Objective: To select minimally stressful methods for patients with benign bronchial tumors, and evaluate interventional strategies in relation to location, size, character and morphology. Methods: We reviewed the indications and efficacy of various interventional bronchology techniques at our institution, including individual or combined laser resection, electrocautery, argon plasma coagulation and high radiofrequency snaring for the treatment of various types of benign bronchial tumors. Results: It is essential to treat endoscopically that the tumor is visible and has a stalk and not invade beyond bronchial wall. By using combined techniques, no complications or recurrences were encountered. Conclusions: Interventional bronchology techniques for benign bronchial tumors can be simple and safe, and therapeutic strategies should be designed in relation to location, size, character and morphology of tumors.
