About this Book

Written by some of the world's leading practitioners - and pioneers - in the field, Thoracic Endoscopy is the first up-to-the-minute, expert reference for clinicians with a solid foundation in diagnostic bronchoscopy and chest medicine needing to extend their clinical expertise in response to two decades of rapid development.

Thoracic Endoscopy covers four key areas of practice:

  • 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.
