Anomalous origin of the left coronary artery from the pulmonary artery
: case report and review of literature concerning teenagers and adults.
[beta]-hydroxyproline concentration followed a similar pattern as pulmonary artery
A small postmortem study showed that 61% of patients with these catheters had mural thrombus in the superior vena cava, right atrium or the pulmonary artery
and 11% had evidence of pulmonary infarction (75).
Hydatid cyst of the pulmonary artery
secondary to hepatic hydatid cyst embolism.
involvement and associated lung disease in Behcet disease: a series of 47 patients.
Branch pulmonary artery
stenosis can be evaluated with CE angiogram and peak velocity calculated with VEPC imaging.
Chest CT showed expansive growth of the pulmonary artery
tumor at 4, 8, and 9 months from the first visit to occupy the entire lumen, while the pulmonary trunk and left pulmonary artery
were not involved (Figures 2(a), 2(c), and 2(e)).
The high pulmonary vascular resistance in neonates allows forward perfusion of the anomalous RCA from the pulmonary artery
. Eventually, as the pulmonary vascular resistance starts to fall, the well-oxygenated blood coming into the anomalous coronary (through the collateral vessels from the left coronary) is forwarded to the pulmonary trunk.
The CT showed multiple intraluminal cystic filling defects in the right main pulmonary artery
and right lobar branches, mostly pulmonary artery
hydatid cysts (see Figures 1 and 2).
However, pulmonary artery
embolism due to hydatid cyst is an extremely rare entity that can be seen secondary to cardiovascular system invasion.
While various strategies have been employed to reduce readmissions, such as remote monitoring of patient weights, early cardiology consultations in the emergency room, and prompt outpatient follow-up after discharge, one valuable tool that remains greatly underutilized is the CardioMEMS (Abbott), a remote pulmonary artery
Non-contrast-enhanced multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) of the chest showed a well-delineated, nodular, hypodense mass with fluid attenuation in the right pulmonary artery
(Figure 1) and multiple millimetric, hypodense lesions filling the upper lobe branches and surrounding the parenchyma (Figure 2, 3).
