The role of fetal surgery in life threatening anomalies. (1/40)

The development and evolution of fetal surgery and the recognition of the fetus as a patient came from two sources. First, were those obstetricians and perinatologists who detected life threatening anomalies before birth, and re-described a hidden mortality arising from death in utero. Ultrasonography, color Doppler ultrasound and ultrafast fetal magnetic resonance imaging have since enhanced the accuracy of prenatal evaluation. Second, were those pediatricians responsible for treating newborn infants with extremely serious problems, and that appeared untreatable, although, it was believed that they could have been treated at an earlier stage of development. After the natural history of several correctable lesions had been determined and the selection criteria for intervention developed, fetal surgery emerged as a means of improving the overall morbidity and mortality rates.  (+info)

Late-onset congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation of the lung. Embryology, clinical symptomatology, diagnostic procedures, therapeutic approach and clinical follow-up. (2/40)

BACKGROUND: Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation of the lung (CCAM) is an embryonic developmental anomaly of an unknown etiology usually diagnosed antenatally by imaging techniques. A minority of cases may not be identified by prenatal imaging techniques and may go unnoticed for the first 6 months of their extrauterine life. Due to its rarity, physicians are unlikely to suspect the condition. OBJECTIVES: To highlight the embryology, clinical symptomatology, diagnostic procedures, therapeutic approach and clinical follow-up of a series of 12 patients with late-onset CCAM. METHODS: An observational study which offers the description of the clinical presentation, diagnostic methods, treatment and follow-up of 12 patients with late-onset CCAM. SETTING: A 600-bed teaching hospital in a reference area of 350,000 inhabitants. PATIENTS: 12 patients from 1983 to 1999. RESULTS: Twelve diagnosed cases of late-onset CCAM. Mean age at diagnosis: 6.7 years (range: 6 months to 23 years). CLINICAL PRESENTATION: 9 out of 12 (75%) with repeated lung infections, 2 out of 12 (16%) chance finding, and 1 case (8%) with pneumothorax. On pathological examination, 7 were found to be CCAM type I and 4 CCAM type II according to Stocker's classification; 1 patient is currently awaiting surgery. The diagnostic method of choice nowadays is a computed tomography (CT) scan performed in the 7 more recent cases; in the former 5 cases an isotopic lung scan was done (and in 2 of them a bronchography was also performed). TREATMENT: 11 patients were operated: 8 lobectomies, 2 segmentectomies and 1 localized resection. Mean follow-up: 8 years (range: 6 months to 16 years). COMPLICATIONS: One reintervention due to a reappearance of the lesion in the patient who underwent localized resection of the CCAM. No cases of malignancy were found. CONCLUSIONS: Late-onset CCAM is an infrequent illness which requires a high level of clinical suspicion. It usually presents in the form of repeated infections. The most frequent pathological forms are type I and II (Stocker). The diagnostic method of choice is the CT scan. The recommended treatment is radical surgery of the lesion once diagnosis has been established. Malignancy and relapses are very infrequent when radical surgery is not postponed.  (+info)

Fetal therapy: state of the art. (3/40)

OBJECTIVE: To review our experience with the use of sonography in evaluating potential candidates for in utero fetal therapy performed at The Center for Fetal Diagnosis and Treatment at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. METHODS: This review article was designed to discuss open hysterotomy for the 4 fetal surgical procedures that have been performed at our institution. The procedures included surgical repair of myelomeningocele, resection of sacrococcygeal teratoma in fetuses with nonimmune hydrops, resection of an enlarging congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation that is not amenable to thoracoamniotic shunting, and tracheal clip occlusion for severe left congenital diaphragmatic hernia. RESULTS: For each surgical procedure, the use of sonography in the prenatal diagnosis of the congenital anomaly was detailed, as were indications for surgery and surgical procedures, postoperative monitoring and finally delivery, postnatal treatment, and long-term follow-up. Three of the procedures have been reasonably successful with rather dramatic results in some cases such that these techniques are still being performed. The 1 exception was open hysterotomy for the tracheal clip procedure for congenital diaphragmatic hernia, which has been abandoned. CONCLUSIONS: Fetal therapy is a rapidly evolving specialty, which is being practiced at several centers in this country. Sonography is an integral part of this specialty practice and has been used extensively in the diagnosis of some congenital anomalies that have debilitating or lethal consequences for the fetus. Technologic improvements in both sonography and magnetic resonance imaging have assisted tremendously in the many advances herein reported in the diagnosis and treatment of the above-described 4 congenital anomalies.  (+info)

