A new implantation device for endobronchial brachytherapy is described. This implantation system is flexible and can be easily passed through the suction channel of a flexible bronchofiberscope (FBF) for radionucleide implantation of the tumor. All four patients implanted using this system, experienced excellent palliation of their symptoms. We think that the flexible system described is an improvement over the rigid system for endobronchial implantation in most patients.
