A form of pneumoconiosis caused by inhalation of asbestos fibers which elicit potent inflammatory responses in the parenchyma of the lung. The disease is characterized by interstitial fibrosis of the lung, varying from scattered sites to extensive scarring of the alveolar interstitium.
The thin serous membrane enveloping the lungs (LUNG) and lining the THORACIC CAVITY. Pleura consist of two layers, the inner visceral pleura lying next to the pulmonary parenchyma and the outer parietal pleura. Between the two layers is the PLEURAL CAVITY which contains a thin film of liquid.
Presence of fluid in the pleural cavity resulting from excessive transudation or exudation from the pleural surfaces. It is a sign of disease and not a diagnosis in itself.
Neoplasms of the thin serous membrane that envelopes the lungs and lines the thoracic cavity. Pleural neoplasms are exceedingly rare and are usually not diagnosed until they are advanced because in the early stages they produce no symptoms.
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the pleural cavity.
INFLAMMATION of PLEURA, the lining of the LUNG. When PARIETAL PLEURA is involved, there is pleuritic CHEST PAIN.
Endoscopes for examining the pleural cavity.
A tumor derived from mesothelial tissue (peritoneum, pleura, pericardium). It appears as broad sheets of cells, with some regions containing spindle-shaped, sarcoma-like cells and other regions showing adenomatous patterns. Pleural mesotheliomas have been linked to exposure to asbestos. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Asbestos. Fibrous incombustible mineral composed of magnesium and calcium silicates with or without other elements. It is relatively inert chemically and used in thermal insulation and fireproofing. Inhalation of dust causes asbestosis and later lung and gastrointestinal neoplasms.
Presence of fluid in the PLEURAL CAVITY as a complication of malignant disease. Malignant pleural effusions often contain actual malignant cells.
Tuberculosis of the serous membrane lining the thoracic cavity and surrounding the lungs.
Pathological processes involving any part of the LUNG.

Magnetic resonance appearance of asbestos-related benign and malignant pleural diseases. (1/296)

OBJECTIVES: This study describes the magnetic resonance findings of benign and malignant pleural diseases in asbestos-exposed subjects. METHODS: Thirty patients with a history of asbestos exposure and pleural lesions in chest X-rays and computed tomography scans were examined with a 0.5- and a 1.5-T magnetic resonance unit. The examination protocol included cardiac-gated proton density and T2-weighted images, unenhanced and enhanced (Gd-DTPA; 0.1 mmol/ kg) T1-weighted images in the axial plane and sometimes in another orthogonal plane (sagittal or coronal or both). All the magnetic resonance images were reviewed by 3 experienced observers, who visually evaluated morphologic features, signal intensity, and contrast enhancement of pleural lesions. The diagnosis was established by means of percutaneous biopsy, thoracotomy, and combined clinical and radiological follow-up for at least 3 years. RESULTS: Eighteen patients affected with multiple pleural plaques showed low signal intensity on both unenhanced and enhanced T1-weighted and proton density and T2-weighted images. In 2 of these patients an acute pleural effusion was observed. All the malignant lesions (11 mesotheliomas) and a solitary benign pleural plaque revealed high signal intensity on the proton density and T2-weighted images and inhomogeneous contrast enhancement in the postcontrast T1-weighted images. The sensitivity, specificity, and diagnostic accuracy of the magnetic resonance imaging in classifying a lesion as suggestive of malignancy were 100%, 95% and 97%, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The results point out 2 magnetic resonance signal intensity patterns for asbestos-related pleural lesions: (i) low-signal intensity on unenhanced and enhanced T1-weighted and proton density and T2-weighted images for benign plaques and (ii) nonhomogeneous hyperintensity in T2-weighted and enhanced T1-weighted images for malignant mesotheliomas.  (+info)

Suction curettage for removal of retained intrathoracic blood clots and pleural lesions. (2/296)