Spontaneous improvement of intrathoracic masses diagnosed in utero. (4/40)

The diagnosis and pregnancy outcome for 14 fetuses with sonographically detected chest masses were reviewed retrospectively. Six lesions became smaller or less apparent during gestation or resolved between antenatal and perinatal imaging studies; these included all three types of cystic adenomatoid malformation (CAM), as well as one case of pulmonary sequestration (PS). This information is extremely important in counseling patients in the second trimester who are considering termination of pregnancy. The poor prognosis traditionally assigned to type II and type III CAM needs changing to reflect the phenomenon of improvement with excellent long-term outcomes. Sonographic indicators of poor outcome were polyhydramnios, hydrops or marked cardiac deviation.  (+info)

Volume contrast imaging: A new approach to identify fetal thoracic structures. (5/40)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the potential of volume contrast imaging for evaluation of fetal intrathoracic structures. METHODS: Volume contrast imaging is a new ultrasonographic method that increases the contrast between tissues. It consists of a 5- to 10-mm-thick slice-shaped volume image projected on a 2-dimensional screen. The rendering process applied on the slice smoothens the speckle pattern of the image by filling up the gaps with tissue information from the adjacent layers. To evaluate the potential of volume contrast imaging for enhancing the contrast between fetal lungs and surrounding tissues, we compared the ability of volume contrast imaging and conventional ultrasonography to image the fetal thymus in 50 controls. We also applied volume contrast imaging to prenatal imaging of 6 thoracic abnormalities (2 left congenital diaphragmatic hernias, 1 right diaphragmatic hernia, 2 congenital adenomatoid lung malformations, and 1 lung sequestration). RESULTS: In controls, the thymus was identified in all cases by volume contrast imaging and in 42 cases (84%) by conventional 2-dimensional ultrasonography. Clear images of macrocystic and microcystic congenital adenomatoid malformations were obtained by volume contrast imaging, which provided precise contouring of the lesions. In cases with congenital diaphragmatic hernias, volume contrast imaging provided clear images of the limits of the lungs ipsilateral to the hernia. CONCLUSIONS: Volume contrast imaging may enhance the contrast between fetal lungs and surrounding organs and can be applied to prenatal imaging of intrathoracic structures in cases with thoracic fetal abnormalities.  (+info)

Prenatal diagnosis of congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation. (6/40)

Congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation (CCAM) of the lung is a rare pulmonary lesion. The prognosis is variable ranging from perinatal death to spontaneous in utero regression, with no neonatal morbidity. We present a case of CCAM diagnosed at 23 weeks' gestation using results of prenatal sonograms. Both prenatal Two-Dimensional and Three-Dimensional sonograms revealed multiple cystic lesions at the right lower lung field. Regular serial antenatal sonograms revealed the fetus had persistent right lower lung multicyst lesions but had no hydrops fetalis or associated congenital anomalies. The results of the antenatal 50 g glucose diabetic screen at 24 weeks' gestation were normal. A live male baby was vaginally delivered smoothly at 40 weeks' gestation. Body weight was 4170 g. Apgar scores were 7 at 1 minute and 8 at 5 minutes. The newborn had no signs of respiratory distress at birth. Postnatal chest computed tomography (CT) also revealed multiple fluid-filled cysts in the right lower lobe compatible with congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation. Because of the potential risk of perinatal death, repeated lung infection and malignant change of CCAM, the newborn received right lower lung lobectomy 1 week after delivery. Pathology confirmed the diagnosis of CCAM type II. The recovery was smooth postoperatively and the baby still receives regular follow-up. We emphasize the importance of prenatal diagnosis of CCAM and early removal of the congenital cystic lesions of the lung to achieve a good outcome.  (+info)

