Abstract

Bronchoscopy has evolved to play a pivotal role in the diagnosis and treatment of many diseases and conditions. The further development of new techniques and equipment will only add to the importance of this diagnostic and therapeutic modality. The development of interventional bronchoscopy has led to a "rediscovery" of rigidbronchoscopy skills among pulmonary physicians. An appreciation of the capabilities and limitations of bronchoscopy allows all respiratory specialists to provide optimal management of patients suffering from pulmonary related disorders.
