Doctors for Bronchus in Clement Town, Dehradun
ratings and reviews)
Bronchus is the airway in the respiratory tract that conducts air to the lungs. The human body has the right bronchus and the left bronchus, one for each lung. The right main bronchus is wider, shorter and more vertical compared to the left bronchus. The left main bronchus is smaller in function but longer than the right. Bronchitis and asthma are common infections that affect the bronchus. Bronchitis is caused by inflammation of the bronchi, while asthma results in constriction of the bronchi.
HOW IS BRONCHUS DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis of any infection to the bronchus can be done through physical examination and by listening to the lungs for any abnormal sounds or blockage of airways. Pulmonologists may order for a chest X-ray to confirm diagnosis.
HOW IS BRONCHUS TREATED?
The treatment is based on the severity of symptoms and ranges from observation to right upper lobectomy. A tumor is removed through bronchoscopic surgery; open lung surgery; or video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS), a form of minimally invasive surgery. The tumor can also be removed by the bronchoscope using a laser.
