- Interventional Pulmonology
Both diagnostic and therapeutic interventional procedures including Trans-bronchial Needle Aspiration (TBNA), Trans-bronchial Lung Biopsy (TBLB) and Removal of foreign body are carried out at the department.
- The most advanced Interventional Pulmonology procedures carried out at the department include:
- Bronchoscopic Argon Plasma Coagulation
- 1.Bronchoscopic Electrocautery
- 2.Tracheo-bronchial stenting
- 3.Rigid Bronchoscopy
- 4.Bronchoscopic Laser Ablation
- 5.Cryotherapy & Cryo ablation with Cryobiopsy
Endobronchial placement of mediastinal lymph nodes & peripheral lesion with radial & linear probe.
- Medical Thoracoscopy
Involves examination of pleural space with the help of insertion of an endoscope like device called a thoracoscope through a little hole in the chest.
- Pleural Aspiration
Done for the diagnosis of pleural diseases as well as for providing therapeutic benefit in cases of few of the respiratory conditions.
- Intercostal Drain
Some of the diseases of pleura involve accumulation of pus/air/fluid in the chest cavity and cause compression of the lungs and for this the pus needs to be drained out with the help of a pigtail or a thin tube.
- Pleural Hypertension
Involves Diagnosis and Management of Right Heart Catheterization.
- Non – Invasive Ventilation
Ventilation is achieved non-invasively with positive pressure devices like BiPAP.
- Pulmonary Function Tests (PFT)
These are the tests done to assess the functional status of lungs with the help of Spirometers and detect the cause of breathlessness.