OBJECTIVE: To develop a thoracoscopic technique for correcting and/or removing an intrathoracic disease process using our existing operating room equipment and without a "small thoracotomy." METHODS AND PROCEDURES: Fifty-eight patients from October 1994 to April 1998 were prospectively studied. All were undergoing procedures involving the removal of a suspected benign (or infectious) pleural process or a retained blood clot. Three or four thoracic ports were used in all cases. Straight and curved suction curettage cannulae (with finger valve attachment) ranging from 8 to 16 French were available for use. Intermittent variable suction (between zero and 60 mm Hg) was used in all cases. Dependent upon the size and adherence of the lesion to be removed, the pressure was determined by the surgeon and regulated by the circulating nurse in the room. In each case, a trap system was used for retrieval of the specimen. One lung ventilation was used in every case, and when suction was used one of the ports was kept "open" to allow room air to enter the chest cavity. RESULTS: All patients in our series had their procedures completed without the need for any kind of open thoracotomy. Pre and postoperative diagnosis concurred in all 10 patients, and no complications occurred (specifically, no injury to the lung tissue or chest wall structures). Operative time ranged from 45 minutes to 180 minutes with a mean of 75 minutes. In all cases of a hemothorax, a cell saver system was used for an average of one unit of blood autotransfused per case. CONCLUSIONS: New techniques do not always require the purchase of new equipment. Tight hospital budgets are forcing surgeons to rely on redefining uses of instrumentation already available in solving surgical problems. We believe that the use of this instrumentation will provide another avenue for surgeons to successfully complete a procedure thoracoscopically without the need for a thoracotomy. It is through multidisciplinary conferences such as the Society of Laparoendoscopic Surgeons that ideas such as this are propagated.  (+info)

Increased serum concentrations of growth factor receptors and Neu in workers previously exposed to asbestos. (3/296)

OBJECTIVES: Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) and oncogene Neu belong to a family of growth factor receptors which may play a part in carcinogenesis. Although increased serum concentrations of Neu and EGFR have been shown in several patients with asbestosis who later developed cancer, serum concentrations have not been studied in workers exposed in the past to asbestos but without asbestos related diseases. METHODS: Serum concentrations of secreted growth factor receptors were studied in 300 workers exposed in the past to asbestos and the results were compared with those of 70 controls. RESULTS: In the controls 4.3% (3/70) had EGFR values > 912 units/ml, compared with 39% (117/299) of the exposed group (p < 0.001). The difference in high values was even more pronounced for Neu with 4.3% of controls having Neu values > 2580 fmol/ml compared with 72% (216/299) of the exposed workers (p < 0.001). Pleural plaques predicted lower serum concentrations of EGFR but not lower Neu concentrations, and this finding remained significant after adjustment for age, exposure time, smoking, and time from initial exposure. CONCLUSIONS: Enhanced secretion of EGFR and Neu was found in a large cohort of retired asbestos workers with a wide range of exposure and latency periods. They did not have asbestosis or cancer and their EGFR values were higher in those without plaques. Further studies are needed to confirm our results, to determine the source of the secreted growth factor receptors, and to study their possible value as risk factors in the development of cancer.  (+info)

Carboxyterminal propeptide of type I procollagen in ELF: elevation in asbestosis, but not in pleural plaque disease. (4/296)

Markers of collagen metabolism may possibly be used in the assessment of pulmonary involvement in asbestosis-related pulmonary diseases. In this study the levels of the carboxyterminal propeptide of type I procollagen (PICP) and the aminoterminal propeptide of type III procollagen (PIIINP) were evaluated in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF), epithelial lining fluid (ELF) and serum from patients with asbestos related pulmonary and pleural involvement. Forty-two consecutive patients with occupational exposure to asbestos fibres, who underwent bronchoscopy and bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) at the time of the diagnosis were investigated. Five patients were diagnosed as having asbestosis, while 37 showed no parenchymal involvement. Of the latter group, 25 had pleural plaques, while 12 had no detectable changes in chest radiographs. The patients were followed-up for an average of 7 yrs. The PICP in BALF and ELF was detectable in all patients with asbestosis and in 8/37 subjects without parenchymal involvement. The levels of PICP in BALF and ELF were significantly higher in the asbestosis group compared to the patients without asbestosis (9.8+/-1.8 microg x L(-1) versus 0.6+/-1.3 microg x L(-1), p<0.001 and 488.9+/-208.8 microg x L(-1) versus 22.6+/-50.6 microg x L(-1), p<0.001, respectively). Only 1 patient with asbestosis and 3 patients without parenchymal involvement had detectable levels of PIIINP in BALF. The serum levels of PICP and PIIINP did not differ between the patients with asbestosis and those with exposure to asbestos fibres without asbestosis and were within the normal range. None of the 37 patients exposed to asbestos fibres without parenchymal involvement at the baseline developed asbestosis during the follow-up period of 7 yrs. In conclusion, the data show that the carboxyterminal propeptide of procollagen type I, but not the aminoterminal propeptide of type III procollagen is highly elevated in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid and epithelial lining fluid in patients with asbestosis, but not in those without parenchymal involvement. This suggests that the determination of carboxyterminal propeptide of procollagen type I in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid could be used as a marker of parenchymal involvement in patients exposed to asbestos fibres.  (+info)

