Bronchiectasis Complicating Lung Volume Reduction Coil Treatment.

Dombret MC, Marceau A, Bunel V, Debray MP, Deslée G, Mal H, Leroy S
Endoscopic lung volume reduction has emerged over the past several years as a promising technique to improve the respiratory functional status of patients with advanced emphysema. Nevertheless, the procedure may be associated with various complications; among them, the development of bronchiectasis related to the coils has not yet been described. We report the case of a patient with emphysema who developed localized bronchiectasis at the site of coil insertion several months after lung volume reduction coil treatment.
