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)

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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
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.. ...

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 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 ...

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 ...

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.. ...

The device is designed to reduce the risk of traumatic intubation, which is more likely to occur in (mainly) two situations:. 1. Nasal intubation, particularly with a narrow passage, e.g. due to relatively large turbinates. 2. Oral intubation with a Seldinger technique, i.e. over an introducer device such as a gum-elastic bougie, a fiberoptic bronchoscope, an Aintree intubation catheter, etc., where a gap or sudden step-up exists between the introducer device and the ET tubes outer diameter. This increase in diameter can lead to the ET tube getting caught, most likely at the level of the laryngeal inlet or vocal chords. Attempts to advance the ET tube over the introducer device can then be either unsuccessful or cause trauma.. ...

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.. ...

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 ...

0026] The clamping block 40 may include a beveled collar 46 radiating from its outer wall. The beveled collar 46 includes a beveled surface 48 and a flat surface 50. The flat surface 50 is configured to be acted upon by a spacer ring 52, which is, in turn, acted upon by the nut 80 when tightened. The spacer ring 52 is constructed of a rigid material such that it provides a surface against which the nut 80 may slide when rotated thereagainst. The spacer ring 52 thus reduces the degree to which rotational motion of the nut 80 is transmitted to the elastomeric material of the clamping block 40. The beveled surface 48 acts against a corresponding surface the housing 22 to prevent axial movement of the clamping block 40 when the nut 80 is tightened. The beveled surface 48 also transmits axial compression to an inward deformation of the central lumen 42 such that any tool disposed within the central lumen 42 is squeezed by the clamping block 40. Additionally, the central lumen 42 of the clamping block ...

Definition : Stents designed for deployment into the trachea and the main stems of the bronchi, to provide support and/or to maintain patency of the respiratory airways, facilitating the flow of air into the lungs. These devices typically consist of a plastic (e.g., silicone) bifurcated tube (Y-shape). The bifurcated tracheobronchial stents fit snugly into the distal trachea, the carina, and the proximal bronchi. The stent surface may be coated to add special capabilities to the stent (e.g., water-repellant); they are usually deployed using a catheter and a rigid bronchoscope. Tracheobronchial stents are used to treat stenosis of the trachea, carina, and/or main stems of the bronchi caused either by benign diseases, injuries, or malignant tumors..

In arthroscopy, an endoscope is inserted into a joint using a small incision. It is performed to examine and treat various orthopedic disorders. It is used for conditions such as torn cartilage, ACL reconstruction, torn surface cartilage, and trimming of damaged cartilage. In bronchoscopy a practitioner will use endoscopy for viewing the inside of airways for therapeutic or diagnostic purposes. A bronchoscope is used in this procedure, which is inserted into the airways either through the nose or mouth, or sometimes through a tracheotomy. Colonoscopy lets a practitioner view inside the large intestine. Due to this procedure the doctor can detect any abnormal growths, ulcers, or inflamed tissue. Apart from these procedures there are other endoscopy procedures such as cystoscopy, laparoscopy, thoracotomy, mediastinoscopy, etc ...

Care guide for Rigid Bronchoscopy (Inpatient Care). Includes: possible causes, signs and symptoms, standard treatment options and means of care and support.
In this paper a new bronchoscopic method was developed and tested, that performs measuring both cross-sectional areas and length of central airway stenoses in real-time. Furthemore this method enables to represent a three-dimensional reconstruction of the airway section that was analysed. To measure th cross-section area, a laser probe inserted into the operating channel of a bronchoscope projects a ring of light onto the trachal wall and marks the cross-sectional area. A new software especially developed for this method makes it possible to identify the projected ring of light and measures the cross-sectional area after applying lens distortion correction algorithms. By saving a succession of cross-sections 3D-data is provided for visualizing and volume calculation. The measuring accurracy was first tested employing plastic tubes with known diameters and 17 models of porcine trachea. The cilinical evaluation was realized in a pilot study. Sections of different length of tracheas of 10 patients ...

An accurate understanding of the position of the target lesion is essential to improve the diagnostic rate of TBNA, because failure to place the needle within the lesion is the leading cause of a low biopsy yield. The advent of new technologies such as EBUS and CT fluoroscopy has led to the concept of integration with TBNA to improve the diagnostic yield. Although EBUS images show target lesions beyond the airway, needle penetration of the target lesion could not be proved by EBUS using a single-channel bronchoscope. To confirm whether the target lesion was aspirated, rapid on-site cytopa-thology was needed immediately after aspiration. In this study, high diagnostic rates were established by EBUS-D without requiring rapid on-site cytopathology because the real-time EBUS image confirmed that the TBNA needle was within the lesion, in which it offered as a hyperechoic point. An advantage of EBUS-D is that if the TBNA needle is not placed correctly on the first penetration, relocation of the ...

