Voriconazole Exposure May Affect SCC After Lung Transplant
Prolonged exposure to voriconazole may be linked to development, recurrence, progression of skin SCC
ConclusionPatients who are at risk for SCA are patients who have had a cardiac arrest due to ventricular fibrillation (VF) or sustained ventricular tachycardia (SVT), those with familial or inherited condition with sudden cardiac arrest risk, myocardial infarction with an ejection fraction (EF) of less than or equal to 35%, dilated cardiomyopathy (including NICM), with an EF of less than or equal to 35%, ICD explanations, and other conditions with high risk of ventricular tachycardia (VT) or VF are candidates for the WCD.The sample of data was from 186 patients. However, more patients were likely candidates but may not hav...
ConclusionA diagnosis of LC following LTx remains rare. LC in the explanted lung seems to have no impact on survival for early ‐stage disease. LC in the transplanted or native remaining lung after LTx has poor prognosis.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
This study aimed to evaluate preoperative nutritional assessment as a predictor of LTX outcomes.
CONCLUSION: In a post-LTx setting, LUS represents a clinical novelty as a feasible diagnostic and monitoring tool to identify pathological pulmonary complications in the early post-operative phase. PMID: 30414162 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Solidoro P, Corbetta L, Patrucco F, Sorbello M, Piccioni F, D'amato L, Renda T, Petrini F Abstract In the last decades, the use of flexible bronchoscopy (FB) has greatly increased in intensive care, anesthesia and thoracic surgery for diagnostic purpose, management of critical patients and to facilitate airway management for tracheal intubation, one lung ventilation and lung transplant management. The huge availability of endoscopic instruments and devices for airway management has amplified indications and possibilities for bronchoscopic procedures performed by intensive care physicians, anesthesiologist,...
Yasmin Swift, 19, from Ashford, Kent, needs a double lung and heart transplant after being diagnosed with idiopathic pulmonary arterial hypertension in November last year.
James Beeching, 34, has had the incurable genetic condition since he was two years old. Three lung transplants fell through before his surgery. He can finally walk his twins to school in Hastings.
