Chronic cough, bronchitis or repeated bronchitis ... are symptoms that may suggest bronchial dilatation.
The dilation of the bronchi is a disease that corresponds to a dilation of the size of the bronchi. Various factors can cause dilation of the mucous membranes of the bronchi and trigger bronchial inflammation.
The dilatation of the bronchi is said diffuse when it touches several places of the lungs, or localized when it concerns a single lobe of the lung.The dilation of the bronchi (also: bronchiectasis, DDB) is part of obstructive bronchopulmonary diseases. It is a chronic disease that can occur at any age but often begins during childhood.
The course of the disease is extremely variable, depending on the cause and lesions. If left untreated, bronchial dilatation can lead to the risk of repeated bronchial infections or even respiratory failure.It is therefore important to consult a doctor as soon as the first signs of the disease appear.
In the presence of a chronic cough, sputum or frequent bronchitis, it will be necessary to make examinations to analyze the caliber of the bronchi and to understand how to intervene to avoid any respiratory complication.
We can then intervene, the doctor prescribing a symptomatic treatment, in association with a treatment of the cause which is at the origin of the bronchial dilatation, when it is still possible.You want to react, to give your testimony or to ask a question?
