    To identify microRNAs (miRNAs, miRs) with potential roles in lung fibrogenesis, we performed genome-wide profiling of miRNA expression in lung tissues from a silica-induced mouse model of pulmonary fibrosis using microarrays. Seventeen miRNAs were selected for validation via qRT-PCR based on the...

    We report the first case in the medical literature of a pneumothorax complicating fine needle aspiration cytology (FNAC) of a breast lump in a woman with a mild form of Poland's syndrome. The pneumothorax was treated conservatively. This is the first case of breast FNA-related pneumothorax seen...

    Background: Usefulness of prophylactic antibiotics following tube thoracostomy remains controversial in the literature. In this study, we aimed to investigate the consequences of closed tube thoracostomy for primary spontaneous pneumothorax without the use of antibiotics. Methods: One-hundred...

    Background: The occurrence of occupational lung diseases is decreasing due to improvements in occupational health in recent years; however, silicosis and its complications remain important occupational health problems. We have studied the role of emphysema and bullae as predictive factors of...

    Pneumothorax is a disease of the lung, defined as the presence of air in the pleural space. Most cases of pneumothorax occur spontaneously. A spontaneous pneumothorax can be defined as a primary or secondary pneumothorax. The majority of patients will present with sudden onset of chest pain,...

    Objectives: Needle decompression of tension pneumothorax in soldiers of the French infantry has a risk for failure when the standard procedure that involves the insertion of a 14-gauge, 5-cm catheter into the 2nd intercostal space (ICS) is used. This study measured the chest wall thickness (CWT)...
