In a study on biomass smoke-induced bronchial
anthracofibrosis, 22.5% of patients were diagnosed as having an acute exacerbation of obstructive airways disease.
On bronchoscopic evaluation, diffuse anthracosis was found to be present in the right and left bronchial
The interlobular septal thickening, bronchial
wall thickening, and ground glass opacities likely reflect both pulmonary vein hypertension and engorged lymphatics.
This leads to the assumption that, in addition to fossil fuel emission, other factors such as genetics, chronic inflammatory reactions, balance of deposition and clearance of carbon particles, and/or chronic infections such as tuberculosis (TB) play a role in the development of bronchial
anthracosis or anthracofibrosis.
Other problems to be considered: Bronchial
mucous plug with associated hyper-aeration, extrinsic bronchial
compression, agenesis/ hypoagensis of contralateral lung, bronchial
hypoplasia with air trapping peripherally congenital cystic adenomatous malformation, pneumothorax.15,20
The rational of this study was to determine the frequency of detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in bronchial
washing Gene Xpert in sputumscarce cases of suspected PTB.
Effects of yoga on pulmonary functions in bronchial
asthmatics have varied across studies.
variant of Dieulafoy's disease was initially reported in 1995, and it has been considered to be a rare disease. The causes of Dieulafoy's disease of the bronchus remained uncertain.
 Imprint smears from bronchial
biopsy has also been found to give a good diagnostic yield.
thermoplasty reduces the smooth muscle mass lining the airways, decreasing their ability to constrict.
Methods: This descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, Rawalpindi, Pakistan, from March 2014 to March 2016, and comprised clinically-diagnosed adult patients of bronchial
asthma referred from various hospitals of Rawalpindi and Islamabad.
MONDAY, May 21, 2018 (HealthDay News) -- Airway bioengineering appears feasible for tracheal and bronchial
reconstruction, according to a study published online May 20 in the Journal of the American Medical Association to coincide with the American Thoracic Society's 2018 International Conference, held from May 18 to 23 in San Diego.
