Catheters, Bronchial, Balloon, Hemostatic
Definition : Balloon bronchial catheters designed to reduce bronchial tamponade. These catheters are usually introduced through the working channel of a flexible fiberoptic bronchoscope or through a guide wire under bronchoscopic observation. Hemostatic balloon bronchial catheters are used to control pulmonary bleeding (hemoptysis) as a result of illness, trauma, or pulmonary artery perforation during surgical procedures.
