Pneumonostomy in the Surgical Management of Hydatid Cyst of the Lung
Conclusion Pneumonostomy is a safe and effective technique for dealing with the residual cavity in large complicated cysts and bilateral HCL.[...]Georg Thieme Verlag KG Stuttgart · New YorkArticle in Thieme eJournals:Table of contents | Abstract | Full text
We report a very rare case of LAM with malignant lymphoma. A 51-year-old female had medical history of recurrent pneumothorax and nephrectomy for a left renal angiomyolipoma and was diagnosed with LAM by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery at the age of 30. She presented with left neck mass. Computed tomography and magnetic response imaging showed multiple enlarged cervical lymph nodes. 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose-positron emission tomography (FDG-PET) showed abnormal uptake in the mass. We suspected a malignant tumor or extrapulmonary lesion of LAM, and performed surgical biopsy. Pathologically, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma ...
Conclusion This study optimizes the procedure of port-only artificial pneumothorax robot-assisted lobectomy in order to serve lung cancer patients better. DOI: 10.3779/j.issn.1009-3419.2020.01.08
This article provides an overview of the common and important chest injuries that the anesthesiologist may encounter in patients following trauma including blunt injury, pneumothorax, hemothorax, blunt aortic injury, and blunt cardiac injury.Recent FindingsRib fractures are frequently associated with chest injury and are associated with significant pain and other complications. Regional anesthesia techniques combined with a multimodal analgesic strategy can improve patient outcomes and reduce complications. There is increasing evidence for paravertebral blocks for this indication, and the myofascial plane blocks are a popu...
Small-caliber chest tubes are used to treat pneumothorax and pleural fluid collections. Although commonly considered a less invasive alternative to large-caliber thoracostomy tubes, small-caliber tubes have a high complication rate. Emergency physicians must be familiar with common and dangerous procedure complications associated with these devices and have a systematic and rapid approach to identify and solve malfunctions. Structured root cause analysis can facilitate identification of problems.
Conclusions: Our predictive model showed good predictive ability for identifying true negatives among nonspecific benign lung biopsy results.
Conclusions: Synchronous core-needle biopsy and MWA via a coaxial cannula is technically safe and feasible in the management of highly suspicious malignant pulmonary nodules, and this procedure has lesser complications and similar effects (both 100% effective treatment) compared with sequential procedures.
Conclusions: CT-guided percutaneous interstitial brachytherapy with iodine-125 seeds can be used for the treatment of lung malignant tumors. Its clinical curative effect is remarkable and it results in limited trauma, reducing the incidence of adverse reactions and improving patient quality of life.
Conclusions: Camrelizumab administration combined with MWA was safe in the treatment of advanced NSCLC, and the combination improved the ORR of camrelizumab alone compared to previous reports.
ConclusionsFor the treatment of SP, NA method could significantly decrease complication rate, operation rate, as well as hospital stay length, compared with the CT method. Subgroup analysis indicated that the use of CT method in SSP and PSP patients might increase the initial success rate.
We report a patient who developed a spontaneous hemothorax, who upon evacuation of the chest was found to have a hemorrhagic lower lobe mass consistent with pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis. Various conditions are associated with pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis, suggesting chronic lung injury as a factor in pathogenesis. Hemothorax of this magnitude with relatively no known inciting risk factors, represents an exceptionally rare case presentation.
