Risk factors for lower airway bacterial colonization in chronic bronchitis. (1/1686)

The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and risk factors for lower airway bacterial colonization (LABC) in stable chronic bronchitis (CB). Forty-one outpatients with CB were enrolled in the study (age 63.8+/-9.1 yrs (mean+/-SD); forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1)/forced vital capacity (FVC) 62.8+/-11.2; current/former smokers 24/17). All patients had normal chest radiographs and an indication for performing fibreoptic bronchoscopy (pulmonary nodule, remote haemoptysis). The protected specimen brush (PSB) was used for bacterial sampling, and concentrations > or = 1,000 colony-forming units (cfu) x mL(-1) were considered positive for LABC. The repeatability of the procedure in CB was assessed in a random subsample of 18 subjects. A 72.2% quantitative agreement was found in the repeatability assessment of the PSB technique. Positive PSB cultures, obtained in 9 out of 41 (22%) patients, mainly yielded Haemophilus influenzae. The logistic regression model, used to determine which variables were related to colonization, showed that LABC was associated with current smoking (odds ratio (OR) 9.83, confidence interval (CI) 1.16-83.20) and low FVC (OR 0.73, CI 0.65-0.81). Age and FEV1 were not related to LABC. It was concluded that the prevalence of LABC in stable CB is high (22%), and current smoking is an important risk factor.  (+info)

Predisposing factors to bacterial colonization in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (2/1686)

The aim of this prospective observational study was to determine those factors influencing bacterial colonization in patients with stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Eighty-eight outpatients with stable COPD and 20 patients with normal spirometry and chest radiography (controls) had a fibreoptic bronchoscopy performed with topical aerosol anaesthesia. Bacterial colonization was determined using the protected specimen brush (PSB) with a cut-off > or = 10(3) colony-forming units (CFU x mL(-1)). The influence of age, degree of airflow obstruction, smoking habit, pack-yrs of smoking, and chest radiographic findings on bacterial colonization were assessed by univariate and multivariate analysis. Significant bacterial growth was found in 40% of patients and in none of the controls. Haemophilus influenzae, Streptococcus viridans, S. pneumoniae and Moraxella catarrhalis were the most frequent pathogens. After adjustment for other variables, severe airflow limitation (odds ratio (OR) 5.11, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.45-17.9) and current smoking (OR 3.17, 95% CI 2.5-8) remained associated with positive bacterial cultures. When only potentially pathogenic micro-organisms were considered, significant bacterial growth was found in 30.7% of patients, with severe airflow obstruction (OR 9.28, 95% CI 2.19-39.3) being the only variable independently associated with positive bacterial cultures. Our results show that stable chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients have a high prevalence of bacterial colonization of distal airways which is mainly related to the degree of airflow obstruction and cigarette smoking.  (+info)

Broncholithiasis: rare but still present. (3/1686)

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)

Vascularity in asthmatic airways: relation to inhaled steroid dose. (4/1686)

BACKGROUND: There is an increase in vascularity in the asthmatic airway. Although inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) are an effective anti-inflammatory treatment in asthma, there are few data on any effects on structural changes. METHODS: Endobronchial biopsy specimens from seven asthmatic subjects not receiving ICS and 15 receiving 200-1500 microg/day beclomethasone dipropionate (BDP) were immunohistochemically stained with an anti-collagen type IV antibody to outline the endothelial basement membrane of the vessels. These were compared with biopsy tissue from 11 non-asthmatic controls (four atopic and seven non-atopic). RESULTS: There was a significant increase in the density of vessels (number of vessels/mm2 of lamina propria) in the asthmatic subjects not on ICS compared with non-asthmatic controls (mean 485 (interquartile range (IQR) 390-597) versus 329 (IQR 248-376) vessels/mm2, p<0.05; 95% CI for the difference 48 to 286). There was no significant difference between asthmatic subjects on ICS and those not on ICS or control subjects in the number of vessels/mm2 (mean 421 (IQR 281-534)). However, patients who received >/=800 microg/day BDP tended to have a reduced number of vessels/mm2 compared with patients not on ICS and those receiving +info)

