Extensive cross-contamination of specimens with Mycobacterium tuberculosis in a reference laboratory. (1/100)

A striking increase in the numbers of cultures positive for Mycobacterium tuberculosis was noticed in a mycobacterial reference laboratory in Campinas, Sao Paulo State, Brazil, in May 1995. A contaminated bronchoscope was the suspected cause of the increase. All 91 M. tuberculosis isolates grown from samples from patients between 8 May and 18 July 1995 were characterized by spoligotyping and IS6110 fingerprinting. Sixty-one of the 91 isolates had identical spoligotype patterns, and the pattern was arbitrarily designated S36. The 61 specimens containing these isolates had been processed and cultured in a 21-day period ending on 1 June 1995, but only 1 sample was smear positive for acid-fast bacilli. The patient from whom this sample was obtained was considered to be the index case patient and had a 4+ smear-positive lymph node aspirate that had been sent to the laboratory on 10 May. Virtually all organisms with spoligotype S36 had the same IS6110 fingerprint pattern. Extensive review of the patients' charts and investigation of laboratory procedures revealed that cross-contamination of specimens had occurred. Because the same strain was grown from all types of specimens, the bronchoscope was ruled out as the outbreak source. The most likely source of contamination was a multiple-use reagent used for specimen processing. The organism was cultured from two of the solutions 3 weeks after mock contamination. This investigation strongly supports the idea that M. tuberculosis grown from smear-negative specimens should be analyzed by rapid and reliable strain differentiation techniques, such as spoligotyping, to help rule out laboratory contamination.  (+info)

Placement of left-sided double-lumen endobronchial tubes: comparison of clinical and fibreoptic-guided placement. (2/100)

We have compared a new intubation manoeuvre using a fibreoptic bronchoscope with conventional blind placement of a double-lumen tube. Thirty adult patients who presented for thoracoscopy requiring one-lung ventilation underwent endobronchial intubation with a double-lumen tube inserted either in the conventional blind way or using a fibreoptic bronchoscope. There were four misplacements of the double-lumen tube using the conventional method but none using the bronchoscope. In addition, the bronchoscope allowed more rapid intubation (mean 106 vs 347 s). The results suggest that the fibreoptic-guided method of inserting the double-lumen tube was a satisfactory alternative to the conventional one.  (+info)

Peripheral airway findings in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease using an ultrathin bronchoscope. (3/100)

The authors performed bronchoscopic examination using an ultrathin bronchoscope to determine the characteristics of the peripheral airways in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The study population comprised 13 healthy control subjects, 10 patients with chronic bronchitis without airflow limitation, and 20 patients with COPD. The COPD patients were divided clinically into 10 with chronic bronchitis and 10 with pulmonary emphysema. The peripheral airways were examined using an ultrathin bronchoscope. In chronic bronchitis, peripheral airways of the 11th or 12th generation showed a high frequency of obstruction and mucosal changes such as granulation. In pulmonary emphysema, the peripheral airways frequently showed a net-like appearance of the bronchial epithelium and obstruction at the 11th or 12th generation. Morphological changes of the small airways in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease can be detected by an ultrathin bronchoscope, and this method is likely to be useful for investigating the small airways in vivo.  (+info)

Influence of airway-occluding instruments on airway pressure during jet ventilation for rigid bronchoscopy. (4/100)

We measured changes in airway pressure (Paw) caused by microsurgical instruments introduced into a rigid bronchoscope during high frequency jet ventilation (HFJV). With approval of the institutional Ethics Committee, 10 adults undergoing elective tracheobronchial endoscopy and endosonography during general anaesthesia were investigated. Inflation of an endosonography probe balloon in the left main stem bronchus caused airway obstruction. Pressure measurements proximal and distal to the obstruction were compared after three degrees of obstruction (0%, 50% and 90%) and with two different driving pressure settings. Airway obstruction increased the mean (SD) peak inspiratory pressure (PIP) from 7.5 (2.6) to 9.5 (3.5) mm Hg for 2 atm (P = 0.0008) and from 9.7 (3.7) to 13.0 (5.1) mm Hg for 3 atm (P = 0.0001). Airway obstruction did not alter peripheral PIP (7.2 (4.1) to 7.1 (3.7) mm Hg for 2 atm and 8.8 (4.3) to 9.4 (5.2) mm for 3 atm), but resulted in an end-expiratory pressure (EEP) beyond the narrowing being significantly greater than in the unobstructed airway (2.5 (3.4) to 5.5 (3.7) mm Hg for 2 atm; P = 0.0005) and 3.2 (3.6) to 8.0 (4.3) mm for 3 atm; P < 0.0001). Severe airway narrowing increases inspiratory pressure proximal and expiratory pressure distal to the obstruction in relation to the applied driving pressure. Since the distal EEP never exceeded PIP, even near-total airway obstruction should not cause severe lung distension or barotrauma in subjects with normal lungs.  (+info)

Flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy. Anesthesia, technique and results. (5/100)

During a period of three years, 256 diagnostic bronchoscopies were done with flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopes at a Veterans Administration hospital. In all of these procedures, topical cocaine hydrochloride anesthesia was used, and it proved satisfactory and free of any undesirable side effects. The peroral route using an endotracheal tube is preferred for flexible bronchofiberscopy. Fluoroscopic guidance is essential in examining peripheral lung lesions. A 70 percent positive yield was obtained for patients with peripheral carcinoma of the lung as contrasted to a 47 percent yield when the tissue specimens were obtained blindly.  (+info)

Identification of a contaminating Mycobacterium tuberculosis strain with a transposition of an IS6110 insertion element resulting in an altered spoligotype. (6/100)

Molecular fingerprinting with the IS6110 insertion sequence is useful for tracking transmission of Mycobacterium tuberculosis within a population or confirming specimen contamination in the laboratory or through instrumentation. Secondary typing with other molecular methods yields additional information as to the relatedness of strains with similar IS6110 fingerprints. Isolated, relatively rare, random events within the M. tuberculosis genome alter molecular fingerprinting patterns with any of the methods; therefore, strains which are different by two or more typing methods are usually not considered to be closely related. In this report, we describe two strains of M. tuberculosis, obtained from the same bronchoscope 2 days apart, that demonstrated unique molecular fingerprinting patterns by two different typing methods. They were closely linked through the bronchoscope by a traditional epidemiologic investigation. Genetic analysis of the two strains revealed that a single event, the transposition of an IS6110 insertion sequence in one of the strains, accounted for both the differences in the IS6110 pattern and the apparent deletion of a spacer in the spoligotype. This finding shows that a single event can change the molecular fingerprint of a strain in two different molecular typing systems, and thus, molecular typing cannot be the only means used to track transmission of this organism through a population. Traditional epidemiologic techniques are a necessary complement to molecular fingerprinting so that radical changes within the fingerprint pattern can be identified.  (+info)

Ultrathin bronchoscopy as an adjunct to standard bronchoscopy in the diagnosis of peripheral lung lesions. A preliminary report. (7/100)

BACKGROUND: The role of the standard bronchoscope as a method of diagnosis of peripheral lung lesions is limited. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the role of the ultrathin bronchoscope as an adjunct to standard bronchoscopy in the diagnosis of peripheral lung lesions. METHODS: Seventeen consecutive patients with a peripheral lung lesion on chest radiography or chest CT. All patients underwent a bronchoscopic examination with a standard size bronchoscope, and if there was no evidence of endobronchial lesion, these patients were subsequently examined with an Olympus 3C40 ultrathin bronchoscope (external diameter of 3.6 mm). Under fluoroscopic guidance, cytological brushing samples were taken with the ultrathin bronchoscope followed by a reexamination with the standard bronchoscope which followed the same 'pathway' to the lesion established by the 3C40 ultrathin bronchoscope. Transbronchial biopsies (TBB) and cytological samples were taken with the standard bronchoscope. RESULTS: The size of the lesions ranged from 1.5 to 7.0 cm. A positive bronchoscopic diagnosis by TBB was obtained in 11 out of 17 patients (64.7%) and a diagnosis of atypical cells suspicious for malignancy noted in a further 3 patients. For lesions less than 3 cm in size, a positive diagnosis by TBB was achieved in 7 out of 10 of these cases. The lesion was directly visualized with the ultrathin bronchoscope in 4 cases. CONCLUSIONS: Ultrathin bronchoscopy appears to be a useful adjunct to standard bronchoscopy by providing an accurate pathway to the lesion in question. However, further studies with larger patient groups are warranted.  (+info)

Endoluminal stent graft repair of aortobronchial fistulas. (8/100)

