  • [Paraffinoma with Spinal Paralysis 40 Years After Pleural Plombage for Tuberculosis]. [Case Reports]
    Kyobu Geka 2019; 72(5):344-347Arai W, Ohkawa M, … Watanabe A
  • Paraffin had been used for pleural plombage in the treatment of tuberculosis. However, paraffin use has been reported to cause late postoperative complications. A 79-year-old man was presented with an extramedullary tumor and spinal paralysis. Forty-seven years ago, he had undergone pleural plombage using paraffin for the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis. Since the extramedullary tumor was fou…
  • Navigation for Tubular Decompression of the L5 Nerve Root Ganglion after Cement Leakage via a Wiltse Approach. [Case Reports]
    Asian J Neurosurg 2019 Apr-Jun; 14(2):565-567Hartmann S, Kavakebi P, … Thomé C
  • Osteoporotic vertebral fractures are a widespread problem in the elderly population. In experienced hands, treatment procedures are safe and can be done in a minimally invasive fashion. Nevertheless, in rare cases, severe complications may occur. We present a case report of cement leakage after vertebroplasty of L5 compressing the nerve root with neurological signs and radiculopathy. An 86-year-o…
  • Surgical Treatment of Complications 55 Years After Extraperiosteal Lucite Ball Plombage for Pulmonary Tuberculosis. [Case Reports]
    Rev Port Cir Cardiotorac Vasc 2017 Jul-Dec; 24(3-4):139Calado T, Alvoeiro M, … Félix F
  • CONCLUSIONS: Despite the rapid decline in collapse therapy since the appearance of antitubercular chemotherapy, there are still such elderly patients who remain asymptomatic while carrying residual plombage material. There is no need for routine ablation of any this material, however if any foreign material becames a source of complication should be extracted without delay. As the number of living patients treated by plombage is attenuating rapidly, fewer and fewer will be seen in the future, and no one is likely to accumulate considerable experience with this problem.
  • Supercharged free omental flap plombage for empyema in a patient with an artificial pericardium. [Case Reports]
    Interact Cardiovasc Thorac Surg 2018; 26(6):1046-1048Matsumoto I, Iino K, Takemura H
  • Cavernostomy and fenestration were performed in a patient who developed a lung abscess and empyema in the left lung, which was damaged after multimodality therapy for advanced thymoma. The hospitalized patient suddenly experienced cardiopulmonary arrest due to major bleeding from the left main pulmonary artery. We immediately performed the main pulmonary arterial embolization, and the patient was…
  • Clinically undetected retinal breaks causing retinal detachment: A review of options for management. [Review]
    Surv Ophthalmol 2018 Jul - Aug; 63(4):579-588Gupta D, Ching J, Tornambe PE
  • The successful detection of retinal breaks is a critical step in rhegmatogenous retinal detachment surgery in order to prevent persistent/recurrent retinal detachments. Not all retinal breaks causing retinal detachments are obvious. Retinal breaks may be obscured by opacities that are either anterior segment related, lens related, or posterior segment related. Rules to identify breaks based on su…
  • Pulmonar plombage. [Case Reports]
    Med Clin (Barc) 2017; 149(7):323Moreno-Higueras M, Moya-Roldán S, … Ceballos-Torres Á
  • Evidence for pleural epithelial-mesenchymal transition in murine compensatory lung growth. [Journal Article]
    PLoS One 2017; 12(5):e0177921Ysasi AB, Wagner WL, … Mentzer SJ
  • In many mammals, including rodents and humans, removal of one lung results in the compensatory growth of the remaining lung; however, the mechanism of compensatory lung growth is unknown. Here, we investigated the changes in morphology and phenotype of pleural cells after pneumonectomy. Between days 1 and 3 after pneumonectomy, cells expressing α-smooth muscle actin (SMA), a cytoplasmic marker of…
