Noninvasive Ventilation-Facilitated Bronchofiberoscopy in Patients with Respiratory Failure.

Adv Exp Med Biol 2019 Apr 16. Epub 2019 Apr 16.

Department of Pneumology, School of Medicine in Katowice, Upper-Silesian Medical Center, Medical University of Silesia, Katowice, Poland.

Respiratory failure is one of the most important risk factors for diagnostic bronchofiberoscopy (BF), whereas therapeutic bronchoscopies are typically performed in intubated patients. Only a few published studies analyzed the outcomes of noninvasive mechanical ventilation (NIV)-facilitated BF. In this case series, we present our experiences with NIV-facilitated diagnostic and therapeutic BF performed in patients with respiratory failure that was associated with acute interstitial pulmonary disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cystic fibrosis exacerbation, foreign body aspiration, tracheal stenosis, pneumonia, and in a patient with a neuromuscular disease.

Seeding and Implantation of a Biosynthetic Tissue-engineered Tracheal Graft in a Mouse Model.

J Vis Exp 2019 Apr 1(146). Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Department of Otolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery, Nationwide Children's Hospital; Center for Regenerative Medicine, Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital;

Treatment options for congenital or secondary long segment tracheal defects have historically been limited due to an inability to replace functional tissue. Tissue engineering holds great promise as a potential solution with its ability to integrate cells and signaling molecules into a 3-dimensional scaffold. Recent work with tissue engineered tracheal grafts (TETGs) has seen some success but their translation has been limited by graft stenosis, graft collapse, and delayed epithelialization. Read More

Application of Micro-Tech stents in malignant carinal stenosis.

Oncol Lett 2019 Apr 19;17(4):3990-3996. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Department of Respiration, Beijing Tian Tan Hospital, Capital Medical University, Beijing 100050, P.R. China.

Malignant carinal stenosis is a disease process that is not always suitable for treatment with a Y-shaped stent. When one of the main bronchi is completely obstructed and cannot be recanalized, or its distal lung tissue has lost function, inserting a Y-shaped stent is infeasible. In this complex condition, a cone-shaped stent is selected to maintain the patency of the trachea and the other main bronchus. Read More

[Laryngo-Tracheal Resection as an Alternative to Permanent Tracheostomy].

Pneumologie 2019 Apr 31;73(4):211-218. Epub 2019 Jan 31.

Lungenklinik Köln-Merheim, Lehrstuhl für Thoraxchirurgie, Kliniken der Stadt Köln gGmbH, private Universität Witten/Herdecke, Köln.

Introduction:  Cervical stenosis of the trachea caused by tracheotomy, tumor or without defined reason (idiopathic) can be treated by resection and anastomosis with good early and long-term results. Involvement of the ring cartilage makes the procedure technically demanding and increases the risk of morbidity. We describe our technique of laryngotracheal resection and reconstruction and compare the perioperative results with standard tracheal resection. Read More

Mouse Model of Tracheal Replacement With Electrospun Nanofiber Scaffolds.

Ann Otol Rhinol Laryngol 2019 May 30;128(5):391-400. Epub 2019 Jan 30.

1 Center for Regenerative Medicine, Research Institute at Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, Ohio, USA.

Objectives: The clinical experience with tissue-engineered tracheal grafts (TETGs) has been fraught with graft stenosis and delayed epithelialization. A mouse model of orthotopic replacement that recapitulates the clinical findings would facilitate the study of the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying graft stenosis.

Methods: Electrospun nanofiber tracheal scaffolds were created using nonresorbable (polyethylene terephthalate + polyurethane) and co-electrospun resorbable (polylactide-co-caprolactone/polyglycolic acid) polymers (n = 10/group). Read More

Fatal vocal cord granuloma after orthognathic surgery.

J Dent Anesth Pain Med 2018 Dec 28;18(6):375-378. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

Department of Dental Anesthesia and Pain Medicine, School of Dentistry, Pusan National University, Dental Research Institute, Yangsan, Republic of Korea.

Endotracheal intubation is commonly associated with laryngeal injury that often resolves spontaneously without any complication. However, stenosis or granulomatous lesions are generally found on the tracheal wall or vocal process at the tube cuff level, caused by excessive cuff pressure. We present a case of fatal vocal cord granuloma leading to dyspnea following orthognathic surgery and sustained intubation for 14 hours. Read More
