Abstract

The occurrence of a bronchopleural fistula (BPF) continues to represent a challenging management problem, and is associated with high morbidity and mortality. Bronchoscopic closure of BPF with instillation of n-butyl-cyanoacrylate glue is an effective, economical, minimally invasive and safe technique for managing BPFs. We present a case that was successfully treated with this method.
