Kyle Bramley discusses Robotic assisted bronchoscopy biopsy presentation at CHEST
Oct 11 2018
Dr Kyle Bramley is interviewed at CHEST about the study presented at CHEST by Alex Chen, M.D. on robotic assisted bronchscopic biopsy of peripheral pulmonary lesions in a cadaveric model with simulated tumor targets.
Complications from bronchoscopy are rare and most often minor, but if they occur, may include breathing difficulty, vocal cord spasm, hoarseness, slight fever, vomiting, dizziness, bronchial spasm, infection, low blood oxygen, bleeding from biopsied site, or an allergic reaction to medications. Only rarely do patients experience other more serious complications (for example, collapsed lung, respiratory failure, heart attack and/or cardiac arrhythmia).
