OBJECTIVE To evaluate the importance of stem cells derived from adipose tissue in reducing graft inflammation in a murine model of allogeneic heterotopic tracheal transplant. METHODS We performed a heterotopic tracheal allografting in dorsal subcutaneous pouch and systemically injected 5x105 mesenchymal stem cells derived from adipose tissue. The animals(More)
To the Editor: A 39-year-old woman with cerebral hemorrhage was mechanically ventilated for 6 days prior to organ retrieval. No immediate-match local recipient was available but donor lung functional assessment showed a PaO2/FIO2 311 and favorable chest X-ray and bronchoscopy findings. The donor lungs were used experimentally to test for extended perfusion(More)
We describe a case series of 35 patients with either benign (14) or malignant (21) tracheal stenosis who were treated using a novel silicone stent, the HCPA-1, designed to prevent migration. Between March 2001 and September 2008, 13 women and 22 men received 41 HCPA-1 stents. The median duration of stenting in benign cases was 457 days (range, 4-2,961(More)
PURPOSE To evaluate the frequency of symptoms of depression, suicidal ideation, suicide behavior, and hopelessness among adolescents in southern Brazil. METHODS The Self-Report Questionnaire (SRQ) was administered to a random sample of 126 community youngsters to screen for mental problems, the Montgomery-Asberg Depression Rating scale for signs and(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the impact of an aggressive treatment approach using muscle flaps or omentopexy in infections of the sternum and anterior mediastinum following sternotomy on mortality, as compared to that of a conservative treatment approach. METHODS Data were collected prior to, during and after the surgical procedures. Group A (n = 44) included(More)
The objective of this study was to retrospectively analyze risk factors associated with post-transplant lymphoproliferative disease (PTLD) in a cohort of 112 lung transplant recipients with cystic fibrosis (CF). Prior to transplantation, patients were tested for Epstein-Barr virus (EBV), human herpesvirus (HHV types 1, 2, 3, 6, and 8), herpes zoster virus,(More)
OBJECTIVE We report preliminary results obtained with urgent lung transplantation (ULTx) in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, based on a French high emergency lung allocation (HELA) system, and the impact of this system on waiting-list death. METHODS The medical records of the first 15 CF patients receiving ULTx between June 2007 and May 2010 at Hôpital(More)
Subglottic stenosis (SGS) is defined as the narrowing of the lower larynx. Difficulties in the management of subglottic stenosis, especially in the pediatric population, justify the development of experimental models. The objective of this study was to compare the two methods of experimental subglottic stenosis induction. Twenty-three dogs were randomly(More)
The objective of the following study was to evaluate antigenicity, malacia and revascularization in glycerin-preserved canine tracheal allografts. Trachea with six cartilage rings (2.4 to 3.1 cm) were distributed in three study groups: autograft (21), allograft (18) and glycerin-preserved (22). We implanted two segments from different groups in the greater(More)
Although ARDS is an uncommon complication of pneumonectomy, the associated mortality is high (ranging from 50% to 100%).(1) Here, we report the case of a patient with postpneumonectomy ARDS that was satisfactorily managed by extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO). A 31-year-old White female patient diagnosed with cystic fibrosis 10 years prior presented(More)
