  • [Title] Chest wall reconstruction with methacrylate prosthesis in Poland syndrome.
  • Poland syndrome is a rare congenital malformation.
  • This syndrome was described in 1841 by Alfred Poland at Guy's Hospital in London.
  • Corrective treatment of the chest and soft tissue abnormalities in Poland syndrome varies according to different authors.
  • We report the case of a 17-year-old adolescent who underwent chest wall reconstruction with a methyl methacrylate prosthesis.
  • This surgical procedure is recommended for large anterior chest wall defects, and it prevents paradoxical movement.
  • Moreover it provides for individual remodeling of the defect depending on the shape of the patient's chest.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Atypical chest pain: evidence of intercostobrachial nerve sensitization in Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.
  • BACKGROUND: Atypical chest pain is a common complaint among Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) patients with brachial plexus involvement.
  • Anatomically, the intercostobrachial nerve (ICBN) is connected to the brachial plexus and innervates the axilla, medial arm and anterior chest wall.
  • By connecting to the brachial plexus, the ICBN could become sensitized by CRPS spread and become a source of atypical chest pain.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the sensitivity of chest areas in CRPS patients and normal controls.
  • DESIGN: Prospective investigation of pressure algometry in chest areas to determine chest wall sensitivity.
  • Patients' report of chest pain history was collected from every participant.
  • Pressure algometry was used to measure pressure sensitivity in the axilla, anterior axillary line second intercostal space, mid-clavicular third rib, mid-clavicular tenth rib, and midsternal.
  • The ratios of chest wall sensitivities were compared between CRPS patients and normal controls.
  • RESULTS: A history of chest pain was reported by a majority (94%) of CRPS patients and a minority (19%) of normal controls.
  • CRPS patients reported lifting their arm as a major initiating factor for chest pain.
  • To pressure algometry, the ratios of CRPS patients were significantly greater than control subjects (p< 0.02 throughout), indicating increased chest wall sensitivity.
  • CONCLUSION: The results of this study support the idea that chest pain is greater in CRPS patients than normal controls.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Acute chest pain: Acute coronary syndrome versus lead perforation: A case report.
  • BACKGROUND: Diagnosing pacemaker lead perforation in the setting of chest pain and EKG changes is difficult and usually not considered unless we have awareness and high index of suspicion.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 77 year-old Caucasian female came to emergency room with left sided non-exertional chest pain radiating to her back for the past two days.
  • A week prior to this presentation, she had a stent supported angioplasty for in-stent re-stenosis and subsequently dual chamber pacemaker implantation for sick sinus syndrome.
  • Electrocardiogram revealed new T- wave inversions in inferior and anterior leads.
  • Initial chest X-ray, 2D-Echocardiogram and cardiac enzymes were normal.
  • Acute coronary syndrome was considered as an initial probable diagnosis.
  • Patient continued to have chest pain with negative cardiac biomarkers.
  • Because of persistent chest pain, shock with cold & clammy extremities and elevated central venous pressure cardiogenic shock was considered and a repeat 2D-echocardiogram was done on third day of hospitalization which revealed pericardial effusion.
  • Non-contrast CT-scan chest done to look for lead position confirmed that she had hemorrhagic pericardial effusion along with lead perforation.
  • Patient underwent pericardial window placement along with over-sewing of atrial wall to seal the leakage point.
  • CONCLUSION: Lead perforation presenting with chest pain and EKG changes is often not appreciated resulting in significant delay in diagnosis and inappropriate treatment.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • [Title] Wellen's syndrome: An ominous EKG pattern.
  • Wellen's syndrome is a characteristic T-wave on an electrocardiogram during a pain-free period in a patient with intermittent chest pain.
  • This finding suggests a high-degree stenosis of the proximal left anterior descending (LAD) coronary artery that will soon result in an acute anterior wall myocardial infarction (MI) if the patient is not urgently catheterized and the occlusion opened.
  • Through knowledge of Wellen's T-waves, more anterior wall MIs can be prevented.

  • Poland's syndrome represents a congenital unilateral deformity of the breast, chest wall, and upper limb with extremely variable manifestations.
  • In most cases, the problem is mainly cosmetic, and the reconstruction of the chest wall should use a method designed to be performed easily and to achieve minimal scarring and donor site morbidity.
  • We describe using a transverse musculocutaneous gracilis (TMG) flap for chest wall and anterior maxillary fold reconstruction in three male patients.
  • In all patients, a free TMG flap was performed to reconstruct the anterior axillary fold and the soft tissue defect.
  • There was no flap loss, and all three patients had a clearly improved appearance of the chest wall.
  • In this article, we demonstrate our experience with the use of a TMG flap for chest wall reconstruction in male patients with Poland's syndrome.

