Thoracoscopic treatment of iatrogenic injuries of the tracheobronchial tree: a retrospective analysis of 5 cases and review of the literature.

Wideochir Inne Tech Maloinwazyjne 2022 Mar 30;17(1):240-244. Epub 2021 Jun 30.

Department of Thoracic Surgery, Brest Regional Hospital, Brest, Belarus.

Introduction: Iatrogenic injuries to the trachea and main bronchi present one of the most dramatic complications traditionally treated by thoracotomy and transcervical-transtracheal approaches but almost never by video-assisted thoracic surgery.

Aim: To evaluate our experience in a video-assisted thoracic surgery repair of iatrogenic tracheal lacerations.

Material And Methods: The group under analysis consisted of 5 consecutive patients (1 male, mean age: 52 years, range: 32-56 years) who were treated for postintubation and intraoperative damage to the tracheobronchial tree using video-assisted thoracic surgery within the period 2015-2018.

Veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation used as an adjunct in the surgical management of acquired and iatrogenic tracheobronchial pathology.

Minerva Surg 2022 Mar 1. Epub 2022 Mar 1.

Department of Cardiothoracic Anaesthesia, Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, Manchester, UK.

Background: Surgical repair of tracheobronchial tree injuries is challenging due to the difficulties associated with providing perioperative ventilatory support. Veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (V-V ECMO) is a recognised treatment modality for managing respiratory failure. Its use has expanded to include offering respiratory support for patients requiring surgery on the tracheobronchial tree. Read More

Eur Respir Rev 2022 Mar 25;31(163). Epub 2022 Jan 25.

Université Côte d'Azur, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Nice, Dept of Pulmonary Medicine and Oncology, Nice, France.

Tracheobronchial injury is a heterogeneous entity comprising multiple rare and potentially life-threatening scenarios. We performed a systematic literature review focusing on post-intubation tracheal injuries (PiTIs) and post-traumatic tracheobronchial injuries (PTTBIs).PiTIs are often longitudinal lacerations of the middle third of the membranous trachea.

Asymptomatic Spontaneous Pneumopericardium, Pneumomediastinum, and Subcutaneous Emphysema: A Case Report of an Incidental Rare Presentation.

Cureus 2021 Dec 16;13(12):e20464. Epub 2021 Dec 16.

Internal Medicine, Ocala Regional Medical Center (ORMC), Ocala, USA.

Pneumopericardium (PP), pneumomediastinum (PM), epidural pneumatosis, and subcutaneous emphysema (SE) are identified by the existence of free air or gas in the associated spaces. They are normally self-limited unless tension pneumothorax, tension PM, cardiac herniation, air tamponade, and esophageal rupture accompany these disorders. PM and PP can be divided into "spontaneous" or "secondary" based on the preceding etiologies. Read More

[Pneumomediastinum in Severe COVID-19-disease: a Case Series of Eight Patients].

Zentralbl Chir 2021 Dec 6;146(6):612-616. Epub 2021 Dec 6.

Klinik für Herz- und Thoraxchirurgie, Universitätsklinikum Augsburg, Augsburg, Deutschland.

The most common cause of pneumomediastinum is trauma. However, in the context of COVID-19 pneumonia, this clinical picture is more often found in patients without underlying exogenous injury. Pathophysiologically, a cause analogous to the Macklin effect is suspected here, in which tears at the alveolar level lead to emphysema along the tracheobronchial tree with concentrating in the mediastinum.

Use of an Insulation-Tipped Knife during Rigid Bronchoscopic Treatment of Benign Tracheobronchial Stenosis.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 Mar 8;57(3). Epub 2021 Mar 8.

Department of Internal Medicine, Jeju National University Hospital, Jeju National University School of Medicine, Jeju 63241, Korea.

