Near-infrared guided pulmonary segmentectomy following endobronchial indocyanine green injection.
CONCLUSIONS: NIR-guided pulmonary segmentectomy with endobronchial ICG injection using virtual bronchoscopy was safe and feasible, and minor technical revision can make this procedure more reliable. PMID: 31586621 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Bronchoscopic device closure can be a successful strategy to manage postoperative BPF with minimal complications.
Conclusions: An individualized approach to interventional procedures is safe and effective way to achieve and maintain palliation of CAO. RB with multimodality treatment achieves the goal in majority of the patients.
Conclusion: Scarf pin inhalation is common in women who wear the Islamic headscarf. Bronchoscopy is an important tool to manage these FBs, but the best prevention treatment is careful handling of these potentially sharp objects away from the mouth.
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.
Abstract CASE VIGNETTE: A 23 year-old man arrives at the emergency department with a three week history of dyspnea, dry cough, fevers and night sweats. Two weeks previously, he was evaluated in an outpatient clinic and given a course of azithromycin for presumed infectious pneumonia. His symptoms did not improve and he was seen one week later in an urgent care center and given a prescription for doxycycline which he has been taking without improvement. He states that he feels miserable, has severe nausea and vomiting, and has not eaten in several days. His only past medical history is childhood asthma. He reports ...
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.
