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...

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...

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...

RATIONALE: Conventional transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-TBNA are widely accepted tools for the diagnosis and staging of lung cancer and the initial procedure of choice for staging. Obtaining adequate specimens is key to provide a specific histologic and molecular diagnosis of lung cancer. OBJECTIVES: To develop practice guidelines on the acquisition and preparation of conventional TBNA and EBUS-TBNA specimens for the diagnosis and molecular testing of (suspected) lung cancer...

Bronchology/Interventional Global Case ReportsSESSION TYPE: Global Case ReportPRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 28, 2014 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMINTRODUCTION: Carcinoid tumors belong to the group of neuroendocrine tumors whose cells are part of the APUD system, with the place of origin being most frequently in the gastrointestinal tract (more often the appendix). Pulmonary involvement can be seen in about 0.5 % to 2% with no difference between gender, usually in patients above 60 years old, with no correlation with smoking, radiation or chemicals...

Bronchoscopy and Interventional ProceduresSESSION TYPE: Original Investigation SlidePRESENTED ON: Monday, October 27, 2014 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMPURPOSE: Axial imaging is the gold standard for measuring CAO but anecdotal evidence suggests that many bronchoscopists use visual estimation. The prevalence and reliability of this method has never been reported. This study aims to determine bronchoscopists' opinions about and practical methods of assessing central airway obstruction (CAO).METHODS: Members of the American Association of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology were invited to participate in an online survey...

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...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the validity of guidelines published by interventional medical societies. METHODS: We reviewed the interventional medicine subspecialty society websites of the American Association for Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology (AABIP), American Society of Diagnostic and Interventional Nephrology (ASDIN), American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), and Society for Cardiovascular Angiography and Interventions (SCAI) as of November 15, 2012, for published interventional guidelines...

SESSION TYPE: Bronchology Global Case Report PostersPRESENTED ON: Tuesday, October 23, 2012 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PMINTRODUCTION: Airway stenosis result from bronchial tuberculosis is one of the most common cause of non-malignat airway stenosis. Balloon dilatation has become an accepted treatment to fibrotic stenosis from bronchial tuberculosis. For stenosis from active bronchial tuberculosis, interventional bronchoscopy treatment is controversial, still not standardized or unified around the world. Now we report a case of bronchial stenosis from active bronchial tuberculosis , in addition to active anti-tuberculosis treatment, we also give several interventional endoscopic treatments and success in the treatment...

BACKGROUND: Ergonomics is defined by the United States Department of Labor as "the science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands to the capabilities of the working population." Currently, there remains a deficiency in available data regarding the impact that musculoskeletal pain and ergonomics have within the field of pulmonary endoscopic procedures. We sought to define the impact of musculoskeletal pain and ergonomics in physicians with an interest in interventional pulmonology...

Although significant experience exists in placing airway stents, and knowledge of stent-related complications is widespread, information is lacking regarding methods of surveillance and maintaining patency of these stents. The purpose of this investigation was to determine the actual practice patterns used by interventional pulmonologists for airway stent maintenance. We prospectively surveyed members of the American Association of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology or attendees at their annual meeting during Chest 2008...

PURPOSE: This study sought to identify the rate of complications and clinical risk factors for early complications of high-dose-rate endobronchial brachytherapy (HDR-EBBT). The identification of these risk factors could result in a decrease or avoidance of complications. PATIENTS AND METHODS: We analyzed risk factors for complications in 761 patients with advanced-stage lung cancer who were treated with HDR-EBBT as a part of the multimodality therapy. We reviewed patient, radiology, and bronchology charts for complications of HDR-EBBT...

OBJECTIVES: The specialty of otolaryngology in the United States has changed dramatically over the past century, and this is particularly true in the field of bronchoesophagology, which has evolved from a new specialty at the beginning of the 20th century to one that is now multidisciplinary and further subspecialized. The purpose of this report was to trace the evolution of bronchoesophagology over the past 60 years by examining and quantitating the scientific subject matter of the annual meetings of the American Broncho-Esophagological Association (ABEA)...
