Left atrium mass in a patient with breast cancer: a case report

Background Left atrial thrombi have traditionally been treated with heparin and warfarin, and many physicians have limited experience with direct oral anticoagulants such as apixaban. Furthermore, the efficacy of apixaban for the treatment of left atrial thrombi has not been established. We experienced a case of left atrial thrombus formation before breast cancer surgery, which...

Effects of anesthetics on early postoperative cognitive outcome and intraoperative cerebral oxygen balance in patients undergoing lung surgery: a randomized clinical trial

. Masahiko Kawaguchi, Hitoshi Furuya, Takashi Tojo, Michitaka Kimura, Takeshi Kawaguchi, and Shigeki Taniguchi contributed to manuscript review. Satoki Inoue and Tadashi Nishiwada contributed to blood sample ... and hemodynamic data collection. Takashi Tojo, Michitaka Kimura, Takeshi Kawaguchi, and Shigeki Taniguchi obtained informed consent from patients and contributed to postoperative care. Masahiko

Distribution of hydrogen sulfide (H2S)-producing enzymes and the roles of the H2S donor sodium hydrosulfide in diabetic nephropathy

Background Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) has recently been found to play beneficial roles in ameliorating several diseases, including hypertension, atherosclerosis and cardiac/renal ischemia–reperfusion injuries. Cystathionine β-synthase (CBS) and cystathionine γ-lyase (CSE), the main enzymes in the transsulfuration pathway, catalyze H2S production in mammalian tissues. However, the...

Engineering bioartificial tracheal tissue using hybrid fibroblast-mesenchymal stem cell cultures in collagen hydrogels☆

We aimed at providing the first in vitro and in vivo proof-of-concept for a novel tracheal tissue engineering technology. We hypothesized that bioartificial trachea (BT) could be generated from fibroblast and collagen hydrogels, mechanically supported by osteogenically-induced mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) in ring-shaped 3D-hydrogel cultures, and applied in an experimental model...

Effects of a simple intraoperative intrathoracic hyperthermotherapy for lung cancer with malignant pleural effusion or dissemination☆

We examined the effect of a simple intraoperative intrathoracic hyperthermotherapy (IIH) and a simple intraoperative intrathoracic hyperthermo-chemotherapy (IIHC) on malignant pleural effusion and/or dissemination with primary non-small lung cancer. This study included 19 patients who had malignant pleural effusion and/or dissemination recognized for the first time at the time of...

Influence of the site of lobectomy and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease on pulmonary function: a follow-up analysis

The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the influence of the site of lobectomy and the presence of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) on pulmonary function at different postoperative periods. The patients were divided into groups of COPD and non-COPD patients, and the differences between observed and predicted postoperative values of pulmonary function at...

Changes in ventilatory capacity, exercise capacity, and pulmonary blood flow after lobectomy in patients with lung cancer – which lobectomy has the most loss in exercise capacity?☆

The aim of this study was to compare the changes in ventilatory capacity, exercise capacity, and pulmonary blood flow (PBF) in the operated lung after lobectomy according to the lobe resected. Thirty-one patients underwent right upper lobectomy (RUL), 26 left upper lobectomy (LUL), 24 right lower lobectomy (RLL), and 25 left lower lobectomy (LLL). Pulmonary function tests...

Exercise capacity after lobectomy in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

The aim of this study is to clarify whether patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) lose less exercise capacity after lobectomy than do those without COPD, to the same extent as ventilatory capacity and lobectomy for selected patients with severe emphysema improve exercise capacity like ventilatory capacity. Seventy non-COPD patients (N group), 16 mild COPD...
