OBJECTIVE: To avoid the radiation injuries and use of contrast agent, we assessed the safety and efficacy of percutaneous patent ductus arteriosus closure solely under thoracic echocardiography guidance. METHODS: From June 2013 to June 2014, thirty patients (mean age: (6.3 ± 2.5) years, mean body weight:(22.5 ± 7.3) kg) with pure patent ductus arteriosus were continuously included in this study.

Authors present the case of little patient with the dissection, pseudoaneurysm and finally a rupture of the interventricular septum after the blunt thracic injury. The patient was smitten as a pedestrian by a car and during the whole period of her stay in the hospital she was showing signs of circulatory instability. Due to the current intraabdominal injuries this circulatory decompensation was first assigned to hemoperitoneum, for which the girl was operated on about 3 hours after admission.

OBJECTIVE: To assess the usefulness of the classification developed by the American Thracic Society (ATS) in the grouping of thoracic lymph nodes on CT scan. METHODS: Ten patients suffered from lymphoma (5 cases), sarcoidosis (2 cases) and metastatic lymphadenopathy (3 cases) were examinated with CT. The intrathoracic lymph nodes were grouped according to the ATS nodal classification. RESULTS: Six areas were divided on the CT scans: (1) between the upper margin of the sixth cervical vertebra and the pulmonary apex, including nodes in group 1R/L; (2) between the pulmonary apex and the upper margin of the aortic arch, including nodes in group 2R/L and 6; (3) between the upper margin of aortic arch and the carina, including nodes in group 4R/L, 5, 6 and 10R; (4) within 3 cm below carina, including nodes in group 7 and 10R/L; (5) between 3 cm from subcarina and the top of diaphragm, including nodes in group 8R/L and 14R/L; (6) intrapulmonary area, distal to the upper lobe bronchi, including nodes in group 11R/L...
