Resumen

La creación de broncofibroscopio ha constituido una ayuda muy importante en el diagnóstico de las enfermedades broncopulmonares. Una de sus principales características es su flexibilidad que unida al calibre reducido del tubo, permite penetrar profundamente en el árbol bronquial. Como consecuencia la nomenclatura tradicional se hace muy engorrosa para designar los bronquios más periféricos. Proponemos un nuevo sistema de nomenclatura práctico y de fácil memorización.

Summary

The development of bronchofiberscopes has constituted an important help in the diagnosis of bronchopulmonary diaseases. One of its main characteristics is its flexibility which added to the very reduced size of the tube allows for a deep penetration into the bronchial tree. As a result, the classic nomenclature has become very bothersome to describe the most peripheral bronchia. Here we propose a new system of nomenclature both practical and easy to memorize.
