Infraglottic versus supraglottic jet-ventilation for endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration: A randomised controlled trial
CONCLUSION EBUS-TBNA under general anaesthesia using a LMA with SHJV is equal to rigid bronchoscopy with superimposed high-frequency jet ventilation for the variables analysed. TRIAL REGISTRATION ISRCTN (ISRCTN58911367).
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: EBUS-TBNA can be considered an important diagnostic tool for patients with mediastinal tumors and lymphadenopathy suspected to be lymphoma. By the introduction of this method EBUS-TBNA with ROSE in our country we can diagnose patients with lymphoma that cannot be diagnosed by conventional bronchoscopy.
Conclusion: These results confirm that the rate of serious complications in patients with space-occupying brain lesions who undergo bronchoscopy with general anesthesia is similar to that in patients without brain lesions, indicating that bronchoscopy can be performed safely in this patient population.
CONCLUSIONS: The i-gel O2 airway is easy to position and manage even for anesthesiologists unfamiliar with it. This supraglottic airway device is suitable for a complete endosonographic evaluation of the mediastinum. PMID: 31462167 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusion: Awake EUS-B is a safe, well tolerated procedure that can be done without sedation in patients with high risk for sedation.
Conclusion: HT after bronchoscopy is a rare self-limiting condition and has only been reported once in the literature. There is minor risk of HT after bronchoscopy with excessive coughing due to upsurge in middle ear pressure.
Assessment of the mediastinal and hilar lymph nodes (LNs) is required for accurate staging of non-small cell lung cancer and other thoracic malignancies. Endobronchial ultrasound trans-bronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) is rapidly becoming the modality of choice for pathological staging of the mediastinum . This approach incorporates bronchoscopy with real-time ultrasound visualization of the LNs prior to fine needle aspiration. Compared to traditional mediastinoscopy, which involves a surgical procedure under general anesthesia, EBUS-TBNA is minimally invasive, has a comparable diagnostic yield, has considerably l...
