Bronchial Thermoplasty

Bronchial thermoplasty is a nonpharmacological procedure developed for the treatment of severe persistent asthma.

Bronchoscopic Lung Volume Reduction Surgery

Bronchoscopic lung volume reduction surgery is a minimally invasive procedure using endobronchial valves. These tiny devices are implanted in the airways of the lungs and act as one-way valves.

Electromagnetic Navigation Bronchoscopy

Electromagnetic navigation bronchoscopy is a procedure that uses electromagnetic technology, which allows steer ability and movability to obtain tissue samples of lung masses.

Endobronchial Ultrasound Bronchoscopy (EBUS)

Endobronchial ultrasound bronchoscopy (EBUS), is a procedure that is used to diagnose different types of lung disorders, including inflammation, infections or cancer.

Endobronchial Valve Placement

An endobronchial valve placement is a small, one-way valve that is implanted in an airway to treat one lung conditions.

Flexible Bronchoscopy

Trans bronchial cryobiopsy is a procedure for sampling lung parenchyma. This procedure entails using a flexible cryoprobe to rapidly freeze an area of peripheral lung, which is subsequently extracted as a cryobiopsy.

Tumor Destruction

Tumor destruction utilizes a high-frequency, alternating current within the targeted cancerous tissue to cause ionic agitation. This generates frictional heating leading to cancer cell destruction.
