The utility of virtual fluoroscopy during transbronchial biopsy for not visible ground ‐glass nodules on x‐ray fluoroscopy
ConclusionVBN is helpful for the diagnosis of TBT-induced CBS and may provide important information on the location, length, diameter and cross-sectional area of stenosis for further EOB examination and interventional therapy. VBN is recommended for patients with TBT and those with contradictions to bronchoscopy, as well as for regular follow-up of stable TBT, because it reduces the incidence of injury, avoids repeat operations and shortens treatment ti me.
The robots are here. For years Intuitive Surgical has remained relatively unchallenged in the surgical robotics market. The Sunnyvale, CA-based company has had the da Vinci robot on the market since 2,000, and no other firm has come close to matching its impact in the industry. But Medtronic and Johnson &Johnson are hard-pressed on giving it a try. Separately, the two companies have been building robotics solutions that will undoubtedly be competitors to Intuitiveâs da Vinci. New Brunswick, NJ-based Johnson &Johnson found a nice entry point to compete through the Verb joint venture with Verily Lif...
We examined the lung field through X-ray fluoroscopy and found that the detached opaque tip was located in the right middle lung field. We re-inserted the bronchoscope, and successfully recovered it using transbronchial biopsy forceps. The rate of complications in EBUS-GS is low, and the complication presented in this report is rare. Physicians should exercise caution when performing this procedure and carefully check the condition of the kit to reduce the risk of such complications.
ConclusionDelayed postintubation tracheal stenosis should be taken into consideration, when a patient suffers from suffocating tracheal stenosis.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic yield of CT-guided lung biopsies (CTB) following nondiagnostic electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB) biopsy and identify lesions that may be more successfully biopsied with CT.
To assess the feasibility of interventional radiology (IR) methods to perform bronchoscope-free augmented fluoroscopy (AF)-guided endobronchial biopsy using endovascular steerable guiding sheaths compared to interventional pulmonology (IP) methods with a bronchoscope.
Abstract The purpose of the present study was to evaluate the clinical profiles and treatment outcomes of patients with lung cancer admitted to the Medical Psychiatric Unit (MPU), which is built for patients with physical and severe psychiatric disorders. All medical records of patients with lung cancer admitted to the MPU of Tachikawa hospital were reviewed. The clinical outcomes of these patients were retrospectively evaluated between January 2010 and December 2016. A total of 24 patients in the MPU were histologically or cytologically diagnosed with primary lung cancer. Of these, 20 patients had schizophrenia, ...

CONCLUSION: Our manuscript depicts the results of a Delphi process in 2018/2019 involving experts of the German Thoracic Surgery Society from high volume departments certified for thoracic surgery and/or lung cancer surgery. In general, a very high rate of consensus was documented for the majority of the topics concerning the perioperative management of oncological anatomical selective lung resection procedures. The most important topic for which no consensus could be reached was preoperative endobronchial microbiological diagnostic testing. PMID: 32066185 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Centrally located primary lung tumour defined as visibility of the tumor on video bronchoscopy in the main stem, lobair or segment bronchi or tumor adherent to or in between segment bronchi or blood vessels on computed tomography. (DLCA-S definition)
