Tumor necrosis factor-[Alpha] regulates in vivo intrapulmonary
expression of ICAM-1.
Inhomogeneity of intrapulmonary
gas distribution is the main problem for ventilation treatment in ARDS patients.
In conclusion, the origin of the hypoxaemia in consolidative forms of bronchoalveolar carcinoma is possibly secondary to intrapulmonary
shunt through dilated vessels with massive plasma leakage.
growth of malignant mesothelioma presenting as recurrent hydropneumothorax.
The differential diagnosis of CCAM includes diaphragmatic hernia, cystic bronchiectasis, congenital lobar emphysema, intrapulmonary
bronchogenic cyst, prior infection with pneumatocoele formation and other foregut malformations.
The condition was first described by Altman and Robin in 1969 (1) and since then has been reported in patients with right-to-left intracardiac shunts, (2) intrapulmonary
shunts, (3) liver diseases, (4) and after pulmonary resection.

Patient enrollment in an international Phase 2-3 study was completed in December 2000 with LiquiVent(R), an intrapulmonary
"liquid ventilation" agent for treatment of acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome.
They had initially undergone catheter-based pulmonary embolectomy and intrapulmonary
thrombolysis, but there was incomplete resolution of the thrombus in all three patients 48 hours after the procedures.
It is an intrapulmonary
percussive treatment device that incorporates a nebulizer to deliver aerosolized medication.
Inhaled nitric oxide therapy has been shown to improve the oxygenation in acute hypoxaemic respiratory failure by increasing the blood flow to better aerated regions of the lungs, thereby reducing intrapulmonary
shunt and improving ventilation-perfusion matching.
