Diagnostic and Treatment Monitoring Potential of Serum Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor-D in Lymphangioleiomyomatosis. Lymphology. 2016 Sep;49(3):140-9 Authors: Mou Y, Ye L, Wang J, Yee MS, Song YL, Zhu L, Jin ML Abstract Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare multisystem disease occurring almost exclusively in premenopausal women and characterized by cystic lung destruction, abdominal tumors (renal angiomyolipomas (AML)), and involvement of the axial lymphatics (adenopathy, lymphangioleiomyomas). Serum vascular endothelial growth factor-D (VEGF-D), a lymphangiogenic factor, has been recently consi...

Kanazawa During video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), localization is sometimes needed to detect a target lesion that is too small and/or too far from the pleura. In 1995, Kanazawa et al. developed short hookwire and suture system. Since then, this system has been placed often for selected targets before VATS in Japan. This short hookwire and suture system is a representative preoperative localization method and the placement pro...

Authors: Kim JS, Kim KH, Kim WW Abstract OBJECTIVES: Acupuncture is increasing in popularity as a complementary and alternative medicine. Pneumothorax is the most common and potentially serious adverse effect after acupuncture. This complication can cause fatality in the absence of rapid treatment. Here, we analyze the clinical presentation and discuss prevention of post-acupuncture pneumothorax and an approach to reducing this complication. METHODS: Patients presenting with post-acupuncture pneumothorax in our hospital center during 2011-2015 were retrospectively analyzed. Body mass index (BMI), patient's pre-...

An FDA advisory committee panel yesterday voted against approving BTG‘s PneumRX’s Elevair endobronchial coil system intended for treating patients with severe emphysema. The panel voted 7 to 5 in favor of the device’s safety, but 8 to 3 that the benefits do not outweigh the risks, and 5 to 7 that the device was effective for use with patients in its proposed indications. The Elevair device is a nitinol endobronchial coil intended to be deployed bronchoscopically to reduce lung volume in patients with severe emphysema. The company submitted an application for premarket approval with the FDA, backed by clin...

AbstractReal-time ultrasound guidance for central venous catheterization has become a standard technique. This technique has been reported to yield high success rates and fewer complications compared with landmark techniques. However, it can be risky when the practitioner does not possess proper knowledge and skills. Lose sight of the needle tip can lead to severe complications such as arterial puncture or pneumothorax. Also, posterior wall penetration of the target vessels must be avoided. Misplacement of the catheter to other vessels can sometimes occur, and may only be discovered after the catheterization procedure. To ...

Chronic pulmonary aspergillosis (CPA) is a slowly progressive infection mainly caused by Aspergillus fumigatus, characterized by inflammatory destruction of lung tissue with cavitation, pleural thickening and/or fibrosis, and associated with significant respiratory and constitutional symptoms [1 –3]. CPA usually affects patients with underlying structural airway disease with air-filled cavities or bullae, such as tuberculosis (TB), non-tuberculous mycobacterial infection, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA), pneumothorax and sarcoid osis.

Conclusions Our results show that OK-432 pleurodesis is an effective treatment for pneumothorax associated with IP; however, clinicians should be aware of the possibility of adverse events, especially in patients who are critically ill.