Fetal lung dysplasia: clinical outcome based on a new classification system. (7/40)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the clinical application of a new classification system of fetal lung anomalies. METHODS: Forty fetal diagnoses of lung lesions were analyzed according to our proposed classification system in which each lung component is considered using two-dimensional ultrasound and color and power Doppler technology. Medical files, natural history and neonatal follow-up were recorded. RESULTS: Type I dysplasia: Four cases of agenesis of the lung were diagnosed, three with right lung agenesis and one with left lung agenesis. Three of the four patients elected to undergo termination of pregnancy (TOP). The surviving fetus was diagnosed with scimitar syndrome and postnatal embolization of the aberrant vessel was performed. Type II dysplasia: One case of normal lung with abnormal systemic feeding artery was diagnosed with normal neonatal outcome. Type III dysplasia: Abnormal lung with abnormal vascularity was found in 14 cases, presenting in most cases as echogenic lung masses. Seven were supradiaphragmatic, six subdiaphragmatic and one case was of undetermined position. All 14 fetuses showed an aberrant systemic artery emerging from the aorta. Abnormal venous drainage could be identified in only five (36%) of the fetuses: three had prominent azygos vein, one showed drainage to the inferior vena cava and one had multiple intrapulmonary veins forming a huge arteriovenous (A-V) shunt. Two cases in this group underwent TOP, the case with A-V shunt following development of hydrops, and one on maternal request. The remaining 12 fetuses (86%) survived and were alive and well at the time of writing; only one of them needed immediate postnatal embolization of the bilateral aberrant feeding arteries. Type IV dysplasia: Abnormal lung with no vascular abnormality was diagnosed in 20 fetuses. In this group there was one case of intrauterine fetal death, two patients underwent TOP, one complicated with hydrops and one on maternal request. The survival rate in this group was 85%. Only two cases needed immediate surgical repair. Type V miscellaneous dysplasia: One fetus demonstrated echogenic lung with split notochord syndrome and survived. CONCLUSIONS: Congenital bronchopulmonary and related vascular anomalies can be categorized using the new classification system. This new approach enabled prenatal evaluation of each lung component and facilitated cogent management of the fetus with congenital lung dysplasia.  (+info)

Unexpected intrauterine death following resolution of hydrops fetalis after betamethasone treatment in a fetus with a large cystic adenomatoid malformation of the lung. (8/40)

Without intervention, the development of hydrops fetalis secondary to cystic adenomatoid malformation of the lung (CAML) implies a 100% mortality rate. Conversely, four CAML cases with in-utero resolution of hydrops fetalis after prenatal betamethasone therapy with good clinical outcome have been reported in the literature. The mechanism is speculated to be the effect of corticosteroid in improving lung maturation. Here we present another CAML case with resolution of hydrops fetalis after prenatal betamethasone therapy but which was followed by later intrauterine death. We speculate that the resolution of the CAML lesion itself may be more important in determining the clinical outcome than the resolution of hydrops. The association between prenatal betamethasone therapy and resolution of hydrops may be related to a different mechanism other than improvement of lung maturation.  (+info)

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

The incidence of congenital disorders of the respiratory tract is low and their effects are particularly seen during the first year of life. Congenital disorders can be subdivided into abnormalities of the thorax, specifically the diaphragm (hernia of the diaphragm), the lung (lung sequestration, cystic adenomatoid malformation, bronchogenic cyst, foregut cyst), the blood supply (aberrant vascularisation, double arch of the aorta), the airways (tracheal rings, tracheomalacia, tracheal atresia) and the larynx and oral cavity. Investigation and management of these diseases is usually organised in specialised centres.. Primary ciliary dyskinesia is an inherited disorder characterised by specific ultrastructural defects of cilia that are associated with impaired ciliary motion and mucociliary clearance. It results in ineffective clearance of mucous secretions and inhaled particles, including bacteria. The disease is characterised by recurrent or persistent rhinitis, sinusitis, otitis media and ...

