    There are multiple causes of endobronchial lesions. Endobronchial foreign bodies may be mistaken as endobronchial tumours in adults and the diagnosis may be delayed. We hereby present the case of an 89 year-old man with an endobronchial lesion obliterating the right lower lobe bronchus. By...

    OBJECTIVES To re-evaluate the efficacy of fluoroscopy-assisted thoracoscopic resection after computed tomography (CT)-guided bronchoscopic metallic coil marking (FATS-CM), which was our original method for small peripheral pulmonary lesions. METHODS Fifty-eight patients with 63 lesions underwent...

  • The role of flexible fibreoptic bronchoscopy in evaluation of pulmonary diseases in children with congenital cardiac disease. Efrati, Ori; Gonik, Udi; Modan-Moses, Dalit; Bielorai, Bella; Barak, Asher; Vardi, Amir; Paret, Gideon; Mishaly, David; Toren, Amos // Cardiology in the Young;Apr2007, Vol. 17 Issue 2, p140 

    Background: Diseases of the lungs and airways can be life-threatening in patients with congenital cardiac disease. External compression, and tracheobronchomalacia, as well as pathology of the large airways, can cause respiratory symptoms such as wheezing, stridor, fever, and dyspnoea, along with...

    When foreign body aspiration is suspected in children, rigid and/or flexible bronchoscopy should be performed immediately. Rigid bronchoscopy is the first choice for both the diagnosis and treatment of most likely foreign body aspiration, but it may fail to achieve right upper lobe bronchi or...

    Background: Diagnosis of sputum/smear-negative pulmonary tuberculosis patients can be both challenging and time consuming with many patients being put on empirical anti-tubercular treatment. Fibreoptic bronchoscopy may provide a confirmative and early diagnosis in such patients. Aims: To assess...

  • Endobronchial Ultrasound Plus Fluoroscopy Versus Fluoroscopy-Guided Bronchoscopy: A Comparison of Diagnostic Yields in Peripheral Pulmonary Lesions. Boonsarngsuk, Viboon; Raweelert, Pensupa; Juthakarn, Sabaithip // Lung;Apr2012, Vol. 190 Issue 2, p233 

    Background: Even though fluoroscopy-guided bronchoscopy has been well developed, the diagnostic yield of peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPLs) remains unsatisfying. Therefore, endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) has been implemented recently to enhance the possibility of attaining true diagnosis....
