A developmental anomaly in which a mass of nonfunctioning lung tissue lacks normal connection with the tracheobroncheal tree and receives an anomalous blood supply originating from the descending thoracic or abdominal aorta. The mass may be extralobar, i.e., completely separated from normally connected lung, or intralobar, i.e., partly surrounded by normal lung.
Abnormal accumulation of serous fluid in two or more fetal compartments, such as SKIN; PLEURA; PERICARDIUM; PLACENTA; PERITONEUM; AMNIOTIC FLUID. General fetal EDEMA may be of non-immunologic origin, or of immunologic origin as in the case of ERYTHROBLASTOSIS FETALIS.
A chronic lung disease developed after OXYGEN INHALATION THERAPY or mechanical ventilation (VENTILATION, MECHANICAL) usually occurring in certain premature infants (INFANT, PREMATURE) or newborn infants with respiratory distress syndrome (RESPIRATORY DISTRESS SYNDROME, NEWBORN). Histologically, it is characterized by the unusual abnormalities of the bronchioles, such as METAPLASIA, decrease in alveolar number, and formation of CYSTS.

Radiography of blood vessels after injection of a contrast medium.
A method of delineating blood vessels by subtracting a tissue background image from an image of tissue plus intravascular contrast material that attenuates the X-ray photons. The background image is determined from a digitized image taken a few moments before injection of the contrast material. The resulting angiogram is a high-contrast image of the vessel. This subtraction technique allows extraction of a high-intensity signal from the superimposed background information. The image is thus the result of the differential absorption of X-rays by different tissues.

The presence of methemoglobin in the blood, resulting in cyanosis. A small amount of methemoglobin is present in the blood normally, but injury or toxic agents convert a larger proportion of hemoglobin into methemoglobin, which does not function reversibly as an oxygen carrier. Methemoglobinemia may be due to a defect in the enzyme NADH methemoglobin reductase (an autosomal recessive trait) or to an abnormality in hemoglobin M (an autosomal dominant trait).

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)

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)

A case of extralobar pulmonary sequestration associated with congental pulmonary valve stenosis is reported in this article. Extralobar pulmonary sequestration is a type of congenital pulmonary developmental malformation defined as an isolated cystic solid mass with unbroken and separate pleural investment and a systemic arterial supply, and no communication with the normal bronchial tree. After diagnosis was confirmed with CT angiography operation was performed under extracorporeal circulation. At surgery patent oval foramen was found and pulmonary valve was stenotic with malformation of four valve leaflets and a mass in left thoracic cavity was confirmed to be pulmonary sequestration through pathologic examination. Surgical effect was satisfied and the patient recovered well. No abnormalities was found at followup after 12 months. It is important for infant with congenital heart disease to take CT angiography check and surgical treatment remains the preferred method for extralobar pulmonary ...

Pulmonary sequestration is an embryonic mass of lung tissue that has no identifiable bronchial communication and that receives its blood supply from 1 or more anomalous systemic arteries. Multiple feeding vessels may be present.
OBJECTIVES: This study described the characteristics of the systemic arterial supply of pulmonary sequestration (PS) in an attempt to better distinguish PS from other acquired lesions. METHODS: We identified 25 patients hospitalized at the Peking Union Medical College Hospital during January 2013 to December 2015 with the assistance of medical catalogers. Twenty-three patients with a definite diagnosis of pulmonary sequestration clinically or pathologically were included in the study. The medical records, imaging information, and pathological data were reviewed retrospectively. The general characteristics of the patients and the features of the anomalous arteries were summarized. RESULTS: Aberrant arterial supply of PS was found in all 23 (100%) cases. Among them, twenty patients received surgery, including 14 (70%) with aberrant arterial supply found before surgery, and the other 6 (30%) found during surgery. Nineteen (82.6%) patients had a single systematic arterial supply, with a median ...

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:. ...

Overview. Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) is one of a spectrum of congenital pulmonary lesions commonly seen by the pediatric surgeon. CCAM is characterized by a lack of normal alveolarization with an increased number of terminal bronchioles that are cystic in nature. These cystic lesions can range from less than 1 mm in size to greater than 10cm. Based upon the size of the lesions, CCAMs can be described as macrocystic (lesions greater than 5.0cm) or microcystic radiographically. While the abnormal bronchioles do not participate in normal gas exchange, they maintain their connection with the normal tracheobronchial tree.1 This communication can lead to overinflation during aggressive attempts at resuscitation in the neonate. Additionally, inadequate clearing of normal respiratory bacterial pathogen may lead to recurrent pneumonias.1 The latter is the usual delayed presentation of children with CCAM not diagnosed prenatally or in infancy. Unlike bronchopulmonary sequestration ...

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 ...

Diaphragmatic hernia- Diaphragmatic hernia is associated with various chromosomal abnctmalities including trisomies 13, 18 and 21. The reported incidence of chromosomal anomalies in prenatal series is 20-30%. Other associated abnormalities include CHD (9-23%), neural tube defects (28%) and spinal defects. US may reveal polyhydramnios and visualization of abdominal viscera within the thorax. A unilateral pleural effusion may be present. Characteristically, a fluid filled mass is seen behind the left atrium and ventricle, mediastinal shift is variable. Real time sonography may reveal bowel peristalsis within the thorax. Solid organs such as the spleen and liver may herniate into the thorax mimicking a solid lung or intrathoracic mass. A clue to liver herniation may be the presence of the gallbladder within the thorax. An associated finding is a reduction in abdominal circumference.

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 ...

Prenatal diagnosis has transformed the outcome of fetuses with airway obstruction. Thorough evaluation of prenatal imaging allows for categorizing fetuses with airway compromise into those who will require a special mode of delivery and those who can be delivered without any special resources. The ex utero intrapartum treatment (EXIT) approach allows accessing the airway while the fetus is still attached to placental support. This permits the fetal airway to be secured in an elective, controlled manner. Once adequate ventilation has been established, the fetus is taken off placental support. The indications for an EXIT procedure have grown over time and now include a myriad of conditions, including cervical lymphangiomas, cervical teratomas, large congenital lung malformations, and congenital high airway obstruction syndrome (CHAOS). ...

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.

If youre feeling unsettled after a loss, give us a call. Sometimes it helps to sort through any questions you may have about a loss. Sometimes we can offer options you may not be aware of (for example, just sampling a lung mass with a small incision to see if it was cancer after all). Sometimes, a complete autopsy will be more helpful to ensure peace of mind. And sometimes, its the talking that helps - it may become clear that going back to the clinician for a discussion will be enough to get your questions answered. You dont have to decide beforehand. You may know youre ready to request an autopsy; or you may just have an unsettling feeling that you need some more information. Were experienced talking with you wherever your starting point may be. While we wont make the decision for you, we will listen to you and provide sound medical options for you to consider. Back to top of page. ...
