Chemoembolization of the lung improves tumor control in a rat model. (1/294)

PURPOSE: The novel method of organ-specific drug application we present here is unilateral chemoembolization of the lung by injecting the pulmonary artery with degradable starch microspheres and cytotoxic drugs to improve tumor control in lung metastases. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: In a solitary metastasis rat model (CC531 adenocarcinoma), we studied the clinical and histological tumor response as well as subacute toxicity of the lung. Fourteen days after tumor induction, animals were randomized into five groups. Groups I and II served as controls. Group III received carboplatin i.v. (45 mg/kg). Isolated lung perfusion with buffered starch solution and carboplatin (15 mg/kg) was installed in group IV. Chemoembolization with carboplatin (15 mg/kg) was performed in group V. RESULTS: Seven days later, the difference in the tumor volume before and after treatment was +422 mm(3) (+/-226) in group I, +697 mm(3) (+/-423) in group II, +70 mm(3) (+/-31) in group III, -8 mm(3) (+/-17) in group IV, and -17 mm(3) (+/-16) in group V (P < 0.05 groups IV and V versus groups I, II, and III). No pleural spread was observed in groups IV and V. Histologically, the area of tumor necrosis was largest in group IV. Mild alveolar cell hyperplasia, pulmonary edema, and hemorrhage without subacute fibrotic changes were noted in all groups. CONCLUSION: This is the first study to perform chemoembolization of the lung. Compared with i.v. therapy, chemoembolization was more effective without serious toxicity. Its efficacy was comparable with that of isolated lung perfusion but less stressful for a possible clinical application.  (+info)

Noninvasive ventilation for chest wall and neuromuscular disorders. (2/294)

Neuromuscular and chest wall disorders are individually uncommon but together form an important group of conditions that can lead to chronic ventilatory failure. This is best recognised in scoliosis, kyphosis, following a thoracoplasty, in muscular dystrophies, such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), and myotonic dystrophy, after poliomyelitis and with motor neurone disease (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis). If bulbar function is impaired, tracheostomy ventilation may be required, but in other situations, noninvasive ventilation is preferable. Positive pressure techniques using nasal and face masks are usually the first choice, but negative pressure ventilation is an alternative. There are no randomised-controlled trials regarding the indications for initiating noninvasive ventilation, but this is usually provided if there are symptoms due to nocturnal hypoventilation or right heart failure in the presence of a raised carbon dioxide tension in arterial blood (Pa,CO2) either at night or, more usually, in the daytime as well. There is no evidence that "prophylactic" ventilatory support is of benefit if this is provided before ventilatory failure has appeared. Careful selection of patients is required, especially in the presence of progressive neuromuscular disorders such as DMD and motor neurone disease. There are no randomised-controlled trials concerning the outcome of noninvasive ventilation in these conditions, but studies have shown an improved quality of life, physical activity and haemodynamics, normalisation of blood gases and slight improvement in other physiological measures, such as the vital capacity and maximal mouth pressures. Survival in chest wall disorders is approximately 90% at 1 yr and 80% at 5 yrs, and similar figures have been obtained in nonprogressive neuromuscular conditions. If, however, the underlying disorder is deteriorating, particularly if it involves the bulbar muscles, it may limit survival despite the provision of adequate noninvasive ventilatory support.  (+info)

Physiological characterization of variability in response to lung volume reduction surgery. (3/294)

This paper examines potential physiological mechanisms responsible for improvement after lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS). In 25 patients (63 +/- 9 yr; 11 men, 14 women), spirometry [forced expiratory volume in 1 s (FEV(1)) and forced vital capacity (FVC)], lung volumes [residual volume (RV) and total lung capacity (TLC)], small airway resistance, recoil pressures, and respiratory muscle contractility (RMC) were measured before and 4-6 mo after LVRS. Data were interpreted to assess how changes in each component of lung mechanics affect overall function. Among responders (DeltaFEV(1) > or = 12%; 150 ml), improvement was primarily due to an increase in FVC, not to FEV(1)-to-FVC ratio. Among nonresponders, FEV(1), FVC, and RV/TLC did not change after surgery, although recoil pressure increased in both groups. Both groups experienced a reduction in RMC after LVRS. In conclusion, LVRS improves function in emphysema by resizing the lung relative to the chest wall by reducing RV. LVRS does not change airway resistance but decreases RMC, which attenuates the potential benefits of LVRS that are generated by reducing RV/TLC. Among nonresponders, recoil pressure increased out of proportion to reduced volume, such that no increase in vital capacity or improvement in FEV(1) occurred.  (+info)

