Rigid Bronchoscopy

Rigid Bronchoscopy in Goa

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, or assist in inserting silicone stents. The procedure is usually performed in an operating room, with the patient under general anaesthesia. Rigid bronchoscopy is often combined with flexible bronchoscopy to achieve optimum airway visibility and suctioning. Rigid Bronchoscopy in Goa is available at Manipal Hospitals, visit today.
