INTRODUCTION: Both fibrosing mediastinitis (FM) and bronchial anthracofibrosis (BAF) are unique diseases. The combined appearance of FM and BAF is extremely rare. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical features of patients with coexisting FM and BAF. METHOD: Between January 2003 and December 2015, a total of eight patients were diagnosed at the Peking Union Medical College Hospital as having combined FM and BAF. The clinical presentations, radiographic features, and bronchoscopic findings of the eight patients were reviewed...

Background To examine the expression of D-dimer, fibrinogen (FIB), leukocyte, C-reactive protein (CRP) and tissue factor (TF) released from monocyte in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients with or without venous thromboembolism (VTE) and analyze the correlation, to explore the possible mechanisms. Methods Seventy two patients confirmed the diagnosis of lung cancer, among whom 10 with VTE were enrolled into the study from November 2012 to January 2014 in the First Affiliated Hospital of Fujian Medical University, 30 healthy subjects were also enrolled as the control group...

INTRODUCTION: Tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase 5 (ACP5), which is essential for bone resorption and osteoclast differentiation, promotes cell motility through the modulation of focal adhesion kinase phosphorylation. This study seeks to elucidate the association of ACP5 expression and the clinicopathologic characteristics of patients with lung adenocarcinoma Methods: The expression of ACP5 was measured by Immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis in lung adenocarcinoma and matched tumor-adjacent tissues, and the χ2 test was applied to analyze the correlation between ACP5 expression and clinicopathologic features...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Infrared thermal imaging (IRTI) is a new technique for detecting deep vein thrombosis (DVT) based on DVT's infrared presentation and distribution characteristics (PDCs). A method that is singularly sensitive to DVT is needed. We therefore enrolled 157 subjects with suspected lower extremity DVT in a double-blind, controlled clinical trial using IRTI and Doppler compression ultrasonography (CPUS) to verify the clinical value of IRTI. METHODS: An IRTI system could precisely measure and store real-time thermal images...

OBJECTIVES: The influence of blood group antigens on cancerogenesis is shown for distinct tumor types, yet the impact of Rhesus blood group antigens in lung cancer is not clarified. MATERIALS AND METHODS: To investigate the impact of Rhesus blood groups a non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) collective (n=1,047) was analyzed retrospectively. Using a second cohort of n=340 primarily operated stage I-III NSCLC patients, we evaluated immunohistochemistry of CD47-antibody stained tissue samples in correlation to histopathologic subtype and Rhesus blood group...

INTRODUCTION: Very few studies have compared long-term mortality in pneumonic (pAECOPD) vs non-pneumonic (npAECOPD) acute exacerbations of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). OBJECTIVE: To compare long-term survival in patients with pAECOPD and npAECOPD. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective audit study of all hospitalizations for COPD from 1 January to 31 December 2005 in three Scandinavian hospitals. Study inclusion criteria were patients discharged with one of the following ICD-10 discharge diagnoses: (1) primary diagnoses J43-J44 (emphysema or COPD) irrespective of secondary diagnosis; (2) main diagnosis J96 (respiratory insufficiency) + secondary diagnosis J44 (COPD) and (3) main diagnosis J13-18 (pneumonia) + secondary diagnosis J44 (COPD)...

BACKGROUND: Small cell lung cancer (SCLC) is a distinct clinical and pathological entity within the spectrum of lung cancer. It was observed that the relative age distribution of the disease changed over years. METHODS: Surveillance, epidemiology and end results (SEER) database (1973-2013) was utilized to determine the incidence, presentation and treatment outcomes of elderly patients (>70 years) with SCLC. Join point regression analysis was then conducted to analyze age-adjusted trends in incidence for the elderly as well as the whole SCLC population...

BACKGROUND: Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a chronic andprogressive fibrotic disease limited to the lungs.The course of disease varies widely, with some patients experiencing acute respiratory deterioration, a conditioncalled acute exacerbations of IPF (AE-IPF). The risk factors contributing to AE-IPF are unclear. This systematic review and meta-analysis investigatedthe risk factors for AE-IPF. METHODS: Studies ofrisk factors for AE-IPF were identified in Medline, EMBASE and Cochrane databases...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationships between fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FENO) and clinical characteristics and outcomes in patients with subacute cough. METHODS: Patients with subacute cough (n = 189) after upper respiratory tract infection were enrolled in this single-center prospective study, and were divided into low- (<25 ppb) and high- (≥25 ppb) FENO groups. Empirical therapies (without inhaled or systemic corticosteroids) were prescribed based on clinical experience and follow-up until the disease course reached 8 weeks...

OBJECTIVE: To compare the safety and efficacy between using a small-diameter tube-assisted bronchoscopic balloon dilatation (BBD) and the traditional BBD in the treatment of benign tracheal stenosis. METHODS: A retrospective study included fifty-eight patients with benign tracheal stenosis from August 2009 to December 2014 was made.

BACKGROUND: Levels of plasma brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) have been shown to be elevated in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) especially in connection with cor pulmonale (CP) and the late stages of the disease. BNP is also raised in left sided heart failure which sometimes coincides with COPD. Whether BNP is elevated in subjects with mild-moderate stable COPD and normal left ventricular function is not clear. OBJECTIVE: To investigate BNP levels in subjects with mild-moderate COPD and normal left ventricular function...

BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), characterized by recurrent partial or complete pharyngeal closure, resulting in apnea or hypopnea, is closely associated with cardiovascular disorders (CVDs). Elevated red cell distribution width (RDW) and serum uric acid (SUA) levels have also been associated with CVDs and the consequent mortality. The aim of this study is to determine SUA levels and RDW in patients with OSA which is major a risk factor for CVDs. METHODS: This was a retrospective study involving 600 subjects evaluated by polysomnography...

INTRODUCTION: Patients after lung transplantation (LuTx) were found to present oral health deficiencies. The investigation of potentially underlying or influencing factors appears to be of clinical relevance. OBJECTIVES: Aim of this study was to evaluate the oral health related quality of life (OHRQoL) in a group of patients after LuTx and compare this to a healthy control group (HC). Furthermore, the influence of dental and periodontal condition, as well as specific factors like immunosuppression, time after LuTx and causal underlying disease should be investigated...

INTRODUCTION: Patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) frequently experience concurrent comorbidities; therefore, risk assessment for major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs) is very important. OBJECTIVES: We explored the association between COPD and risk of MACEs with three common clinical events: acute myocardial infarction (AMI), ischemic stroke (IS), and cardiovascular death (CVD). METHODS: We evaluated the predictive value of the CHA2DS2-VASc score (congestive heart failure [C], hypertension [H], age [A], diabetes [D], stroke [S], and vascular disease [VASc]) for MACEs in COPD patients...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of the study was to describe potential shared risk factors for incident asthma and COPD in a population-based, 9-year follow-up study. METHODS: From a cohort of 1191 individuals, aged 20-44, who participated in baseline survey including spirometry, bronchial challenge, and skin prick test (SPT) 742 subjects (62%) were reexamined at follow-up in 2012-2014. RESULTS: A total of 27 incident cases of asthma and 22 cases of COPD were identified at follow-up corresponding to an incidence rate of 5...