Aspirated foreign bodies in the tracheobronchial tree: report of 250 cases. (5/1686)

During the last 14 years, 250 patients with aspirated foreign bodies in the tracheobronchial tree were admitted to Kuwait Chest Diseases Hospital. Ninety-six per cent of the cases were under 10 years of age and 38% gave a clear history of foreign body inhalation. The rest were diagnosed either clinically, from the chest radiograph findings or because of unexplained pulmonary symptoms. In 247 cases, bronchoscopy under general anaesthesia was successful in removing the foreign bodies. In only three cases was bronchotomy needed. Seventy per cent of the foreign bodies were melon seeds. Asphyxia and cardiac arrest occurred in four cases during bronchoscopy but the patients were successfully resuscitated. In 10 cases a tracheostomy was done before bronchoscopy and the removal of the foreign body, while in five it was needed after bronchoscopy. Fifteen patients developed late complications such as recurrent pneumonia or atelectasis of the lung. Early diagnosis and adequate treatment are essential to prevent pulmonary and cardiac complications and to avoid radical lung surgery.  (+info)

Diagnostic value of endoscopic ultrasonography-guided fine-needle aspiration cytology of mediastinal masses in patients with intrapulmonary lesions and nondiagnostic bronchoscopy. (6/1686)

Several procedures are available for the cytopathological diagnosis of mediastinal lesions. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic value of endoscopic ultrasonography (EUS)-guided fine-needle aspiration (FNA) in patients with mediastinal mass lesions/lymph node enlargement. All patients had intrapulmonary lesions on chest X ray and/or CT scan, and inconclusive findings by endobronchial forceps biopsy and/or brush cytology. EUS-guided FNA was performed in 16 patients using a modified oblique forward-viewing gastroscope with an electronic multielement curved linear ultrasound transducer. After the region of interest was localized, a 22-gauge Vilmann-Hancke needle was introduced via the 2-mm biopsy channel. The cytological diagnosis of EUS-guided FNA was conclusive for cancer in 9 patients and in the other 7 patients the aspirated samples revealed a benign lesion. In 10 patients the final diagnosis was cancer, thus EUS-guided FNA was diagnostic for malignancy in all but 1 of the lesions (sensitivity 90.0%). In 1 patient epitheloid cell granuloma was detected by cytological examination of the FNA. Following tuberculostatic treatment the lesions disappeared completely on CT scan and EUS. The overall accuracy in this study amounted to 93.7%. From this and other studies discussed, it is assumed that the procedure is an accurate and safe technique to examine nodular lesions suggestive of metastatic lymph node involvement.  (+info)

Forced expiratory wheezes in a patient with dynamic expiratory narrowing of central airways and an oscillating pattern of the flow-volume curve. (7/1686)

Forced expiratory wheezes (FEW) are common and the pathogenesis of this phenomenon might involve fluttering of the airways, but this theory has not been confirmed in patients. We report a case of a patient with FEW and a normal FEV1 that showed a bronchoscopically confirmed collapse of the trachea and main stem bronchi during forced expiration. Superimposed to the flow-volume curve was an oscillating pattern with a frequency that corresponded well with the wheeze generated during forced expiration. The oscillating pattern in the flow-volume curve and the collapse of the major airways supports the theory of wheezes generated by fluttering airways during forced expiration. Although FEW may be found also in healthy subjects, flow limitation is essential for the generation of FEW. The inclusion of a forced expiratory maneuver in the clinical examination might therefore be helpful in guiding the diagnosis towards airways obstruction.  (+info)

A man with a prosthetic ear and multiple pulmonary nodules. (8/1686)

Basal cell carcinoma is generally regarded as a relatively indolent tumor easily controlled with local therapy. When neglected or inadequately treated this tumor can become locally aggressive and in rare circumstances metastasize. This report documents a case of basal cell carcinoma metastatic to the lung that resulted in rapidly progressive respiratory failure and death.  (+info)

