Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Endobronchial lipomas are rare benign tumours that cause bronchial obstruction, leading to extensive distal parenchymal damage. This report describes the endoscopic removal of a right main bronchus lipoma with a rigid endoscope and snare technique in a high-risk patient. The patient was successfully treated without complication. Endoscopic reaction is the preferred therapeutic approach for this subgroup of patients.
