Mucous membrane pemphigoid (MMP) is a rare variant of the skin disease pemphigoid, which predominantly involves the mucous membranes. This rare autoimmune disease that infrequently affects the respiratory tract is characterized by subepithelial blister formation that may result in scarring. Immunopathologic examination of mucous membranes reveals the deposition of immunoglobulins and complement within the subepithelial basement membrane. We describe a patient with undiagnosed MMP, with a near-fatal presentation of central airway obstruction causing acute respiratory distress...

Most carcinomas of nonpulmonary sites that metastasize to the lung do so within 5 years of diagnosis. Although examples of late metastasis to the lung after prolonged disease-free intervals (>5 y) have been reported sporadically, this phenomenon has not been systematically analyzed. The aim of this study was to describe the clinical and pathologic features of metastases to the lung from carcinomas of nonpulmonary origin after prolonged disease-free intervals. We searched our pathology archives to identify lung biopsies/resections containing metastases from carcinomas of nonpulmonary origin...

BACKGROUND: Procedural learning requires both didactic knowledge and motor skills. Optimal teaching styles and techniques remain to be defined for pulmonary procedural learning. We investigated the preferences of learners at 2 different points in a pulmonary career; as pulmonary fellows and as clinical practitioners. METHODS: A perception survey was conducted among pulmonary fellows and practitioners from multiple institutions throughout the United States. Fellows and practitioners were immediately surveyed on procedural learning factors after completing a procedural learning course using low/high-fidelity and/or cadaver simulators...

Mediastinitis is a rare complication of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA). Recent reports of infectious complications following EBUS-TBNA involved oropharyngeal bacteria. Here, we report 2 unusual cases of post-EBUS-TBNA mediastinitis involving Streptococcus pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which were likely the result of direct inoculation of the organisms at the time of transbronchial needle aspiration. The first case was successfully treated with computed tomography-guided drainage and antibiotics, whereas the second case had >50% distal tracheal obstruction and near total occlusion of the left main stem bronchus, requiring rigid bronchoscopy, stent placement, debulking, and antibiotics...

BACKGROUND: Linear endobronchial ultrasound transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) represents a pivotal innovation in interventional pulmonology; determining the best approach to guarantee systematic and efficient training is expected to become a main issue in the forthcoming years. Virtual reality simulators have been proposed as potential EBUS-TBNA training instruments, to avoid unskilled beginners practicing directly in real-life settings. A validated and perfected simulation program could be used before allowing beginners to practice on patients...

BACKGROUND: Flexible bronchoscopy is a frequently used procedure for the diagnosis and treatment of various lung disorders. As there is no standardized guideline on the insertion of the bronchoscope, and few studies are available on the subject, we conducted a prospective randomized controlled trial to compare nasal and oral insertion. MATERIALS AND METHODS: In total, 66 patients who underwent bronchoscopy without sedation were randomly assigned to either oral or nasal insertion...

BACKGROUND: The balloon-expanding stents are widely available but rarely described for use within the tracheobronchial tree. This report describes our experience with these stents in airway stenosis particularly as a lobar salvage therapy. METHODS: This was a retrospective review of all records in which the balloon-expanding stents were used at a tertiary medical center. Ages, sex, location of stenosis, etiology of stenosis, stent size, duration of stent placement and associated interventions for airway stenosis were recorded...

The portacath is commonly used in the treatment of oncology patients. Although common long-term complications of these devices, such as infection and thrombosis, have been widely reported, venous-airway fistula due to port placement is an extremely rare and poorly understood complication. We report a case of a 56-year-old female with pancreatic adenocarcinoma whose portacath was complicated by the development of an azygo-bronchial fistula with a concomitant aspergilloma. Herein is the first reported case of successful venous-airway fistula closure obtained through silicone stenting...

#12
Rimoun Hakim, Bruce Sabath, Tugba Kaplan, Rex Yung
Narrow band imaging (NBI) has been widely applied for the evaluation of numerous disease conditions that present with increased vascularity of the mucosa, most often malignancies. It is increasingly being used in benign conditions as well. We present the first case in which NBI was used, rather, to detect areas of bronchial hypovascularity due to its ability to increase the visual contrast between normal and hypovascular mucosa. Endobronchial biopsy of these nodules led to the diagnosis of sarcoidosis. Had conventional white light alone been utilized, the diagnosis would likely have been missed because not only were these lesions difficult to visualize under white light but transbronchial lung biopsy and transbronchial needle aspiration were unremarkable...

Fluoroscopy-guided transbronchial forceps biopsy has a low diagnostic yield in patients with radiographic suspicion of interstitial lung disease. Cryobiopsy has a higher diagnostic yield likely due to preserved lung architecture and larger biopsies; however, there is an increased risk of major airway bleeding and pneumothorax. Simultaneous use of endobronchial balloon blocker allows for containment of bleeding after cryobiopsy to the affected lobe. In the current article we describe use of radial ultrasound in identification of a target lung parenchyma without a major blood vessel adjacent to distal bronchi...
