Aims: The purpose of the current trial was to test the hypothesis that breathing oxygen-enriched air increases exercise performance of patients with pulmonary arterial or chronic thrombo-embolic pulmonary hypertension (PAH/CTEPH) and to investigate involved mechanisms. Methods and results: Twenty-two patients with PAH/CTEPH, eight women, means ± SD 61 ± 14 years, resting mPAP 35 ± 9mmHg, PaO2 ambient air >7.3 kPa, underwent four bicycle ergospirometries to exhaustion on different days, while breathing oxygen-enriched (FiO2 0...

Venous air embolism is a rare but recognized complication of posterior spinal fusion surgery and epidural placement using a loss of resistance to air technique. We report a case of a probable venous air embolism causing cardiac arrest in a 10-year-old girl undergoing posterior spinal fusion in the prone position. The most likely source of the embolism was injection of air into the epidural space from a loss of resistance to air technique. This case also demonstrates the potential for paradoxical cerebral embolism in the absence of an intracardiac defect...

Objective Emphysematous cystitis (EC) has a high mortality rate compared with urinary tract infection without emphysema. However, its prognostic factors have yet to be determined. The presence of venous gas is suspected to be a rare, adverse prognostic factor of EC. However, all four previously reported cases improved. We hypothesized that venous gas is not an adverse prognostic factor of EC and aimed to assess the effect of venous gas on the EC prognosis. Methods Medical records were reviewed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: This study was conducted to determine the risk factors, nature, and outcomes of "never events" following open adult cardiac surgical procedures. Understanding of these events can reduce their occurrence, and thereby improve patient care, quality metrics, and cost reduction. METHODS: "Never events" for patients included in the Nationwide Inpatient Sample who underwent coronary artery bypass graft, heart valve repair/replacement, or thoracic aneurysm repair between 2003-2011 were documented...

OBJECTIVE: Systemic air embolism (AE) is a rare but feared complication of transthoracic biopsy with potentially fatal consequences. The aim of the study was to assess the effect of patient positioning during transthoracic biopsy on preventing systemic AE. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We compared a historical control group of 610 patients (group 1) who underwent transthoracic biopsy before the implementation of measures to prevent systemic AE during transthoracic biopsy and a group of 1268 patients (group 2) who underwent biopsy after the measures were implemented...

We report the experience of a Level I trauma center in the management of blunt renal injury during a 5-year period, with special attention to those treated using angiography with embolization. The institutional trauma registry was queried for all patients with blunt renal injury between September 1, 2009 and August 30, 2014. Each injury was graded using the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma guidelines. Patients that underwent angiography with embolization were reviewed for case-specific information including imaging findings, treatment, materials used, clinical course, and mortality...

Objective To assess the application of high-pitch CT pulmonary angiography (CTPA) at 70 kV tube voltage with 15 ml contrast medium using third-generation dual-source CT. Methods A total of 70 patients with clinically suspected pulmonary embolism were randomly divided into two groups: group A (n=35) underwent CTPA on conventional scanning mode (120 kV,80 ml contrast medium);and group B (n=35) underwent CTPA on high-pitch scanning mode at 70 kV tube voltage with 15 ml contrast medium. The CT values and standard deviations of the main pulmonary artery,apical segment of right upper pulmonary lobe (S1),and posterior basal segment of the right lower pulmonary lobe (S10),anterior thoracic air,and back muscles were measured...

RATIONALE: Arterial partial pressure of oxygen (PaO2), and oxygen saturation (SaO2) are commonly measured in respiratory practice, but arterial oxygen content (CaO2) refers to the volume of oxygen delivered to the tissues per unit blood volume. CaO2 is calculated from SaO2 and the hemoglobin concentration in blood, recognizing that each gram of hemoglobin can transport approximately 1.34mls of oxygen when fully saturated. OBJECTIVES: To prospectively evaluate serial changes in CaO2 in man, incorporating and excluding dynamic changes to oxygenation and hemoglobin parameters that may occur during life...

INTRODUCTION: Empyema and bronchopleural fistula are well known complications after thoracic surgery. We report a case of refractory air leakage of bronchopleural fistula in a patient with empyema that was successfully treated by endobronchial embolization using Endobronchial Watanabe Spigots (EWSs). PRESENTATION OF CASE: A 71-year-old man underwent esophagectomy for primary esophageal cancer. A right empyema with bronchopleural fistula (BPF) developed four months after surgery...

The authors deal with a case of a double homicide, the parental murder made by their older son, which was committed by a combination of stabbing and cutting wounds. The perpetra-tor tried to hide the bodies, so he doused them with gasoline and set fire to them on a lonely forest road. Then he ran over the remains by his car. The cause of death was in both cases open wound of the neck - autopsy findings of the woman´s body testified for a blood aspi-ration, on the man´s body it was not clear for a partial charring, so the possibilities were blood aspiration, air embolism or external bleeding with haemorrhagic shock...

Cerebral venous air embolism is a relatively rare condition that arises from iatrogenic or traumatic introduction of air into the venous system. We describe the ultrasonographic findings in a 1-day-old infant with iatrogenic retrograde cerebral venous air embolism, which to our knowledge, is the earliest case reported in the literature to date. This case highlights the role of cerebral ultrasonography in the detection and surveillance of cerebral venous air embolism in neonates.

For the resection of pulmonary ground glass opacity (GGO) or non-palpable nodule on video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), preoperative computed tomography (CT)-guided VATS marker pricking is usually performed. Recently, air embolisms after VATS marker pricking have been reported to be serious problems. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the usefulness of intraoperative cone beam CT images on VATS to avoid preoperative VATS marker pricking. The CT number of the both GGO and nodule indicate the range from -200 to -800 HU in general...

Cerebral arterial air embolism (CAAE), although infrequent, is a complication that can occur at any time during an invasive medical procedure. We experienced two cases of CAAE during cerebral angiography accidentally. The author reports the two cases of CAAE wherein air emboli dissolved spontaneously and immediately under normal atmospheric pressure, not under therapeutic hyperbaric environment. One of the cases shows entire dissolution of the air embolus on the moving image. This report shows that arterial air embolus can be absorbed spontaneously, and air embolus size is one of the factors that influence air embolus dissolution besides hyperbaric oxygen condition...

Digestive endoscopic procedures have become increasingly common diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in hospitals. Generally they are safe procedures and complications, though infrequent, can occur and are potentially lethal. As the number of procedures performed increases, the complications arising are likely to become more frequent, so it is advisable to bear this in mind when establishing early diagnosis and treatment. Cerebral air embolism is a rare complication after a digestive endoscopic procedure, although in the case of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), may be as high as 10%...

Epidural anesthesia is a versatile technique widely used in treating lumbar spinal pain syndromes. Complications during these procedures can arise either from needle placement or from administration of medication. Potential risks include infection, hematoma, intravascular or subdural injections of medication, direct nerve trauma, air embolism, entry into a disc space, urinary retention, radiation exposure, and hypersensitivity reactions. The objective of this article is to review the complications of lumbar epidural injections and discuss the potential pitfalls related to these procedures...