Familial extensive idiopathic bilateral pleural fibrosis. (5/296)

The authors report three sisters with bilateral isolated apical pleural fibrosis of unknown origin, which did not respond to empirical antituberculosis therapy and oral corticosteroids. The disease evolved in an unrelenting fashion producing pleural fibrosis at the lung bases and leading to the death of two sisters and to lung transplantation in the other one. There was no history of other familial disease or consanguinity. The particular features of these cases and the differences from other reports of apparently cryptogenic pleural fibrosis are outlined.  (+info)

Mortality due to asbestos-related causes among railway carriage construction and repair workers. (6/296)

The objective of this study was to further clarify the cancer risk associated with asbestos exposure in railway carriage construction and repair. The cohort included 734 subjects employed between 1 January 1945 and 31 December 1969. Vital status was ascertained at 31 December 1997. Mortality was investigated in the time span 1970-97. Forty-two subjects (6%) were lost to follow-up and eight causes of death (4%) could not be ascertained. The overall mortality was not above the expected value. Among neoplastic diseases, excesses were observed for lung standardized mortality ratio (SMR) = 124; 90% confidence interval (CI) = 87-172; 26 obs), pleura (SMR = 1,327; CI = 523-2,790; 5 obs), larynx (SMR = 240; CI = 95-505; 5 obs), liver (SMR = 241; CI = 126-420; 9 obs), pancreas (SMR = 224; CI = 98-443; 6 obs) and multiple myeloma (SMR = 429; CI = 117-1,109; 3 obs). The observed excess of lung and pleural neoplasms can be causally related to asbestos exposure in the manufacture of railway carriages. A causal role of asbestos exposure in the raised SMRs from laryngeal and pancreatic neoplasms and multiple myeloma cannot be conclusively proven.  (+info)

High-resolution computed tomography in cases with environmental exposure to asbestos in Turkey. (7/296)

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Although all parts of the lung can be affected as a consequence of asbestos exposure, most CT protocols tend to scan only the middle and lower parts of the thorax. The aim of this study was to investigate parenchymal and pleural lesions of persons exposed to environmental asbestos, using a high-resolution computed tomography (HRCT) protocol scanning the whole thorax. METHODS: We analyzed the chest radiographs and HRCT scans of 26 patients who presented bilaterally with multiple pleural plaques related to environmental asbestos exposure. RESULTS: Twenty-four cases (92%) had an abnormal HRCT suggestive of asbestosis. Apart from common HRCT changes related to asbestosis, we detected apical pleural thickening (APT) in 9 cases as well as a coarse honeycomb pattern adjacent to APT in 7 of these cases. Cavitary lesions due to pulmonary tuberculosis were observed on HRCT scans from 4 patients in total. Neither apical pulmonary fibrosis nor cavitary lesions were visible on chest radiographs. CONCLUSIONS: We suggest that the HRCT protocol for examining asbestos-exposed individuals with pleural plaques on chest X-rays should include the whole thorax, since the asbestos-related pathologies may involve all parts of the lung.  (+info)

Pulmonary calcifications: a review. (8/296)

Pulmonary calcification is a common asymptomatic finding, usually discovered on routine chest X-ray or at autopsy. Pulmonary calcifications are caused mainly by two mechanisms: the dystrophic form and the metastatic form (1). Despite the different aetiologies, the pulmonary function and clinical manifestations are quite similar in both forms. We present a review of the clinical and radiology findings of the different aspects of pulmonary calcifications according to its pathogenesis and its anatomic distribution: parenchymal, lymphe node and pleural.  (+info)

