BACKGROUND: Pleural effusions may be aspirated manually or via vacuum during thoracentesis. This study compares the safety, pain level, and time involved in these techniques. METHODS: We randomized 100 patients receiving ultrasound-guided unilateral thoracentesis in an academic medical center from December 2015 through September 2017 to either vacuum or manual drainage. Without using pleural manometry, the effusion was drained completely or until the development of refractory symptoms...

Chronic pleural infection is characterized by thickened pleura and nonexpandable lung often requiring definitive surgical intervention, such as decortication and/or pleural obliteration procedures. Such procedures are associated with significant morbidity and require proper patient selection for a successful outcome. We report a cohort of 11 patients with pleural space infection and a nonexpandable lung treated with tunneled pleural catheters (TPCs). Following placement, hospital discharge and TPC removal occurred after a median of 5 and 36 days, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Little data exists regarding the performance of elastography in EBUS-TBNA. The aim of the study was to evaluate the elastography score proposed and previously published by Izumo, in particular its capacity to perfectly identify benign lymph node, and to discriminate malignant ones. METHODS: This study included patients undergoing EBUS-TBNA for mediastinal lymph nodes (LN). Before LN needle aspiration, an elastography was performed which allowed a color elastogram to be superimposed on the ultrasound image...

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to explore elastography features and its ability to distinguish between benign and malignant lymph nodes by comparing the results with an anatomopathologic examination used as gold standard. METHODS: Patients were randomized in 2 groups [endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) and EBUS-elastography]. Echographic characteristics of the lymph nodes were collected in both categories. In the EBUS-elastography group, elastographic data were also determined...

BACKGROUND: Electromagnetic navigation (EMN) has improved bronchoscopic access to peripheral pulmonary nodules. A novel EMN system utilizing novel tip-tracked instruments for endobronchial [electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB)] as well as transthoracic lung biopsy [electromagnetic-guided transthoracic needle aspiration (EMTTNA)] has become available. The system provides real-time feedback as well as the ability to biopsy lesions outside of the airway. These advances have the potential to improve diagnostic yield over previous EMN systems...

An understanding of thoracic computed tomographic anatomy is vital for procedural planning in bronchoscopy. When reviewing computed tomographic images in preparation for endobronchial ultrasound-directed staging for lung cancer, the presence of fluid in pericardial recesses can often be mistaken for mediastinal lymphadenopathy, potentially causing pitfalls in radiologic interpretation. We describe 2 cases of a high-riding superior aortic recess extending into right paratracheal lymph node station mimicking paratracheal lymphadenopathy...

BACKGROUND: Bronchial stenosis is a significant source of morbidity among lung transplant recipients, with etiologies including infection and ischemia of the airways. Current management with balloon bronchoplasty and stents is imperfect and a subset of patients requires multiple procedures to maintain airway patency. Mitomycin C (MMC) has been utilized for its antifibrotic properties in nonmalignant tracheobronchial stenosis but its application is not well studied in post-lung transplant stenosis...

BACKGROUND: Performance of endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) for staging the radiologically normal mediastinum has been reported with inconsistent findings. We assessed the sensitivity of systematic staging using EBUS-TBNA for detection of radiologically occult mediastinal metastases in cN0/N1 lung cancer. METHODS: Studies evaluating EBUS-TBNA for systematic mediastinal staging in cN0/N1 lung cancer were identified by systematic review...

BACKGROUND: Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy (ENB) has been widely adopted as a guidance technique for biopsy of peripheral lung nodules. However, ENB is limited by the lack of real-time confirmation of the biopsy devices. Intraprocedural cone-beam computed tomography (CBCT) imaging can be utilized to assess or confirm the location of biopsy devices. The aim of this study is to determine the safety and diagnostic yield (DY) of image fusion of intraprocedural CBCT data with live fluoroscopy (augmented fluoroscopy) during ENB-guided biopsy of peripheral lung nodules...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopic management of tracheal stenosis may be challenging, especially in the case of complex stenosis placed near the vocal folds, and needing stent placement. Herein, we evaluated the utility of the three-dimensional (3D) airway model for procedural planning in a consecutive series of patients with complex airway stenosis and scheduled for endoscopic treatment. METHODS: This strategy was applied to 7 consecutive patients with tracheal stenosis unfit for surgery...
