Technique and Equipment in Transbronchial Cryobiopsy

  • Sara Colella
Chapter

Abstract

Sedation/anaesthesia, airway management, patient ventilation, different types of bronchial blockers, the role of fluoroscopic guidance, different cryogenic gases and cryoprobes are all components that need to be discussed in order to standardize the procedure. Eventually biotic strategies (where a TBLC should be carried out and how many samples should be taken, the freezing time) and how to manage the TBLC samples will be discussed.