Background: Zonal aggregates of elastic fibres (zonal elastosis) and intraalveolar collagenosis with septal elastosis are histologic components of subpleural fibroelastosis of idiopathic pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis (IPPFE). Zonal elastosis is considered to result from alveolar collapse, but this mechanism has not been fully justified. Methods: We immunohistochemically attempted to identify epithelial cells in zonal elastosis of 10 patients with IPPFE. The thickness of the zonal elastosis in relation to the total thickness of the fibroelastosis was examined to estimate the influence of zonal elastosis on the occurrence and development of IPPFE. Results: In 9 of the 10 patients, multi-cytokeratin-positive cells were found lining the inner surface of slit-like spaces embedded in the zonal elastosis. Zonal elastosis was predominant when fibroelastosis was , 1 mm thick but less predominant when it was ≥1 mm. Conclusion: The zonal elastosis was proven to result from alveolar collapse, which ...
H&E, 40×, 100×).. Discussion. This report describes two cases in which clinical presentation, imaging, and histopathological features are compatible with IPPFE. The recent update of the international multidisciplinary classification of the IIPs recognizes IPPFE as a specific rare IIP.6. A review of the available data shows that these two patients were older than the reported median age of 57 years at diagnosis.5 However, the absence of smoking habits is in line with the previous reports.1, 2, 5. There is little information and insufficient knowledge regarding the etiology of IPPFE and most cases are considered idiopathic, although a few cases have underlying diseases or conditions such as collagen vascular diseases, bone-marrow transplantation,4 or lung transplantation.7 Genetic predisposition is probably another factor. Frankel et al. reported two cases believed to have familial/genetic lung disease.2 Reddy et al. reported that just over half of the patients studied had recurrent lower ...
However suggestive the clinical and imaging presentation of PPFE is, other aetiologies of pleural thickening should be considered [31, 32], including: tuberculosis and tuberculosis pneumothorax treatment; aspergillosis [1, 33], although aspergillosis may complicate the course of established PPFE [33] as shown in one patient in [1]; other infections; connective tissue disease with rheumatoid arthritis lupus and ankylosing spondylitis [31]; ulcerative colitis [26]; haemothorax; a history of coronary artery bypass graft [34]; exposure to asbestos [35]; and rare or orphan pleural disease [32]. In most of these conditions, pleural thickening has a predilection to involve the lung bases or to predominate on one side, as opposed to PPFE. The differential diagnosis is usually resolved by: reviewing earlier imaging; searching for extrathoracic involvement that is typically absent in PPFE; appropriate laboratory tests for tuberculosis, aspergillosis, other infections and connective tissue diseases; and ...

A significant number of cases of pleural effusion are undiagnosed after simple diagnostic pleural aspiration.2 Pooled data from a total of 1370 patients suggests that a positive cytological diagnosis of malignancy may be obtained from a single diagnostic pleural aspiration in 60% of cases.2 A second sample modestly increases the diagnostic yield (by around 15%) but a third sample is non-contributory.2 Pleural fluid cytology has an even poorer diagnostic yield in mesothelioma, in which a positive result is obtained in only 32% of cases.9. Traditionally, blind pleural biopsy (non-image-guided pleural biopsy, also known as closed pleural biopsy or Abrams needle biopsy) has been the next step in investigating cytology negative exudative pleural effusions of unknown cause. This procedure is relatively cheap and readily accessible and is still used in many institutions. However, there is increasing evidence that blind pleural biopsy is less sensitive in the diagnosis of malignant pleural disease ...
Pleural effusion is another condition associated with pleural disease. This is the build-up of fluid within the pleural cavity.. A pleural effusion can be either transudate or exudate. Transudate pleural effusion is due to something other than the pleura, such as congestive heart failure. Exudate pleural effusion is caused by an affliction of the pleural lining itself.. As stated above, there is always a small amount - no more than 15 ml. - of lymphatic fluid present in the pleural cavity in healthy individuals. Normally, this fluid is drained and replenished by the lymphatic system. However, if fluid production is excessive, and/or something affects the lymphatic systems ability to drain said fluids, a build-up will result, placing the same type of pressure on the lungs and restricting their ability to expand.. Pus, the byproduct of bacterial infection, can also build up in the pleural cavity. Known as empyema, it is actually the by-product of the immune response known as inflammation - ...

