Abstract

Mediastinum abscess caused by sharp esophageal foreign body perforation usually needs surgical treatment, and the surgical procedures vary according to size of perforation and scope of abscess, etc. For special case with small esophageal mucosal crevasse and focal abscess confined to mediastinum, minimally invasive surgery with guidance of video-mediastinoscopy would be an alternative method, however, application of video-mediastinoscopy in this life-threatening situation was rarely reported. One patient with detention of fish bone stuck in the esophagus developed systemic inflammatory response syndrome. Computed tomography results revealed that two high-density foreign bodies migrated extraluminally and caused abscess confined in the mediastinum. Multidisplinary collaborative efforts of anesthesiology, gastroenterology and thoracic surgery were made to optimize the therapeutic process. By taking advantages of wide working channel and better exposure of video-mediastinoscopy, two sharp fish bones were removed with minimal risk of injuring adjacent important tissues, furthermore, complete debridement of the abscess and precise drainage tube indwelling was achieved simultaneously. Postoperative comprehensive therapy including anti-infection and nutrition support guaranteed a smooth transition of perioperative period. This is the first report on application of video-mediastinoscopy in removing two fish bones that migrated extraluminally and debridement of the abscess caused by esophagus perforation with minimal injury risk, which offer a safe and effective minimal invasive method for specific cases.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 16 May 2018.
All research outputs
#9,916,505
of 12,953,232 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#238
of 486 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#189,424
of 271,120 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Cardiothoracic Surgery
#7
of 36 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,953,232 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 20th percentile – i.e., 20% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 486 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 2.5. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 271,120 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 24th percentile – i.e., 24% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 36 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 69% of its contemporaries.
