Diagnosis of pulmonary sequestration by spiral CT angiography. (1/92)

The diagnosis of pulmonary sequestration traditionally requires arteriography to identify abnormal systemic vessels feeding the abnormal portion of the lung. Non-invasive imaging techniques have recently been used to replace arteriography. Conventional computed tomographic (CT) scanning is, however, at a disadvantage because of its inability to obtain multiplanar images. The combination of slip ring CT scanning and computerised three-dimensional reconstruction (spiral CT angiography) can be used to visualise the anatomical detail of a wide range of vessels within the lung. Four cases of pulmonary sequestration are reported which were successfully diagnosed using spiral CT angiography. Spiral CT scanning allows simultaneous imaging of anomalous vessels and lung parenchyma in a single examination and is particularly useful in the diagnosis and assessment of pulmonary sequestration.  (+info)

Direct intrauterine fetal therapy in a case of bronchopulmonary sequestration associated with non-immune hydrops fetalis. (2/92)

Bronchopulmonary sequestration associated with non-immune hydrops fetalis is generally recognized as a uniformly fatal fetal condition without fetal surgical intervention. We describe here the first case of such a condition treated successfully with direct intrauterine fetal therapy using digoxin and frusemide.  (+info)

Management of antenatally diagnosed pulmonary sequestration associated with congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation. (3/92)

BACKGROUND: Sequestration with associated cystic adenomatoid malformation is rare. A study was undertaken to determine whether pulmonary sequestration associated with congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation has a more favourable natural history than that of sequestration without associated cystic adenomatoid malformation. METHODS: An outline of the postnatal work up leading to the management of extralobar or intralobar pulmonary sequestration with congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation diagnosed antenatally as pulmonary malformation is presented and the indications for surgical intervention are discussed. RESULTS: In five infants in whom an antenatal ultrasound scan had detected a congenital lung malformation at 18-19 weeks gestation a final diagnosis of extralobar or intralobar pulmonary sequestration with congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation was made postnatally. Postnatal ultrasound and computerised axial tomographic scans confirmed the diagnosis of sequestration by delineating anomalous vascular supply. Cystic changes were also observed in the basal area of the sequestration in all patients. Four children remained asymptomatic and one infant presented at 10 months of age with pneumonia. The mean age at surgical resection was 6.8 months (range 2-10). Histopathological examination confirmed intralobar pulmonary sequestration with associated Stocker type 2 congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation in two patients and extralobar pulmonary sequestration with associated Stocker type 2 congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation in three patients. The mean period of follow up was four years (range 1-8). The children remain well and are developing normally. CONCLUSIONS: The importance of seeking an anomalous blood supply in children with congenital lung lesions is emphasised. Pulmonary sequestration and congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation probably share a common embryogenesis despite diverse morphology. The natural history of antenatally diagnosed lung masses is variable. Early postnatal surgical resection of pulmonary sequestration with cystic adenomatoid malformation is recommended. Surgical excision should be conservative, sparing the normal lung parenchyma.  (+info)

A familial case of pulmonary arterial sequestration. (4/92)

The cases of a mother and infant son are reported, both with a rare type of pulmonary sequestration where the arterial supply to the lung arises from the systemic circulation. This is a familial case of arterial sequestration. In both patients, the lung parenchyma was radiologically normal.  (+info)

Primary lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma within an intralobular pulmonary sequestration. (5/92)

A 31-yr-old Chinese female, a nonsmoker, presented with digital clubbing and coughing. Diagnostic evaluation revealed a pulmonary sequestration in the left lower lobe. During surgery a tumour was discovered, which turned out to be a lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma. These tumours are mainly found in Asians, and are associated with the Epstein Barr virus and not with smoking. They are thought to have a better prognosis and to be more chemosensitive. The need for surgical treatment of pulmonary sequestration and the recognition of lymphoepithelioma-like carcinoma as a distinct clinicopathological entity is emphasized.  (+info)

