Abstract

Background: Surgical treatment of bronchiectasis is associated with acceptable mortality and morbidity rates. To date, few reports on the prediction of postoperative morbidity using some preoperative measures have been presented. We present our results regarding the influence of some specific factors on postoperative morbidity on young adult patients who were treated surgically for bronchiectasis.
