Broncholithiasis: rare but still present. (1/308)

Broncholithiasis is a rare but distinct and potentially dangerous pulmonary problem that still needs to be considered in the differential diagnosis of some patients with bronchial obstruction. Broncholiths originate from calcified material in peribronchial lymph nodes eroding into the tracheobronchial tree. The clinical and chest X-ray signs are usually non-specific, but the diagnosis can nowadays be made based on clinical suspicion, CT-scan and fibre-optic bronchoscopy findings, so that a malignant cause of airway obstruction can be ruled out. The removal of broncholiths during fibre-optic bronchoscopy is seldom possible and rather dangerous. They can be removed safely by rigid bronchoscopy with the aid of Nd-YAG laser photocoagulation. Thoracotomy is indicated in complicated cases with fistula formation or severe bleeding.  (+info)

A resuscitated case from asphyxia by large bronchial cast. (2/308)

A 62-year-old woman with bronchiectasis suffered from asphyxia due to a large bronchial cast that obstructed the bronchial tree. Immediate bronchoscopic suction of a bronchial cast of 17 cm in length through the intubated tube relieved the patients without any complications. Large bronchial casts appear to be rare in this century but it should be considered in patients with acute exacerbation of excessive sputa not only in patients with asthma or allergy but also in patients with respiratory tract infection.  (+info)

Tracheobronchial malacia and stenosis in children in intensive care: bronchograms help to predict oucome. (3/308)

BACKGROUND: Severe tracheobronchial malacia and stenosis are important causes of morbidity and mortality in children in intensive care, but little is known about how best to diagnose these conditions or determine their prognosis. METHODS: The records of all 62 children in whom one or both of these conditions had been diagnosed by contrast cinetracheobronchography in our intensive care unit in the period 1986-95 were studied. RESULTS: Seventy four per cent of the 62 children had congenital heart disease; none was a preterm baby with airways disease associated with prolonged ventilation. Fifteen of the children had airway stenosis without malacia; three died because of the stenosis and two died from other causes. Twenty eight of the 47 children with malacia died; only eight children survived without developmental or respiratory handicap. All children needing ventilation for malacia for longer than 14 consecutive days died if their bronchogram showed moderate or severe malacia of either main bronchus (15 cases), or malacia of any severity of both bronchi (three additional cases); all children needing ventilation for malacia for longer than 21 consecutive days died if their bronchogram showed malacia of any severity of the trachea or a main bronchus (three additional cases). These findings were strongly associated with a fatal outcome (p<0.00005); they were present in 21 children (all of whom died) and absent in 26 (of whom seven died, six from non-respiratory causes). They had a positive predictive value for death of 100%, but the lower limit of the 95% confidence interval was 83.9% so up to 16% of patients meeting the criteria might survive. CONCLUSION: In this series the findings on contrast cinetracheobronchography combined with the duration of ventilation provided a useful guide to the prognosis of children with tracheobronchomalacia. The information provided by bronchoscopy was less useful.  (+info)

Lung involvement in primary Sjogren's syndrome is mainly related to the small airway disease. (4/308)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate lung involvement in patients with primary Sjogren's syndrome. METHODS: Sixty one consecutive, non-smoking patients, 58 women and three men, were evaluated clinically, physiologically, and radiologically. A bronchial and/or transbronchial biopsy was performed on 13 of the patients. Physiological data were compared with that of a control group of 53 healthy non-smoking subjects matched for age and sex. RESULTS: In 41% of the patients the main symptom was dry cough. Physiological studies revealed that the patients presented significantly lower expiratory flow values (% pred) when compared with those of the control group: the forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) (mean (SD)) was 96% (16) v 111% (13) (p < 0.0001), the maximal expiratory flow at the 50% of the vital capacity (MEF50) was 72% (24) v 103% (17) (p < 0.0001), and the maximal expiratory flow at the 25% of the vital capacity (MEF25) was 49% (25) v 98% (20) (p < 0.0001). No significant difference was noted for the carbon monoxide diffusion value (% pred), between patients and controls. Blood gases were evaluated in 44 patients: mild hypoxemia was observed, and the alveolo-arterial oxygen difference (P(A-a)O2) correlated significantly with MEF50 (r = 0.35, p < 0.01) and MEF25 (r = 0.33, p < 0.01) values. Chest radiography showed mild, interstitial-like changes in 27 patients while slightly increased markings were present in 21. High resolution computed tomography of the lungs was performed in 32 patients (four with a normal chest radiograph, six with suspected interstitial pattern, 19 with apparent interstitial pattern, and three with hyperinflation) and revealed predominantly wall thickening at the segmental bronchi. All positive findings by computed tomography derived from the patients with abnormal chest radiographs. Transbronchial and/or endobronchial biopsy specimens in 10 of the 11 sufficient tissue samples revealed peribronchial and/or peribronchiolar mononuclear inflammation, while interstitial inflammation coexisted in two patients. CONCLUSION: The airway epithelia seem to be the main target of the inflammatory lesion of the lung in patients with primary Sjogren's syndrome. It seems to be common, subclinically leading to obstructive small airway physiological abnormalities.  (+info)

