Spontaneous Pneumothorax and air travel in BHD Syndrome

Previous studies show that BHD syndrome causes spontaneous pneumothorax (SP) in 24-38% of patients, with a recurrence rate of up to 75% (Toro et al., 2007; Toro et al., 2008; Houweling et al., 2011). ...

Basolateral protrusion and apical contraction cooperatively drive Drosophila germ-band extension

Sun et al. show that during Drosophila germ-band extension basolateral rosette formation does not depend on apical contractility, but is driven by Rac1-mediated protrusion and active cell migration...

Imaging-Guided Prostate Biopsies Miss Apical Cancer Lesions

Both magnetic-resonance- (MR) and transrectal-ultrasound-guided (TRUS) prostate biopsies often miss apical cancer lesions, according to new research. Reuters Health Information

Cell competition with normal epithelial cells promotes apical extrusion of transformed cells through metabolic changes

Fujita et al. find that normal epithelial cells induce metabolic changes in adjacent transformed cells, causing their apical extrusion. The effect is conveyed non-cell-autonomously and relies on PDK...

Intraoperative pneumothorax is a rare complication with a high risk of cardiorespiratory arrest by gas tamponade especially on a single lung. We report the case of a female patient aged 53 years who b...

Central Venous Catheter Placement in the Left Internal Jugular Vein Complicated by Perforation of the Left Brachiocephalic Vein and Massive Hemothorax: A Case Report.

An elderly male presented for emergent repair of a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm. For anticipated volume resuscitation, vasopressor administration, and hemodynamic monitoring, a large-bore centra...

Incidental spade-shaped FDG uptake in the left ventricular apex suggests apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.

Apical wall thickening with an "ace-of-spades" configuration is a unique sign of apical hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (AHCM). We investigated spade-shaped FDG uptake around the left ventricular apex (SS...

Enlarged left atrium, atrial fibrillation and adverse outcome in hypertrophic cardiomyopathy: is there a difference between apical and non-apical phenotype?

Use of an evidence-based algorithm for patients with traumatic hemothorax reduces need for additional interventions.

Concerted management of the traumatic hemothorax is ill-defined. Surgical management of specific hemothoraces may be beneficial. A comprehensive strategy to delineate appropriate patients for addition...