Here, we present a 67-year-old Japanese man who developed insidious-onset nephrotic syndrome. He had a history of occupational asbestos exposure for about 8 years during his 30s, and was found to have pleural effusion 3 years before his present illness. At that time, repeated cytology testing of his pleural effusion found no malignant cells, and pleural biopsy found fibrous pleuritis without evidence of malignant mesothelioma. Percutaneous kidney biopsy found massive deposits of AA-type amyloid in the glomeruli, small arteries, and medulla. Computed tomography showed a calcified mass in the right lower lung that was positive for 67Ga uptake, but transbronchial lung biopsy and bronchoalveolar lavage found no evidence of malignancy. He was diagnosed with rounded atelectasis and diffuse pleural thickening. As these benign asbestos-related diseases have no standard treatment, we administered low-dose angiotensin II receptor blocker to preserve kidney function. Unfortunately, his nephrotic syndrome ...

Donkey Pulmonary Fibrosis (DPF) is a spontaneous syndrome of aged donkeys with high prevalence (35%). No previous detailed characterisation of DPF has been performed. We sought to determine the similarities of DPF to recognised patterns of human pulmonary fibrosis.. Whole lungs were collected from 32 aged donkeys at routine necropsy. Gross examination revealed pulmonary fibrosis in 19 donkeys (DPF cases), while 13 (controls) had grossly normal lungs. Eighteen whole inflated ex vivo lungs (11 DPF, 7 controls) were imaged with high resolution computed tomography (HRCT), while the remainder were sectioned and photographed. Tissue samples were collected from all lungs for histopathological evaluation using a standardised protocol. HRCT images and histology sections were reviewed independently and blindly. Lung tissue was analysed for herpes virus, fungal hyphae, mycobacteria and dust content.. Ten of 19 DPF lungs were categorised as being consistent with pleuroparenchymal fibroelastosis (PPFE) ...

Bernard Douglas (Bernie) Banton AM (13 October 1946 - 27 November 2007) was an Australian social justice campaigner. He was the widely recognised face of the legal and political campaign to achieve compensation for the many sufferers of asbestos-related conditions, which they contracted after either working for the company James Hardie or being exposed to James Hardie Industries products. Bernie himself suffered from asbestosis, Asbestos-Related Pleural Disease (ARPD) and then finally peritoneal mesothelioma. These conditions required him to carry an oxygen tank wherever he went. The 2009 book Killer Company details Bantons fight against James Hardie. Banton brought an action against Amaca Pty Ltd before the Dust Diseases Tribunal of New South Wales. In October 2007, in the midst of the 2007 federal election campaign, Banton expressed his disgust at Minister for Health Tony Abbott, later the 28th Prime Minister of Australia calling him a gutless creep for not attending an arranged meeting at ...
Pneumothorax: a collection of air within the pleural cavity, arising either from the outside or from the lung. Pneumothoraces may be traumatic, iatrogenic, or spontaneous. A tension pneumothorax is a particular type of pneumothorax where the air may enter (though a defect of the chest wall, lung, or airways) on inspiration, but cannot exit on expiration. Each breath increases the amount of trapped air in the chest cavity, leading to further lung compression. This is often an urgent situation and may progress to a medical emergency if there is compromise of the venous return to the heart causing hypotension and rarely shock ...

The 20-minute post-test, which was composed of 40 video clips, was given after the lecture. The 40 video clips included 20 real and 20 simulated, randomly allocated, video clips. The post-test used binary (true/false) questions about the presence or absence of A-lines, B-lines and lung sliding in each video clip, hence there were three questions per video clip. Therefore, a total of 120 questions were included in post-test: 60 for the real video clips and 60 for the simulated ones. To evaluate the educational effect of the simulated video clips, two groups (real video clips [RG] vs. simulated video clips [SG]) in the answer sheet of each participant were classified depending on the kind of video in the post-test. Twenty points was the perfect score of A-lines, B-lines, and lung sliding in each group. The total score of correct answers was calculated by summing the correct score for A-lines, B-lines, and lung sliding of each group (perfect score=60 points; 20 points each for A-lines, B-lines, and ...