Effect of gravity and posture on lung mechanics. (4/294)

The volume-pressure relationship of the lung was studied in six subjects on changing the gravity vector during parabolic flights and body posture. Lung recoil pressure decreased by approximately 2.7 cmH(2)O going from 1 to 0 vertical acceleration (G(z)), whereas it increased by approximately 3.5 cmH(2)O in 30 degrees tilted head-up and supine postures. No substantial change was found going from 1 to 1.8 G(z). Matching the changes in volume-pressure relationships of the lung and chest wall (previous data), results in a decrease in functional respiratory capacity of approximately 580 ml at 0 G(z) relative to 1 G(z) and of approximately 1,200 ml going to supine posture. Microgravity causes a decrease in lung and chest wall recoil pressures as it removes most of the distortion of lung parenchyma and thorax induced by changing gravity field and/or posture. Hypergravity does not greatly affect respiratory mechanics, suggesting that mechanical distortion is close to maximum already at 1 G(z). The end-expiratory volume during quiet breathing corresponds to the mechanical functional residual capacity in each condition.  (+info)

Chest wall kinematic determinants of diaphragm length by optoelectronic plethysmography and ultrasonography. (5/294)

To estimate diaphragm fiber length from thoracoabdominal configuration, we measured axial motion of the right-sided area of apposition by ultrasonography and volumes displaced by chest wall compartments [pulmonary, abdominal rib cage, and abdomen (Vab)] by optoelectronic plethysmography in four normal men during quiet breathing and incremental exercise without and with expiratory flow limitation. Points at the cephalic area of apposition border were digitized from echo images and mapped into three-dimensional space, and the axial distance from the xyphoidal transverse plane (D(ap)) was measured simultaneously with the volumes. Linear regression analysis between changes (Delta) in D(ap) and the measured volume changes under all conditions showed that 1) DeltaD(ap) was linearly related more to DeltaVab than to changes in pulmonary and abdominal rib cage volumes; and 2) this was highly repeatable between measures. Multiple stepwise regression analysis showed that DeltaVab accounted for 89-96% of the variability of DeltaD(ap), whereas the rib cage compartments added <1%. We conclude that, under conditions of quiet breathing and exercise, with and without expiratory flow limitation, instantaneous DeltaD(ap) can be estimated from DeltaVab.  (+info)

Comparison of proportional assist ventilation and pressure support ventilation in chronic respiratory failure due to neuromuscular and chest wall deformity. (6/294)

BACKGROUND: The physiological and symptomatic effects of proportional assist ventilation (PAV) and pressure support ventilation (PSV) were compared in stable awake patients with neuromuscular and chest wall deformity (NMCWD). METHODS: Oxygen saturation (SaO(2)), transcutaneous carbon dioxide (TcCO(2)), minute ventilation (VE), tidal volume (VT), respiratory rate (RR), and diaphragm electromyography (EMGdi) were measured in 15 patients during both modes. Subjective effort of breathing and synchrony with the ventilator were assessed using visual analogue scales. RESULTS: Three of 15 patients failed to trigger the ventilator in either mode and were excluded. In the 12 remaining patients there were similar improvements in SaO(2), TcCO(2), VE, VT, and RR during both modes. The mean (SD) percentage fall in EMGdi was greater during PSV (-80.5 (10.7)%) than during PAV (-41.3 (35.2)%; p= 0.01). Effort of breathing (p=0.004) and synchrony with the ventilator (p=0.004) were enhanced more with PSV than with PAV. CONCLUSION: Both PSV and PAV produced similar improvements in physiological parameters. However, greater diaphragm unloading was observed with PSV than with PAV, associated with greater symptomatic benefit. These findings suggest that tolerance to PAV may be compromised in patients with NMCWD.  (+info)

