Patch aortoplasty and anatomical lung resection in a patient with aortobronchial fistula due to aortic psuedo-aneurysm

AbstractAortobronchial fistula (ABF) is a rare and devastating complication, if left untreated. Its main clinical manifestation is hemoptysis, and there are no defined guidelines for its treatment yet. Herein, we present the case of a 74-year-old male who complained of back pain and hemoptysis. The patient was diagnosed with pseudo-aneurysm and ABF, and he underwent hybrid thoracic endovascular aortic repair. However, hemoptysis recurred. With patch aortoplasty and anatomical lung resection, successful management of ABF was achieved, with no relapse for 5  years.

In conclusion, our study demonstrated that Nrf2 deficiency promoted the increasing trend of autophagy during aging in skeletal muscle. Nrf2 deficiency and increasing age may cause excessive autophagy in skeletal muscle, which can be a potential mechanism for the development of sarcopenia.

Angaramo, Patricia AmelinAbstractThoracic epidural analgesia has proven to be an effective method for pain management following Pectus excavatum repair. However, because of the accompanying thoracic spinal deformities, thoracic epidural analgesia may not always be a feasible option in all cases. If ineffective, there could be increased opioid administration in order to adequately manage any post operative pain. Studies have shown that early exposur...

   One of the most dangerous misconceptions about suicide is that asking a loved one if they are suicidal will increase the odds that they will attempt suicide.  Today Dr. Nate Ivers of Wake Forest University discusses the importance of making “the covert overt” by asking blunt, straightforward questions of those you suspect may be thinking about suicide.  What words should you use, and if the answer is yes, what should you do next?  And why are we so uncomfortable about asking these potentially lifesaving questions?
