We would like to congratulate Fruchter et al1 for their ingenious, effective, and minimally invasive way of treating the very challenging condition of bronchopleural fistulas as reported in a recent issue of CHEST (March 2011). However, because we were cited in their work, we must make a correction. The misunderstanding is that our first publication was a case report of our first patient (53-year-old man with a right upper lobectomy) using this method.2 Later, Scordamaglio et al3 published a review of our experience endoscopically treating airway fistulas (two bronchopleural and one tracheoesophageal), which included this same patient. Since then, five more fistulas in four other patients have been treated, making a total of seven fistulas treated in six patients (one patient with two fistulas), with five of them already closed. Although the technique used is similar to that in Fruchter et al,1 there are small differences we believe are worth noting.
