Respiratory failure of Williams-Campbell syndrome is effectively treated by noninvasive positive pressure ventilation. (4/4)

Williams-Campbell syndrome is a rare disease, characterized by a congenital deficiency of cartilage in the fourth to sixth order bronchi, leading to chronic respiratory failure with recurrent pulmonary infections. An effective and practical treatment has not yet been established. A 31-year-old man who was diagnosed as Williams-Campbell syndrome by inspiratory and expiratory computed tomography findings developed recurrent pulmonary infections and showed progressive deterioration of dyspnea. Domiciliary NPPV was administered, followed by a dramatic improvement of respiratory failure and a decrease in the episodes of pulmonary infections. NPPV may have an advantage in adults with Williams-Campbell syndrome who have severe respiratory failure and recurrent pulmonary infections.  (+info)

The use of unilateral pulmonary artery occlusion (UPAO) test for the preoperative evaluation of pneumonectomy was reported in adult patients. On the contrary, in infants, no strategies have yet been recommended to predict hemodynamics after pneumonectomy, nor has use of the UPAO test been reported. We describe the first case of infant with abnormal pulmonary circulation in whom successful pneumonectomy was performed after preoperative evaluation using UPAO test. Right pneumonectomy was planned for an 8-month-old girl, because of decreased right pulmonary function, high risk of pneumothorax, and impaired left lung expansion due to overexpansion caused by severe left bronchial stenosis and bronchomalacia ...

On the one month CT scan controls we only found one case of type 1 endoleak in the patient from group 2 that underwent TEVAR with chimney graft to the superior mesenteric artery and that is currently under surveillance.. Discussion. Spinal cord ischemia is a devastating complication of proximal aortic surgery. It is associated with higher operative mortality and has serious long-term repercussions on quality of life and socio-economic status.. Retrospective studies have shown that the major predictor of spinal cord dysfunction is the aortic extension involved in open surgery or endovascular treatment.10. SCI after OR of thoracoabdominal aneurysms has been investigated and its prevalence ranges from 3.8%11 to 13.2%12 in centers with extensive experience. Nevertheless, it can reach higher rates if we evaluate the results of centers with less experience, in the so called "real world".10,13. In general, the risk is substantially higher in more extensive aneurysms (type 1 and 2 TAAA).. If we consider ...

Background. Anastomotic airway complications (AC) give rise to morbidity and mortality after lung transplantation. A more profound knowledge about the prevalence of AC and the predisposing factors and evolving therapeutic strategies for AC is needed.. Methods. We conducted a retrospective analysis of 808 consecutive bronchial anastomoses. A patient-dependent score (PDS) and Shennib and Massard anastomosis classification was allocated to each AC. We aimed to define risk factors associated with AC and to develop a model that might predict the most appropriate treatment strategy for AC.. Results. The overall prevalence of AC was 10%. After multivariate analysis, significant risk factors for AC were receptor age (OR (95%CI) 3.69 (1.37-9.93)), pre-operative TLC (OR 2.06 (1.01-4.22)), microbiological colonization (OR 2.34 (1.30-4.23)), right-sided anastomosis (OR 2.07 (1.16-3.70)) and Pa02/FiO2 ,300 (OR 2.19 (1.17-4.10)). No specific treatment was initiated in 59 AC and a spontaneous resolution was ...

tracheal and bronchial stenosis, and the only chance she had was to do reconstructive surgery. The chances were not great that the surgery would work, but without it she was certain to die from the stenosis at some point fairly soon. They told us to pray and to just love her. I prefer reality to sugar-coating, but it was a terrifying thing to hear them say. I guess I figured that if they were telling us to trust in God, rather than to trust in the doctors, then it must be really, really bad. And it certainly turned out to be. I wish my faith in either God or the doctors could have saved her. But at least I listened to their advice about loving her. I held her every moment I could. I just wish now, knowing how it ended, that I had put off the surgery a little bit longer. I wish Id have had even more time to love her and hold her. (D-Day means Diagnosis Day). D-Day. -. The word.

Studies have demonstrated that poor assessment and planning contribute to airway complications and that current airway assessment strategies have a poor diagnostic accuracy in predicting difficult intubation in the general population. Patients with head and neck pathology are at higher risk for difficulties during airway management and are more likely to need emergency surgical access. Therefore, thorough assessment of this group of patients is mandatory. The addition of virtual endoscopy (VE) to clinical history and computerised tomography imaging has been shown to improve diagnostic accuracy for supraglottic, glottic and infraglottic lesions and has a positive influence in formulating a more cautious and thorough airway management strategy in this high-risk group of patients ...
