Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Introduction: The field of interventional pulmonology (IP) is a rapidly maturing subspecialty of pulmonary medicine, which emphasizes advanced diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopy for the evaluation and management of central airway obstruction, mediastinal/hilar adenopathy and lung nodules/masses, as well as minimally invasive diagnostic and therapeutic pleural procedures. Areas covered: This review describes advances in diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopic techniques. Expert commentary: In the past decade, there has been a remarkable growth in available technology and equipment, as well as clinical and translational research efforts focused on patient-centered outcomes. Furthermore, the recent establishment of a uniform accreditation standard for all IP fellowship programs in the United States was an important step in the continued evolution of this subspecialty of pulmonary medicine.
