  • Patients
  • Most recently, a technique to minimize the surgical trauma to the pulmonary vein intima was proposed to improve outcomes in patients with postrepair stenosis. (medscape.com)
  • A prospective multicentre study analysed 532 patients with a first surgical procedure for pulmonary metastases of colorectal carcinoma. (ctsnet.org)
  • As haemodynamically significant carcinoid heart disease may be clinically silent, specific and individualised considerations must be made as to the most appropriate clinical criteria and time point at which surgical valve replacement should be undertaken in patients with carcinoid heart disease. (ctsnet.org)
  • Impact of surgical pulmonary valve replacement on ventricular strain and synchrony in patients with repaired tetralogy of Fallot: a cardiovascular magnetic resonance feature tracking study. (childrenshospital.org)
  • Part VI: Diagnosing and Treating Respiratory Disorders explains how pulmonologists and respiratory therapists treat and work with patients, and it describes common diagnostic tests, including pulmonary function tests and spirometry, blood gases tests, bronchoscopy, chest CT and MRI scans, and others.

  • Breast shape varies among patients, but knowing and understanding the anatomy of the breast (see the image below) ensures safe surgical planning. (medscape.com)
  • symptoms
  • In an effort to relieve these symptoms of pain, a number of surgical techniques for reduction mammaplasty have been described using various pedicles and skin resections. (medscape.com)
  • spirometry
  • For example, recent surgery to the head, chest, stomach or eye regions may be affected by the pressure and heal incorrectly due to a spirometry test conducted shortly after the procedure. (news-medical.net)
  • Similarly to most decisions in healthcare, the final decision as to whether to use spirometry to gather information about the pulmonary function depends on the individual case. (news-medical.net)
  • deficiencies
  • However, the increased susceptibility to infection in infants of very low birth weight is multifactorial and related to both the developmental deficiencies in the innate and adaptive immune systems and a greater likelihood of a critical illness requiring invasive monitoring and procedures. (aappublications.org)
  • Studies have defined the risk factors for the development of pulmonary emboli and have determined the likelihood of death resulting from pulmonary emboli following surgical procedures, genetic disorders, protein deficiencies, and the use oral contraceptives. (kon.org)
  • invasive procedures
  • Neonates are at high risk for health careāˆ’associated infections because of impaired host defense mechanisms, limited amounts of protective endogenous flora on skin and mucosal surfaces at time of birth, reduced barrier function of neonatal skin, the use of invasive procedures and devices, and frequent exposure to broad-spectrum antibiotics. (aappublications.org)
  • chest
  • Pulmonary emboli in athletes may be misdiagnosed because signs such as shortness in breath, rapid heart rate, and chest pain are common occurrences in competing athletes. (kon.org)
  • technique
  • With the improvements in surgical technique and critical care, there is a push to do a primary complete repair for these defects at younger and younger ages. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • reduction
  • According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), more than 153,087 breast reduction procedures were performed in 2007 up from 47,874 in 1997. (medscape.com)
  • Despite
  • In March 2015, two women alleged in a federal lawsuit Brook Reynolds et al v. Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. et al Case No. 3:15-cv-397, Northern District of Ohio, Western Division that their Implanon device migrated and couldn't be located by doctors despite surgical attempts.

  • study
  • This study discussed the leading causes of pulmonary emboli and determined whether or not they related to one another in the athletic population. (kon.org)
  • This study compared the leading causes of pulmonary emboli in the athletic population and determined what predisposed them to this pathology. (kon.org)
  • found
  • By day 38-40, the reabsorption is complete and 4 distinct pulmonary vein ostia are found on the posterior wall of the fully formed left atrium. (medscape.com)
