Bronchiectasis is a disease defined by abnormal dilation of the bronchi, which is a result of recurrent infections and/or chronic inflammation. A lobectomy is the surgical removal of one lobe of a lung and reduces the symptoms of bronchiectasis. Patients who undergo this surgery are more likely to have long-term pulmonary limitations. There is little to no literature regarding the long term treatment of patients who underwent multiple lobectomies. The purpose of this case report was to describe an appropriate intervention program for an 82-year-old female who suffered from multiple pulmonary complications secondary to multiple lobectomies.
