Patient Testimonial for Lung Transplantation for Pulmonary Alveolar Microlithiasis

Testimonial by Mr. G. Venkateshwar Rao

Treatment for: Lung Transplantation for Pulmonary Alveolar Microlithiasis
Treated by: Dr. Jnanesh Thacker
Speciality:
Patient location: Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh

Pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis is a genetic disorder in which tiny calcium phosphate fragments (microliths) gradually accumulate in the alveoli of the lungs, causing widespread damage to the alveoli and surrounding lung tissue (interstitial lung disease). The most typical symptoms are a persistent dry cough, fatigue, dyspnea, and chest pain, though symptoms can differ from person to person.

People who have pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis may also develop calcium phosphate deposits in other organs and tissues of the body. Although the disease’s progression can vary, many cases gradually advance to lung fibrosis and respiratory failure.

Lung transplantation is the only effective treatment for pulmonary alveolar microlithiasis. It is a surgical procedure in which the diseased lung is replaced with a healthy lung, typically from a deceased donor.

Mr. G. Venkateshwar Rao from Kakinada, Andhra Pradesh, successfully underwent Lung Transplantation for Pulmonary Alveolar Microlithiasis at Yashoda Hospitals, Hyderabad, under the supervision of Dr. Jnanesh Thacker, Senior Consultant Cardiothoracic Surgeon, Surgical Director-Lung, Heart, Heart-Lung Transplantation and Mechanical Circulatory Support.
