Diagnosis and Treatment of Pulmonary Bullae


Bullae refer to bullae in the lungs. The diagnosis of bullae includes changes in respiratory rhythm, thin-walled cavities in the lungs, and decreased lung function.

1. Changes in respiratory rhythm

Pulmonary bullae may have no obvious symptoms, but some more severe cases may affect respiratory function, causing shortness of breath and chest tightness.

2. Thin-walled cavities in the lungs

The diagnosis of pulmonary bullae often needs to be confirmed through imaging examinations. During X-ray, CT and other examinations, thin-walled cavities containing gas can be found in the lungs.

3. Decreased lung function

Some patients will find decreased lung function during pulmonary function tests due to damage to their alveoli.

Pulmonary bullae can be treated through general treatment, surgical treatment, drug treatment, etc.

1. General treatment

It is important for smokers to quit smoking because smoking can worsen the symptoms of bullae and increase the risk of complications. At the same time, regular imaging examinations are required to monitor changes in the bullae.

2. Surgical treatment

For patients with large bullae or obvious symptoms, thoracoscopic surgery may be required to remove the lesions, which can reduce and relieve clinical symptoms.

3. Drug treatment

Patients can use amoxicillin, cefixime, ceftriaxone sodium and other drugs to prevent infection after surgery.