OBJECTIVE: To describe our experience with endoluminal stent graft repair of aortobronchial fistulas. METHODS: We reviewed the records of patients treated with endoluminal stent grafting of aortobronchial fistulas at a private teaching hospital. All patients underwent the following diagnostic studies: computed tomography, angiography, bronchoscopy, and transesophageal echocardiography. With standard endovascular techniques, two different devices were implanted. RESULTS: Between March 1997 and October 2000, we treated four patients with postsurgical fistulas. The patients were diagnosed with hemoptysis between 3 and 23 years after aortic replacement grafting for thoracic aneurysms. Diagnostic studies varied in their ability to find the fistula. Transesophageal echocardiography most reliably demonstrated the fistula in the patients. All were successfully treated by exclusion with endoluminal stent grafting. The patients had no complications and no further episodes of hemoptysis. CONCLUSION: Endoluminal stent grafting of aortobronchial fistulas is feasible and may become the preferred method of management in patients at high risk.  (+info)

METHODS: 36 patients who had airway Ultraflex stents removed by flexible bronchoscope from 2002 to 2009 were reviewed. Factors contributing to removal method and complications during and after removal were analyzed by multinomial logistic regression. RESULTS: Among 36 patients with stent extraction; 17 stents (47.2%) were removed by a single procedure and 19 (52.8%) by multiple procedures. There was no mortality or severe morbidity during or after stent removal. There were 21 complications after stent removal, including retained stent pieces (n = 9), mucosal tear ...
The Olympus Bronchoscope is just one of the bronchoscopes available to medical centers; however, Olympus voluntarily recalled 4,400 products, of which 2,300 were in use at hospitals, in 2001. It was believed that bacteria could grow on the instruments, and cause infections in patients. An Olympus Bronchoscope was designed to examine a patient for lung infections, pneumonia, and lung cancer. A bronchoscope is a tube that has an attached camera. Qualified physicians will place the tube through a patient\\\s nose or mouth, in order to look into their lungs. Bronchoscopes employ fiber optic technology to evaluate a patient\\\s airways and rule out respiratory problems. In 2001, when Olympus put in effect a fifteen-model voluntary recall, it was discovered that the Bronchoscopes, though being cleaned properly, still contained bacteria. This bacteria is called pseudomonas, which can cause disease in humans and animals. It was being trapped by the bronchoscope and could spread to patients, and ...
The simple solution, then, is to switch to sterilization, right? While the study recommends hospitals consider using sterilization or single-use bronchoscopes to prevent spreading infection to patients through contaminated bronchoscopes, sterilization comes with its own set of challenges.. Those include longer turnaround times, expensive machinery and additional supplies.. The study, Managing Bronchoscope Quality and Cost: Results of a real-world study, was conducted by Cori L. Ofstead, MSPH; Krystina M. Hopkins, MPH; John E. Eiland, RN, MS; and Harry P. Wetzler, MD, MSPH. It builds on a related study last year, published in Chest Journal, that examined the effectiveness of the cleaning processes for reusable bronchoscopes.. Bronchoscopes, a type of endoscope, are delicate instruments that enable practitioners to see the airways to the lungs and perform interventions such as lung biopsies or removing pus and tumors. Reusable bronchoscopes also pose a high risk of cross-contamination. Sterile, ...
Despite the advances in optical technology, proper training and experience is crucial to optimise the outcome and minimise the risk of complications in tracheobronchial foreign body removal by a bronchoscope.. Although the rigid bronchoscope is still considered as the safest instrument in most paediatric centres, there is no doubt that the fibreoptic bronchoscope is the preferred tool for the initial diagnosis of a foreign body in adult patients.2,19,32 At present flexible bronchoscopes in different sizes are available for different age groups. The bronchoscopes with 4.9 mm outer diameter and a 2.2 mm diameter working channel are used in patients older than 12 years of age. Although bronchoscopes with 3.5 mm or 2.7 mm outer diameter with 1.2 mm diameter working channels are available for younger patients, using the flexible bronchoscope under local anaesthesia in a very young patient is a very difficult procedure. In such cases, rigid bronchoscopy under general anaesthesia is probably the safest ...
