Abstract

Because of its freezing characteristics, cryotherapy can be used to remove water containing foreign bodies. We describe a patient with massive hemoptysis in whom a large endobronchial blood clot was successfully removed using cryotherapy. This technique is probably the treatment of choice for removal of large clot from the airways.
