RUESCAS ESCOLANO, E. et al. Young´s sindrome in the adult age: home treatment with a mechanical device of intrapulmonary percusive ventilation. An. Med. Interna (Madrid) [online]. 2007, vol.24, n.9, pp.435-438. ISSN 0212-7199.
We studied a man with bronchiectasis, chronic sinopulmonary infections and obstructive azoospermia daignosed of Young's syndrome in the adult age. The patient was treated at home by a mechanical system of respiratory care based in intrapulmonary percussive ventilation (Percussionaire®) reaching a significant clinical and functional improvement. Our case enhanced the importance to make a proper history of fertility in patients with bronchiectasis in order to establish the diagnostic. We review different methods of respiratory mechanical asistance in patients with bronchiectasis.
