Near-Infrared–Guided Pulmonary Segmentectomy After Endobronchial Indocyanine Green Injection

ConclusionsNear-infrared–guided pulmonary segmentectomy with endobronchial ICG injection using virtual bronchoscopy was safe and feasible, and minor technical revision can make this procedure more reliable.

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.

Publication date: Available online 9 February 2020Source: Respiratory Medicine Case ReportsAuthor(s): Nina Järvelä Johansen, Ole Hilberg, Anders LøkkeAbstractA 50-year-old former smoker presented with recurrent pneumonia, fever and atypical chest pain on and off for a year and was treated with antibiotics several times. Meanwhile, her lung function deteriorated with an obstructive pattern and therefore she was treated with inhalation medication without effect. Tests of the heart, bronchoscopy, gastroscopy and a CT-scan of the lungs did not reveal the cause. Finally, an FDG-PET scan showed inflammation of t...

Authors: Ikeda T, Asano M, Kitada Y, Taguchi K, Hayashi Y, Kajita K, Morita H Abstract A 25-year-old woman had convulsions and disturbance of consciousness. Head magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed punctate areas in the occipital lobes with increased signals on T2-weighted imaging. The MRI abnormalities responded well to steroid pulse therapy, so we made a diagnosis of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES). Three months later, she developed a fever and dyspnea. Chest computed tomography revealed marked thickness of the tracheal and bronchial wall, and bronchoscopy showed a cobble-stone appearance ...

Subacute invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (SIPA), a rapidly progressive fungal infection of less than three months arising from pre ‐existing lung lesions, generally afflicts moderately immunocompromised patients. We herein report the case of a 69‐year‐old man who developed SIPA following chemoradiotherapy for lung cancer and treated with multiple antifungal therapy.

Conclusions: Endoscopic treatment with a rehabilitation program may be a valuable strategy for the management of lung abscess that is refractory to standard antibiotic therapy. Further and larger studiesshould be done to confirm our results.

We present a case of asymptomatic TO identified through fibreoptic bronchoscopy and biopsy after having a difficult intubation for elective prostate surgery. Tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica (TO) is a rare, benign, slowly progressive disease of unknown aetiology. It is characterized by numerous sessile, cartilaginous, or osseous submucosal nodules distributed throughout the anterolateral walls of the trachea and projecting into the laryngotracheobronchial lumen. The diagnosis is usually incidental with distinct bronchoscopic or computed tomography (CT) scan findings. We have identified a case of asymptomatic TO th...

A 60-year-old woman presented with extensive swelling in the throat and impending airway obstruction. Following a well-established 2-step flexible bronchoscopic intubation procedure, a computed tomography scan identified a large hematoma compromising the airway. Laboratory testing confirmed the diagnosis of acquired hemophilia A (AHA), a rare condition that can potentially be life-threatening, particularly when it results in airway obstruction. The risk of fatal bleeding is substantial when difficult airway management guidelines call for a surgical airway. This case report describes the essentials of hemostatic treatment o...

Abstract RATIONALE: Bronchopulmonary dysplasia (BPD) is a heterogenous condition with poorly characterized disease subgroups. OBJECTIVES: To define the frequency of three disease components: moderate-severe parenchymal disease, pulmonary hypertension (PH), or large airway disease, in a referral cohort of preterm infants with severe BPD. The association between each component and a primary composite outcome of death prior to hospital discharge, tracheostomy, or home pulmonary vasodilator therapy was assessed. METHODS: Retrospective, single center cohort study of infants born

CONCLUSION: The patient had unique anatomic considerations that made reconstruction challenging. Our technique of covering a stenotic section by normal trachea is a modification of the slide tracheoplasty technique and is useful for CTS with a unilateral and a bilateral TB.
