T he ability to perform procedures is one of the defining characteristics that attracted so many of us to fellowships in pulmonary medicine, critical care medicine, and thoracic surgery. In fact, nearly 500,000 bronchoscopies are done each year in the United States. Additionally, approximately 15,000 airway stents are placed yearly worldwide. The number and complexity of procedures that can be performed in the bronchoscopy unit is increasing. For example, endobronchial electrocautery for tumor… Expand
Variation in training for interventional pulmonary procedures among US pulmonary/critical care fellowships: a survey of fellowship directors.
TLDR
There is a large variation in the spectrum of pulmonary procedures offered to trainees and programs with a dedicated IP are more likely to offer training in advanced therapeutic procedures, which has implications for training, delivery of care, and research. Expand
Fellows' Perspective of Their Training in Interventional Pulmonary Procedures
TLDR
Assessment of affiliate members of the American College of Chest Physicians regarding the type and number of interventional chest procedures offered during their training and satisfaction with procedural training during fellowship concluded that most fellows were dissatisfied with their training in both advanced diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Expand
The Evolution of Bronchoscopy Training
TLDR
In a study of pulmonary fellows who were graded throughout the course of their first year of fellowship, all attained competency in bronchoscopy by the 100th procedure, however, there was large variation among fellows as to when competency was reached, with some fellows reachThe year was 1993, my first day of fellowship training in pulmonary medicine, and I felt every emotion from anger at my attending physician, to sympathy for my patient, to fear for my career.

Bronchoscopy simulation: a brief review
  • M. Davoudi, H. Colt
  • Medicine
  • Advances in health sciences education : theory and practice
  • 2009
TLDR
An overview of the available literature pertaining to the use of simulation in bronchoscopy education is provided to demonstrate how this limited yet valuable body of work lays a foundation for the future use of simulator-based bronchoscope training. Expand
Anesthetic considerations for interventional pulmonary procedures
TLDR
The anesthetic considerations of various procedures now performed by the interventional pulmonologist are discussed, including endobronchial valves, which can substitute for lung reduction surgery and can greatly reduce the postoperative recovery period. Expand
Training for linear endobronchial ultrasound among US pulmonary/critical care fellowships: a survey of fellowship directors.
TLDR
EBUS exposure has rapidly disseminated into fellowship training programs, and programs with an identifiable IP are more likely to provide fellows with more EBUS procedures, pointing out the need to develop a standardized protocol for EBUS competency. Expand
An evaluation of procedural training in Canadian respirology fellowship programs: program directors' and fellows' perspectives.
TLDR
Canadian respirology fellows perform lower numbers of basic respiratory procedures, other than flexible bronchoscopy, than that suggested by the American College of Chest Physicians guidelines. Expand
Competence in operative bronchoscopy.
TLDR
The current knowledge and skills for the main techniques of operative bronchoscopy and their applications in the treatment of malignant and benign central airway disorders are described and a clear need to define a competency-based training program for rigid bronchoscope, including stent placement is defined. Expand
Training and practice in bronchoscopy a national survey in Italy.
TLDR
It is shown that interventional bronchoscopy procedures are regularly performed according to current recommendations by over half of the Italian Pulmonologists participating in the survey, and the need for more comprehensive basic education and training was put forward by the majority of physicians. Expand
Thoracoscopy: Advances and Increasing Role for Interventional Pulmonologists
  • Pyng Lee, E. Folch
  • Medicine
  • Seminars in respiratory and critical care medicine
  • 2018
TLDR
In the era of rapidly evolving therapeutics for lung cancer, immune‐modulation and ever‐increasing risks of immunosuppression, MT will evolve and continue to play a pivotal role in the evaluation and research of pleuropulmonary diseases. Expand

Objective Evaluation of Endoscopy Skills during Training
TLDR
The goal of this study was to relate the acquisition of a few basic skills to the number of procedures using a simple, quick, and objective grading system for each procedure. Expand
On Endoscopic Training and Procedural Competence
TLDR
It is suggested that at least 100 supervised procedures are required to achieve competence in esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) and colonoscopy, and the first objective information on the evolution of endoscopic competence in training gastroenterology fellows and surgical residents in the performance of EGD and Colonoscopy is reported.

Bronchoscopy training: current fellows' experiences and some concerns for the future.
TLDR
Approaches to bronchoscopy instruction and the components of bronchoscope experiences vary considerably among institutions and are associated with pulmonary fellows' perceptions of bron choscopy proficiency and training program quality. Expand
Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery in the diagnosis and treatment of chest diseases.
TLDR
Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery should be considered as a procedure of choice, with exceptional results in the following chest diseases: undiagnosed pleural effusions; recurrent, post-traumatic, or complicated spontaneous pneumothorax; stage II empyema; and accurate staging of lung cancer. Expand
The cost of diagnosis: a comparison of four different strategies in the workup of solitary radiographic lung lesions.
TLDR
Spt is not cost-effective in clinical practice, except when the patient has a large clinically unresectable lesion and the laboratory can demonstrate sufficient test sens. Expand
Transthoracic needle biopsy of the lung: results of early discharge in 506 outpatients.
TLDR
Early discharge after outpatient transthoracic needle biopsy of the lung is associated with little morbidity and no mortality. Expand
Transbronchial needle aspiration in the practice of bronchoscopy.
TLDR
Bronchoscopy with a flexible fiberoptic instrument and transbronchial needle aspiration is found to be useful in selected patients and increases the diagnostic yield for small-cell carcinoma and carcinoma metastatic to the chest. Expand

TLDR
Patients who are surgical candidates and have a high clinical suspicion for malignancy should undergo surgical biopsy and resection of their lung tumors if indicated. Expand
Endobronchial ultrasound-guided needle aspiration of mediastinal adenopathy.
TLDR
In the setting of on-site cytopathology, transbronchial needle aspiration has a high sensitivity, specificity, and diagnostic accuracy in the evaluation of enlarged mediastinal lymph nodes suspected of harboring malignancy. Expand
Diagnostic accuracy and safety of CT-guided percutaneous needle aspiration biopsy of the lung: comparison of small and large pulmonary nodules.
TLDR
CT-guided percutaneous needle aspiration biopsy is significantly less accurate for small pulmonary nodule than for large pulmonary nodules, but the complication rates for both are low. Expand
