  • Relationship between CHA2DS2-VASc and CHADS2 scores with pulmonary
           hypertension in patients with acute pulmonary embolism

    • Authors: Samet Yilmaz, Yalin Tolga Yaylali, Mevlüt Serdar Kuyumcu, Sefa Ünal, Hande Senol, Omac Tufekcioglu
      Abstract: Introduction: Pulmonary hypertension (PH) is the most important prognostic factor after acute pulmonary embolism (PE). Therefore, determination of patients who will develop PH after acute PE is crucial.  The aim of the present study was to evaluate the predictive value of the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores for PH in patients with acute PE.
      Material and methods: Seventy-nine adults who presented with acute PE, had an admission systolic pulmonary artery pressure (sPAP) measured on echocardiogram and no previous history of PE, were retrospectively identified from the computerized database. 31 patients who had sPAP ≤ 40 mm Hg were categorized as a  “normal pulmonary pressure” group, whereas 48 patients who had sPAP > 40 mm Hg were categorized as a “PH” group.
      Results: SPAP was > 40 mm Hg in 48 patients (60.8%), with a mean sPAP of 60.9 ± 16.1 mm Hg (median = 60, min–max = 41–100 mm Hg). In multivariate logistic regression models adjusted for CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc score components, only age was found to be related with the development of PH. SPAP was weakly positively correlated with CHADS2 (p = 0.047; r = 0.224) and CHA2DS2-VASc (p = 0.023; r = 0.256) scores. SPAP values were increasing with the severity of the scores.
      Conclusions: Both CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores could be useful in the determination of which patients should be closely followed up in order to prevent the development of PH after acute PE.

  • Social networks and traditional metrics of impact in pulmonary medicine
           journals: a correlation study

    • Authors: Daniela Patino-Hernandez, Daniel Gerardo Fernández-Ávila, Carlos Andrés Celis-Preciado, Oscar Mauricio Munoz-Velandia
      Abstract: Introduction: The Scimago Journal Rank (SJR) impact factor is extensively used. However, as the Internet has become widely available, new metrics are coming into play. Our research aims to determine whether a correlation  between the SJR impact factor and metrics reflecting social media activity does exist.
      Materials and methods: We have used pulmonary medicine journals indexed in the SJR. Variables of social network usage have been extracted from verified accounts. Bivariate analyses have been performed with the Mann-Whitney U tests, the correlation between social media-derived variables and the SJR impact factor have been assessed with the Spearman correlation coefficient. Results are presented before and after adjustment for the years since the creation of the accounts.
      Results: From 130 journals, 38 had at least one social network account, Twitter being the most commonly used (22.85%). The H index was higher in journals with social network accounts (Median 60 vs 17; p < 0.01). The global correlation between the SJR and the number of followers on Twitter revealed moderate agreement (r = 0.46; p < 0.01), which was excellent in open access journals (rs = 0.90; p < 0.05).
      Conclusions: The use of social networks is directly correlated with traditional indicators of scientific impact. The joint use of alternative and traditional metrics may be useful for journals in order to generate strategies aiming to increase their audience, as well as for researchers when deciding about the best option of disseminating their articles.

  • Does bronchiectasis affect COPD comorbidities'

    • Authors: Adam Nowiński, Damian Korzybski, Michał Bednarek, Anna Goljan-Geremek, Elżbieta Puścińska, Paweł Śliwiński
      Abstract: Introduction: COPD and bronchiectasis, chronic inflammation disorders of the bronchial tree through the mechanism of 'spill-over' of inflammatory mediators, may lead to systemic manifestations of illness of the respiratory system and comorbidities. The aim of the study was to evaluate the frequency of coexisting chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and bronchiectasis and influence of bronchiectasis on COPD comorbid diseases.
      Material and methods: A post-hoc cross-sectional analysis of cohort study of 288 consecutive patients hospitalized due to acute exacerbation of COPD was performed.
      Results: 177 males (61.5%) and 111 females (38.5%) with mean age = 71.0 8 ± 8.9 yrs, FEV1 % pred. = 34.6 ± 16.8 with COPD diagnosis were studied. In this group, 29 (10.1%) patients presented with bronchiectasis confirmed by HRCT scan. COPD patients with and without bronchiectasis had similar Charlson index results (2.5 vs 2.1, p=0.05). COPD patients with bronchiectasis required longer hospitalization during exacerbation. COPD patients with bronchiectasis significantly more often than patients without this comorbidity revealed the features of colonization with P. aeruginosa (OR = 4.17, p = 0.02).
      Conclusions: Bronchiectasis is a relatively common comorbidity in COPD patients. COPD patients with bronchiectasis are more frequently colonized with P. aruginosa comparing to non-bronchiectasis COPD patients. We did not confirm the influence of bronchiectasis on COPD comorbidities.

