Thoracic Endoscopy: Advances in Interventional Pulmonology
April 2008, Wiley-Blackwell
Thoracic Endoscopy covers four key areas of
- advanced diagnostic bronchoscopy
- the latest techniques for interventional bronchoscopy
— including the traditional rigid bronchoscopy techniques,
ablative instruments and stents — and a discussion of
endobronchial lung reduction and gene therapy
- a window to the pleura, covering the field of
pleuroscopy and the advances in diagnosis and treatment
- clinical problems and methodologies, and strategies for solving them using interventional techniques
Thoracic Endoscopy presents the only coherent guide to the full range of techniques and practice patterns, and is the essential reference for both experienced interventional pulmonologists and students beginning to practice in this rapidly-developing field.
