Bronchoscopic examination has a key role in diagnosing or further specifying of a broad spectrum of respiratory diseases. Although classic bronchoscopy with its rigid instrumentation still upholds its position, the vast majority of procedures are performed with flexible bronchoscopes. Diagnostic possibilities are broadened by new technical findings and procedures, such as endobronchial ultrasonography, examination through autofluorescence, navigated bronchoscopy and others. The material for cytological, microbiological or other examinations can be sampled through a whole number of procedures using specialized instruments...

AIM: Eighteen years have passed since the last European survey concerning practices in pediatric bronchoscopy was conducted. Therefore, members of the European Respiratory Society (ERS) Pediatric Bronchology Group 7.7, initiated the "European Pediatric Bronchoscopy Survey 2015," which aimed to assess the current state of this evolving diagnostic and therapeutic procedure in the field of pediatric respiratory medicine. METHOD: A questionnaire was sent to national representatives of 44 European countries with the request to distribute it to all centers performing pediatric bronchoscopies...

BACKGROUND: Airway stenting (AS) commenced in Europe circa 1987 with the first placement of a dedicated silicone airway stent. Subsequently, over the last 3 decades, AS was spread throughout Europe, using different insertion techniques and different types of stents. OBJECTIVES: This study is an international survey conducted by the European Association of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (EABIP) focusing on AS practice within 26 European countries. METHODS: A questionnaire was sent to all EABIP National Delegates in February 2015...

Endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is a minimally invasive method for diagnosing and staging of lung cancer. EBUS-TBNA obtained small specimens. Rapid on-site examination (ROSE) is a rapid, real-time examination method. The aim of our study is to evaluate the impact of ROSE on adequate specimen sampling, rapid results and high diagnostic rate. We present the experience of the Department of Bronchology, "Leon Daniello" Clinic of Pulmonology, Cluj-Napoca, Romania, with EBUS-TBNA as a tool for diagnostic of adenopathies of unknown etiology...

RATIONALE: Accurate mediastinal staging is a cornerstone in the management of patients with lung cancer. For patients with radiographically normal mediastinum, current lung cancer guidelines recommend invasive mediastinal staging when tumors are centrally located. However, definitions of central tumors are nonspecific, and there are discrepancies among guidelines (e.g., some use the inner one-third of the hemithorax, whereas others use the inner two-thirds). OBJECTIVES: To describe the definitions of central tumors used by pulmonologists and thoracic surgeons in their practices...

BACKGROUND: Accurate and consistent regional lymph node classification is an important element in the staging and multidisciplinary management of lung cancer. Regional lymph node definition sets-lymph node maps-have been created to standardize regional lymph node classification. In 2009, the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer (IASLC) introduced a lymph node map to supersede all preexisting lymph node maps. Our aim was to study if and how lung cancer specialists apply the IASLC lymph node map when classifying thoracic lymph nodes encountered on CT scans during lung cancer staging...

The clinical expectations how pathologists should submit lung cancer diagnosis have changed dramatically. Until mid 90-ties a clear separation between small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and non-small cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) was mostly sufficient. With the invention of antiangiogenic treatment a differentiation between squamous and non-squamous NSCLC was requested. When epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutation was detected in patients with pulmonary adenocarcinomas and subsequent specific treatment with tyrosine kinase inhibitors (TKIs) was invented, sub-classification of NSCLC and molecular analysis of the tumor tissue for mutations was asked for...

RATIONALE: All bronchoscopists will encounter, at some point, central airway obstruction (CAO) and will face the problem of documenting its severity. Axial imaging is suggested as the gold standard for assessing CAO, but anecdotal evidence indicates that many bronchoscopists use visual estimation. The prevalence and reliability of this method have not been extensively studied. OBJECTIVES: This study aimed to determine bronchoscopists' opinions about assessing CAO and to assess the variability of visual estimation...

Palliative airway treatments are essential to improve quality and length of life in lung cancer patients with central airway obstruction. Rigid bronchoscopy has proved to be an excellent tool to provide airway access and control in this cohort of patients. The main indication for rigid bronchoscopy in adult bronchology remains central airway obstruction due to neoplastic or non-neoplastic disease. We routinely use negative pressure ventilation (NPV) under general anaesthesia to prevent intraoperative apnoea and respiratory acidosis...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: Bronchoscopy is performed in a variety of different settings in Italy. The surveys conducted so far have highlighted the heterogeneity of the procedures and the frequent inability to adhere to the guidelines. The aim of this survey was to analyse procedures, training, and opinions of Italian respiratory physicians performing interventional bronchology in the clinical practice. METHODS: The study was conducted retrospectively on 300 pulmonologists...

BACKGROUND: Nd:YAG laser (1064 nm) is standard in bronchology. The thulium fiber laser (1940 nm) has a nearly 1000-fold increased absorption in water, enabling precise tissue ablation with a small margin of coagulation, whereas 1064-nm laser light penetrates deeper into tissue with less controllable effects. OBJECTIVES: To assess the safety, feasibility, and versatility of endobronchial thulium laser therapy in an observational cohort study. METHODS: Endobronchial treatment with the thulium fiber laser was performed in a cohort study of 187 bronchoscopies on 132 consecutive patients with 135 endobronchial lesions amenable to laser resection...
