Communicating bronchopulmonary foregut malformations (CBPFMs) are characterized by a fistula between an isolated portion of respiratory tissue (ie, a lung, a lung lobe, or a segment) and esophagus or stomach. We combine our 30-year (1959 to 1989) experience of 6 cases with 51 reported patients to propose a CBPFM classification supported by a proposed(More)
In sling (retrotracheal) left pulmonary artery (SLPA), the tracheobronchial pattern is generally considered basically normal. Analysis of dissected specimens and/or bronchograms and other preparations from five studied and 32 reported patients suggests that there are two different forms of SLPA: (1) types 1A and B, with normal TB pattern [with (A) or(More)
Renovascular disease often leads to hypertension in children. The most frequent cause is fibromuscular dysplasia of focal type affecting main and peripheral arteries. Diastolic readings in excess of 110 mm Hg with normal serum creatinine and urinalysis are suggestive of renovascular disease. Excretory urography was positive in 65% of patients with(More)
A prospective study was performed at two institutions to determine the role of magnetic resonance (MR) imaging in the evaluation of primary pediatric liver tumors. The study compared the usefulness of MR imaging and computed tomography (CT) in providing a correct diagnosis, assessing resectability, and determining tumor recurrence in 23 children with liver(More)
The use of the technique of wax-plate serial section-reconstruction, based on contiguous axial plane CT images of the upper thorax, to prepare a replica of the central air-way (trachea and major bronchi) of an infant with sling left pulmonary artery type 2B, with bridging bronchus, abortive right main bronchus, and tracheal stenosis due to absence of the(More)
Background. Obstructive jaundice is an uncommon but important clinical problem in children with cancer. Percutaneous transhepatic biliary drainage is widely used to relieve malignant biliary obstruction in adults, but its use in children has not been well described.¶Materials and methods. Six patients aged between 1 and 17 years underwent external or(More)
Surgical correction of tetralogy of Fallot (TF) has generally been associated with a reduced maximal exercise tolerance, possibly related to the ventriculotomy inherent to the intracardiac repair procedure. This study documents the exercise hemodynamics of a group of patients operated on for TF who showed similar clinical and functional characteristics, and(More)
PURPOSE To present the first 3 cases of Acanthamoeba keratitis (AK), unresponsive to medical treatment, that were successfully treated with a novel adjunctive therapy using ultraviolet light A (UVA) and riboflavin (B2). DESIGN Interventional case series. PARTICIPANTS Two patients with confirmed AK and 1 patient with presumptive AK, which were all(More)
