Pancoast tumour: current therapeutic options.

Clin Ter 2019 Jul-Aug;170(4):e291-e294

Department of Surgical, Oncological and Stomatological Disciplines, University of Palermo.

Background: Pancoast's syndrome is caused by malignant neoplasm of superior sulcus of the lung which produces destructive lesions of thoracic inlet and comes along with the involvement of brachial plexus and stellate ganglion. Computed tomography (CT) or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans can detect early lesions otherwise missed by routine radiographs and can also define the local extent or metastatic progression of the disease. Protocols involving combinations of irradiation, chemotherapy, and surgery are currently being under investigation to determine the best management. Read More

The new 8th TNM staging system of lung cancer and its potential imaging interpretation pitfalls and limitations with CT image demonstrations.

Diagn Interv Radiol 2019 Jul;25(4):270-279

Department of Radiology, China Medical University Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan;School of Chinese Medicine, China Medical University, Taichung, Taiwan.

The tumor, node, metastasis (TNM) staging system approved by International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) and the American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) to stage lung cancer was recently revised. The latest revision is the 8th edition published in January, 2017. This new edition made some important changes to the previous edition, including modification of the T classification based on 1 cm increment, downstage of T descriptor including endobronchial tumor disregarding its distance from carina (T2), merging total and partial atelectasis/pneumonitis into the same T category (T2), upstage diaphragmatic invasion to T4, new classification concept of adenocarcinoma in situ and minimally invasive adenocarcinoma for pure and part-solid ground-glass nodules, and further division of extrathoracic metastasis into M1b and M1c based on the number and sites of extrathoracic metastases.

Clin Transl Radiat Oncol 2019 Feb 6;15:83-92. Epub 2019 Jan 6.

Department of Radiation Oncology, University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, TX 77030, USA.

Introduction: Target delineation variability is a significant technical impediment in multi-institutional trials which employ intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), as there is a real potential for clinically meaningful variances that can impact the outcomes in clinical trials. The goal of this study is to determine the variability of target delineation among participants from different institutions as part of Southwest Oncology Group (SWOG) Radiotherapy Committee's multi-institutional quality assurance study in patients with Pancoast tumors as a "dry run" for trial implementation.

Methods: CT simulation scans were acquired from four patients with Pancoast tumor. Read More

The anterior transcervical-thoracic approach clearly exposes the subclavian vessels and brachial plexus. We believe that this approach is optimal when a superior sulcus tumor (SST) invades the anterior part of the thoracic inlet. However, this approach is not yet widely applied because anatomical relationships in this procedure are difficult to visualize. Read More

Superior sulcus (Pancoast) tumors: current evidence on diagnosis and radical treatment.

J Thorac Dis 2013 Sep;5 Suppl 4:S342-58

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, AHEPA University Hospital, Aristotle University Medical School, Thessaloniki, Greece;

Pancoast tumors account for less than 5% of all bronchogenic carcinomas. These tumors are located in the apex of the lung and involve through tissue contiguity the apical chest wall and/or the structures of the thoracic inlet. The tumors become clinically evident with the characteristic symptoms of the "Pancoast-Tobias syndrome" which includes Claude-Bernard-Horner syndrome, severe pain in the shoulder radiating toward the axilla and/or scapula and along the ulnar distribution of the upper arm, atrophy of hand and arm muscles and obstruction of the subclavian vein resulting in edema of the upper arm.

Chest 2013 May;143(5 Suppl):e369S-e399S

Department of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA. Electronic address:

Background: This guideline updates the second edition and addresses patients with particular forms of non-small cell lung cancer that require special considerations, including Pancoast tumors, T4 N0,1 M0 tumors, additional nodules in the same lobe (T3), ipsilateral different lobe (T4) or contralateral lung (M1a), synchronous and metachronous second primary lung cancers, solitary brain and adrenal metastases, and chest wall involvement.

Methods: The nature of these special clinical cases is such that in most cases, meta-analyses or large prospective studies of patients are not available. To ensure that these guidelines were supported by the most current data available, publications appropriate to the topics covered in this article were obtained by performing a literature search of the MEDLINE computerized database.

Cases presenting to orthopedists with manifestations of lung cancer on skeletal radiographs.

Eur J Orthop Surg Traumatol 2013 Apr 4;23(3):273-9. Epub 2012 Apr 4.

Department of Radiotherapy, Fukuroi Municipal Hospital, 2515-1 Kunou, Fukuroi, Shizuoka, Japan.

The value of cervical spine or shoulder radiography has been established for the detection of Pancoast tumors. However, for the detection of lung cancers other than Pancoast tumors, the value of these skeletal radiographies has not been assessed. The aim of our study was to determine how many patients first presented to orthopedists with manifestations of lung cancer on skeletal radiographs and to present several cases for illustration.

Cubital tunnel syndrome - a review and management guidelines.

Cent Eur Neurosurg 2011 May 4;72(2):90-8. Epub 2011 May 4.

Praxis für, periphere Neurochirurgie, Dossenheim, Germany.

Cubital tunnel syndrome (CuTS) is the second most common peripheral nerve compression syndrome. In German-speaking countries, cubital tunnel syndrome is often referred to as sulcus ulnaris syndrome (retrocondylar groove syndrome). This term is anatomically incorrect, since the site of compression comprises not only the retrocondylar groove but the cubital tunnel, which consists of 3 parts: the retrocondylar groove, partially covered by the cubital tunnel retinaculum (lig.

Routine use of staging thoracoscopy for pancoast tumors without overt radiographic chest wall invasion.

Surg Laparosc Endosc Percutan Tech 2011 Apr;21(2):111-5

Division of Thoracic and Esophageal Surgery, Department of Surgery, University Hospitals Case Medical Center, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, OH 44106, USA.

A retrospective review was performed of all patients with upper lobe non-small cell lung cancers to assess the use of thoracoscopy in determining chest wall invasion in patients with lung cancers abutting the first rib, but without overt radiographic invasion. Of the 12 patients with tumors abutting the first rib without overt radiographic invasion, thoracoscopy was able to correctly determine chest wall invasion in 8 patients. There was no significant morbidity related to thoracoscopy. Read More
