Presentation

  • One presented with recurrent chest infection. Computed tomography revealed systemic blood supply to an intralobar sequestration. The other presented with an avulsion injury to the internal mammary vein.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Fishing
  • We report a case of lung abscess caused by an ingested fish bone that was successfully treated by minimally invasive surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Movement Disorder
  • Movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease are increasingly treated with deep brain stimulators.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Forearm Pain
  • Patient 2 after 2½-year follow-up recovered full range of motion of the shoulder, elbow, and forearm. Pain sensation recovered in dermatomes C5 and C6.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Lymphedema
  • An 80-year-old man presented with the characteristic triad of yellow nail syndrome (chronic respiratory disorders, primary lymphedema and yellow nails) in association with coronary artery bypass graft surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Respiratory Disorders
  • An 80-year-old man presented with the characteristic triad of yellow nail syndrome (chronic respiratory disorders, primary lymphedema and yellow nails) in association with coronary artery bypass graft surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Regurgitation
  • […] in difficult airway (27%) and for surgical procedures with high risk for left recurrent laryngeal nerve injury (21%), followed by application in intubated (12%) or tracheostomized (11%) patients. 11% of the patients had an increased risk of gastric regurgitation[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Left Ventricular Dysfunction
  • In this case report, we discuss the use of NO in a routine thoracic surgery patient suffering with severe left ventricular dysfunction and a potential candidate for a very high cardiac risk.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Anhidrosis
  • We describe an extreme case of compensatory truncal hyperhidrosis and anhidrosis over the head and neck region which led to a heatstroke.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Yellow Nails
  • An 80-year-old man presented with the characteristic triad of yellow nail syndrome (chronic respiratory disorders, primary lymphedema and yellow nails) in association with coronary artery bypass graft surgery.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • The thoracic surgeon, whether treating such patients in the practice of congenital heart surgery, or in the practice of adult cardiac or thoracic surgery must have a requisite understanding of such anatomic variants, their diagnostic workup and radiologic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Anterior Mediastinal Mass
  • Phase I clinical trials in thoracic surgery have demonstrated that IFI with second window indocyanine green (TumorGlow ) can identify subcentimeter pulmonary nodules, anterior mediastinal masses, and mesothelioma, while the use of a folate receptor-targeted[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Treatment

  • Overall survival, quality of life, and health status must be considered in decisions regarding cancer treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Clinic Overview Body Advanced surgical treatments for lung, esophagus and other chest cancers The Thoracic Surgery Clinic at UW Medical Center offers a comprehensive approach to the prevention and treatment of all diseases of the chest, including lung[uwmedicine.org]
  • […] experts for treatment and surgical procedures in the speciality of thoracic surgery.[leading-medicine-guide.com]
  • The treatment of lung, chest, and esophageal diseases requires an interdisciplinary approach that draws on various medical specialties.[bmc.org]

Prognosis

  • INTRODUCTION: In most patients with NSCLC, the disease is diagnosed in an advanced stage, the prognosis is poor, and survival is typically measured in months.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Besides, small-celled bronchial carcinomas can grow rapidly in the meantime, which can worsen the prognosis substantially.[healthcare.siemens.com]
  • Even in these high-risk groups, surgery may be warranted because the long-term prognosis is fairly good provided the patients survive the postoperative period. 4 23 24 Sublobar resections could be considered in patients with a major co-morbidity at the[doi.org]

Etiology

  • The etiology of PG appears to be variable among patients, as about a half of the reported cases are associated with systemic disease such as inflammatory bowel disease, rheumatoid arthritis, or myeloproliferative disorders, while the other half seem to[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Pathophysiology

  • Given the known factors of pathophysiology and anatomy, a number of preventive measures have been tested to reduce intercostal nerve damage.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • We report this case in order to analyze the relationship between the operation and cerebral hernia and find a way to prevent this consequence in the future.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The UW Medicine and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance lung cancer program includes prevention, early detection and surveillance and the most effective treatments available for those with a diagnosis.[uwmedicine.org]
