Many animal studies have shown that high peak inspiratory pressures (PIP) during mechanical ventilation can induce acute lung injury with hyaline membranes. Since 1984 we have limited PIP in patients with ARDS by reducing tidal volume, allowing spontaneous breathing with SIMV and disregarding hypercapnia. Since 1987 50 patients with severe ARDS with a “lung(More)
Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) represents 4% of newly diagnosed cancer in 2013 with a 59-82% 5-year survival depending on the tumor location. Primary presentation of lymphoma consists of lymphadenopathy or swelling of the lymph nodes and non-specific systemic symptoms such as fevers, night sweats, and weight loss.

BACKGROUND An estimated 0.2% of the population may have a unilateral nonfunctional kidney. This pre-existing condition may lead to the mistaken presumption that a ureteral injury has occurred when performing cystoscopy after hysterectomy. CASES Two cases are presented in which cystoscopy to confirm ureteral patency after hysterectomy was performed in(More)
heochromocytomas are neuroendocrine tumors that arise from chromaffin tissues, typically of the Padrenal medulla. Approximately 10% are found in extra-adrenal sites along the sympathetic chain, and as such, they are termed as paragangliomas. The urinary bladder is an unusual primary location, accounting for <0.06% of all bladder tumors and <1% of all(More)
cute bilateral renal obstruction secondary to spontaneous bleeding and clot formation is a Arare complication of patients with blood cell dyscrasias. This can occur at any time despite medical therapy and treatment. Decompression of the renal system and relief of obstruction are critical to improve renal function. Once the coagulopathy is treated and(More)
