Effect of peribronchial lung parenchyma on bronchial collapsibility during the maximum expiration was studied in the dog lung. Maximum expiratory flow volume curve (MEFVC) was obtained from dogs with intact parenchyma (I), parenchyma being dissected away from main lobar bronchi 1.5 cm in depth (II) and the dissected parenchyma glued to the bronchi with adhesive substance (III). Lung elastic pressure-volume curve and airway resistance were almost unchanged in the three conditions. Maximum… CONTINUE READING
