Role of fiberoptic bronchoscopy
in conjunction with the use of double lumen tubes for thoracic anesthesia: a prospective study.
Among them, 3 (2.1%) patients were intubated with fiberoptic bronchoscopy
, 13 (8.8%) with Macintosh laryngoscopy and 131 (89.1%) with Airtraq laryngoscopy (Table-I).
In our case, we believe that CMAC videolaryngoscopy, and also fiberoptic bronchoscopy
, were adequate options considering that the main compromise was infraglottic and there was no critical the upper airway stenosis.
At the first admission, flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy
was performed, and the cytological findings in endobronchial ultrasound-guided transbronchial needle aspiration (EBUSTBNA) specimens obtained from the left hilar lymph node were classified as class V, squamous cell carcinoma.
was performed 1 week, 3 months after surgery.
expertise in fiberoptic bronchoscopy
techniques can master this new approach without difficulty.
The patient, therefore, underwent a fiberoptic bronchoscopy
, using a standard size Olympus BF F260 adult bronchoscope under local anesthesia and sedation, on the evening of 25 August 2013 with the help of a senior anaesthetist.
is usually warranted if AFB are not noticed at multiple sites (sputum, gastric aspirate, pleural fluid, ascites, urine, etc.) and there is evidence of pulmonary involvement on chest radiography.
Louis present 28 chapters that cover chest radiographs and computed tomography, pulmonary function testing, fiberoptic bronchoscopy
, noninvasive ventilation, and various pulmonary diseases and conditions, such as asthma, cough, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, pneumonia, infections, cystic fibrosis, and sleep-disordered breathing, as well as smoking cessation and lung transplantation.

In order to remove the foreign body in children, usually rigid bronchoscopy is used; in adults, rigid and fiberoptic bronchoscopy
can be used (3).
