Removal of tracheobronchial foreign bodies in adults using flexible bronchoscopy: experience 1995–2006
TLDR
Foreign body aspiration should be considered especially in the etiology of recurrent lung diseases and in the presence of risk factors for aspiration, in particular with different neurologic and neuromuscular diseases.
The influence of gastroesophageal reflux in the lung: A case–control study
TLDR
Whether an acidic environment in the lung influences pulmonary function and DLCO, and whether microaspiration of gastric contents directly influences non‐specific inflammation in the lungs are determined.
[Measurement of inspiratory flow for the selection of the inhalation treatment device for asthma and COPD].
TLDR
Significantly lower proportion of patients didn't have inspiratory flows necessary for the regular adequate use of Diskus than for Turbuhaler, and Spirometry is not to be used for selection of the device for drug application and In-check Dial should be used instead.
Survival analysis of untreated patients with non-small-cell lung cancer.
TLDR
The survival rate analysis of 130 patients with non-small-cell lung cancer who did not receive any specific anticancer therapy showed no statistically significant differences in the survival rates between various TNM combinations classified into stage groups II, IIIa, IIIb, and IV, and following these findings, two distinctive staging groups could be distinguished.
Lung function changes in pleural asbestosis.
TLDR
The obtained results indicate association between the length of asbestos exposure, pleural changes and the impairment of lung function.
A rare case of pulmonary tuberculosis with simultaneous pulmonary and skin sarcoidosis: a case report
TLDR
The authors of this study suggest that in cases when there is a dilemma in diagnosis between tuberculosis and sarcoidosis the authors should advance with corticosteroid therapy until they have microbiological confirmation of mycobacterium culture.
Bronchoalveolar pH and inflammatory biomarkers in newly diagnosed IPF and GERD patients: A case-control study
TLDR
The more acidic environment in the bronchoalveolar aspirate of the IPF subjects could contribute to the development or progression of IPF, possibly via changes in local metabolism or by damaging local cells and tissue.
A case of syphilitic interstitial pulmonary fibrosis.
TLDR
In the diagnosis of sarcoidosis and other diseases with similar radiological interstitial lung pattern, syphilitic interstitial pulmonary fibrosis should be carefully excluded.
