A knowledge of pulmonary vein anatomy variants allows an appropriate preoperative radiological assessment and safe surgical management of vascular anomalies in patients undergoing major lung resection...
Scoliosis can cause various respiratory complications, even in the natural course, because of rearrangement of the intrathoracic anatomy due to chest wall deformity. We experienced a patient with scol...
Pneumonectomy is a surgical treatment for locally advanced lung tumors that deeply infiltrate into the pulmonary hilum, and is a major thoracic procedure. An intrapericardial approach may be necessary...
Owing to the severe donor shortage in Japan, living-donor lobar lung transplantation (LDLLT) remains a valuable option. As only lobes are implanted in LDLLT, grafts may be too small, especially for ad...
Pneumonectomy for pulmonary tuberculosis is a rare option but can sometimes be necessary in cases of destroyed lung, resulting from a previous or persistent chronic infection. Bronchopleural fistula o...
Both left single lung ventilation by left double lumen tube and bilateral ventilation with selective blockage of right middle lower lobe by bronchial blocker can provide suitable surgical ...
The clinical use of double lumen tubes and bronchial blockers requires a thorough knowledge of the tracheobronchial anatomy in order to establish the best choice for the patient. The liter...
Effect of Inferior Pulmonary Ligament Dissection on Postoperative Pulmonary Reexpansion and Bronchial Angle Change After Single-Operation-Hole Thoracoscopic Lobectomy in the Treatment of L...
Pulmonary vascular anatomy represents a constant challenge during lung resection, because of its variability in terms of vascular branches and anatomical variations. Preoperative standard...
the left lobe of the liver in obese patient usually fatty and enlarged and may cause difficulty during bariatric surgery. the aim of this study is to test the impact of routine preoperativ...
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.
A malformation of the heart in which the embryonic common PULMONARY VEIN was not incorporated into the LEFT ATRIUM leaving behind a perforated fibromuscular membrane bisecting the left atrium, a three-atrium heart. The opening between the two left atrium sections determines the degree of obstruction to pulmonary venous return, pulmonary venous and pulmonary arterial hypertension.
Placement of a balloon-tipped catheter into the pulmonary artery through the antecubital, subclavian, and sometimes the femoral vein. It is used to measure pulmonary artery pressure and pulmonary artery wedge pressure which reflects left atrial pressure and left ventricular end-diastolic pressure. The catheter is threaded into the right atrium, the balloon is inflated and the catheter follows the blood flow through the tricuspid valve into the right ventricle and out into the pulmonary artery.
Diversion of the flow of blood from the pulmonary veins directly to the aorta, avoiding the left atrium and the left ventricle (Dorland, 27th ed). This is a temporary procedure usually performed to assist other surgical procedures.
A congenital cardiovascular malformation in which the AORTA arises entirely from the RIGHT VENTRICLE, and the PULMONARY ARTERY from the LEFT VENTRICLE. Consequently, the pulmonary and the systemic circulations are parallel and not sequential, so that the venous return from the peripheral circulation is re-circulated by the right ventricle via aorta to the systemic circulation without being oxygenated in the lungs. This is a potentially lethal form of heart disease in newborns and infants.