Overexpression of cyclins D1 and E is frequent in bronchial preneoplasia and precedes squamous cell carcinoma development. (5/308)

Increased protein expression of the G1 cyclins D1 and E is reported in invasive non-small cell lung carcinoma. However, during transformation of the bronchial epithelium, overexpression of these species occurs, and their relationship to aberrant expression of p53 and retinoblastoma (Rb) has not been described previously. To determine the expression of these cell cycle regulators during the development of invasive squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) of the lung, the immunohistochemical expression patterns in normal bronchial epithelium (n = 36), squamous metaplasia (SM; n = 28), and epithelial atypia (n = 34) were compared with that in low-grade dysplasia (LGD; n = 17), high-grade bronchial dysplasia (HGD; n = 30), and SCC (n = 36). Monoclonal anti-p53 Pab1801, polyclonal anti-cyclin D1 DCS6, monoclonal anti-cyclin E HE12, and monoclonal anti-Rb OP-66 antibodies were used. Cyclin D1 was not expressed in normal bronchial epithelium but was detected in 7% of SMs, 15% of atypias; 18% of LGDs, 47% of HGDs, and 42% of SCCs. Cyclin E was not detected in normal epithelium (n = 24), SM (n = 16), or LGD (n = 12), but it was found in 9% of atypias (2 of 22), 33% of HGDs (7 of 21), and 54% of SCCs (13 of 24). p53 was not expressed in normal epithelium, SM, and LGD, but it was overexpressed in 6% of atypias, 53% of HGDs, and 61% of SCCs. Abnormal Rb expression was found only in 2 of 36 cases of SCC. A total of 91% of HGDs and 92% of SCCs exhibited overexpression of at least one of the p53, cyclin D1, or cyclin E species. However, no link was observed between overexpression of p53 and the overexpressed G1 cyclins in preneoplastic lesions. Overexpression of cyclin D1, cyclin E, and p53 occurs frequently and independently in pulmonary SCC and is detected in lesions before the development of invasive carcinoma. In contrast, altered Rb expression is a late and infrequent event in squamous cell carcinogenesis.  (+info)

Intrabronchial Aspergillus nidulans infection in an immunocompetent man. (6/308)

We describe the first report of intrabronchial Aspergillus nidulans infection in an immunocompetent patient, which fit the description of bronchocentric granulomatosis. The patient had a history of accidental aspiration of light grade oil. Fiberoptic bronchoscopy revealed that the right B4aii alpha was obstructed. Endobronchial biopsy specimens contained fungal hyphae. The fungus was confirmed to be Aspergillus nidulans by culture. We suspected that aspiration of light grade oil had injured the bronchial mucosa, after which airborne Aspergillus nidulans had entered the lesion and multiplied. Intrabronchial fungal infection can occur in a healthy person without immunologic abnormalities, if a bronchial lesion provides an entry portal.  (+info)

Endobronchial actinomycosis simulating endobronchial tuberculosis: a case report. (7/308)

We report a case of a 70-year-old woman who presented with mild exertional dyspnea and cough. Fiberoptic bronchoscopic findings revealed an endobronchial polypoid lesion with stenotic bronchus. The lesion was very similar to endobronchial tuberculosis. Histologic examination of the biopsy specimen demonstrated Actinomyces infection. There was a clinical response to intravenous penicillin therapy. Primary endobronchial actinomycosis must be considered in the differential diagnosis of an endobronchial lesion, especially endobronchial tuberculosis in Korea.  (+info)

Airway coccidioidomycosis--report of cases and review. (8/308)

Infection due to Coccidioides immitis usually begins in the lungs. Despite the initial pulmonary portal of entry, endotracheal and endobronchial coccidioidomycosis has rarely been described. Since the introduction of fiberoptic bronchoscopy and the AIDS epidemic, more C. immitis lesions of the large airways have been noted. We present data on 38 cases of coccidioidomycosis of the airways, including 6 cases detailed from our own experience and 32 from the literature. Direct infection of the airways (28 cases) is a more common mechanism of airways disease than is erosion into the airways from a lymph node (5 cases). Bronchoscopic findings vary and may show mucosal involvement or intrinsic obstruction. Endotracheal and endobronchial disease is not a self-limited disease and requires antifungal therapy. Disseminated disease in these patients is common. Coccidioidomycosis must be considered in the differential diagnosis of airway pathology.  (+info)

