Diagnosing and Treating Numerous Lung Infections

Bronchiectasis Treatments at Texas Lung Care

If you are experiencing frequent chest infections, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue and/or mucus production then you may have bronchiectasis. The first step is to receive a correct diagnosis from our team at Texas Lung Care, which we can achieve using some of the leading technology in the field of pulmonary medicine.

Bronchoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that can be extremely helpful for diagnosing and managing bronchiectasis. During this  procedure, a thin tube is passed down the patients' airway to their lungs, providing doctors with images of the lungs through which they can assess the presence and severity of bronchiectasis. Bronchoscopy is able to take high quality videos and images that allow more detailed examination of the patient's airways.  The procedure can be done in an outpatient setting. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the most common symptoms of bronchiectasis?

Bronchiectasis can cause irreversible damage to the airways, leading to difficulty with breathing, coughing up large amounts of mucus, and recurrent infections. Those affected by the condition may experience an increased risk of chest infections and pneumonia, as well as fatigue, weight loss, and problems sleeping. Bronchiectasis can also cause complications such as swelling in the arms or legs and chest wall deformities. 

Are there different types of bronchiectasis?

Yes, there are different types of bronchiectasis. The most common are cystic fibrosis-related bronchiectasis and non-cystic fibrosis-related bronchiectasis. 

Cystic fibrosis-related bronchiectasis is caused by a defect in the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator protein while non-cystic fibrosis related bronchiectasis is caused by various other conditions such as bacterial or viral infection, genetic disorders, or asthma. 

Generally speaking, both types of bronchiectasis can be treated with medications, airway clearance devices and/or lifestyle changes.
