Ectopic bronchus: An insufficiently recognized malformation causing respiratory morbidity in VATER association

, : Ectopic bronchus: An insufficiently recognized malformation causing respiratory morbidity in VATER association. American Journal of Medical Genetics 82(2): 140-142, Jan 15

An 11-month-old boy presented with recurrent wheezing and atelectasis in the right upper lobe of the lung. Bronchoscopy and bronchography confirmed an ectopic bronchus arising from the right main bronchus. The diagnosis of VATER association was made on the basis of multiple vertebral and rib anomalies, imperforate anus with a perineal fistula, unilateral hydronephrosis, atrial septal defect, and a preauricular tag, he did not have tracheo-esophageal fistula. We emphasize the importance of recognizing tracheobronchial anomalies in VATER association.

We perform an observationally based evaluation of the cloud ice water content (CIWC) and path (CIWP) of present-day GCMs, notably 20th century CMIP5 simulations, and compare these results to CMIP3 and two recent reanalyses. We use three different...

Chen, M.; Boyle, F.J., 2015: Investigation of membrane mechanics using spring networks: application to red-blood-cell modelling. In recent years a number of red-blood-cell (RBC) models have been proposed using spring networks to represent the RBC membrane. Some results predicted by these models agree well with experimental measurements. However, the suitability of these mem...
