Vena Cava Sarcoma With Tumor Embolus in the Pulmonary Artery: Surgical Treatment.

Summary of "Vena Cava Sarcoma With Tumor Embolus in the Pulmonary Artery: Surgical Treatment."

Tumors of the inferior vena cava are rarely complicated by pulmonary tumor embolism. We report a patient with a leiomyosarcoma of the inferior vena cava complicated by an embolus in the left pulmonary artery. We describe the successful treatment of this condition, which consisted of cavoplasty and pulmonary endarterectomy conducted under hypothermic circulatory arrest. Different aspects of the surgical strategy are discussed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An anomalous pulmonary venous return in which the right PULMONARY VEIN is not connected to the LEFT ATRIUM but to the INFERIOR VENA CAVA. Scimitar syndrome is named for the crescent- or Turkish sword-like shadow in the chest radiography and is often associated with hypoplasia of the right lung and right pulmonary artery, and dextroposition of the heart.

Mechanical devices inserted in the inferior vena cava that prevent the migration of blood clots from deep venous thrombosis of the leg.

A vein which arises from the right ascending lumbar vein or the vena cava, enters the thorax through the aortic orifice in the diaphragm, and terminates in the superior vena cava.

Blocking of the PULMONARY ARTERY or one of its branches by an EMBOLUS.

A condition that occurs when the obstruction of the thin-walled SUPERIOR VENA CAVA interrupts blood flow from the head, upper extremities, and thorax to the RIGHT ATRIUM. Obstruction can be caused by NEOPLASMS; THROMBOSIS; ANEURYSM; or external compression. The syndrome is characterized by swelling and/or CYANOSIS of the face, neck, and upper arms.