Contrast enhanced MR angiography in pulmonary sequestration. (6/92)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility of contrast enhanced three-dimensional (3D) magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) in identifying the systemic blood supply in pulmonary sequestration. METHODS: Three patients who were suspected of pulmonary sequestration were examined by contrast enhanced 3D MRA. MR images were compared with surgical findings. RESULTS: Contrast enhanced 3D MRA clearly demonstrated systemic arteries from the descending thoracic aorta supplying the basilar segments of the lower lobe in each case. Pulmonary veins from these segments, which drained into the left atrium in two cases, were also detected. MRA images were consistent with those observed in surgery. CONCLUSION: Contrast enhanced 3D MRA allows accurate diagnosis of pulmonary sequestration and may obviate the need for more invasive investigations.  (+info)

Intralobar pulmonary sequestration presenting increased serum CA19-9 and CA125. (7/92)

A 39-year-old man was admitted to our hospital for further evaluation of a consolidated shadow and clarification of the cause of serum tumor marker elevation (CA19-9 496.2 U/ml, CA125 160.6 U/ml). Chest computed tomography revealed a well-defined homogeneous nodule in the left S(10). Angiography showed one aberrant artery, branching from the ascending aorta. Intralobar pulmonary sequestration was diagnosed and the sequestrated lung was resected. Microscopic findings of the sequestrated lung showed a mucus-containing cystically dilated bronchus, which was covered with ciliated cylindrical epithelium. Immunohistochemical staining showed positive staining for CA19-9 and CA125 in both the ciliated cylindrical epithelium and mucus. Serum values of tumor markers returned to their normal range after surgery.  (+info)

Pulmonary sequestration associated by Mycobacterium intracellulare infection. (8/92)

A case of a 29-year-old woman with intralobar pulmonary sequestration infected with Mycobacterium intracellulare is presented. A chest CT scan revealed a density in the posterior segment of the left lower lobe, and an acid-fast bacillus sputum culture yielded Mycobacterium intracellulare. After 3 months of treatment with clarithromycin, streptomycin, rifampicin and ethambutol, the patient underwent partial resection of the left lower lobe. At the 6-month follow-up the patient's clinical status is excellent. A review of the literature revealed only three case reports of pulmonary sequestration associated with Mycobacterium avium-intracellulare complex infection.  (+info)

How cells can respond to different stimuli. Adaptation can mean metaplasia, atrophy, hyperplasia or hypertrophy.. The figure to the right is often used to illustrate how a cell can respond to different stimuli. An "injurious stimulus" can be many things, but most commonly we talk about hypoxia or even anoxia. Hypoxia and anoxia usually come from ischemia, the word for decreased (either partial or total) blood perfusion. Ischemia often occurs because the arterial blood supply to a tissue is blocked, the level of blood in the body is low (anemia) or that the blood is not well enough oxygenated.. No matter what the cause of the ischemia is, the outcome for the cell is the same. Almost every cell needs oxygen to drive the oxidative phosphorylation in the mitochondria to supply the cell with ATP. When oxygen is limited, ATP supply becomes limited, which causes the cell to respond in three ways:. ...

Congenital pulmonary airway malformation (CPAM), formerly known as congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM), is a congenital disorder of the lung similar to bronchopulmonary sequestration. In CPAM, usually an entire lobe of lung is replaced by a non-working cystic piece of abnormal lung tissue. This abnormal tissue will never function as normal lung tissue. The underlying cause for CPAM is unknown. It occurs in approximately 1 in every 30,000 pregnancies. In most cases the outcome of a fetus with CPAM is very good. In rare cases, the cystic mass grows so large as to limit the growth of the surrounding lung and cause pressure against the heart. In these situations, the CPAM can be life-threatening for the fetus. CPAM can be separated into five types, based on clinical and pathologic features. CPAM type 1 is the most common, with large cysts and a good prognosis. CPAM type 2 (with medium-sized cysts) often has a poor prognosis, owing to its frequent association with other significant ...
Congenital lung malformations are rare diseases, characterized by the coexistence in the same individual of normal lung and localized lung malformation. Among these malformations, congenital cystic adenomatoid malformations (CCAM) represent the most important group, with an estimated incidence between 1/11 000 and 1/35 000 births. The precise mechanisms leading to these lung malformations remain poorly understood. This project aims to identify key genetic and/or molecular mechanisms associated with the occurrence of CCAM. CCAMs are collected during postnatal surgical resection. Parental agreement is required. A standardised histologic description of malformations is performed for each sample. Normal lung tissue at the periphery of the malformation is considered as control. Malformations will be analyzed in a systematic way by proteome and transcriptome, after laser microdissection. Somatic genetic abnormalities will also systematically be sought ...

