Abstract: Background The coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has swept the globe and is causing significant morbidity and mortality. Given that the virus is transmitted via droplets, open airway procedures such as bronchoscopy pose a significant risk to health care workers (HCW). The goal of this guideline was to examine the current evidence on the role of bronchoscopy during the COVID-19 pandemic and the optimal protection of patients and HCW. Methods A group of approved panelists developed key...

Abstract Background Transbronchial cryobiopsy (TBC) is increasingly recognized as a potential alternative to surgical lung biopsy (SLB) for the diagnosis of interstitial lung disease (ILD). The goal of this analysis was to examine the literature on TBC as it relates to diagnostic utility and safety to provide evidence-based and expert guidance to clinicians. Methods Approved panelists developed key questions regarding the diagnostic utility and safety of TBC for the evaluation of ILD using the P...

RATIONALE: Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction (BLVR) with Zephyr(R) Valves improves lung function, exercise tolerance and quality of life (QoL) of patients with hyperinflated emphysema and little to no collateral ventilation (CV). OBJECTIVES: Post-hoc analysis of patient reported outcomes (PROs) including multidimensional measures of dyspnea, activity, and QoL in the LIBERATE Study are reported. METHODS: 190 patients with severe heterogeneous emphysema and little to no CV in the target lobe wer...

Background The capability of bronchoscopy in the diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary nodules (PPNs) remains limited. Despite decades of effort, evidence suggests that the diagnostic accuracy for electromagnetic navigational bronchoscopy (EMN) and radial endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) approach only 50%. New developments in robotic bronchoscopy (RB) may offer improvements in the assessment of PPNs. Methods A prospective single-blinded randomized controlled comparative study to assess success in loc...

For approximately the last 50 years, bronchoscopy, especially flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy, has been a mainstay for airway inspection, the diagnosis of airway lesions, therapeutic aspiration of...

Malignant central airway obstruction (CAO) occurs in approximately 20–30% of patients with lung cancer and is associated with debilitating symptoms and poor prognosis. Multimodality therapeutic bronchoscopy can relieve malignant CAO, though carries risk. Evidence to guide clinicians regarding which patients may benefit from such interventions is sparse. We aimed to assess the clinical and radiographic predictors associated with therapeutic bronchoscopy success in relieving malignant CAO. We revi...
