Remodelling of oxygen-transporting tracheoles drives intestinal regeneration and tumorigenesis in Drosophila.

Nat Cell Biol 2021 May 10;23(5):497-510. Epub 2021 May 10.

Department of Biological Sciences, University of Cyprus, Aglantzia, Cyprus.

The Drosophila trachea, as the functional equivalent of mammalian blood vessels, senses hypoxia and oxygenates the body. Here, we show that the adult intestinal tracheae are dynamic and respond to enteric infection, oxidative agents and tumours with increased terminal branching. Increased tracheation is necessary for efficient damage-induced intestinal stem cell (ISC)-mediated regeneration and is sufficient to drive ISC proliferation in undamaged intestines. Read More

Aortogenic embolic stroke after sleeve pneumonectomy with median sternotomy for lung cancer: a case report.

J Med Case Rep 2021 Apr 28;15(1):205. Epub 2021 Apr 28.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Institute of Development, Aging and Cancer, Tohoku University, 4-1 Seiryo-machi, Aoba-ku, Sendai, Miyagi, 980-8575, Japan.

Background: The median sternotomy approach in sleeve pneumonectomy enables diseased lung ventilation in selected cases, which may reduce the difficulty in achieving anastomosis under intubation of the left main bronchus. However, with median sternotomy, the ascending aorta requires repeated mobilization to expose the operative field for anastomosis, which can cause an aortogenic embolic stroke.

Case Presentation: A 70-year-old Asian man presenting 6 months after developing hemoptysis was diagnosed with right upper lobe lung cancer (stage T4N0M0), invading the lower trachea and basal bronchus. Read More

Animals (Basel) 2021 Mar 18;11(3). Epub 2021 Mar 18.

Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, Florida Atlantic University, Fort Pierce, FL 34946, USA.

Chelonid alphaherpesviruses 5 and 6 (ChHV5 and ChHV6) are viruses that affect wild sea turtle populations. ChHV5 is associated with the neoplastic disease fibropapillomatosis (FP), which affects green turtles () in panzootic proportions.

Trans-cervical trans-tracheal resection of cervical esophageal smooth muscle tumor.

Ann Thorac Surg 2021 Mar 6. Epub 2021 Mar 6.

Division of Head and Neck Surgery, Department of Surgery, The University of Hong Kong, Queen Mary Hospital, Hong Kong.

Cervical esophageal smooth muscle tumours are traditionally resected via lateral trans-cervical +/- video-assisted thoracoscopic approaches. However exposure is frequently limited with risks of recurrent laryngeal nerve and posterior tracheal wall injury, and jeopardization of cervical tracheal and cervical esophageal blood supply. We herein describe an anterior trans-cervical trans-tracheal approach to counter some of the aforementioned problems and avoid morbidities associated with thoracoscopic surgery when resecting smooth muscle tumors arising from the cervical esophagus.

Servicio de radiodiagnóstico, Hospital Vall de Hebron, Barcelona, España.

Objective: To describe the radiologic findings of extrapulmonary air in the chest and to review atypical and unusual causes of extrapulmonary air, emphasizing the importance of the diagnosis in managing these patients.
