Summary of "Combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema: How does cohabitation affect respiratory functions?"

Combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) has emerged as a new syndrome with characteristics of both fibrosis and emphysema. We determined the impacts of radiologic emphysema severity on pulmonary function tests (PFTs), exercise capacity and mortality.

Distribution of emphysema and fibrosis in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis with coexisting emphysema.

Combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) is a syndrome that results from tobacco smoking. Emphysema and fibrosis in CPFE patients have been considered to exist separately, with emphysema in th...

Inflammatory Signature in Lung Tissues in Patients with Combined Pulmonary Fibrosis and Emphysema.

The etiology and inflammatory profile of combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) remain uncertain currently.

Predicting clinical outcome with phenotypic clusters using quantitative CT fibrosis and emphysema features in patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis.

The clinical course of IPF varies. This study sought to identify phenotyping with quantitative computed tomography (CT) fibrosis and emphysema features using a cluster analysis and to assess prognosti...

Reduced area of the normal lung on high-resolution computed tomography predicts poor survival in patients with lung cancer and combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema.

This study aimed to determine the radiologic predictors and clarify the clinical features related to survival in patients with combined pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema (CPFE) and lung cancer.

Translational research in pulmonary fibrosis.

Pulmonary fibrosis refers to the development of diffuse parenchymal abnormalities in the lung that cause dyspnea, cough, hypoxemia, and impair gas exchange, ultimately leading to respiratory failure. ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Enlargement of air spaces distal to the TERMINAL BRONCHIOLES where gas-exchange normally takes place. This is usually due to destruction of the alveolar wall. Pulmonary emphysema can be classified by the location and distribution of the lesions.

A diverse group of lung diseases that affect the lung parenchyma. They are characterized by an initial inflammation of PULMONARY ALVEOLI that extends to the interstitium and beyond leading to diffuse PULMONARY FIBROSIS. Interstitial lung diseases are classified by their etiology (known or unknown causes), and radiological-pathological features.

A disease of chronic diffuse irreversible airflow obstruction. Subcategories of COPD include CHRONIC BRONCHITIS and PULMONARY EMPHYSEMA.

A respiratory distress syndrome in newborn infants, usually premature infants with insufficient PULMONARY SURFACTANTS. The disease is characterized by the formation of a HYALINE-like membrane lining the terminal respiratory airspaces (PULMONARY ALVEOLI) and subsequent collapse of the lung (PULMONARY ATELECTASIS).

A group of interstitial lung diseases with no known etiology. There are several entities with varying patterns of inflammation and fibrosis. They are classified by their distinct clinical-radiological-pathological features and prognosis. They include IDIOPATHIC PULMONARY FIBROSIS; CRYPTOGENIC ORGANIZING PNEUMONIA; and others.
