Spinal cord ischemia resulting in paraplegia following extrapleural pneumonectomy.
Abstract A patient undergoing radical extrapleural pneumonectomy for epithelioid malignant mesothelioma developed acute paraplegia postoperatively related to long-segment spinal cord ischemia. The usual area of concern for this complication is the T9 to T12 area where the artery of Adamkiewicz is most likely to originate. In this patient, there was ligation of only upper thoracic, ipsilateral segmental arteries from the T3 to T6 level, yet he still developed paraplegia. Our hypothesis is variant mid-thoracic vascular anatomy. Previously unreported, to our knowledge, this should be understood as a rare complication ...

Reexpansion pulmonary edema following local anesthetic thoracoscopy: correlation and evolution of radiographic and ultrasonographic findings.
Abstract Local anesthetic (medical) thoracoscopy is used with increasing frequency by pulmonologists worldwide for both diagnostic and therapeutic purposes, notably in comorbid patients who may not be physiologically robust enough for general anesthesia. Understanding the complications that can arise and how to manage them is crucial for any physician performing this procedure. Reexpansion pulmonary edema is a rare but recognized complication of draining pleural effusions and pneumothoraces that has not been described previously in association with physician-led thoracoscopy. This case provides an opportunity for a...

Positive airway pressure therapy with adaptive servoventilation: part 1: operational algorithms.
Abstract The beginning of the 21st century witnessed the advent of new positive airway pressure (PAP) technologies for the treatment of central and complex (mixtures of obstructive and central) sleep apnea syndromes. Adaptive servoventilation (ASV) devices applied noninvasively via mask that act to maintain a stable level of ventilation regardless of mechanism are now widely available. These PAP devices function by continually measuring either minute ventilation or airflow to calculate a target ventilation to be applied as needed. The apparatus changes inspiratory PAP on an ongoing basis to maintain the chosen para...

Secretory hyperresponsiveness and pulmonary mucus hypersecretion.
Abstract The term bronchial hyperresponsiveness is generally used to describe a heightened airway smooth muscle bronchoconstrictor response measured by bronchoprovocation testing. However, the airway also responds to inflammation or bronchoprovocation with increased mucus secretion. We use the term "secretory hyperresponsiveness" to mean increased mucus secretion either intrinsically or in response to bronchoprovocation. This is not the same as retained phlegm or sputum. Unlike smooth muscle contraction, which is rapidly reversible using a bronchodilator, mucus hypersecretion produces airflow limitation that revers...

Cause‐specific mortality by race in low‐income black and white people with Type 2 diabetes
ConclusionsThese findings suggest that the leading causes of death and their risk factors are largely similar among black and white people with diabetes. For the two leading causes of death in each race, however, ischaemic heart disease and respiratory disorders, the magnitude of risk is lower among black people and contributes to their higher survival rates.This article is protected by copyright.

Effect of Kuwanon G Isolated from the Root Bark of Morus alba on Ovalbumin‐induced Allergic Response in a Mouse Model of Asthma
In this study, we investigated the antiasthmatic effect of kuwanon G isolated from MCR on ovalbumin (OVA)‐induced allergic asthma in mice. Kuwanon G (1 and 10 mg/kg) was administered orally in mice once a day for 7 days during OVA airway challenge. We measured the levels of OVA‐specific IgE and Th2 cytokines (IL‐4, IL‐5, and IL‐13) in the sera or bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluids and also counted the immune cells in BAL fluids. Histopathological changes in the lung tissues were analyzed. Kuwanon G significantly decreased the levels of OVA‐specific IgE and IL‐4, IL‐5, and IL‐13 in the sera and BAL fl...

Diagnosis and Treatment of Dynamic Collapse of the Cricotracheal Ligament in Thoroughbred Racehorses
ConclusionsCTLC is a rare cause of dynamic obstruction in Thoroughbred racehorses. Resolution may occur after adaptation to training and after inflammation of the respiratory tract is resolved, but for horses with persistent CTLC, surgical reduction of the cricotracheal space and imbrication of the cricotracheal ligament may result in resolution of clinical signs.

Periorbital oedema after dental extraction: A case study.
Abstract Case study A woman in her early 30s presented with a swollen left eye. She had undergone extraction of an impacted lower left third molar 2 hours earlier. This procedure was done under local anaesthesia and the dentist used a hand-held, high-speed, compressed-air surgical drill to section the tooth before removal. During the procedure, the woman experienced an abnormal sensation that she described as 'a bubble moving up the face'. She also complained of fullness in her left ear, although hearing was unaffected. Clinically, she was haemodynamically stable, apyrexial and was not in respiratory distress. She ...

The red blood cell: a new key player in cardiovascular homoeostasis? Focus on the nitric oxide pathway.
Abstract RBCs (red blood cells) have a fundamental role in the regulation of vascular homoeostasis thanks to the ability of these cells to carry O2 (oxygen) between respiratory surfaces and metabolizing tissues and to release vasodilator compounds, such as ATP and NO (nitric oxide), in response to tissue oxygenation. More recently it has been shown that RBCs are also able to produce NO endogenously as they express a functional NOS (nitric oxide synthase), similar to the endothelial isoform. In addition, RBCs carry important enzymes and molecules involved in L-arginine metabolism, such as arginase, NO synthesis inhi...

Endothelial cell oxidative stress in diabetes: a key driver of cardiovascular complications?
Abstract Atherothrombotic disease is a well-recognized complication of diabetes and is a major contributor to the high morbidity and mortality associated with diabetes. Although there is substantial evidence linking diabetes with cardiovascular disease, the specific effect of hyper- (or hypo-) glycaemia is less well understood. The present review focuses on the impact that glycaemic dysregulation has on respiratory function and ROS (reactive oxygen species) generation in the endothelial cells that are critical in preventing several key steps in the atherothrombotic process. Endothelial cells are particularly suscep...

Abdominal Fat Suspension Device for Maintaining Normal Cardiorespiratory Function in Patients Undergoing Conscious Sedation during Surgery: A Feasibility Study.
We describe a simple device that might help attenuate this risk. We created a noninvasive suction device for abdominal suspension. By lifting the burden of excess weight, this device should decrease respiratory effort. To test the feasibility of excess weight removal in relieving cardiac stress, we tested 22 supine, healthy, normal-weight subjects by measuring their heart rates with and without a 13-kg tissue model on their abdomen to simulate excess weight. There was no significant difference in blood oxygen saturation before and after weight removal (P=0.318). However, the decrease in heart rate was significant (P <0....

Early Prophylactic versus Late Selective Use of Surfactant for Respiratory Distress Syndrome in Very Preterm Infants: A Collaborative Study of 53 Multi-Center Trials in Korea.
Abstract Pulmonary surfactant (PS) therapy was proven to be highly successful for the treatment of respiratory distress syndrome in premature infants. As a results, early prophylactic (EP) PS therapy has been introduced recently in Europe, the US and Korea. However, no multi-center study was compared EP and late selective (LS) PS therapies in Korea. We performed a retrospective multi-center study to compare the outcomes of EP and LS PS therapies in very preterm infants. We analyzed clinical morbidity and mortality for 1,291 infants in 2010 (LS group) and 1,249 infants in 2011 (EP group); the infants were born <3...
