Before tailored immunotherapeutic therapy in patients with pulmonary malignancies, high quality peripheral sampling is in order. Learn about the latest results from Prof. Herth and how he diagnoses peripheral pulmonary lesions with modern cryotechnology.
A histological option where you´ve had cytological sampling so far? Learn more about latest data on mediastinal cryobiopsy from Prof. Herth.
How to rapidly restore airway patency in a patient with a blood cast of the tracheobronchial tree? See Prof. Hetzel discuss how to perform cryoextraction of these blood clots.
To diagnose ILD, the flexible single-use cryoprobe with 1.7 mm was advanced into the periphery until the pleura and pulled back for 1cm. Fluoroscopy control was used for the positioning. After freezing for 5 seconds, … Continue reading Transbronchial cryobiopsy with rigid intubation for ILD diagnosis using flexible single-use cryoprobe and ERBECRYO® 2
The lung tumor was removed from its base with a monopolar snare and endoCUT Q (3-1-6). It was taken out of the lung with a flexible single-use cryoprobe 1.7 mm. More recanalization can be done … Continue reading Removal of a lung tumor with monopolar snare, flexible single-use cryoprobe and APC
Case history: Breast-cancer related mastectomy on the right side several years ago. Situation: Female patient admitted for further examination of fluid accumulation in the right pleural space. The dissemination of breast cancer had to be … Continue reading Pleuroscopic cryobiopsies using the flexible 1.7 mm single-use cryoprobe with ERBECRYO® 2
Dr. Stefan Barath, senior consultant and interventional lung oncologist at the Lund University Hospital, introduces us to his department, explains his working method and presents a transbronchial cryobiopsy with the new 2.4 mm and 1.1 … Continue reading Transbronchial cryobiopsy with single-use cryoprobe
Like cryobiopsies, the tumor can be frozen to the tip of the cryoprobe and removed. An effective cryorecanalization is thus possible in up to 91 % of the cases.
Argon plasma coagulation (APC) in flexible bronchoscopy is used to control bleeding in the tracheobronchial tract. See also in this case bleeding management with the flexible FiAPC® probe 1500 A after recanalization of an endobronchial … Continue reading Bleeding management after endobronchial recanalization with flexible FiAPC® probe 1500 A
The ERBECRYO® 2 is the next generation of cryo units and was designed with a focus on improved reproducibility for state-of-the-art flexible cryo applications. Several new features support ease-of-use and enhance the technical and clinical … Continue reading Flexible single-use cryoprobes for ERBECRYO® 2