A method of treating peripheral bronchopleural fistula using a collagen matrix hemostatic pad. The method includes the following steps: (1) selecting a peripheral bronchopleural fistula; (2) selecting a collagen matrix hemostatic pad having sufficient size to cover the fistula; (3) aligning the collagen matrix hemostatic pad completely over the fistula; and (4) securing the collagen matrix hemostatic pad to the tissue sorrounding the fistula.
Pleural mesothelioma may start simple pleural disease, such as the pleura or pleural calcification thickening of mountain and it is not uncommon that they diagnose pleural thickening, pleural calcification, or pleural topic. These diseases have a severe pleural disease, they may be ignored, and subsequently these pleural disease may lead to the development of pleural mesothelioma. Pleural disease may not be serious, but they disturb the normal functioning of the lungs and should be dealt with appropriately. If the patients diagnosis of pleural gives the history of asbestos exposure, even if only for a short period of pleural mesothelioma diagnosis should be considered. ...

Summary Sir, this patient has a pleural effusion. On examination of the chest, there is reduced chest expansion on the right side. The percussion note is stony dull, and there is reduced air entry and vocal resonance for one half of the posterior hemithorax. The patient is not in respiratory distress, and the trachea is central. With regards to underlying aetiology, there is no palpable lymphadenopathy, clubbing or tar staining of the fingers to suggest a mitotic process. I would like to measure the patients temperature to look for evidence of infection, although there are no crepitations to suggest this. There is no arthropathy or rash which would suggest underlying autoimmune disease. Possible differential diagnoses for dullness with reduced air entry include pleural thickening, asbestos-related pleural disease, primary mitotic processes of the pleura, lung collapse - although I would expect tracheal deviation towards the affected side, consolidation and previous lobectomy / pneumonectomy - ...
The pleura is a thin tissue covered by a layer of cells (mesothelial cells) that surrounds the lungs and lines the inside of the chest wall. C. Pleural plaques Pleural plaques is a medical condition as a result of exposure to asbestos that lead to accumulated plagues within the pleural cavity(a). Many diseases such as …. ...
RATIONALE Intrapleural tissue plasminogen activator (tPA)/deoxyribonuclease (DNase) therapy for pleural infection given at the time of diagnosis has been shown to significantly improve radiological outcomes. Published cases are limited to only a single randomized controlled trial and a few case reports. OBJECTIVES Multinational observation series to evaluate the pragmatic real-life application of tPA/DNase treatment for pleural infection in a large cohort of unselected patients. METHODS All patients from eight centers who received intrapleural tPA/DNase for pleural infection between January 2010 and September 2013 were included. Measured outcomes included treatment success at 30 days, volume of pleural fluid drained, improvement in radiographic pleural opacity and inflammatory markers, need for surgery, and adverse events. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS Of 107 patients treated, the majority (92.3%) were successfully managed without the need for surgical intervention. No patients died as a result
The case presented here appears of clinical relevance for at least two reasons: first, the gastrohepatopleural fistula associated to the hepatic abscess, and second, the relatively prolonged interval between the onset of symptoms and the final diagnosis. The gastropleural fistula is an uncommon condition and is facilitated by the corrosive action of the gastric juices (3, 4). The diagnosis of gastropleural fistula is usually made with contrast radiology, upper GI endoscopy, or at operation. The prognosis of a fistula extending from the upper GI tract to the pleura seems to depend upon the delay from diagnosis to surgical intervention due to the high risk of diverticulitis. Thus, it is important to take into account this condition early in the patients management (2, 5). Gastropleural fistula should be considered in the differential diagnosis of thoracic empyema, especially when there is a longstanding history of peptic ulceration (1). Bini et al (4) described a case of spontaneous ...

What we see is pleural thickening (curved arrow), blunting of the costophrenic angle and a peripheral rounded lesion (blue arrow). It is slightly ill-defined, which favours a pulmonary origin (option 3) over loculated pleural fluid (option 2). Aspiration of blood (option 1) should occur in the right side and gives an air-space pattern.. The right answer is option 4. There is a thing called satisfaction of search (Muppet calls it satisfaction of sex), meaning that, even though we see the abnormality, we have to look elsewhere. And, when we look, we discover that the left hilum is markedly descended (red arrow) and the major fissure is displaced medially and downward (white arrows), both findings indicating marked loss of volume of left lower lobe.. When we put together a peripheral rounded lesion, loss of volume and pleural thickening, rounded atelectasis immediately comes to mind and it is the correct diagnosis in this case. The typical findings of this condition are confirmed with CT (Fig ...

