  • Pleural Fluid Cytokine Levels at Baseline and Over Time are Associated
           With Time to IPC Removal: An Exploratory Study
    • Authors: Grosu; Horiana B.; Lu, Wei; Ost, David E.; Vial, Macarena R.; Hernandez, Mike; Ghosh, Natasha; Noor, Laila; Hasan, Arain M.; Bashoura, Lara; Faiz, Saadia; Balachandran, Dave; Casal, Roberto; Eapen, George; Shannon, Vickie; Sheshadri, Ajay; Tang, Ximing; Rahman, Najib; Wistuba, Ignacio I.
      Abstract: imageBackground: The behavior of pleural fluid cytokine (PFCs) levels and their association with pleurodesis after indwelling pleural catheter (IPC) placement is unknown.Objective: A prospective exploratory study was conducted to obtain preliminary data on PFC levels after IPC placement.Methods: The PFC panel consisted of 4 cytokines [interleukin -8 (IL-8), vascular endothelial growth factor, total (but not activated) transforming growth factor betas, and basic fibroblast growth factor], measured across 5 time points (T0: insertion; T1: 24 to 48 h; T2: 72 to 96 h; T3: 1 wk; and T4: 2 wk). Profile plots were used to identify patterns of change of PFC levels. Correlation matrices for each PFC over time were computed, and area under the curve (AUC) categories were used to compare the cumulative incidence of IPC removal. Auto pleurodesis was defined as elective catheter removal because of decreased drainage within 90 days of insertion.Results: A total of 22 patients provided complete data. Except for IL-8, the majority of PFCs demonstrated strong positive correlations across measurement time points. Patients with high AUCs for IL-8, basic fibroblast growth factor, and vascular endothelial growth factor had a higher cumulative incidence of IPC removal by 90 days than did patients with low AUCs.Conclusion: This is the first study to evaluate longitudinal changes of pleural cytokine levels with respect to the likelihood of IPC removal and provide early evidence that the cytokine profile may be associated with the outcome of pleurodesis induced by IPCs. However, this is an exploratory study and further studies are needed to assess if these findings can be validated in further studies.

  • Jet Ventilation Decreases Target Motion and Increases Yield of ENB
           Especially in Lesions With Negative Bronchus Sign
    • Authors: Webb; Tracey N.; Bonta, Dacian V.; Masters, Roger; Parks, Christopher; Bechara, Rabih
      Abstract: imageBackground: Electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (ENB) is used to obtain peripheral lung tissue samples for evaluation and staging of central and peripheral lung lesions. Jet ventilation delivers and maintains a sustained airway pressure at high frequency, chest wall and diaphragmatic movement is drastically reduced compared with traditional ventilation. The current study looks to examine the effectiveness of tissue sampling (diagnostic yield) while using jet ventilation on target-lesion movement when compared with traditional ventilation.Methods: A total of 36 patients received total intravenous anesthesia with both jet and traditional ventilation during ENB procedure where sensor to lesion displacement was recorded. When planning the ENB procedure, the presence or absence of a viable airway to the lesion was recorded. Sensor to lesion movement was recorded and compared for significance using χ2 and t tests, utilizing stringent P-values.Results: Overall patients with an airway to the lesion (n=23) had a higher proportion of successful diagnostic biopsies, 83% compared with those patients that lacked an airway to the lesion (n=13) 70% proportion of successful diagnostic biopsies. When using jet ventilation, the chance of nonzero displacement was 8.3% (0.14 mm), regardless of the presence of an airway. Compared with traditional ventilation, the chance of a nonzero displacement between the sensor and target-lesion was 83% (6.4 mm), independent of airway presence to the lesions.Conclusion: In patients without an airway, jet ventilation significantly decreased target displacement when compared with traditional ventilation (2 vs. 17 mm). In patients with direct airway to the lesion, jet ventilation did not significantly decrease target displacement when compared with the traditional approach.

  • Diagnostic Utility and Safety of Endobronchial Ultrasound–guided
           Transbronchial Needle Aspiration in the Elderly
    • Authors: Dhooria; Sahajal; Sehgal, Inderpaul S.; Gupta, Nalini; Prasad, Kuruswamy T.; Aggarwal, Ashutosh N.; Agarwal, Ritesh
      Abstract: imageBackground: There is limited evidence regarding the effect of age on the specimen adequacy, positivity rate of specimen on cytology (PR), and safety of endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS)-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (TBNA). The aim of this study was to investigate the utility of EBUS-TBNA in the elderly.Methods: This was a retrospective study of subjects who underwent EBUS-TBNA. We compare the specimen adequacy, PR, and the incidence of complications in the elderly (age 65 y and above) versus the younger subjects (age younger than 65 y). A multivariate logistic regression analysis was performed to identify the factors affecting the diagnostic yield.Results: Of the 1816 subjects, 258 (14.2%) were elderly. The specimen adequacy was similar between the old and the young (93.5% vs. 96.3%, P=0.053). The PR in the elderly (48.8%) was lower (P

