Based on the above imaging tests and FOB findings, the diagnosis of scimitar syndrome with unilobar right lung was made.
Abnormal lobation including bronchial isomerism with hyparterial bronchus and unilobar lung may be present.
TEE revealed LA with dense SEC and thrombus 15 mm along (Figure 8) the posterior LA wall near interatrial septum (Figure 9), unilobar
LAA (Figure 10) with low ostial emptying velocities <20 cm/sec and thrombus 8 mm and few nonembolic thin thoracic aorta plaques.
In the past, the decision to resect CRLM was relatively straightforward; on the basis of studies that established certain adverse clinicopathological factors, liver resection was attempted only in patients who had one to three unilobar
metastases, preferably presenting at least 12 months after resection of the primary tumour, whose disease was resectable with at least a 1 cm margin of healthy liver tissue and who had no hilar lymphadenopathy or extra-hepatic disease.
Presumably the postoperative patients had unilobar
or segmental atelectasis e.
Also the unilobar
kidney of the rat resembles each lobe of multilobar kidney of human beings.
Two formats were used for this readings: I) conventional, in which the presence, localization and type of infiltrates were evaluated, discriminating between alveolar infiltrates (with or without air bronchogram), and interstitial infiltrates (of nodular, reticular or mixed types); unilobar
or multilobar infiltrates, and pleural effusion; and II) quantitative scale, which assigns a score according to the extension of the pulmonary injury, determined by the number of affected intercostal spaces.
The predominant radiologic pattern on chest radiograph was consolidation, with multilobar and unilobar
consolidation in 39 and 11 patients, respectively.
Radiologic information, available for all 10 patients, showed unilobar
infiltrates in 3 and multilobar infiltrates in 7.
Radiologic information on the initial evaluation was available for all patients; three had unilobar
infiltrates, and seven had multilobar infiltrates.
There was no survival advantage based on sex, age, colon versus rectal primary, nodal status at time of diagnosis, metachronous versus synchronous disease, bilobar versus unilobar
disease, pretreatment chemotherapy, or documented extrahepatic disease at the time of treatment," they said.
Chest x-rays were analyzed, and the results were classified as an alveolar, interstitial, or mixed pattern, and the distribution of radiographic infiltrates as unilobar
or multilobar, and unilateral or bilateral.
