Kunnen longen zich herstellen na jarenlang roken?

  • L.N.A. Willems

Samenvatting

Om deze vraag te beantwoorden is het eerst nodig te bespreken welke effecten sigarettenrook op de long heeft, vervolgens wat met die effecten gebeurt na het stoppen met roken dan wel hoe de toestand herstelt, en tot slot of en hoe herstel kan worden bevorderd. Sigarettenrook is direct betrokken bij de etiologie van COPD en longcarcinoom, van pneumothorax en van een paar zeldzamere ziektes zoals een rokersziekte in de longperiferie (respiratory bronchiolitis associated interstitial lung disease, RBILD).
