Photodynamic remedy (PDT) is an historic and cutting-edge era. More than 4000 years ago, it become recorded that Psoralea corylifolia L. become used to deal with pores and skin diseases. However, the clinical exploration of PDT started withinside the mid-nineteenth century. In the overdue 1970s, PDT steadily have become a brand new era for the remedy of tumors, and become accepted through many nations together with the United States, UK, France, Germany, and Japan for the remedy of malignant tumors. In 1998, americaA FDA accepted Photofrin for the remedy of each early and obstructive bronchogenic carcinoma [1].

The home hematoporphyrin (presently referred to as HiPorfin) become accepted through the National Medical Products Administration for most cancers remedy in 2001. With the improvement of interventional pulmonology, PDT is steadily getting used withinside the remedy of breathing malignant tumors due to its low degree of trauma, excessive specificity, and compatibility with conventional or not unusualplace therapies. However, at present, the records of scientific evidence-primarily based totally medication for PDT implemented in valuable airway tumors could be very limited, bobbing up especially from case reviews or collection of case research, which lack consensus on scientific analysis and remedy [2].

In 2010, academician Gu Ying recruited home professionals to put up the “Standard Clinical Operating Procedures” for photodynamic remedy, which laid a strong basis for selling the scientific software of PDT In order to similarly disseminate China's enjoy the Tumor Photodynamic Therapy Committee of China Anti-Cancer Association and the World Endoscopy Association-Respiratory Endoscopy Association invited professionals from applicable fields to shape an professional committee and broaden an professional consensus primarily based totally on global studies progress, Chinese scientific enjoy and studies repute through looking PubMed, Embase, Cochrane Library and Chinese Journal Full-textual content Database (CJFD), China Science and Technology Journal Database and WanFang database, etc. After numerous rounds of debate and revision through the professional committee, a consensus becomes formulated after the vote for reference through physicians in breathing, oncology and different associated disciplines to consult the exercise of tumor photodynamic remedy [3-4].

Regular assessment must be performed earlier than and after remedy. Each assessment calls for simple and contrast-more desirable chest CT scan, bronchoscopy, and tissue biopsy as an goal assessment basis. We used the assessment standards for photodynamic remedy of breathing tumors (2019 edition). Based on an in depth look at of the efficacy assessment requirements for photodynamic remedy at domestic and abroad, and the Response Evaluation Criteria in Solid Tumours (RECIST) requirements and WHO requirements, we reached the subsequent consensus [5]


For a huge tumor withinside the valuable airway that's blocking off the lumen, the aggregate of inflexible lens cutting, snaring and ligation of electrical snare, electric powered needle cutting, APC, laser ablation, carbon dioxide freezing and different interventional strategies may be used to fast dispose of the lesions within side the tracheobronchial cavity, and the stump of the lesion is handled with PDT, which could acquire an amazing healing effect.
