Bronchial thermoplasty (BT) is an interventional endoscopic treatment for severe bronchial asthma. Some studies have shown the clinical efficacy of this intervention, but its cost-effectiveness is unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of BT. We collected data from the medical records of 16 Japanese patients who were treated with BT between February 2015 and April 2017, and compared asthma-related medical expenses between the year preceding and the year following B...

Abstract Diffuse pulmonary lymphangiomatosis (DPL) is a rare lymphatic disease that can cause diverse respiratory symptoms. A 22-year-old man, whose chest CT had shown an abnormality for years, presented with acute respiratory failure due to the abrupt onset of hemoptysis. The diagnosis of DPL was confirmed by surgical lung biopsy and lymphangiography. Histopathological investigation showed dilated vascular and lymphatic vessels. DPL can cause acute and life-threatening symptoms during its chron...

Introduction Bronchial thermoplasty (BT) is a bronchoscopic procedure that involves the delivery of thermal radiofrequency energy to the bronchial wall for treating severe asthma. It has been suggested that too many radiofrequency activations could induce serious adverse events (SAEs) at an early stage. We aimed to examine the number of radiofrequency activations at each session and early lung function changes from baseline to determine whether these are related to SAEs.

: Chylothorax is the accumulation of lipid pleural effusion. Few reports have described chylothorax caused by gastric cancer. A 45-year-old woman presented with progressive lymphedema and bilateral chylothorax. Although repetitive thoracentesis was performed to relieve her dyspnea, swelling of her axillary lymph nodes became significant. Positron emission tomography/computed tomography demonstrated the accumulation of 18F-fluorodeoxyglucose in these nodes, and a lymph node biopsy showed signet r...

: Bronchial thermoplasty (BT), which delivers thermal radiofrequency to the bronchial wall, is an effective therapy for patients with severe persistent uncontrolled asthma. We herein report the case of a 47-year-old man who underwent BT for uncontrolled severe asthma. After BT, his asthma control, asthma-related quality of life, and pulmonary function improved. Furthermore, a histologic examination of transbronchial biopsy specimens revealed a decrease in goblet cell hyperplasia and the smooth m...

: Maximum standard uptake value (SUVmax) of F-18-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography-computed tomography (FDG-PET/CT) is reportedly useful for evaluating regional lymph nodes (RLNs) of non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC) to predict malignancy. However, it is difficult for clinicians to measure SUVmax (mSUVmax) as calculated by a workstation.We assessed the utility of simplified SUVmax (sSUVmax) in screening RLNs for pathologic malignancy. The highest color was visually defined in the ...