Giant cell tumor originating from the anterior arc of the rib. (7/294)

We report a case of giant cell tumor originating from the anterior arc of the rib. The tumor and the surrounding chest wall were completely resected, and the chest wall defect was covered with Marlex mesh. Giant cell tumor of the bone usually originates from the epiphysis of long bones. Even when the tumor occur in ribs, it usually occur in the posterior aspect. However, giant cell tumor should be included in the differential diagnosis of a tumor originating from the anterior arc of the ribs.  (+info)

Spectral characteristics of airway opening and chest wall tidal flows in spontaneously breathing preterm infants. (8/294)

We compared the harmonic content of tidal flows measured simultaneously at the mouth and chest wall in spontaneously breathing very low birth weight infants (n = 16, 1,114 +/- 230 g, gestation age: 28 +/- 2 wk). Airway opening flows were measured via face mask-pneumotachograph (P-tach), whereas chest wall flows were derived from respiratory inductance plethysmography (RIP) excursions. Next, for each, we computed two spectral shape indexes: 1) harmonic distortion (k(d); k(d,P-tach) and k(d,RIP), respectively) defines the extent to which flows deviated from a single sine wave, and 2) the exponent of the power law (s; s(P-tach) and s(RIP), respectively), describing the spectral energy vs. frequency. P-tach and RIP flow spectra exhibited similar power law functional forms consistently in all infants. Also, mouth [s(P-tach) = 3.73 +/- 0.23% (95% confidence interval), k(d,P-tach) = 38.8 +/- 4.6%] and chest wall (s(RIP) = 3.51 +/- 0.30%, k(d,RIP) = 42.8 +/- 4.8%) indexes were similar and highly correlated (s(RIP) = 1.17 x s(P-tach) + 0.85; r(2) = 0.81; k(d,RIP) = 0.90 x k(d,P-tach) + 8.0; r(2) = 0.76). The corresponding time to peak tidal expiratory flow-to-expiratory time ratio (0.62 +/- 0.08) was higher than reported in older infants. The obtained s and k(d) values are similar to those reported in older and/or larger chronic lung disease infants, yet appreciably lower than for 1-mo-old healthy infants of closer age and/or size; this indicated increased complexity of tidal flows in very low birth weight babies. Importantly, we found equivalent flow spectral data from mouth and chest wall tidal flows. The latter are desirable because they avoid face mask artificial effects, including leaks around it, they do not interfere with ventilatory support delivery, and they may facilitate longer measurements that are useful in control of breathing assessment.  (+info)

METHODS: Sixteen elderly subjects (9 women, mean ± SD age 70.6 ± 3.9 y, mean ± SD body mass index 23.8 ± 2.5 kg/m2) and 16 healthy adults (8 women, mean ± age 25.9 ± 4.3 y, mean ± body mass index 23.6 ± 2.4 kg/m2) performed quiet breathing, VIS, and FIS in randomized sequence. Chest wall kinematics (via optoelectronic plethysmography) and inspiratory muscle activity (via surface electromyography) were assessed simultaneously. Synchrony between the superior thorax and abdominal motion was calculated (phase angle).. ...
Title: Diffuse Large B-Cell Lymphoma Presenting as an Anterior Chest Wall Mass: A Case Report and Literature Review. VOLUME: 5 ISSUE: 4. Author(s):Chrissy A. Navejar and Michael J. Morris. Affiliation:Department of Medicine (MCHE-MD), Brooke Army Medical Center, 3851 Roger Brooke Drive, FT SAM Houston, TX 78234-0709, USA.. Abstract: The association of malignant lymphoma with subsequent development of a solitary chest wall mass is uncommon. Diffuse large B-cell lymphoma is a subcategory of non-Hodgkins lymphoma that commonly affects the stomach, thyroid, parotid glands, and lungs. There is a defined association between preexisting inflammation and the development of these lymphomas. It is also well known to have a predilection to disseminate to extranodal sites in a noncontiguous manner and has been previously reported to affect the chest wall in less than 100 cases. We present the case of an enlarging chest wall mass with an associated lymphomatous pleural effusion found to be an unusual ...

