Hydatid disease (HD) is a worldwide parasitic disease. Echinococcosis may involve many organs but affect most commonly liver and lungs. The location of echinococcal cysts inside pulmonary artery is extremely rare. Radiologic findings range from purely cystic lesions to a completely solid appearance. Hydatid cysts (HC) can be solitary or multiple and varies size. Pulmonary artery embolism of HC can be symptomatic or asymptomatic. When symptomatic, we see the chest pain, dyspnea, cough, hemoptysis and sometimes acute cor pulmonale or sudden death secondary to massive giant pulmonary artery embolism of HC...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary embolism is associated with high mortality in patients with hypotension or circulatory shock. However, the association between some clinical variables and mortality is still unclear in hemodynamically stable patients. OBJECTIVES: To derive an in-hospital mortality risk stratification model in hemodynamically stable patients with pulmonary embolism. METHODS: This is a prospective multicenter cohort study of 582 consecutive patients admitted in emergency units or intensive care units with clinically suspected pulmonary embolism and whose diagnosis was confirmed by one or more of the following tests: pulmonary arteriography, spiral CT angiography, magnetic resonance angiography, Doppler echocardiography, pulmonary scintigraphy, or venous duplex scan...

The tumour pulmonary micro-embolism is a rare condition characterized by the occlusion of pulmonary small arteries, arteriolas, and alveolar capillaries septales, accompanied of trombosis. Occasionally the development of pulmonary hypertension is the first manifestation of an occult neoplasia, in series of autopsies, an incidence from 3 to 26% has been reported in solid tumors, being clinical evident in 8%. Few cases have documented the development of this condition in patients with carcinoma hepatocelular, we report the case of a 16-year-old male who comes to the emergency with signs of cardiac insufficiency and cor pulmonare whose anatomopatological study confirmed a tumour massive microembolic compromise at pulmonary level and hepatocarcinoma...

A 38-year-old woman with idiopathic scoliosis (right convex thoracic scoliosis, 78 degrees; left convex lumbar curvature, 75 degrees) died suddenly. Forensic autopsy and histopathologic examination revealed chronic congestive oedema, numerous cavities and atrophic changes of heart. These changes, including both respiratory changes and biventricular failure caused by hypoplastic cardiac changes, were due to a deformed thoracic cage. This case illustrates that not only abnormalities of respiratory function and cor pulmonare, but also hypoplastic cardiac changes, may cause sudden death in a patient with untreated scoliosis...

Functional Jaw Orthopedics (FJO) is medically efficacious, exceptionally unique and unequaled in speed of a cure for a number of very common medical conditions currently only "managed" by modern medicine. This publication combines scientific citations and case presentations to show how and why dentists who advocate and provide early FJO treatment will lead a New Dental-Medical Renaissance into some of the most profound areas of medicine. Nocturnal enuresis (chronic bed-wetting) otitis media (ear infections), cor pulmonare, cognitive thought, vision, hearing, cardio-pulmonary dysfunction, and myocardial infarction have FJO dental-medical relationships...

Pulmonary embolism shows a high mortality especially for the difficulty in establishing an early correct diagnosis. The pathophysiology and thus the clinical manifestations of pulmonary embolism (PE) are essentially conditioned by three factors: the size of the embolus, the pre-existing cardiorespiratory condition, the release caused by the embolus, of some substances or the activation of reflexes which tend to worsen the purely mechanical consequences of PE. The clinical manifestations resulting from the combination of these factors result in three clinical patterns: acute cor pulmonare, pulmonary infarction, acute dyspnea...

Vasodilator agents have been used to decrease pulmonary arterial pressure in patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTPH). A case is reported of a patient who had a severe hemodynamic deterioration after 10 mg of sublingual nifedipine. A review of cases of CTPH treated with vasodilators is also discussed.

The authors evaluated the respiratory capacity of 73 patients with untreated scoliosis of varying etiology, site, age and severity. Twenty-six of these patients were also evaluated from a haemodynamic point of view by means of a right cardiac catheterisation. The results, in conformity with the most significant data reported in the literature, confirm that scoliosis causes cardiorespiratory insufficiency of varying extent in relation to age of onset, site and severity. The initial respiratory deficit is of the restrictive type and is fairly well tolerated...

Severe pulmonary hypertension presenting as acute cor pulmonare was observed in a HIV positive heroin addict. The usual aetiological investigations were negative. The apparently primary pulmonary hypertension was resistant oxygen and vasodilator therapy and was fatal in 6 months. Anatomopathological examination revealed the presence of talc microemboli in the pulmonary arterioles, severe medial hypertrophy and fibrous subendothelial thickening. The presence of the talc suggests that the pulmonary hypertension in this case was due to obstruction of the pulmonary vascular bed by the obstructive arterial lesions, despite the context of HIV infection...

A patient with symptoms of coronary artery disease is presented. ECG changes, chest X-ray, echocardiography as well as ventilation-perfusion study excluded coronary artery disease and confirmed cor pulmonare chronicum and pulmonary hypertension. Patophysiological aspects and clinical symptoms are also discussed.
