BACKGROUND: Conventional transbronchial needle aspiration (c-TBNA) and endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) are both valuable diagnostic techniques for the diagnosis of hilar/mediastinal lesions. Although a superiority of EBUS-TBNA over c-TBNA may be expected, evidence-based data on a direct comparison between these 2 procedures are still lacking. OBJECTIVES: We aimed to test the superiority of EBUS-TBNA over c-TBNA in a randomized trial and to evaluate the cost-effectiveness profile of a staged strategy, including c-TBNA as initial test followed by EBUS-TBNA, in case of inconclusive results at rapid on-site evaluation...

BACKGROUND: Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a well-established first-line invasive modality for mediastinal lymph node staging in lung cancer patients and in the diagnostic workup of patients with mediastinal adenopathy. With the current 21- and 22-gauge (G) EBUS-TBNA needles, the procedure can be limited by the degree of flexibility in the needle and the size of the lumen in tissue acquisition. OBJECTIVE: We report our initial experience with a first-generation flexible 19-G EBUS-TBNA (Flex 19G; Olympus Respiratory America, Redmond, WA, USA) needle with regards to efficacy and safety...

Inborn errors of metabolism (IEM) are rare individually, but taken together, they affect 1 in 1,000 people. Most of the disease becomes apparent at the pediatric age; however, with the identification of late-onset forms, and with improved survival, several of these conditions may be found in adults of all ages. While the lung is not typically a primary site of clinical disease in patients with IEM, in some of them it can be a significantly affected organ with associated severe respiratory complications. Lung involvement can be a late- onset feature of a complex multisystemic disease, but sometimes it can also be the only manifestation of underlying IEM...

BACKGROUND: Combination therapy with the phosphodiesterase type 5 inhibitors (PDE-5i) sildenafil or tadalafil and the endothelin receptor antagonists (ERA) bosentan, ambrisentan, or macitentan may cause mutual pharmacokinetic interactions in patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to analyze plasma drug concentrations in PAH patients receiving different combination treatments. METHODS: PAH patients receiving a stable combination treatment with ERA and PDE-5i with targeted dosage for at least 1 month were routinely assessed, including clinical parameters and plasma drug concentrations...

BACKGROUND: Knowledge of pleural malignancy can lead to immediate pleurodesis during thoracoscopy. However, the accuracy of pleural frozen sections is largely unknown. OBJECTIVES: To investigate the accuracy of frozen sections in pleural tumor pathology. METHODS: A total of 156 frozen pleural sections performed with the question of malignancy were retrospectively reviewed. The original frozen sections were compared to the permanent section slides which were considered as the gold standard...

BACKGROUND: Comorbidities are very common in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), contributing to the overall severity of the disease. The relative prevalence of comorbidities in COPD caused by biomass smoke (B-COPD), compared with COPD related to tobacco (T-COPD), is not well known. OBJECTIVES: To establish if both types of COPD are associated with a different risk for several major comorbidities. METHOD: The prevalence of comorbidities was compared in 863 subjects with B-COPD (n = 179, 20...

BACKGROUND: The role of combinations of tumor markers such as carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), carbohydrate antigens (CA) 125, 15-3, and 19-9, and CYFRA 21-1 (a fragment of cytokeratin 19) in diagnosing malignant pleural effusion (MPE) has not been clearly established. OBJECTIVES: This meta-analysis was performed to establish the overall diagnostic accuracies of combinations of these pleural fluid tumor markers for MPE. METHODS: The PubMed, Ovid, Embase, Web of Science, and Cochrane bibliographic databases were searched...

BACKGROUND: The prevalence of undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) during preoperative evaluation and the best method to screen OSA and its association with postoperative complications remain unclear. OBJECTIVES: To determine the prevalence of undiagnosed OSA in preoperative Indian patients undergoing noncardiac surgery, to compare the diagnostic accuracy of the STOP-BANG questionnaire to a preoperative level III sleep study, and to assess the association of OSA with postoperative complications...

Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is a specific form of chronic, progressive fibrosing interstitial pneumonia of unknown causes. Current diagnostic criteria are based on radiological, clinical, and histopathological features but, unfortunately, still many patients remain undiagnosed. Two currently approved therapies, pirfenidone and nintedanib, slow down disease progression but failed to block or revert it. On the other hand, many of the therapeutic agents tested in several clinical trials have not given satisfactory answers, probably due to the pathological heterogeneity of the disease...

BACKGROUND: In contrast to community-acquired pneumonia (CAP), no specific severity assessment tools have been developed for healthcare-associated pneumonia (HCAP) in clinical practice. OBJECTIVES: In this review, we assessed the clinical significance of severity assessment tools for HCAP. METHODS: We identified related articles from the PubMed database. The eligibility criteria were original research articles evaluating severity scoring tools and reporting the outcomes of mortality in patients with HCAP...

BACKGROUND: The use of self-expandable metallic stents (SEMS) in benign airway disease was the object of a boxed warning from the United States Food and Drug Administration in 2005 due to the risk of stent-related complications and difficulties associated with their removal. Third-generation fully covered SEMS have been commercialized since this warning and theoretically should not present the same difficulties associated with removal as they cannot become embedded in the airway mucosa...
