Pulmonology in IsraelPulmonology specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the lungs and airways. Inside pulmonology isolated phthisiology that studies tuberculosis and thoracic surgery, which deals with surgical treatment of diseases of the chest, respiratory, mediastinum.

Pulmonology in Israel cooperates with disciplines such as oncology . allergology . cardiology . otolaryngology , Traumatology, intensive care, rheumatology , Transplantation, critical care medicine, and others.

Branch pulmonology in Israeli clinics performed treatment:

  • nonspecific lung disease (bronchitis, pneumonia, tracheitis, bronchiectasis et al.);
  • allergies (asthma);
  • destructive changes (lung gangrene, abscesses);
  • pleural region (hydrothorax, pneumothorax) diseases;
  • chest injuries;
  • neoplastic lesions of the lungs , Mediastinum, pleura, bronchi;
  • emergency conditions that are accompanied by respiratory failure;
  • systemic nature of the disease with dissimination in lung tissue (fibrosing alveolitis, cystic fibrosis, sarcoidosis);
  • malformations of the tracheobronchial tree and so on.

Many diseases in pulmonology proceed very hard, leading to a serious deterioration in health, reduce the quality of life and shorten its duration. The growth of this type of disease affecting the deteriorating environment, smoking, harmful occupational factors, susceptibility to frequent colds, old age (after 60-70 years).

Private clinics and medical centers provide services to Israel's authoritative experts: pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, TB specialists, oncologists. Treatment of lung in Israel is carried out at a very high level and in most cases, to cope with the disease, or to achieve remission.

Diagnosis of lung disease in Israeldiagnosis of lung diseases

Development of pulmonology due, primarily, to the development of diagnostic methods. Pulmonary offices in Israel are equipped with the newest first-class equipment. Accurate diagnosis is performed for 1-2 days and complies with international standards.

  1. Laboratory diagnosis involves the study of biochemical, microscopic, bacteriological, morphological, cytological, PCR - materials. It carried out the study of acid-base and blood gas state; analyzed sputum microscopic composition, microflora, acid-fast mycobacteria, pleural effusion and biopsy of the lung, pleura, bronchi; performed bakissledovanie bronchi wash water. This type of diagnosis of lung disease in Israel is used for diagnosis and monitoring of the dynamics of treatment.
  2. Radiographic methods for diagnosing changes in the pleural cavity in the tracheobronchial tree, in the mediastinum, pulmonary tissues in the chest. This type of survey is divided into general (radiography, fluoroscopy, chest X-ray) and special (angiography, bronchography, bronchial arteriography) study.
  3. Tomographic diagnosis of lung disease in Israel: the X-ray longitudinal (linear), computer, magnetic resonance, positron emission tomography lung. It allows you to obtain images of the sagittal, frontal and axial sections of the study area; eliminates artifacts associated with pulsation, breathing, etc.; applying contrast enhancement and volume reconstruction based on the images received.
  4. Endoscopic examinations are widely recognized in the early diagnosis: widely used endoscopic examination of the pleura (plevroskopiya), bronchi (bronchoscopy), mediastinum (mediastinoscopy), lung (thoracoscopy, transbronchial lung biopsy). During these studies can be conducted fence material for laboratory research, medical procedures, minimally invasive intervention.
  5. Radioisotope techniques diagnosis of lung disease state tested in Israel regional ventilation (ventilation scintigraphy) and pulmonary capillary blood flow (perfusion scintigraphy). Evaluated distributed in the preset light radiopharmaceutical. With these methods, diagnose pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, atelectasis, obstructive pulmonary disease, pulmonary fibrosis and other local. These studies complement the X-ray information.
  6. A study of respiratory function in the diagnosis of lung diseases in Israel, involves a series of tests that reflect the functional state of the respiratory tract. Spirometry set tidal volumes, plethysmography and pneumotachograph explore the mechanics of breathing, peak flow estimates bronchial patency. This type of diagnosis helps to predict operational risks, to assess the functional state of the lungs, to observe the adequacy of the treatment of lung in Israel.
  7. Diagnostic manipulation - is the use of minimally invasive surgical methods of investigation, aimed at the fence of the tissue or cellular material for laboratory examination. These manipulations include pleural puncture (thoracentesis), needle biopsy of the pleura or lung, and so on. These diagnostic information to help clarify the nature of the defeat of the lung and pleura in the preoperative stage.

Treatment of lung in Israel

treatment light in IsraelTreating lung in Israel is carried out both using conservative methods, and operational (benign endoscopic and open cavity). Conservative treatment involves the use of drug therapy, physical therapy, climatotherapy, inhalation. Pulmonology in Israel executes full range of surgical operations on the diaphragm, chest wall, trachea and bronchi, lungs, mediastinum, pleura. Israeli doctors have returned to normal breathing and relieve seizures and exacerbations of the disease.

Endoscopic techniques in the treatment of lung Israel used for removal of foreign bodies, tumors of the trachea and bronchi to restore patency of the airway constriction when etc. Of great importance in this country purchased pulmonology minimally invasive thoracoscopic techniques that are used for cost-conserving surgery (removal of cysts and benign tumors) and anatomical resection operations (bilobektomii, pneumonectomy,lobectomy ).

Treatment of lung in Israel and airways involves the use of the following methods:

  • Photodynamic therapy is a relatively new, unique method of treatment based on the use of medication - photosensitizer (light-sensitive material) and low intensity laser radiation having a specific wavelength which corresponds to an absorption peak of a photosensitizer. It is held in the light of radical treatment programs in Israel (with an early form of cancer of the tracheobronchial tree, with multicentric central lung cancer), as well as palliative care programs (with unresectable tumors of the respiratory tract), it eliminates the effects of dysphagia, respiratory failure.
  • Laser therapy is a highly effective method of treatment and rehabilitation of patients with bronchial asthma, pulmonary tuberculosis, pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The impact is on the reflex-segmental areas of skin and points, in addition, intravenous and endobronchial. Correction is made basic syndrome, inflammatory changes and dissipate their residual effects.
  • Stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) is an area of ​​radiation therapy employing precision radiation. Extracranial stereotactic radiotherapy is indicated for the treatment of malignant and benign tumors of the lung medium and small size. This type of treatment is the lung in Israel using CyberKnife® system exposes the affected segments of higher doses of irradiation as compared with the classical radiotherapy. CyberKnife allows to remove various lung tumors: in an early stage and the primary and secondary, recurrent, peripheral or central forms. This is an alternative for patients who have contraindications to surgery. non-invasive method, in the process of irradiation does not interfere with normal breathing and is friendly to the neighboring areas of the body.

In Israel Pulmonology high development area received lung transplantation in the case of incurable acquired and congenital diseases. The main indicators are pulmonary hypertension, cystic fibrosis, emphysema. Conducted several types of transplantation: transplantation of the lung by-relative donor transplant of two lungs, transplant artificial lung, a lung transplant and heart.

The effectiveness of the treatment of lung in Israel is also linked to the country's unique climate and the Dead Sea , It allows you to quickly go through a rehabilitation course after primary therapy.

It is also the country's hospitals and clinics perform effective diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of diseases, including gum disease and tooth decay, mental diseases . urological diseases and many others.

Tlv.Hospital Coordination Center will assist in the organization of treatment of diseases of the lungs and airways in the best Israeli hospitals.
