CONCLUSION: ENB is a minimally invasive procedure reaching acceptable sensitivity in the most difficult patients. ENB can be recommended for the diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary nodules when no other procedure is successful or possible. Its use as a first choice procedure is, for the moment, limited by the cost, but must be weighed against that of non-diagnostic procedures, and the cost of complications of trans-thoracic lung biopsies.

We report a case of a neglected foreign body present in the bronchus of an adult for 23 years and treated as intermittent asthma. The diagnosis was revealed following the development of severe sepsis of a pulmonary origin. The foreign body was removed by rigid bronchoscopy, antibiotic therapy instituted and pre- and post-interventional respiratory physiotherapy carried out. Satisfactory progress was marked by the complete clearing of pulmonary suppuration, with only a small localized and asymptomatic focus of bronchial dilatation remaining. The persistence of chronic, unexplained respiratory complaints should prompt t...

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.
