BACKGROUND: Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) presents a minimally invasive way to evaluate abnormal mediastinal and hilar adenopathy. Although EBUS has been established as an effective modality to diagnose lung cancer, its sensitivity for the diagnosis of lymphoma has been demonstrated to be lower. Because of these lower yields uncertainty persists about the ability of EBUS-TBNA to reliably diagnose lymphoma and questions remain regarding the utility of EBUS-TBNA as a first-line biopsy modality for patients suspected of having lymphoma...

BACKGROUND: Lung ultrasound has been suggested as an alternative to routine chest radiography (CXR) to screen for pneumothorax after transbronchial lung biopsy. In post-lung transplant patients, who may have altered anatomy and pleural adhesions, the validity of lung ultrasound to screen for postbiopsy pneumothoraces has not been investigated. METHODS: Lung ultrasound using an ultraportable handheld device was performed in a standardized manner 2-hour after biopsy in post-lung transplant patients...

BACKGROUND: Transbronchial lung biopsy (TBLB) is an important bronchoscopic procedure used in the diagnosis of sarcoidosis. Only a few studies have evaluated determinants associated with successful diagnostic yield of TBLB. Herein, we evaluate the factors predicting successful yield of TBLB in subjects with sarcoidosis. METHODS: Consecutive subjects with a clinical suspicion of sarcoidosis who underwent TBLB were enrolled. We evaluated the association between symptoms, spirometric lung function, radiologic stage of sarcoidosis, number of specimens, presence of floating biopsies, number of alveoli, and successful diagnostic yield (presence of granuloma) on TBLB...

A bronchopleural fistula (BPF) is a communication between the pleural space and the bronchial tree. BPFs are challenging to diagnose and are associated with a high morbidity and mortality. Sequential balloon occlusion is commonly used for localization of a BPF. We describe our experience with 4 cases of successful localization of the BPF by instillation of methylene blue into the pleural space through a pigtail catheter, with simultaneous bronchoscopic visualization of dye in the tracheobronchial tree. Two patients were treated with endobronchial valves and 3 had a surgical thoracic muscle flap placed...

We report a case of metastatic pulmonary calcification in a patient with chronic renal failure on hemodialysis and secondary hyperparathyroidism. The diagnosis was made by using a probe-based confocal endomicroscopy which showed specific structures in the lung tissue and was proven by a transbronchial lung biopsy. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first reported case of the confocal endomicroscopy findings in a patient with metastatic pulmonary calcification.

BACKGROUND: Airway stents are traditionally used in central airway obstructions to maintain airway patency. Historically, distal bronchial stenting within lobar and segmental bronchi has not been amenable to stenting. In addition, there are questionable benefits to stenting small airways. The Atrium iCast stent is a polytetrafluoroethylene covered stainless steel balloon deployed stent which can be deployed through a flexible bronchoscope under direct visualization. The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility, complications, and long-term impact of using this stent in patients with lobar bronchial stenosis either secondary to malignancy or benign etiologies...

A 59-year-old man developed massive hemoptysis, 1 month after undergoing cryoablation procedure for atrial fibrillation. He underwent emergent bronchoscopy that revealed massive, active bleeding with clots requiring repeated suctioning, epinephrine, and cold saline injection. The source of bleeding was identified in a follow-up bronchoscopy performed few days later-a 2×3 cm area of ulceration of the left main stem bronchus which was missed in the initial bronchoscopy owing to blood obscuring the field of vision...

The use of venovenous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO) has traditionally been limited to a narrow set of clinical circumstances, such as acute hypoxic respiratory failure, submassive pulmonary embolism, and cardiopulmonary collapse. Within the pediatric population, there have been cases of VV-ECMO in the context of extrinsic airway compression by a mediastinal mass, typically in the setting of either a lymphoma or germ cell tumors. However, the use of VV-ECMO for adults with extrinsic airway compression is comparatively limited...

This study was conducted with the aim of evaluating a 10-year experience in the Pulmonology Department of a cancer center for percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy through transnasal route (TN-PEG) in patients with head and neck cancer whose oral access is precluded. This study was a retrospective analysis of 40 consecutive head and neck cancer patients referred for PEG placement, between 2005 and 2014, using a transnasal route because of the impossibility of intubation through the oral cavity. Demographics, outcome of TN-PEG procedure, indications for bronchoscopic approach (prophylactic/palliative), clinical need for bronchoscopy (trismus, oropharyngeal obstruction), location of cancer, complications, and overall survival were reviewed...