We report a case of bronchial cast in a boy 1 year and 5 months old. Bronchial casts often obstruct the main bronchi, causing dyspnea and hypoxia. The bronchial cast was studied pathologically, with findings of eosinophilia and neutrophilic infiltration; the cast seemed to involve an allergic reaction. Such casts can be removed during bronchoscopy, but we used aspiration.
Tuberculous infection of the tracheobronchial tree confirmed by microbiological or histopathological evidence with or without parenchymal involvement is known as endobronchial tuberculosis. Chronic cough is the predominant symptom. Expectorated sputum examination for acid fast bacilli is often negative leading to delay in diagnosis. Therefore, bronchoscopy is crucial for early diagnosis and evaluation of the extent of disease. Bronchostenosis is a significant complication of endobronchial tuberculosis that may be present at the time of diagnosis or develops during the course of treatment. Previously, corticosteroids have been used along with antitubercular therapy to prevent or reduce the extent of bronchostenosis; however, their role is debatable as bronchostenosis often develops despite the use of corticosteroids. Furthermore, the duration of treatment varied from 6-9 months of daily therapy in previous series and little is known about efficacy of intermittent antituberculous therapy. Here we ...
Keutel syndrome is a rare, autosomal recessive disorder characterized by diffuse cartilage calcification, peripheral pulmonary artery stenosis, midface retrusion, and short distal phalanges. To date, 28 patients from 18 families have been reported, and five mutations in the matrix Gla protein gene (MGP) have been identified. The matrix Gla protein (MGP) is a vitamin K-dependent extracellular protein that functions as a calcification inhibitor through incompletely understood mechanisms. We present the clinical manifestations of three affected siblings from a consanguineous Turkish family, in whom we detected the sixth MGP mutation (c.79G>T, which predicts p.E27X) and a fourth unrelated patient in whom we detected the seventh MGP mutation, a partial deletion of exon 4. Both mutations predict complete loss of MGP function. One of the patients presented initially with a working diagnosis of relapsing polychondritis. Clinical features suggestive of Keutel syndrome were also observed in one additional ...

Arguably the simplest way to achieve one-lung ventilation is through deliberate bronchial intubation with a standard endotracheal tube. If this is used as a blind technique, the tube is most likely to go down the right main bronchus, as the course of the right main bronchus is more in line with the trachea than the course of the left, which comes off at the carina at a bigger angle.. [drawing]. This technique has several drawbacks: When a standard ETT is used to intubate the right main bronchus, the tube cuff is very likely to occlude the right upper lobe bronchus. So in addition to isolating the left lung this technique can inadvertently also isolate a significant part of the right lung. A second disadvantage is that left main bronchus intubation is not reliably achieved when this technique is used blindly. A fiberoptic scope is therefore frequently necessary to place a tube into the left main bronchus.. ...

Fibrinous casts are formed in the bronchial tubes under several conditions, such as the presence of diphtheria and pneumonia, and blood-casts may appear in connection with hemoptysis; but apart from these, there occurs an independent disorder, in which bronchial casts are expelled in paroxysms attended with dyspnea and cough. Of this last-named condition, the etiology and the pathology are obscure. The disorder is generally chronic and characterized by recurring paroxysms. Opinions differ as to the nature of the casts expelled, which are believed by some to be really fibrinous, and by others mucinous. It has also been suggested that the bronchial casts result from chylous exudation, but this view has not received acceptance. A case presenting several interesting features was demonstrated a short time ago by Strauss1 at a meeting of the Association of Charité Physicians at Berlin. The patient was a man, 58 years old, with a history
Airway remodelling is a critical feature of chronic bronchial diseases, characterised by aberrant repair of the epithelium and accumulation of fibroblasts, which contribute to extracellular matrix (ECM) deposition resulting in fixed bronchial obstruction. Recently, epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) has been identified as a new source of fibroblasts that could contribute to the remodelling of the airways. This phenomenon consists of the loss of the epithelial phenotype by bronchial epithelial cells and the acquisition of a mesenchymal phenotype. These cells are then able to migrate and secrete ECM molecules. Herein, we review the different types of EMT. We will then focus on the signalling pathways that are involved, such as transforming growth factor-b and Wnt, as well as the more recently described Sonic Hedgehog pathway. Finally, we will highlight the implication of EMT in airway remodelling in specific chronic bronchial pathologies, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and

Chronic bronchial disease constitutes a significant, yet underdiagnosed, cause of both chronic cough and episodic and acute-onset respiratory distress in mature dogs and cats. Untreated chronic bronchial disease is a debilitating, progressive respiratory syndrome that results in decreased exercise tolerance, inactivity, paroxysmal respiratory distress, airway collapse and even death. With proper medical treatment, however, the prognosis for the effective long term management of chronic bronchial disease, even in severe cases, can be good.. ...

