Prognostic factors in lung transplantation: the Santa Casa de Porto Alegre experience.
Transplantation
PUBLISHED: 05-17-2011
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Lung transplantation (LT) has been established as a current therapy for selected patients with end-stage lung disease. Different prognostic factors have been reported by transplant centers. The objective of this study is to report our recent results with LT and to search for prognostic factors.

Large pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm due to lung carcinoma: pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm.
J Thorac Imaging
PUBLISHED: 02-18-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
We present the case of a 54-year-old patient who presented to our institution 4 months after refusing surgical treatment for a right upper lobe cavitary carcinoma. Weight loss, hemoptysis, and worsening pulsatile chest pain were the complaints. Radiologic restaging surprisingly revealed a large pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm occupying the whole cavity area. A right pneumonectomy with intrapericardial pulmonary artery ligation was performed. Previous cases are extremely rare and differ from ours as patients presented with advanced lung cancer and thus, were not treated with resection, but with coil embolization.

Surgical treatment of bronchial carcinoid tumors: a single-center experience.
Lung Cancer
PUBLISHED: 01-19-2010
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Bronchial carcinoid is an infrequent neoplasm with a neuroendocrine differentiation. Surgical treatment is the gold standard therapy, with procedures varying from sublobar resections to complex lung sparing broncoplastic procedures. This study evaluates the results of surgical treatment of bronchial carcinoids and its prognostic factors.

Post-intubation tracheal injury: report of three cases and literature review.
J Bras Pneumol
PUBLISHED: 09-09-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Post-intubation tracheal injury is a rare and potentially fatal complication. Among the most common causes, cuff overinflation and repetitive attempts of orotracheal intubation in emergency situations are paramount. Diagnosis is based on clinical and radiological suspicion, confirmed by fiberoptic bronchoscopy. Both conservative and surgical management apply, and the decision-making process depends on the patient profile (comorbidities, respiratory stability), characteristics of the lesion (size and location) and the time elapsed between the occurrence of the injury and the diagnosis. We report the cases of three patients presenting tracheal laceration due to traumatic orotracheal intubation, two submitted to surgical treatment and one submitted to conservative treatment.

Synchronous pulmonary and hepatic nodules in a patient with previous bronchogenic carcinoma: the relevance of histopathological confirmation.
J Bras Pneumol
PUBLISHED: 07-21-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
The synchronous presentation of pulmonary and hepatic nodules in a patient with previously resected bronchogenic carcinoma raises suspicion of recurrence and mandates restaging. We present the case of a 71-year-old male with a history of lobectomy with pericardial resection and mediastinal lymphadenectomy (T3N0M0). At five years after the operation, he presented with a new pulmonary lesion. Restaging detected a synchronous nodule in the liver. Despite the strong suspicion of tumor recurrence, further investigation with a percutaneous liver biopsy revealed hepatocellular carcinoma. In order to investigate the etiology of the pulmonary lesion (hypotheses of recurrent bronchial cancer and of metastatic hepatocellular carcinoma), an open lung biopsy was performed, which revealed chronic inflammatory tissue with foci of anthracosis and dystrophic calcification. The patient was submitted to a non-anatomic resection of the liver lesion. The postoperative course was uneventful, and the patient was discharged on postoperative day 10. This report highlights the relevance of the histopathological diagnosis in patients with a history of bronchogenic carcinoma and suspicion of tumor recurrence. Differential diagnoses and the treatment administered are discussed.

Prosthesis for open pleurostomy (POP): management for chronic empyemas.
Clinics (Sao Paulo)
PUBLISHED: 03-31-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
We developed a prosthesis for open pleurostomy cases where pulmonary decortication is not indicated, or where post-pneumonectomy space infection occurs. The open pleural window procedure not only creates a large hole in the chest wall that is shocking to patients, also results in a permanent deformation of the thorax. prosthesis for open pleurostomy is a self-retained silicone tube that requires the removal of 3 cm of one rib for insertion, and acts as a mature conventional open pleural window. Herein, we report our 13-year experience with this device in the management of different kinds of pleural empyema.

Surgical treatment of benign tracheo-oesophageal fistulas with tracheal resection and oesophageal primary closure: is the muscle flap really necessary?
Eur J Cardiothorac Surg
PUBLISHED: 03-30-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Nowadays, despite the advances of the low-pressure high-volume cuffs, post-intubation tracheo-oesophageal fistula (TEF) still poses a major challenge to thoracic surgeons. The original technique includes interposition of muscle flaps between suture lines to avoid recurrence. It is not clear if this manoeuvre is indispensable and, in fact, we and others have faced problems with it. Our aim is to present our experience with TEF management in a consecutive group with no muscle interposition.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
