Endobronchial ultrasonography using a guide sheath increases the ability to diagnose peripheral pulmonary lesions endoscopically.
TLDR
EBUS-GS is a useful method for collecting samples from peripheral pulmonary lesions, even those too small to be visualized under fluoroscopy. Expand
Phase II clinical study of photodynamic therapy using mono-L-aspartyl chlorin e6 and diode laser for early superficial squamous cell carcinoma of the lung.
Photofrin is the most commonly used photosensitizer for photodynamic therapy (PDT). The major side effect of Photofrin is cutaneous photosensitivity. A second generation photosensitizer,Expand
Exhaled Breath Analysis for Lung Cancer Detection Using Ion Mobility Spectrometry
TLDR
VOC peak patterns using a decision tree algorithm were useful in the detection of lung cancer and n-Dodecane analysis from adenocarcinoma patients might be useful to discriminate the EGFR mutation. Expand
Cell therapy with adipose tissue-derived stem/stromal cells for elastase-induced pulmonary emphysema in rats.
TLDR
Not only HGF, but also CINC-1, secreted from transplanted and viable ASCs presumably contributed to lung repair through angiogenesis. Expand
Interventional bronchoscopy in the management of airway stenosis due to tracheobronchial tuberculosis.
TLDR
Interventional bronchoscopy should be considered feasible for management of tuberculous tracheobronchial stenosis and Dumon stents seem to be appropriate, since removal or replacement is always possible. Expand
Ultrathin Bronchoscopy with Multimodal Devices for Peripheral Pulmonary Lesions. A Randomized Trial.
TLDR
The diagnostic yield of the UTB method is higher than that of the TB-GS method and the ultrathin bronchoscopes that allow the use of EBUS have not been developed so far. Expand

TLDR
Patients with malignant obstruction of the central airway have been treated by interventional bronchoscopy such as Nd-YAG laser and airway stenting, which contribute to improving and maintaining the QOL of the patients. Expand
Vibration Response Imaging as a New Tool for Interventional-Bronchoscopy Outcome Assessment: A Prospective Pilot Study
TLDR
VRI proved at least as good as standard tests in locating CAO and has the potential for becoming a valuable complementary tool in evaluating treatment outcome in patients with CAO. Expand
Novel Multimodality Imaging and Physiologic Assessments Clarify Choke-Point Physiology and Airway Wall Structure in Expiratory Central Airway Collapse
TLDR
Novel imaging and physiologic assessments could be used to localize choke points and airway wall structure in tracheobronchomalacia to improve airway dynamics, airway patency, and ventilatory function. Expand
The need for measures to prevent "solitary deaths" after large earthquakes - based on current conditions following the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake.
TLDR
This paper aims to provide a history of the use of x-ray diffraction analysis in medicine and its applications in the treatment of cancer and other diseases. Expand
