Transcript

  • 1. MEDIASTINAL MASSES
  • 2. Mediastinal Anatomy
  • 3. Mediastinal Anatomy Anterior thymus, aorta, great veins, lymphatics Middle heart, pericardium, trachea Posterior Esophagus, vagus nerves, thoracic duct, sympathetic chain, azygous venous system
  • 4. Anterior Mediastinum
  • 5. Thymoma
  • 6. Thymoma
  • 7. Hodgkin’s
  • 8. Intrathoracic goiter
  • 9. Anterior Mediastinum Other thymic tumors - carcinomas, carcinoid tumors, lipomas, cysts Germ cell tumors Thyroid tumors Parathyroid adenoma Connective tissue tumors - lipomas, liposarcomas, lymphangiomas, hemangiomas
  • 10. Middle Mediastinum
  • 11. Pericardial cyst
  • 12. Bronchogenic cyst
  • 13. Middle Mediastinum Thyroid tumor or goiter Tracheal tumors Lymphadenopathy 2/2 infection malignancy idiopathic
  • 14. Posterior Mediastinum
  • 15. Posterior Mediastinum Most neurogenic tumors Esophageal tumors Hiatus hernia Neurenteric cysts Unusual: pancreatic pseudocyst, achalasia, extramedullary hematopoiesis
  • 16. Paraspinal ganglioneuroma
  • 17. Paraspinal neurilemmoma
  • 18. Notes Aortic aneurysms can be located in any compartment Anterior masses more likely to be malignant 59% vs. 29% vs. 16%, converse is true in children increased likelihood in 20-40 yo Most common lesions: Children - neurogenic tumors, enterogenous cysts Adults - neurogenic tumors, thymomas, thymic cysts
  • 19. Signs & Symptoms Hemoptysis, recurrent pulmonary infection (airway compression) Dysphagia (esophageal compression) Paralysis (spinal column involvement) Elevated hemidiaphragm (phrenic nerve damage) Hoarseness (recurrent laryngeal involvement) Horner’s & SVC syndrome (sympathetic ganglion, SVC)
  • 20. Signs & Symptoms Associated systemic diseases Thymoma = myasthenia gravis, immune deficiency, red cell aplastic anemia Thymic carcinoid tumor = Cushing syndrome Goiter = thyrotoxicosis Parathyroid adenoma = hyperparathyroidism
  • 21. Imaging CXR -> CT with IV contrast MRI only recommended if pt has contrast allergy or renal failure useful for neurogenic tumors Transesophageal US - posterior lymph nodes Radionuclide scanning 123-I for thyroid, sestamibi for parathyroid, gallium for lymphomas (replaced by FDG-PET)
  • 22. Labs Goiter -> TFTs Parathyroid adenoma -> Ca, P, PTH Paragangliomas -> urine metanephrines, catecholamines Neurogenic tumors -> homovanillic acid, vanillylmandelic acid Germ cell tumor -> AFP, B-HCG all male pts with anterior mass
  • 23. Management Excision if likely benign - teratoma, thymoma needle aspiration, VATS, sternotomy/thoracotomy Biopsy lymphoma, germ cell, unresectable malignancy surgical biopsy preferred over needle aspiration Chest wall tumor implantation is a rare complication
  • 24. Complications Surgical treatment has increased risk of morbidity 2/2 central airway obstruction, greatest in those with: Cardiorespiratory symptoms Evidence of tracheal obstruction Mixed obstructive & restrictive PFTs
  • 25. The End
