*  Pleural cavity - Wikipedia
The pleural cavity is the thin fluid-filled space between the two pulmonary pleurae (known as visceral and parietal) of each lung. A pleura is a serous membrane which folds back onto itself to form a two-layered membranous pleural sac. The outer pleura (parietal pleura) is attached to the chest wall, but is separated from it by the endothoracic fascia. The inner pleura (visceral pleura) covers the lungs and adjoining structures, including blood vessels, bronchi and nerves. The pleural cavity can be viewed as a potential space because the two pleurae adhere to each other (through the thin film of serous liquid) under all normal conditions. In humans, there is no anatomical connection between the left and right pleural cavities. Therefore, in cases of pneumothorax, the other lung will still function normally unless there is a tension pneumothorax or simultaneous bilateral pneumothorax, which may collapse the ...

*  SU-E-J-111: Finite Element-Based Deformable Image Registration of Pleural Cavity for Photodynamic Therapy (Journal Article) |...
Purpose: The pleural volumes will deform during surgery portion of the pleural photodynamic therapy (PDT) of lung cancer when the pleural cavity is opened. This impact the delivered dose when using highly conformal treatment techniques. In this study, a finite element-based (FEM) deformable image registration is used to quantify the anatomical variation between the contours for the pleural cavities obtained in the operating room and those determined from pre-surgery computed tomography (CT) scans. Methods: An infrared camera-based navigation system (NDI) is used during PDT to track the anatomical changes and contour the lung and chest cavity. A series of CTs of the lungs, in the same patient, are also acquired before the surgery. The structure contour of lung and the CTs are processed and contoured in Matlab and MeshLab. Then, the contours are imported into COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0, where the FEM-based ...

*  Mediastinal pleura - Conservapedia
The Mediastinal pleura is the thin membrane that lines the chest cavity in the area between the lungs. The pleura is a two-layered structure: the parietal pleura lines the walls of the chest cage and covers the upper surface of the diaphragm, while the pulmonary pleura, or visceral layer, tightly covers the surface of the lungs. The two layers, which are actually one continuous sheet of tissue, are usually connected to each other. In humans, the pleural cavity is further separated into left and right sides by the heart and pericardial cavity. There is normally a slight amount of watery fluid within the pleural cavity that lubricates the pleural surfaces and allows the lungs to slide freely over the inner surface of the thoracic wall during breathing. ...

*  The Biology of HIV Transmission - Full Text View - ClinicalTrials.gov
Persons with early HIV infection may represent high transmission risk to their partners. Early infection, characterized by rapid virologic replication, insufficient immunologic control of infection, and more rapid course of disease progression, may be associated with increased infectiousness. The viral determinants of transmission may in part be explained by viral burden in blood, genital fluids, and oral cavity fluids. All three fluids may be the source for transmitted virus.. Persons with suspected HIV infection are asked to identify their possible source partners. The importance of partner referral is emphasized and assisted recruitment or active tracing is offered if necessary. Source partners will not be approached uninvited. If a partner states that he/she does not want to be contacted, then he/she will not be contacted further for the purpose of this study or for any other study. All patients are offered HIV counseling and plasma testing for HIV-1 RNA and CD4+ cells. Blood specimens ...

Due to the high yield of material for analysis from individual blastocysts, rabbit embryos will be used in the project. Non-enzymatic age-dependent protein modifications in blastocysts and cavity fluids of blastocysts from young (20 weeks) and old (130 weeks) females, diabetic and healthy donors will be analysed by two-dimensional (2D) gel electrophoresis followed by immunoblotting for AGEs. Modified proteins will be identified by mass spectroscopy and assessed by bioinformatics for functional networks (collaboration with SP5). We will continue collaborating with SP1, SP8 and SP2 on analyses of altered glycation and sialylation of embryonic tissues and fluids. Depending on the proteins identified, their role in cell signalling, gene transcription/translation and regulation will be analysed in collaboration with SP4, SP9, SP10, SP13 and SP14. Human and mouse embryonic stem cell lines will be used as in vitro models to investigate specific protein functions. As target molecule of metabolic and ...

A point thrust inflicted by a smallsword or rapier may produce somewhat different results. While a penetrating wound inflicted with these weapons may appear on the surface to be much smaller than the incising wound produced by the stroke of a sabre, the track of a penetrating wound may extend completely through the body, damaging even the most deeply located structures. In addition, such a wound may be inflicted with little effort since the entire force of the thrust is delivered by a sharp point over an extremely small surface area. Depending upon the size of the blade, the hole in the chest wall may be small enough to close itself partially upon withdrawal of the blade, producing only a slow leak of air into the chest cavity. If the victim were well profiled when the thrust was delivered, the blade could enter one lung and easily pass through the chest to the opposite side, causing pneumothorax in both pleural cavities. In this case air would enter the ...

*  Chapter 106. Overview | Adult Chest Surgery | AccessSurgery | McGraw-Hill Medical
collagen and elastin connective tissue.1 The pleural surfaces are categorized as the visceral and parietal pleurae. The interior surface, termed the visceral pleura, covers the lung. The exterior surface, denoted the parietal pleura, is adjacent to the chest wall, mediastinum, and diaphragm (Fig. 106-1). An analogous representation of this configuration can be created by invaginating an inflated balloon with one's fist (Fig. 106-2). The portion of the balloon that covers the hand is analogous to the visceral pleural surface, and the exterior surface of the balloon represents the parietal pleural surface. The transition from visceral to parietal pleura occurs at the hilum of the lung. Inferior to the hilum, the anterior and posterior leaves of the visceral pleura fuse together at the inferior pulmonary ligament and anchor the medial aspect of the lower lobe to the mediastinum. The sulci, or sinuses, of the pleural space are defined by various ...
