Quality of Life Predictors in Patients with Dyspnea

Uncontrolled dyspnea is terrifying for patients and has a negative effect on quality of life (QOL) (Gupta, Lis,&Grutsch, 2007). Fatigue (92%), dyspnea (63%), and pain (55%) have been reported as the three most prevalent symptoms for patients diagnosed with higher risk myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS) (Efficace et al., 2015). Dyspnea and associated symptoms in advanced cancer are not adequately treated due to limited research and understanding of the experience (Twaddle et al., 2007).

We report pulmonary resections for lung cancers in 2 patients with partial anomalous pulmonary venous connection (PAPVC) identified preoperatively. In case 1, right upper lobectomy was performed as the definitive operation for both lung cancer and PAPVC in the same lobe. In case 2, because lung cancer and PAPVC existed in different lobes, cardiac catheterization was performed to evaluate the need for correction of the PAPVC. Then, left lower lobectomy was safely performed without correcting the PAPVC located in the left upper lobe. The treatment plan for patients with PAPVC who require pulmonary resection should be careful...

We present a case report of a patient who was admitted to the emergency department with severe substernal chest pain and shortness of breath who was diagnosed with spontaneous diaphragmatic rupture and caudate liver herniation. The caudate lobe was incarcerated, contributing to the patient's symptoms. A celiotomy was performed and the defect was repaired primarily. PMID: 29233365 [PubMed - in process]

We describe the case of a 69-year-old man with a thoracic pseudoaneurysm caused by a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma. He had a large mass inside the aortic arch. Five weeks later, an asymptomatic aneurysm protruding from the minor curvature of the distal aortic arch was observed. We suspected a mycotic pseudoaneurysm and performed total arch replacement with an omental pedicle flap graft. Intraoperative tissue cultures and histopathologic tests identified no bacteria, however. Eventually, a pathologic examination revealed that the structure initially suspected to be an intramural thrombus was a diffuse large B-cell lymphoma....