  • Diagnostic and treatment standards in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis in the
           era of antifibrotic drugs in Poland: A real-world practice survey

    • Authors: Sebastian Majewski, Katarzyna Lewandowska, Magdalena Maria Martusewicz-Boros, Wojciech Jerzy Piotrowski
      Abstract: Background Currently, only two drugs have been shown to modify the inevitable natural history of idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). Changes in the reimbursement policy for antifibrotic drugs in Poland have led to the availability of pirfenidone from January 2017 and nintedanib from March 2018 for the treatment of Polish patients with IPF. This study aimed to evaluate the possible changes and shortcomings in the clinical practice standards in IPF in the era of access to antifibrotic therapy in Poland. Methods A real-world data survey was performed among physicians attending the Polish Respiratory Society Congress held in May 2018. The present survey was a follow-up to the previous survey undertaken in 2016, before the availability of antifibrotics in Poland. Results A total of 99 physicians participated in the survey, among which 80% were pulmonologists. The majority of participants (83%) represented hospital-based clinicians and most of them (93%) were involved in interstitial lung diseases (ILD) management. As many as 63% of the respondents elaborate the final diagnosis of IPF working with the expert radiologist routinely, 47% do that in the cooperation with other pulmonologists, and if a biopsy was performed 39% discuss its results with the expert pathologist. Bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) and surgical lung biopsy (SLB) would never be recommended in the differential diagnosis of IPF by 9% and 16% of the respondents, respectively. Corticosteroids (CS) or a combination of CS and immunosuppressants (IS) is still recommended by 22% of participants. Proton pump inhibitors (PPI) in the case of symptomatic GERD are prescribed by 44% of the respondents, and 12% prescribe PPI regardless of GERD symptoms. Pirfenidone is used by 70%, and nintedanib by 48% of the respondents. Only 39% of the respondents refer patients with IPF to professional rehabilitation centers. Conclusions The level of cooperation between pulmonologists and other specialists in the diagnostic workup of IPF is unsatisfactory. IPF treatment practices in the era of access to effective drugs in Poland require immediate improvement. There is an urgent need to develop the local Polish practical guidelines to improve the management of IPF.

  • Advances in the diagnosis and management of pulmonary aspergillosis

    • Authors: Yuqing Gao, Ayman Soubani
      Abstract: Aspergillus is a mould that is ubiquitous in nature and may lead to a variety of infectious and allergic diseases depending on the host's immune status or pulmonary structure. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis occurs primarily in patients with severe immunodeficiency. The significance of this infection has dramatically increased with growing numbers of patients with impaired immune state associated with the management of malignancy, organ transplantation, autoimmune and inflammatory conditions; critically ill patients appear to be at an increased risk as well. The introduction of new noninvasive tests, combined with more effective and better-tolerated antifungal agents, has resulted in lower mortality rates associated with this infection. Chronic pulmonary aspergillosis is a locally invasive disease described in patients with chronic lung disease or mild immunodeficiency. Recently, the European Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases provided a more robust sub-classification of this entity that allows for a straightforward approach to diagnosis and management. Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, a hypersensitivity reaction to Aspergillus antigens, is generally seen in patients with atopy, asthma or cystic fibrosis. This review provides an update on the evolving epidemiology and risk factors of the major manifestations of Aspergillus lung disease and the clinical manifestations that should prompt the clinician to consider these conditions. It also details the role of noninvasive tests in the diagnosis of Aspergillus related lung diseases and advances in the management of these disorders.

