ABSTRACT Dez operações foram realizadas em oito doentes portadores de doença bolhosa. A drenagem fechada da bolha foi a operação feita em todos os doentes. Esta técnica, descrita inicialmente por Monaldi para o tratamento de abscessos pulmonares tuberculosos, foi utilizada com algumas modificações. Melhora dos sintomas e colapso total das bolhas foi obtido em nove procedimentos. Não houve mortalidade e os resultados foram compensadores. Esta técnica é um método simples de descompressão da bolha através de um procedimento operatório pouco invasivo. A técnica de drenagem da bolha tem ainda as seguintes vantagens: não há ressecções de tecido pulmonar e a pequena incisão realizada após anestesia local é bem tolerada pelo doente com função pulmonar crítica.

    ABSTRACT: Lack of Brazilian publications regarding this disease in Brazil led us to perform the current work to describe the historical evolution and to analyze results of the surgical treatment of Giant Emphysematous Lung Bullae at the Santa Casa de São Paulo. We have retrospectively assessed, between January 1979 and June 2005, the medical records of 83 patients submitted to one of four surgical modalities: the thoracoscopic bullectomy, VATS bullectomy, VATS bullae drainage and bullae drainage with local anesthesia, totaling 92 surgeries. Parameters analyzed were hospitalization time, post-surgical complications, perioperative and late mortality in addition to clinical and functional pre- and post- surgical parameters. Morbidity was 40.2% and early post-surgical mortality 4.3%. Post-surgical complications were associated to the patient's morbid history. Factors such as diffuse pulmonary emphysema, multiple bullae and age did not influence early complications. There was an improvement in the symptomatology and functional results in 94.5% of the patients. There was no return on he operated bullae. Mortality five years after surgery was of 18.3% and arose, primarily from clinical progression of the diffuse pulmonary emphysema. Several surgical modalities were performed to treat the emphysematous lung bullae, from bullectomy to thoracotomy, at the initial phase until drainage of the bullae with local anesthesia and sprayed talc, the currently preferred modality. Regardless of the method used, however, notwithstanding the relatively high morbidity, post-surgical results are highly favorable with low mortality and uncontestable clinical-functional improvement of the operated patients.

    ABSTRACT: We present a protocol to test a new surgical procedure for the treatment of patients with diffuse lung emphysema who, after having received the golden standard treatment (pulmonary rehabilitation), continue to present respiratory failure with disabling dyspnea. Ten patients with severe lung hyperinflation will be evaluated. The method proposed is designed to create alternative expiratory passages for air trapped in the emphysematous lung by draining the lung parenchyma, thereby establishing communication between the alveoli and the external environment. The ten patients selected will be required to meet the inclusion criteria and to give written informed consent. Those ten patients will be included in the study pending the approval of the Ethics in Research Committee of the São Paulo Santa Casa School of Medicine, São Paulo, Brazil. The protocol we will employ in order to evaluate the proposed procedure is feasible and will show whether debilitated patients suffering from diffuse pulmonary emphysema can benefit from this procedure, which could represent an alternative to lung transplant or lung volume reduction surgery, the only options currently available.
