Functional results of unilateral lung volume reduction surgery in alpha1-antitrypsin deficient patients

Abstract

Lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS) has been shown to improve lung function and exercise tolerance in patients with severe emphysema. Some predictors of poor outcome have been described but the role of alpha1-antitrypsin (alpha1-AT) deficiency is still not well known. The aim of this study was to analyze the results of unilateral LVRS in our center… (More)
