Giant pulmonary bullae (GPB) is rare. The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional results of video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) in the treatment of GPB and the factors associated with complications following VATS resection for GPB.

Giant bullous emphysema (GBE) is defined by giant bullae in one or both upper lobes, occupying at least one-third of the hemithorax and compressing the surrounding parenchyma . Symptoms include dys...
Patients with impaired lung function or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are considered high-risk for intubated general anesthesia, which may preclude them from surgical treatment of their...
The diagnosis of mediastinal space-occupying lesions largely relies on X-ray and computed tomography. However, thanks to technological progress, transthoracic echocardiography can clearly display the ...
Primary lung bullae have been reported to cause pulmonary barotrauma and lead to cerebral arterial gas embolism (CAGE) in the context of diving; however, a lack of symptoms and often minimal radiograp...
Congenital Pulmonary Venous Stenosis is an uncommon congenital heart defect and is a consequence of failed incorporation of the common right and/or left pulmonary vein into the left atrium during embr...
The exact pathogenesis of PSP is controversial. A few theories has been proposed contributing to the pathogenesity of the PSP as emphysematous like changes (ELCs) which lead to the formati...
Lung cancer is one of the most common cancers in the world. At present, surgical resection is still the standard treatment for early stage lung cancer. Triportal thoracoscopic lung resecti...
The primary objective of this trial is to demonstrate the effectiveness of the powered vascular stapler for transection of the pulmonary artery (PA) and pulmonary vein (PV) during Video-As...
Schwannomas are benign tumors that can reach giant sizes. The diagnosis and treatment of these cases differ from those of small schwannomas. The aim of this study was to review the diagnos...
The objective of this study is to determine whether stapling adversely affects the pulmonary parenchyma and the vascularisation of the adjacent segments. The aim of our work is to explore ...
Multinucleated cells (fused macrophages) seen in granulomatous inflammations such as tuberculosis, syphilis, sarcoidosis, and deep fungal infections. They resemble foreign-body giant cells (GIANT CELLS, FOREIGN BODY) but Langhans giant cells contain less chromatin and their nuclei are arranged peripherally in a horseshoe-shaped pattern. Langhans giant cells occur frequently in delayed hypersensitivity.
Multinucleated cells (fused macrophages), characteristic of granulomatous inflammation, which form around exogenous material in the skin. They are similar in appearance to Langhans giant cells (GIANT CELLS, LANGHANS), but foreign-body giant cells have more abundant chromatin and their nuclei are scattered in an irregular pattern in the cytoplasm.
A non-neoplastic inflammatory lesion, usually of the jaw or gingiva, containing large, multinucleated cells. It includes reparative giant cell granuloma. Peripheral giant cell granuloma refers to the gingiva (giant cell epulis); central refers to the jaw.
Tumors of bone tissue or synovial or other soft tissue characterized by the presence of giant cells. The most common are giant cell tumor of tendon sheath and GIANT CELL TUMOR OF BONE.
Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis can progress to CHRONIC NECROTIZING PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS or hematogenous spread to other organs.

Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