Progress in the field of fluorescence bronchoscopy has made it possible to locally diagnose bronchial dysplasia, thought sometimes to be the precancerous lesions of squamous cell carcinoma. We have recently reported the results of extensive studies of dysplasia in bronchial mucosa using white light bronchoscopy combined with fluorescence bronchoscopy.3 However, it proved impossible, even with a BF240 bronchovideoscope, to obtain findings other than swelling and redness in bronchial bifurcations, as previously reported.12,13 Because of the difficulty in diagnosing dysplasia by white light bronchoscopy, we attempted to obtain detailed white light observations of bronchial dysplasia using a direct viewing high magnification bronchovideoscope with the aim of developing a new method of bronchoscopic diagnosis..

A series of surgical simulation exercises has been developed using an animal model to allow trainees to practise basic instrument handling and develop psychomotor skills in bronchoscopy, without risk to patients. A pig model was found to be most suitable. After suitable preparation the model can be used for diagnostic and therapeutic exercises in bronchoscopy, including lavage, biopsy and the removal of various foreign bodies. The model is a safe, inexpensive and convenient means of bronchoscopic training for otolaryngology trainees. For the trained specialist who has to remove bronchial foreign bodies infrequently, the model is a useful way of maintaining skills.

Introduction:. Flexible bronchoscopy has a important role in diagnosing lung cancer. Where tumor is visible on bronchoscopy, it is common practice to carry out the full complement of Forceps biopsies, washings and brushings to enable histological/cytological diagnosis1, 2.. The aim of this retrospective study was to determine whether routine collection of cytology samples (washings & brushings) increase the diagnostic yield as compared to biopsy alone in cases where adequate biopsies (at least five) of bronchoscopically visible tumor were obtained.. Method:. We reviewed consecutive series of 278 bronchoscopies in which biopsies were done during period of 5 years from 2008 to 2012. A total of 148 bronchoscopies met the criteria of bronchoscopically visible tumor and in 145 of these the bronchoscopist felt adequate biopsies were obtained. All these patients also had washings and brushings carried out.. Results:. In the 145 cases where adequate biopsies were obtained, overall diagnostic yield was ...
It is well known that patients undergoing bronchoscopy could be less suffering and the procedures could be carried on more smoothly if the patients have adequate sedation and analgesia. The preferred sedative and analgesic drugs are Midazolam and opioid, like Alfentanil or Morphine, which were titrated according to physicians judgment on patients clinical responsiveness. However, due to the pharmacokinetic characteristic of midazolam while used in intravenous injection (onset time 4-6 minutes, effective time 2-4 hours), the effective onset time may be too slow for repeated injection while patients already suffered from the bronchoscopic procedure. It is also noted that when over-sedation occurred the side effects like apnea/hypopnea, hypoxemia, and hypotension could last from dozen minutes to few hours. Although events mentioned above could be handled properly under experienced medical staff, it is still very difficult to predict the oncoming events as the pharmacokinetic effect is variant ...

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.. ...
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 Pulmonx Zephyr Endobronchial Valve (EBV) is an implantable bronchial valve intended to decrease volume in targeted regions of the lung. It is indicated for the treatment of patients with severe emphysema. The EBV are placed in the diseased region of the lung using bronchoscopy. Bronchoscopy is a way to access the lungs using a small tube with a camera on the end. As the diseased region of the lung shrinks in size, healthier regions may expand and function more efficiently, resulting in improved breathing.. The LIBERATE Study is a clinical trial with two groups. Participants are assigned at random to the Treatment group or to the Control group. The Treatment group will receive the Zephyr Endobronchial Valve (EBV) in combination with optimal medical therapy. The Control group will receive optimal medical therapy alone. For every three participants in the study, two will go into the Treatment group and one will go into the Control group.. It is hypothesized that after placement of ...

