Abstract

Endobronchial electrocautery is the application of heat, produced by electrical current, via the bronchoscope to treat tumor tissue using a probe or a snare. Tumors located in the central airways can be treated with various bronchoscopic techniques such as lasers (Nd:YAG, Argon, KTP, CO2), photodynamic therapy (PDT), brachytherapy, cryotherapy and electrocautery. Electrocautery is an alternative treatment technique for immediate debulking of intraluminal tumor and has a curative potential in patients with radiologically occult cancer. The various techniques of electrocautery may suit the personal experience and preference of every bronchoscopist: the rigid technique, the fiberoptic method or the noncontact mode of argon plasma coagulation. Simple logistics, relatively cheap equipment and additional instruments improve its cost-effectiveness. With recognition of the population at risk and the awareness of the potential benefit of bronchoscopic intervention in general, bronchoscopic electrocautery will increasingly become a standard part of lung cancer care.