  • The aim of this study was to investigate the prognostic effect of coronary flow reserve (CFR) on left anterior descending artery (LAD) in women and men with chest pain of unknown origin and normal stress echocardiogram.
  • The study population consisted of 1,660 patients (906 women, 754 men) with chest pain syndrome, no wall motion abnormality on echocardiogram at rest, and dipyridamole (up to 0.84 mg/kg over 6 minutes) stress echocardiogram negative for wall motion criteria.
  • In conclusion, decreased CFR on LAD is associated with markedly increased risk in women and men with chest pain syndrome and a normal result of dipyridamole stress echocardiography.

  • [Title] Safety of ultrasound-guided small-bore chest tube insertion in patients on clopidogrel.
  • BACKGROUND: The safety of small-bore chest tubes insertion with ultrasound (US) guidance has been well demonstrated in patients not receiving antiplatelet therapy.
  • The purpose of this study is to report our experience on the safety of US-guided small-bore chest tube placement in patients receiving clopidogrel.
  • METHODS: This was a retrospective review of the charts of adult patients who underwent small-bore chest tube insertion by the pulmonary service while on clopidogrel.
  • Data collected included patient's and effusion characteristics, indication for clopidogrel and for the procedure, and any significant bleeding complication defined as hemothorax, chest wall hematoma, a reduction in hemoglobin of >2 g/dL, or any bleeding requiring blood transfusion, surgery, or chest tube insertion.
  • US of the chest was performed before insertion but did not include Doppler study of intercostal arteries.
  • Lateral insertion at or anterior to the posterior axillary line was the preferred choice when possible.
  • The indications for clopidogrel were coronary stents (50%), acute coronary syndrome (27%), prevention of graft occlusion after coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) (13%), femoral stent or endarterectomy (7%), and carotid endarterectomy (3%).
  • CONCLUSIONS: OH 44195: The insertion of small-bore chest tube in patients receiving clopidogrel can be safe if performed by experienced operators and by using US guidance along with lateral insertion site, which has the lowest risk of lacerating the intercostal arteries.

  • [Title] Additive prognostic value of coronary flow reserve in patients with chest pain syndrome and normal or near-normal coronary arteries.
  • In patients with angiographically normal coronary arteries and chest pain, pharmacologic stress echocardiography can identify a subgroup of patients with a less benign prognosis.
  • Coronary flow reserve (CFR) in the left anterior descending artery (LAD) can currently be combined with wall motion analysis during vasodilator stress echocardiography.
  • The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic value of CFR response in patients with normal coronary arteries and normal wall motion during stress.
  • All had angiographically nonsignificant (<50% quantitatively assessed) stenosis in any major vessel, normal left ventricular function (wall motion score index 1), and test negativity for conventional wall motion criteria.
  • Images were independently read by a core laboratory for wall motion and a core laboratory for CFR.

  • [Title] New insights into synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome.
  • In 1987, synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome was proposed as an umbrella term for a group of diseases with similar musculoskeletal manifestations, in particular hyperostosis of anterior chest wall, synovitis, and multifocal aseptic osteomyelitis, observed in association with dermatologic conditions such as palmoplantar pustulosis, severe acne, and hidradenitis suppurativa.
  • Despite recent advances in our understanding of the epidemiologic, pathophysiologic, and immunogenetic mechanisms involved in SAPHO syndrome, etiopathogenesis remains poorly understood.
  • The newly available whole-body MRI will assist early diagnosis by detecting multifocal osteitis lesions, some of them asymptomatic, in axial (anterior chest wall, spine, and jaws) and nonaxial sites.

  • [Title] Acute mitral regurgitation in suspected acute coronary syndrome: what is the cause?
  • Patients presenting with acute chest pain and suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS) who have nonobstructive coronary disease on angiography, but new regional wall motion abnormalities are often diagnosed with takotsubo cardiomyopathy (TTC).
  • The cause of TTC is often physical or emotional stress, and this clinical syndrome occurs more often in women than men.
  • When hemodynamically significant mitral regurgitation (MR) accompanies TTC, the mechanism must be carefully elucidated, as systolic anterior motion (SAM) of the mitral valve can cause significant MR and left ventricular outflow tract (LVOT) obstruction.
  • This case report describes 2 cases of TTC presenting with severe MR, who were initially thought to have ACS-associated MR caused by ischemia, but on further echocardiographic interrogation were found to have SAM-associated MR which resolved along with resolution of LV wall motion abnormalities on medical therapy by follow-up echocardiography.