Twenty years later, the womans health status is stable, she has no cough or excessive mucous production, but she does suffer from effort dyspnea. Difficulties may arise if there is need for intubation in patients with tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica because of the nodules protruding inward from the cartilage rings.. ...
Keutel syndrome (KS) is a rare autosomal recessive genetic disorder characterized by abnormal diffuse cartilage calcification, hypoplasia of the mid-face, peripheral pulmonary stenosis, hearing loss, short distal phalanges (tips) of the fingers and mild mental retardation. Individuals with KS often present with peripheral pulmonary stenosis, brachytelephalangism, sloping forehead, midface hypoplasia, and receding chin. It is associated with abnormalities in the gene coding for matrix gla protein (MGP). Being an autosomal recessive disorder, it may be inherited from two unaffected, abnormal MGP-carrying parents. Thus, people who inherit two affected MGP genes will likely inherit KS. It was first identified in 1972 as a novel rare genetic disorder sharing similar symptoms with chondrodysplasia punctata. Multiple forms of chondrodysplasia punctata share symptoms consistent with KS including abnormal cartilage calcification, forceful respiration, brachytelephalangism, hypotonia, psychomotor delay, ...
The histopathology of these lesions demonstrates calcium and phosphate deposits within small islands under the tracheal mucosa. More recently, factors such as bone morphogenetic protein 2 and transforming growth factor beta 1 have been implicated in potentially playing a role in formation of new bone and cartilage [5]. These calcium and bone deposits are in direct contact with the natural C-shaped anatomical structure of the tracheal rings - and therefore TBOC deposits are limited to the anterior and lateral walls of the trachea. The posterior wall of the trachea is membranous and is therefore spared [7]. This is an important trait in narrowing the differential diagnosis of tracheal lesions, and posterior wall involvement of the trachea increases suspicion for other disease pathologies including amyloidosis, sarcoidosis, polychondritis and malignancies such as lung cancer [7,8]. The role of biopsy is to confirm diagnosis and evaluate for associated conditions. Bronchoscopy is considered the gold ...

Background: Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica (TO) is a pulmonary orphan disease and consists at the presence of multiple osseous or cartilaginous nodules localised in the submucosa of the tracheobronchial wall. These nodules protrude into the lumen of the trachea and the large bronchi, leading to the airway obstruction.The disease does not involve other organs.. Method: We studied in retrospective all cases of TO diagnosed with fiberoptic bronchoscopy for the period 2001 - 2011. In our hospital we realise aproximately 1200 bronchocopies per year.. Results: We found 17 cases, 52 % were female and 48 % male. The average age was 40.6 years, 42 % were smokers (∼40 UPA) without family history for TO. The duration of symptoms till the diagnostic was 2.3 years. The most frequent symptoms were: cough 100 %, sputum 64 %, dyspnea 41 %, haemoptisis 5 %, and erythema nodosa 5 %. The laboratory findings demonstrate an increase of sediment in 58 % of cases, 11 % leucocytosis and all the others were ...
Although the sine qua non of atelectasis is the loss of volume of lung tissue, whether the entire lung, lobar, segmental or subsegmental, a myriad of pathologic factors may induce the same result.1 Resorptive atelectasis is due to endobronchial obstruction, intralumenally as by a tumor or mucus plug or by extrinsic bronchial compression, as in lymphadenopathy.2 Passive atelectasis is caused by parenchymal compression extrinsic to the lung tissue, such as a pleural effusion, pneumothorax, or hypovenilation, while an intraparenchymal mass may, itself, result in compressive atelectasis of an adjacent region of lung. Finally, interstitial fibrosis of any source leads to a loss of lung volume known as cicatrizing atelectasis 3 Acute, obstructive atelectasis often leads to sudden respiratory distress, but insidious pulmonary volume loss may be asymptomatic.1 Therefore, radiology plays a key role in detecting the presence, location and possible source of atelectasis. Plain film radiography provides a ...
Inflammation of the small airways contributes to the severity of the disease and affects the quality of life of patients with asthma. However, the exact role and relevance of small airways disease in asthma is still unclear. This is partly due to the difficulty of measuring small airways pathology with a sensitive and specific parameter. The most commonly used variable as an indicator of small airway obstruction is the FEF50%. Currently, it is not known which clinical symptoms are associated with small airways disease and how a patient will perceive small airway abnormalities. This knowledge is important to assess small airways disease in patients with asthma and adjust therapy to improve quality of life.The primary purpose of this study is to develop a questionnaire for patients with asthma with and without small airways disease for general and specialist practice ...
The aim: To determine the most informative immunological and molecular genetic factors which reflect the characteristics of the inflammatory process and make it possible to predict the development of bronchial obstruction during acute bronchitis in infants. Materials and methods: 120 children aged from 6 months to 3 years old with acute bronchitis were examined. We determined NF-κB expression level in peripheral blood lymphocytes by flow cytometry method, the serum concentrations of interferon-γ, interleukins 4, 12 and 13 by ELISA, total IgE serum level by ECLIA and calculated the relative risk (RR) for each of these parameters. Results: The risk of bronchial obstruction development was high when the relative number of lymphocytes expressing NF-κB was under 49.8% (RR=3.27, 95% CI=2.09-4.92). IL-12 serum concentration from 41.35 pg/ml to 173.06 pg/ml (RR=5.35, 95% CI=2.82-9.15) and IL-13 serum concentration from 4.06 pg/ml to 6.71 pg/ml (RR=4.0, 95% CI=2.39-6.41) were early predictors of the ...

Asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) were previously thought to be disorders affecting predominantly the central airways. It is now well known that small peripheral airways are also pathologically and clinically involved. Measurement techniques, such as spirometry, have mostly focused on larger airways but in recent times more sophisticated methods are being used to investigate the involvement of this distal zone. These tests are integral for measuring the effects of newer asthma treatments, which are composed of smaller particles that have the ability to reach these peripheral areas. The aim of this review is to look at the involvement of small airways disease in COPD and asthma, the tests that can measure dysfunction in these areas and the treatments that target peripheral airways.. ...
Many patients are interested in how to dilute Fluimucil solution for inhalation? To prepare a medical basis, it is necessary to open one ampoule with the drug and dilute its contents in saline or cooled boiled water in the same proportions, that is 1: 1. It is necessary to prepare the solution in glassware, because metal and rubber containers negatively affect the activity of the active substance.. The therapeutic mixture is not recommended to be placed in an ultrasonic nebulizer, because its use leads to the rapid destruction of the active substance Fluimucil. For inhalation, use a compressor device that provides the desired therapeutic effect.. Fluimucil against cough in the form of a solution for intratracheal treatment in order to cleanse the bronchi is used in case of prescribing therapeutic bronchoscopy. According to the instructions in this case shows from 1-2 or more vials per day, depending on the condition of the patient.. For topical use, Fluimucil is instilled into the nose in a dose ...
tracheal and bronchial stenosis, and the only chance she had was to do reconstructive surgery. The chances were not great that the surgery would work, but without it she was certain to die from the stenosis at some point fairly soon. They told us to pray and to just love her.

Airway complications following lung transplantation remain a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. The management of bronchial complications in Bronchus Intermedius (BI) is challenging due to the location of right upper bronchus. The aim of this study was to analyze the results of BI Montgomery T-tube stent in a consecutive patients with lung transplantations. Between January 2007 and December 2010, 132 lung transplantations were performed at Foch Hospital, Suresnes, France. All the patients who had BI Montgomery T-tube after lung transplantation were included in this retrospective study. The demographic and interventional data and also complications were recorded. Out of 132 lung transplant recipients, 12 patients (9 male and 3 female) were entered into this study. The indications for lung transplantation were: cystic fibrosis 8 (67%), emphysema 3 (25%), and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis 1 (8%). Most of the patients (83%) had bilateral lung transplantation.

[online]. 2012, vol.130, n.1, pp.61-64. ISSN 1516-3180. CONTEXT: Tracheobronchomalacia (TBM) results from structural and functional abnormalities of the respiratory system. It is characterized by excessive collapse: at least 50% of the cross-sectional area of the trachea and main bronchi. In this paper, we present a rare case of a patient with TBM who first presented with stridor and respiratory failure due to exacerbation of chronic bronchitis. CASE REPORT: An 81-year-old Caucasian man was admitted presenting coughing, purulent sputum, stridor and respiratory failure. He had a medical history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and silicosis and was a former smoker. Axial computed tomography on the chest revealed marked collapse of the ...
Noninvasive imaging of the airways has made remarkable progress in the past decade. The introduction of multirow detector CT scanners has made it possible to acquire high-resolution images of the upper, central, and segmental airways within a short acquisition time. The CT scan data can be reformatted into three-dimensional images to create virtual bronchoscopic renderings that closely resemble the images obtained from flexible broncho-scopy. in detail. Virtual bronchoscopy has been applied increasingly for the evaluation of the airways, especially to detect benign and malignant airway stenosis. Its potential for depicting tracheobronchial stenosis has been demonstrated with single-detector helical CT scanning, but the z-axis resolution has been limited by scan collimation if complete scan acquisition of the chest was to be achieved within a single breath-hold. A previous study demonstrated that virtual bronchoscopy with multirow detector CT scanning enables the reduction of scan collimation to ...

Anatomic optical coherence tomography (aOCT), a modification of conventional optical coherence tomography (OCT), is a novel light-based imaging tool with the capacity to measure the diameter and lumen area of the central airways accurately during bronchoscopy. This study describes the first clinical use of aOCT imaging in the lower airways in three individuals with common endobronchial pathologies. During bronchoscopy, a specialized fiberoptic probe was passed through the ...
The trachea (windpipe) divides into two main bronchi (also mainstem bronchi), the left and the right, at the level of the sternal angle. The right main bronchus is wider, shorter, and more vertical than the left main bronchus. The right main bronchus subdivides into three segmental bronchi while the left main bronchus divides into two. The lobar bronchi divide into tertiary bronchi. Each of the segmental bronchi supplies a bronchopulmonary segment. A bronchopulmonary segment is a division of a lung that is separated from the rest of the lung by a connective tissue septum. This property allows a bronchopulmonary segment to be surgically removed without affecting other segments. There are ten segments per lung, but due to anatomic development, several segmental bronchi in the left lung fuse, giving rise to eight. The segmental bronchi divide into many primary bronchioles which divide into terminal bronchioles, each of which then gives rise to several respiratory bronchioles, which go on to divide ...
Tracheobronchomalacia (TBM) is the most common congenital central airway anomaly, but it frequently goes unrecognized or is misdiagnosed as other respiratory conditions such as asthma. Recent advances in multidetector computed tomography (CT) have enhanced the ability to noninvasively diagnose TBM with the potential to reduce the morbidity and mortality associated with this condition. Precise indications are evolving but may include symptomatic pediatric patients with known risk factors for TBM and patients with otherwise unexplained impaired exercise tolerance; recurrent lower airways infection; and therapy-resistant, irreversible, and/or atypical asthma. With multidetector CT, radiologists can now perform objective and quantitative assessment of TBM with accuracy similar to that of bronchoscopy, the reference standard for diagnosing this condition. Multidetector CT enables a comprehensive evaluation of pediatric patients suspected of having TBM by facilitating accurate diagnosis, determining the
The cause of tracheobronchomalacia (TBM) depends on whether it is primary or acquired. Primary TBM is associated with prematurity or certain genetic conditions. Learn more.

