Mediastinoscopy in Dubai at DRHC

Overview of Mediastinoscopy

Mediastinoscopy is a surgical procedure used to examine the mediastinum, the area in the chest between the lungs that contains the heart, trachea, esophagus, and lymph nodes. This procedure is often used to diagnose and stage lung cancer, investigate other thoracic diseases, and assess the lymph nodes. At DRHC Dubai, our experienced thoracic surgeons perform mediastinoscopy with precision and care, utilizing advanced techniques to ensure accurate diagnosis and effective treatment.

Indications for Mediastinoscopy

Mediastinoscopy is indicated for a variety of conditions, including:

  • Lung Cancer: Staging and assessment of lymph nodes to determine the extent of the disease.
  • Mediastinal Tumors: Evaluation of masses or tumors in the mediastinum.
  • Lymphadenopathy: Investigation of enlarged lymph nodes to identify infections, inflammations, or malignancies.
  • Sarcoidosis: Diagnosis and assessment of this inflammatory disease.
  • Thymoma: Evaluation and biopsy of tumors originating from the thymus gland.
  • Unexplained Chest Infections: Investigation of chronic or unexplained infections in the chest.

Procedure Details for Mediastinoscopy

  1. Anesthesia: The patient is placed under general anesthesia to ensure comfort and immobility during the procedure.
  2. Incision: A small incision is made at the base of the neck, above the sternum (breastbone).
  3. Insertion: A mediastinoscopy (a thin, flexible tube with a light and camera) is inserted through the incision into the mediastinum.
  4. Visualization: The mediastinoscopy provides a clear view of the structures and lymph nodes in the mediastinum.
  5. Biopsy: If necessary, tissue samples are collected from lymph nodes or other areas for pathological examination.
  6. Completion: The mediastinoscopy is carefully withdrawn, and the incision is closed with sutures.

Advantages of Mediastinoscopy

  • Minimally Invasive: Small incision and minimal disruption to surrounding tissues.
  • Accurate Diagnosis: High-resolution visualization allows for precise identification and biopsy of abnormalities.
  • Effective Staging: Provides crucial information for staging lung cancer and planning treatment.
  • Quick Recovery: Faster recovery time compared to more invasive surgical procedures.