Recurrent pneumonia has been defined as at least 2 pneumonia episodes in 1 year or more than 3 at any time, with radiographic clearing between episodes. The etiology of recurrent pneumonia varies depending upon the location of pneumonia, which can involve a single or various lobes or lung regions. Recurrent pneumonia involving a single lobe or segment is caused by localized pathology, such as local compression, congenital lung malformation, foreign body aspiration, or inflammation; whereas, pneumonias affecting more than one lobe, suggest a more generalized abnormality such as mucociliary (airway) clearance dysfunction, aspiration secondary to swallowing dysfunction or gastroesophageal reflux , immunodeficiency or asthma. Several studies have shown an association between recurrent pneumonia and asthma. Chest x-ray densities during asthma exacerbations may be due to infection, atelectasis or both. During asthma exacerbations, typically from a viral infection, increased airway inflammation leads ...

Congenital Pulmonary Airway Malformation (CPAM), also known as Congenital Cystic Adenomatoid malformation, is a developmental lung abnormality with a highly variable clinical presentation based on size, location, and subtype. Embryologically, CPAM is thought to be due to an overproliferation of primitive bronchioles with a suppression of apoptosis in the early pseudoglandular phase of development [1]. Some investigators consider this to be caused by an arrest in maturation. In a study of nine infants with CPAM, the lesional tissue was stained with CD34 and MIB-1 to assess vascular development and cellular proliferation. Compared to controls, CPAM had asynchronous development showing hypovascularity and a high proliferative index [2]. Typically, there are connections with the main bronchial tree and vascular supply is via the pulmonary circulation. The proximal-distal source of the lesion is thought to give rise to one of three classic subtypes. Type 1 malformations are the most common and have ...

An isolated in situ lung perfusion model was used to assess dopamine clearance by the lungs in 12 dogs. The preparation consisted of a closed perfusion system in situ, in which systemic arterial blood supply was interrupted. Blood flow to the lungs was maintained at presurgery flow rates. The inflow was restricted to the lungs by the pulmonary arteries and outflow was limited to the pulmonary veins. Pulmonary artery pressure, temperature and pO2 were maintained at physiological levels. After confirmation of a stable base line, one of 3 doses (1, 2, or 5 micrograms/kg/min) of dopamine was infused over 30 min to achieve steady-state blood concentrations, then blood samples were drawn at specified times during and after the infusion. Dopamine plasma concentrations were analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection. Dose-dependent disposition of dopamine was observed in both plasma concentration-time profiles and in clearance (20.3 +/- 9.6 ml/min/kg at 5 ...
A physiological well-being monitoring system especially suited for use by the pilot or other aircrew members of a high-performance aircraft such as a tactical aircraft is disclosed. The monitoring arrangement includes non-invasive sensing of arterial blood supply in the cranial adjacent portions of the pilots body through the use of pulsating vascular bed optical signal transmission. The signal transmission is accomplished by way of sensors included in a pilot invisible and non-obstructing modification of, for example, the oxygen mask portion of the pilot life-support apparatus. Use of the physiological monitoring signals to generate alarm or assume control of the aircraft is also disclosed along with representative data associated with the sensed pilot physiological well-being indicators.

Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis (ABPA) is a common but frequently misdiagnosed clinical condition. It is usually diagnosed in patients with a long standing history of asthma. Patients with ABPA can have diverse radiological manifestations. Very rarely, lung masses have been reported. We hereby report a case of ABPA in whom a large symptomatic lung mass was the presenting manifestation leading to consideration of lung cancer as a differential diagnosis. The establishment of ABPA as the underlying diagnosis led to conservative medical treatment which was followed by complete resolution of the mass like opacity. The present case highlights that ABPA should be considered as a differential diagnosis whenever encountering a patient with lung mass and history of asthma ...
Lung lesions are now commonly diagnosed on prenatal ultrasound. As prenatal ultrasound improved the diagnosis of lung lesions in the late 1990s, an effort was made to improve outcomes through fetal treatment centers. Only a few diseases (notably meningomyelocele and twin-twin transfusion) however, showed improved outcomes. Through a high quality trial, we now know that fetal intervention for lung lesions do not improve outcomes. Even for severe cases, such as those with fetal hydrops," results are better with maternal steroids than with fetal surgery. Our focus and efforts are directed toward minimally invasive newborn lung surgery in 2007.. In 2007, Dr. Kathy Graziano performed the first thoracoscopic formal lung lobectomy at Phoenix Childrens Hospital. While partial lung resections have been done for more than a decade, complete removal of the lobe (as required for some congenital lung lesions) had been considered too technically difficult. Newer devices to seal blood vessels allowed the new ...

Intracranial Arterial Reconstruction. Microvascular techniques are utilized in order to prevent Strokes from occurring in patients with certain types of Obstructive Cerebrovascular conditions that do not respond to other therapies. Examples of this include extensive multivessel atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries) that results in decreased blood supply to the Brain. An example of this is Extracranial to Intracranial Arterial Bypass Grafting as illustrated in Figures 5 through 8.. These operations are referred to as Cerebral Revascularization (or Extracranial-Intracranial [EC-IC] Bypass Graft). Patients requiring the reconstruction of the arterial blood supply to their Brain (either to deal with an obstructive blood vessel problem that would lead to Stroke, or where tumor removal requires the sacrifice of a major cerebral artery) will understand the requirement to have a Neurosurgeon with special skills, knowledge and expertise to undertake this extremely delicate task.. Several techniques ...
Study validates SNALP siRNA delivery to liver. When I reviewed last year ALN-VSP02, I was a bit confused about Alnylams choice of a short-circulating C14-PEG-lipid instead of a longer-circulating C18-PEG-lipid. I even thought that there might be a mistake in Alnylams cartoons of the formulations, but my question remained unanswered. Having listened to the recent ThinkEquity presentation by Tekmiras CEO Mark Murray, it is clear to me that this was not a typo: Tekmiras solid cancer candidate TKM-PLK1 is a longer-circulating formulation, and as we know, Tekmira is getting more and more interested in competing with ALN-VSP02 in liver cancer.. Why does C14 vs C18 matter? In short, C14-PEG-lipids are most suited for gene knockdown in normal liver cells, not liver cancer cells. Normal hepatocytes largely derive their blood supply from the portal vein, whereas most liver cancers primarily tap into the arterial blood supply. For this reason, even when addressing tumors in the liver, a more stable ...

Passive, active and physical. Passive targeting relies on the natural distribution pattern of the drug-carrier system. For example, particles 5 m or smaller are readily removed from the blood by macrophages of the Reticulo Endothelial System (RES) when administered systemically. This neutral defense mechanism of the RES thus provides an opportunity to target drug, encapsulated in or conjugated to an appropriate carrier system, to macrophages. Mechanical filtration of large carriers by capillary blockage can also be exploited to target drugs to the lungs by the venous supply and to the organs through the appropriate arterial supply. By controlling the rate of drug release, once can achieve the desired therapeutic action in the targeted organ. Passive targeting also includes delivery of drug-carrier systems directly to a discrete compartment in the body (e.g. different regions of the GI tract, eye, nose, knee joints, lungs, vagina, rectum, respiratory tract, or other). This offers the ...

