Previous research has shown that the built environment plays a crucial role for health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and health care utilization. But, there is limited evidence on the independence of this association from lifestyle and social environment. The objective of this cross-sectional study was to investigate these associations, independent of the social environment, physical activity and body mass index (BMI). We used data from the third follow-up of the Swiss study on Air Pollution a...

Abstract Objective The soluble guanylate cyclase stimulator riociguat is approved for the treatment of adult patients with pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) and inoperable or persistent/recurrent chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension following Phase 3 randomized trials. The EXPosurE Registry RiociguaT in patients with pulmonary hypertension (EXPERT) study was designed to monitor the long-term safety of riociguat in clinical practice. Methods EXPERT was an international, multicenter, ...

Epidemiological studies have shown an increased respiratory morbidity and mortality as a consequence of exposure to air pollution. Short term exposure to air pollution is associated with an increased respiratory mortality and exacerbation of respiratory symptoms. Long term exposure to air pollution is associated with a progressive lung function decline as well as the development of chronic pulmonary diseases. In this article, we analyze the impact of major atmospheric pollutants on respiratory h...
Le depistage d’une infection tuberculeuse latente (ITL) est ­recommande chez les patients immunosupprimes en raison du risque accru de la progression de l’ITL vers la tuberculose active. Son depistage se fait notamment a l’aide de tests immunologiques indirects que sont le test de sensibilite a la tuberculine (TST) et les tests de detection de production de l’interferon-gamma (IGRA). Les IGRA semblent montrer une performance ­superieure par rapport au TST dans le depistage d’une ITL. Mais leur u...
The diagnosis of interstitial lung disease (ILD) is challenging and relies on a multidisciplinary discussion involving clinical, radiological and sometimes histological features. Bronchoscopic lung cryobiopsies have emerged as a new minimally invasive method of lung sampling and an alternative to surgical lung biopsies. A good diagnostic performance and excellent safety profile make it an interesting and worthful procedure which could decrease the number of patients without proper diagnosis and ...

Large fragments of a transplanted lung from living lung recipients are rarely available. The case presented is that of a patient who underwent lingulectomy after a gunshot trauma. We describe the patchy panel of histological findings encountered in the resected specimen, ranging from normal lung to zones of acute and chronic rejection. Such contrasting findings have already been described, but should prompt us to exercise caution when interpreting histological results of routine transbronchial b...
