Large septic pulmonary embolus complicating streptococcus mutans pulmonary valve endocarditis
(EduRad Publishing, 2018)
Large septic pulmonary embolus is a rare finding in right-sided endocarditis. The entity represents a challenging diagnosis due to its variable and nonspecific clinical and radiological presentation and similarities with ...
Revisiting the role of TRP, orai, and ASIC channels in the pulmonary arterial response to hypoxia
(Frontiers Media S.A., 2018)
© 2018 Reyes, Castillo-Galán, Hernandez, Herrera, Ebensperger and Llanos. The pulmonary arteries are exquisitely responsive to oxygen changes. They rapidly and proportionally contract as arterial PO2 decrease, and they ...
Chromosome 22q11 deletion in a patient with pulmonary atresia, intact ventricular septum, and confluent branch pulmonary arteries
(Cambridge University Press, 2018)
In this study, we report a patient with pulmonary atresia with intact ventricular septum (PA/IVS), confluent pulmonary arteries supplied by an arterial duct, and chromosome 22q11.2 microdeletion. The 22q11.2 deletion ...
Fístula arteriovenosa pulmonar maciça. Causa rara, potencialmente curável de hipóxia neonatal.
The case of a six-day-old neonate admitted in an emergency situation because of dyspnea and increasing cyanosis is reported. Despite abnormal opacification on the chest X-ray and left ventricular overload on the electrocardiogram ...
Clinical and haemodynamic evaluation of chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension patients scheduled for pulmonary thromboendarterectomy: Is schistosomiasis hypertension an important confounding factor?
(Faculdade de Medicina / USP, 2010)
INTRODUCTION: Chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension is a disease affecting approximately 4,000 people per year in the United States. The incidence rate in Brazil, however, is unknown. The estimated survival for ...
Echocardiographic Doppler estimation of pulmonary artery pressure in critically ill patients with severe hypoxemia
BACKGROUND: In spontaneously breathing cardiac patients, pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) can be accurately estimated from the transthoracic Doppler study of pulmonary artery and tricuspid regurgitation blood flows. In ...
Pulmonary artery intramural hematoma: Unusual complication of aortic dissection
2-Aminoethyldiphenylborinate modiﬁes the pulmonary circulation in pulmonary hypertensive newborn lambs partially gestated at high altitude
(Amer Physiological Soc., 2016-10)
Calcium signaling through store-operated channels (SOC) is involved in hypoxic pulmonary hypertension. We determined whether a treatment with 2-aminoethyldiphenylborinate (2-APB), a compound with SOC blocker activity, ...
