Catheters, Bronchial, Balloon

Definition : Bronchial catheters designed with a balloon at or near the distal tip. These catheters are flexible synthetic hollow tubes that may be introduced directly (usually under fluoroscopic guidance) or through a bronchoscope in such a way that its distal tip reaches the bronchi, permitting the inflation of the balloon after introduction. Dedicated balloon bronchial catheters are available to treat benign stenosis and/or to control pulmonary bleeding (i.e., hemoptysis).
