Beijing Jishuitan Hospital is a Class A tertiary comprehensive hospital in China. As an important department, Thoracic Surgery Department is responsible for diagnosis and treatment to illness related to thoracic cage, lungs, esophagus and mediastinum.
As the Burn and Trauma Recuse Center of Beijing, our hospital serves massive patients from Beijing, surrounding area and all over China. Thoracic Department also has abundant experience on thoracic trauma, especially for the rib fracture treatment. We advance with the times and use the latest international technology in our practice. Through ultrasonic localization and MIPO Titanium plates, we achieve a good clinical effect on fracture fixation.
Pectus excavatum and pectus carinatum are the most common chest wall deformity disease which manifest a sunken or raised appearance of the sternum, rib or costicartilage. We are the pioneer to practice NUSS operation in China in the treatment of pectus excavatum. Meanwhile, as for the severe deformity, we can also take sternum wedge osteotomy and costochondrectomy to improve the chest wall appearance.
Thoracoscopic or open thoracotomy pulmonary lobectomy with mediastinal lymph node dissection has become the standard operation for early lung cancer. Working with Respiratory Medicine and Department of Pathology, Thoracic Department provides a standard diagnosis and treatment for lung cancer patients. Our department is one of the first units to pass the Class IV qualification test of VATS in Beijing. Otherwise, CT guided percutaneous biopsy offers a new diagnostic method for patients with pulmonary nodules. CT guided radiofrequency ablation technology also provides another method of treatment for the late chest cancer patients with no chance to do a surgery. We are also the pioneer to bring computer navigation radiofrequency ablation technology in the treatment of lung cancer.
Chest wall tumor includes tumor of soft tissue, rib and sternum. Resection scope and operative plan vary with malignant degree. As a general treatment procedure, percutaneous biopsy is the first step to define the character of tumor. After that, an operative plan will be made according to pathological results. A wide range of chest wall defect after tumor resection is a serious problem in chest wall reconstruction after chest wall tumor resection. Relying on the great advantage of our Burn Department, treatment for a wide range of chest wall defect through the method of flap surgery has become our unique character. And that makes it possible to do an operation for lots of patients which have no chance to do before.
Mediastinal tumor can be caused by lots of reasons and mostly needs operative treatment with the tumor resection though VATS or open thoracotomy. Precise position will be made through comprehensive evaluation and imaging examination. As for the tumor which is hard to locate, intraoperative B-mode ultrasound will help surgeons to get an accurate position to remove it.
Esophageal cancer often manifests a difficulty in progressive dysphagia. According to the preoperative assessment, surgical or non-surgical treatment then can be decided.
VATS has become a mature technology, which is widely used in all fields of thoracic surgery. Currently we have 4 most advanced thoracoscopes. Through the application of the hard and soft thoracoscopy, we practice the pleural probe, biopsy, pulmonary bulla resection, resection of the tumor and achieve good results.