This paper describes the investigation of an unexpected rise in the number of bronchoscopic cultures growing Pseudomonas and Serratia spp in a community hospital. Over a 4 month period 20 of 43 samples tested positive for one or both organisms. All 20 positive cultures were from procedures performed using newly purchased bronchoscopes. Identical organisms were isolated from the biopsy port of the new bronchoscopes and the sink trap in the endoscopy unit. One patient was readmitted with Pseudomonas pneumonia. During the same period there were no positive samples from older bronchoscopes used in the department. The biopsy port cap was found to be loose on all four new bronchoscopes. The manufacturer subsequently recalled approximately 14 000 bronchoscopes worldwide for modification. New devices are less likely than drugs to have their safety established clinically before they are marketed. Effective surveillance of marketed medical devices could identify low frequency adverse events including ...
Bronchoscopes are becoming more and more commonly used, both in hospitals and by ENTs (Ear, Nose, and Throat specialists). Due to their small size and flexibility, bronchoscopes can be used to view areas of the throat, head, and sinuses that other tools simply cannot reach safety or effectively. Bronchoscopes have allowed doctors to make better, quicker diagnoses of a number of diseases.. Because they are used for an invasive procedure, and are particularly associated with being used with people who are suffering from an infection, it is extremely important that bronchoscopes be properly disinfected between uses. Each manufacturer has set detailed guidelines regarding precisely how to disinfect their product. It is pivotal that healthcare professionals follow these guidelines exactly.. Following reports of infection from people who were exposed to bacteria and viruses while having a bronchoscopy, the federal government began to look into whether or not these guidelines were being followed on a ...
The disposable bronchoscope is an excellent alternative to face the problem of SARS-CoV-2 and other cross infections, but the bronchoscopists perception of its quality has not been evaluated. To evaluate the quality of the Ambu-aScope4 disposable bronchoscope, we carried out a cross-sectional study in 21 Spanish pulmonology services. We use a standardized questionnaire completed by the bronchoscopists at the end of each bronchoscopy. The variables were described with absolute and relative frequencies, measures of central tendency and dispersion depending on their nature. The existence of learning curves was evaluated by CUSUM analysis. The most frequent indications in 300 included bronchoscopies was bronchial aspiration in 69.3% and the median duration of these was 9.1 min. The route of entry was nasal in 47.2% and oral in 34.1%. The average score for ease of use, image, and aspiration quality was 80/100. All the planned techniques were performed in 94.9% and the bronchoscopist was satisfied in 96.6%
We thank Drs. Ng and Neustein for their interest in our research.1 Addressing Dr. Ngs letter, we fully agree with his comments that more attention should be given while training residents or staff anesthesiologists in lung isolation techniques, with particular emphasis on tracheobronchial anatomy and skills in fiberoptic bronchoscopy. In fact, after we published our study,1 we designed a second study based on the lessons that we learned previously. Because the previous study did not demonstrate any advantage between the left-sided double-lumen endotracheal tubes and bronchial blockers (Univent®[Vitaid Ltd., Lewiston, NY] and Arndt®[Cook Critical Care, Bloomington, IN] blocker) and because the most common device used for lung isolation is the left-sided double-lumen endotracheal tube, we are currently conducting a new study, involving the use of left-sided double-lumen endotracheal tubes among anesthesiologists with limited experience in thoracic anesthesia (i.e. , less than two lung isolation ...

