Anomalous Lobar Pattern of Right Lung: A Case Report
(Sociedad Chilena de Anatomía, 2006)
Lung Diffusing Capacity Relates Better to Short-Term Progression on HRCT Abnormalities Than Spirometry in Mild Asbestosis
Background Pulmonary function tests (PFT), particularly spirometry and lung diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DL(CO)), have been considered useful methods for the detection of the progression of interstitial asbestos ...
Unusual manifestations of metastatic pulmonary calcification - High-resolution CT and pathological findings
(Lippincott Williams & WilkinsPhiladelphiaEUA, 2005)
Thin-section CT abnormalities and pulmonary gas exchange impairment in workers exposed to asbestos
(Radiological Soc North AmericaOak BrookEUA, 2004)
Impact of rhinitis on lung function in children and adolescents without asthma
(Elsevier Doyma Sl, 2016-11)
Subclinical spirometric abnormalities may be detected in patients with rhinitis without asthma, proportional to the severity established by ARIA (Allergic Rhinitis and Its Impact on Asthma) guidelines. New criteria of ...
Surfactant deactivation in a pediatric model induces hypovolemia and fluid shift to the extravascular lung compartment
(John Wiley & Sons, 2013)
BACKGROUND: Surfactant deficiency is the pivotal abnormality in Neonatal and Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome. Surfactant deactivation can produce hypoxemia, loss of lung compliance, and pulmonary edema, but its ...
A comparison of visual and quantitative methods to identify interstitial lung abnormalities
Abstract Background Evidence suggests that individuals with interstitial lung abnormalities (ILA) on a chest computed tomogram (CT) may have an increased risk to develop a ...
Pathological and ultrastructural analysis of surgical lung biopsies in patients with swine-origin influenza type A/H1N1 and acute respiratory failure
(Faculdade de Medicina / USP, 2010)
BACKGROUND: Cases of H1N1 and other pulmonary infections evolve to acute respiratory failure and death when co-infections or lung injury predominate over the immune response, thus requiring early diagnosis to improve ...
