Abstract
Cryoprobe biopsies are routinely performed by the interventional pulmonologist. Diagnostic yields are larger, with complication rates that are equal to or lower than that of traditional forceps biopsies. We will specifically evaluate one instance where a cryoprobe biopsy led to an alveolo-pleural fistula that did not resolve with simple tube thoracostomy. An endobronchial valve was placed and successfully resolved the pneumothorax and persistent air leak.
