    Effect of Lung Volume Reduction Surgery on Diaphragm Strength.


    Am. J Respir. Crit Care Med 157: 1578-1585

        

    Lung
    volume reduction surgery significantly enhances
    diaphragmatic strength that is associated with a
    decrease in lung volumes and an improved exercise
    performance – leading to prolonged improved functional
    status of patients undergoing procedure.


        

    In
    the group of patients who underwent only pulmonary
    rehabilitation, there was no change in the measurement
    of diaphragmatic strength.
