Post-pleuropneumonectomy herniation of liver mimicking major pulmonary embolism


, : Post-pleuropneumonectomy herniation of liver mimicking major pulmonary embolism. Asian Cardiovascular & Thoracic Annals 14(3): E60-E62

Following right-sided pneumonectomy and hemidiaphragm resection in a 58-year-old man with epithelioid mesothelioma, acute respiratory insufficiency and life-threatening circulatory collapse developed after a forced Valsalva maneuver. Major pulmonary embolism was diagnosed on clinical grounds, however computed tomography revealed herniation of the liver into the right hemithorax.

We have synthesized and fully characterized a photochromic zinc complex with a terphenylthiazole-based ligand with a salen-like cavity. The solution stability of the complex was found to be greatly dependent on the state of the photochromic ligand...

The small nuclear RNA (snRNA)-activating protein complex (SNAPc) is essential for transcription of genes coding for the snRNAs (U1, U2, etc.). In Drosophila melanogaster, the heterotrimeric DmSNAPc recognizes a 21-bp DNA sequence, the proximal seq...

Two organic non-metallic compounds tested were ineffective against blister blight, as were 2 of the 3 metallic salts of 2-pyridinethiol-l-oxide. The cupric salt of the latter, however, was effective. Nickel chloride at 3 and 6 oz. per acre was ver...

A flow injection configuration is proposed for the speciation and determination of thallium(I) and thallium(III) in aqueous media by spectrofluorimetric detection. Thallium(I) can be determined by measuring its fluorescence as TlCl32-. Thallium(II...

Fluoroquinolones are potent anti-microbial agents with multiple effects on host cells and tissues. Previous studies have highlighted their pro-apoptotic effect on human cancer cells and an immunoregulatory role in animal models of inflammatory bow...
