A case of bleeding pulmonary artery pseudoaneurysm secondary to squamous cell lung cancer is reported. The patient presented with massive hemoptysis, diagnosis was made with multidetector computed tomography, and the pseudoaneurysm was successfully embolized with platinum coils. Hemoptysis ceased following the procedure.

    Objectives: Radical resection is the therapy of choice in non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). However, even in early stages (T1N0, T2N0) up to 35% of patients will experience recurrence. The aim of this retrospective study was to evaluate the prognostic influence of lymph vessel or blood vessel...

    This study aimed to investigate the expression of Bmi-1 in lung squamous cell carcinoma tissues and the relationship between Bmi-1 and the epithelial-mesenchymal transition. RT-PCR and western blot analysis were performed to detect the expression of Bmi-1, E-cadherin, and Vimentin in 56 cases of...
