Interstitial lung disease (ILD) is a group of diffuse lung diseases that mainly involve the interstitial and alveolar cavities and result in loss of alveolar-capillary functional units, leading to restrictive ventilatory dysfunction and diffusion impairment. There was an increased incidence of lung cancer on the basis of ILD, and perioperative risk of patients with lung cancer combined with ILD (LC-ILD) was significantly increased. The aim of this study is to summarize the safety and experience of surgical treatment of LC-ILD. A retrospective analysis was performed on 23 patients with LC-ILD who underwent pneumonectomy in Beijing Hospital from January 2012 to December 2019, and their clinical manifestations, image feature, pathology, surgical safety, perioperative complications and treatment experience were summarized. A total of 23 patients were included in this study, including 20 males (87.0%) with an average age of (69.1±7.8) years, and 19 cases (82.6%) were smokers. Of the ILD types, 14 cases (60.9%) were idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, 7 cases (30.4%) were idiopathic nonspecific interstitial pneumonia, and 2 (8.7%) were interstitial lung disease associated with connective tissue diseases. The pathology of lung cancer inclu...Continue Reading

Arrhythmias are abnormalities in heart rhythms, which can be either too fast or too slow. They can result from abnormalities of the initiation of an impulse or impulse conduction or a combination of both. Here is the latest research on arrhythmias.

Atrial Filbrillation

Atrial fibrillation refers to the abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria. Here is the latest research.

Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmia that is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality, particularly due to stroke and thromboembolism. Here is the latest research.
