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)

Convex probe endobronchial ultrasound is a minimally invasive technique used for performing real-time transbronchial needle aspiration of enlarged hilar and mediastinal lymph nodes and could be used for diagnosing proximal peribronchial lesions. Although computed tomography, magnetic resonant imaging, and positron emission tomography/computed tomography have relatively high sensitivity for mediastinal evaluation, pathology is the gold standard. This study compared between Echo Tip Ultra HD-EBUS 22G needle and Echo Tip ProCore HD-EBUS 22G needle in diagnosis of mediastinal lesions using convex probe endobronchial ultrasound. Twenty-four patients with mediastinal lesions were included. Convex probe endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration using both Echo Tip Ultra HD 22G and Echo Tip ProCore HD 22G needles was done to all patients with no peripheral lymph node enlargement. CP-EBUS TBNA had diagnostic accuracy 50%, sensitivity 47.6%, and specificity 100% in diagnosis of mediastinal
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.. In gastrointestinal endoscopy, high magnification endoscopy has been developed for observing and analysing epithelial microstructures. Moreover, there have been several recent reports on the ...

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 ...

Fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FOB) is a useful diagnosis tool in low-burden countries for patients with suspected pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) who are smear-negative or sputum-scarce. This study sought to determine the accuracy of the Xpert® MTB/RIF (XP) assay using FOB samples. We retrospectively reviewed clinical, radiological, and microbiological characteristics of 175 TB-suspected patients requiring diagnostic FOB (bronchial aspirate or bronchoalveolar lavage) with XP assay. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and smear microscopy (SM) performances were first compared to culture, then to the final diagnosis, established based on clinical or radiological evolution when cultures were negative. Of the total 162 included patients, 30 (18.5%) had a final diagnosis of pulmonary TB, with positive cultures reported in 23. As compared to culture, sensitivity and specificity values were 80.0% and 98.6% for the XP assay, and 25.0% and 95.8% for SM, respectively. As compared to final diagnosis, the corresponding
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. ...

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 ...
Objective To evaluate the efficacy of combined thermoablation and cryoablation treatment of lymph nodes fistula type of central airway tracheo-bronchial tuberculosis(TBTB)under flexible bronchoscopy(referred to as bronchoscopy).Methods A total of 78 patients with TBTB were enrolled in the Anhui Provincial Chest Hospital from January 2013 to January 2017.After approval by the Ethics Committee,39 patients in the control group were treated with systemic anti-tuberculosis treatment and bronchoscopy which biopsy forceps were repeatedly cleaned and the isoniazid was injected through the catheter at the lesion.The observation group were treated with systemic anti-tuberculosis treatment and bronchoscopy which combined with cryo-thermo ablation and the isoniazid was injected through the catheter at the lesion.All of them were ended up with endoscopic treatment after stable lesions and followed up for 1 year.The average number of treatments was calculated,and the clinical symptoms and bronchoscopy findings were

Care guide for Flexible Bronchoscopy (Ambulatory Care). Includes: possible causes, signs and symptoms, standard treatment options and means of care and support.
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.

Background: Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB) procedures allow physicians to access peripheral lung lesions beyond the reach of conventional bronchoscopy. However, published research is primarily limited to small, single-center studies using previous-generation ENB software. The impact of user experience, patient factors, and lesion/procedural characteristics remains largely unexplored in a large, multicenter study. Methods/Design: NAVIGATE (Clinical Evaluation of superDimensionTM Navigation System for Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy) is a prospective, multicenter, global, cohort study. The study aims to enroll up to 2,500 consecutive subjects presenting for evaluation of lung lesions utilizing the ENB procedure at up to 75 clinical sites in the United States, Europe, and Asia. Subjects will be assessed at baseline, at the time of procedure, and at 1, 12, and 24 months post-procedure. The pre-test probability of malignancy will be determined for peripheral lung nodules. ...
Introduction:Aspiration of foreign bodies is an emergency condition in children and may result in death, especially in children under 3 years of age. Therefore, diagnosis and treatment must be made rapidly.Objective:This study sought to summarize our experience with endoscope-assisted rigid bronchoscopy (RB) in the diagnosis and treatment of pediatric tracheobronchial foreign body emergencies to reduce complications and mortality.Methods:This was a retrospective cross-sectional study. The medical records of 337 children diagnosed with clinically suspected airway foreign body aspiration in the pediatric emergency department were analyzed retrospectively. The patients were divided into 2 groups with endoscopy used during RB in group 1 whereas group 2 was RB only. The surgeons who performed the bronchoscopies completed a survey on the advantages/disadvantages of these 2 procedures.Results:All of the patients had a positive history of suspected foreign body aspiration and foreign bodies were ...

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 ...
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, ...

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 ...

BACKGROUND: Electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB) is guided bronchoscopy to pulmonary nodules (PN) that relies on a preprocedural chest CT to create a three-dimensional (3D) virtual airway map. The CT is traditionally done at a full inspiratory breath hold (INSP), but the procedure is performed while the patient tidal breaths, when lung volumes are closer to functional residual capacity. Movement of a PN from INSP to expiration (EXP) has been shown to average 17.6 mm. Therefore, the hypothesis of this study is that preprocedural virtual maps built off a CT closer to physiological lung volumes during bronchoscopy may better represent the actual 3D location of a PN ...

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. ...
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, ...

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.

Objective: Benign airway obstruction is considered as curable by therapeutic bronchoscopic methods. Compared to surgical therapies, these methods are comfortable and safe for the patients. Methods: We used therapeutic bronchoscopic methods (laser and stenotic silicon stent) in seven patients who were admitted to our department due to tracheal stenosis, which developed after tracheostomy and endotracheal intubation. In 4 patients after vaporization of membranous stricture by YAP-laser, stenotic stent was implanted mechanically and/or by means of balloon dilatation. The membranous stricture area was coagulated by YAP-laser in 3 other cases and anatomic airway diameter was maintained mechanically and by balloon dilatation. Results and Conclusion: In the follow up period, we applied a stenotic silicone stent after second laser resection to patients, who developed restenosis. Patients who had stenotic silicon stenting had no problem related with the stent in the follow up period were considered as ...

In non-neuronal contexts, ACh (acetylcholine) is thought to be involved in the regulation of vital cell functions, such as proliferation, differentiation, apoptosis and cell-cell interaction. In airways, most cells express the non-neuronal cholinergic system, each containing a specific set of components required for synthesis, signal transduction and ACh hydrolysis. The aim of the present study was determine the expression of cholinergic system components in bronchial aspirates from control subjects and patients with lung cancer. We conducted an analysis of cholinergic components in the stored soluble and cellular fraction of bronchial aspirates from non-cancerous patients and patients diagnosed with lung cancer. The results show that the fluid secreted by human lung cells contains enough AChE (acetylcholinesterase) activity to control ACh levels. Thus these findings demonstrate that: (i) AChE activity is significantly lower in aspirates from squamous cell carcinomas; (ii) the molecular ...
