1/41. Stomal recurrence invading the cervicothoracic esophagus and upper mediastinum: resectability and the creation of a safe anterior mediastinal tracheostoma.

    Surgical salvage for stomal recurrence is a for midable problem for head and neck surgeons. The two factors of considerable significance are resectability and establishment of a safe anterior mediastinal tracheostoma. A case of stomal recurrence invading the cervicothoracic esophagus and upper mediastinum is presented. Total esophagectomy and upper mediastinal dissection was performed. The esophagus was reconstructed immediately with a pedicled gastric flap. The omentum on the gastric pedicle was wrapped around the trachea to reduce the likelihood of erosion into the great vessels and to supplement the lateral blood supply to the trachea. No serious postoperative complications were observed. We believe that the total esophagectomy improved the resectability, and that the bulk of the gastric pedicle and the use of the omentum prevented significant postoperative complications associated with an anterior mediastinal tracheostoma.

2/41. Periesophageal mediastinal fibromatosis.

    We report two cases of aggressive fibromatosis of the mediastinum with esophageal involvement in adults. CT showed the posterior mediastinal mass involving the esophagus. In both cases, surgical resection was not feasible. Histopathologic examination showed a fibrous tissue. The patients died two years later.

3/41. Oesophageal leiomyoma presenting as a mediastinal mass.

    A 28 year old male presented with complaints of retrosternal pain, discomfort and dysphagia of 4 years duration. barium swallow and oesophagoscopy were suggestive of extrinsic compression of thoracic oesophagus. CT scan of chest was suggestive of a large mediastinal lymph node mass. thoracotomy and open biopsy showed a benign mesenchymal tumor on frozen section. A transthoracic oesophagectomy with gastric pull up and cervical oesophago-gastric anastomosis was performed. The postoperative course was uneventful and the patient discharged on the tenth postoperative day.

4/41. A mediastinal hemangioma, associated with perirenal hemangioma and congenital anomaly of the inferior vena cava.

    In a 40-year-old man, a mediastinal hemangioma was discovered intially as a compression of the esophagus by upper gastrointestinal endoscopy. Furthermore, perirenal hemangioma and inferior vena cava (IVC) malformation were stimultaneously found. Hemangiomas, which occur in the mediastinal and perirenal area, are extremely uncommon and congenital IVC malformation, like the present case, has not been reported. We review the literature of these vascular abnormalities.

5/41. Dysphagia caused by a fetus-in-fetu in a 27-year-old man.

    Mechanical obstruction of the distal esophagus by a fetus-in-fetu is an extremely rare condition that has not been previously reported. We present the case of a 27-year-old man who presented with dysphagia caused by fetus-in-fetu contained within a retroperitoneal cystic cavity. The tumor, noticed since childhood, did not cause any symptoms until a year before presentation when symptoms of dysphagia developed. We propose including this entity in the differential diagnosis of a retroperitoneal mass.

6/41. A case of isolated esophageal cyst in the posterior mediastinum.

    We report a rare case of posterior mediastinal esophageal cyst associated with pulmonary anomaly that had no connection with the proper esophagus, on either CT or MRI, and suggest including this entity in the differential diagnosis of posterior mediastinal masses.

7/41. Primary leiomyosarcoma of the anterior mediastinum.

    Primary mediastinal leiomyosarcoma are extremely rare tumors, which develop from smooth muscle, usually in the esophagus or main vessels. Very few cases have been reported in the literature and only two of these developed from small vessels in the soft tissue of the anterior mediastinum. We report on a 45-year-old man who presented with a huge anterior mediastinal tumor. The tumor was surgically removed with right thoracotomy and the diagnosis of well-differentiated leiomyosarcoma was established. It probably originated from the anterior mediastinal tissue, so at operation a continuity was not found between the tumor and neighboring structures. This rare and interesting histopathology is discussed and the literature is reviewed.

8/41. A large mediastinal tumor with spontaneous regression 30 years after esophageal bypass surgery.

    We describe the case of an 80-year-old man admitted to the hospital for the first time with chest pain and progressive respiratory difficulty. Radiographic findings of the chest showed a large, cystic mediastinal mass from the jugulum to the diaphragm. The patient's history revealed bypass operation for a benign esophageal stricture 30 years ago. During the hospital stay, clinical symptoms resolved within 48 hours without specific treatment. Seven days after admission a chest roentgenogram showed almost complete regression of the tumor, which was supposed to be a mucocele of the colon bypassing the esophagus.

9/41. Spontaneous expulsion of a mediastinal lymph node in carcinoma of the esophagus.

    A case of spontaneous expulsion of a mediastinal lymph node, which developed during the follow up of a patient with carcinoma of the esophagus is presented. To the best of our knowledge, no such instance of natural extrusion of mediastinal lymph node has been reported in the literature.

10/41. Giant cystic lymphangioma of the middle mediastinum.

    A middle-aged male presenting with complaint of progressively increasing dysphagia was found to have a large cystic mass lesion in the middle mediastinum on evaluation. A diagnosis of an endo-duplication cyst was considered after exploration, in view of infiltration of the muscular layer of the lower thoracic esophagus, presence of multiple hyperemic nodular lesions on its inner surface and its location in the middle mediastinum. However, the histopathology revealed the lesion to be a cystic lymphangioma.
