Tetralogy of Fallot (ToF) is the most common cyanotic congenital heart defect. The actual treatment relies on cardio-surgery--complete correction within the infant age. Without surgery only 10% of subjects survived 3rd decade and only 3-5% of subjects were able to survive until their 40th. This particular paper is dedicated to case of a 69-years old male subject with positive history of uncorrected ToF due to his refusal of surgery, ischemic cardiac disease NYHA III-IV and chronic kidney failure. This subject was hospitalized within the department of internal medicine due to several days of chest pain connected with lower extremities oedemas and dyspnoeic syndrome after minimal physical load...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate rehabilitation results of electrostimulation especially on joint effusion, swelling and pain recovery after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. DESIGN: A randomized controlled trial; the assessor was not blinded to the group allocation. SETTING: Orthopaedics-traumatology and physical medicine-rehabilitation departments. SUBJECTS: Twenty-nine consecutive patients underwent anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction...

BACKGROUND: Rhodococcus equi (R. equi) infection commonly occurs in grazing areas, especially in patients with AIDS or with T-lymphocyte immuno-deficiencies. Literature reviews revealed that cases radiologically and pathologically diagnosed of AIDS complicated by R. equi infection are rare. This study aimed to investigate the imaging features and pathological basis of AIDS complicated by pulmonary R. equi infection. METHODS: A total of 13 cases of AIDS complicated by pulmonary R...

Herniation of the liver into the fluid-filled pericardial sac resulting in a thoracic mass is a particularly rare form of Morgagni hernia (congenital diaphragmatic hernia of Morgagni). We report an early antenatal diagnosis of congenital diaphragmatic hernia of Morgagni with pericardium effussion at 21 weeks' gestation. Two pericardiocentesis were performed at 21 and 22 4/7 weeks' gestation because of recurrence of pericardial effussion. Regular ultrasound assessments showed progressive herniation of the liver to practically fill the right hemithorax...

The syndrome pre-eclampsia/eclampsia is a frequent entity in the obstetrical pathology and acquires interest to take to the patients to a critical state. It has repercussion in all the organism by his complications. The definitive treatment of pre-eclampsia/eclampsia is the interruption of the pregnancy. The pericardial effussion as severe complication of pre-eclampsia and Sx de HELLP is a little frequent entity. Few cases reported in Literature exists. In the Hospital Angeles Pedregal, two cases of patients embarrassed without antecedents of previous picture hypertensive, complicated are reported with severe pre-eclampsia and HELLP syndrome class II of Martin which developed pericardial effussion without presence of tamponade...

OBJECTIVES: Pleural tuberculosis, which is present in around 4% of all tuberculosis cases may resolve spontaneously or associated with progressive disease and a high recurrence rate. Recently upon exposed to cytokines and bacterial products, mesothelium has been shown to produce collagen that may be involved in pleural inflammatory responses. Prolidase is involved in the final stage of degradation in collagen catabolism. In this study we aimed to evaluate pleural fluid and serum prolidase activities in patients with tuberculous (TB) pleurisy and compared with those in non-tuberculous (non-TB) pleural effusions...

We report the case of a fiftyone-year-old woman with a past medical history of Linfoma no Hodking and a gastric adenocarcinoma with signet ring cells. She came to our institution with a twenty month history of dysnea secondary to pleural effussion, bilateral lower extremity edema and probably had ascitis. On CT and US two bilateral pelvic masses were found and biopsied. The anatomopathological analysis showed bilateral ovarian implants from signet ring cell adenocarcinoma (Krukenberg tumor). This patient developed a PseudoMeigs syndrome consisting on malignant ovarian tumor asociated with ascitis and pleural effusion without malignant cells...

UNLABELLED: The incidence of empyema thoracis in children seems to be increasing. The objective [corrected] of this study is to propose a rational initial treatment of parapneumonic effusions in order to reduce hospital stay and late-stage empyema complications. Medical records of 33 children presenting parapneumonic effusions who required any surgical therapy between 1997 and 2002 were reviewed. They were grouped as (I) successful management with chest tube, (II) successful management with intrapleural instillation of urokinase and (III) successful surgical treatment: (IIIa) thoracoscopy or (IIIb) thoracotomy...

To stop nasal bleeding we use a manually operated combined bipolar suction and coagulation instrument under microscopic or endoscopic control, managed by one hand. As a result of the simultaneous suctioning of blood, the bleeding source can be coagulated even during the most effussive bleeding. Since the instrument is a combination of suction tube and bipolar coagulation sound, it can perform three functions at the same time: inspection of the source of bleeding, sucking off the blood, and coagulation. This does away with the need of nasal tamponade which most patients find highly disagreable...

20 children with hemophilia were examined with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) to determine if MRI could be used to assess hemophilic arthropathy, especially in the early stages. 28 joints of the appendicular skeleton were imaged, including 17 knees, 10 ankles and 1 elbow. The results were compared to clinical and plain radiographic assessments and to the surgical findings when synovectomy was performed. MRI is able to evaluate the components of hemophilic arthropathy such as fluid effussion, synovial hypertrophy, the status of the articular cartilage, and bony lesions...

Review of 208 patients with bacterial meningitis, admitted from march 1, 1971 to march 1, 1976. Incidence peak was found in Winter (december to march). Etiologically N. meningitiditis, 39, 9%, was the mainly predominate germ. In 49% of the patients C.S.F. cultures were negative, significantly influenced by the previous treatment with antibiotics (P less than 0.001). Cure was obtained in 86.5% Convulsions, 12%, were the most frequent complication, followed by subdural effussion, 3.8%, and arthritis, 2.4%. Twenty patients died, 9...

By flow microfluorometry the DNA distribution curve of the cell nuclei of 39 adnex tumors, mainly ovarian carcinomas, was measured. 47% of the malignant tumor cell populations were diploid, the other ones were heteroploid (i.e. polyploid, tetraploid, aneuploid stem lines). Heteroploid tumors had the worse prognosis. In 8 cases effusions were analysed (7 ascites, 1 pleura). It is possible to diagnose a malignant tumor from effussion fluid by impulse cytophotometry. But in one case a great difference was found between the primary tumor and the ascites fluid, which only shows the DNA distribution of an irritative effusion...
