In cases not demonstrably tuberculous, hemoptysis may
require bronchoscopic examination to determine the origin. Varices or
unsuspected luetic, malignant, or tuberculous lesions may be found to
be the cause. It is mechanically easy to pack off one bronchus with
the author's packs (Fig. 96) introduced through the bronchoscope, but
the advisability of doing so requires further clinical tests.