  • Atypical manifestations of granulomatosis with polyangiitis: the
           diagnostic challenge for pulmonologists

    • Authors: Amelia Szymanowska-Narloch, Dariusz Gawryluk, Katarzyna Błasińska-Przerwa, Alicja Siemińska
      Abstract: This is a review considering atypical manifestations of granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA). Virtually any organ can be affected, and in some patients, GPA can manifest unusually. Since thoracic involvement of GPA often predominates, the first who might be expected to establish a diagnosis are pulmonary specialists. We would like to familiarize pulmonary specialists with several extra-ELK (E: ear-nose-throat; L: lung; K: kidney) involvements of the disease. We describe sites rarely affected by GPA like the breast, skeletal system, orbit and eye, heart and vessels, central nervous system, urogenital system as well as endocrine and gastrointestinal tract involvement.

  • Exogenous lipoid pneumonia induced by nasal instillation of paraffin oil

    • Authors: Małgorzata Bartosiewicz, Katarzyna Zimna, Katarzyna Lewandowska, Małgorzata Sobiecka, Małgorzata Dybowska, Piotr Radwan-Rohrenschef, Monika Szturmowicz, Witold Tomkowski
      Abstract: Lipoid pneumonia is a rare pulmonary disease, classified in terms of the source of lipid exposure into two variants: exogenous and endogenous. We present a patient with exogenous lipoid pneumonia, acquired after chronic exposure to paraffin oil-containing nasal drops. The diagnosis was established by demonstration of lipid-laden macrophages in bronchoalveolar lavage, chest computed tomography results and a history of lipid exposure.

  • Difficulties in recognizing granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) in
           elderly patients undergoing diagnostic thoracotomy twice — a report of
           two cases

    • Authors: Justyna Fijołek, Elżbieta Wiatr, Dariusz Gawryluk, Renata Langfort, Kazimierz Roszkowski-Śliż
      Abstract: Granulomatosis with polyangiitis (GPA) is defined as a necrotizing granulomatous inflammation usually involving the upper and lower respiratory tract with necrotizing vasculitis affecting predominantly small to medium vessels. Because of non-specific symptoms, its radiological presentation, and the diversity of its clinical expression, it is not uncommon to for it to be misdiagnosed, especially in the elderly. Although biopsy and histological examination seem to be essential for GPA diagnosis, their results are sometimes ambiguous and not helpful in making a decision. In this report, we present difficulties in the recognition of GPA in two elderly patients in whom, despite twice performing a diagnostic thoracotomy, GPA was recognized almost 4 and 6 years after the first symptoms.

  • Not everything is what it seems: malignant pleural mesothelioma mimicking
           lung cancer

    • Authors: Elena Prisciandaro, Lara Girelli, Cristiano Rampinelli, Mariacristina Ghioni, Lorenzo Spaggiari
      Abstract: Malignant pleural mesothelioma usually arises from the pleural surface and progressively encases the lungs. Pulmonary involvement generally occurs at an advanced stage, while intraparenchymal nodules, in the absence of pleural lesions, constitute a less frequent presentation. We describe the case of a patient with multiple bilateral pulmonary nodules, mediastinal lymphadenopathies and left pleural effusion in the absence of pleural lesions, simulating advanced stage lung cancer. Thoracoscopic inspection did not detect any lesions. Pathological examination on one pulmonary nodule revealed malignant pleural mesothelioma. Despite its rarity, intraparenchymal malignant pleural mesothelioma should always be taken into account, when  lung nodules are present, to prevent misdiagnosis and avoid delayed treatment

    • Authors: Ilias C Papanikolaou, Andreas Afthinos, Alexandra Papoudou-Bai, Panagiotis Repousis
      Abstract: Interstitial lung diseases are very heterogeneous. We present a case of usual interstitial pneumonia pattern on high resolution computed tomography of the chest that was diagnosed successfully after multi-disciplinary discussion. Pulmonologists should be aware of the pitfalls in the diagnostic management of interstitial lung diseases, especially in cases with atypical clinical presentation and systemic signs and symptoms.

  • Should I stay or should I go' Pulmonary embolism and air travel

    • Authors: Ioannis Pantazopoulos, Konstantinos Gourgoulianis
      Abstract: Many respiratory conditions can affect a passenger’s fitness to fly with pulmonary embolism being the most debatable. A major question that respiratory physicians frequently have to answer, mostly with visitors from overseas who need to be repatriated following diagnosis of pulmonary embolism, is about the right time to “fly with a clot”. Risk of flying after being diagnosed with pulmonary embolism is not the same for all patients and in every case we should take into consideration the risk stratification on presentation and the PaO2 level.
