Bronchoscopy is the most important tool in diagnosis of respiratory diseases, but also provides therapeutic options in various disorders. Besides hemoptysis, airway stenoses are a frequent indication for therapeutic bronchoscopy interventions. Thereby, a broad spectrum of endoscopic techniques including electrocautery, argon plasma coagulation, laser treatment, cryosurgery and stent implantation is available.
