Does virtual bronchoscopic navigation improve the diagnostic yield of transbronchial biopsy?
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)

While generally well tolerated, complications such as bleeding do occur. Description of bleeding severity is crucial both clinically and in research trials; to date, there is no validated scale that is widely accepted for; this purpose. RESEARCH QUESTION: Can a simple, reproducible tool for categorizing the severity of bleeding after transbronchial bi...
ConclusionENB is a safe diagnostic procedure in an everyday setting with an acceptable diagnostic yield that offers a possibility to diagnose pulmonary nodules in patients for whom other diagnostic procedures are too hazardous or have proven unsuccessful.