Dear Editor, Richardson and colleagues have described the case of a 33 year old male who had coinfection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and tuberculosis (TB) and developed cystic lesions in the lung after initiation of antiretroviral therapy.[1] The authors have explained these findings as being part of the immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome (IRIS). IRIS or the paradoxical reaction is believed to represent an enhanced immunologic response to mycobacterial antigens after initiation of antiretroviral therapy (ART) that results in a stronger inflammatory response at sites of TB infection.[2] Clinically apparent paradoxical reactions have been reported to occur among 29-36% of patients with HIV-TB coinfection who are initiated on antitubercular treatment followed by ART. Alveolitis, intrathoracic lymph nodal enlargement and pleural effusions are the most commonly described intrathoracic manifestations with radiological deterioration being apparent in 46% of such patients.[3] ...
Thirty six (70.6%) and fifteen (29.4%) fetuses had left and right sided CDH respectively. Seven patients chose termination of their pregnancies (13.7%). Statistically significant differences were found between survival and non-survival groups in terms of parity, median gestational week at diagnosis, polyhydroamniosis rate, CDH type, stomach position, liver position, median LHR, o/e LHR, o/e TFLV, median 5th minute Apgar score and neonatal operation rate values (p values were 0.03,,0.001, 0.02, 0.006,,0.001, 0.006,,0.001,,0.001,,0.001, 0.04 and ,0.001 respectively).

Some authors believe the term microcystic serous adenoma is too limiting and that a macrocystic variant of the same neoplasm exists; the term serous cystadenoma is thus used for both morphologic variants.Nevertheless, the term macrocystic serous tumor is useful; these tumors are often misdiagnosed as either mucinous cystic neoplasms or pseudocysts. In fact, some tumors are misclassified even with intraoperative frozen section. Serum tumor markers with macrocystic serous tumors tend to be normal, although CA 125 and CA 19-9 are elevated in the cyst fluid in some of these tumors. The macrocystic variant of serous adenoma consists of a small uni- or bilocular cyst containing a thin wall without any mural nodules; these are indistinguishable from mucinous cystic tumors ...
There have been considerable advances in the clinical and laboratory diagnosis of alloimmune thrombocytopenia (AIT), and its postnatal and antenatal management. The antenatal management of AIT has been particularly problematic, because severe haemorrhage occurs as early as 16 weeks gestation and there is no non-invasive investigation that reliably predicts the severity of AIT in utero. The strategies for antenatal treatment have included the use of serial platelet transfusions that, while effective, are invasive and associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Maternal therapy involving the administration of intravenous immunoglobulin and/or steroids is also effective and associated with fewer risks to the fetus. Significant recent progress has involved refinement of maternal treatment, stratifying it according to the likely severity of AIT based on the history in previous pregnancies. However, the ideal antenatal treatment, which is effective without causing significant side-effects to the

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 ...

The system and method provide a regulated and controlled flow of air to the user ( 105 ) in accordance with the user needs. The invention further discloses a novel small light-weight user interface for replacing prior art breathing masks.
Anne is interested is in the intricate behaviour of complex systems from the dynamics of fluid flows to the deformation of elastic materials, encompassing both curiosity-driven and industrially-relevant phenomena. Laboratory-based research into complex systems is a creative activity as it often reveals unexpected phenomena, whose understanding and interpretation in turn requires mathematical modelling. Current research in her group is focused on the dynamics and instabilities that arise from the displacement of one fluid by another is either rigid or flexible vessels. Applications range from pulmonary airway reopening to enhanced oil recovery applications. One particular interest is the influence of non-uniform vessel geometry on the modes of bubble propagation and liquid recovery. The presence of a fluid interface that is inherently nonlinear means that complex dynamics occur even for slow flows where inertial forces are negligible. Her experimental approach often leads to unexpected ...
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 ...

