Abstract

Bilateral volume reduction surgery has been designed to reduce total thoracic volume and improve chest wall mechanics in patients with severe emphysema who, up to now, had very limited viable surgical options. This procedure has been performed in more than 120 such patients at our institution. We present the anesthetic considerations and our experience from their management.
