Role of Endobronchial Ultrasound-guided Transbronchial Needle Aspiration in the Diagnosis and Management of Mediastinal Cyst

Conclusion: Diagnostic and therapeutic yield of EBUS-TBNA for mediastinal cysts is limited and surgical resection remains the treatment of choice.

Conclusion: Our study is the pioneering research to analyze the pathogenesis of CP with integrated informatics and we have identified several hub genes, which reveals that the generation of CP is closely related to inflammation and fibrosis.

A case of severe mitral regurgitation (MR) that was masked by constrictive pericarditis and revealed after pericardiectomy is presented. Diagnosis was made intraoperatively with transesophageal echocardiography. Mitral valve repair was performed using a mitral annuloplasty ring. In some cases, worsening MR after pericardiectomy has been demonstrated to return to baseline with time. In the patient described, MR was severe with secondary ischemic pathology; therefore the decision was made to repair the mitral valve.

Purulent pericarditis is an infectious disease, frequently caused by gram-positive bacteria, that is rarely observed in healthy individuals, and is often associated with predisposing conditions.

A 25-year-old man presented with new-onset substernal chest pain. The pain was dull, and radiated to his neck and left jaw. ECG showed diffuse ST elevation without reciprocal changes (Figure 1A). Troponin level was 4.76 ng/mL (normal: 0 – 0.09). He was started on colchicine and aspirin for the treatment of suspected pericarditis. Repeat troponin level in six hours was greater than 50 ng/mL. Contrast echocardiography showed left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction of 45% and akinesis of all apical segments without left ventricular thrombus.

Abstract The aim of review is to deal with management challenges related either to diagnosis or therapy of non-infectious pericarditis. In European countries with a low prevalence of tuberculosis, the aetiology search is essentially aimed at the exclusion of most common causes, that may require a specific therapy and are at increased risk of complications: systemic autoimmune or autoinflammatory conditions, post-cardiac injury syndrome (5-20%), neoplastic pericardial involvement (5-10%), tuberculosis (about 5% of cases), and rarely purulent in 38°C, subacute course, large pericardial effusion, cardiac tamponad...
