    Background: Preoperative embolization of tumors is a well-established procedure that has been successfully applied in various clinical situations. Preoperative embolization can reduce the vascularity of tumors resulting in a clearer operative field, less difficult dissection, decreased blood...

    Resection of giant thoracic schwannomas is challenging and usually requires a staged approach. The resection of the intraspinal component, usually via laminectomy, is done in one sitting and the intrathoracic component, via thoracotomy, follows at another. We describe the complete resection of a...

    Thymoma is an epithelial neoplasm of the thymus, which commonly lies in the anterior mediastinum and, therefore, an intrathoracic origin is considered to be rare. This report presents a case of giant thymoma arising in the thoracic cavity. A 61-year-old male presented with a chronic cough and...

    Benign mediastinal teratoma accounts for 60% of all mediastinal germ cell tumors, which in turn account for 15–20% of all anterior mediastinal masses. It is frequently associated with compressive effects of surrounding structures. Total surgical excision is curative and life saving also....

    Primary chest wall tumors are relatively rare and represent approximately 5% of all thoracic neoplasms. Malignant peripheral nerve sheath tumor (MPNST) is highly aggressive and occurs in the second or third decade of patients with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1). The estimated incidence of MPNST...

    Objective: Thoracic dumb-bell tumors are rare, usually benign tumors in the posterior mediastinum, consisting of intrathoracic and intraspinal parts. Surgical removal is the treatment of choice, performed by two teams – neurosurgeons and thoracic surgeons operating in a prescribed order....

    A primary giant cell tumor of the rib is very rare. The most common site of a giant cell tumor arising from the rib is the posterior arc. A giant cell tumor arising from the anterior arc of the rib is extremely rare. The treatment of a giant cell tumor of the rib is not well defined. Generally,...
