Surgical Management of Renal Cell Carcinoma with Inferior Vena Cava Tumour Thrombus

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.025
Synopsis: 
Surgical techniques for the management of renal cell carcinoma have undertaken numerous modifications in order to minimize trauma, facilitate complete removal of tumours and promote long-term survival. Recently, minimally invasive approaches have been developed and successfully applied in the patients. As a result, patients’ survival has been considerably improved.

Left Ventricular Pseudoaneurysm

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.055
Pages: 
Synopsis: 
Left ventricular pseudoaneurysm is an uncommon condition, which is formed secondary to an incomplete rupture of the left ventricular wall that is contained by the pericardium or a new thrombus. The etiologies are complex, and most of them develop secondary to acute myocardial infarction and cardiac surgical procedures. Apart from the common features, some special aspects of left ventricular pseudoaneurysms have been described instantly. A better understanding of these clinical characteristics may be helpful for the proper management and improvement of the prognosis.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To comprehensively present the common features of left ventricular pseudoaneurysms (LVPAs).

Methods: The data source of this article based on a careful collection of the pertinent literature of LVPAs of recent decades.

Cardiac Involvements of Fabry Disease

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.574
Synopsis: 
Fabry disease is a rare inherited metabolic disorder caused by the deficient activity of α-galactosidase A. Cardiac involvements are frequent in Fabry disease. The patients may develop hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, arrhythmias, conduction abnormalities, valvular abnormalities and coronary heart disease. The diagnosis of Fabry disease is challenging due to the protean manifestations, which often lead to a delayed diagnosis. The management strategies, including enzyme replacement, anticoagulant treatment, pacemaker implantation and surgical interventions, warrant further elucidations.

Recent Advances of Diagnosis and Treatment of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.460
Synopsis: 
The mechanisms of pulmonary arterial hypertension remain uncertain, and the diagnosis of pulmonary arterial hypertension is challenging. The major advances of the diagnostic modalities and management strategies include new uses of routine biomarkers including antinuclear antibody, B-type natriuretic peptide, circulating endothelial cells and microRNA in diagnosis; and microRNA, mesenchymal stem cells and remote postconditioning for pulmonary protection in treatment. Understanding the progress in terms of the mechanisms and concepts of pulmonary hypertension implicates significant improvement of the management protocols of this disorder. In this article, the advances of the diagnostic modalities and management strategies of PAH are discussed.
