STUDY OBJECTIVES To compare the accuracy of virtual bronchoscopy (VB) with fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FOB) and pulmonary function testing (PFT) for the assessment of tracheal stenosis and bronchial anastomotic stenosis. DESIGN Prospective case series. SETTING Pulmonary institute of major tertiary university-affiliated center. PATIENTS The study group included 10 lung transplant recipients and 13 patients with central airway stenosis. INTERVENTIONS All patients underwent PFT, VB, and FOB… CONTINUE READING