Pulmonary involvement manifests as cystic lung disease and spontaneous pneumothorax. The cysts are variable in shape and size, but are discrete and thin-walled. Larger cysts are usually multiseptated. The cysts tend to be larger and more numerous in the lower lobes, a distribution that can help differentiate Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome from other causes of multiple cystic lung lesions such as Langerhans cell histiocytosis and lymphangioleiomyomatosis (see below ...
Congenital high airway obstruction syndrome (CHAOS) is a prenatally diagnosed clinical syndrome manifested by the presence of extremely large echogenic lungs, flattened or inverted diaphragms, a dilated tracheobronchial tree, ascites, and other manifestations of nonimmune hydrops due to complete obstruction of the fetal airway (Hedrick et al., 1994). No fetus diagnosed prenatally with CHAOS associated with hydrops and complete airway obstruction has survived without intervention. The exception to this occurs when there is spontaneous perforation of the laryngeal or tracheal atresia, which may occur in up to one-third of cases and results in resolution of the hydrops. ...

Work in the Robert H. Brown Lab explores several topics within pulmonary physiology, with a long-term goal of understanding the structural changes in the lungs that lead to the pathophysiology of lung disease. Our core studies examine the structure-function relationship of pulmonary airways and vessels as well as their role in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and reactive airway disease. Recent research has involved studying the mechanisms and treatment of COPD progression, new methods for treating asthma, and lung inflation and airway hyperresponsiveness. We are also exploring the impact of HIV infection on the etiology of lung disease and the pathophysiologic consequences of lung distention.. Research Areas: asthma, HIV, pulmonary physiology, lung disease, COPD, reactive airway disease ...
Rats fed selenium in a grain diet at concentrations of 3, 5, 7, 10, 20 and 40 parts per million showed toxic effects at all levels of selenium.. Selenium at the concentration of 10 parts per million, or more, with the exception of the 10 parts per million from the selenide, killed most of the animals within the first eight weeks. Lower concentrations of selenium produced chronic symptoms which included a decreased growth rate, a restriction of food consumption, and slight to severe pathological lesions.. Selenium at the concentration of 10 parts per million from the selenide was about half as toxic as the same concentration from wheat and corn.. The outstanding pathological lesion was cirrhosis of the liver, seen in over 70 per cent of the rats surviving more than three months. Among 43 cirrhotic rats surviving 18 months or longer, hepatic cell tumors developed in 11 and marked adenomatoid hyperplasia in four others. Rats dying during the first three months showed a subacute type of liver ...
A 26-week-gestation infant developed cystic lung changes which required lobar resection at 6 weeks of age. Lung histology showed cytomegalovirus (CMV) inclusion bodies. The authors present the radiology and histology images of this case and review the literature regarding congenital CMV infection and cystic lung disease. Lung disease caused by CMV is typically a diffuse pneumonitis. This is the first reported case of congenital CMV infection causing emphysematous lung disease to develop in the neonatal period. The case raises awareness of CMV as a possible cause of cystic lung lesions in newborns. ...

Respiratory epithelial adenomatoid hamartoma (REAH) is a rare and nonneoplastic lesion of upper respiratory tract characterized by an abnormal mixture of tissues which are peculiar to the involved anatomic region. The most common site reported is nasal cavity and its nasopharyngeal origin is extremely rare. The lesion can be confused with a variety of benign and malignant entities. In this article, we report a 22-year-old female case of REAH of posterior nasopharyngeal wall. The clinical and radiological features of the lesion are discussed in the light of literature data. ...
My lab is interested in the normal developmental processes that build the lung and how such processes go awry during lung malformations, injury and tumorigenesis. What is unique about my lab is our effort to develop a series of three-dimensional labeling and imaging methods such as optical projection tomography. We develop these novel methods to address a major challenge in studying the lung - its complex three-dimensional architecture including the tree-like airways and honeycomb-like alveoli, making it difficult to compare structures on conventional two-dimensional sections. Development of the alveolar type 1 cell and bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a major chronic lung disease associated with preterm birth and characterized by alveolar simplification with dysmorphic microvasculature. Current BPD research focuses on myofibroblasts, alveolar type 2 (AT2) cells and the endothelium, but seems to leave out the "elephant in the room", the alveolar type 1 (AT1) cell, ...
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 ...

