Primary Mediastinal Cysts: A Review of 41 Surgically Managed Cases

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.537
Synopsis: 
In this study we aimed to review the surgical outcomes of primary mediastinal cysts and to determine the differences among various histopathological types. We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of 41 patients with primary mediastinal cysts who underwent surgical excision. In conclusion, despite advanced non-invasive diagnostic techniques, the definitive diagnosis of primary mediastinal cysts can only be made by interventional techniques. Surgery often provides curative therapy with low morbidity and mortality.

ABSTRACT

Thoracoabdominal foregut duplications account for less than 2% of all gastrointestinal duplications. Here, we report a case of thoracoabdominal duplication cyst in an eight-month old boy who presented with both respiratory and abdominal complaints. Excision of both thoracic and abdominal extensions of the thoracoabdominal duplications in the same session is an appropriate and safe option to prevent possible complications.
