Acute mediastinitis is a rare infection that carries high morbidity and mortality. They are complications seen most often with deep sternal wound infections from surgeries with median sternotomies, oropharyngeal and odontogenic infections and esophageal perforations. These conditions should be promptly recognized and treated. Mediastinal granulomas are focal, mass-like lesions commonly resulting from prior granulomatous infections. They are regarded as benign, self-resolving lesions however can ...

Abstract Background Two models, the Help with the Assessment of Adenopathy in Lung cancer (HAL) and Help with Oncologic Mediastinal Evaluation for Radiation (HOMER), were recently developed to estimate the probability of nodal disease in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients as determined by endobronchial ultrasound-transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA). The objective of this study was to prospectively externally validate both models at multiple centers. Research Question Are the HA...

PURPOSE Pulmonary function testing (PFT) in patients with tracheostomies has been perceived as difficult to perform and clinically unreliable. We studied the feasibility, quality, repeatability and clinical significance of PFT. METHODS Patients with tracheostomies that underwent PFT from January 1, 2010 to February 29, 2012 were identified. Clinical history and PFT data were reviewed retrospectively. RESULTS Fifty patients (88% men) were identified. Forty-seven (94%) patients were able to perfor...

Background The main goal of management in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) and malignant pleural effusion (MPE) is palliation. Patients with MPE and actionable mutations, because their disease is expected to respond quickly and markedly to targeted therapy, are less likely than those without actionable mutations to receive definitive MPE management. Whether such management is indicated in these patients is unclear. Research Questions What is the time to ipsilateral MPE recurrence...

Abstract Background Pulmonary carcinoids, which are well-differentiated lung neuroendocrine carcinomas, account for only 1–2 % of primary lung malignancies. Although fluorodeoxyglucose positron-emission tomography/computed tomography performs poorly in the identification of mediastinal lymph node metastases, particularly for pulmonary carcinoids, endobronchial ultrasound-guided (EBUS) transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA) may be a useful means of preoperative nodal assessment in patients with ...

Abstract Background Despite the many advances in peripheral bronchoscopy, its diagnostic yield remains suboptimal. With the use of cone-beam CT we have recently found atelectasis mimicking lung tumors or obscuring them when using radial-probe endobronchial ultrasound (RP-EBUS), but its incidence remains unknown. Research Question Incidence, anatomic location, and risk factors for developing atelectasis during bronchoscopy under general anesthesia. Study Design And Methods: Prospective observatio...

Abstract Background Patients who have pleural effusions typically undergo thoracentesis with examination of pleural fluid in their initial assessment. However, limited data are available on the diagnostic yield of pleural fluid bacterial cultures, fungal and acid-fast bacilli (AFB) smear and cultures in cancer patients. Methods We performed a retrospective cohort study of consecutive patients who had new onset pleural effusions and underwent an initial thoracentesis. The primary outcome was diag...
