AbstractAbstract PDF
A 70-year-old male came to the emergency room of the authors' hospital because of sudden cardiac arrest due to inferior wall ST elevation myocardial infarction. His coronary angiography revealed multiple severe coronary spasms in his very long left anterior descending artery. After an injection of intracoronary nitroglycerine, his stenosis improved. The cardiac arrest relapsed, however, accompanied by ST elevation of the inferior leads, while the patient was on diltiazem and nitrate medication to prevent coronary spasm. Recovery was not achieved even with cardiac massage, intravenous injection of epinephrine and atropine, and intravenous infusion of nitroglycerine. The patient eventually recovered through high-dose nicorandil intravenous infusion without ST elevation of his inferior leads. Therefore, intravenous infusion of a high dose of nicorandil must be considered a treatment option for cardiac arrest caused by refractory coronary vasospasm.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Osteochondroma is a common bone tumor but a rare tumor in the rib. It is often asymptomatic and observed incidentally. This is a case report of a 49-year-old woman with an osteochondroma mimicking a mediastinal mass in hereditary multiple exostoses. The chest X-ray and computed tomography (CT) scans revealed the bony density feature of the mass. Surgical excision confirmed that the lesion was an osteochondroma.

AbstractAbstract PDF
Tracheal diverticulum is relatively rare. It results from congenital or acquired weakness of the tracheal wall. Most cases are asymptomatic, but when symptoms are present, they are usually nonspecific. A 54-year-old man complained of sputum lasting for several months. Chest computed tomography showed an air-containing cystic structure in the trachea. Fiberoptic bronchoscopy demonstrated ostium arising from the right posterolateral wall at the trachea. Reported herein is a case of eosinophilic bronchitis associated with tracheal diverticulum.
