[Efficiency after radical surgery for bronchectasis (author's transl)].

Abstract

The maximally possible efficiency as well as the O2-supply (VO2 max) necessary for this purpose comes in patients with resection of 1 to 5 segments to 25 to 30% less than in healthy persons. The loss of 6 to 10 segments lowers the capacity of compensation by 40%. Persisting bronchitis decreases this mechanism for 10 to 12% more.
