He made a similar request of the Olympus Optical Company, also in Tokyo, in late 1965. In the manufacturing of the flexible bronchofiberscope, the most serious problem to overcome was the image resolution of the fiberoptic imaging bundle. To satisfy this requirement, it was necessary to make the size of each optical glass fiber as thin as possible; thus the size of the 1611 fiberoptic in the gastrointestinal fiberscopes had to be reduced to 1411. Beginning in 1964, the first of a series of experimental prototypes was produced.

In 1890, he constructed the first endoscope worthy of the name "ror esophagoscop," and in 1904, he constructed the first American bronchoscope. Jackson equipped his bronchoscope with a light carrier, using a miniaturized electric Mignon bulb at the distal end, and with an additional suction channel. Stimulated by many patients suffering from aspiration of foreign bodies, he invented many instruments for bronchoscopic retrieval [32]. In 1907, he published the first systematic textbook on bronchoesophagology, which he dedicated to Gustav Killian, whom he called the "father of Figure 4 Chevalier Jackson.

Most of the patients became chronically ill after aspiration of a foreign body. They developed atelectasis, chronic pneumonia, and hemorrhage and half of them died if untreated. Surgical procedures were restricted to pneumotomy as the bronchus was often occluded by extensive solid scar tissue [24]. This procedure carried a very high mortality rate. Lobectomy and pneumonectomy could not be performed because techniques for safe closure of the bronchial stump had not been developed. Copyrighted Material Herth et al.
