Prominent publications by Jose´ Manuel Porcel

KOL-Index: 19444 . STUDY OBJECTIVE: The diagnostic value of tumor markers in pleural fluid is subject to debate. The aim of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic performance of several tumor markers in common use for detecting malignant pleural disease. DESIGN: Blinded comparison of four tumor markers in pleural fluid with a confirmatory diagnosis of malignancy by pleural cytology or thoracoscopic ...

KOL-Index: 15701 . BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: To assess the diagnostic performance of the amino-terminal fragment of pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) in pleural fluid and serum for the identification of pleural effusions owing to heart failure, and to determine if these measurements allow better categorization of cardiac effusions that have been misclassified by Light's criteria, than do ...

KOL-Index: 12940 . STUDY OBJECTIVE: Streptococcus pneumoniae is the most frequent causative agent of community-acquired pneumonia (CAP); however, an etiologic diagnosis by traditional techniques can be accomplished in only a small percentage of patients with CAP. Pleural fluid is present in approximately 40% of patients with CAP; therefore, we hypothesized that detection of S pneumoniae DNA in pleural fluid ...

KOL-Index: 12135 . BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to compare the diagnostic accuracy of pleural fluid brain natriuretic peptide (BNP), N-terminal pro-BNP (NT-pro-BNP) and ST2, which are biomarkers of myocyte stress, for diagnosing pleural effusions due to heart failure (HF). BNP and ST2 have not been previously evaluated in pleural fluid. METHODS: The three biomarkers were measured in the ...

KOL-Index: 11923 . PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Natriuretic peptides are secreted by the myocardium in response to mechanical stretch and have been proposed as a possible test for assisting the diagnosis of heart failure. This article reviews the rationale for measuring N terminal probrain natriuretic peptide in pleural fluid to identify heart failure as the cause of a pleural effusion. RECENT FINDINGS: Rapid and ...

KOL-Index: 11548 . We aimed to investigate whether pleural fluid concentrations of biomarkers for bacterial infection, namely triggering receptor expressed on myeloid cells (sTREM-1), procalcitonin (PCT), lipopolysaccharide-binding protein (LBP) and C-reactive protein (CRP), might identify infectious effusions and discriminate between complicated (CPPEs) and uncomplicated parapneumonic effusions (UPPEs). ...

KOL-Index: 11293 . STUDY OBJECTIVES: To determine whether the detection of pneumococcal antigen in pleural fluid augments conventional microbiological methods used for the etiologic diagnosis of pneumonia. METHODS: In this retrospective study, a rapid immunochromatographic test (ICT) [NOW Streptococcus pneumoniae assay; Binax; Scarborough, ME] was performed on pleural fluid samples from 34 patients with ...

KOL-Index: 11035 . STUDY OBJECTIVES: We sought to determine whether pleural fluid tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-alpha is a more accurate parameter to identify nonpurulent complicated parapneumonic effusion (CPPE) than the classical chemistries, namely pH, glucose, or lactate dehydrogenase (LDH). METHODS: We studied 80 consecutive patients with parapneumonic effusions (35 with uncomplicated parapneumonic ...

KOL-Index: 10887 . BACKGROUND: The role of fluorodeoxyglucose (FDG)-PET imaging for diagnosing malignant pleural effusions is not well defined. The aim of this study was to summarize the evidence for its use in ruling in or out the malignant origin of a pleural effusion or thickening. METHODS: A meta-analysis was conducted of diagnostic accuracy studies published in the Cochrane Library, PubMed, and Embase ...

KOL-Index: 10676 . BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: This study was designed to test the hypothesis that measurement of IL-8 and CRP in pleural fluid could improve the identification of patients with non-purulent parapneumonic effusions that ultimately require chest tube drainage. METHODS: We assessed IL-8, CRP and three classical parameters (pH, glucose and LDH) in the pleural fluid of 100 patients with ...

KOL-Index: 10485 . Detection of pneumococcal antigen has been used to increase the rate of diagnosis of pneumococcal pneumonia. The present study was designed to determine the value of rapid detection of pneumococcal antigen in samples obtained by transthoracic needle aspiration (TNA) from patients with community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) in a comparative analysis with culture and polymerase chain reaction ...

KOL-Index: 10221 . OBJECTIVES: To compare the accuracy of Light's criteria for categorizing a pleural effusion as an exudate with several alternative criteria. DESIGN: Prospective evaluation of patients who underwent a diagnostic thoracocentesis. SETTING: Community teaching hospital in Lleida, Spain. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Medical records and pleural fluid characteristics of 241 consecutive patients with ...

KOL-Index: 9913 . BACKGROUND: Recommendations for diagnostic testing in hospitalised patients with community-acquired pneumonia remain controversial. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the impact of a therapeutic strategy based on the microbiological results provided by urinary antigen tests for Streptococcus pneumoniae and Legionella pneumophila. METHODS: For a 2-year period, hospitalised ...
Known for Empirical Treatment | Urine Antigen | Hospitalised Patients | Acquired Pneumonia
KOL-Index: 9358 . BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Prompt identification of parapneumonic effusions has immediate therapeutic benefits. We aimed to assess whether C-reactive protein (CRP) and routine biochemistries in pleural fluid are accurate markers of parapneumonic effusions, and to evaluate their properties as indicators for drainage (complicated parapneumonic effusion). METHODS: A retrospective review of 340 ...

KOL-Index: 9031 . BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: The clinical relevance of pleural effusions in lung cancer has seldom been approached systematically. The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence, causes and natural history of lung cancer-associated pleural effusions, as well as their influence on survival. METHODS: Retrospective review of clinical records and imaging of 556 consecutive patients with a ...
