Extractions: Radiology Quiz Case history This 38 year old woman presented at her local accident and emergency department complaining of severe pain on the right side of her chest. The pain started earlier in the day after she had a dizzy spell and fell, hitting a piece of furniture on the way down. The pain was worse on inspiration and on movement. On examination the lower, anterior ribs on the right were tender to palpation, she was in obvious distress, and the nurse reported that her respiratory rate was18, with a SpO2 of 95% on room air. An x ray examination was taken of her chest and the result is shown here. Questions (1) What acute radiological abnormality do you see on this film? Pay attention to the enlarged image. (2) What else would you be particularly careful to look for on a chest radiograph in this case? The patient complained of continuing severe pain despite receiving an initial dose of cyclimorph (morphine and cyclizine). The accident and emergency consultant decided to give additional analgesia via a series of intercostal nerve blocks.

Extractions: Mediastinal resections This is a surgical procedure done to resect or remove tumors in the mediastinum. The mediastinum is the area between the right and left pleural cavities(where the lungs are) and contains the heart, great vessels, lower esophagus and trachea, multiple lymph nodes and thymus gland. Types of tumors that may occur here include lymphomas (Hodgkin's and Non-hodgkin's), germ cell, mesenchymal and neural tumors. Referral to the Thoracic Oncology Program may be warranted in some cases. Thymectomy This is a surgical procedure done to remove part or all of the thymus gland. It is frequently performed in conjunction with medical therapy for myasthenia gravis or a thymoma. The thymus gland is located in the upper chest under the breastbone. It is composed of small lobes and is shaped somewhat like a butterfly wing over the windpipe. Hormones produced by the thymus gland are thought to affect the immune system and neuromuscular transmission although its exact role in Myasthenia Gravis is not completely understood. A thymectomy may be performed in one of two ways, the transsternal approach or the transcervical approach. Your surgeon will discuss with you which approach would be best.

She didn't seem very ill, she wasn't feverish , irritable or unable to feed. When I noticed the retraction I took her to the Children's Hospital. She and I stayed in hospital overnight for observation but she had no treatment. I don't recall noticing that her breastbone was depressed at this time, but not long afterward it became obvious. croup . Her first attack of croup happened when we were camping in the bush, and we ended up taking her to hospital where she spent the night in an oxygen tent. Later attacks weren't so bad and were resolved by using a vaporiser. shortness of breath, heart pounding painfully against her breastbone, dizziness, faintness, tingling in lips, fingers and toes and even midriff . She'd break out in a sweat and get red in the face but her lips and nails would go very pale. mild increase in beat is going to feel uncomfortable and be noticed. This began to happen to Gina much of the time she ate.

Other characters Pectus excavatum, (also called funnel chest), chest deformity with internal depression of the body of the sternum and its attached costal cartilages. The manubrium is not affected and the angle of Louis is clinically prominent. The deformity may be familial and is seen in association with Marfans syndrome , the Ehlers Danlos syndrome , myotonic dystrophy and Noonan's syndrome. The lateral chest radiograph shows the posterior displacement of the lower aspect of sternum. A frontal chest radiograph typically shows the posterior aspects of the ribs to be transversely orientated and the anterior aspects to be steeply orientated; the heart may be displaced to the left with obliteration of the lower right heart border simulating right middle lobe pathology ( Fig.1 ). The deformity often improves during early childhood although in general no further improvement is seen beyond the age of 6 years and moderate or severe deformity may warrant surgery. If an objective measurement of severity is required, CT allows calculation of a ratio of the transverse diameter of the chest to the minimum anteroposterior diameter; a ratio greater than 3.25 is considered to define moderate or severe deformity.

