Large fragments of a transplanted lung from living lung recipients are rarely available. The case presented is that of a patient who underwent lingulectomy after a gunshot trauma. We describe the patchy panel of histological findings encountered in the resected specimen, ranging from normal lung to zones of acute and chronic rejection. Such contrasting findings have already been described, but should prompt us to exercise caution when interpreting histological results of routine transbronchial b...
HIV-positive adolescents face a number of challenges in dealing with their disease and its treatment. In this qualitative study, twenty-nine HIV-positive adolescents aged 13 to 20 years (22 girls), who live in Switzerland, were asked, in a semi-structured interview (duration of 40-110 minutes), to describe their perceptions and experiences with the disease itself and with therapeutic adherence. While younger adolescents most often thought of their disease as fate, older adolescents usually knew ...

Primary pulmonary hypertension and pulmonary hypertension associated with collagen vascular disease or HIV infection are rapidly progressive fatal diseases in spite of conventional medical therapy. Continuous intravenous infusion of prostacyclin has been shown to prolong life in severe primary pulmonary hypertension, and aerosolised prostacyclin has been used successfully on a shortterm basis in patients with pulmonary hypertension. We investigated the effects of acute administration of aerosoli...

: Type 2 diabetes mellitus is often associated with other risk factors for atherosclerotic disease, resulting in a marked increase in cardiovascular events and deaths. Combined treatment of hyperglycaemia, dyslipidaemia and hypertension significantly decreases the frequency and severity of diabetic microvascular and macrovascular complications. In a prospective cohort study including 356 type 2 diabetic patients (= 14% of all in-patients during a 6 months' period) the prevalence and treatment of...

: During pregnancy an increased incidence of maternal cardiac arrhythmias is observed. These include a wide spectrum, from clinically irrelevant isolated premature beats to debilitating supraventricular and ventricular tachycardias. In principle, management of arrhythmias during pregnancy is similar to that in non-pregnant patients. However, special consideration should be given to foetal age and potential teratogenic and haemodynamic adverse drug effects on the foetus. Therapeutic strategy shou...
