Lung Collapse Treatments and Surgery

There are treatments for reinflating lungs and treatments for stopping lungs from collapsing again. Find out more about the different treatments below.

Most treatments for lung collapses have not been developed for people with BHD. They are designed to treat any type of collapsed lung.

It is important that your doctor knows that you have BHD, and it is possible that you may develop collapsed lungs in the future. This may change the course of treatment they suggest. Additionally, you should tell your doctor if you have already had surgery on your lungs, as this could also affect the best course of treatment for you.
