A bronchoscopy is a procedure that allows the study of the interior of the larynx, trachea, and bronchi. The use of this procedure permits a precise diagnosis and treatment of respiratory tract disease.
Bronchoscopy and bronchial wash:
This procedure allows washing the inside of the bronchi to remove plugs made from thick secretions, as well as obtaining tissue samples from the interior of the lungs.
Bronchoscopy and tissue samples:
During the procedure, it is possible to extract small fragments of tissue from the respiratory tract to be analyzed under the microscope to obtain a precise diagnosis.
Bronchoscopy and stent placement:
This procedure makes it possible to place a stent within the respiratory tract when tumors obstruct the airway, permitting the flow of air into the lungs.
Bronchoscopy and removal of foreign bodies:
Through this procedure it is possible to remove from the respiratory tract foreign bodies that are aspirated accidentally, eliminating this way the need for surgery.
