Extract

Introduction: Flexible bronchoscopy (FB) is a recognized safe diagnostic and therapeutic procedure, useful in the assessment of lower respiratory tract and lung parenchyma. However, few data with conflicting results is available on the impact of age on indications and complications associated with FB, namely in the very elderly population, usually a minor sample. This study retrospectively compares the indications and complications of FB in very elderly patients (≥85 years old) with younger ones.
