  • Pulmonary Disorder

    Pulmonary rehabilitation is the use of exercise, education, and behavioral intervention to improve how well people with chronic lung disease can function in daily life and to enhance their quality of life. Pulmonary rehabilitation is a program designed for people who have chronic lung disease. Its primary goal is to[…][]

  • Lung Abscess

    INTRODUCTION: Lung abscess is a commonly encountered entity in South-East Asia but not much data regarding its outcome is available. The objective of this study was to identify the factors associated with increased mortality in patients diagnosed with lung abscess in a tertiary care center of Karachi, Pakistan.[…][]

We report what we believe to be the first case of bronchiectasis resulting from a PAA, which in turn developed after a previous Senning procedure for transposition of the great vessels during infancy. The patient had bronchiectasis secondary to[…][]
