Methods We reviewed our VATS decortication results in 26 patients with MPE over a 6 year period, compare with 40 patient treated with talk pleurodesis and drainage only. Major symptoms were chest pain, cough and dyspnea, and radiographic findings of pleural fluid. Trapped lung was demonstrated after MPE evacuation in all patients preoperatively. Patient(More)
Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) has become a palliative surgical method for selected patients with advanced pulmonary emphysema and disabilitating dyspnea The beneficial effects have been documented by numerous case series and by several randomized controlled trials. In well-selected patients the perioperative mortality does not exceed more than 5% in(More)
AnaDig, an IC designed for educational purposes, is described. The teaching goal of the chip is to familiarize the students with the properties of IC devices and basic building blocks. Numerous laboratory experiments are available within the same measurement environment. The temperature dependent characteristics can be obtained. The chip was prototyped and(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study is to assess the role of the pleural tent in prophylactics of prolonged alveolar air leakage and apical residual pleural cavity formation after upper lobectomy/bilobectomy. METHODS A total of 40 patients, who underwent upper lobectomy/bilobectomy were prospectively randomized into two homogeneous groups: (1) with pleural(More)
Background and methods We report a case of a giant malignant hemangiopericytoma in the left neck and involving and growing in left internal jugular, left subclvian, left brachiocephalic vein, superior vena cava (SVC) and occupying part of the right atrium. Tumor was causing severe dyspnea, dysphagia and initial SVC syndrome. A 77-year-old male was admitted(More)
The paper describes a methodology for development of LVS and LPE rule sets adapted for microelectromechanical technologies. The method is applied on an existing multipurpose MEMS process. To evaluate the accuracy and performance of the proposed method, parasitic extraction is performed on several different devices designed with the chosen MEMS technology.(More)
Background, methods and results We report herein the cases of two patients with bronchial carcinomas in the left main bronchus who were successfully treated by left sleeve pneumonectomy performed through a sternotomy incision for the first time in Bulgaria. Adequate oxygenation during tracheobronchial anastomoses was achieved by cardiopulmonary bypass in(More)
Insufficient intraopertive aerostasis is a serious, actual, and yet unsolved problem of pulmonary surgery. It is a frequent cause for the development of postoperative complications that compromise the results of surgery. The authors investigate the development and modification of the contemporary surgical methods for aerostasis--surgical techniques for(More)
