Bronchoscopy

Flexible Fiber optic Bronchoscopy:

Bronchoscopy is a procedure used to look inside the lungs’ airways, called the bronchi and bronchioles. The airways carry air from the trachea, or windpipe, to the lungs. During the procedure, Pulmonologist (Lung specialist) passes a thin, flexible tube called a bronchoscope through your nose (or sometimes your mouth), down your throat, and into your airways. If you have a breathing tube in Intensive care unit, the bronchoscope can be passed through the tube to your airways. The bronchoscope has a light and small camera connected to a video monitor that allows your doctor to see your windpipe tures. You’ll be given medicine to make you relaxed and sleepy during the procedure.

Overview Bronchoscopy usually is done to find the cause of a lung problem. Your doctor may take samples of mucus or tissue from your lungs during the procedure to test in a lab. Bronchoscopy may show a tumor, signs of an infection, excess mucus in the airways, the site of bleeding, or something blocking the airway, like a piece of food. Sometimes bronchoscopy is used to treat lung problems. It may be done to insert a stent in an airway. An airway stent is a small tube that holds the airway open. It’s used when a tumor or other condition blocks an airway. In children, the procedure most often is used to remove something blocking an airway. In some cases, it’s used to find out what’s causing a cough that has lasted for at least a few weeks.

Who Needs Bronchoscopy?

Bronchoscopy may show a tumor, signs of an infection, excess mucus in the airways, the site of bleeding, or something blocking your airway. Pulmonologist and chest physicians use this procedure to decide how to treat any lung problems that were found.

What are the complications?.

Bronchoscopy usually is a safe procedure. You may be hoarse and have a sore throat after the procedure. There’s a slight risk of minor bleeding or developing a fever or pneumonia. A rare, but more serious risk is a pneumothorax (noo-mo-THOR-aks), or collapsed lung can occur during lung biopsy. In this condition, air collects in the space around the lungs, which causes one or both lungs to collapse. Usually, this problem is easily treated.

Thoracoscopy/VATS

Medical Thoracoscopy , Video Assisted Thoracoscopy(VATS) & Pleurodesis:

Medical thoracoscopy is a minor operative procedure in which a small rigid caliber scope is introduced under local anesthesia into a pleural cavity(between our ribs and lungs) for diagnosis and treatment of pleural effusion(commonly known as water around lungs). Pleurodesis is a therapeutic procedure in which pleural space is glued together by a chemical reaction, either Talc or drugs. VATS is done under general anesthesia in Operation Theater where in 2 or more holes are made in between ribs to get lung biopsy, bullectomy, lobectomy, de cortication etc.

What are the key benefits of VATS : Just four one inch incisions (a traditional thoracotomy requires an incision of 10-14 inches as well as unavoidable injury to one or more ribs and damage to muscles) A one to two day hospital stay (patients of a typical thoracotomy require stays of 7-10 days)

Pig Tail Intercostal drinage(ICD) : ICD is a procedure where in a plastic tube is introduced to pleural space for drining of pleural fluid, pus (called Empyema), air(pneumothorax) or blood (hemothorax).
