Spontaneous Pneumomediastinum: Experience in 18 Adult Patients
Spontaneous pneumomediastinum (SPM) is defined as the presence of air in the mediastinum, developing in the absence of traumatic, iatrogenic, or preceding pulmonary pathologies (emphysema, chronicExpand
Giant endobronchial hamartoma resected by fiberoptic bronchoscopy electrosurgical snaring
Less than 1% of lung neoplasms are represented by benign tumors. Among these, hamartomas are the most common with an incidence between 0.025% and 0.32%. In relation to the localization, hamartomasExpand
Bronchus sign on CT in peripheral carcinoma of the lung: value in predicting results of transbronchial biopsy.
The bronchus sign on CT represents the presence of a bronchus leading directly to a peripheral pulmonary lesion. We investigated the value of this sign in predicting the results of transbronchialExpand
CT–Pathologic Correlation in Nodular Bronchioloalveolar Carcinoma
Objective We retrospectively reviewed CT and pathologic examinations in resected nodular bronchioloalveolar carcinomas (BACs) to correlate the histology with the appearance of the nodules onExpand
Patterns of recurrence of bronchioloalveolar cell carcinoma after surgical resection: a radiological, histological, and immunohistochemical study.
PURPOSE Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma (BAC) is a subtype of lung adenocarcinoma whose incidence is raising. Bronchioloalveolar carcinoma has a tendency to involve diffusely the lung. No agreementExpand
Chronic infiltrative lung diseases: value of gadolinium-enhanced MRI in the evaluation of disease activity--early report.
STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine the value of gadolinium-enhanced MRI in the assessment of disease activity in chronic infiltrative lung diseases (CILDs). DESIGN Retrospective study. SETTINGExpand
Carcinomatous solitary pulmonary nodules: evaluation of the tumor-bronchi relationship with thin-section CT.
To investigate the value of computed tomography (CT) for depicting the relationship between carcinomatous solitary pulmonary nodules and the bronchial tree and predicting the results of variousExpand
Chronic transverse sternal fracture. Role of CT scan and repair by an alternative use of the Synthes-Titanium Sternal Fixation System.
Chest wall fractures, including injuries of the sternum, usually heal spontaneously without specific treatment. However sometimes, they need surgical treatment. To treat these patients the selectionExpand
Ground-glass attenuation in nodular bronchioloalveolar carcinoma: CT patterns and prognostic value.
PURPOSE The purpose of our study was to assess the CT patterns and prognostic value of ground-glass attenuation in nodular bronchioloalveolar carcinoma (BAC). METHOD We retrospectively reviewed CTExpand
Small bronchogenic carcinomas presenting as solitary pulmonary nodules. Bioptic approach guided by CT-positive bronchus sign.
To evaluate the utility of the CT bronchus sign in making a choice between transbronchial biopsy (TBB) and transthoracic needle aspiration (TTNA) as the first diagnostic procedure in a patient with aExpand
