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

High-riding Superior Pericardial Recess: A Key Pitfall in Misinterpretation During CT Evaluation of the Mediastinum.

J Bronchology Interv Pulmonol 2019 Jan;26(1):71-73

Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery, Medicine in Clinical Cardiothoracic Surgery, Interventional Pulmonology, Weill Cornell Medical College, New York, NY.

An understanding of thoracic computed tomographic anatomy is vital for procedural planning in bronchoscopy. When reviewing computed tomographic images in preparation for endobronchial ultrasound-directed staging for lung cancer, the presence of fluid in pericardial recesses can often be mistaken for mediastinal lymphadenopathy, potentially causing pitfalls in radiologic interpretation. We describe 2 cases of a high-riding superior aortic recess extending into right paratracheal lymph node station mimicking paratracheal lymphadenopathy. Read More

Bronchoscopically Delivered Thermal Vapor Ablation of Human Lung Lesions.

J Bronchology Interv Pulmonol 2018 Jul 25. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

Uptake Medical Technology Inc., Seattle, WA.

Background: The discovery that early diagnosis can reduce the mortality of lung cancer provides firm evidence that early surgical intervention is effective. However, surgical resection is available only to those who are healthy enough to tolerate the procedure. Vapor ablation may provide an additional method of treating the lung cancer patient, and has been studied in humans for emphysema treatment. Read More

Optimizing the Approach to Patients With Pleural Effusion and Radiologic Findings Suspect for Cancer.

J Bronchology Interv Pulmonol 2018 Jul 25. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

Division of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, AR.

Background: When patients present with pleural effusion and structural abnormalities consistent with malignancy on imaging, the traditional approach has been to perform a thoracentesis and await the results before proceeding to more invasive diagnostic procedures. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether concurrent thoracentesis and tissue biopsy is superior to sequential sampling.

Methods: Retrospective chart review was performed for patients who had a pleural cytology from May 2014 until January 2017. Read More

J Bronchology Interv Pulmonol 2018 Jul 25. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

Department of Medicine, Division of Pulmonary, Allergy and Critical Care Medicine.

Background: Pleural fluid can be used to assess targetable mutations in patients with lung adenocarcinoma. The primary objective of this study was to assess the yield of pleural fluid cytology for targetable oncogenic mutations (EGFR, KRAS, BRAF, ALK, and ROS1 gene rearrangements). We also assessed pleural fluid volume necessary for molecular testing. Read More

Prospective Experience of High-flow Nasal Oxygen During Bronchoscopy in 182 Patients: A Feasibility Study.

J Bronchology Interv Pulmonol 2019 Jan;26(1):66-70

Anaesthetic Department, St John's Hospital, NHS Lothian, UK.

Background: High-flow nasal oxygen (HFNO) has recently gained popularity during administration of anesthesia in a variety of circumstances, including apneic oxygenation. Fully qualified anesthesiologists provide sedation for our outpatient bronchoscopy service. We adopted this therapy to assess its efficacy providing optimal conditions (using a variety of sedation regimens) for patient and bronchoscopist. Read More
