Although the prevalence of bronchiectasis decreased significantly in developed countries, in less developed and in developing countries, it still represents a significant cause of morbidity and mortality. The localised form of bronchiectasis is the indication for surgical treatment if recurrent respiratory infections make normal life and professional activity impossible. Less frequently, the operation is necessary independently on the symptoms duration, if massive hemoptysis are life threatening for the patient. Compared with the period 10-15 years ago, the diagnostics of bronchiectasis changed in terms that bronchography has been replaced by high resolution CT scan. Owing to angiographic studies performed on sufficient number of patients, the patophysiology of bronchiectasis is furtherly highlited, but without significant changes in the process of patient selection. In the text, particular accent was given to situations that usually represent practical problems: billateral bronchiectasis, henioptysis, bronchiectasis after pleural empyema, abscending bronchiectasis and bronchiectasis in children. The outcome of the surgical treatment is good in 90% patients, with operative mortality that is comparable to that after lung resections for other indications.
