Conclusions Thoracic endometriosis syndrome is a poorly recognized entity responsible for various manifestations other than pneumothorax. In case of catamenial thoracic pain, diaphragmatic hernia and catamenial pleural effusion surgery should be advised in a multidisciplinary setting.
DISCUSSION: The percentage of patients who might benefit from additive treatment implemented in tCPR efforts was shown to be equal between the local situations in Leipzig and Chemnitz compared to previous reports in Berlin. A need for optimizing the professional resuscitation process still remains as not all reversible causes were appropriately addressed. Further training and education should intensively address the mentioned deficits and continuous awareness of necessary additional medical procedures in the preclinical setting in cases of traumatic cardiac arrest is inevitable. Cooperation with forensic institutes ca...
CONCLUSIONS: Evidence-based recommendations for the diagnosis and treatment of patients with LAM are provided. Frequent reassessment and updating will be needed. PMID: 29140122 [PubMed - in process]
To analyse whether the lowest value of lung radiodensity along the passage of the biopsy needle is a quantitative predictor of pneumothorax.
We report a case of cerebral air embolism which has occurred secondary to lung laceration. The patient underwent intercostal drainage for hydro-pneumothorax and developed forceful cough and suddenly changed in consciousness. Air embolism was diagnosed by computed tomography brain and was managed by high-concentration oxygen therapy and other supportive measures and is being discharged in satisfactory condition.
We report the case of a patient presenting with spontaneous pneumothorax, in whom a familial genetic study revealed a novel nonsense mutation: p.(Arg379*) in FLCN. PMID: 29124032 [PubMed]
Conclusion: Severe pulmonary contusion (pulmonary lung contusion score 6-12) is an independent risk factor for VAP in ventilated trauma patients with multiple rib fractures. PMID: 29124026 [PubMed]
Conclusion RTTJV with end-expiratory pressure control allowed oxygenation during difficult intubation, with a low rate of complications.
Conclusions and DiscussionThe atypical pulmonary alterations found in CT examination can be confused with other lung diseases and they are always a challenge even for the most experienced radiologist. In our experience, cases with atypical pulmonary sarcoidosis patterns evaluated in the study are consistent with similar cases described in the literature, both in lymph node and atypical parenchymal involvement. All the atypical characteristics of the work should alert the radiologist to consider sarcoidosis among the possible differential diagnoses, always correlating the results of the computed tomography examination with ...
CONCLUSIONS: Low- to moderate-quality evidence suggests that when used as an adjuvant to peripheral nerve block in upper limb surgery, both perineural and intravenous dexamethasone may prolong duration of sensory block and are effective in reducing postoperative pain intensity and opioid consumption. There is not enough evidence to determine the effectiveness of dexamethasone as an adjuvant to peripheral nerve block in lower limb surgeries and there is no evidence in children. The results of our review may not apply to participants at risk of dexamethasone-related adverse events for whom clinical trials would probably be u...
