    Surgical bullectomy is the treatment of choice for giant emphysematous bullae; however, when a giant emphysematous bulla occupies the entire hemithorax, and the remaining lung is in a collapsed state for a long period, it is difficult to predict the surgical outcome preoperatively. We report a...

    Background: Bullectomy is preferred for the treatment of giant emphysematous bulla (GEB). For the surgically unfit candidates, bronchoscopic placement of one-way endobronchial valve (EBV) and intracavitary drainage of bulla have been considered as alternative strategies. Case presentation: In...

    Giant lung bullae have a large impact on respiratory mechanics and make ventilator management difficult in patients undergoing mechanical ventilation. The pathogenesis of lung bullae is varied. COPD-related emphysematous bullae are the most common type of lung bullae, whereas...
