Surgical management of suprastomal tracheal collapse in children.

Suprastomal collapse is a complication of pediatric tracheotomy with a potential impact on decannulation success. The aim of this study was to review the experience in the management of pediatric supr...

The Impact of pH and Ion Exchange on 133Cs Adsorption on Vermiculite.

Many studies have shown that the adsorption of ions like K and Cs on 2:1 clay minerals can prompt the collapse of their interlayers and render the adsorbing ions nonexchangeable. This study sought to ...

Biodiversity loss through speciation collapse: Mechanisms, warning signals, and possible rescue.

Speciation is the process that generates biodiversity, but recent empirical findings show that it can also fail, leading to the collapse of two incipient species into one. Here, we elucidate the mecha...

Cardiovascular Collapse with Intravenous Amiodarone in Children: A Multi-Center Retrospective Cohort Study.

To determine the incidence of cardiovascular collapse in children receiving intravenous (IV) amiodarone and to identify the population at risk.

Toward a mechanistic understanding of "peat collapse" and its potential contribution to coastal wetland loss.

Coastal wetlands are susceptible to loss in both health and extent via stressors associated with global climate change and anthropogenic disturbance. Peat collapse may represent an additional phenomen...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The sudden collapse and disappearance or diminution of a colony of organisms.

Surgical treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis whereby the lung is totally or partially, temporarily or permanently, immobilized. The procedure was based on the popular concept that collapsing the affected portion of a tuberculous lung allowed the infected area to rest and thereby recover. At the beginning of the 20th century artificially induced pneumothorax (PNEUMOTHORAX, ARTIFICIAL) was popular. Later a variety of other techniques was used to encourage collapse of the infected portion of the lung: unilateral phrenic nerve division, PNEUMONOLYSIS, pneumoperitoneum (PNEUMOPERITONEUM, ARTIFICIAL), and THORACOPLASTY. Collapse therapy has declined since the advent of antitubercular chemotherapy. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Sabiston Jr, Textbook of Surgery, 14th ed, p1733-4)

Failure in built environment with loss of functional integrity.

Surgical removal of ribs, allowing the chest wall to move inward and collapse a diseased lung. (Dorland, 28th ed)

Injection of air or a more slowly absorbed gas such as nitrogen, into the pleural space to collapse the lung. It was formerly used to treat pulmonary tuberculosis. (From Stedman, 26th ed & Dorland, 28th ed)
