-OES). Total element amounts in the tissue were calculated.

Result: Concentrations of magnesium, potassium, zinc, manganese, lead, boron, chromium and phosphorus were significantly higher in the patient group compared to the control group. Deceased patients had significantly lower phosphorus concentrations and significantly higher lead concentrations than the other patients.

Conclusions: Elevated levels of magnesium, potassium, zinc, manganese, lead, boron, chromium and phosphorus in lung cancer tissue indicate that these elements may play a role in the development of lung cancer. The results of our evaluation of the association between trace elements and lung cancer suggest that, together with other factors, low phosphorus concentration and high lead concentration in tumor tissue may influence disease course.

Erector Spinae Plane Block Catheter Insertion under Ultrasound Guidance for Thoracic Surgery: Case Series of Three Patients.

Eurasian J Med 2018 Oct;50(3):204-206

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Atatürk University School of Medicine, Erzurum, Turkey.

The erector spinae plane (ESP) block is a novel plane block first reported for thoracic analgesia. It affects the dorsal and ventral rami of the thoracic nerves. Owing to the ease of the technique and decreased risk of complication of the ESP block under ultrasound guidance, it can be a preferable procedure compared with other invasive techniques, such as neuraxial and nerve blocks. In this case report, we presented three patients who had thoracic surgery under general anesthesia. The ESP block and catheter placement was applied to the patients before operation. The catheter was inserted deep into the erector spinae muscle and was used successfully for postoperative pain management.
