Overview

The main areas of bronchology and bronchoesophagology are hypopharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchus and esophagus and their functions as pathways of air, foods and phonation. These functions will be disturbed by infection, trauma, tumor, nerve paralysis and disorders of the central nervous system. These congresses addressed all aspects of bronchology and bronchoesophagology and also included sessions on others areas of interventional pulmonology, such as thoracoscopy. The congresses also highlighted major recent developments in telemedicine and minimally invasive diagnosis and surgery, such as the use of CCD chip technology in videoendoscopy. Future developments were addressed in two special lectures: "Micromachine" by Mr. Mizuno (Japan) and "Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease" by Prof. Dent (Australia).

Editorial Reviews

Invited lectures, symposia, and and oral presentations—a total of 413 contributions—represent the June 2000 congress in Yokohama, Japan, which attracted participants from 37 countries and from various backgrounds, including pulmonology, pediatrics, ENT, gastroenterology, surgery, anesthesiology, and radiology, among other specialties. Among the topics, each covered in several or more contributions: bronchoscopy; stenting controversies; diagnostic thoracoscopy; dysphagia; cancers of various organs; gastroesophageal reflux; asthma; congenital abnormalities; imaging; infectious diseases; laryngeal, pharyngeal, and glottic diseases; and laryngeal speech. The volume has been attentively prepared: figures (including some in color) are clearly reproduced; each contribution includes an abstract, references, and contact information; and, unusual for a proceedings volume, there is a subject index.
