Transbronchial cryobiopsy in diffuse parenchymal lung diseaseClinical
Registration for this session is additional to the congress registration fee and is €122 on site, €110 standard.
Aims : Transbronchial cryobiopsy is a new modality that is used to obtain enough lung parenchyma tissue for diagnosing a variety of diffuse parenchymal lung diseases. Although the diagnostic yield is about 80%, this method associates with a significantly lower rate of complications than surgical lung biopsy. Its introduction into clinical practice could significantly improve the diagnosis and treatment of patients with these disorders.