In this study, we found both in vitro and in vivo that a skewed Th2 environment increased Lfng expression in CD4 T cells. Importantly, Lfng expression exacerbated lung pathology and Th2 immune response during RSV-mediated exacerbation of allergic airway disease by enhancing Dll4-induced Notch activation. These findings are in accordance with previous work demonstrating that Lfng-mediated glycosylation of Notch1 enhances its capacity to be activated by Delta-like Notch ligands (3). Interestingly, a STAT5-dependent mechanism regulated Lfng expression during Th2 differentiation, and, in a positive feedback manner, Lfng further augmented Dll4-induced Notch activation and production of Th2 cytokines.. Mechanisms that regulate the immune response and associated pathology during RSV exacerbation of pulmonary airway disease are largely unknown. RSV exacerbation exploits the allergen-driven Th2 cytokine environment to further enhance Th2 cell development and worsen the inflammatory response. In this ...
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.
inhibitor, just about everyone who responds eventually has the cancer become resistant.. Every treatment is likely to have some side effects, and some can be serious. She may go a very, very long time without it affecting her quality of life or survival. The key question I think needs to be asked is not "should we do nothing or do something?", but rather, "do you want to blow your best options while shes feeling fine and potentially without symptoms for years, or do you want to save your treatments for when you need them?" Its not now or never, but now or later. And how bad would it be if she went on a treatment and had a serious or fatal complication? Fortunately, thats not likely, but its possible to have permanent problems or even die from chemo or tarceva or avastin complications. Its tremendously unfortunate if it happens, but if its a setting of facing an imminent disease-induced problem, thats less of a travesty than if were treating a scan rather than the person..

Control of the volume of surface liquid which covers the pulmonary epithelium is critical for normal mucociliary clearance and for efficient gas exchange. The role that active transepithelial ion transport plays as a driving force for liquid movement across the pulmonary airways is currently under study. We measure the bioelectric properties of isolated bronchi and bronchioles as correlates of active ion transport activity. We then use selective transport inhibitors and stimulators to determine which transport pathways are present and how these processes are regulated. In persons afflicted with cystic fibrosis (CF), a molecular defect in an epithelial chloride channel is present that leads to a myriad of pathological problems, the most critical of which involves secretion of thickened, dehydrated mucus into the airways. A major focus of our research is to determine how such defects in chloride ion transport are mechanistically related to the development of the symptoms observed in cystic ...
In this issue of Oncology, Levy and colleagues provide a comprehensive review of bronchioloalveolar carcinoma [BAC], with a focus on the management of this rare disease, which represents 4% of all lung cancers.[1] The definition of BAC was revised by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 2004, with changes made to the diagnostic criteria and classification.[2] BAC was defined as an adenocarcinoma of the lung that grows in a lepidic fashion along the alveolar septa without invasion of stroma, blood vessels, or pleura. BAC has been sub-classified into three types: nonmucinous, mucinous, and mixed. 1
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 ...
Also referred to as "cystic hygromas" or "lymphangiomas," lymphatic malformations are abnormal growths typically found on a childs head and neck. They are usually noticeable at birth in the form of a swelling, which can range in size from smaller than a quarter to as large as a baseball.. Lymphatic malformations can occur as multiple cysts filled with fluid (microcytic lesions) within the skin and deeper tissues. This leads to swelling and enlargement of the involved structures. Macrocystic lesions typically involve just one or two large, fluid filled sacs that often cause significant enlargement of the surrounding soft tissues.. ...
