The authors describe results of initial bronchoscopy therapy (IBT) for endobronchial carcinoids aimed at relieving obstruction, accurate subtyping, and potentially complete eradication.  After a minimum follow-up of 5 years, 42% of patients were spared surgical therapy, having had no evidence of local or distant recurrence (42/83 with typical histology, 5/29 with atypical histology).