We report the case of a 46-year-old woman who attended the respiratory medicine clinic due to dyspnea, MRC grade I-II. Radiological study and fiberoptic bronchoscopy revealed a rounded, hypervasculated, pedunculated mass, located 2cm from the main carina, with an implantation base of less than 1cm in the left main bronchus.. Given the characteristics of the mass and the risk of hemorrhage, we decided to perform resection under rigid fiberoptic bronchoscopy-guidance, to obtain a biopsy and resolution of the occlusion.. The patient was discharged 24h after the procedure without any incidents. A diagnosis of endobronchial leiomyoma was confirmed (Fig. 1), and the patient was followed up with flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy and imaging tests. Nine months after treatment, she remains asymptomatic and free of disease. ...
Background: Electromagnetic navigation-guided bronchoscopy is used for the diagnosis of small peripheral pulmonary nodules that can not be reached by standard flexible bronchoscopy.. Objectives: To evaluate efficacy and safety of electromagnetic navigation-guided bronchoscopy.. Methods: Consecutive 89 patients with peripheral lung lesions and non-diagnostic finding of bronchoscopy with fluoroscopy-guided biopsy were included in the study. Every patient underwent electromagnetic navigation-guided bronchoscopy (superDimension/Bronchus system) under general anesthesia with transbronchial biopsy and brush and/or TBNA biopsy. Patients with unclear findings underwent thoracoscopy.. Results: The lung lesion diameter was 23.1±10.2 mm (5 to 40 mm). Achieved distance to target centre was 8,0±5,7 mm, total time of the procedure was 20,6±9,0 minutes. Definitive diagnosis was malignancy in 75 patients and benign lesion in 14 patients. In 75 patients with malignancy, electromagnetic navigation-guided ...

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 ...

The ability to measure airway dimensions is important for clinicians, interventional bronchoscopists and researchers in order to accurately quantify structural abnormalities and track their changes over time or in response to treatment. Most quantitative airway measurements are based on X-ray computed tomography and, more recently, on multidetector computed tomography. Quantitative bronchoscopic techniques have also been developed, although these are less widely employed. Emerging techniques, including magnetic resonance imaging, endoscopic optical coherence tomography, endobronchial ultrasound and confocal endomicroscopy, provide new research tools with potential clinical applications. An understanding of issues related to the acquisition, processing and analysis of images, and how such issues impact on imaging the tracheobronchial tree, is essential in order to assess measurement accuracy and to make effective use of the newer methods. This article contributes to this understanding by ...

Bronchoscopy (pronounced brahn KAH skoh pee) is a medical procedure that allows a doctor to see inside a persons airways. The airways are called the bronchial tubes or bronchi. In this procedure, the doctor inserts a small tube called a bronchoscope through the nose or mouth. The tip of this tube is lighted, so the doctor can see inside the airways.
A bronchoscopy is a test used to look inside the trachea (windpipe) and bronchi (large airways of the lungs) using an endoscope (a thin, tube-like instrument with a light and lens). A bronchoscopy is also used to perform specialized procedures in the airways.

Last November I went into the hospital for my first bronchoscopy ever. We had found that part of one lung had collapsed, and my doctor hoped that they could flush out the mucus plug with water. They also tried putting a stint in (like the ones used for arteries) to keep the airway open. My experience was pretty awful, although I wouldnt tell anyone else not to do it. All kinds of things can affect the success of a bronchoscopy. The thing I wanted to warn you all about is the fevers that

Diagnosing lung cancer early is essential for effectively treating the disease and optimizing survival. Bronchoscopy is ideal for detecting lung cancer arising from the central airway; however, detecting early and invasive lung cancer and precancerous lesions using WLB remains difficult. According to a previous report, only 29% of CIS and 69% of microinvasive cancer cases are identified by WLB, regardless of the experience level of the bronchoscopist 16. The more advanced AFI bronchoscopy exploits the autofluorescent nature of the bronchial mucosa to detect tiny and subtle superficial lesions. AFI has been shown to increase the yield of diagnostic testing for early lung cancer 17-22; however, its role in detecting lung neoplasia is limited by its specificity, which is actually lower than that of WLB and leads to more false positives 7,21,23,24.. NBI is an optical technique based on the use of narrower blue and green light filters to enhance visualization of the microvascular architecture and ...

