Bronchoscopic Appearances In Disease





Category: BRONCHOSCOPY IN DISEASES OF THE TRACHEA AND BRONCHI
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery

The first look should note
the color of the bronchial mucosa, due allowance being made for the
pressure of tubal contact, secretions, and the engorgement incident to
continued cough. The carina trachealis normally moves slowly forward
as well as downward during deep inspiration, returning quickly during
expiration. Impaired movement of the carina indicates peritracheal and
peribronchial pathology, the fixation being greatest in advanced
cancer. In children and in the smaller tubes of the adult, the
lengthening and dilatation of the bronchi during inspiration, and
their shortening and contraction during expiration are readily seen.
