Endobronchial electrocautery wire snare prior to wedge bronchoplastic lobectomy for central-type lung cancer: A case report.

Kawasaki H, Nakamoto A, Taira N, Ichi T, Yohena T, Kawabata T - Int J Surg Case Rep (2015)

Bottom Line: A 64-year-old man, who was a long-term corticosteroid user, complicated with left obstructive pneumonia.He was diagnosed with squamous cell carcinoma of c-T3N0M0 Stage IIB.The effectiveness of endobronchial electrocautery using the snare wire has been reported for the treatment of respiratory tract tumors, which allowed planning of the following treatment procedure.

fig0010: (A) Chest X-ray at 1 month after patient’s first visit to our hospital, showing total atelectasis of the left lung field. (B) Chest CT scan showing total atelectasis of the left lung due to obstruction of left main bronchus by endobronchial tumor in the left main bronchus.

Mentions: One month after his first visit to our hospital, the patient again consulted our facility with a chief complaint of febrile dyspnea. Physical examination showed that following vital signs: temperature was 38.8 °C, tachypnea (32 breaths/min), and tachycardia (102 beats/min). There were rough rhonchi and crackles throughout inspiration and expiration on auscultation of the left chest. SpO2 decreased to 80% under room air, therefore, indicating a need for oxygen inhalation. Chest X-ray showed total atelectasis of the left lung field (Fig. 2A). Chest CT scan showed total atelectasis of the left lung due to obstruction of left main bronchus by the endobronchial tumor in the left main bronchus (Fig. 2B). The patient was diagnosed with obstructive pneumonia by endobronchial tumor and an antibiotic was administered.