METHODS: All bronchoscopies performed for suspected bronchial carcinoma at Papworth Hospital, Cambridge, United Kingdom, over the last 3 years were reviewed retrospectively. Patients with peribronchial disease, as evidenced by submucosal infiltration or extrinsic compression on bronchoscopy, were selected for TBNA. Patients with computed tomography evidence of subcarinal lymphadenopathy were also included. In total we identified 78 patients: 67 with peribronchial disease and 21 with subcarinal lymphadenopathy. All 78 patients underwent TBNA, and in 8 of these TBNA was performed in 2 sites. ...
I am a Thoracic Surgeon. As part of my clinical activities, I perform Bronchoscopies frequently. Many times, these Bronchoscopies are performed on awake patients, making the analgesia and topical anesthesia essential. The quality and extent of the anesthesia produced by topical agents correlates completely with both the adequacy of the examination performed as well as the patients comfort and willingness to undergo a repeat procedures. I have utilized Cetacaine spray as standard and primary agents during these procedures. Ive been able to examine Bronchoscopically nearly a thousand awake patients over many years without using IV sedation whatsoever. IV sedation leaves the patients with diminished sensorium. Not using it and relying only on topical agents is truly beneficial to my patients, and is achieved primarily by Cetacaine.. ...
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 ...

Lung cancer is the most common cause of cancer death worldwide with more than 1.3 million people dying of the disease annually. While antitobacco initiatives in young people are important in preventing lung cancer in the long term, additional measures such as early detection and chemoprevention are needed for individuals already at risk due to past exposure to tobacco smoke. This review highlights the potential use of sputum, exhaled breath and blood biomarkers as well as thoracic CT and autofluorescence bronchoscopy for early detection. The current status of chemoprevention is summarized. The case for using a two-step screening strategy is also discussed.
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 ...
Diagnosis. Doctors use a wide range of diagnostic procedures and tests to diagnose lung cancer. These include :-. 1) Physical examination and medical history of the patient. 2) Chest x ray - is the most common first diagnostic tool to diagnose lung cancer.. 3) CT scan of the chest - A CT scan of the chest may be ordered when X-rays do not show an abnormality or do not yield sufficient information about the extent or location of a tumor.. 4) MRI - MRI (Magnetic resonance imaging) scans may be appropriate when precise detail about a tumors location is required.. 5) PET Scan - PET scanning is a specialized imaging technique that uses short-lived radioactive drugs to produce three-dimensional colored images of those substances in the tissues within the body.. 6) Bronchoscopy - Examination of the airways by bronchoscopy (visualizing the airways through a thin, fiberoptic probe inserted through the nose or mouth) may reveal areas of tumor that can be sampled (biopsied) for diagnosis by a ...

Man, life has been exhausting lately. Its safe to say that 2017 hasnt started off the way I had hoped, nor did 2016 end well either. In December, I was hospitalized with lung pain. We started the admission off like any other stay with IV therapy, chest PT and rest. We also decided to have a bronchoscopy done to see what the lungs looked like and to "flush" them with a antibiotic rinse. I have never had a bronchoscopy, so I was extremely nervous. The idea of "flushing" my lungs was a PTSD trigger and had me thinking Id feel like I was drowning. To be honest, it was one of the easiest procedures Ive had done in a very long time. Easier than a PICC line placement, seriously ...

Looking for online definition of endobronchial biopsy in the Medical Dictionary? endobronchial biopsy explanation free. What is endobronchial biopsy? Meaning of endobronchial biopsy medical term. What does endobronchial biopsy mean?
Endobronchial tumors cannot be visualized on standard two-view chest radiographs. The tumor is often associated with other phenomena, such as postobstructive pneumonia, atelectasis, and adenopathy. Chest CT scans may demonstrate a mass or adenopathy. In the present case, no mediastinal or hilar adenopathies were noted.6,7 Although there is a better chance of visualizing an endobronchial tumor by means of a CT scan than by means of a standard radiograph, endobronchial tumors can remain elusive on CT scans.1,7 Three-dimensional computer reconstruction (eg, virtual bronchoscopy) may be helpful in visualizing elusive tumors before invasive imaging becomes necessary. Virtual bronchoscopy uses CT images and various computer graphic systems to create a computerized graphic image of the endobronchial tree.8,9 The role of virtual bronchoscopy has yet to be fully defined with data to support its use in diagnosing endobronchial lesions.8,9 The preferable method for diagnosing an endobronchial tumor is ...
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 ...

