SARS-CoV-2 causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Circulating soluble angiotensin-converting enzyme (sACE2), the main receptor for SARS-CoV-2, together with components of the renin-angiotensin system promote infection and disease severity. Objective: In this pilot study we followed the time-course of sACE2 levels in relation to systemic cytoki...

Background: The mortality and morbidity of COVID‐19 disease as well as the lack of a proper medication has forced researchers and clinicians to employ urgent efficient technologies to overcome this current pandemic. In the severe forms of COVID-19, the patients develop a cytokine storm syndrome (CSS) where pro-inflammatory cytokines such as IL-6 an...
Article
Background: Thrombotic complications are considered among the main extrapulmonary manifestations of COVID-19. The optimal type and duration of prophylactic antithrombotic therapy in these patients remain unknown. Methods: This manuscript reports the final (90-day) results of the Intermediate versus Standard-dose Prophylactic anticoagulation In c...

Importance Thrombotic events are commonly reported in critically ill patients with COVID-19. Limited data exist to guide the intensity of antithrombotic prophylaxis. Objective To evaluate the effects of intermediate-dose vs standard-dose prophylactic anticoagulation among patients with COVID-19 admitted to the intensive care unit (ICU). Design, S...
Article
Background Microvascular and macrovascular thrombotic events are among the hallmarks of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Furthermore, the exuberant immune response is considered an important driver of pulmonary and extrapulmonary manifestations of COVID-19. The optimal management strategy to prevent thrombosis in critically-ill patients with CO...

It is an exciting time for interventional pulmonology (IP) and advanced bronchoscopy procedures. In order to turn IP team aspirational goals into actions, we are eager to develop our knowledge on the care of patients with thoracic diseases through synergy of innovative technologies, minimally invasive procedures, and transformative education and research. As stated in the newly decade of diagnosis and therapeutic success and beyond the recognition, there is now a true sense of momentum and excitement that we can harness the best collective advances to publish "ADVANCED ATLAS OF INTERVENTIONAL PULMONOLOGY PROCEDURES" By conducting high-quality research and delivering evidence-based care we would be able to provide better and even the first-class education.
