INDWELLING TRACHEAL tubes may need to be changed for a wide variety of physical or functional defects. For example, physical defects that require tube exchange include a failed sealing system (sticking pilot line 1-way valve, hole in pilot balloon or tube cuff) and defects in tube length and patency. Functional reasons that require exchange include the tube being too small for fiberoptic bronchoscopy and/or optimal ventilation and selective lung ventilation requiring a single-lumen to double-lumen tube exchange.

We report a case of a 60 ‐year‐old woman who developed a pulmonary abscess due to broncholithiasis and was treated by bronchoscopic broncholithectomy using a balloon catheter after antibiotic administration. A 60 ‐year‐old woman developed a pulmonary abscess due to broncholithiasis. It was treated by bronchoscopic broncholithectomy after antibiotic administration. Broncholithiasis is a rare disease and various treatment options are available, which include bronchoscopic broncholithectomy and surgery. Bro nchoscopic broncholithectomy has proved to be more useful because it can be used to easily extract the broncholi...

AbstractIntroductionOnly in 2005 was a product labeling law passed in Israel that requires food companies to mark a choking hazard. We wished to investigate the influence of the hazard warning on the number of foreign body aspirations (FBA) in Israel, as well as the racial differences in the prevalence of and death rates from FBA.Materials and MethodsAll the medical records of patients under the age of 14 who arrived at our center ’s emergency department between the years 2007 and 2015 with suspected FBA were retrospectively reviewed. Population data was extracted from the Central Bureau of Statistics.ResultsOverall,...

The secondary injury may present weeks to months after the initial insult and repeat bronchoscopy, and long ‐term follow‐up is required for the respiratory complications of CSI.Ingestion of caustic fluid may cause severe tracheal stenosis. Repeated airway dilatation may be a lifesaving intervention until such point that surgery can be performed.

ConclusionsII(+) patients were older, had larger burns, needed more ICU and hospital days, and had higher mortality rates. Among II(+) patients, military affiliation was associated with more severe II and increased mortality. Establishment of an objective grading system for II that is associated with mortality is a meaningful future research endeavor.

This study aimed to investigate whether co-administration of mesenchymal stromal cells (MSC) and linezolid (LZD) into a rabbit model of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)-infected pneumonia would bring a synergistic therapeutic effect. Human umbilical cord-derived MSCs (hUMSCs) were isolated and characterized. A rabbit model of pneumonia was constructed by delivering 1×1010 CFU MRSA via a bronchoscope into the basal segment of lower lobe of right lung. Through analyzing vital sign, pulmonary auscultation, SpO2, chest imaging, bronchoscopic manifestations, pathology, neutrophil percentage, and inflamma...