Purpose: Anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) fusion genes represent novel oncogenes for non-small cell lung cancers (NSCLC). Several ALK inhibitors have been developed, and are now being evaluated in ALK-positive NSCLC. The feasibility of detecting ALK fusion genes in samples obtained by endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) was determined. The clinicopathologic characteristics of ALK-positive lung cancer were also analyzed.. Experimental Design: From April 2008 to July 2009, NSCLC cases with hilar/mediastinal lymph node metastases detected by EBUS-TBNA were enrolled. Positive expression of ALK fusion protein was determined using immunohistochemistry, and ALK gene rearrangements were further examined to verify the translocation between ALK and partner genes using fluorescent in situ hybridization and reverse transcription-PCR. Direct sequencing of PCR products was performed to identify ALK fusion variants.. Results: One hundred and nine cases were eligible for ...
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 ...

A 68-year-old patient was scheduled for a thoracotomy. A double-lumen endobronchial tube was requested by the surgeon to facilitate operating conditions. Initial attempts at intubation by conventional methods were unsuccessful. The proximal ends of a
When a proper detailed history, clinical examination, chest X ray and sputum analysis does not yield a definite diagnosis for the cause of chronic cough, bronchoscopy is indicated. We did a descriptive study among 39 patients who underwent bronchoscopic evaluation for chronic cough (more than 4 weeks) with normal chest X ray and without a prior definitive diagnosis. 16 out of 39 patients were diagnosed to have tuberculosis on analysis of the bronchial washings. 6 patients (66.67%) with left upper lobe mucosal inflammation were AFB smear positive. 5 patients ( 31.25 %) with normal bronchoscopy were AFB smear positive.4 out of 5 patients (80 %) with bilateral upper lobe mucosal inflammation were AFB smear positive. Pulmonary tuberculosis can present with chronic non productive cough and normal chest X ray. Bronchoscopy is helpful in establishing the diagnosis. When bronchoscopy shows bilateral or unilateral upper lobe bronchial mucosal inflammation, possibility of tuberculosis is high. ...
An uncontrolled clinical trial was performed in post-intubation tracheal stenosis cases admitted to the NRITLD between 1994 and 1999. Based on bronchoscopic findings, patients with the following inclusion criteria underwent laser therapy: length of stenosis less than 2 cm, tracheal lumen diameter more than 5 mm and lesions with granulation tissue type. Others candidated for surgery. Laser therapy was carried out by fiberoptic bronchoscopy under local anesthesia. For those patients with tracheal lumen diameter between 5 and 10 mm rigid bronchoscopy was performed under general anesthesia. ...
Bronchoscopy is an examination of the inside of the lung, including the trachea and bronchi. This procedure was traditionally performed with a patient sedated - however technological advances now permit performance of this procedure with a patient awake.Bronchoscopy may be necessary for a number of reasons including:
Bronchoscopy and laryngoscopy are two procedures done to look at the air passages and the lungs. Your childs doctor will pass a small, lighted tube into the air passages after your child is asleep. A bronchoscopy is done to look at the windpipe and lower air passages. A laryngoscopy is done to look at the vocal cords and the back of the throat.

