Computed-tomographic and conventional linear-tomographic evaluation of tracheobronchial lesions for laser photoresection.

Abstract

Laser therapy is a new modality for treatment of airway lesions. We examined 18 patients prior to laser photoresection of tracheobronchial lesions. Thirteen had cancers involving the distal trachea, carina, and/or proximal bronchi; five had benign lesions of the middle or proximal trachea. Each patient was examined by conventional linear tomography (CLT… (More)