Tracheal or bronchial tears are potential complications of rigid bronchoscopy. This study aimed to investigate the acute complications and outcomes of using an insulation-tipped (IT) knife in combination with rigid bronchoscopic dilatation for treating benign tracheobronchial stenosis. We conducted a chart review of patients with benign tracheobronchial stenosis who were treated with rigid bronchoscopy and an IT knife at two referral centers. Read More

Natural closing of a tracheal tear caused by intubation in a patient with relapsing polychondritis.

Respirol Case Rep 2021 Apr 22;9(4):e00721. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

Division of Respiratory Diseases, Department of Internal Medicine St. Marianna University School of Medicine Kawasaki Japan.

Relapsing polychondritis (RP) often develops into severe tracheobronchial stenosis with malacia. Although tracheal tears rarely occur by intubation, treatment decisions for tears can be difficult due to airway inflammation in RP patients. In this case, due to advanced age and immunosuppressive treatment, we decided against invasive surgery. Read More

Conservative management of airway tear as a complication of silicone endobronchial stenting in bronchomalacia secondary to endobronchial tuberculosis.

Respirol Case Rep 2020 Dec 5;8(9):e00684. Epub 2020 Nov 5.

Department of Pulmonology Serdang Hospital Kajang Malaysia.

Tracheobronchial stenosis due to tuberculosis (TSTB) is a potentially debilitating complication of endobronchial tuberculosis (EBTB). Endobronchial interventions including silicone stent insertion is an acceptable approach to improve quality of life among patients with TSTB. However, little is known about the optimal management strategy for patients with bronchomalacia secondary to EBTB (B-EBTB) and whether stent-related complication rates are higher among this group of patients.

Lipocalin-1 Expression as a Prognosticator Marker of Survival in Breast Cancer Patients.

Breast Care (Basel) 2020 Jun 8;15(3):272-280. Epub 2019 Oct 8.

Department of Breast Surgery, China-Japan Union Hospital of Jilin University, Changchun, China.

Purpose: LCN1 (lipocalin-1), a gene that encodes tear lipocalin (or von Ebner's gland protein), is mainly expressed in secretory glands and tissues, such as the lachrymal and lingual gland, and nasal, mammary, and tracheobronchial mucosae. Analysis of the Cancer Genome Atlas (TCGA) Breast Carcinoma (BRCA) level 3 data revealed a relationship between LCN1 expression and survival in breast cancer patients.

Methods: The χ test and Fisher exact test were applied to analyze the clinical data and RNA sequencing expression data, and the association between LCN1 expression and clinicopathologic features was determined. Read More

Anaesthetic management of intraoperative tracheo-bronchial injury.

Respir Med Case Rep 2020 18;29:100970. Epub 2019 Nov 18.

Department of Anesthesia & Intensive Care, Command Hospital, Chandimandir, 134107, India.

Intraoperative tracheobronchial injury (TBI) may manifest clinically as pneumothorax, pneumomediastinum, subcutaneous emphysema, cyanosis, and respiratory insufficiency and has serious implications if it remains undetected or is managed improperly. The outcome of such injuries is affected by the extent of the lesion, pulmonary status & the surgical reconstruction undertaken. The recommended airway management of an intraoperative tracheal tear is to bypass the injured side by intubating the healthy bronchus with a single lumen endotracheal tube (ETT) and the use of a bronchial blocker or double lumen endotracheal tube (DLT) and becomes a very challenging situation.

A paediatric case of severe tracheobronchial injury successfully treated surgically after early CT diagnosis and ECMO safely performed in the hybrid emergency room.

Scand J Trauma Resusc Emerg Med 2019 Apr 23;27(1):49. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

Department of Emergency and Critical Care Medicine, Kansai Medical University Hospital, 2-3-1 Shinmachi, Hirakata, Osaka, 573-1191, Japan.

Background: In paediatric trauma patients, tracheobronchial injury can be a rare, life-threatening trauma. In 2011, we instituted a new trauma workflow concept called the hybrid emergency room (Hybrid ER) that combines a sliding CT scanning system with interventional radiology features to permit CT examination and emergency therapeutic intervention without moving the patient. Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) can lead to cannula-related complications. Read More
