Abstract

Flexible fiberoptic bronchoscopy has been a major advance in the non-operative diagnosis of pulmonary lesions. The technique is simple and safe so that proficiency can be gained rapidly. However, in the initial stages the diagnostic results are not as good as expected. The authors report their findings in the first hundred bronchoscopies performed by them, in patients with pulmonary disease of diverse etiology. The majority of these patients were cases of lung cancer. In the detection and diagnosis of lung cancer the authors found the procedure to be particularly useful.
