No gold standard for ideal body weight determination in children exists. We aimed to compare four methods of ideal body weight calculation and determine level of agreement between methods and impact o...
Lung biopsy is part of the diagnostic workup for multiple diseases. Although the morbidity of the procedure has decreased with the use of thoracoscopy, lung biopsy still holds substantial risk for pat...
Thoracoscopy is an increasingly common procedure that provides significant clinical information and therapeutic applications. The procedure allows the physician to biopsy the parietal pleura under dir...
Current in vitro human lung epithelial cell models derived from adult tissues may not accurately represent all attributes that define homeostatic and disease mechanisms relevant to the pediatric lung.
This is a clinical trial comparing surgical conditions during one-lung ventilation with three different bronchial blockers or with double-lumen endobronchial tubes.
Surgery involving the chest cavity, particularly VATS procedures, often require one-lung ventilation. The double-lumen tube (DLT) is considered the gold standard for lung isolation with di...
Lung isolation technique and one-lung ventilation (OLV) are the mainstays of thoracic anesthesia. Two principal lung isolation techniques are mainly use by clinicians, the double lumen tub...
RATIONALE: Diagnostic procedures such as thoracoscopy may help to measure a patient's response to previous treatment. PURPOSE: Diagnostic trial to determine the accuracy of thoracoscopy i...
Consecutive patients who are planned to undergo a medical thoracoscopy for obtaining pleural biopsies will be enrolled in the study. One hundred subjects will be randomized in 1:1 ratio t...
Expected weight of a healthy normal individual based on age, sex, and height. Thus, a malnourished person would weigh less than their ideal body weight.
Thermal destruction of the excess bronchial SMOOTH MUSCLE tissue with heat delivered through a catheter assembly attached to a BRONCHOSCOPE. It is often used to control BRONCHIAL HYPERREACTIVITY in severe ASTHMA for better AIRWAY MANAGEMENT.
Left bronchial arteries arise from the thoracic aorta, the right from the first aortic intercostal or the upper left bronchial artery; they supply the bronchi and the lower trachea.