A 50-year-old woman presented 2-month cough and mild symptoms of hemoptysis. On routine chest radiograph of regular health examination, the patient was found to have a mass measuring around 3.5 cm in greatest diameterin right upper lung field (Figure 1A). Subsequent bronchoscopic brushing cytology confirmed the mass to be malignant. 7 days after admission, the patient underwent lobectomy and radical lymph node dissection through a standard right posterolateral thoracotomy. The chest radiograph on postoperative day 1 and 2 showed adequate lung expansion with no obvious abnormality. 5 days after operation, the patient presented fever and mild dyspnea. Follow-up chest radiograph showed a wedge-shaped opacity of large area in the middle lung field (Figure 1B). Bedside bronchoscopy showed tight orifice of right middle lobe. CT scan showed collapse and hemorrhagic consolidation in right middle lobe (Figure 2). Under the impression of torsion, the patient underwent explorative thoracotomy. Under direct ...

Choriocarcinoma usually affects premenopausal women. A postmenopausal choriocarcinoma is a rare event and there are few cases reported in the literature. In our case, the tumor clinically was manifested 20 years after the last pregnancy. The biological mechanism behind the long latent period for the gestational choriocarcinoma to develop in a postmenopausal woman has not been described. The gestational choriocarcinoma arises within the uterine cavity, however our case was presented with pulmonary metastatic involvement without evidence of uterine disease (i.e. spontaneous regression of the primary tumor). This behavior is known as the "burn-out" phenomenon. It has been described mainly in melanoma, as well as in other tumors including the germ cell tumors. A molecular immunological mechanism seems to be involved in this process. The tumor growth and spread cause repetitive exposures of the T-lymphocytes to the primary tumor antigens. The T-cells tend to eliminate the primary lesion, while the ...
Results Fifty-four patients were reviewed, 75.9% female, with a mean age of 63.56±15.40 years. Most patients came referred from Rheumatology (74.1%), since the debut of the EPID was after the diagnosis of the rheumatic disease in 50% of cases (33% simultaneous, and only 13% prior). The non specific interstitial pneumonia was the most frequent ILD (51.9%), followed by the usual interstitial pneumonia (UIP, 33.3%). The mean duration of the ILD was 5.49±5.31 years. ILD was associated, in order, to Systemic Sclerosis (24.2%), RA (20.4%), Sjögren (16.7%) and Antisynthetase syndrome (13%). The antibodies more frequently found were the ANA (33.3%), followed by anti-Ro (31.5%), RF (29.6%) and anti-Scl70 (18.5%). As for the PFTs, up to 55.6% of the patients showed a normal pattern, and only 29.6% a restrictive pattern. 22.2% of the patients showed desaturation when performing the walking test. Bronchoscopy was performed in 29 patients, while transbronchial biopsy and surgical biopsy were needed in 22 ...
Tracheobronchial injuries are life threatening and often are not recognized in the acute setting.1 The right main bronchus is most frequently affected.1 Commonly observed radiologic findings are pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, subcutaneous emphysema, clavicle fracture, rib fractures, pulmonary contusion, widened mediastinum, and hemothorax.2 Clinical features include sternal tenderness, dyspnea, hemoptysis and Hamman sign (a crunching, rasping sound heard over the precordium, synchronous with the heartbeat, produced by the heart beating against air-filled tissues in the mediastinum). Bronchoscopy is the gold standard for diagnosis.3 ...
We report the case of a 55-year-old woman, former smoker since September 2012 (18 pack-years), with a history of allergic rhinoconjunctivitis and bronchial asthma. No infiltrates were observed in a chest X-ray performed in 2012. Skin prick tests showed sensitization to cat dander and grass and olive pollen.. She was admitted in 2014 for an acute episode of dyspnea, breath sounds, and non-productive cough without fever. Chest X-ray revealed an alveolointersticial pattern predominantly in the lung bases. Chest computed tomography showed bilateral patchy ground glass infiltrates. Bronchoscopy was performed with transbronchial biopsy and bronchoalveolar lavage: neutrophils: 11%; eosinophils: 85.9%; lymphocytes: 0.6%. Biopsy showed a histological pattern of pulmonary eosinophilia suggestive of chronic eosinophilic pneumonia (CEP), with a focal pattern typical of organizing pneumonia. Lung function tests highlighted a restrictive pattern with carbon monoxide diffusion changes: FVC 1830 - 59%; FEV1 ...
