    Intrapulmonary arteriovenous anastomoses (IPAVs) are large diameter connections that allow blood to bypass the lung capillaries and may provide a route for right-to-left embolus transmission. These anastomoses are recruited by exercise and catecholamines and hypoxia. Yet, whether IPAVs are...

    Abstract. Gastrointestinal toxicity from hepatic arterial infusion (HAI) of floxuridine in patients with liver metastases is probably due to extrahepatic perfusion or to partial escape of the drug from first-pass liver extraction. The aim of this study was to verify the role of...

    We sought to identify and characterize the abnormal vascular structures responsible for pulmonary arteriovenous shunting following the Glenn cavopulmonary shunt. Superior cavopulmonary shunt is commonly performed as part of the staged pathway to total cavopulmonary shunt to treat univentricular...

    We report a case of an ischaemic stroke secondary to an isolated pulmonary arteriovenous malformation. In this case, transoesophageal echocardiogram played a pivotal role in shunt identification, exclusion of atrial septal defect, and definitive diagnosis and localization of the pulmonary...

    Presents the case of a woman with both pulmonary embolism and a pulmonary arteriovenous malformation where an embolus fortuitously occluded the malformation leading to a paradoxial improvement in oxygenation. Case history; Complications; Treatment; Possibility of performance of shunt reopening.

    This article presents a study assessing whether platypnea and orthodeoxia occur in Fontan patients. Platypnea-orthodeoxia is an uncommon syndrome characterized by dyspnea and deoxygenation accompanying a postural change to upright position from a recumbent one. It has been noted that this...

    As pulmonary artery obstruction results in proliferation of the bronchial circulation in a variety of species, we investigated this angiogenic response using single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and micro-CT. After surgical ligation of the left pulmonary artery of rats, they were...

  • SELF ASSESSMENT ANSWERS: Cyanosis in late teens.  // Postgraduate Medical Journal;Jan2001, Vol. 77 Issue 903, p56 

    This article presents questions and answers on cyanosis in late teens. A form of congenital cyanotic heart disease with a right to left shunt is the most likely cause of cyanosis in this case. Pulmonary causes for the cyanosis are virtually eliminated by the normal chest x-ray and non-correction...

    Pulmonary arteriovenous malformations in patients with congenital heart disease have been associated with interruption of hepatic venous return to the lungs. We report a novel technique to improve systemic saturation using a modified covered stent in a patient with unilateral left pulmonary...

    The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of gravity and lung volume on regional pulmonary perfusion using technetium-99m macroaggregated albumin (99mTc MAA) single-photon emission tomography (SPET). Twenty-five subjects were classified into three groups according to their position...