Optoelectronic plethysmography (OEP) is a method to evaluate ventilation through an external measurement of the chest wall surface motion. A number of small reflective markers are placed on the thoraco-abdominal surface by hypoallergenic adhesive tape. A system for human motion analysis measures the three-dimensional coordinates of these markers and the enclosed volume is computed by connecting the points to form triangles. From OEP it is thus possible to obtain volume variations of the entire chest wall and its different compartments. The chest wall can be modeled as being composed of three different compartments: pulmonary rib cage (RCp), abdominal rib cage (RCa), and the abdomen (AB). This model is the most appropriate for the study of chest wall kinematics in the majority of conditions, including exercise. It takes into consideration the fact that the lung- and diaphragm-apposed parts of the rib cage (RCp and RCa, respectively) are exposed to substantially different pressures on their inner ...
Surgical Procedures of Chest Wall Resection on orangecountysurgeons.org Chest wall resection is characterized by the removal of the rubs, sternum, cartilage, and other soft tissues in the chest. This procedure is performed as a result of spreading lung cancer. Also Known As: Chest wall resection and sternum reconstruction
Our results show that VIS and FIS increased pulmonary volumes in healthy adults; however, VIS induced a greater total chest wall volume, especially in the abdominal compartment, and lower respiratory muscle activity, compared to FIS. Moreover, we observed that only FIS promoted thoracoabdominal asynchrony. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to compare both types of incentive spirometry using accurate equipment that allows chest wall volume assessment in a 3-dimensional and 3-compartment analysis that also simultaneously quantifies the respiratory muscle activity.. Although VIS or FIS are widely used and recommended in clinical practice, especially for perioperative care, there is no consensus about their benefits or indications, and no study has demonstrated which incentive spirometer is the most effective.22-24 This is most likely because few studies have assessed the differences in respiratory mechanics between the 2 devices. Parreira et al10 and Tomich et al11 evaluated ...

AU - Swamy, R. Ravindra. PY - 2016. Y1 - 2016. N2 - Occurrence of secondary tumors from visceral carcinomas on the thoracic cage represent a relatively rare form of metastasis. We present in this report an extremely rare case of an incidental finding of tumor mass (squamous cell carcinoma) in the thoracic wall of an adult male cadaver. During routine dissection of thoracic cavity, we noticed this unique tumor in the posterior thoracic wall. Its gross measurements were noted and a small piece of the tumor mass was processed for histopathological examination, to confirm its nature. The H&E stained section showed presence of infiltrating tumor composed of islands of squamous cells with pleomorphic nuclei, course chromatin, scattered dyskeratotic cells and foci of keratin pearl formation, which confirmed the ...
BACKGROUND: Dyspnea and exercise intolerance are the symptoms that affect the quality of life of children and adolescents with respiratory disorders resulting from Cystic Fibrosis (CF). OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect of noninvasive ventilation (NIV) on functional exercise capacity, lung funtion and Compartmental chest wall volume in children and adolescents with cystic fibrosis. METHOD: Thirteen patients (aged 7-16 years) with CF and pulmonary impairment were enrolled in this is crossover clinical trial, randomized and controlled. They performed the six minutes walking test on the treadmill(6MWTT), with and without NIV, an interval of 12 to 24 hours between tests. Before and after each test, patients were assessed by spirometry, manovacuometry and measured chest wall volume variations by optoeletronic plethysmography. RESULTS: Walking distance in 6MWTT with NIV was significantly higher that without ventilatory support, (p,0.04). After the test with NIV increase maximal expiratory ...
Abdominal surgery impairs respiratory system during the postoperative period. Laparoscopies (LPC) and laparotomies (LPT) are the most used surgical procedures; however, there is not enough evidence regarding the differences of both surgeries on the respiratory mechanics. Objective: To compare the effect of laparoscopy and laparotomy surgeries on thoracoabdominal mechanics. Methods: This prospective study enrolled 19 consecutive patients, 9 undergoing LPC and 10 LPT (56±9 yrs, BMI=24±4 Kg/m2) that performed chest wall kinematics analysis (optoelectronic plethysmography) before and 2 days after surgery. Patients were evaluated during quiet and deep breathing. Two way repeated measures ANOVA and post hoc Student Newman Keuls test were performed and significance level was set at 5%. Results: Surgical duration was similar between both groups (LPC=229.4±96 vs. LPT=275.0±104min; p,0.05). After LPC and LPT surgeries, patients presented similar decrease in chest wall volume at deep breath ...

