In some instances, the presence of active infection may preclude the detection of actual underlying disease. A repeat procedure after treatment with appropriate antibiotics is strongly advised in those cases. Bronchoscopy is frequently performed to evaluate central airways in patients with tracheal and esophageal cancers. Bronchoscopic ﬁndings may lead to a more extensive surgery in some cases and preclude surgery in other cases . Bronchoscopic ﬁndings depend on the extent of airway invasion with surrounding mediastinal tumors.
Virtual bronchoscopy shows concentric narrowing of the airways from the proximal (d) and distal (e) sides of stenosis. f Direct visual inspection shows high-grade tracheal stenosis, but in such a patient, the length of the narrowed tracheal segment and the status of airways distal to stenosis are difﬁcult to ascertain during bronchoscopy. Complimentary information from multiplanar reconstruction and virtual bronchoscopy is very helpful in the treatment planning of such challenging patients. Reprinted from Morshed et al.
