Paper Abstract

Our experience with Nd YAG Laser in bronchology is now based on over 1500 endoscopic resections. L. TOTY had previously carried out animal experiments to asseq5the possibilities of this new technique. The first patient was operated on in November 1978. Once the first teething troubles of any new technique were solved, its indications were soon determined. All technical difficulties were successively, if not completely mastered, at least overcome. As a result, in the course of the past four years, A. COLCHEN and I, with the help of our anestheeic colleagues, have been able to improve both the method and the instrumentation.
