"The book covers central airway disease processes, both benign and malignant. It contains very good illustrations, as well as videos that are very helpful in understanding the procedures. The consistent format of the chapters, starting with the case descriptions and continuing with discussion points, is helpful.
The expert commentary at the end of each chapter is a unique and helpful feature.  This book is very useful for interventional pulmonologists and thoracic surgeons. Particularly helpful are the descriptions and illustrations of the actual procedures. " - Mohammed  said Ghanamah, MD(University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
