Let’s understand more about pulmonary surgeries.

What are the major pulmonary surgeries?

Pulmonary function issues can arise in case of tumours or cancer, trauma, or fluid buildup. Surgery & other forms of treatment, such as radiation therapy in case of lung cancer, may be performed in such cases. Lung replacement in case of lung failure when no other treatment method is working can also be major pulmonary surgery. Blebs or cavities in the lungs where air can get trapped, and if ruptured, can cause a collapse in severe cases, which also need Pulmonary surgeries as the best resort.

Here, we have enlisted some common major pulmonary surgeries.

  • Lung Biopsy (diagnostic procedure)
  • Lobectomy (remove one or more lobes of a lung)
  • Lung Transplant
  • Pneumonectomy (removal of a diseased or failed lung)
  • Surgery to prevent the return & buildup of fluid to the chest (pleurodesis)
  • Wedge resection (remove part of a lobe in a lung)
  • Surgery to remove leaked blood in the chest cavity
  • Surgery to remove small balloon-like tissues that can cause lung collapse
