Abstract

The role of interventional pulmonology in both the diagnostic and therapeutic aspects of haemopthysis is far to be completely defined. Even if we have to differentiate massive from mild and moderate bleeding it seems to be reasonable to asses that a bronchoscopy (fiberoptic or rigid) can be safely proposed in skilled centers with a wide range of immediate therapeutical interventional options, whether pneumological, either radiological or surgical
