In this study, the feasibility of performing robotic navigation of peripheral airways in human subjects for the purpose of biopsying peripheral lung lesions will be evaluated.
RATIONALE: Fluorescent bronchoscopy, when used in combination with conventional white light bronchoscopy, may improve the ability to detect early lung cancer. PURPOSE: A pilot study to ev...
The purpose of this study is to determine the diagnostic yield of early lung cancer in high risk population, who smokes or has other risk factors, by different bronchoscopy,. Furthermore,...
Lung cancer is the commonest malignant disease with a 5-year survival of 14%. In Hong Kong, it accounts for about 30% of all cancer death. The poor prognosis of lung cancer is due largely ...
The ALF-X (Advanced Laparoscopy through Force reflection) Robotic Surgery System is a medical device that is available for distribution in the EU (European Union) under CE Mark for use in ...
Recent advances in bronchoscopy utilizing endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) as well as lung cancer therapy may have driven physicians to perform diagnostic bronchoscopy (DB) for high-risk patients.
Re-biopsy by bronchoscopy is an important part of treatment for patients with relapsed lung cancer; however, some patients refuse to undergo a re-examination due to discomfort during their first bronc...
The aim of the study was to characterize the clinical outcomes and learning curve during the adoption of a robotic platform for lobectomy for early-stage non-small cell lung cancer by a thoracic surge...
Tuberculosis is one of the most infectious diseases worldwide and lung cancer is one of the leading causes of death. The major contagious agent for tuberculosis, Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M. tubercu...
More than 60% of patients with lung cancer are diagnosed at advanced stages. The introduction of targeted therapies requires molecular diagnosis to guide treatment. The aim of this study was to evalua...
Tumors or cancer of the LUNG.
Malignant neoplasm arising from the epithelium of the BRONCHI. It represents a large group of epithelial lung malignancies which can be divided into two clinical groups: SMALL CELL LUNG CANCER and NON-SMALL-CELL LUNG CARCINOMA.
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the bronchi.
Nuclear phosphoprotein encoded by the p53 gene (GENES, P53) whose normal function is to control CELL PROLIFERATION and APOPTOSIS. A mutant or absent p53 protein has been found in LEUKEMIA; OSTEOSARCOMA; LUNG CANCER; and COLORECTAL CANCER.
A heterogeneous aggregate of at least three distinct histological types of lung cancer, including SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA; ADENOCARCINOMA; and LARGE CELL CARCINOMA. They are dealt with collectively because of their shared treatment strategy.
