Why Manipal?

With advanced technologies and a world-class respiratory critical care unit, our proficient interventional pulmonologists diagnose and treat adult as well as paediatric patients with interventional procedures, such as flexible bronchoscopy, rigid bronchoscopy, airway stenting, thoracoscopy and linear and radial EBUS.

Our specialists adopt a multidisciplinary approach that involves exhaustive collaborations with other specialists, such as lung surgeons, oncologists, and pathologists, to develop an individualized approach for accurately diagnosing and efficiently treating rare diseases, such as lung cancer, metastatic lung diseases, pleural effusions, sarcoidosis, pulmonary alveolar proteinosis and pulmonary amyloidosis. 

Our renowned pulmonologists have years of experience in performing complex airway interventions, early lung cancer diagnosis and staging with EBUS, spigot placement for BPF closures, cryolung biopsies for interstitial lung diseases and airway stenting for malignant and benign central airway obstruction.

Treatment & Procedures

Linear and Radial EBUS

Linear and Radial EBUS involve the use of a probe for accurately and quickly diagnosing mass or lung nodules that cannot be accessed via ultrasound and normal bronchoscopy. These procedures are usually performed after the administration of general anaesthesia and assess mediastinal lymphnodes/masses and peripheral lung lesions like infections and cancer.…

Medical Thoracoscopy and Indwelling…

Medical throracoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure used to examine the pleural cavity, which is basically the space between the two layers of tissue inside the lungs.

Rigid Bronchoscopy

Rigid bronchoscopy is used to diagnose and treat airway diseases, including lung infections, airway blockages and lung cancer. During a rigid bronchoscopy, a straight and hollow metal tube is inserted into the throat. High-resolution cameras and endoscopic instruments are then placed inside the tube to view the lungs and airways, take tissue samples,…

Interventional pulmonology techniques are often less invasive like bronchoscopy (a flexible endoscope that can be advanced through a patient’s windpipe) to perform procedures like placing a stent or performing a biopsy without surgery.

At Manipal Hospital Goa, our state-of the art interventional pulmonology services include comprehensive care for all pulmonary diseases including pleural disorders, bronchial asthma, interstitial lung diseases, COPD, and lung cancer. Few of the treatments are listed below:

  • Endo Bronchial Ablative Therapy with Electrosurgery and Argon Plasma Coagulation

This procedure is performed for treating patients with airway tumours- both benign and malignant.

  • Balloon Bronchoplasty

Balloon bronchoplasty is extremely central to the practice of interventional bronchoscopy. It is commonly performed along with rigid and flexible bronchoscopy. It may also be used with fluoroscopic guidance under direct vision or over a guide wire. This procedure is commonly recommended in conjunction with various other techniques, such as stent deployment and electrocautery. The balloon must be silicone based and be able to provide radial force while the inflation syringe should have a pressure gauge.

  • Bronchial Artery Embolisation

This procedure is usually recommended to treat patients diagnosed with massive hemoptysis – coughing up blood from the lungs – as this condition is generally a sign of a serious disease. 

  • Endobronchial Spigot

It is recommended for treating patients with bronchopleural fistula – a severe complication of lung cancer surgery and associated with a high mortality – and hemoptysis.

FAQ's

Pulmonary function tests (PFTs) are noninvasive tests that show how well the lungs are working. The tests measure lung volume, capacity, rates of flow, and gas exchange. This information can help your healthcare provider diagnose and decide the treatment of certain lung disorders.
