Respiratory Secretion Analyses in the Evaluation of Ventilator-Associated Pneumonia: A Survey of Current Practice in Pediatric Critical Care*
Conclusions: The majority of pediatric intensivists would obtain respiratory secretion cultures and Gram stains in the evaluation of an intubated child with fever and leukocytosis and initiate antibiotics guided by the results. The specificity of respiratory secretion cultures and Gram stains for the diagnosis of ventilator-associated pneumonia requires critical evaluation as this diagnosis is responsible for more than half of antibiotic use in the PICU.

Fatalities Above 30,000 Feet: Characterizing Pediatric Deaths on Commercial Airline Flights Worldwide*
Conclusions: Pediatric in-flight fatalities are rare, but death occurs most commonly in infants and in subjects with a preexisting medical condition. The number of fatalities involving seemingly previously healthy children under the age of 2 years (lap infants) is intriguing and could indicate a vulnerable population at increased risk of death related to in-flight environmental factors, sleeping arrangements, or yet another unrecognized factor.

ALS and Other Motor Neuron Diseases
This article also covers other motor neuron diseases, reviews how to distinguish them from ALS, and discusses their pathophysiology. Recent Findings:In this article, the spectrum of cognitive involvement in ALS, new concepts about protein synthesis pathology in the etiology of ALS, and new genetic associations will be covered. This concept has changed over the past 3 to 4 years with the discovery of new genes and genetic processes that may trigger the disease. As of 2014, two-thirds of familial ALS and 10% of sporadic ALS can be explained by genetics. TAR DNA binding protein 43 kDa (TDP-43), for instance, has been shown to...

Maintenance Tocolysis With Oral Micronized Progesterone for Prevention of Preterm Birth After Arrested Preterm Labor
ABSTRACT: Preterm birth is the leading cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality worldwide. The accepted treatment of preterm labor is acute tocolysis, but whether maintenance tocolysis is appropriate after initial tocolysis for spontaneous preterm labor is uncertain. Progesterone has not been thoroughly investigated for use to maintain tocolysis. This double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial was undertaken to evaluate the efficacy of maintenance therapy with oral micronized progesterone (OMP) for prolongation of pregnancy in parturients with arrested preterm labor. Women at 24 to 34 weeks’ gestation with a sin...

Pseudo-tumor Mimicking Indwelling Pleural Catheter Tract Metastasis in Mesothelioma
We report 2 patients with mesothelioma who developed new subcutaneous nodules at their indwelling pleural catheter insertion site, mimicking tract metastases. Biopsies of both lesions revealed benign etiologies and both resolved without requiring irradiation. These cases remind clinicians that new subcutaneous lesions can be benign even when arising at pleural puncture sites of malignant pleural mesothelioma patients. Percutaneous biopsy can clarify the diagnosis in suitable cases. (Source: Journal of Bronchology and Interventional Pulmonology)

Complex Metallic Stent Removal: Decade After Deployment
We present a case of longstanding endobronchial GPA with recurrent bronchial stenosis. Three SEMs were deployed in the distal left main bronchus 10 years prior. Two were removed in the standard manner, but the remaining stent SEM was completely embedded in the bronchial mucosa making its removal extraordinarily difficult. We placed an oversized silicone stent inside the stent leading to necrosis of the mucosa allowing for a less formidable removal of the embedded stent. Another silicone stent was temporarily placed. SEMs removal can be extremely complicated and should only be performed by experienced bronchoscopists in an ...

Modified Technique of Endobronchial Balloon Tamponade for Persistent Hemoptysis
We report 3 patients with persistent hemoptysis who were successfully managed by this modified endobronchial balloon tamponade technique. In the 3 cases, a snare inserted through a bronchoscope is used to grasp a balloon catheter, outside the bronchoscope. After the correct position of the balloon proximal to the bleeding, the snare is removed and the balloon inflated. The bronchoscope is then withdrawn and the balloon is left in the airway. The balloon was kept inflated 72 hours in the bleeding airway in the first 2 cases with complete resolution of the hemoptysis. In the last case, the balloon was kept inflated 9 hours, ...

Molecular Pathology of Emerging Coronavirus Infections
Abstract Respiratory viruses can cause a wide spectrum of pulmonary disease ranging from mild, upper respiratory tract infections to severe and life‐threatening lower respiratory tract infection including development of acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). Viral clearance and subsequent recovery from infection require activation of an effective host immune response; however, many immune effector cells may also cause injury to host tissues. Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) Coronavirus and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) Coronavirus cause severe infection of the lower resp...

Bacterial Prevalence and Antimicrobial Prescribing Trends for Acute Respiratory Tract Infections
Many pediatric acute respiratory tract infections (ARTI) are viral and do not require antimicrobial treatment. Recent estimates of antimicrobial overprescribing for these infections, defined based on the published bacterial disease prevalence among all ARTI, are not available. Based on the published bacterial prevalence rates for pediatric ARTI, antimicrobial agents are prescribed almost twice as often as expected to outpatients nationally, amounting to an estimated 11.4 million potentially preventable antimicrobial prescriptions annually.

A rare association between Fabry's disease and granulomatosis with polyangiitis: a potential pathogenic link
Conclusion: Because both Fabry's disease and granulomatosis with polyangiitis or crescentic glomerulonephritis are rare diseases, their concurrence in this and related cases suggests there may be a pathogenic link between these two conditions. Fabry's disease may be underdiagnosed, particularly in cases of granulomatosis with polyangiitis or crescentic glomerulonephritis. (Source: BMC Nephrology)
