Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and comorbidities.
Results of epidemiological studies have shown that chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is frequently associated with comorbidities, the most serious and prevalent being cardiovascular disease, lung cancer, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, and

Systemic and Pulmonary Vascular Remodelling in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is associated with subclinical systemic atherosclerosis and pulmonary vascular remodelling characterized by intimal hyperplasia and luminal narrowing. We aimed to determine differences in the intimal thick

Assessment of pulmonary rehabilitation efficacy in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients using the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease assessment test.
We evaluated the relationship between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) assessment test (CAT) and improvements after pulmonary rehabilitation (PR) and PR efficiency in COPD patients.

Extracellular Vesicles in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is characterized by the progression of irreversible airflow limitation and is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Although several crucial mechanisms of COPD pathogenesis have been studie

Underrecognized comorbidities of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
COPD is associated with different comorbid diseases, and their frequency increases with age. Comorbidities severely impact costs of health care, intensity of symptoms, quality of life and, most importantly, may contribute to life span shortening. Som

Bronchoscopic interventions for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
Over the past decade, several non-surgical and minimally invasive bronchoscopic lung volume reduction (BLVR) techniques have been developed to treat patients with severe chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). BLVR can be significantly efficaci