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is generally associated with blocked arteries of the legs. The blockage most often is the result of a chronic buildup of hard fatty material (atherosclerosis) into the inside lining of the arterial wall of the legs. This ultimately narrows and blocks the flow of blood which carries oxygen and nutrients to the limb. The femoral and popliteal arteries are the major arterial blood supply to the lower extremities and are a common location for atherosclerotic disease to develop.. The presence of atherosclerosis in the leg arteries is a strong indicator that there is also atherosclerosis in the arteries of the heart and brain, because atherosclerosis is a widespread disease of the arteries. Atherosclerosis of the leg arteries may cause a blockage, obstructing blood flow, and potentially result in pain in the leg(s), ulcers or wounds that do not heal, and/or the need for amputation (surgical removal) of a foot or leg. Therefore, PAD has two major complications ...

Hemorrhoids are normal cushions found in the anal canal. They are thought to ease the passage of stool through the canal. When located above the embryological dentate line, hemorrhoids are internal. When found below the dentate line, hemorrhoids are considered to be external. Hemorrhoids are composed of connective tissue and sinusoids containing blood. Hemorrhoids are fed by arteries and drained by veins. The arterial blood supply is based on the superior rectal (hemorrhoidal) artery, a branch of the inferior mesenteric artery, with the middle rectal and inferior rectal arteries supplying the lower anal canal. The venous system generally follows the arterial system, with the submucosal venous plexus above the dentate line draining into the superior rectal veins of the portal venous system. These veins may become varicose, resulting in internal hemorrhoids or "piles." The submucosal plexus below the dentate line drains into the systemic inferior rectal veins, which may become varicose, resulting ...
Formation of an infarct, which is necrosis in tissue due to local ischemia resulting from obstruction of blood circulation, most commonly by a thrombus or embolus. [MeSH] Pathology.-Infarction is a process that may result in ischemic necrosis, usually the consequence of vascular compromise such as occlusion of a feeding pulmonary artery by an embolus (venous infarction is rare but recognized). Necrosis is relatively uncommon because tissue viability is maintained by the bronchial arterial blood supply. Pulmonary infarction may be secondary to a vasculitis (eg, Wegener granulomatosis). Radiographs and CT scans.-A pulmonary infarct is typically triangular or dome-shaped, with the base abutting the pleura and the apex directed toward the hilum (Fig 27). The opacity represents local hemorrhage with or without central tissue necrosis (67,68). [Fleischner Society]. ...

The patient has a rib secondary from an obscure primary. Detailed gastrointestinal tract evaluation and chest evaluation were non-contributory.. Moriwaki has described different types of rib tumours.1 These can be further classified as benign or malignant-the latter are often secondaries from a primary in the lung (35%).2. Micrometastases from gastro-oesophageal malignancy has been reported.1,3 Oesophagogastric malignancy results in micrometastases of ribs in 88% and in the iliac crest in 15%.3 These are independent of the histological type, nodal status, and neoadjuvant therapy.3 Macrometastases is less common.. Yang et al described three sonographic patterns on cross section of abnormal ribs4; ultrasound guided biopsy yields a 100% result without any complications and is an ideal method of confirming the diagnosis.. Management depends on the histopathology and is often directed to the primary site. Large tumours, as in our case, requires surgical resection followed by chemotherapy. The patient ...