Abstract:Introduction: Non-resolving pneumonia is always a challenging clinical scenario where various diagnostic modalities are greatly required to reach the diagnosis. We aimed to study the role of fiberoptic bronchoscopy in non-resolving pneumonia along with the various comorbidities associated with the disease condition. Materials and Methods: A cross sectional study in a tertiary care hospital was undertaken. A total of 60 patients diagnosed with non-resolving consolidation were recruited for diagnostic fiberoptic bronchoscopy. Results: The overall diagnostic yield of fiberoptic bronchoscopy in non-resolving pneumonia was 96.66%. The causes of non-resolving pneumonia were tuberculosis (40 ...
Clarithromycin is a new macrolide that has a longer half-life than erythromycin and is claimed to reach higher tissue concentrations. We aimed to investigate whether, following oral administration, the drug and its 14-hydroxy metabolite reach levels in lung tissue that are likely to be clinically effective against common respiratory pathogens. Ten patients undergoing diagnostic bronchoscopy received seven doses of clarithromycin, 500 mg b.i.d. orally. Bronchoscopy was performed at a mean time of 4.25 h after the last dose. At bronchoscopy, bronchial biopsies and bronchoalveolar lavage were performed. Clarithromycin and its 14-OH metabolite were measured in serum, bronchial biopsies, epithelial lining fluid (ELF) and alveolar cells. Mean levels of clarithromycin were 4.0 mg.l-1 in serum, 16.8 mg.kg in bronchial biopsies, 20.5 mg.l-1 in ELF and 372.7 mg.l-1 in alveolar cells. The equivalent levels of 14-OH metabolite were 0.7, 2.7, 1.9 and 38.6 mg.l-1, respectively. We conclude that there is ...

This approach, which is consistent with traditional principles of infectious disease practice (2), increases the likelihood that true pathogens will be covered, while minimizing unnecessary antimicrobial therapy (1). However, how this information can best be translated into clinical practice remains to be determined. The authors invasive protocol included diagnostic bronchoscopy, a labor-intensive and costly procedure that is not without risk (3). It is possible that respiratory secretions obtained by nurse-performed mini-bronchoalveolar lavage (3) might be equally informative (as even conventionally suctioned tracheal secretions might be, if cultures were performed and interpreted appropriately [2]). Quantitative cultures of respiratory secretions, as used by Fagon and colleagues in their invasive protocol, are also labor intensive and are not available at most centers. However, even conventional semi-quantitative smears and cultures might provide the discriminating power needed to ...

The reintroduction in the mid-1990s of the surgical method originally conceived by Brantigan et al. [1], lung volume reduction, showed that under certain circumstances this treatment could improve the forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1), indices of resting hyperinflation and quality of life [2].. However, three factors taken together have meant that lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) has been useful in only a minority of patients. A significant proportion of patients, between one-quarter and one-third, fail to derive significant benefit from the procedure. This in itself might not matter if it were not for the second problem, which is that in large series, the mortality rate has been ≥4-5% [2-4]. While this risk might be acceptable if success were guaranteed, it is less appealing if it is not. Finally, in order to reduce mortality and morbidity, most groups impose safety criteria so that patients who are too disabled are not eligible for LVRS. Thus, in the present authors centre, ...

PY - 2011/11/23. Y1 - 2011/11/23. N2 - Objectives: There are safety issues associated with propofol use for flexible bronchoscopy (FB). The bispectral index (BIS) correlates well with the level of consciousness. The aim of this study was to show that BIS-guided propofol infusion is safe and may provide better sedation, benefiting the patients and bronchoscopists. Methods: After administering alfentanil bolus, 500 patients were randomized to either propofol infusion titrated to a BIS level of 65-75 (study group) or incremental midazolam bolus based on clinical judgment to achieve moderate sedation. The primary endpoint was safety, while ...
There were 454 surveys distributed and 250 returned (response rate 55%). Direct laryngoscopy and flexible fibreoptic intubation were the most commonly selected techniques for all five cases. Difficult intubation trolleys were available to 98% of responders. Certain types of equipment (such as fibreoptic bronchoscopes and cricothyroidotomy kits) were available less frequently in private institutions. We recommend a standardisation of difficult airway management equipment and an on-going training program to provide support for anaesthetists in all locations ...

Prescribed therapy was completed in 13 patients (18 courses). All patients had prior full-dose external irradiation, and no effective surgical or chemotherapeutic options remained. While many have had a trial of neodymium-YAG (yttrium-aluminum-garnet) laser therapy alone, eight patients received laser treatment one to three weeks prior to planned brachytherapy to provide immediate relief of symptoms and/or facilitate access and safe catheter placement. Most patients (64%) had recurrent ...
PURPOSE To describe the anesthetic management of a patient with previous left lower lobe resection who was submitted to a right upper lobectomy and review the changes in gas exchange and respiratory mechanics which occurred intraoperatively. CLINICAL FEATURES A 69-yr-old male with lung cancer, emphysema and obstructive sleep apnea, presented for a right upper lobectomy. His history was also positive for a left lower lobectomy six years previously. Intraoperative lung isolation was achieved using a 41 F left double-lumen tube (DLT). Monitoring the respiratory mechanics allowed for continuous adjustment of ventilator settings during the various phases of the surgery avoiding the risks of barotrauma and volutrauma. Problems with oxygenation occurred during one-lung ventilation. CONCLUSION This case report shows that a severe level of hypoxemia and hypercarbia associated to lung mechanical property changes can be observed during the OLV phase. Application of continuous positive airway pressure on the
