Diagnostic Yield and Complications of Transbronchial Lung Cryobiopsy for Interstitial Lung Disease. A Systematic Review and Metaanalysis
The diagnostic accuracy of transbronchial lung cryobiopsy cannot be determined given the absence of studies directly comparing cryobiopsy diagnoses with diagnoses derived from surgical lung biopsies interpreted within multidisciplinary discussions. The histopathological and multidisciplinary discussion-based diagnostic yield of transbronchial cryobiopsy appears high, but with variable frequencies of complications dominated by pneumothorax and moderate-to-severe hemorrhage.
Transbronchial cryobiopsy in diffuse parenchymal lung diseases
Pneumothorax and bronchial bleeding which is usually controlled by using Fogarty balloon.
Transbronchial cryobiopsy is a promising new technique that may become a valid alternative to surgical lung biopsy in the near feature
Transbronchial Cryobiopsy in Diffuse Parenchymal Lung Disease: Retrospective Analysis of 74 Cases, Chest 2017, 151 (2): 400-408
Single-center cohort demonstrated a 51% diagnostic yield from TBC; the rates of pneumothorax and bleeding were 1.4% and 22%, respectively.
Transbronchial lung cryobiopsy in the diagnosis of fibrotic interstitial lung diseases.
TBLC in the diagnosis of f-DPLD appears safe and feasible. TBLC has a good diagnostic yield in the clinical-radiological setting of f-DPLD without diagnostic HRCT features of usual interstitial pneumonia
Bronchoscopic Lung Cryobiopsy Increases Diagnostic Confidence in
the Multidisciplinary Diagnosis of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis
American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine Volume 193 Number 7 | April 1 2016
BLC is a new biopsy method that has a meaningful
impact on diagnostic confidence in the multidisciplinary
diagnosis of interstitial lung disease and may prove useful in the
diagnosis of IPF.