N2 - The use of small caliber arteries is probably responsible for the higher hepatic artery thrombosis rate initially reported after living related liver transplantation. We described a two-step strategy generating flow-induced enlargement of a small diameter artery in case of left graft dual arterial supply. The smaller arterial branch was ligated during a laparoscopic first-step procedure inducing a 30% enlargement of the remaining branch. The second-step donor hepatectomy was performed 1 week later using a larger artery for successful vascular anastomosis. The flow-induced enlargement of donor hepatic artery may help to reduce hepatic artery thrombosis risk ...
Definitive histology of the specimen was infiltrating colloid adenocarcinoma with immunophenotype of enteric adenocarcinoma arising from a benign cystic mucoid lesion compatible with bronchogenic cyst. Immunohistochemical staining was positive for cytokinin 20 and CDX 2, and negative for cytokinin 20 and TTF1. Mediastinal lymph nodes were not affected.. The final diagnosis was enteric adenocarcinoma arising from a bronchogenic cyst. No additional lesions were found on colonoscopy and further abdominal exams. Because no signs of disease dissemination were found, no additional therapy was applied. The patient is alive without recurrence of disease 6 months after the surgery.. Bronchogenic cysts are congenital lesions thought to originate from the primitive ventral foregut,2 and are the result of abnormal budding that "pinches off" from the tracheal tree in the stage when bronchial buds develop into the primitive of respiratory tree.9,10 Bronchogenic cysts are relatively rare, with a prevalence of ...

Next the did a CT, then a PET, then a breathing test, and attempted to do a bronchoscopy, but nothing showed in her bronchial tubes. The next step is a needle biopsy. I asked the doctor what the PET scan showed and all he said was the mass was hot. She is in denial and not pushing to get these tests done quickly, just waiting
The arterial supply to the upper limb begins in the chest as the subclavian artery. The right subclavian artery arises from the brachiocephalic trunk, while the left subclavian branches directly off the arch of aorta.
We have demonstrated overall involvement of the gray and white matter in equal proportion similar to the findings of Pomper et al.2 We detected no ACA territory abnormality, despite reports of 6%-86% involvement in 2 other series.2,5 Possible explanations for this include technical factors, because where a lesion involved mainly the MCA territory and extended into the ACA territory it was classified as an MCA lesion. Also, strict adherence to vascular atlas anatomy may not take into account variations in the arterial supply of individuals. Finally, most ACA involvement on MRA was confined to the A1 segment. A patent ACA may protect the distal territory from ischemia via the contralateral ACA supply.. Multifocal lesions were seen in almost all patients with almost half having ,3 areas of abnormal signal intensity. The finding that unilateral abnormalities were more common than bilateral involvement is in contrast to studies of adult PACNS where most patients had bilateral ...

Expression of human keratinocyte growth factor (KGF/FGF-7) was directed to epithelial cells of the developing embryonic lung of transgenic mice disrupting normal pulmonary morphogenesis during the pseudoglandular stage of development. By embryonic day 15.5(E15.5), lungs of transgenic surfactant protein C (SP-C)-KGF mice resembled those of humans with pulmonary cystadenoma. Lungs were cystic, filling the thoracic cavity, and were composed of numerous dilated saccules lined with glycogen-containing columnar epithelial cells. The normal distribution of SP-C proprotein in the distal regions of respiratory tubules was disrupted. Columnar epithelial cells lining the papillary structures stained variably and weakly for this distal respiratory cell marker. Mesenchymal components were preserved in the transgenic mouse lungs, yet the architectural relationship of the epithelium to the mesenchyme was altered. SP-C-KGF transgenic mice failed to survive gestation to term, dying before E17.5. Culturing mouse ...
According to a story on Medical Xpress, a study shows that the use of antidepressants may put women at higher risk of giving birth prematurely. But depression itself doesnt appear to be a risk factor.. The results, reported May 25 online in the journal Epidemiology, found that taking antidepressants during pregnancy significantly increased risk of what is called a late preterm birth. According to Medical Xpress, late preterm birth is defined as at least 34 weeks after gestation but before 37 weeks.. A number of previous studies have linked the use of antidepressants classified as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors by pregnant women with birth defects in their babies, including potentially dangerous heart and lung malformations.. SSRIs include Prozac and Zoloft.. The report quotes researcher Kimberly Yonkers - Yale professor of psychiatry and of obstetrics, gynecology, and reproductive sciences - as saying that several previous studies suggested depression itself might lead to premature ...

