Factors affecting survival in patients with endobronchial malignant mass after flexible Bronchoscopic cryotherapy: a cohort study

Malignant endobronchial mass (MEM) has poor prognosis, cryotherapy is reportedly to diagnose MEM, however, the therapeutic role of cryotherapy impacts on survival has not be well addressed.

This study hypothesized that PCS with propofol during FB would facilitate early recovery, with similar bronchoscopist and patient satisfaction compared with nurse-controlled sedation (NCS) with midazolam. A total of 150 patients were randomized 1:1:1 into a control group (premedication with morphine-scopolamine and NCS with midazolam), PCS-MS group (premedication with morphine-scopolamine and PCS with propofol), and PCS-G group (premedication with glycopyrronium and PCS with propofol). Results: The procedures included transbronchial biopsy, transbronchial needle aspiration, cryotherapy/biopsy, and/or multistation endobr...

Conclusion: ECMO can meet the oxygenation needs during bronchoscopy-guided intervention therapy. For patients with severe central airway obstruction due to malignant tumors, ECMO should be considered if conventional respiratory support cannot guarantee the safety of surgery.

Rationale: The patient in this case report has been diagnosed with multidrug resistant lymph node fistula tracheobronchial tuberculosis (TBTB). The PubMed was searched using the keywords “Tuberculosis, Multidrug-Resistant”, “Tuberculosis”, and “Bronchial Fistula”, and the results yielded no similar case reports. Therefore, this report helps us to explore more on the causes of multidrug resistance and formation of lymph node fistula, as well as associated treatment strategies. Patient concerns: A 15-year old Tibetan girl who was previously treated in the local Hospital for Infectious...

Conclusion: In cases of ISS where GERD is a potential causative factor, resection by endoscopy may be the treatment of choice. Once GERD is effectively treated and if symptoms are still present, one should consider tracheal resection.

Publication date: Available online 14 October 2019Source: Respiratory Medicine Case ReportsAuthor(s): Chunli Che, Fushi Dong, Xue Wu, Wei Wang, Lixue JiangAbstractObjectiveThis case report shows that bronchoscopy is an important method to treat severe airway stenosis caused by bronchial amyloidosis. Bronchoscopic forceps were used to incise the intra-tracheal lump repeatedly. The incision was frozen with a cryosurgery probe, argon knife was used to stop the bleeding until the airway lumen stenosis was reduced to approximately 40%, after which, it continued to enter the lumen. We used bronchoscopic biopsy forceps to repeate...

This report describes the interventional bronchoscopic cryotherapy for a patient with CAO caused by squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus. We display a series of dramatic change of chest radiographs before and after the intervention. Patient concerns: A 70-year-old man with squamous cell carcinoma of the middle third of the esophagus (initial staging, pT2N0M0; stage IIB; in January 2017) underwent Video-assisted esophagectomy and reconstruction with a gastric conduit via a substernal route. Following Chest computed tomography and positron emission tomography revealed disease progression with paratracheal metastases. ...

Authors: Mohan A, Harris K, Bowling MR, Brown C, Hohenforst-Schmidt W Abstract Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer related deaths. Non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) accounts for ~85% of lung cancers. Our understanding of driver mutations and genotype directed therapy has revolutionized the management of advanced NSCLC. Commonly described mutations include mutations in epidermal growth factor (EGFR) &BRAF and translocations in anaplastic lymphoma kinase (ALK) &rat osteosarcoma (ROS1). Drugs directed against these translocations have significantly improved progression free survival individually and ha...
