Massive haemoptysis from right middle lobe bronchus managed by customized silicon stents

We presented an 89‐year‐old bronchiectasis patient who developed massive haemoptysis from the right middle lobe bronchus. Haemoptysis was not controlled by both pharmacological treatment and bronchial artery embolization. Two customized silicone stents with the one in the right middle lob e bronchus and another in the right intermediate bronchus were used to manage haemoptysis. One month after stents implantation, the stent inside the right intermediate bronchus was removed, another stent was left in the right middle lobe bronchus to continue occluding the bleeding passageway. Haemop tysis did not occur after silicon stents deployment. This may be the first case of receiving straight silicon stent implantation to manage massive haemoptysis from the right middle lobe bronchus.

Conclusions: Magnesium sulfate is an important adjuvant drug in the practice of anesthesia, with several clinical effects and a low incidence of adverse events when used at recommended doses. Introduction Magnesium is the fourth most common ion in the body, and it participates in several cellular processes, including protein synthesis, neuromuscular function and stability of nucleic acid, as well as regulating other electrolytes such as calcium and sodium. Magnesium acts as a cofactor in protein synthesis, neuromuscular function and stability and the function of nucleic acids. It is a component of adenosine 5-triph...

Introduction: Few data with conflicting results is available on the impact of age on indications and complications associated with FB, namely in the very elderly population.Aims: To retrospectively compare indications and complications of FB in very elderly patients (pts) with younger ones and to determine risk factors for FB complications.Methods: The clinical files of 1592 adult pts who underwent FB at our Unit from 2014 to 2016 were reviewed. Demographic data, indications, type of procedure, and complications in pts aged ≥85 years and aged

In conclusion, EBM of the germ cell tumors especially with total or partial atelectasis are extremely rare. We want to present these cases to emphasize the importance of distinguishing EBM from primary lung carcinoma which treatment and survival could be different.

In this study, the optimal sequence of bronchial brushing relative to bronchial biopsy for lung cancer diagnosis was evaluated. METHODS: A total of 420 patients with visible endobronchial tumors were prospectively and randomly enrolled in two groups: a pre-biopsy brushing group, receiving two brushings before biopsy; two brushings which performed afterwards; were set as self-control and compared with the pre-biopsy brushings as the intra-group comparison; and a post-biopsy brushing group, only receiving two brushings after biopsy, which were compared with the pre-biopsy brushings as the inter-group comparison. Diagnost...

Conclusions Rigid bronchoscopic intervention for endobronchial metastasis of renal cell carcinoma is feasible with safety and effectiveness for palliation of airway obstruction, if one prepares sufficiently for massive intraoperative bleeding.

Authors: Küpeli E Abstract Conventional transbronchial needle aspiration (C-TBNA) provides an opportunity to diagnose mediastinal lesions and stage bronchogenic carcinoma in a minimally invasive fashion. The procedure is easy to learn and requires zero upfront cost. Any community pulmonologist can acquire and maintain the skills of C-TBNA without undergoing formal interventional pulmonary fellowship training. Besides being used for the diagnosis and staging of lung cancer, C-TBNA can be used in patients suspected to have benign conditions such as sarcoidosis and tuberculosis. It also contributes in improving t...

A 68-year-old smoker on aspirin/clopidogrel due to recent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) /stenting presented with intermittent haemoptysis. Bronchoscopy revealed an endoluminal tumour in a right-lower-lobe segment (figure 1). No biopsy was taken due to bleeding risk. Aspirate analysis showed sparse cells with granular cytoplasm, and a presumptive diagnosis of bronchial carcinoid was made. CT scan showed no lymphadenopathy. After stopping clopidogrel and absent signs for progression on CT scan/bronchoscopy, right-lower lobectomy was performed. Histological analysis revealed a submucosal lipoma (figure 2). Differen...
