Key words: tracheal
stenosis, tracheomalacia, dyspnea, anesthesia, nitinol wire stent, balloon dilation, intubation, avian, eclectus parrot, Eclectus roratus
In the early days of critical care, rubber endotracheal tubes were used with high-pressure, low-volume cuffs that inevitably transmitted a high pressure to the tracheal
wall when inflated to occlusive pressures.
The posterior tracheal
wall lacks cartilaginous support, which is provided only by the thin band of the trachealis muscle.
In this case, it seems likely that the failure to remove the sutures led to their subsequent migration through the tracheal
wall, and the resultant foreign-body reaction led to the development of the subglottic stenosis.
resembles that of Aleuroclava gordoniae (Takahashi) but differs from it by the presence of median tubercles on the abdominal segments, position of cephalic setae, and by the absence of a minute tubercle associated with each thoracic tracheal
Endotracheal intubation is associated with varying degrees of tracheal
Arthur Ernest Guedel (1883 to 1956) is well known for several major developments in anaesthesia: charts of the stages of anaesthesia (1), inflatable cuffs for tracheal
tubes (2) and the Guedel oropharyngeal airway (3).
We present a case of a symptomatic 5-month-old girl who had a type II right-sided tracheal
bronchus on computed tomography (CT), which was later confirmed on bronchography.
In November 2011, the Hollistone MA-based company announced that a simpler procedure, a tracheal
transplant, had been completed using stem cells grown in a bioreactor.
Washington, Nov 24 (ANI): Scientists have come up with an artificial trachea made with patient's own cells, which will help in performing successful transplant surgeries on patients suffering from tracheal
The mass appeared to arise from the right anterolateral tracheal
wall and invade the adjacent mediastinum.
The nonvascular stent market also includes ureteral, biliary and pancreatic, esophageal, and bronchial and tracheal
MINNEAPOLIS--An automated analysis of tracheal
breath sounds while awake was predictive of obstructive sleep apnea judging from the findings of a small study.
This structure, which is designed to replace a tracheal
segment, must be sufficiently rigid to support the proximal insertion of a neosphincter that opens during respiration and closes during the passage of a food bolus and, at best, would include phonatory capabilities.
These samples showed an antispasmodic effect on tracheal
smooth muscle strips pre-contracted with high [K.