  • [Title] Mucosal lesions may be a minor complication of SAPHO syndrome: a study of 11 Japanese patients with SAPHO syndrome.
  • Since the term synovitis-acne-pustulosis-hyperostosis-osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome was proposed by Chamot et al. (Rev Rhum Mal Osteoartic 54:187-196, 1987), clinical reviews concerning this syndrome have been mainly reported from Europe.
  • We carried out a retrospective analysis of 11 Japanese patients with SAPHO syndrome, and reviewed the clinical features of our series in comparison with those in a European large case study.
  • In this study the major features of SAPHO syndrome were chronic osteitis of the anterior chest wall and pustulotic arthro-ostitis with middle age onset, and mucosal lesions seemed to be a minor complication of SAPHO syndrome.
  • The non-erosive peripheral large joints arthritis and the particular HLA types (HLA-B51, B52, or A26), which had been reported to be increased in Behcet's disease, were frequently seen in SAPHO syndrome with mucosal lesions.
  • This study also suggests that SAPHO syndrome with mucosal lesions may be part of a broader disease spectrum including Behcet's disease.

  • [Title] Perioperative management of a neonate with Cantrell syndrome.
  • Cantrell syndrome is a congenital malformation with a pentalogy characterized by defects involving the abdominal wall, lower sternum, anterior diaphragm, and diaphragmatic pericardium, as well as congenital cardiac anomalies.
  • We recently managed anesthesia in a patient with this syndrome and herein report our experience.
  • The patient was a 14-day-old male neonate, who had been diagnosed with Cantrell syndrome, including ventricular septal defect, left ventricular diverticulum, abdominal wall defect, omphalocele, and sternal hypoplasia.
  • After cardiac surgery, the hernial contents were returned to their original compartment and, subsequently, an attempt was made to suture the abdominal wall.
  • The chest was left open postoperatively and the patient was transferred to the intensive care unit (ICU), during which time circulatory and respiratory management was very complex.
  • Issues requiring particular attention in the management of anesthesia for patients with this syndrome include complications of diverse cardiac malformations, pulmonary hypertension, pulmonary hypoplasia, and respiratory and circulatory failure associated with increased intraabdominal pressure due to primary closure of the omphalocele.

  • The main advantage of recognition and diagnosis of SAPHO syndrome is the avoidance of unnecessary prolonged antibiotic treatment and repeated invasive procedures.
  • The combination of synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis and aseptic osteitis is known as SAPHO syndrome.
  • The most common site of the disease is the upper anterior chest wall, characterized by predominantly osteosclerotic lesions, hyperostosis, and arthritis of the adjacent joints.
  • We present a case of SAPHO syndrome with C1-C2 spondylodiscitis.
  • Diagnosis of SAPHO syndrome was established using Khan et al. criteria (Schilling, SAPHO syndrome, Encyclopedie Orphanet, 2004).
  • Radiologists should be aware of this unusual syndrome to avoid misdiagnosis (tumour/infection), unnecessary surgery, and antibiotic therapy.

  • The authors describe a case of SAPHO syndrome with bacillus Calmette-Guérin (BCG) immunotherapy for bladder cancer.
  • Two years after treatment for bladder cancer, the patient had palmoplantar pustulosis, and in the past 1 month suffered from pain localised to the anterior chest wall.
  • The bone scintigraphy showed a strong focal enrichment in the right chest wall, suggesting spondyloarthropathy rather than malignant disease.
  • On the basis of clinical and scintigraphy findings, SAPHO syndrome was diagnosed.
  • The authors suggest that SAPHO syndrome might be caused by an association with BCG immunotherapy.

  • [Title] SAPHO syndrome with adrenal deficiency: a case report.
  • INTRODUCTION: The SAPHO syndrome (synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, osteomyelitis) is a rare painful disorder, usually with a good long-term prognosis.
  • CASE PRESENTATION: A 46-year-old Caucasian female was referred for anterior chest wall and back pain.
  • A brain MRI was requested secondary to the elevated prolactin level which was compatible with empty sella syndrome.
  • CONCLUSION: The case presented here has the unique feature of adrenal deficiency presenting alongside the SAPHO syndrome and is presented as the first case reported.
  • This syndrome could become complicated with different organ system involvement other than bone and skin.
  • There is a need further studies that will explore the weak relationship between SAPHO syndrome and adrenal deficiency.

