The Utility of Ultrasound to Diagnose Tunnel-Tract Infection Related to Indwelling Pleural Catheters
We describe the ultrasonographic characteristics of 3 cases of confirmed tunnel-tract infection and compared them with noninfected chronic IPCs. Ultrasonographic evaluation of the soft tissue tunnel tract can accurately identify fluid collections around the catheter and cuff, which is highly suggestive of tunnel-tract infection.

Distinguishing Bronchoscopic Changes of Mitral Stenosis From Carcinoma In Situ With Narrow Band Imaging
A 75-year-old woman presented with minor hemoptysis. Past history included atrial fibrillation and rheumatic mitral stenosis. Bronchoscopy revealed a striking abnormality of widespread dilated mucosal and submucosal vessels. Initially the concern was whether there was widespread endobronchial malignancy; however, narrow band imaging (NBI) demonstrated the symmetrical uniform nature of the vessels. In addition, there was a focal area of in situ carcinoma with classic NBI features of malignancy. Following external-beam radiation therapy, NBI features had dramatically changed in the treated area which was now biopsy negative....

Novel Bronchoscopic Management of Airway Bleeding With Absorbable Gelatin and Thrombin Slurry
Conclusions: Bronchoscopic instillation of an absorbable GTS is feasible and may be used in cases of spontaneous or procedure-related bleeding in addition to conventional measures. It can be delivered through the working channel of the bronchoscope or through the distal port available in some bronchial blockers. Controlled studies are necessary to determine the safety and efficacy of this novel technique. (Source: Journal of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology)

Assessment of Bronchoscopic Dexterity and Procedural Competency in a Low-fidelity Simulation Model
Background: Assessment of competency in bronchoscopy has traditionally been undertaken in clinical settings, however, recent recognition of increased procedural complications and learner anxiety have led to interest in simulation-based competency assessment. The aim of this study was to determine if low-fidelity simulation-based assessment allows discrimination of competency based on prior experience between bronchoscopists. Methods: Forty-four participants were allocated to 3 groups based on prior bronchoscopic experience [novices (n=31) with no prior experience, intermediates (n=7) with prior experience of 5 to 10 b...

Suffocation From Balloon Bronchoplasty
We described a case of “hemorrhagic bronchial mucosa syndrome” and asymptomatic blood-tinged pulmonary edema after balloon bronchoplasty for a concentric tracheal stenosis using a flexible bronchoscopy. This was characterized by interval appearance of diffuse petechial tracheobronchial bleeding and a persistent blood-tinged alveolar effluent after sustained occlusion of the airway. The simultaneous occurrence of both phenomena in this patient suggests different degrees of injury in a common pathogenic spectrum. We postulate that sustained, complete occlusion of the airway produces variable degrees of mechanical...

Combined Endosonography Reduces Time to Diagnose Pulmonary Coccidioidomycosis
We present 13 consecutive cases where EBUS-TBNA and/or EUS-FNA of pulmonary lymph nodes were performed as part of the workup for pulmonary coccidioidomycosis. EBUS-TBNA+EUS-FNA led to diagnosis in all nine cases in which they were performed concurrently, and in the remaining 4 in which either was performed individually. BAL was performed in all cases with positive results in 5 (38%). The mean time to diagnose by EBUS/EUS (1.6 d) was significantly shorter than by bronchoalveolar lavage (6.3 d) (P=0.003). The findings indicate that combined EBUS-TBNA+EUS-FNA for lymph node biopsy facilitates early and accurate ...

A 65-year-old woman, never smoker, with medical history of hypertension, nonischemic cardiomyopathy, and moderate pulmonary hypertension presented with symptomatic bilateral pleural effusions. Thoracentesis revealed a lymphocyte predominant transudate and was negative for malignancy, microbiologic cultures were negative for an infectious cause. Chest tomography showed mediastinal and bilateral hilar lymphadenopathy, lymph node biopsy with endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration showed non-necrotizing granulomas compatible with sarcoidosis. Echocardiogram showed ejection fraction of 45% and cardiac ...

VV-ECMO–Assisted High-Risk Endobronchial Stenting as Rescue for Asphyxiating Mediastinal Mass
We present a case of a 49-year-old woman with refractory multiple myeloma and extramedullary plasmacytoma presenting with acute hypoxic respiratory failure from extrinsic airway compression by a mediastinal plasmacytoma. We were able to use VV-ECMO to assist with endobronchial stent placement, followed by radiation therapy, and ultimately hospital discharge. In this article, we also review the literature surrounding VV-ECMO for extrinsic airway compression. (Source: Journal of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology)

1% Versus 2% Lignocaine for Airway Anesthesia in Flexible Bronchoscopy Without Lignocaine Nebulization (LIFE): A Randomized Controlled Trial
Background: The ideal concentration of lignocaine for topical anesthesia in bronchoscopy remains investigational. In this randomized, double blind study, we compared 1% versus 2% lignocaine for topical anesthesia. Methods: Consecutive patients undergoing bronchoscopy were randomized to receive either 1% or 2% lignocaine solution by spray-as-you-go technique. All received 10% lignocaine spray to the oropharynx along with nasal 2% lignocaine gel. Nebulized lignocaine was not administered.

Endobronchial Ultrasound Transbronchial Needle Aspiration for the Diagnosis of Lymphoma
Conclusion: Although the sensitivity of EBUS-TBNA for the diagnosis of lymphoma did not reach values of published data for non–small cell lung cancer, EBUS-TBNA can be considered as a first-line diagnostic tool for patients with mediastinal and/or hilar lymphadenopathy suspected to be lymphoma. Because of the inherent limitations in small volume needle biopsies it is essential that negative samples obtained in the setting of high clinical suspicion warrant further evaluation.
