Single-port thoracoscopic for the huge spindle cell tumor of esophagusis is one of the most challenging surgeries. Here we reported a rare case of huge spindle cell tumor of esophagusis to explore the application of single-port thoracoscopic in esophageal resection.
A 61-year-old female was admitted due to swallow obstruction with breath tight for 1 month. The enhanced CT showed an irregular mass in the right posterior superior mediastinum close to the cephalic trunk, superior vena cava, right superior pulmonary artery and azygos vein, with tracheal and esophageal displacement. The differential diagnosis is potentially large, including lymphoma, lung cancer, bronchial cysts, esophageal tumors, etc. Ultimately we decided to use single-port thoracoscopic surgery for a biopsy or a complete resection of the tumor based on the intraoperative conditions.
During the operation, we found that the tumor was located in the right posterior superior mediastinum and originated from the intrinsic muscular layer of the esophagus. The spindle cell tumor of esophagus resection by single-port thoracoscopic approach was carried out successfully. Pathological examination revealed esophageal leiomyoma.
The single-port thoracoscopic resection for the spindle cell tumor of esophagus is feasible and comprehensive.
