The mechanisms of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF), a rare, devastating disease with a median survival of 3-5 years, are not fully understood. Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a frequent comorbidity encountered in IPF. Hypothetically, GERD-associated microaspiration may lead to persistent inflammation impairing lung infrastructure, thereby possibly accelerating the progression of IPF. IPF may increase intrathoracic pressure, which can aggravate GERD and vice versa. On the basis of the possible beneficial effects of antireflux or antacid therapy on lung function, acute exacerbation, and survival, the recent international IPF guideline recommends antacid therapies for patients with IPF, regardless of symptomatic GERD...

BACKGROUND: After undergoing a procedure of pulmonary endarterectomy (PEA), patients with chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) may still experience reduced exercise capacity. Data on effects of exercise training in these patients are scant. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effectiveness of exercise training after PEA for CTEPH and if the presence of "residual pulmonary hypertension" may affect the outcome. METHODS: Retrospective data analysis of CTEPH patients undergoing inpatient exercise training after PEA...

BACKGROUND: Congenital cardiovascular malformations (CCVM) may cause infrequently airway pathologies (AP) in children and are of prognostic and therapeutic relevance. While computed tomography (CT) is considered first-line imaging modality in many centres, we started using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) more and more in the last years to detect CCVM and AP to avoid radiation in this patient group. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this retrospective study was to determine and to compare the diagnostic accuracy of CT and MRI when used to detect CCVM and/or AP...

BACKGROUND: Radial-probe endobronchial ultrasound (RP-EBUS) is predominantly used clinically for the localisation of peripheral pulmonary lesions prior to biopsy. However, the RP-EBUS image itself contains information that can characterise the aetiology of lesions. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to show the utility of RP-EBUS image analysis using unconstrained regions of interest (ROIs) that utilise more image information and eliminate ROI selection bias...

BACKGROUND: While nontuberculous mycobacterial (NTM) pleuritis rarely complicates pulmonary NTM infection, high mortality has been reported in case reports and small studies. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to clarify the clinical features and treatment outcomes of pulmonary NTM infection cases accompanied by NTM pleuritis. METHODS: Medical records of 1,044 patients with pulmonary NTM disease were retrospectively reviewed to select patients complicated by NTM-proven pleuritis...

BACKGROUND: Changes in pulmonary hemodynamics and cardiac function in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) traveling to altitude have not been assessed despite an increasing prevalence of the disease. OBJECTIVES: We hypothesized that pulmonary artery pressure (PAP) significantly increases and cardiac function deteriorates during exposure to hypobaric hypoxia as encountered by traveling to moderate altitude or air flight. METHODS: A total of 37 patients (17 female; median age [quartiles] 66 years [60; 69] with COPD GOLD grade 2-3 [FEV1 57% predicted (49; 71)]) living < 800 m underwent echocardiography in Zurich (490 m) and after 1 night at Davos Jakobshorn (2,590 m) in a randomized order of allocation...

BACKGROUND: Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) has been linked to tumorigenesis and tumor progression. OBJECTIVES: The Sleep Apnea in Lung Cancer (SAIL) study (NCT02764866) was designed to determine the prevalence of OSA in patients with lung cancer. METHODS: Cross-sectional study including consecutive patients with newly diagnosed lung cancer. All patients were offered home sleep apnea testing (HSAT) and administered a sleep-specific questionnaire prior to initiating oncologic treatment...

BACKGROUND: Predictions that overestimate post-lobectomy lung function are more likely than underestimates to lead to lobectomy. Studies of post-lobectomy lung function have included only surgical patients, so overestimates are overrepresented. This selection bias has led to incorrect estimates of prediction bias, which has led to inaccurate threshold values for determining lobectomy eligibility. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to demonstrate and adjust for this selection bias in order to arrive at correct estimates of prediction bias, the 95% limits of agreement, and adjusted threshold values for determining when exercise testing is warranted...

BACKGROUND: Diagnosing centrally located lung tumors without endobronchial abnormalities and not located near the major airways is a diagnostic challenge. Tumors near or adjacent to the esophagus can be aspirated and detected with esophageal ultrasound (EUS) using gastrointestinal endoscopes. OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility and diagnostic yield of endoscopic ultrasound with bronchoscope-guided fine needle aspiration (EUS-B-FNA) in paraesophageally located lung tumors and its added value to bronchoscopy and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)...

BACKGROUND: While fixed dose combinations (FDCs) of long-acting beta 2-agonists (LABAs) and long-acting muscarinic antagonists (LAMAs) are increasingly tested on their efficacy in improving lung function, their effectiveness on Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) such as Health Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) and Health Status (HS) deserve more attention. OBJECTIVES: To review current available evidence about the treatment effect of fixed LABA/LAMA FDCs on HRQoL. METHODS: A systematic literature search for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) about the impact of LABA/LAMA FDCs versus placebo, LABA or LAMA or LABA/ICS on HRQoL in Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients has been performed...

BACKGROUND: Hydrogen-oxygen mixture (H2-O2) may reduce airway resistance in patients with acute severe tracheal stenosis, yet data supporting the clinical use of H2-O2 are insufficient. OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the efficacy and safety of breathing H2-O2 in acute severe tracheal stenosis. METHODS: Thirty-five consecutive patients with severe acute tracheal stenosis were recruited in this prospective self-control study. Air, H2-O2 and O2 inhalation was given in 4 consecutive breathing steps: air for 15 min, H2-O2 (6 L per min, H2:O2 = 2: 1) for 15 min, oxygen (3 L per min) for 15 min, and H2-O2 for 120 min...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic valve therapy leads to an improvement of lung function, exercise tolerance, and quality of life in a selected cohort of patients with advanced emphysema. So far, only few data exist on the long-term outcome. OBJECTIVES: This analysis evaluated the impact of valve therapy on the survival of emphysema patients. METHODS: Survival rates of emphysema patients who underwent valve therapy were assessed according to their radiological outcome following valve placement...

RATIONALE: Virtual bronchoscopic navigation (VBN) guidance to peripheral pulmonary lesions is often limited by insufficient segmentation of the peripheral airways. OBJECTIVES: To test the effect of applying positive airway pressure (PAP) during CT acquisition to improve segmentation, particularly at end-expiration. METHODS: CT acquisitions in inspiration and expiration with 4 PAP protocols were recorded prospectively and compared to baseline inspiratory acquisitions in 20 patients...

BACKGROUND: Indwelling pleural catheters (IPC) offer an alternative to talc pleurodesis in recurrent effusion, especially in patients wishing to avoid hospitalization. Two randomized trials have demonstrated reduced time in hospital using IPCs versus talc pleurodesis in malignant pleural effusion (MPE). However, the impact of IPCs on hospital services and patients has not been well studied. OBJECTIVES: To analyze long-term outcomes of IPCs and understand the hospital burden in terms of requirement for hospital visits and contacts with healthcare, while the IPC was in situ...
