The VivaSight™‐DLT is a new OLV (one lung ventilation) device that contains an embedded camera. Therefore, a potential advantage is the continuous assessment of DLT position through co...
The investigators sought to compare the time to intubation and success rate of the endotracheal intubation using standard double-lumen tube and video tube ETView DL in an adult cadaver mod...
This prospective, randomized, comparative study is intended to enroll a total of 60 patients undergoing thoracic surgery that necessitates single lung ventilation. The efficacy and perform...
One lung ventilation (OLV) has become a standard procedure for the vast majority of interventions in pulmonary surgery. It is used in both techniques: thoracotomy and videothoracoscopy (VA...
One-lung ventilation (OLV) is required for the most thoracic surgery to facilitate surgical visualization by collapsing the lung. The double-lumen tube (DLT) and Uniblocker are the commonl...
Lung separation and isolation with accomplished one-lung ventilation plays a key role in the airway management for thoracic surgery. Spectrum of indication contains thoracic surgery, procedure- and pa...
Our objective is to show our process to standardize and decrease the time to place and teach double-lumen endotracheal tube (DLETT) intubation.
There are limited data about how to choose the correct size of a double-lumen tube (DLT). It is especially difficult to select an appropriate DLT for Asian women because of their small stature. The pr...
A tube of ectodermal tissue in an embryo that will give rise to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, including the SPINAL CORD and the BRAIN. Lumen within the neural tube is called neural canal which gives rise to the central canal of the spinal cord and the ventricles of the brain. For malformation of the neural tube, see NEURAL TUBE DEFECTS.
Benign or malignant neoplasms of the FALLOPIAN TUBES. They are uncommon. If they develop, they may be located in the wall or within the lumen as a growth attached to the wall by a stalk.
Discrete abnormal tissue masses that protrude into the lumen of the DIGESTIVE TRACT or the RESPIRATORY TRACT. Polyps can be spheroidal, hemispheroidal, or irregular mound-shaped structures attached to the MUCOUS MEMBRANE of the lumen wall either by a stalk, pedunculus, or by a broad base.
Congenital malformations of the central nervous system and adjacent structures related to defective neural tube closure during the first trimester of pregnancy generally occurring between days 18-29 of gestation. Ectodermal and mesodermal malformations (mainly involving the skull and vertebrae) may occur as a result of defects of neural tube closure. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, pp31-41)
A short muscle that arises from the pharyngotympanic tube (EUSTACHIAN TUBE) and inserts into the handle of the MALLEUS. This muscle pulls the handle medially thus controlling the tension and movement of TYMPANIC MEMBRANE.