  • [Title] Clinical and radiologic evolution of synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis syndrome: a single center study of a cohort of 71 subjects.
  • OBJECTIVE: To assess the basic features and outcomes of synovitis, acne, pustulosis, hyperostosis, and osteitis (SAPHO) syndrome.
  • METHODS: We identified all patients seen in our unit between 1990 and 2008 diagnosed according to the proposed inclusion criteria with SAPHO syndrome, who had a followup of at least 2 years.
  • RESULTS: Seventy-one patients (48 women, 23 men) with SAPHO syndrome were identified.
  • Female sex (odds ratio [OR] 7.2, 95% confidence interval [95% CI] 2.2-22.9) and the presence at onset of anterior chest wall (ACW) involvement (OR 5.7, 95% CI 1.8-18.1), peripheral synovitis (P = 0.0036), skin involvement (OR 10.3, 95% CI 3.4-31.1), and high values of acute-phase reactants (OR 7.7, 95% CI 2.7-22) were correlated with a chronic disease course and involvement of new osteoarticular sites.
  • CONCLUSION: A chronic course is the more common evolution of SAPHO syndrome.

  • A 41-year-old man sought evaluation at the emergency department for pain in the anterior chest that had been ongoing for approximately 35 hours.
  • He subsequently underwent coronary angioplasty and stenting of the left anterior descending artery using two sirolimus-eluting stents.
  • The following day, the patient complained of severe pain in his chest and shoulders.
  • Computed tomography (CT) of the chest showed small gas bubbles around the aortic wall and mild pericardial thickening with subtle air densities, suggesting acute mediastinitis.
  • With an impression of postcardiac injury syndrome and acute mediastinitis, he was treated with intravenous antibiotics and oral ibuprofen.

  • [Title] Sustained remission of SAPHO syndrome with pamidronate: a follow-up of fourteen cases and a review of the literature.
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the efficacy of intravenous (i.v.) pamidronate in patients with SAPHO syndrome refractory to first line treatments and to review the available literature on pamidronate for this indication.
  • METHODS: We report 14 cases of SAPHO syndrome refractory to non-steroideal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), glucocorticoids and disease modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) treated with i.v. pamidronate.
  • In all cases anterior chest wall involvement occurred early in the disease.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pamidronate appears to be an effective treatment in the osteo-articular manifestations of SAPHO syndrome.

  • [Title] Autogenous bone graft for expansion thoracoplasty in Adam Robert Wright syndrome: a case report and review.
  • We present a direct anterior sternal split expansion as a surgical option for a case of severe Thoracic Insufficiency Syndrome (TIS) in an arthrogryposis-like patient.
  • This patient's clinical features were published as a newly described syndrome: Adam Robert Wright Syndrome.
  • The patient born with this syndrome displays characteristic craniofacial abnormalities, severe thoracic insufficiency syndrome, cleft palate, limb contractures, arthrogryposis, pulmonary hypoplasia, cryptorchidism, ophthalmoplegia and retinopathy, with normal intelligence.
  • We demonstrate that direct anterior sternal split thoracoplasty with autogenous rib grafts is an effective technique for the acute management of thoracic insufficiency syndrome in this specific case.
  • To our knowledge, this is the only reported surgical management of thoracic insufficiency syndrome demonstrating a statistical improvement in chest wall compliance and tidal volume.
  • We show that direct anterior sternal split expansion is a surgical treatment option in some patients with thoracic insufficiency syndrome.
  • Our surgical strategy for the management of severe thoracic insufficiency syndrome in Adam Robert Wright Syndrome provided symptomatic relief and favourable long-term results.

  • [Title] Clinical characteristics and outcome of left ventricular ballooning syndrome in a European population.
  • We assessed the clinical characteristics and determinants of the prognosis of patients with left ventricular ballooning syndrome (LVBS) in an European population.
  • Anterior ST-segment elevation was documented in 38% and negative T waves in 41% of the patients.
  • The extent of wall motion abnormalities (odds ratio 4.16, p = 0.012), dyspnea at presentation (odds ratio 3.42, p = 0.01), and treatment with nitrates (odds ratio 0.30, p = 0.015) were significant univariate predictors of in-hospital events.
  • The recovery of regional wall motion abnormalities occurred within 1 month of the event in 73% of patients.
  • During follow-up, events occurred in 7 (6%) of 121 patients, including noncardiac death in 1 (0.8%), recurrent LVBS in 2 (1.6%), heart failure in 1 (0.8%), and recurrent chest pain in 3 (2.5%).
  • The extent of wall motion abnormalities was the best predictor of acute events.