Broncholithiasis is defined as calcified or ossified material in the bronchial lumen. The most frequently seen symptoms are a non-productive cough and hemoptysis. Occasionally, broncholytic expectoration can be seen, which is known as lithoptysis. As this is not a common finding, a case diagnosed with lithoptysis is presented here ...
Central airway obstruction (CAO) may present in a wide variety of ways, and patients are frequently misdiagnosed with asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. A high degree of suspicion is necessary to ascertain the diagnosis. The approach to the patient should be expeditious but with par...
In recent years, high flow nasal cannula is being increasingly used. Most studies showed positive results when used in hypoxaemic respiratory failure. Its use in a patient with a large endobronchial mass has not yet being described. We report a patient who presented with hemoptysis and hypoxaemic respiratory failure second to a large mass obstructing the right main bronchus. High flow oxygen via nasal cannula was initiated with a quick improvement of the hemoptysis and the oxygen saturation. Thus, allowing the patient to be rapidly stabilized.. ...
The CT demonstrated reversal of the right-sided oblique fissure and an abnormal anterior course of the bronchus intermedius, with rotation of the pulmonary vessels. The right lower lobe pulmonary artery was pulled in an anterior course alongside the bronchus intermedius. There was extensive right-sided consolidation with an associated pleural effusion. Appearances indicated 180-degree torsion of the right lung (figure 2). The patient was urgently referred to the regional cardiothoracic centre and underwent right upper and lower lobectomies. He was discharged home.. Pulmonary torsion is a rare but life-threatening event,1 defined as parenchymal rotation on the bronchovascular pedicle.2 This can affect a single lobe or, less frequently, an entire lung.2 Torsion most commonly affects the right middle lobe after right upper lobectomy1 but can follow other thoracic surgical procedures1 ,3 or chest trauma.3 ,4 It very rarely occurs spontaneously.2 ,4. Pulmonary torsion may compromise airways, arterial ...
TY - GEN. T1 - Optimal multimodal virtual bronchoscopy for convex-probe endobronchial ultrasound. AU - Higgins, William Evan. AU - Zang, Xiaonan. AU - Cheirsilp, Ronnarit. AU - Byrnes, Patrick D.. AU - Kuhlengel, Trevor K.. AU - Toth, Jennifer. AU - Bascom, Rebecca. PY - 2018/1/1. Y1 - 2018/1/1. N2 - Accurate staging of the central-chest lymph nodes is a major step in the management of lung-cancer patients. For this purpose, the physician uses videobronchoscopy to navigate through the airways and convex-probe endobronchial ultrasound (CP-EBUS) to localize extraluminal lymph nodes. Unfortunately, CP-EBUS proves to be difficult for many physicians. In this paper, we present a complete optimal multimodal planning and guidance system for image-guided CP-EBUS bronchoscopy. The system accepts a patients 3D chest CT scan and an optional whole-body PET/CT study as inputs. System work flow proceeds in two stages: 1) optimal procedure planning and 2) multimodal image-guided bronchoscopy. Optimal ...

The trachea (windpipe) divides at the carina into two main or primary bronchi, the left bronchus and the right bronchus. The carina of the trachea is located at the level of the sternal angle and the fifth thoracic vertebra (at rest). The right main bronchus is wider, shorter, and more vertical than the left main bronchus,[3] its mean length is 1.09 cm.[4] It enters the root of the right lung at approximately the fifth thoracic vertebra. The right main bronchus subdivides into three secondary bronchi (also known as lobar bronchi), which deliver oxygen to the three lobes of the right lung-the superior, middle and inferior lobe. The azygos vein arches over it from behind; and the right pulmonary artery lies at first below and then in front of it. About 2 cm from its commencement it gives off a branch to the superior lobe of the right lung, which is also called the eparterial bronchus. Eparterial refers to its position above the right pulmonary artery. The right bronchus now passes below the ...