Liz Darlison, Mesothelioma UK Director of Services and Consultant Nurse, added: Were delighted to be working with Pat Stone Meso Support and the National Lung Cancer Forum for Nurses (NLCFN) to offer this grant for such an innovative study. Were excited to hear about the results of the study which we hope will inform current diagnostic processesand perhaps lessen the need for surgery for people with suspected mesothelioma.. Graham Pound from Pat Stone Meso Support said: Pat Stone Meso Support is extremely proud to be associated with this opportunity which has the potential to further the understanding and care of sufferers of this cancer which continues to take the lives of substantially more people than are killed on our roads each year. A pilot study at MIDRU with 15 patients found significant differences is chest wall motion and has shown to be a promising tool to help diagnose the cause of pleural disease such as the differences between mesothelioma and benign pleural ...
Those interested in research in Respiratory Sciences will find diverse activities in several pre-clinical and clinical departments. John Scott Haldane and Charles Douglas were founders of modern respiratory research in Oxford in the first thirty years of the twentieth century, based heavily upon addressing taxing public health issues of the day in mines and sewers, in warfare, during diving, and at high altitude. Their work laid the basis of our molecular understanding of gas exchange in the body and the neurological regulation of breathing. Clinical research focused on patients with respiratory disorders is now conducted mainly in a dedicated respiratory unit, the Oxford Centre for Respiratory Medicine, located at the Churchill Hospital. Its main areas of research have been disorders of breathing during sleep (mainly obstructive sleep apnoea), pleural diseases (mainly empyema and malignant effusions), lung infections (particularly host susceptibility to pneumococcal disease), the physiology of ...
Objectives: The ability to measure temporal trends in disease incidence is important, but valid methods are needed. This study investigates UK trends during 1996-2005 in work-related skin and respiratory diseases including non-malignant pleural disease, asthma, mesothelioma and pneumoconiosis and the potential for bias when using surveillance systems for this purpose.. Methods: The volunteer reporters in three surveillance schemes were specialist physicians for skin diseases, specialist physicians for respiratory diseases and occupational physicians, respectively, who provided monthly reports of new cases of disease which they considered work related. Poisson regression models were used to investigate variation by calendar year (trend), season and reporter characteristics. Separately, temporal patterns in the probabilities of non-response and zero reports were investigated. Annual changes in disease incidences were compared between reporter groups.. Results: There was little evidence of change ...

Why is this patients sputum filled with pus ...
Hilum - rings or tram lines suggest bronchitis. Round opacity adjacent to and larger than ring suggests vascular prominence due to left to right shunt.. Silhouette sign - where heart border and/or diaphragm obscured in lower zone due to consolidation in lower lobe (left or right).. Effusion - vertical line at costophrenic angle.. Round pneumonia - will have air bronchograms, compare mass.. Collapse vs consolidation - sharp lower border is the fissure so if deviated then collapse.. Pneumothorax - lucency without clear edge may suggest lung hyperinflation eg bronchial atresia. If edge projects below diaphragm then likely to be skin fold!. Foreign body - get expiratory film, which will enhance air trapping.. ...
A 50-year-old man, 2 years post-heart transplantation, presented with progressive mild shortness of breath on follow-up. Echocardiography revealed normal left ventricular (LV) and right ventricular (RV) systolic functions, no valve abnormalities, and an echogenic mass (A [blue arrow]) encroaching the LV apex (Online Video 1). Chest radiographs confirmed the new mass in the left costophrenic angle, comparing immediately after transplantation (B) and 2 years after transplantation (C [blue arrow]).. Cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) imaging revealed a large mass (D [blue arrow]) outside the LV apex, with signal intensities consistent with fat, without suspicious invasive features (Online Video 2). Detailed assessment demonstrated that this fat originated in the abdominal cavity, passing through a lateral diaphragmatic hernia (E [yellow arrow];Online Video 3). This, in turn, was secondary to the bridging ventricular assist device before transplantation, best shown on a pre-transplantation computed ...