Chest wall tumors reflect a wide range of the various musculoskeletal diseases. Their infrequency in this unique location generates a diagnostic and therapeutic challenge to the thoracic surgeon. More than half the malignant tumors of the chest wall represent either metastatic lesions from distant organs (i.e., carcinoma or sarcoma) or invasion from contiguous structures such as the breast, lung, pleura, or mediastinum.1 Primary malignant neoplasms include tumors that arise from soft, cartilaginous, or bony tissues. The most common pathology is sarcoma and, less frequently, solitary plasmacytoma or lymphoma. In many series, the number of patients reported is small because of the rarity of primary chest wall malignant tumors; thus the data on these cases are limited. From these data it can be concluded that approximately 45% of primary malignant chest wall tumors arise from soft tissue sarcomas and 55% appear in cartilaginous or bony tissue.2 ...

May 7, 1951 - July 29, 2018. Robert Bob M. Campbell, Jr. passed away peacefully on July 29th, 2018 surrounded by his family. Though he battled illness for years, Dr. Campbell was a true warrior for his family and patients, caring for children until just a few days before his death. His innovative thought-leadership and inventions changed the worlds approach to children with complex, life-threatening spine and chest wall deformities. The essence of Dr. Campbells contribution to pediatric orthopaedic surgery is this paradigm shift: the focus of treating children with complex spine and chest wall deformities should be on pulmonary function, not on the major curve angle measurement of their scoliosis. His tenacious drive to evangelize the critical importance of preserving or improving pulmonary function, and his success inventing devices to support spine and chest wall growth, explain why colleagues refer to him as the Charnley of early onset scoliosis.. Born on May 7, 1951, Dr. Campbell was ...
Helical TomoTherapy, which enabled simultaneous IMRT and IGRT, has achieved encouraging clinical outcomes in terms of tumor response, survival, and toxicity in head and neck and prostate cancer [9],[10]. However, it is not easy to apply continuously-rotating TomoTherapy to breast cancer patients, since it is accompanied by low-dose irradiation on both lungs and can result in radiation pneumonitis [11].. TomoDirect, which uses static gantry positions, combined with simultaneous couch translation and multi-leaf collimator modulation makes it possible to irradiate the whole breast without low-dose radiation to lungs in breast cancer patients. The static gantry angles of TomoDirect are identical to the tangential beam angles of conventional linear accelerator. The difference between TomoDirect and conventional 3-dimensional conformal radiotherapy (3DCRT) is that the patient is stationary during breast irradiation using the conventional linear accelerator and the patient slides through the ...

Lung cancer is the most frequent malignant tumour in men. Advanced disease may produce metastatic tumours in subcutaneous tissue and also infiltrate the chest wall. We present a history of a man referred to our department suspected of lung tumour infiltrating the chest wall. Additionally, bone metastatic disease was diagnosed (ribs, vertebral bodies and skull). Thanks to a wide diagnostic approach, ductal cancer of the breast was finally diagnosed, a neoplasm that is extremely rare in male patients, usually presenting as a definite nodule in the nipple area of the breast. This case shows the importance of careful histological evaluation of the chest wall tumour. ...