Acute bronchitis. Bronchoscope view of the two bronchi at the bottom of the windpipe (trachea) of a patient with acute bronchitis. The mucosal lining of these airways is inflamed and coated with a thick secretion called sputum. Acute bronchitis (temporary inflammation of the bronchi) causes shortness of breath, wheezing, and a persistent cough with yellow-green sputum. It most often occurs after a cold or flu, and is common in smokers and the elderly. The condition usually clears up spontaneously, but may be treated with antibiotics if bacterial infection is suspected. A bronchoscope is a fibre-optic viewing device that is inserted in the windpipe to study the bronchi. - Stock Image M120/0066

The lubricated ETT was then advanced into the oral airway with the preformed concavity oriented anteriorly (12 oclock). If insertion was impeded, a lubricated 2.3 mm Cook® airway exchange catheter was inserted via the ETT beside the FOB until the tip of the catheter was visualized near the carina; the ETT was then advanced over the bronchoscope and the Cook® exchange catheter. If this maneuver failed to pass the tube into the trachea after two or three attempts, both the FOB and ETT were removed and tracheal intubation was performed by direct rigid laryngoscopy. In each case, the ease of ETT advancement was graded as follows: grade I indicates successful advancement of the ETT over the FOB; grade II indicates successful advancement of the ETT over the FOB by using a Cook® airway exchange catheter; and grade III indicates that ETT passage was unsuccessful despite the use of the Cook® airway exchange catheter, and intubation was performed by direct laryngoscopy. Also, the incidence of ...
Background:. Flexible fiberoptic bronchoscope may be a valuable procedure to evaluate pulmonary nodules. However, a diagnostic yield has been reported as low as 34% for peripheral lesions less than 2 cm in size.. Objectives:. This case series study evaluated the value of the virtual bronchoscopic navigation (VBN) combined with endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) for diagnosing peripheral pulmonary lesions.. Methods:. Enrolled subjects were patients with pulmonary lesions which were deemed too small and peripheral for a conventional bronchoscopic sampling, who were referred to Kameda Medical Center for diagnostic bronchoscopy between September 2010 and February 2012. VBN was utilized to produce a pathway into the target lesion. Once the fiberoptic bronchoscope was advanced as far as possible in this pathway, a guide sheath with EBUS probe was then advanced to the target lesion under fluoroscopy guidance. After visualization of the lesion by EBUS, the probe was removed leaving the guide sheath in ...
In 1964, Dr. Shigeto Ikeda established patterns for the first flexible bronchoscope. Due to his great interest in the diagnosis of premature lung cancer, Dr. Ikeda developed an instrument that could enter even subsegmentar bronchium, visualize lesions and obtain biopsies and/or material for cytological exam. And in 1966, Machida Endoscopic Company Ltd. and Olympys Optical Company Ltd. produced the first bronchialfibroscope prototype. In April of 1970, Dr. Shigeto Ikeda presented his instrument and his initial experience in the annual meeting of the American Bronchoesophagology Association. Since then, the flexible bronchoscope became an instrumento of major importance to the diagnosis of several pulmonary diseases ...
The core elements in performing flexible bronchoscopy include administration of patient sedation, topical anesthesia, airway inspection, and sampling via various techniques. Conscious or moderate sedation commonly includes benzodiazepines like midazolam, though opiates such as fentanyl may also be employed synergistically. In certain circumstances deep sedation or general anesthesia may be necessary, as adequate sedation is important for patient comfort and providing a more controlled procedural environment.. Topical anesthesia is generally accomplished with 1% lidocaine. Prior to intravenous sedation, nebulized lidocaine may be used with or without a bronchodilator. Two percent lidocaine gel can be applied to the nares if the bronchoscope will be introduced nasally. Injection of a 1 percent lidocaine solution through the bronchoscope into the trachea, main carina, and large proximal airways helps with cough suppression. The maximum dose of lidocaine should be limited to 8.2 mg/kg in adults, ...
There are only two absolute indications for lung isolation:. 1. Avoiding lung contamination. Healthy lung tissue can be contaminated by hemorrhage or infection.. 2. Isolating massive air leaks. These are usually due to bronchopleural fistula. Lung surgery used to be considerd a relative indication for single-lung ventilation, i.e. nice to have but not essential for performing surgery. In cases where lung isolation was difficult to achieve, it was in the past almost always possible to retract lung tissue as most surgery was performed through an open thoracotomy access to the chest. However, more lung (resection) operations are now performed video-assisted through an endoscopic approach. It is much more difficult if not impossible for the surgeon to simply retract lung with endoscopic instruments!. ...

The doctor will insert the tip of the bronchoscope into one of your nostrils and then gently guide it round the back of your throat into your windpipe (trachea). (It is sometimes passed via your mouth rather than via your nose if you have narrow nasal passages.) The bronchoscope may make you cough.. The doctor looks down the bronchoscope and inspects the lining of your trachea and main bronchi (the main airways). Bronchoscopes transmit pictures through a camera attachment on to a TV monitor for the doctor to look at. The doctor may take one or more samples (biopsies) of parts of the inside lining of the airways - depending on why the test is done and what they see. This is painless. The biopsy samples are sent to the laboratory for testing and to be looked at under the microscope ...

The Spiration Valve is a small, one-way valve that is used to block air from entering diseased portions of the lung. This helps to reduce the volume in diseased lung due to hyperinflation. Volume reduction of diseased lung has been shown to improve lung function and other quality of life measures for people living with emphysema.. The Spiration Valve is placed in the diseased section of the lungs using a tool called a bronchoscope. A bronchoscope is a small tube that has a camera on the end. The bronchoscope enters the lungs through the mouth. The Spiration Valve is delivered and placed in the targeted airways via another thin tube called a catheter that travels through the bronchoscope.. ...

