A Novel Technique for the Placement of Endobronchial Watanabe Spigots Into the Bronchus: Side-Grasping Method

In this study, we assess a new technique, the side-grasping method, to maneuver the spigot into the target bronchus by using rotatable biopsy forceps to grasp the edge of the graspable part of the EWS. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of this new technique for the simple placement of the EWS. Methods: To compare the number of bronchoscopists who were able to place the EWS correctly within 10 minutes, and the time needed to place each spigot for both methods into 4 canine bronchi. Results: More bronchoscopists correctly placed the EWS within 10 minutes using the side-grasping method compared with the conventional method (35/40 vs. 15/40, P

Mucous gland adenomas represent a small percentage of primary lung neoplasms. The accurate diagnosis of these benign tumors can be challenging not only on resected specimens but also more challenging in small bronchoscopic biopsies. If to that problem we add the issue that these tumors may also exist in the periphery of the lung, then it is easy to conclude that there is much difficulty in properly diagnosing these tumors with a core needle biopsy. Furthermore, there is little knowledge on the immunohistochemical properties and radiologic features of these tumors. Therefore, pathologists need to be aware of the spectrum of...

Conclusions: The APD at the level of the intrathoracic inlet is larger than that at the cricoid and 2 cm above the carina, while the TD is the opposite. These findings about the trachea and bronchus in our study may contribute to bronchoscopy examinations, tube applications, stent design, and stenting.Respiration

Abstract PURPOSE: Perioperative complications of patients with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) are not well described. The aim of this study was to identify risk factors associated with adverse postoperative outcomes in IPF patients. METHODS: We performed a single-centre historical cohort study of adult patients with IPF who underwent surgery between 2008 and 2018. We analyzed the prognostic utility of select perioperative factors for postoperative acute exacerbation of IPF (AE-IPF), acute respiratory worsening (ARW), pneumonia, and 30-day and one-year mortality using univariable and multivariable regress...

Breath analysis holds promise for non-invasive in vivo monitoring of disease related processes. However, physiological parameters may considerably affect profiles of exhaled volatile organic substances (VOCs). Volatile substances can be released via alveoli, bronchial mucosa or from the upper airways. The aim of this study was the systematic investigation of the influence of different sampling sites in the respiratory tract on VOC concentration profiles by means of a novel experimental setup. After ethical approval, breath samples were collected from 25 patients undergoing bronchoscopy for endobronchial ultrasound or...

ConclusionsCombining EBUS ‐TBNA from at least two lymph node stations and EBB increased diagnostic yield of sarcoidosis. Such diagnostic strategy had almost 93% diagnostic yield in stage I and stage II of sarcoidosis. Taking into account the safety of the whole procedure with endobronchial ultrasonography combined with con ventional endoscopy with EBB and its cost effectiveness, TBLB can be intended to diagnose stage III or IV of pulmonary sarcoidosis.

Abstract Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica (TPO) is an idiopathic disease involving the cartilage rings of the large airway, characterized by submucosal calcified nodules. Localized tracheobronchial amyloidosis (TBA) is another rare disease with localized amyloid deposits in the tracheobronchial tree. The two diseases rarely coincide, and only a few case reports and series have been reported. A patient with dyspnea was referred to our clinic for suspicion of TBA. Chest computed tomography (CT) scan showed marked thickening of the tracheobronchial wall with calcified endobronchial submucosal nodules. The no...
