      P1.14-08 - The Usefulness of the Hemiclamshell Thoracotomy in Thoracic Surgery (ID 13663)

      16:45 - 18:00  |  Author(s): Masaya Nakamura

      • Abstract

      Background

      The antero-lateral approach provides good exposure of the cervicothoracic region and enables removal of lesions that develop in this complex anatomic area.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      We retrospectively evaluated the indications and outcomes of the hemiclamshell approach in patients undergoing tumor resection in thoracic surgery. Eleven lung cancer patients and one non seminomotous germ cell tumor of the mediastinum who underwent tumor resection via hemiclamshell approach in our department, between 2007 and 2018 were studied retrospectively, analyzing the indications, morbidity and outcome.

      The indications were apical tumors with vascular invasion in four, giant mass (10, 17, 21cm in tumor diameter) with superior or inferior vena cava invasion in three, aortic arch invasion in one, sternal invasion in one, mediastinal lymph node metastasis in the left upper lung cancer in one, and pulmonary artery aneurysm after left upper lobectomy in one. In eleven lung cancer patients, combined resection of the neighboring organ was performed in nine organs among eight patients: subclavian artery in two, carotid artery in one, aorta in one, superior vena cava in one, chest wall in two, phrenic nerve in one, and pericardium in one. One-month mortality was 0%. Operative morbidity was observed in four patients (33%): two patients suffered from deep wound infection, one from a chylothorax, and one from pleural effusion. R0 resection was achieved in eleven patients.

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      The hemiclamshell approach was associated with relative high morbidity rate but no mortality. Hemiclamshell is suitable for tumours of the cervicothoracic junction with vascular invasion and giant tumors, providing good access for control of the large vessels including pulmonary artery and vein.

      P3.01-31 - Prognostic Factors in Patients with Resected Pathological N2 Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (ID 12648)

      12:00 - 13:30  |  Author(s): Masaya Nakamura

      • Abstract

      Background

      Postoperative outcome for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with mediastinal lymph node metastasis is unfavorable even after complete resection. To identify the subgroup of NSCLC patients with mediastinal lymph node metastasis whom we recommend surgical treatment, we sought to investigate prognostic factors in these patients.

      a9ded1e5ce5d75814730bb4caaf49419 Method

      We retrospectively reviewed NSCLC patients with pathologically identified mediastinal lymph node metastasis who underwent complete resection with systematic nodal dissection between 2000 and 2016. Demographic, clinical, and pathologic factors (sex, age, Brinkman index, performance status [PS], % vital capacity, forced expiratory volume % in 1 second, preoperative carcinoembryonic antigen [CEA], histological subtype, pathological tumor size, p-T factor [7th edition], pleural invasion, pulmonary metastasis, histological grade, number of positive mediastinal nodal stations [single station vs multiple stations], number of positive mediastinal lymph nodes [1-2 vs ≥3], epidermal growth factor receptor [EGFR] mutation status, and adjuvant chemotherapy) were analyzed using the log-rank test as univariate analyses and a Cox proportional hazards regression model for multivariate analyses to identify independent predictors of favorable overall survival (OS).

      4c3880bb027f159e801041b1021e88e8 Result

      Of the 54 eligible patients, 38 were male and 16 were female. The median age and CEA were 65 years and 5.3 ng/mL, respectively. Lobectomy, bilobectomy, and pneumonectomy were performed in 49/3/2 patients. Histological subtypes were adenocarcinoma in 29 patients, squamous cell carcinoma in 17, and others in 8. EGFR was inspected in 33 patients, and 10 patients were EGFR mutated. Adjuvant chemotherapy was performed in 26 patients. The details of adjuvant chemotherapy were cisplatin-based combination chemotherapy in 18 patients, and carboplatin-based combination chemotherapy in 8.

      The 3-year and 5-year OS were 64.9% and 44.7%, respectively, with a median follow-up period of 41 months. The preoperative CEA <5.3 ng/mL (HR: 0.2151) and undergoing adjuvant chemotherapy (HR: 0.3580) were identified as significant predictors of favorable OS. The 3-year and 5-year OS in patients with CEA <5.3 and ≥5.3 ng/mL were 88.3/70.8% vs 41.0/17.9%, respectively (p<0.001). The 3-year and 5-year OS in patients who underwent adjuvant chemotherapy or none were 75.3/70.3% vs 55.3/23.1%, respectively (p = 0.009).

      8eea62084ca7e541d918e823422bd82e Conclusion

      Even if NSCLC patients have mediastinal lymph node metastasis, favorable postoperative prognosis may be expected in patients with low preoperative serum CEA. Adjuvant chemotherapy should be considered in patients with mediastinal lymph node metastasis on pathological examination.
