A technique to facilitate lung collapse in the presence of an occlusive endobronchial tumour
AbstractWe report on the occlusion of the bronchus of a non-ventilated lung by a bronchial carcinoid tumour. This prevented the collapse and atelectasis of the corresponding lung. Lung collapse was facilitated by guiding an epidural catheter past the lesion.