A prospective controlled randomized trial was performed in order to assess the effectiveness and safety of photodynamic therapy versus laser resection in 31 patients with partial or complete tracheobronchial obstruction due to inoperable non-small cell lung cancer. Fourteen patients received dihaematoporphyrin ether and argon dye laser photoradiation, and 17 patients received Nd-YAG laser resection. Endoluminal obstruction of ,75% was found in 77.4% of the patients. Among the symptoms, cough was more severe in the Nd-YAG group (p=0.02). Patients in both groups experienced symptomatic relief after treatment (p=0.003). Patients in the photodynamic therapy (PDT) group showed a significantly longer time until treatment failure (p=0.03) and longer median survival (p=0.007). Bronchitis and photosensitization (both in the PDT group) were the most common adverse effects. There was one death, probably related to treatment, in the PDT group. Photodynamic therapy and neodymium-yttrium aluminium garnet ...
Among 2600 FB procedures, 434 (17%) were performed with the indication of recurrent or persistent pneumonia. There were 237 (54%) boys. Median age at presentation was 84 months, and median duration of symptoms was 9 months. FB led to specific diagnosis in 33% of the cases. The most common diseases diagnosed by FB were malacia disorders (n: 32, 7%), aspirated foreign body (n: 30, 7%), endobronchial tuberculosis (n: 20, 5%), congenital airway anomalies (n: 14, 3%), mucus plugs (n: 14, 3%), pulmonary haemosiderosis (n: 12, 3%) and middle lobe syndrome (n: 11, 3%). During FB, only 6% of the patients had minor complications such as transient hypoxia, stridor and tachycardia. ...
The subdivision of the lung is characterised by the branching of the bronchi: the bronchial tree. The main bronchi form the stem of the bronchial tree, which splits within the lung dichotomously. The right main bronchus is called bronchus principalis dexter, the left bronchus is called bronchus principalis sinister. The main bronchi are divided into lobar bronchi - right in three lobar bronchi: bronchi lobares superior, medius and inferior and left into the bronchi lobares superior and inferior. Thereafter, there follows further division into segmental bronchi - right 10, left 9 segmental bronchi. This is followed by subsegmental bronchi, the bronchioles and finally the bronchioli terminales. The conductive, air-transporting phase of the bronchial tree ends here. Thereafter follows the sectional formation, which serves for gas exchange and as the lung parenchyma in the narrow sense. These include the bronchioli respiratorii, the ductus alveolaris and sacculi alveolares. The respiratory ...

This gene encodes a member of the osteocalcin/matrix Gla family of proteins. The encoded vitamin K-dependent protein is secreted by chondrocytes and vascular smooth muscle cells, and functions as a physiological inhibitor of ectopic tissue calcification. Carboxylation status of the encoded protein is associated with calcification of the vasculature in human patients with cardiovascular disease and calcification of the synovial membranes in osteoarthritis patients. Mutations in this gene cause Keutel syndrome in human patients, which is characterized by abnormal cartilage calcification, peripheral pulmonary stenosis and facial hypoplasia.

Retract the arch of the aorta [forceps] and pulmonary trunk to the left. Remove any remaining portions of the pericardium to better expose the trachea. In the area of the bifurcation of the trachea, identify the tracheobronchial lymph nodes. Observe that the trachea contains U-shaped cartilages that support its anterior and lateral walls. The posterior wall of the trachea consists of a flexible fibromuscular membrane. Identify the right main (primary) bronchus and left main (primary) bronchus. Make a longitudinal incision in the anterior walls of the right main bronchus and the left main bronchus , and extend the incision to the region of the tracheal bifurcation. Identify the carina, the cartilaginous ridge on the internal surface of the tracheal bifurcation [cross-section]. Links and References: ...
Ten patients (44-75 years of age) were enrolled. The clinical purposes of bronchoscopy were for diagnosis in seven patients and for intervention in three patients. For the diagnoses, we performed bronchoalveolar lavage in six patients. One patient underwent endobronchial ultrasonography with transbronchial needle aspiration of a lymph node to investigate tumour involvement. Patients who underwent bronchoscopy for therapeutic interventions had endobronchial mass or blood clot removal with cryotherapy for bleeding control. The mean saturation (SpO2) of pre-bronchoscopy in room air was 84.1%. The lowest and highest mean saturation with HFNC during the procedure was 95% and 99.4, respectively. The mean saturation in room air post-bronchoscopy was 87.4%, which was 3.3% higher than the mean room air SpO2 pre-bronchoscopy. Seven patients with diagnostic bronchoscopy had no hypoxic event. Three patients with interventional bronchoscopy showed improvement in saturation after the procedure. Bronchoscopy ...
Background. This study sets out to estimate the prevalence and the degree of severity of bronchial obstruction in an adult population with three different diagnostic criteria: the European Respiratory Society (ERS), the American Thoracic Society (ATS), and the World Health Organization (WHO) defined as Global Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD). Methods. 1514 subjects underwent complete medical evaluation and spirometry. Results. The prevalence of bronchial obstruction was respectively 27.5% (ERS), 33% (GOLD), and 47.3% (ATS). The prevalence of bronchial obstruction in the smoker group was 33.4% (ERS), 38.1% (GOLD), and 52.3% (ATS). The prevalence of obstruction in the ex-smoker group was 33% (ERS), 41.4% (GOLD), and 57.1% (ATS). The prevalence of obstruction in the non-smoker group was 21.1% (ERS), 24.9% (GOLD), and 38.6% (ATS). Conclusions. The results show that the prevalence of airway obstruction increases proportionally with age; the cigarette smoking represents an important conditioning ...
Case: A 19 year-old female, G1P0, BMI 29.3, with a history of surgically corrected situs solitus, d-ventricular loop dextro-Transposition of Great Arteries (d-TGA) presented for anesthetic management for vaginal delivery. The patient underwent an arterial switch, repair of ASD and VSD at age 2 months. At presentation she was WHO Class III maternal cardiovascular risk and had NYHA Class II symptoms. History was also significant for persistent left SVC, asthma, left bronchial compression by the pulmonary artery and repaired thoracolumbar scoliosis with Harrington rods. Pre-labor transthoracic echocardiogram(TTE) showed preserved LVEF (>60%), 3+ AR, 3+ TR and mild PAH. Initially, large bore IV access was obtained, and an arterial line was placed. Ultrasound of her thoracic and lumbar spine was performed to assess her hardware, and confirm normal anatomy at the planned level of epidural(Fig 1-1). An epidural was placed at L3/4 early in her labor to provide time for slow up-titration of analgesia and ...

