versus bilobar biliary drainage: Effect on quality of life and bilirubin level reduction.
42% for bilobar and unilobar
tumor, respectively; p=0.043) and multifocal tumor (89% vs.
Patients fit for surgery, primary tumor not located in the rectum and superficial and unilobar
metastases are the best conditions in which to perform a combined surgery without increase in morbidity and mortality rates [16, 17].
lesion on MRI and congruency with EEG appear to correlate with a better outcome based on case reports and larger series, and patients with an inflammatory etiology do not do as well with acute status surgery which highlights the importance of a preoperative workup before the decision to consider a palliative surgical option .
Figure 3: OR=1.29; 95% CI, 0.28, 6.02;p=0.75) while the liver resection group have more unilobar
hepatic metastases (Figure 4: OR=5.61; 95% CI, 2.87,10.97;p<0.001).
We present a case of scimitar syndrome with unilobar
right lung, who presented at OPD with respiratory tract symptoms and pulmonary arterial hypertension.
While one prior study failed to demonstrate an association between jet direction and pulmonary vein patterns , it is conceivable that an unrecognized, severe eccentric jet could flood one or more pulmonary veins even transiently, resulting in unilateral or unilobar
pulmonary hypertension, edema, and hemorrhage.
Among these patients, surgical treatment was performed in one in whom unilobar
tumor was found, hepatic artery embolization and/or medical treatment was performed in three patients in whom the tumor showed a diffuse involvement and exitus was reported only in one patient.
a) The meibomian gland, the Gland of Zeis and Gland of Moll are unilobar
TEE revealed LA with light spontaneous echocardiographic contrast (SEC), low ostial emptying velocities <40cm/sec (Figure 1) and unilobar
LAA with thrombus (2cm/1.5cm) (Figure 2) with echolucent center ("beard-beak sign of recent and growing thrombus") , protruding to LA during systole (Figure 3), few thin thoracic aorta plaques.
Nine patients (53%) had unilobar
disease among which one patient had isolated left lobe disease.
The reference category is patients without involvement of that specific lobe (either unilobar
or multilobar) when calculating the OR value for specific lobe.
