AbstractThe aim of our study is a retrospective evaluation of effectiveness and safety of Computed Tomography (CT)-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA) therapy of primary and metastatic lung lesions in patients that cannot be considered surgical candidates. From February 2007 to September 2017, we performed 264 CT-guided ablation sessions on 264 lesions in 174 patients (112  M and 62 F; mean age, 68 years; range 36–83 years) affected by primary and metastatic lung lesions. The 45% of patients was affected by primary lung cancer, with size range lesion of 10–50 mm, and the 55% by metastatic l...

We report a case where serial follow-up chest computed tomography revealed progression of pulmonary lesions into confluent bilateral consolidation with lower lung predominance, thereby confirming COVID-19 pneumonia. Furthermore, complications such as mediastinal emphysema, giant bulla, and pneumothorax were also observed during the course of the disease. PMID: 32207255 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This report described a familial case of BHDS complicated with various types of cancer (i.e. bladder, ureter, and lung). AbstractAn 89 ‐year‐old woman with small papules on her face presented to our hospital complaining of progressive dyspnoea. Chest computed tomography (CT) showed bilateral multiple lung cysts, a nodular opacity in the right lower lobe, and bilateral pleural effusion. She was diagnosed with adenocarcinoma. Her son, a 65‐year‐old man, also had bilateral basally located lung cysts and a past medical history of spontaneous pneumothorax. He had multiple papules on the face and neck, which were patholo...

AbstractAn abnormal collection of air in the thorax is one of the most common life-threatening events that occurs in the intensive care unit. Patient management differs depending on the location of the air collection; therefore, detecting abnormal air collection and identifying its exact location on supine chest radiographs is essential for early treatment and positive patient outcomes. Thoracic abnormal air collects in multiple thoracic spaces, including the pleural cavity, chest wall, mediastinum, pericardium, and lung. Pneumothorax in the supine position shows different radiographic findings depending on the location. M...

ger U Abstract Flexible bronchoscopy and endobronchial ultrasound guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) are the pulmonologists´ basic procedures for the biopsy of suspicious lung lesions. If inconclusive, other guiding-modalities for tissue sampling are needed, computed tomography performed by a radiologist, or - if available - radial EBUS or electromagnetic navigation biopsy. We wanted to investigate if same-day X-ray fluoroscopy-guided transthoracic fine-needle aspiration biopsy (F-TTNAB) performed by the pulmonologist immediately after bronchoscopy and EBUS is a feasible alternative. We retr...

We aimed to emphasize which method should be prioritized by comparing the ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) guidance for percutaneous transthoracic biopsy of pleural-based lung lesions in terms of comorbidity, diagnostic success, time, and costs. Approximately 700 biopsy procedures performed between 2014 and 2018 were retrospectively reviewed. The files of these patients and picture archiving and communication system were scanned. Size and localization of the lesion, pathological diagnosis, comorbidity status, pneumothorax complications at the end of the procedure, and whether or not a thoracic tube was placed due ...

Conclusion CT-guided medical glue and methylene blue dye localization prior to video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lung resection was a novel, safe, and technically feasible method, with a high-technical success rate and a low-complication rate. It allowed surgeons to easily locate and detect the nodules and estimate the surgical margin.

Conclusions: CT-guided percutaneous needle biopsy had high diagnostic yield for the diagnosis of subcentimeter lung nodules with a similar complication rate to biopsy of larger lesions. Fine-needle aspiration may be an independent factor for diagnostic failure even for malignant lesions.
