growth was seen bronchial brushing, washings and biopsy were done in sequence.
Antibacterial therapy was modified to intravenous meropenem plus intrabronchial
colistin and then adjusted to tazocillin and tobramycin.
Although rapidly absorbed, intrabronchial
presence of any high-osmolar water-soluble radiographic contrast media is extremely toxic and can induce severe bronchial irritation, immediate pulmonary edema, and delayed mild-to-moderate pleural effusions.
Key deviations from the BTS guidelines included using noncontrast CT scan for further diagnostic imaging of an aspirated unilateral pleural effusion, narrow bore (8 F) chest tube and Heimlich valve insertion for outpatient management of primary spontaneous pneumothorax, and use of intrabronchial
valves for prolonged air leaks (see Supplementary Materials (available here)).

Moreover, bleeding can induce coughs, which increase the intrabronchial
pressure, leading to air embolism.

The development of a diverticulum or tracheocele in these relatively weak areas is possible, particularly if there is an infection in the mucous membrane and chronic cough with increased intrabronchial
pressure (4, 8).
According to a case report on a patient with severe pulmonary bleeding due to vascular malformation, intrabronchial
epinephrine and cold saline lavage failed to control bleeding, while the endobronchial instillation of tranexamic acid was successful in bleeding control.
Local delivery introduces cells into the lung via intratracheal (IT) or intrabronchial