A bronchoscope adapter is configured for one hand operation by providing a slide lock that is captured within a housing and a retaining nut that can be operated with a single finger or thumb. Rotation of the retaining nut is eased by isolating rotational force from a compression block with a spacer ring.
As lung cancer screening is more readily adopted, ways to diagnose and treat the disease at its earliest stage is more critical than ever before. Only the Olympus EBUS Solution offers radial EBUS, which is recommended in the 2013 AACP Lung Cancer Guidelines for real-time confirmation of lesion location. The radial EBUS procedure is performed by inserting a miniature ultrasound probe (radial EBUS probe) through the working channel of a flexible bronchoscope or catheter (guide sheath). Real-time imaging of the surrounding tissue enables the clinician to determine the lesions exact location and size. LimelightPlayerUtil.initEmbed(limelight_player_202226);

The goal of this proposal is to design a portable bronchoscope that can determine the health status of the tracheal epithelial lining cells by analyzing changes in their metabolic profile. The device is intended to be used to quickly single out which individuals is showing injury and inflammation in the trachea and lung and therefore to provide them with the most adequate and early care. In this closing year 1 funding period, we have built the bronchoscope and done some preliminary testing on mouse trachea samples exposed to chemicals known to injure the tracheal epithelium. The size of the bronchoscope is quite small and will allow its transport and use by the military in the field or remote locations, while the small size of the instrument could permit its use on awake patients. Following evaluation of the field of research we have decided to develop a hybrid system Camera and Raster with two modalities seek and focus. The former modality will allow low magnification scan of the trachea and lung
The Spiration Valve is an umbrella-shaped, one-way valve that is placed via a delivery catheter, introduced through the working channel of a flexible bronchoscope.. The valve consists of a nitinol frame covered with a polymer membrane and five anchors that securely engage the airway walls at the targeted treatment location. Once in place, the Spiration Valve limits airflow to damaged tissue while allowing trapped air and fluid to escape. A reduction in air flow to damaged lung has been shown to accelerate resolution of an air leak. Because air leaks are transient in nature, the Spiration Valve was designed to be removed upon resolution of the leak.4 ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - A micro double capillary method for rheologic measurements of lower airway secretions. AU - Kim, C. S.. AU - Berkley, B. B.. AU - Abraham, William W. AU - Wanner, A.. PY - 1982/12/1. Y1 - 1982/12/1. N2 - We modified the double capillary method of Philipoff et al. to allow rheologic measurements of lower respiratory secretions. The system consists of a precision bore stainless steel capillary (0.58 mm i.d., 5 mm length), a glass capillary (0.92 mm i.d., 15 mm length) and a sample holding tube (1.5 mm i.d., 15 mm length). This series of capillaries is connected to a long polyethylene catheter which permits advancing the system through the inner channel of a fiberoptic bronchoscope, and the placing of the sample holding tube into the lower airways for the aspiration of secretions under direct vision. The required sample volume is 20 μl. The capillary is then removed from the fiberoptic bronchoscope and placed on a microscope stage; the movement of the meniscus of the sample under ...
BACKGROUND:. Exacerbations of COPD are associated with accelerated deterioration of respiratory symptoms and pulmonary function. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMP) are a family of endopeptidases involved in extracellular matrix cleavage. We hypothesize that there is a difference in the expression and the enzymatic activity of MMP in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) of COPD patients with and without exacerbation.. METHODS:. Seventy patients with COPD diagnosed according to the GOLD guidelines with either stable disease or exacerbation and undergoing diagnostic bronchoscopy were included in this prospective cohort study. BAL was performed by installation of 3 x 50 ml of pyrogen-free sterile NaCL 0.9% solution over the working channel of the bronchoscope according to standard guidelines. Enzymatic activity of MMP was assessed by gelatin zymography and protein levels of MMP-2, MMP-9 and of tissue inhibitors of MMP (TIMP) were measured by ELISA.. RESULTS:. Data of 40 patients with COPD (stable COPD ...