The Frank-Starling law of the heart (also known as Starling's law and the Frank-Starling mechanism) represents the relationship between stroke volume and end diastolic volume . The law states that the stroke volume of the heart increases in response to an increase in the volume of blood in the ventricles , before contraction (the end diastolic volume), when all other factors remain constant. As a larger volume of blood flows into the ventricle, the blood stretches the cardiac muscle fibers, leading to an increase in the force of contraction. The Frank-Starling mechanism allows the cardiac output to be synchronized with the venous return, arterial blood supply and humoral length, without depending upon external regulation to make alterations. The physiological importance of the mechanism lies mainly in maintaining left and right ventricular output equality. Physiology The Frank-Starling mechanism occurs as the result of the length-tension relationship observed in skeletal muscles . As a muscle

For several years it was assumed that this increased echogenicity was a normal variant which was likely bowel related and in most cases would disappear by the third trimester. Subsequently reports appeared in the medical literature noting an association of hyperechogenic bowel with a variety of conditions including: cystic fibrosis, karyotypic abnormalities, fetal growth retardation and fetal death. These associations with hyperechogenic bowel will be discussed below. Cystic Fibrosis: Ever since the early reports of the detection of hyperechogenic bowel using ultrasound there have been numerous cases in which cystic fibrosis developed in neonates in which this finding was detected antenatally in fetuses. In the study by Dicke and Crane 13% of the patients in their study with hyperechogenic bowel had cystic fibrosis as compared to .05% expected in the general population. Cystic fibrosis is said to be the most common autosomal recessive disesase affecting Caucasions. The gene responsible for the ...

But he will take the top job under less than ideal circumstances: next January also happens to be when $500 billion in automatic cuts in U.S. defense spending could begin taking place under a legislative process known as "sequestration." Lockheed Martin has warned that if Congress does not avert the cuts, it will be forced to lay off 10,000 employees, or 8% of its workforce. The company already has reduced its staff, including senior management, during the past two years as it seeks to get ahead of leaner Pentagon budgets. Kubasik met with AW&ST Editor-in-Chief Anthony L. Velocci, Jr. and Managing Editor Joseph C. Anselmo at Lockheed Martins headquarters in Bethesda, Md., to discuss his plans to maintain the companys strong profit margins, what he is telling its 29,000 suppliers, and his close oversight of the over-budget F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program..

Abstract: Bronchogenic cysts are rare congenital lesions of the bronchial tree which are mostly asymptomatic. Rarely when the size is large it can compress on the adjacent structures in the mediastinum. We report a rare case of 10 month old baby presented with recurrent lower respiratory tract infection, was suspected to have a pericardial cyst on echocardiography. On further imaging it was confirmed to be a large bronchogenic cyst from the carina compressing on the left atrium and the left bronchus causing congenital lobar emphysema of the left lung. In view of compression of the adjacent structures patient was sent for surgery. Though congenital bronchogenic cysts involving pericardium and intracardiac tissues have been reported but mediastinal bronchogenic cysts compressing on left bronchus causing congenital lobar emphysema have rarely been reported. Key words: Bronchogenic cyst, Congenital lobar emphysema.. ...
Bronchogenic cysts are small, solitary cysts or sinuses, most typically located in the region of the suprasternal notch or over the manubrium. Bronchogenic cysts are formed in the 6th week of gestation from an abnormal budding of the tracheal diverticulum. They are lined by respiratory type (ciliated) epithelium, which is characterized by cilia. Histologically these are also composed of cartilage, smooth muscle, fibrous tissue and mucous glands. These cysts originate from the ventral foregut that forms the respiratory system. These cysts are located close to the trachea or main stem bronchi. Rarely there is communication of the cyst with the tracheobronchial tree. These cysts are found most often in young adults and are rare in infancy. The usual symptoms are the result of compression by the cyst, e.g., difficulty breathing or swallowing, cough, and chest pain. Malignant degeneration has been reported in these cysts on rare occasions. Chest x-rays show a smooth density just in front of the ...
