Risks of on-pump coronary artery bypass grafting surgery in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease due to sulfur mustard.

Postepy Dermatol Alergol 2017 Oct 31;34(5):429-432. Epub 2017 Oct 31.

Sulfur mustard (SM) is a toxic chemical agent that belongs to a class of vesicant compounds. In the 1980s it was used by the Iraqi army against Iranian forces. Sulfur mustard severely irritates the skin, eyes and lungs. The highest side effects seen in patients affected by this gas are pulmonary complications including different types of lung diseases such as bronchiolitis. It has also led to a certain type of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease called mustard lung. Similar extra-pulmonary, molecular and hormonal effects can be observed in these patients and patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Here cardiovascular complications may be one of the most dangerous visible effects. And atherosclerosis is probable following the direct effects or consequential long-term effects of SM. The development of atherosclerosis in these patients is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular and coronary artery disease. Coronary artery bypass grafting surgery is the treatment of coronary artery disease. Doing this surgery by bypass pump has its own morbidity and due to local and systemic inflammation changes in patients with SM pulmonary disorders it may have more side effects. Therefore, detailed knowledge of inflammatory diseases as well as the serum level or even the local lung fluid of the inflammatory factors in these patients before surgery are needed so that it would be possible to reduce the rate of morbidity and mortality by normalizing the inflammatory conditions of the patients before cardiac surgery.

Alternative Methods to Treat Nausea and Vomiting from Cancer Chemotherapy.

Chemother Res Pract 2015 8;2015:818759. Epub 2015 Nov 8.

Chemotherapy Induced Nausea and Vomiting (CINV) is among the most intensive side effects and critical concerns for patients with cancer. Most of these patients experience nausea and vomiting after chemotherapy. Sometimes, this is so annoying that it may prevent them from continuing the therapy. With the recent advances, a variety of therapeutic methods are innovated and applied to control CINV. Among them, the main methods include medicinal therapy, relaxation, and herbal therapy. Yet, using dexamethasone together with massage therapy and ginger is identified as the most effective method.

Cardiac Surgery Anesthesia And Systemic Inflammatory Response.

Int J Bioassays 2015 ;4(2):3648-3655

Toxicologist, Departments of Toxicology, Shahreza Branch, Islamic Azad University, Shahreza, Iran and Medical Research Center, Jundishapur Health Development Co, Tehran, Iran.

Cardiac surgery is associated with the development of a systemic inflammatory response. Inflammation represents the response of the body to tissue injury and in normal circumstances is a controlled humoral and cellular response that will lead to control of infection and wound healing. In some instances this response may become exaggerated, ultimately leading to additional tissue injury and the development of organ dysfunction. In this paper we discuss about relationships between cardiac surgery anesthesia and systemic inflammatory response.

Traumatic left anterior descending coronary artery-right ventricle fistula: a case report.

J Tehran Heart Cent 2011 31;6(2):92-4. Epub 2011 May 31.

Golestan Hospital, Jondishapour University of Medical Sciences, Ahvaz, Iran.

Traumatic coronary artery-cameral fistulas (TCAF) are rare and may present secondary to penetrating injuries (80%) or iatrogenic traumas. Early operative intervention remains the recommended treatment modality for accidental traumatic coronary artery fistulas. We report the case of a 17-year-old man who presented with left anterior descending coronary artery-right ventricle fistula following penetrating cardiac trauma, which was successfully repaired surgically.

Cystic hygroma: anesthetic considerations and review.

J Res Med Sci 2009 May;14(3):191-5

Department of Anesthesiology, Yazd University of Medical Science and Health Services, Yazd, Iran.

Cystic hygroma (CH) in the cervical region presents as a challenge to the anesthetist. The anaesthetic difficulties are usually associated with CH because of tumor extension into the mouth, airway management, thoracic extension, hemorrhage, involvement of pretracheal region, Post operative respiratory obstruction and coexisting anomalies (Down syndromes, Turner syndromes and congenital cardiac defects). Disorders of the CH relevant to anaesthesia and intensive care medicine are discussed in this review.
