BTOG 2024 | Addressing malignant central airway obstruction

Ricky Thakrar, MBBs, PhD IBSc, University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, London, UK, delves into the critical issue of central airway obstruction, where the large airways like the trachea and main bronchi become blocked, often causing distressing symptoms like cough, breathlessness, wheezing, and stridor. He emphasizes that this obstruction can lead to serious complications such as lung collapse and recurrent infections. While the prevalence of central airway obstruction among lung cancer patients has decreased due to changes in cancer subtypes, it remains a significant clinical concern, necessitating urgent bronchoscopic interventions for effective treatment. This interview took place at the BTOG 2024 congress in Belfast, UK.