Extractions: I have Pectus Excavatum, commonly known as "sunken chest" or "funnel chest". My bad posture is only worsening my condition. I need a back brace or corset to help me correct my posture. Can anyone recommend a good model or make? The "Posture Corrector" is not suitable for my purpose because I need a brace that can tightly wraps around my midriff (in the front) so that it encloses my lower ribs. Thanks. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. From a Pectus Excavatum (PE) website. "The best way (to help correct mild PE) is by wearing a special orthopedic support vest. If you don't know what that is, or can't get one for some reason, don't worry, you can make one yourself. Basically it consists of two parts. The upper part is long belt that ties your shoulders back into correct position. Wrap the belt around each shoulder so that it crosses in the back to form a figure eight. From the front it should look like you are wearing a backpack or a gun shoulder holster. From the back, it should look like an eight. Don't fasten the belt too tight, it is not supposed to force the shoulders back. It's just supposed to remind you to pull your shoulders back using the muscles in your upper back. As your posture improves, tighten the belt. For the lower part of the supporter, try using an orthopedic corset which you can buy almost anywhere. Fasten the corset tightly around your midriff so that it encloses your lower ribs. Wear the supporter over a T-shirt, and wear it as often as you can."
AlphaSights - Summer 2000, Volume 10, Number 2 Pectus excavatum, often called a sunken or funnel chest, is a deformity occurring in about 1 in 600 children in which the sternum is significantly recessed http://www.baystatehealth.com/1025/3840/4221/4224/AlphaSights/985207558.html
Extractions: Pectus excavatum, often called a sunken or funnel chest, is a deformity occurring in about 1 in 600 children in which the sternum is significantly recessed into the chest. While often recognized at infancy, pectus excavatum usually becomes more apparent in early adolescence, seems to affect girls and boys equally, and is without a known cause. Children with severe deformity may experience cardiopulmonary symptoms. Previously, a four- to five-hour open surgical chest procedure was required to correct the deformity. Now, a new minimally invasive technique, called the Nuss Procedure, is being performed by Stanley H. Konefal, Jr., M.D., and Kevin P. Moriarty, M.D., pediatric surgeons on staff at Baystate Medical Center, which reduces OR time to about 60 minutes. Drs. Konefal and Moriarty were the first physicians to perform the Nuss Procedure in Massachusetts. They learned this specialized technique from Dr. Donald Nuss, a pediatric surgeon at Childrens Hospital of the Kings Daughters in Norfolk, VA. He developed the surgery using a Lorenz Pectus Bar for ten years before patenting his data. According to Dr. Moriarty, Dr. Nuss has been performing the surgery for over ten years, and has very good follow up. The new procedure offers significant advances to the previous techniques.

Progress Notes Update - Pectus Excavatum Pectus excavatum, more commonly called funnel chest, is a congenital problem in which the anterior chest wall is displaced backward, as if it were Acaved in http://www.muschealth.com/Pnotesupdate/pectus.htm
Extractions: Update on Minimally Invasive Surgical Repair of Pectus Excavatum Pectus excavatum, more commonly called funnel chest, is a congenital problem in which the anterior chest wall is displaced backward, as if it were A caved in. Chronic chest pain and reactive airway disease are frequently seen in conjunction with this abnormality. Occasionally, patients will experience respiratory, circulatory or digestive problems. In addition, the disfiguring physical appearance of this abnormality can have an enormous impact on a child s emotional and social development. Surgical correction is generally indicated. The standard open surgery for repair of pectus excavatum is an extensive operation that produces good results. Depending on the patient s age, the repair can take up to six hours to perform and occasionally requires blood transfusion. The postoperative stay averages about one week, and management of postoperative pain can be complex. For approximately two years, Drs. Andre Hebra and Edward Tagge , pediatric surgeons at MUSC Children s Hospital, have used a new minimally invasive technique to manage the repair. Originated by Donald Nuss, M.D., of Norfolk, Va., the surgery involves only two small incisions on either side of the chest wall. Overall results have been excellent. The technique results in shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times.

Extractions: Home Shrine Shriners Hospitals Hospital Directory ... Next For the past four years, church members have told Mariah Moreno that she has the voice of an angel. At age 8, she continues to amaze her audiences with her beautiful singing voice and confident stage presence. During her week-long recovery in the hospital, Mariah's teddy bear, Faith, was her constant companion, along with her parents, Mary and John Moreno. The most inspiring thing about Mariah is that she recently had corrective surgery for pectus excavatum (PE) at the Houston Shriners Hospital for Children . This condition is also known as "funnel chest" or "sunken chest" and is the most common congenital chest wall deformity. Born with a noticeable indentation in her chest, Mariah's parents were informed by her doctors that she would eventually grow out of it. By age 6, though, she began suffering from severe breathing problems and chest pains, and also began losing a patch of hair near her forehead. Doctors diagnosed it as asthma and alopecia (a disease causing permanent hair loss). "It seemed like everywhere we turned, our doctors would not address her chest defect," said Mary, Mariah's mother. "We were confident that her sunken chest was a real problem, and we prayed for a solution."