A fiberoptic bronchoscopy is a procedure that allows your physician to examine the breathing passages (airways) of the lungs. This procedure can either be for diagnostic reasons, to find out more about a problem or for therapeutic reasons, to treat an existing problem ...
I dont actually see lung tissue where masses and pneumonia occur. I can only see and remain in the larger airways, roadways of the lungs. Fine wire instruments are passed through the bronchoscope to extend further into smaller airways and into the lungs but I cannot directly visualize beyond the end of the bronchoscope. I may, however, use x-ray guidance or computer assisted navigation (GPS for the lungs) in order to improve the accuracy of where my wire instruments go ...

The first thing your doctor will do is insert a narrow, flexible tube with a camera on the end (bronchoscope, see Figure 7) through your mouth or nose. The camera helps your doctor see inside your airways. Next the doctor will put another narrow, flexible tube with a small balloon on the end (balloon catheter) through the bronchoscope and into your airways. The balloon does two things: (1) when it is inflated it will briefly block the airway to show if it leads to the leaking tissue (see Figure 8) and (2) it will measure the size of that airway. Your doctor will use this information to choose the best valve sizes to fit your airways.. ...

Rigid bronchoscopy was first performed in 1897 by Gustav Killian to remove a pork bone impacted in the airway of a farmer. Chevalier Jackson was responsible for the development of rigid bronchoscopy in the United States. As the field of interventional pulmonology has evolved, rigid bronchoscopy has gained increased popularity as a tool to manage benign and malignant disease of the central airways. Many endobronchial therapies including endobronchial stent placement, balloon dilation, tumor debulking, foreign body removal, laser photo resection, electrocautery, argon plasma coagulation, and cryotherapy can be performed safely and efficiently with rigid bronchoscopy.. The design of the rigid bronchoscope has changed little over the last hundred years. The design of this scope includes a rigid, straight, hollow metallic tube made of stainless steel. The tube is available in various external diameters, ranging from 3 mm to 14 mm. The scopes diameter is constant from the proximal to distal end, with ...
Multiple commercially available platforms to perform electronavigation bronchoscopy exist with slight variations in both pre-procedural planning and execution of the procedure. We will address the procedural techniques in a general manner.. Several preparatory steps are required prior to performing the bronchoscopy. A thin cut CT scan is performed in order to be able to contruct a 3-dimensional rendering of the airway tree. This allows for the creation of an airway map and delineation of a pathway to the target lesion. The CT images are then transferred to a laptop computer containing specific proprietary software and the procedure is planned, creating a virtual map that is placed in the navigational system.. The patient is positioned supine in an electromagnetic field with sensors placed over the chest so as to track bronchoscope via a guide that is advanced through the working channel of the bronchoscope. The bronchoscope is directed towards the target via directions from the virtual map. ...
Olympus has introduced PeriView FLEX needle, which will enable improved access to peripheral pulmonary lesions during transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) procedures that are conducted in the diagnosis of lung diseases. The device features Olympus FLEX-cut technology, an innovation leveraging a spiral pattern of laser cuts on the needle, for unprecedented flexibility. The flexibility of the needle is a major advantage as it does not limit articulation of the bronchoscope making it difficult to reach certain target locations.. Furthermore, the PeriView FLEX TBNA needle is the only TBNA needle that can be used with the Olympus 2.0 mm guide sheath. This smaller guide sheath provides an extension of the bronchoscopes working channel, which creates an extended reach and when combined with the PeriView FLEX, enables better access when compared to other TBNA needles on the market.. Currently, CT Guided needle aspiration, a form of transthoracic needle aspiration (TTNA) is the typical approach for ...
Bronchoscopy What is bronchoscopy? Bronchoscopy is a procedure to look directly at the airways in the lungs through a thin, lighted tube (bronchoscope). The bronchoscope is put in the nose or mouth, moved down the throat and trachea (windpipe), and into the airways. A healthcare provider can then see the voice box (larynx), trachea, large airways to the lungs (bronchi), and smaller branches of the bronchi (bronchioles). There are 2 types of bronchoscope: flexible and rigid. Both types come in different ...
The most important endoscopic method in respiratory medicine is bronchoscopy; for diagnostic purposes, this is almost exclusively performed with a flexible bronchoscope using video-assisted imaging, usually under local anaesthetic (figure 4). Bronchoscopy is associated with very few complications. The procedure not only allows inspection and sampling of the airways, but also facilitates transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) from the lymph nodes, sampling material from peripheral lesions with special catheters and brushes, or transbronchial lung biopsy (TBLB) by forceps, often under guidance of EBUS or fluoroscopy. A more elaborate technique to guide the bronchoscopist to small lesions is electromagnetic navigation.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Does the route of local anesthesia and insertion influence oxygenation in patients undergoing flexible bronchoscopy?. AU - Sajkov, Dimitar. AU - Stefanovski, Tome. AU - Douglas McEvoy, R.. PY - 1996/1/1. Y1 - 1996/1/1. N2 - Hypoxemia is a common complication of flexible bronchoscopy (FFB). This study compares the degree of hypoxemia produced with two approaches to FFB: nebulized lidocaine (NBL) followed by endotracheal tube (ETT) placement, and transcricoid injection of lidocaine (TCL) followed by transnasal insertion of the bronchoscope. A total of 50 patients (49 males; mean age, 48 ± 7.6 years) examined by two practitioners for diagnostic purposes was included in the study. Patients were premedicated with diazepam and atropine sulfate and examined in the supine position. According to the techniques used for local anesthesia and instrument approach, patients were randomly allocated into two groups: NBL/oral group - 27 subjects had NBL followed by peroral passage of the scope ...
PURPOSE: To describe perfusion patterns of peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs) in COVID-19 patients using contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS).. PATIENTS AND METHODS: From April 2020 until July 2020, 11 consecutive patients with RT-PCR-confirmed COVID-19 and PPLs sized over 5 mm were investigated by B-mode ultrasound (B-US) and CEUS. The homogeneity of enhancement (homogeneous and inhomogeneous) was examined retrospectively using CEUS. An inhomogeneous enhancement was defined as a perfused lesion with coexisting non-perfused areas (NPA).. RESULTS: On B-US, all 11 patients showed an interstitial syndrome (B-lines) with PPLs between 0.5 and 6 cm. On CEUS, all cases showed peripheral NPA during the complete CEUS examination. One patient underwent a partial lung resection with subsequent histopathological examination. The histological examination showed vasculitis, microthrombus in the alveolar capillary, and small obliterated vessels.. CONCLUSION: In our case series, PPLs in patients with ...

