Feasibility of lung cancer RNA acquisition from a single transbronchial or transthoracic needle pass (FASTT trial).

Lung Cancer 2019 Jan 20;127:6-11. Epub 2018 Nov 20.

Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center, Winston-Salem, NC, United States; W.G. (Bill) Hefner VA Medical Center, Salisbury, NC, United States. Electronic address:

Introduction: RNA isolation from tumor tissue is used for biomarker analyses and validation. Limited diagnostic material from small volume biopsies combined with an increasing demand for standard histologic, molecular characterization, and next generation sequencing applications often leads to limited material for research. We sought to evaluate small volume sampling of lung cancer tissue collected from a single needle pass during a diagnostic procedure and determine if it can provide RNA of acceptable quantity and quality.

Purpose To evaluate the malignancy risk of lung lesions that show nondiagnostic results at transthoracic needle biopsy (PTNB) of the lung and to identify any malignancy-associated risk factors in each nondiagnostic category. Materials and Methods In this retrospective study, 9384 initial PTNBs (9239 patients [mean age, 65 years; age range, 20-99 years] consisting of 5729 men [mean age, 66 years; age range, 20-99 years] and 3510 women [mean age, 63 years; age range, 20-94 years]) were performed in eight institutions between January 2010 and December 2014. PTNB results were categorized as diagnostic (malignant or specifically benign) or nondiagnostic (nonspecific benign pathologic findings, atypical cells, or insufficient specimen), and the proportion of final malignant diagnoses per nondiagnostic category was obtained.

Pleomorphic carcinoma of the lung mimicking synchronous pulmonary adenocarcinoma and small bowel sarcoma.

Ann Thorac Med 2018 Oct-Dec;13(4):251-253

Department of Pathology, Kyung Hee University Hospital at Gangdong, College of Medicine, Kyung Hee University, Seoul, Korea.

Pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma is defined as a nonsmall cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) that contains at least 10% sarcomatoid components. We report a case of pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma of which only the sarcomatoid component metastasized to the small bowel and adenocarcinoma was identified on percutaneous transthoracic needle biopsy (PTNB). We suggest that if an NSCLC is diagnosed by PTNB and a sarcoma is found at another site, or vice versa, pulmonary pleomorphic carcinoma with a single metastasis should be considered as a differential diagnosis to establish the best effective treatment plan.

Department of Medical Imaging, Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University, London, Ontario, Canada; Department of Radiology, St. Joseph Health Centre, London, Ontario, Canada.

Purpose: To determine if saline tract injection and rapid patient rollover following computed tomography (CT)-guided transthoracic needle biopsy (TTNB) affects pneumothorax incidence and size.

Methods: A retrospective cohort design was used to compare 278 patients who underwent post-biopsy saline injection and rapid rollover so that the biopsy site was dependent (N = 180) to a control group with routine post-biopsy care (N = 98).

From the Department of Nuclear Medicine, Hebei General Hospital, Shijiazhuang, China.

A 74-year-old man with multiple soft tissue lesions in the lung, which were suspected to be metastatic neoplasms, underwent F-FDG PET/CT scan to detect primary malignancy. The images demonstrated that the lung and 2 retroperitoneal lymph nodes were the only affected organ or tissues with suspected primary lung neoplasms.

Management of lung nodules in Brazil-assessment of realities, beliefs and attitudes: a study by the Brazilian Society of Thoracic Surgery (SBCT), the Brazilian Thoracic Society (SBPT) and the Brazilian College of Radiology (CBR).

J Thorac Dis 2018 May;10(5):2849-2856

Pulmonary Division, Instituto do Coracao, Hospital das Clinicas HCFMUSP, Faculdade de Medicina, Universidade de Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Background: Pulmonary nodules are common; some are inconsequential while others are malignant. Management of solitary pulmonary nodule (SPN) in Brazil appears to be highly variable, potentially leading to suboptimal outcomes. Assessment of the variability and the association with the degree of availability of resources can provide a foundation for development of clinical guidelines for management of SPN specific for the Brazilian setting.

Diagnosing Lung Cancer: The Complexities of Obtaining a Tissue Diagnosis in the Era of Minimally Invasive and Personalised Medicine.

J Clin Med 2018 Jun 29;7(7). Epub 2018 Jun 29.

Sydney Medical School, Faculty of Medicine and Health, University of Sydney, Sydney, NSW 2050, Australia.

The role of the respiratory physician in diagnosing lung cancer has increased in complexity over the last 20 years. Adenocarcinoma is now the prevailing histopathological sub-type of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) resulting in more peripheral cancers. Conventional bronchoscopy is often not sufficient to obtain adequate tissue samples for diagnosis. Read More

One-Lung Flooding Enables Ultrasound-Guided Transthoracic Needle Biopsy of Pulmonary Nodules with High Sensitivity.

Ultrasound Med Biol 2018 07 4;44(7):1556-1562. Epub 2018 Apr 4.

Department of Thoracic and Vascular Surgery, SRH Wald-Klinikum Gera, Teaching Hospital of Friedrich-Schiller University of Jena, Gera, Germany.

Ultrasound-guided transthoracic needle biopsy (USgTTNB) can only be used for peripheral tumours that contact the pleura. Sonographic accessibility of the entire lung can be achieved using one-lung flooding. In this study, feasibility, sensitivity and complication rate of USgTTNB of lung nodules after one-lung flooding in an ex vivo and in vivo lung tumour model were assessed. Read More

Division of Thoracic Imaging and Intervention, Department of Radiology, Massachusetts General Hospital, 55 Fruit Street, Founders 202, Boston, MA 02114, USA.

Image-guided percutaneous transthoracic needle biopsy (PTNB) is a well-established and minimally invasive technique for evaluating pulmonary nodules. Implementation of a national lung screening program and increased use of chest computed tomography have contributed to the frequent identification of indeterminate pulmonary nodules that may require tissue sampling. The advent of biomarker-driven lung cancer therapy has led to increased use of repeat PTNB after diagnosis. Read More

Primary mediastinal seminoma (PMS) is a rare tumor. PMS can be morphologically related to secondary changes in the form of thymic remnants, cystic degeneration, epithelioid granulomas, fibrotic change, and syncytiotrophoblast-like cells. Ours was an interesting case where a 26-year-old male presented with an incidentally-found anterior mediastinal mass. Read More