25] It seems to me that the most obvious source of guidance as to the appropriate level of award in the present case is to be found in cases where provisional damages were awarded for pleural plaques before the decision of the House of Lords in Rothwell. [26] There is, I was informed by counsel, no reported Scottish case in which provisional damages have been awarded for pleural plaques. In Nicol v Scottish Power plc 1998 SLT 822 solatium of £13,500 (current value about £21,300) was awarded to a 52 year old scaffolder with asymptomatic pleural plaques; he had a 3 per cent increased risk of developing mesothelioma and a 10 per cent heightened chance of developing cancer. He was breathless and had chest pain. His breathlessness had caused him to develop anxiety about the possibility of contracting asbestosis. It is important to appreciate that this was a full and final award of damages and not a provisional award. The decision is, therefore, of little assistance for present purposes. I mention ...
Vincent Asa Mutai Rob caught a chronic lung infection in May 2007 that not only claimed his left lung, but has also subjected him to seven (7) major thoracic surgeries, persistent respiratory system discomfort and pain.. He remains unwell and in need of urgent medical attention despite all the surgeries and the numerous prolonged hospital admissions. The current condition is called Persistent BronchoPleural Fistula post Pneumonectomy with Empyema and due to this; he now suffers great respiratory discomfort including difficulty in breathing, occasional shortness of breath, persistent cough, inability to lie on his right side, constrained physical activity, fatigue and chest pains. He also has a wound called an Eloesser Window below his left arm to facilitate drainage of pus from the pleural cavity where the left lung was. His remaining right lung remains at risk of similar damage due to the existing communication with the infected left chest cavity. Signs of this damage have been noted in latest ...
In their CMAJ article, Thomas and colleagues1 describe a patient with pneumonia associated with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in whom lung ultrasonography showed multifocal B-lines, pleural thickening and subpleural consolidation. Based on these findings, the authors proposed that lung ultrasonography may be useful in the workup of patients with suspected COVID-19, even though differentiating between different causes of viral pneumonia is not possible. These comments require further clarification.. First, the sonographic findings described here are highly nonspecific: they are found not only in other viral pneumonias but also in nonviral pneumonias and a wide spectrum of noninfectious processes, including interstitial lung disease and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).2. Second and consequently, the nature of their patients sonographic findings must be further qualified, in particular the presence of multifocal B-lines. If by this term 3 or more B-lines per acoustic window is ...
After the procedure the size of the air leak seemed to be reduced and clamping was attempted. As there was no evidence of worsening pneumothorax, progressive subcutaneous air development or dyspnea, the chest tube was removed.. Patient heath status slowly improved and he was discharged from hospital. On follow up, metastasis were found on both lungs and the patient died 8 months later.. Discussion. The authors describe a case of a persistent air-leak after pulmonary resection. Air leaks are a common problem often associated with prolonged hospital stays, infectious and cardiopulmonary complications, and they occasionally require reoperation3 and/or bronchoscopic techniques.. The patient presented had several risk factors for the development of an air-leak since he had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease,10 and of particular relevance in this case, the presence of significant pleural adhesions.5,11 It is most likely that the pleural adhesions were related to his known asbestos exposure during ...

Osteopontin increased with increasing age and several aspects of asbestos exposure, without differences related to the presence of pleural plaques; the explanatory variables with a significant independent influence on OPN were length of exposure (positive correlation) and time elapsed since last exposure (positive correlation); however, since asbestos in lung tissue tends to wane over time, OPN should decrease (rather than increase) with time since last exposure, and, therefore, OPN cannot be a reliable biomarker of either exposure or the presence of pleural plaques ...

The proportions of cases with occupational or environmental/familial exposures were similar between PEM and PLM cases (50% occupational and 6% environmental), instead the prevalence of subjects with both occupational and environmental/familial exposure was more than doubled among PEM cases (6.4% vs. 2.7%, P = 0.059). PEM cases showed a higher proportion of females (48% vs. 36%) and a higher proportion of subjects with asbestosis and with pleural plaques at the CT scan. No significant differences between PEM and PLM cases were observed regarding age at diagnosis, smoking habits, and level of diagnostic certainty.. ...
