Malignant central airway obstruction.
TLDR
This review comprehensively describes recent advances in the management of malignant central airway obstruction and assesses the risks and benefits of interventions in each individual patient during the decision-making process. Expand
Evaluation of Appropriate Mediastinal Staging among Endobronchial Ultrasound Bronchoscopists
TLDR
General pulmonology and pulmonary fellows were less likely than interventional pulmonologists to perform appropriate EBUS staging, and the lack of concordance between self‐confidence and appropriate staging performance among noninterventionists signals a need for improved dissemination of guidelines for EBUS‐guided mediastinal staging. Expand
What Exactly Is a Centrally Located Lung Tumor? Results of an Online Survey
TLDR
A uniform definition of tumor centrality is currently lacking, and should be formulated, and studies using objective measurements that evaluate the ability of these different definitions of central lung tumors to predict N2 disease are needed. Expand
Risk factors for pleural effusion recurrence in patients with malignancy
TLDR
The main purpose of treatment in patients with malignant pleural effusion is symptom palliation and the primary objective of this study was to identify risk factors associated with recurrent symptomatic MPE. Expand
Radiation-induced Angiosarcoma as a Cause of Pleural Effusion.
Evaluation and Classifications of Laryngotracheal Stenosis
in the evaluation of patients with LTS. We present a simple classification system, using parameters that have been previously designed for the evaluation of the dynamic forms of central airwayExpand
Interventional pulmonology for asthma and emphysema: bronchial thermoplasty and bronchoscopic lung volume reduction.
TLDR
Bronchoscopic modalities for emphysema and asthma are reviewed, finding BT has been shown to be safe and improves symptoms, with long lasting benefit and questions remain regarding proper patient selection for this therapy and its true physiologic effects. Expand
Bronchoscopic resection of an exophytic endoluminal tracheal mass.
TLDR
A 43-year-old man was evaluated for progressively limiting exertional dyspnea, wheezing that was most prominent in the supine position, and difficulty clearing secretions from his airway and believed that tissue sampling and restoration of airway patency would be more safely done by rigid bronchoscopy.

AABIP Evidence-informed Guidelines and Expert Panel Report for the Management of Indwelling Pleural Catheters
TLDR
This manuscript was developed to provide clinicians with guidance on the management of patients with indwelling pleural catheters placed for palliation of malignant pleural effusions by developing unbiased, scientifically valid guidance based on the best available evidence. Expand
Pleural Drainage Strategy After IPC Placement: A Focused Clinical Review.
TLDR
A focused clinical review explores the current literature regarding IPC drainage strategies as well as novel methods designed to improve the efficacy of IPCs in a thorough and systematic manner and provides an in-depth analysis and synthesis of the data focusing on key considerations needed to develop patient-centered and cost-effective strategies.
