AJATA-CHURA, Alfredo. Radiological and pulmonary function clinical demographic characteristics in patients with bronchiectasias. Cuad. - Hosp. Clín. [online]. 2021, vol.62, n.1, pp.38-45. ISSN 1562-6776.

ABSTRACT The purpose of this document is to determine the main epidemiological and clinical characteristics of patients with bronchiectasis at the Lung Clinic. METH0D: Observational, retrospective study. The medical records of 23 patients diagnosed with bronchial dilation were reviewed. RESULTS: The results ofthe 23 patients studied, with a mean age of49,4 ± 3,87years, 13 correspond to the femaie sexand 10to the male sex, indicate that the time ofevoiution ofthe disease from the diagnosis of the initial pathology is: 17,3 ± 2,92 years. Tuberculosis is the main etiology in 15 patients (65,2%). The most frequent clinical manifestations were cough and mucopurulent expectoration of severa! years in most of the patients, to which we must add dyspnea and hemoptysis, pulmonary auscultation reveáis the presence ofcrepitus in 17 patients (73,9%). High Resoiution Chest Tomography distinguishes two types of bronchiectasis: the saccular or cystic and the cylindrical, the localization is unilobar, bilobar and multilobar (diffuse). Forced spirometry was indicated in 10 patients (43,5%), 7 women and 3 men, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is the main diagnosis. The association of Tetracycline with Metronidazole indicated in 9 patients (39,1 %) had positive results. The pathophysiology of this clinical entity is subject to constant updating. CONCLUSIONS: In chronic coughing patients, bronchiectasis must have diagnostic priority, it is an oíd pathology, but it is permanently current.
