J Bronchology Interv Pulmonol 2019 Apr;26(2):129-131

Departments of General Thoracic Surgery.

Since the development of third-generation epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) tyrosine kinase inhibitors for lung cancer treatment, the need for a rebiopsy has increased. To select an appropriate therapeutic regimen, the genetic alterations in cancerous tissue should be determined. A rebiopsy plays an important role in the treatment of patients with diseases that are refractory to the previous generation of EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibitors. Read More

Using a Laryngeal Mask Airway During Percutaneous Dilatational Tracheostomy is Safe and Obviates the Need for Paralytics.

J Bronchology Interv Pulmonol 2019 Feb 6. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, Medstar Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, DC.

Background: Bedside percutaneous tracheostomy (PT) placement in critically ill patients is performed in a variety of ways, largely driven by institutional preference. We have recently transitioned to primarily extubating the patient and placing a laryngeal mask airway (LMA) before tracheostomy insertion in lieu of retracting the endotracheal tube (ETT) in place. This allows for lower sedative use and provides a superior view of the operative field. Read More
