Endoscopic control of gastric emptying after administration of intravenous erythromycin in an awake patient scheduled for urgent rigid bronchoscopy.

BMJ Case Rep 2019 Feb 26;12(2). Epub 2019 Feb 26.

Division of Anaesthesiology, Geneva University Hospitals, Geneva, Switzerland.

Certain interventional pulmonology procedures such as the placement of a tracheal stent or resection of stenosing tracheal tumours require rigid bronchoscopy under general anaesthesia. Unlike an endotracheal tube with a cuff, the rigid bronchoscope only partially protects the airway from bronchoaspiration. For this reason, this procedure is performed on an elective basis in fasted patients. Read More

VivaSight™ single-lumen tube guided bronchial blocker placement for one-lung ventilation in a patient with a tracheal tumor under video-assisted transthoracic surgery: a case report.

BMC Anesthesiol 2019 Jan 5;19(1). Epub 2019 Jan 5.

Department of Anesthesiology, Tongji Hospital, Tongji Medical College, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan, 430030, China.

Background: Video-assisted transthoracic surgery (VATS) is a minimally invasive procedure that has been reported as a valid method for tracheal resection and reconstruction. However, for patients with tracheal tumors, one-lung ventilation during VATS is difficult to achieve, and utilizing a double-lumen tube is not applicable in these types of situations. When using a bronchial blocker, a fiberoptic bronchoscope is required to verify the position of bronchial blocker, though the repeated use of the fiberoptic bronchoscope increases the risk of tumor rupture and hemorrhage.

Transthoracic radiofrequency ablation for hepatic tumor located beneath the diaphragm under one-lung ventilation: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2018 Dec;97(51):e13863

Department of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine, College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, Korea.

Rationale: Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) has become the reliable, effective, and less invasive treatment for small primary or metastatic hepatic tumors. Hepatic tumors that located immediately beneath the diaphragm are difficult to treat with percutaneous RFA due to poor visualization by percutaneous ultrasonography and the close location of the heart or lung. A transthoracic approach has been proposed to be an alternative for hepatic tumors located beneath the diaphragm that are difficult to access by conventional percutaneous or laparoscopic approaches.

Insertion of a Dumon Y-stent via a permanent tracheostoma without using a rigid bronchoscope.

BMJ Case Rep 2018 Nov 28;11(1). Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Division of General Thoracic Surgery, Department of Surgery, Shiga University of Medical Science, Otsu, Japan.

A 63-year-old man who had received a permanent tracheostoma after oesophageal cancer surgery developed fistulas in the left and right main bronchi and suffered repeated aspiration pneumonia. Placing an indwelling Dumon Y-stent using a rigid bronchoscope is an option to treat fistula and stenosis at the tracheal bifurcation, but in some cases, it may be difficult to use a rigid bronchoscope in patients with a permanent tracheostoma. In this study, we report placing a Dumon Y-stent in a patient with a permanent tracheostoma using a specially modified stent and forceps instead of a rigid bronchoscope. Read More

A preclinical micro-computed tomography database including 3D whole body organ segmentations.

Sci Data 2018 12 18;5:180294. Epub 2018 Dec 18.

Institute for Experimental Molecular Imaging, University Hospital Aachen, Forckenbeckstr. 55, 52074 Aachen, Germany.

The gold-standard of preclinical micro-computed tomography (μCT) data processing is still manual delineation of complete organs or regions by specialists. However, this method is time-consuming, error-prone, has limited reproducibility, and therefore is not suitable for large-scale data analysis. Unfortunately, robust and accurate automated whole body segmentation algorithms are still missing. Read More
