BRONCOCON 2016 – 21st Annual Congress of the Indian Association for bronchology

April 28 - April 30


21st Annual Congress of the Indian Association for Bronchology  is  scheduled to be held on April 28th – 30th, 2016. The annual congress initially slated for 2015 had to be postponed as a result of the unprecedented  floods that hit the capital city of Srinagar causing mammoth devastation of life and property. Fortunately the turnaround has been amazingly quick and we are back to our beautiful best.

The knowledge of bronchoscopy has made rapid strides in the past few decades with the ever increasing spectrum of interventional bronchoscopy and thoracosopy. These procedures have become integral to any good unit of pulmonary medicine and the advances have led to a sea change in our practice of the medicine of the airways. The role of the bronchoscopist in diagnosis, treatment and palliation of tracheobronchial disease has been witnessing a steady surge and the blending of technological advances into clinical practice have exponentially increased the role of a bronchoscopist. From the control of hemoptysis to palliating an obstructed airway, from the conventional transbronchial needle aspiration to electromagnetic navigation and from the routine histopathology and cytology to molecular diagnosis on retrieved tissues; the possibilities are immense. These treads have necessitated the steady brushing up of one’s skills and acquiring a few more. The annual conference of the Indian Association for Bronchology accords this very opportunity to the pulmonolgists of our country so as to acquire newer skills and update their knowledge of the field.  During the conference, there will be didactic lectures, keynote addresses, interactive sessions, and expert panel discussions on the vexing clinical problems that face us every day. There will also be plenty of opportunities to meet with the international and expert national faculty so as to connect and network to enhance your clinical, educational, and research practices.
