No operative complications occurred.
The need of mobile microscope is escalating as well as the demand of high quality optical components in low price. We report here a novel needle moving technique to fabricate milli-size lens together with thermal assist moldless method. Our proposed protocol is able to create a high tensile strength structure of the lens and its base which is beneficial for(More)
Diagnostic percutaneous transthoracic needle aspiration biopsy (TNAB) under fluoroscopic or ultrasound guidance was performed in 195 patients with peripheral lung lesions. Final diagnosis was confirmed in 178 cases. These consisted of 150 cases of malignant and 28 cases of non-malignant lung lesions. Most cases of the latter belonged to the infectious(More)

Patients were followed-up until death or survival as of September 1997. Survival durations for different stages were analysed by Kaplan-Meier analysis and(More)
Three cases of intrapulmonary teratoma are described. A specific symptom of trichoptysis occurred in two patients. The other presented with only recurrent hemoptysis. All were treated by lobectomy of the affected lung. Pathologic examination in each specimen showed that the tumor had a cystic portion which was connected to the bronchial system and contained(More)
The present study examined the use of video thoracoscopic lung biopsy (VTLB) in diffuse interstitial lung disease, in comparison with open lung biopsy (OLB). Twenty and fifteen patients underwent VTLB and OLB, respectively, from 1987 to 1997 at the Central Chest Hospital, Thailand. Data in mean (SD). The mean age was 39 years in both groups. VTLB yielded(More)
