Título Bronchial wall thickness in toll collectors
Información bibliográfica May 2010, Vol.48, No.3, p.317-323. Illus. 22 réf.
Resumen There is an increasing concern about the possible adverse effects of diesel exhaust particulates on human health. In a diesel exposed occupational group composed of 120 toll collectors, a cross-sectional study was performed to evaluate the chest radiographs and 40 toll collectors were selected for computed tomography examination. The wall thicknesses and luminal diameters of trachea, main bronchi, and segmental bronchi of right apical and posterior basal segments were measured with manual tracing method. Findings are discussed. It is concluded that exposure to diesel fumes may have a role in increasing the thickness of large airway walls and in decreasing the diameter of large airways.
