Hemopneumothorax, or haemopneumothorax, is a medical term describing the combination of two conditions: pneumothorax, or air in the chest cavity, and hemothorax (also called hæmothorax), or blood in the chest cavity.. A hemothorax, pneumothorax or both can occur if the chest wall is punctured. To understand the ramifications of this it is important to have an understanding of the role of the pleural space. The pleural space is located anatomically between the visceral membrane, which is firmly attached to the lungs, and the parietal membrane which is firmly attached to the chest wall (aka ribcage and intercostal muscles, muscles between the ribs). The pleural space contains pleural fluid. This fluid holds the two membranes together by surface tension, as much as a drop of water between two sheets of glass prevents them from separating. Because of this, when the intercostal muscles move the ribcage outward, the lungs are pulled out as well, dropping the pressure in the lungs and pulling air into ...
Haemothorax, haemopneumothorax, and pneumothorax were the most common complications in 85 patients with penetrating stab injuries of the chest. These complications were amenable to conservative treatment by aspiration or drainage of the pleural space. Immediate operation was indicated in 30 cases. Indications for surgery were haemorrhage from a major systemic or pulmonary vessel or the heart, cardiac tamponade, diaphragmatic penetration, oesophageal and bronchial tears, and sucking chest wounds. The need for immediate operation was clinically obvious at presentation in most cases. It should have been suspected from the situation of the entry wound, the nature of the weapon used, the size of the haemothorax, and the clinical findings in the others. All 11 deaths occurred in that group in which early operation was indicated, and some could have been averted had the need for operation been suspected early. Seven patients developed an empyema; five were in the group that required immediate surgery ...
A pulmonary laceration is a chest injury in which lung tissue is torn or cut. An injury that is potentially more serious than pulmonary contusion, pulmonary laceration involves disruption of the architecture of the lung, while pulmonary contusion does not. Pulmonary laceration is commonly caused by penetrating trauma but may also result from forces involved in blunt trauma such as shear stress. A cavity filled with blood, air, or both can form. The injury is diagnosed when collections of air or fluid are found on a CT scan of the chest. Surgery may be required to stitch the laceration, to drain blood, or even to remove injured parts of the lung. The injury commonly heals quickly with few problems if it is given proper treatment; however it may be associated with scarring of the lung or other complications. Complications are not common but include infection, pulmonary abscess, and bronchopleural fistula (a fistula between the pleural space and the bronchial tree). A bronchopleural fistula results ...
Pulmonary laceration has been accepted as a rare event of primary lung injury in blunt chest trauma. Four types of pulmonary laceration have been classified according to computed tomographic (CT) pattern, lung location, and injury mechanism. Type 1 p

The resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta, because of its efficacy and feasibility, has been widely used in treating patients with severe torso trauma. However, complications developing around the site proximal to the occlusion by resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aorta have almost never been studied. A 50-year-old Japanese woman fell from a height of approximately 10 m. At initial arrival, her respiratory rate was 24 breaths/minute, her blood oxygen saturation was 95% under 10 L/minute oxygenation, her pulse rate was 90 beats per minute, and her blood pressure was 180/120 mmHg. Mild lung contusion, hemopneumothorax, unstable pelvic fracture, and retroperitoneal bleeding with extravasation of contrast media were observed in initial computed tomography. As her vital signs had deteriorated during computed tomography, a 7-French aortic occlusion catheter (RESCUE BALLOON®, Tokai Medical Products, Aichi, Japan) was inserted and inflated for aortic occlusion at the first
Recently there were encountered on the Ward Service of the Barnes Hospital three patients with spontaneous pneumothorax, each of whom exhibited complications which seemed of sufficient interest to us to warrant reporting. The first patient was a 51 year old man with congenital cystic disease of the lung. Treatment in this case proved to be of particular interest. The second patient suffered a spontaneous pneumothorax with complete atelectasis of the left upper lobe. This complication has been reported only once before. The third patient had a spontaneous hemopneumothorax with recovery followed two months later by a spontaneous pneumothorax. It has ...
A.E. was unable to talk, walk, breathe, or eat independently. This was not the strong, 16-year-old girl that had been involved in track and field, power lifting and four wheeling prior to her motor vehicle accident. Suddenly, this vibrant, social, outgoing, fun-loving girl was no longer that same person. A.E. had been with friends and was on her way home when she suddenly lost control of her car and it slid over an embankment. A.E. was ejected from the car, suffered a loss of consciousness and was unresponsive at the scene of the accident. She was intubated and airlifted to a trauma center.. Upon initial examination and CT findings, A.E. was diagnosed with a severe brain injury, rib fractures, spleen and liver lacerations, clavicle fracture, C1 fracture, pelvic fracture, a hemopneumothorax requiring a chest tube, and extensive facial and skull fractures. A later MRI also revealed significant bleeding in her brain.. After A.E. was medically stabilized, she required an open reduction internal ...

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 ...

The yakuza existed in Japan well before the 1800s and followed codes similar to the samurai. Their early operations were usually close-knit, and the leader had father-son relationships. Although this traditional arrangement continues to exist, yakuza activities are increasingly replaced by modern types of gangs that depend on force and money as organizing concepts. Nonetheless, yakuza often picture themselves as saviors of traditional Japanese virtues in a postwar society, sometimes forming ties with traditionalist groups espousing the same views and attracting citizens not satisfied with society. Yakuza groups in 1990 were estimated to number more than 3,300 and together contained more than 88,000 members. Although concentrated in the largest urban prefectures, yakuza operate in most cities and often receive protection from highranking officials. After concerted police pressure in the 1960s, smaller gangs either disappeared or began to consolidate in syndicate-type organizations. In 1990, three ...

