Rigid Bronchoscopy and Tumor Debulking
Rigid bronchoscopy is an invasive procedure that is utilised to visualise the oropharynx, larynx, vocal cords, and tracheal bronchial tree. It is performed for both the diagnosis and treatment of lung disorders. The procedure may be performed in an endoscopy suite with available anaesthesia, but more appropriately in the operating room, and rarely in the ICU. It is frequently combined with flexible bronchoscopy to acquire and maintain better distal airway visualisation and suctioning.
