Abstract

Many studies have demonstrated short-term physiologic benefits and improvements in various measures of health-related quality of life (HRQOL) after lung volume reduction surgery (LVRS). However, LVRS involves short-term risks of morbidity, disability, and mortality. Few reports describe the long-term effects of LVRS on patients with emphysema. Rational decision making about LVRS depends on whether the expected improvement in quality of life from LVRS outweighs the expected disability and morbidity and the potential mortality from the procedure. This report describes the HRQOL and survival outcomes of patients with emphysema after LVRS.
