      Significances of spirometry and impulse oscillometry for detecting small airway disorders assessed with endobronchial optical coherence tomography in COPD

      Background: Spirometry confers limited value for identifying small-airway disorders (SADs) in early-stage COPD, which can be detected with impulse oscillometry (IOS) and endobronchial optical coherence tomography (EB-OCT). Whether IOS is useful for reflecting small-airway morphological abnormalities in COPD remains unclear. Objectives: To compare the diagnostic value of spirometry and IOS for identifying SADs in heavy-smokers and COPD based on the objective assessment with EB-OCT. Methods: We recruited 59 COPD patients (stage I, n=17; stage II, n=18; stage III–IV, n=24), 26 heavy-smokers and 21 never-smokers. Assessments of clinical characteristics, spirometry, IOS and EB-OCT were performed. Receiver operation ...

    2. Measuring Airway Remodeling in Patients with Different COPD Staging Using Endobronchial Optical Coherence Tomography

      Measuring Airway Remodeling in Patients with Different COPD Staging Using Endobronchial Optical Coherence Tomography

      Background Although forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV 1 ) remains the gold standard for staging COPD, the association between airway remodeling and airflow limitation remains unclear. Objective Endobronchial optical coherence tomography (EB-OCT) was performed to assess the association between disorders of large- and medium-to-small-sized airways and COPD staging. We also evaluated small-airway architecture in heavy-smokers with normal FEV 1 (S NL ) and healthy never-smokers. Methods We recruited 48 COPD patients (stage Ⅰ, n=14; stage Ⅱ, n=15; stage Ⅲ-Ⅳ, n=19), 21 S NL , and 17 healthy never-smokers. Smoking history inquiry, spirometry, chest computed tomography, bronchoscopy and EB-OCT ...