Sharps injury is a penetrating stab wound from a needle, scalpel, or another sharp object that may result in exposure to blood or other body fluids. According to World Health Organization pooled estimate, the annual incidence of sharps injury in Africa was ranged from 2.10 to 4.68 per person per year, but research data in Ethiopia is limited. The aim of the study was to investigate sharps injury prevalence and associated risk factors. Institution based cross-sectional study was conducted with 200 healthcare providers (HCP) in Northeast Ethiopia. Proportionate stratified sampling was used to select HCP. Sharps injury during the last 12 months was an outcome variable whereas demographic characteristics, behavioral attributes, and job environment characteristics were independent variables. Data was collected from April to May 2016 using self-administered questionnaire; which was adapted from World Health Organization best practices for injections and related procedures toolkit.

The primary site for venous hemangioma arising in the brain is blood vessel (C490). The combination of 9122/0 and C490 is not reportable. This is a venous abnormality. Previously called venous angiomas, these are currently referred to as a developmental venous anomalies (DVA).. ...
This study has several limitations. First, although CT scanning was performed in almost all patients, the true incidence of silent EEs is unknown and may be underestimated. Second, embolization may reduce the size and mobility of the vegetation, and inclusion of patients with previous EEs may have resulted in underestimation of the relationship between vegetation size and risk of EEs (3,22). Third, the main limitation of the study is that 61% of the patients underwent surgery. It is possible that some patients with large and mobile vegetations underwent early operation before a potential EE. Consequently, the natural history of the emboli is potentially altered by the operation. Another limitation is the possible effect of antibiotic treatment on the incidence of embolism. In our series, EEs were infrequent during treatment, as only 11 [16%] of 66 EEs occurred after initiation of antibiotic treatment. However, a repeat CT scan was not systematically performed after treatment, so the exact ...
A test for HIV antibody is considered positive when a sequence of tests (including enzyme immunoassay and a more specific assay such as the Western blot) are consistently reactive. HIV testing and pre- and posttest counseling are suggested for persons with sexually transmitted diseases, intravenous drug abusers, and persons who consider themselves at risk. Women of childbearing age with identifiable risk for HIV should be tested and counseled, and persons planning marriage should be given information about HIV and AIDS and the availability of counseling and testing. Other groups for whom testing or counseling may be appropriate include persons in hospitals or undergoing medical evaluation, inmates, and prostitutes. Partners of seropositive individuals should be notified via confidential procedures. Confidentiality and antidiscrimination are important to the success of such public health programs. 9 references. ...

Galileo satellites 5 and 6 are safely under control, despite having been released on a lower and elliptical orbit instead of the expected circular orbit on August 22. Each satellites set of solar arrays is fully deployed and generating power, and operations continue smoothly.. The European ground teams deployed at the European Space Agencys (ESA) control centre ESOC in Darmstadt, Germany, in cooperation with satellite manufacturer OHB, confirm that both satellites are in a safe state, correctly pointing to the sun, properly powered, and fully under control of the ESA-CNES integrated team.. Controllers are ready to proceed to the next stage of the launch and early operations phase activities.. In parallel, ESA teams are investigating the possibilities of exploiting the satellites to maximum advantage, despite their non-nominal injection orbits and within the limited propulsion capabilities. Different scenarios will then be assessed before decisions are taken for a recovery mission, according to ...
Intravenous drug abusers in a methadone program in Minnesota were offered HIV-antibody screening to determine the degree of interest in screening and extent of infection. Thirty-nine (85 percent) were willing to be tested. Only seven refused. All patients were aware of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) and their high risk of exposure to the AIDS virus through sharing of injection paraphernalia. None reported exposure to additional risk factors, such as homosexual or bisexual activity or having received a blood transfusion. Of the patients tested, none was positive for HIV antibodies. The high degree of patient interest in screening was unanticipated as was the lack of positive laboratory findings for HIV antibodies. Factors associated with acceptance of testing included patient awareness of high seroprevalence rates, indifference to potential negative social consequences of positive HIV-antibody status, and the voluntary nature of the testing. These findings raise a cautious sense of ...

Occult cardiac injury following blunt trauma is more common than generally suspected. Myocardial contusion is not rare, however, it is generally a benign disorder which often remains undiagnosed. We report a case of a right atrial rupture after blunt chest trauma causing a tamponade. A 24-year-old man was involved in a violent car accident and he presented in a state of collapse. A multislice computed tomography indicated a pericardial effusion (Figure 1). A transthoracic echocardiography was performed and confirmed pericardial effusion which was hyperechoic (Figure 2, Movie 1). Concerns about a possible mass in the right atrium led to examination with transesophageal echocardiography (Figure 3, Movie 2) which revealed the presence of a voluminous mass in the right atrium. The patient successfully underwent cardiac surgery to remove the mass, identified as a blood clot, and to repair the atrial tear. The present case is of special interest because of the rarity of documented incidents of blunt chest
Low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) includes all LLRW arising from the activities associated with nuclear electricity generation, from nuclear research and development, and from the production and use of radioisotopes in medicine, education, research, agriculture and industry. Examples of LLRW are contaminated materials, rags and protective clothing. It also includes contaminated soils and related wastes resulting from the very early operations of Canadas radium industry. LLRW is grouped into two broad categories, as follows:. ...
So Im minding my own business, a little bit of a sore back (I get a sore back a lot, so thought nothing of it), when I turn and feel the sore back shift around my lung to become a sore chest. Another turn sends it back again. I knew what it was immediately, the shifting is air, which should be inside my lung, but isnt.
