Abstract

A 52-year-old male was admitted to our hospital with dyspnea. Chest X-ray and computed tomography confirmed the presence of a giant bulla on the upper lobe of the right lungs, and the presence of bullas on the middle and lower lobe of the right lungs. A video-assisted thoracic surgery with lobectomy on the right upper lobe and with bulla suture ligation on the middle and lower lobe of the right lungs was performed. No serious complications occurred in the postoperative course, as the patient showed good lung re-expansion and no prolonged air leak.