Michael Klaper (Recorded April 2016, 35-minutes) Causes: Bronchial diseases are typically caused by viruses or by the normal bacteria in your nose and throat taking advantage of any occasion when your bodys resistance may be lowered. Antibiotics should be allowed for those times when youre really sick high fever, shaking chills, endless coughing, etc. since most cases of bronchitis are brought on by viruses that are not susceptible to antibiotics and because most bronchial diseases generally clear with time Some of the most self defeating things a person with a lung infection can do is always to sit quietly all day in a seat (in front of a computer or TV) breathing shallowly, and permitting the contaminated secretions to thicken and pool in the bronchial tubes and lower parts of the lung. d) Even better, if you feel up to it, any action that creates sustained deep breathing can not only increase mucus secretion removal, but the increased blood flow will draw immune cells, antibodies and any ...

A flexible bronchoscopy showed a polypoid mass in the carina with extension to the right proximal bronchus. The bronchial washings study for fungus, acid- fast bacilli and polymerase chain reaction for mycobacterium were negative. A reported bronchoscopic examination 8 months later revealed no tracheal mass or subsequent stenosis. A tracheal mass in an asymptomatic and non- progressive child may be managed alternatively by repeated bronchoscopic examinations at intervals instead of immediate bronchoscopic excision or thoracotomy..

Method. Patients must undergo proper evaluation of resectability and operability according to international guidelines. The authors routinely perform a radical lymphadenectomy.. Right Pneumonectomy. Surgery was performed through a single 4.0 cm incision in the fifth intercostal space. Once resectability was confirmed, the authors dissected the pulmonary hilum. The anterior trunk of the MPA was freed and divided using a vascular load. This allowed for safe dissection of the right upper lobe vein. Once this vein was transected, the MPA was exposed, allowing a secure dissection. The only structure behind the artery was the airway, so it was safe to encircle and staple it. Following this, the middle vein and the inferior vein are divided. The right main bronchus was the last structure to be transected using a bronchial load, with care taken to avoid leaving a long bronchial stump.. Left Pneumonectomy. The incision and initial evaluation were performed as described for a right pneumonectomy. The ...
Finally, my latest Mystery has been solved! You may recall that the latest in a series of Mystery problems (all deserving of capital Ms) has been a chronic cough along with shortness of breath. My inability to talk very long without lapsing into a coughing fit began before Christmas. Scans, tests, medications and inhalers didnt help, and this current episode of my version of House was finally solved this week. It turns out that I have an endobronchial lesion in one of the main airways in my right lung. I learned that this is a rare condition (no surprise there). This was found when I had a bronchoscopy as a last resort. Upon waking up from this incredibly uncomfortable test, my doctor told me the lesion has to come out and pointed me to an interventional pulmonologist who can remove the lesion with a laser during another bronchoscopy ...

Determination of the different types of bronchial obstruction gives the possibility to carry out more precise treatment changing in case of necessity steroid therapy. And the main criteria of management efficacy are the following: an increase of the PF indices up to the maximal normal values, a decrease of the severity of bronchospasm (as judged by response to fenoterol) accompanied with an increase of the bronchial obstruction reversibility, as well as disappearance of alpha-induced bronchoconstriction (as judged by response to epinephrine or selective alpha-stimulators).. CONCLUSION. Summarizing the above discussion of the investigation we may rightfully state that the evolution of airflow obstruction in asthmatics characterized not only by quantitative (a decrease of the PF indices), but also qualitative (a different response to epinephrine) changes in the respiratory tract. The evolution in asthma proves to be a naturally determined process despite the fact that an objective situation not ...

AU - Hughes, Rollin W.. PY - 1994. Y1 - 1994. N2 - The concept of using a stent to maintain patency of a lumen is not new. As early as 1969, stents were being investigated in the peripheral arterial system as a means of preventing restenosis after dilatation by balloon angioplasty (Dotter, 1969). Since then, numerous reports have demonstrated the use of stents in both the peripheral and coronary artery systems (Maass et al., 1982; Dotter et ai., 1983; Wright et al., 1985; Palmaz et al., 1987). Concomitant with the investigation of expandable endovascular metal prosthesis has been the development of prosthetic devices for management of tracheobronchial, gastrointestinal, and genitourinary diseases. We will review the use of endoscopically placed prosthetic devices in the management of diseases affecting these ...
