We examined the changes in isolated pulmonary artery (PA) wall tension on switching from control conditions (pH 7.38 +/- 0.01, PCO2 32.9 +/- 0.4 Torr) to isohydric hypercapnia (pH change 0.00 +/- 0.01, PCO2 change 24.9 +/- 1.1 Torr) or normocapnic acidosis (pH change -0.28 +/- 0.01, PCO2 change -0.3 +/- 0.04 Torr) and the role of the endothelium in these(More)
An adrenal "incidentaloma" is defined as an unexpected finding on radiological imaging performed for unrelated indications. Improvements in radiological technology have seen a dramatic increase in this phenomenon.