  • Bronchoscopy for Chronic Unexplained Cough: Use of Biopsies and Cultures
           Increase Diagnostic Yield
    • Authors: Heching; Moshe; Rosengarten, Dror; Shitenberg, Dorit; Shtraichman, Osnat; Abdel-Rahman, Nader; Unterman, Avraham; Kramer, Mordechai R.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Prior studies assessing the diagnostic utility of bronchoscopy for chronic unexplained cough have focused primarily on identifying endobronchial anomalies to determine chronic cough etiology. On the basis of our institutional experience, expanding bronchoscopy to include cultures and biopsies can considerably increase its diagnostic yield for identifying the etiology of chronic unexplained cough.Materials and Methods: This retrospective review analyzed bronchoscopies conducted in our institution between 2013 and 2017. Eligibility criteria were bronchoscopies conducted for chronic unexplained cough for which no etiology had been identified before the bronchoscopy. Microbiology, pathology, and cytology results from bronchoscopy were reviewed to identify the etiology of the cough.Results: Over the study period, 169 bronchoscopies met the eligibility criteria. The average patient age at bronchoscopy was 59.7±14.8 years; 61% were female individuals. Direct visualization identified anatomic etiologies in 48 (28%) patients, most commonly tracheobronchomalacia, and less common conditions, such as tracheobronchopathia osteochondroplastica. Microbiology cultures were positive in 33 (20%) patients, principally Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and nontuberculosis mycobacterium. Pathology results from endobronchial biopsies identified respiratory conditions associated with cough, primarily eosinophilic bronchitis (n=15), as well as neurofibromatosis (n=1) and amyloidosis (n=1). Cytology results did not reveal alternate diagnoses not previously identified.Conclusion: Inclusion of bronchial washings and endobronchial biopsies during bronchoscopy for chronic unexplained cough increased diagnostic yield from 28%, attributable to directly visualized anatomic etiologies, to 41%. The addition of microbiology cultures and pathology analysis significantly increased the diagnostic yield of bronchoscopy in identifying the potential etiology of chronic heretofore unexplained cough.

  • Transbronchial Cryobiopsy in Interstitial Lung Disease: Safety of a
           Standardized Procedure
    • Authors: She; Shelley; Steinfort, Daniel P.; Ing, Alvin J.; Williamson, Jonathan P.; Leong, Paul; Irving, Louis B.; Jennings, Barton R.; Saghaie, Tajalli
      Abstract: imageBackground: Transbronchial lung cryobiopsy (TBCB) plays an increasing role in the evaluation of diffuse parenchymal lung disease with acceptable diagnostic yield and safety profile compared with that of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgical lung biopsy on most reports. However, published outcomes with regard to safety and complication rates vary. We aim to determine the safety profile of TBCB when performed using a standardized protocol consistent with recently published expert guidelines.Materials and Methods: We reviewed prospectively maintained databases from 5 Australian tertiary referral centers. The procedures were performed in accordance with a recent expert statement recommending standardization of TBCB procedures, in particular with fluoroscopy, a secured airway, and prophylactic bronchial blockers. Periprocedural complications were assessed along with clinical outcomes.Results: A total of 121 patients underwent TBCB between August 2013 and August 2017 following a standardized protocol using general anesthesia. Of them, 84 patients (66.7%) were discharged on the day of the procedure. Pneumothorax occurred in 18 patients (14.9%), 13 (10.7%) of whom required chest tube drainage. Moderate bleeding occurred in 15 patients (13.2%) and severe bleeding in 1 (0.83%). Histopathologic diagnosis was made in 80 patients (66.1%).Conclusion: Pooled outcomes from Australian tertiary centers indicate that TBCB is safe when performed in a protocolized fashion. Active measures to anticipate and manage bleeding and to direct biopsy position result in low rates of major complications.

  • Physician Practice Patterns for Performing Thoracentesis in Patients
           Taking Anticoagulant Medications
    • Authors: DeBiasi; Erin M.; Murphy, Terrence E.; Araujo, Katy L.B.; Pisani, Margaret A.; Puchalski, Jonathan T.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Patients undergoing thoracentesis often have comorbid conditions or take medications that potentially put them at higher bleeding risk. Direct oral anticoagulant (DOAC) use has also increased significantly. There are no published guidelines or consensus on when to perform thoracentesis in patients on anticoagulants. Recent studies support the safety of a more liberal approach for thoracentesis among patients with coagulopathy.Methods: We conducted a survey to ascertain the practices of physicians regarding thoracentesis in patients with increased bleeding risk. The survey was administered to the email distribution lists of the American Association of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology and of the American Thoracic Society.Results: The survey was completed by 256 attending physicians. Most of them were general pulmonologists practicing at academic medical centers. Most of them would perform a thoracentesis in patients receiving acetylsalicylic acid or prophylactic doses of unfractionated heparin or low molecular weight heparin (96%, 89%, and 88%, respectively). Half of the respondents would perform a thoracentesis in patients on antiplatelet medications (clopidogrel and ticagrelor, 51%; ticlopidine, 53%). A minority would perform thoracentesis in patients on direct oral anticoagulants or infused thrombin inhibitors (19% and 12%, respectively). The only subgroup that had a higher proclivity for performing thoracentesis without holding medications were attending physicians practicing for under 10 years. Relative to noninterventional pulmonologists, there were no significant differences in the responses of interventional pulmonologists.Conclusion: There was variation in the practice patterns of attending physicians in performing thoracentesis in patients with elevated bleeding risk. Further data and guidelines regarding the safety of thoracentesis in these patients are needed.

