Endoscopy Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Thoracic Endoscopy
Advances in Interventional Pulmonology
edited by Michael J. Simoff

Thoracic Endoscopy is the first up-to-the-minute, expert reference for clinicians with a solid foundation in diagnostic bronchoscopy and chest medicine needing to extend their clinical expertise in response to two decades of rapid development.

Thoracic Endoscopy cover four key areas:

  • advanced diagnostic bronchoscopy
  • the latest techniques for interventional bronchoscopy including the traditional rigid bronchoscopy techniques, ablative instruments and stents and a discussion of endobronchial lung reduction and gene therapy
  • a window to the pleura, covering the field of pleuroscopy and the advances in diagnosis and treatment
  • clinical problems and methodologies, and strategies for solving them using interventional techniques
