How much esophageal pressure-guided end-expiratory transpulmonary pressure is sufficient to maintain lung recruitment in lavage-induced lung injury?

Due to limitations of the esophageal balloon technique, the value of using esophageal pressure (Pes)-guided end-expiratory transpulmonary pressure (PL-exp) to maintain lung recruitment in acute respir...

Acute esophageal necrosis (black esophagus) in a 40-year-old man.

Two sides of one coin: massive hepatic necrosis and progenitor cell-mediated regeneration in acute liver failure.

Massive hepatic necrosis is a key event underlying acute liver failure, a serious clinical syndrome with high mortality. Massive hepatic necrosis in acute liver failure has unique pathophysiological c...

An unusual presentation of compartment syndrome.

Compartment syndrome occurs when excessive pressure in an enclosed space in the body compromises perfusion. Without treatment, this condition can cause tissue ischemia and necrosis. Typically, acute c...

A young woman with skin necrosis after sclerotherapy.

A 23-year-old woman developed painful skin necrosis after injections with lauromacrogol 400 for varicose veins. This complication, called embolia cutis medicamentosa or Nicolau syndrome, is characteri...

Esophageal Sparing Intensity-modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) for Locally-Advanced Thoracic Malignancies

Hypothesis 1- Using IMRT, the RT dose can be safely escalated from 58 Gy to 74 Gy given as 6 fractions/week with concurrent chemotherapy. Hypothesis 2- Esophageal motion can be used to cu...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A mild form of LIMITED SCLERODERMA, a multi-system disorder. Its features include symptoms of CALCINOSIS; RAYNAUD DISEASE; ESOPHAGEAL MOTILITY DISORDERS; sclerodactyly, and TELANGIECTASIS. When the defect in esophageal function is not prominent, it is known as CRST syndrome.

Abrupt reduction in kidney function defined as an absolute increase in serum CREATININE of more than or equal to 0.3. mg/dl, a percentage increase in serum creatinine of more than or equal to 50%, or a reduction in urine output. Acute kidney injury encompasses the entire spectrum of the syndrome including acute kidney failure; ACUTE KIDNEY TUBULAR NECROSIS; and other less severe conditions.

A severe form of acute INFLAMMATION of the PANCREAS characterized by one or more areas of NECROSIS in the pancreas with varying degree of involvement of the surrounding tissues or organ systems. Massive pancreatic necrosis may lead to DIABETES MELLITUS, and malabsorption.

A syndrome of DYSPHAGIA with IRON-DEFICIENCY ANEMIA that is due to congenital anomalies in the ESOPHAGUS (such as cervical esophageal webs). It is known as Patterson-Kelly syndrome in the United Kingdom.

A syndrome that is associated with microvascular diseases of the KIDNEY, such as RENAL CORTICAL NECROSIS. It is characterized by hemolytic anemia (ANEMIA, HEMOLYTIC); THROMBOCYTOPENIA; and ACUTE RENAL FAILURE.