  • Programmed Death Ligand 1 Testing of Endobronchial Ultrasound–guided
           Transbronchial Needle Aspiration Samples Acquired For the Diagnosis and
           Staging of Non–Small Cell Lung Cancer
    • Authors: Smith; Allister; Wang, Hangjun; Zerbo, Alix; Beaudoin, Stéphane; Ofiara, Linda; Fiset, Pierre-Olivier; Benedetti, Andrea; Gonzalez, Anne V.
      Abstract: imageRationale: Immunotherapy has become an integral part of management in patients with advanced non–small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Programmed death ligand 1 (PD-L1) expression in at least 50% of tumor cells on histologic samples has been correlated with improved efficacy of the immune checkpoint inhibitor pembrolizumab. A limited number of studies have examined the suitability of endobronchial ultrasound–guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUS-TBNA) specimens for assessment of PD-L1 status.Objective: We sought to examine the feasibility and results of PD-L1 testing performed on EBUS-TBNA samples acquired for the diagnosis and staging of NSCLC.Materials and Methods: Patients were identified from a prospectively maintained pathology database. Baseline characteristics were tabulated. Hematoxylin and eosin slides were reviewed to categorize cellularity between 500 viable tumor cells. Samples were tested using Dako’s PD-L1 IHC 22C3 pharmDx kit, with a minimum of 100 viable tumor cells. For patients in whom additional tissue samples were available, the results of PD-L1 testing were compared.Results: PD-L1 testing was attempted on 120 EBUS-TBNA samples. The most common NSCLC subtype was adenocarcinoma (78%). Seventy-six specimens (63%) had a cellularity>500 tumor cells. Among 110 of 120 (92%) patients with an adequate endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) sample, 53 of 110 (48.2%) had high PD-L1 expression, defined as a Tumor Proportion Score ≥50%. EBUS PD-L1 results were concordant with an available histologic sample in 14 of 18 patients (78%), with no false-negative results.Conclusion: PD-L1 testing was feasible in the majority of EBUS-TBNA samples acquired for the diagnosis and staging of NSCLC. Comparison of EBUS results with histologic samples revealed moderate concordance, with no false-negative results.

  • Assessment of Ergonomic Strain and Positioning During Bronchoscopic
           Procedures: A Feasibility Study
    • Authors: Gilbert; Christopher R.; Thiboutot, Jeffrey; Mallow, Christopher; Chen, Alexander; Pastis, Nicholas J.; Argento, A. Christine; Millar, Jennifer; Lavin, Robert A.; Lerner, Andrew D.; Yu, Diana H.; Salwen, Ben; Lunz, Daniel; Lee, Hans J.; Yarmus, Lonny B.
      Abstract: imageBackground: Poor ergonomics place health care workers at risk for work-related overuse injuries. Repetitive and prolonged hand maneuvers, such as those performed during endoscopic procedures, may lead to musculoskeletal complaints and work-related injuries. However, the prevalence of health care–related work injuries among physicians is thought to be underreported and there is a paucity of literature investigating the impact of ergonomic strain on bronchoscopy. We designed a feasibility study to explore the differences in ergonomic strain and muscle activity of bronchoscopists.Materials and Methods: A prospective study of bronchoscopic procedures was performed in a simulated environment. Preselected target areas were identified and airway sampling was performed with real-time ergonomic assessment utilizing electromyogram (EMG), grip strength, and musculoskeletal use and motion analysis.Results: Procedural data was obtained for all procedures (78 bronchoscopies by 13 subjects) for both ergonomic and EMG scores. Experienced bronchoscopists demonstrated less EMG burden (P=0.007) and improved ergonomic positioning (P=0.007) during bronchoscopy when compared with less experienced bronchoscopists. Procedures performed with rotational-head bronchoscopes trended toward improved ergonomics (P=0.15) and lower EMG scores (P=0.88). A significant improvement in ergonomic scores was seen with the rotational-head bronchoscope when targeting the left upper lobe (P=0.036).Conclusion: Poor ergonomic positioning and excessive muscle strain appear present within bronchoscopy procedures but may be improved in those with more bronchoscopy experience. Technological advances in bronchoscope design may also have the potential to improve procedural ergonomics. Additional prospective studies are warranted to define the long-term impact on bronchoscopic ergonomics.