Most bronchoscopies leave very few after-effects. Your nose and throat may become a little sore for a day or so. You may also feel sleepy or tired for a few hours, and should watch out for chest or throat infections.. In addition, if you have biopsy along with this test, you may cough up a little blood the next day. Even though a rigid bronchoscope scratches or tears your airways, the risks involved are limited. Only 1 in 1000 bronchoscopies can experience serious complications.. Remember, the conditions under which your doctors use the bronchoscopy are very serious health complications. It is mainly used to detect life-threatening cardiac problems or for low oxygen levels in your lungs. It is therefore very important for you to have a bronchoscopy, particularly if your doctor insists.. Complications that results from fiber-optic bronchoscopy are very few and some of them mainly include either heart and blood vessel problems or excessive bleeding after biopsy. Lung biopsy very rarely (almost 1%) ...

Please do not bring any valuables or wear any jewellery when you come to hospital.. On arrival to Mater Hospital Brisbane please report to the admissions desk on Level 5, Day Procedure Unit.. On your admission your nurse will explain the procedure fully to you and answer any of your questions and concerns. Before the procedure begins, you may be given a medication (via an injection in your vein) that will help you relax and reduce coughing and throat irritation.. Sometimes you will not remember having the bronchoscopy because of the sedative. Your nose and throat may be sprayed with local anaesthetic to make them numb. The bronchoscope will be passed through the mouth or nose down through the voice box into the air tubes. The bronchoscope does not stop your normal breathing. You may cough but this normally settles once the local anaesthetic takes effect. Your procedure will take about 30 minutes to one hour.. ...
All patients with massive haemoptysis should be monitored in an intensive care unit (ICU) or high dependency unit (HDU) and the patients fitness for surgery established. Attempts should be made to determine the side of bleeding and the patient positioned with the bleeding side down to prevent aspiration into the unaffected lung. Blood loss should be treated with volume resuscitation, blood transfusion, and correction of coagulopathy. If large volume bleeding continues or the airway is compromised, the patients trachea should be intubated with as large an endotracheal tube as is possible to allow adequate suctioning and access for bronchoscopy.2 If the bleeding can only be localised to the right or left lung, unilateral lung intubation may protect the non-bleeding lung.23 For right sided bleeding a bronchoscope may be directed into the left main bronchus which can then be selectively intubated over the bronchoscope with the patient lying in the right lateral position (fig 4). The left lung is ...
