Since the first permanent endocardial pacemaker was implanted, there have been significant technological advancements in device programming, lead function and battery longevity. However, the device design for the conventional transvenous pacemaker had essentially remained unchanged – a pulse generator connected to 1 or more transvenous leads. The complications associated with these devices were either related to subcutaneous pocket, including hematomas or skin erosions increasing the risk of infection, acute complications at the time of implant such as cardiac tamponade and pneumothorax, or late complications such as...

Authors: Buyuktiryaki M, Uras N, Okur N, Oncel MY, Kadioglu Simsek G, Ozluer Işik S, Oguz SS Abstract Purpose: The EDIN scale (Échelle Douleur Inconfort Nouveau-Né, neonatal pain and discomfort scale) and HRV (Heart Rate Variability) has been used for the evaluation of prolonged pain. The aim of our study was to assess the value of the NIPE (Newborn Infant Parasympathetic Evaluation) index and EDIN scale for the evaluation of prolonged pain in preterm infants with chest tube placement due to pneumothorax. Methods: This prospective observational study assessed prolonged pain in preterm infants wit...

We present the case of a 2 weeks old baby who was admitted to hospital with RDS symptoms and left pleural effusion: X rays and CT were suggestive for a pulmonary cystic lesion with pleural complications. Because of the persistence of pleural empyema and the development of a pneumothorax the baby underwent surgery. The histological examination revealed a type 3 CPAM associated with pleural loculated empyema.According to this case, in newborns with RDS loculated pleural empyema may mimick pulmonary cystic lesions; a treatment-resistant pleural empyema or pyopneumothorax in a newborn can recognize a CPAM 3 as a probable under...

Conclusions: Very few studies with important methodological limitations analyze the role of chest ultrasound in the diagnosis of TB. The scarce available data suggests potential targets of future diagnostic or feasibility trials, such as the detection of tuberculosis–related pleural effusion, residual pleural thickening, lymphadenopathy, TB parenchymal patterns, or the use of CUS in biopsy guidance.

This study will determine if using an S-ICD compared to a TV-ICD reduces a primary composite outcome of perioperative complications including pulmonary or pericardial perforation, lead dislodgement or dysfunction, tricuspid regurgitation and ipsilateral venous thrombosis. Five hundred patients will be enrolled from 14 Canadian hospitals, and data collected to both early- (at 6 months) and mid-term complications (at 24 months) as well as mortality and ICD shock efficacy.SummaryThe ATLAS randomized trial is comparing early- and mid-term vascular and lead-related complications among S-ICD versus TV-ICD recipients wh...

Waseem M Hajjar, Areej S Alrajeh, Lulwah S Alturki, Sami A Al-Nassar, Adnan W HajjarAnnals of Thoracic Medicine 2018 13(4):254-256Cutis laxa (CL) is a rare connective tissue disease characterized by a loose, wrinkled, and inelastic skin. Here, we report an unusual presentation in a 15-year-old male patient who is a known patient of CL who presented with bilateral pneumothorax. He was successfully managed initially by chest tube insertion and then he was treated surgically with bilateral staged thoracoscopy, apical bullectomy, and pleurodesis with full uneventful recovery.
