SESSION TITLE: EBUS and Advanced Bronchoscopy PostersSESSION TYPE: Original Investigation PosterPRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 29, 2014 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMPURPOSE: We present a case series of adult patients with bronchogenic cysts diagnosed and managed with endobronchial ultrasound guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA). METHODS: Bronchoscopic records of patients with bronchogenic cysts who were diagnosed and managed with EBUS-TBNA were reviewed for clinical presentation, radiological and pathological findings, management and overall outcome...

We describe a case of purulent pericarditis presented with cardiac tamponade. A 65-year-old man was admitted to our hospital with shock by cardiac tamponade and high grade fever. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed a large amount of pericardial effusion. Surgical drainage via median sternotomy was carried out in an emergent manner. Because culture of pericardial effusion showed positive for methicillin sensitive Staphylococcus aureus and thick white purulence covering over all pericardium, purulent pericarditis was diagnosed...

The authors make a review about the indications and benefits of the use of nitrates in the treatment of acute and chronic cardiac failure, considering their use for a short and a long period. The advantages are reported, showing the reduction of pulmonary capillary wedge pressure and the increase of systolic output and consequently of the cardiac eject. This effect may be traceable both to the benefic effect on the mitral valve (perhaps incontinent), that in the pericadic "contraist". The reduction of the filling pressures increases the tolerance to the effort, delays the choice of the time for cardiac transplant and prolongs the survival with amelioration...

Total electrical alternans is an uncommon electrocardiographic abnormality in which alternation in the direction and/or amplitude of all the components (P, QRS and T) of the tracing is present. The phenomenon is seen only in association with occasional cases of pericaditis with large effusion's. Knowledge of this fact may help in the often difficult differentiation between a pericardial effusion and cardiomyopathy. An illustrative case report is presented, with a résumé of the mechanisms postulated to explain total electrical alternans...
