Bullectomy is a surgical procedure performed on COPD patients to remove a giant bulla from the lungs.
Bulla is a thin-walled air space in the lining of the lungs. Bulla may get enlarged due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD), compressing surrounding healthy lung tissue. Giant bulla also exerts pressure on the diaphram and affects its contractibility. This reduces blood flow and oxygen to the lungs, thereby causing breathlessness. Once the giant bulla is removed, the lungs can expand and contract normally, and breathing becomes easier.
