SESSION TITLE: COPD

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster Discussion

PRESENTED ON: Monday, October 24, 2016 at 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM

PURPOSE: A recent analysis (Lonni S et al. Ann Am Thorac Soc 2015) of 1258 patients with bronchiectasis showed that the 15% had a causal relationship with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The aim of our study was to investigate the prevalence of bronchiectasis in a cohort of stable COPD patients, its relationship with COPD severity, with the frequent exacerbator phenotype and with the incidence of pneumonia as an adverse event of treatment with combination of long-acting adrenergics and inhaled steroids (LABA/ICS).
