Corrosive injury of the trachea in children

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.

We report herein on two cases where high-risk osseous foreign bodies that incarcerated or penetrated the bronchial wall. The foreign bodies were unable to be removed via flexible bronchoscope (FB), with the foreign bodies close to the pulmonary artery and aortic artery. After preoperative evaluation and planning with the virtual bronchoscopic navigation (VBN) system, the airway foreign bodies were extracted effectively and safely using advanced therapeutic endoscopic technique by rigid bronchoscope (RB), thus avoiding the surgical thoracotomy.

ConclusionsOur technique is simple and safe, not needing specific skills and/or cumbersome devices. The replacement of tracheostomy cannula with T ‐tube seems to improve quality of voice without adding major complications.

Conclusions Our sequential strategy, using sputum cytology/cytometry to select high-risk individuals for AFB and LDCT, did not lead to a clear stage shift and did not improve the efficiency of lung cancer screening.

A 60-year-old man with a hoarse voice was referred to our hospital. Lung squamous cell carcinoma was diagnosed at the clinical tumor-node-metastasis stage of cT2N2M0, and concurrent chemoradiotherapy was initiated. Further, a small cavity was also detected in ...

This article highlights the serious but reversible effects of multivitamin pill aspiration into the lungs. If diagnosed early and treated promptly the harmful effects of the pill constituents on the lungs and airways can be attenuated. An early bronchoscopy and a high index of suspicion is required in order not to miss these events. We have described a case of multivitamin pill aspiration in a young healthy male and the good response to early intervention.

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...

Few medtech sectors are as hot as surgical robotics is right now, so it comes as no surprise that analysts tried to dig for information about Johnson &Johnson's plans for the market during the company's third-quarter earnings call Tuesday. "I couldn't be more bullish around how J&J is going to create value in this space," Ashley McEvoy, EVP and worldwide chairman of Johnson &Johnson's medical device segment, said during the call in response to an analyst's question about surgical robotics. "The goal that we're trying to achieve is really to make medical interventions smarter, less invasive, more pers...

A 71-year-old man complained of cough for 3 months. Computed tomography scanning revealed a calcified tracheal tumor near the tracheal bifurcation. Pulmonary function testing indicated airflow limitation, and ...

Abstract BACKGROUND: Guidelines recommend mediastinal sampling first for patients with mediastinal lymphadenopathy with suspected lung cancer. Our objective was to describe practice patterns and outcomes of diagnostic strategies in patients with lung cancer. METHODS: Retrospective cohort of 15,914 lung cancer patients with T1-3/N1-3/M0 disease diagnosed from 2004 to 2013 in the SEER or Texas Cancer Registry Medicare-linked databases. We classified patients who had mediastinal sampling as their first invasive test as guideline-consistent; all others were guideline-inconsistent. We used propensity matching to c...
