Abstract

Closure of bronchopleural fistulas can be accomplished by applying fibrin glue through a flexible fiberoptic bronchoscope. The advantages of this method include the avoidance of general anesthesia and thoracotomy and the excellent extended access to the bronchial tree provided by the flexible bronchoscope.
