ABSTRACT Mycobacterium infection remains a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although rare, thoracic cardiovascular complications are associated with devastating consequences if not promptly diagnosed using computed tomography. Intrapulmonary complications include tuberculous aortitis, Rasmussen aneurysms, involvement of bronchial and nonbronchial systemic arteries, and thromboembolic events. Extrapulmonary complications include pericarditis, myocarditis, endocarditis, involvem...

Meandering pulmonary vein (MPV) is a rare entity that can be associated with an additional cardiac and pulmonary venous variations, including left-to-right shunts. Clinicians should consider further workup with dedicated cardiac imaging to evaluate for associated cardiovascular abnormalities after an abnormal pulmonary vein draining is initially identified on routine computed tomography or echocardiogram. Pulmonary venous variations in MPV represent a spectrum of disorders, and no consistent nom...

Abstract Left ventricular aneurysms may be repaired by the linear technique or endoventricular circular patch plasty technique. Choice of technique should be based on individual patient including cavity and aneurysm geometry. In this paper we describe the principles underlying decision-making with two illustrative cases.

In patients with alveolar-to-pleural air leak due to recent surgery or trauma, clinicians tend to manage chest tubes with suction therapy. Non-suction therapy is associated with shorter chest tube duration but also a higher risk of pneumothorax. We sought to develop an intrapleural electrical impedance sensor for continuous, real-time monitoring of pneumothorax development in a porcine model of air leak as a means of promoting non-suction therapy. Using thoracoscopy, two chest tubes and the pleu...

A pulmonary cyst usually refers to an air-filled space with a smooth, thin wall. Fluid-filled cystic lesions of the lungs include a range of etiologies such as true cysts, congenital malformations, infections, and benign and malignant neoplasms. With relatively little solid component, these lesions often have similar imaging appearances to one another. This article focuses on key imaging features and clinical characteristics that can be used to narrow the differential diagnosis.

Pheochromocytomas (PCCs) and paragangliomas (PGLs) are rare, heterogeneous neuroendocrine neoplasms of the autonomous nervous system of chromaffin cell origin that may arise within the adrenal medulla (PCCs) or the sympathetic and parasympathetic paraganglia (PGLs). Currently referred to by the umbrella term pheochromocytomas–paragangliomas (PPGLs), these distinct tumors are characterized by specific histopathology as well as biological and clinical profiles. PPGLs may occur as part of hereditar...

Abstract Background Infected coronary artery aneurysms (ICAA) represent a rare but potentially fatal complication of pre-existent atherosclerotic or non-atherosclerotic coronary artery disease, percutaneous coronary artery intervention, endocarditis or extracardiac infection. Methods A retrospective analysis of four cases in addition to 51 infected coronary artery aneurysms from the literature, for a total of 55 ICAA was performed. Clinical and morphological information including age, sex, clini...

Abstract Fibrosing mediastinitis is a rare disorder characterized by the invasive proliferation of fibrous tissue within the mediastinum. This fibrosis can result in compression of intrathoracic structures including the pulmonary vasculature leading to clinical symptoms and complications like pulmonary hypertension. Here, we present two cases of young patients with fibrosing mediastinitis complicated by pulmonary artery stenosis requiring medical and endovascular management with excellent result...
