Bronchoscopy In Diseases Of The Trachea And Bronchi
Category: BRONCHOSCOPY IN DISEASES OF THE TRACHEA AND BRONCHI
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery
The indications for bronchoscopy in disease are becoming
increasingly numerous. Among the more important may be mentioned:
2. Chronic pulmonary abscess.
3. Unexplained dyspnea.
4. Dyspnea unrelieved by tracheotomy calls for bronchoscopic search
for deeper obstruction.
5. Paralysis of the recurrent laryngeal nerve, the cause of which is
not positively known.
6. Obscure thoracic disease.
7. Unexplained hemoptysis.
8. Unexplained cough.
9. Unexplained expectoration.
Contraindications to bronchoscopy in disease do not exist if the
bronchoscopy is really needed. Serious organic disease such as
aneurysm, hypertension, advanced cardiac disease, might render
bronchoscopy inadvisable except for the removal of foreign bodies.
