  • The CF-Sputum Induction Trial (CF-SpIT) to assess lower airway bacterial sampling in young children with cystic fibrosis: a prospective internally controlled interventional trial. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: Sputum induction is superior to cough swab for pathogen detection, is effective at sampling the lower airway, and is a credible surrogate for bronchoalveolar lavage in symptomatic children. A substantial number of bronchoscopies could be avoided if sputum induction is done first and pathogens are appropriately treated. Both sputum induction and six-lobe bronchoalveolar lavage provide independent, sizeable gains in pathogen detection compared with the current gold-standard two-lobe bronchoalveolar lavage. We propose that sputum induction and six-lobe bronchoalveolar lavage combined are used as standard of care for comprehensive lower airway pathogen detection in children with cystic fibrosis.
  • Unusual Behavior of a Lung Inflammatory Myofibroblastic Tumor: Case Report. [Journal Article]
  • RPRev Port Cir Cardiotorac Vasc 2017 Jul-Dec; 24(3-4):140

  • CONCLUSIONS: Inflammatory myofibrobastic tumors are considered benign or low-grade malignant tumors. The size of the tumour (cut-off of 3 cm) and secure surgical resection with free margins are the major determinants for recurrence and survival. There are some cases reported in the literature of distant metastasis and sarcomatous transformation after multiple recurrences. In our patient, the lesion was bigger than 3 cm and he underwent a complete resection. Nothing could foresee this aggressive metastatic behavior, especially when the recurrence did not show a sarcomatous transformation.