Hospital referral is indicated as an emergency for breast infections not settling with oral antibiotics. Referrals to a breast clinic over a period of 6 months were assessed for prior antibiotic prescription. A total of 1078 patients were seen during this period. 91 (8%) patients had been prescribed antibiotics, 71% of which had been prescribed for non-infective conditions. Of those patients treated for infection, 42% had the wrong antibiotic prescribed. The final diagnoses for patients inappropriately prescribed antibiotics were chest wall pain in 23% and duct ectasia in 14%. Although the reasons for prescription of antibiotics are mutifactorial, careful examination of the patient will diagnose chest wall pain. Delayed prescribing may be appropriate for some patients.. ...
PURPOSE To investigate the association between cardiovascular risk factors as calculated by FRS and coronary artery mean wall thickness (MWT) on coronary CT Angiography (cCTA). METHOD AND MATERIALS Framingham risk assessment was performed on 60 consecutive patients (38 male, 22 female, mean age 53.2±14.7 years) with suspected Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) who had undergone cCTA in our institution. They were divided into low and high-risk groups based on10yr risk % of developing hard (high risk≥5%, low risk,5%) and presence of individual risk determinants (i.e. age, systolic blood pressure (SBP), smoking, HDL and total cholesterol scores).

Hello, Read your bio. Youve lost weight. Did you lose weight eating a high fat atkins? Any idea of your calorie intake when losing weight? I ak because Ive followed this blog for a while and 6 months ago changed to eating low carb hyperlipid. Despite changing some things around slightly (different meats, lowering protein, cutting cheese, reintroducing cheese) nothing is changing. I have 5stone to lose and after 6 months of less than 50g of carb a day (typically 30g or less) Im not losing. So with all your experience looking through these papers etc what is your hunch what the best foods and calorie intake to loose weight are? BTW I also checked my blood sugar and it was running a bit high but is looking more normal now, but still no weight loss. In fact I lost a few inches, put a couple of them back on and am actually heavier than when I started although I look less puffy - not so much a carb-face anymore if you know what I mean ...
There does however, seem to be evidence that it is the degree of inflation that is likely to cause more damage rather than just the pressure alone. The quoted example of this is the trumpet player who will often create pressures of 150cm H20 without adverse effects. Just as in experiments, if the chest wall in lab rats was restricted using strapping damage was reduced at higher pressures, then those patients with poor chest wall compliance (abdominal distension, massive fluid resuscitation, chest wall deformity, morbid obesity) are at less risk of volutrauma with high volumes.. Volutrauma then is lung parenchymal damage caused by mechanical ventilation similar to ARDS.. It manifests itself with increased permeability of the alveolar membrane, pulmonary oedema, disruption in surfactant production and a decrease in compliance of the respiratory system..

5 months previously he had been admitted to hospital for 10 days with a spontaneous perforated sigmoid colon complicated by faecal peritonitis. The aetiology of the perforation had been unclear, but a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis, including views of the lung bases, had demonstrated a right-sided pleural effusion. A Hartmanns procedure was performed and was successfully reversed 2 months later. Histology of the resected bowel was unremarkable.. On examination the patient had a tall and slender build, but this was not remarkable. Body mass index and arm span were not formally measured. There was no joint hypermobility, chest wall deformity or corneal abnormality. Palatal examination was normal.. The presumptive diagnosis was of spontaneous left-sided pneumothorax with previous fibrinous pleural disease, which was thought to most likely have arisen as a consequence of an undiagnosed empyema from intra-abdominal sepsis or nosocomial pneumonia 5 months previously. He was treated with i.v. ...

The gist: Patients with recurrent chest wall (RCW) breast cancer in the European Union and Switzerland will now have access to a new treatment called ThermoDox. ThermoDox is a new way of delivering the chemotherapy drug doxorubicin. ThermoDox is spread throughout the body by the bloodstream, but it is not activated unless a doctor heats a body part to 39.5 - 42 degrees Celsius. That way, the patient can have the drug activated only to the part of the body where it is needed. Based on promising results in patients in clinical trials, ThermoDox will now be available in Europe in an Early Access Program.. Celsion Corporation (NASDAQ:CLSN), a fully-integrated oncology company focused on the development of a portfolio of innovative cancer treatments, today announced that it has signed a license and distribution agreement with myTomorrows to implement an Early Access Program for ThermoDox®, its proprietary heat-activated liposomal encapsulation of doxorubicin, in all countries of the European Union ...
