    Imaging findings were reported in an unusual case of endobronchial lipomatous hamartoma obstructing the left mainstem bronchus. Computed tomography readily demonstrated the presence of fat density within the lesion narrowing the differential diagnosis to endobronchial lipoma or lipomatous hamartoma.

    Congenital pulmonary valve stenosis has been associated with the development of massive pulmonary arterial (PA) dilatation. Over time, this dilatation may distort surrounding structures and lead to compression of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) or the left mainstem bronchus. In this report,...

    Background: Double-lumen endobronchial tubes (DLTs) are commonly advanced into the mainstem bronchus either blindly or by fiberoptic bronchoscopic guidance. However, blind advancement may result in misplacement of left-sided DLTs into the right bronchus. Therefore, incidence, risk factors, and...

    Congenital abnormalities of the large airways are uncommon, but may occasionally pose significant difficulties for anesthesiologists. The tracheal bronchus is an anatomical variant in which an accessory bronchus originates directly from the trachea rather than distal to the carina, as a takeoff...

    Abstract: An 18-year-old male patient was referred with an atypical form of vascular ring consisting of a right aortic arch, a right descending aorta, a persistent right ligamentum arteriosum, and a dilated right pulmonary artery in the setting of discontinuous pulmonary arteries with a single...
