[Etiological diagnosis of pulmonary hypertension: A cause of difficult diagnosis].
CONCLUSION: The diagnosis of pulmonary arterial hypertension associated with schistosomiasis may be difficult. It is necessary to repeat the serological studies and, sometimes, to obtain a rectal biopsy. The treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension associated with schistosomiasis is based on specific therapies and antiparasitic treatment.

[The new reference equations of the Global Lung function Initiative (GLI) for pulmonary function tests].
Authors: Guillien A, Soumagne T, Regnard J, Degano B, Groupe Fonction de la SPLF Abstract Until recently, the reference equations available for pulmonary function tests (PFTs) have had several weaknesses: they have often been based on relatively weak samples of normal subjects; they used mathematical models that are not very efficient in describing the evolution of PFTs over age; there were different equations for children/adolescents and for adults; the expression of the results solely as a percentage of the predicted value did not provide a good indication of the statistical significance of any difference that ma...

[Management of a tracheal adenoid cystic medico-surgical carcinoma].
Authors: Thiam K, Carmassi M, Guinde J, Laroumagne S, Thomas P, Astoul P, Dutau H Abstract Adenoid cystic carcinoma or cylindroma is a rare tumor of the trachea which arises from mucous secreting cells. Its evolution and growth are slow but it is often fatal in the absence of radical treatment. The latter relies on a surgical sleeve resection of the pathological area, with a tracheo-tracheal anastomosis. Therapeutic bronchoscopy plays a crucial role in the clinical improvement of patients before surgery which will be performed under better conditions. For inoperable patients, radiotherapy has proved its efficacy, u...

[Twenty years later … A story of intra-thoracic textiloma].
CONCLUSION: The diagnosis of intrathoracic textiloma remains rare and its late presentation is non specific. Radiological imaging with a CT-scan and/or MRI could lead to the diagnosis. Surgery remains the reference treatment for the diagnosis and cure of intrathoracic textiloma with pathological examination, essential for confirmation. A means of prevention has to be developed because swab count is not totally reliable. PMID: 30446182 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: Revue des Maladies Respiratoires)

[Use of time of a nurse involved in breaking the diagnosis of lung cancer and navigating patients in the healthcare system: Experience of an academic thoracic oncology ward].
We describe the way a nurse, assuming the role of assisting the doctor when a diagnosis of cancer is revealed and coordinating the care of patients in a teaching hospital, uses her time. One thousand and forty-one patients were supported by the nurse during 6515 procedures over 4.27 years. The median (interquartile range) number of interventions per patient was 3 (7). Helping to break news of cancer and the coordination of care represented approximately 20 and 80% of the working time of the nurse, respectively. The nurse spent 43% of her time without the doctor and more than half of this duration was dedicated to meetings ...

Authors: Tromeur C, Le Mao R, Jego P, El-Kouri D, Gruel Y, Pan-Petesch B, Bertoletti L, Morange PE, Lemoigne E, Paleiron N, Leroyer C, Couturaud F Abstract Hormonal exposure in young women increases the risk of venous thromboembolic disease (VTE). Thrombophilia testing is often proposed in women of childbearing age before the initiation of contraception. However, the presence of a familial history of VTE has the potential to be more accurate than the presence of inherited thrombophilia. OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate an association between the risk of VTE in young women with hormonal exposure (pregnancy or oral cont...

The objective of the study was to evaluate the quality of surgical management of lung cancer in different regions using hospital mortality as an indicator. METHOD: From the national database of the Program of Medical Information Systems (PMSI), data on all patients who had undergone surgery for lung cancer were extracted as well as the characteristics of the centers. The main outcome criterion was hospital mortality. Logistic models allowed an estimation of the risk standardized mortality rate for each center. RESULTS: From January 1, 2015 to December 31, 2015, 10,675 patients underwent surgery for lung cancer in 1...

Authors: Mignard X, Antoine M, Moro-Sibilot D, Dayen C, Mennecier B, Gervais R, Amour E, Milleron B, Morin F, Zalcman G, Wislez M Abstract BACKGROUND: Programmed cell death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) is a checkpoint receptor that facilitates immune evasion by tumor cells, through interaction with programmed cell death-1 (PD-1), a receptor expressed by T-cells. Durvalumab is an anti-PD-L1 monoclonal antibody that blocks PD-L1 interaction with PD-1 on T-cells, countering the tumor's immune-evading tactics. Phase I/II studies demonstrated durable responses and manageable tolerability in heavily pre-treated patients with non-sma...

Despite an improvement in management globally, mortality remains high especially in severe forms of CAP. Adequate early antibiotics remain the cornerstone of the treatment but adjuvant corticosteroid administration is being considered to counterbalance the systemic inflammatory reaction and modulate the immune response. In the last ten years, several clinical trials and meta-analyses have been conducted in severe and non-severe CAP to assess the efficacy of cort...
