Bronchilitis is one of the most common respiratory diseases in infants and early childhood (< 2 ys of age). The diagnosis is clinical and laboratory tests support only recognition of the severity level of the disease. In most cases, the main reason of inflammation are viruses: RSV, rhinovirus. In the terminal bronchioles, inflammation process includes: edema, necrosis of epithelial cells, production of mucus, and possibly some degree of bronchospasm. For decades, controversy has surrounded the treatment of bronchiolitis...

Lung transplantation (LT) represents the only available therapy for selected patients affected by end-stage pulmonary disease. Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPBP) is used, when required, during single and sequential double lung transplantation; however, it increases the risk of bleeding, early graft dysfunction, failure, and other potential side effects. We report our experience with 145 patients who underwent lung transplantations, among whom 34 required intraoperative CPBP. The indications for LT among these 34 patients were cystic fibrosis (n = 22), chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (n = 3), bronchiectasis (n = 2), primary pulmonary hypertension (n = 1), fibrosis (n = 2), pulmonary microlithiasis (n = 1), and retransplantation for obliterative bronchilitis (n = 3)...

Lung transplantation (LT) has evolved to become an important alternative in the management of patients with end-stage pulmonary disease and chronic respiratory failure. The beginnings of this technique can be traced back to the experiments of Carrel and Guthrie over a hundred years ago. However, it was not until 1963 when the first clinical experience was performed by Hardy. Clinical success did not arrive until the 1980's thanks to the works of the Toronto Lung Transplant Group. Well established criteria have been described in order to consider a patient as a potential candidate to receive a lung...

Our experience of an anaphylactic reaction to latex in a severely disabled patient led us to investigate latex allergy in 58 cases with severe motor and intellectual disabilities syndrome. Latex specific IgE, total serum IgE, and eosinophil counts in peripheral blood were evaluated, as well as past history of treatment with medical latex materials, operation and allergic disorders. Only one case who had been operated three times, had anaphylactic reaction and mild atopic dermatitis. Fifteen cases (25.9%) had latex specific IgE of class 2 or more...

BACKGROUND: Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is characterised by progressive airflow limitation that is at best partially reversible. Despite the lack of reversibility patients with stable often report symptomatic improvement with short-acting beta-2 bronchodilator medication. OBJECTIVES: To determine the clinical effectiveness and assess the adverse effects of regular treatment with short-acting beta-2 agonists bronchodilators in patients with stable COPD...

High frequency of bronchilitis, 70% of 1117 infants with respiratory infections, and clinical, radiological and laboratory features concerning partial tension of haematic gases, haematic lactate, enzymic activities of serum (CK, GPT, GOT) in 31 infants hospitalized with symptoms of shock in course of respiratory infections apparently affecting the upper respiratory tracts, are reported. This minimal respiratory pathology, evidenced in 3% of 1117 infants, defined as "minimal" viral pneumopathy, can be brought out trough a shock: lactacidosis, combined in half the cases with an increase of serum levels of CK and GPT and with normal PaO2 was ascertained in 87% of the cases...

The thickness and composition of the walls of nonrespiratory bronchioles were quantitatively assessed in groups of normal and emphysematous lungs. In both the groups there was a gradual increase in the thickness of the walls of nonrespiratory bronchiles with increasing caliber, but this change was not proportionate. Smaller bronchioles possessed thicker walls in both the groups. Bronchioles of comparable internal diameter were also found to be slightly thicker than normal in emphysematous specimens at all levels of caliber...
