Pulmonary Interventions

Interventional pulmonology is a relatively new field in pulmonary medicine. Interventional pulmonology uses endoscopy and other tools to diagnose and treat conditions in the lungs and chest. Cardiothoracic and other surgeons also routinely perform interventional pulmonology procedures which include bronchoscopy, bronchoalveolar lavage, biopsy of lung or lymph node, bronchial stent, balloon bronchoplasty, pleuroscopy, thoracentesis, pleurodesis, indwelling pleural catheter, bronchoscopic thermoplasty.

Two recent advances in technology are extending the reach of interventional pulmonology procedures: Endobronchial ultrasound system (EBUS) & Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy.
