An atrial transseptal approach was used for embolization of a pulmonary arteriovenous aneurysm in a 56-year-old man with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. Two previous attempts at embolization of the aneurysm failed because of an inability to cannulate the feeding vessel. A transseptal puncture was performed to gain access to the left superior(More)
PURPOSE The diagnosis of invasive fungal diseases (IFD) in critical care patients (CrCP) is difficult. The study investigated the performance of a set of biomarkers for diagnosis of IFD in a mixed specialty critical care unit (CrCU). METHODS A prospective observational study in patients receiving critical care for ≥7days was performed. Serum samples were(More)
