Endobronchial fires are a rare complication of Nd-YAG laser photoresection. Short-term morbidity is secondary to sloughing mucosa and mucous plugging. Aggressive pulmonary hygiene, including frequent bronchoscopies and possibly a tracheostomy, may be required. The major long-term complication is obstruction of the airways from granulation tissue. Long-term follow-up is required to evaluate and treat clinically significant granulation tissue in the airways.
