The majority of cases can be classified as primary SP, ocurring in the young without associated pulmonary or general disease. Treatment regimens are identical to those administered for pulmonary TB.

Initial pleural drainage may have a role in symptom relief and in hastening the resolution of the effusion. Surgical intervention may be required in loculated effusions and empyemas.

A systematic predetermined form, including 60 items regarding the above-men-tioned features, was completed for 5, patients. Tuberculous lesions in the lung that require surgical treatment are in many cases associated with pleural and vascular adhesions, and treatment has traditionally been with open thoracotomy (1,4).

With advances in medical technology and accumulated experience with VATS, studies have reported that VATS can be safe and effective for the management of pulmonary TB that requires surgery (13 - 16). The early period for the surgical treatment of TB is reflected in the three decades of the nineteenth century, when collapse therapy was performed by open surgical pneumothorax with a high rate of asphyxia–associated death.

ABSTRACT. Mycobacterium tuberculosis (TB) is one of the main etiologies of lymphocytic pleurisy. Tuberculous pleural effusion (TPE) occurs in approximately 5% of patients with a pulmonary.

The operation of decortication in pulmonary tuberculosis is a valuable procedure. 2) It is a dangerous operation in the presence of tuberculous empyema, particularly mixed infections, wherein the offending tuberculosis organisms are streptomycin resistant.

3) Pulmonary decortication can result in valuable restoration of pulmonary function. Various surgical procedures have been developed in an attempt to alleviate the significant problems caused by chronic pleural empyema. The present study evaluates our year experience of employing a number of therapeutic approaches for chronic empyema.

If the air-containing cavities are multiple and involve both lungs or are a part of a generalized pulmonary emphysema, little can be done for the relief of the patient. Small cysts not causing symptoms do not necessarily require any treatment. Lethality in % occurred because of progress of bronchial fistula, pleural empyema and pulmonary tuberculosis.

Conclusion: Tuberculosis in residual pleural cavity after segmental pulmonary resections is a heavy pulmonary and pleural pathology characterized by chronic course. Repeated operations – pulmonectomy and thoracoplasty with myoplasty of the residual cavity – are highly.

Thoracic surgery began when the specialty was “chest” surgery for treating tuberculosis. Our hospital was established as a Sanatorium owned by the Japan Anti-Tuberculosis Association.

The Section of Chest Surgery began to operate on patients with pulmonary tuberculosis in At first, most patients underwent thoracoplasty. Incomplete reexpansions after lung resections are frequent and responsible for severe complications following surgery for chronic pulmonary aspergillosis.

Pleural space problems can manifest as prolonged air leaks, residual pleural pocket, and Aspergillus empyema.

Before introduction of the latissimus dorsi muscle flap, 2 patients developed prolonged air leaks, which progressed into. PAL is a newly described entity, which develops several decades after artificial pneumothorax treatment for pulmonary and pleural tuberculosis or chronic tuberculous pleural effusion.

It is a high-grade NHL occurring in 2% of patients with long-standing tuberculous pleuritis. This handy, accessible single volume presents useful clinical information to expose the pathophysiology underlying major pulmonary diseases, and traces the steps of treatment, fro.

Surgical resection was indicated for the diagnosis of unknown pulmonary nodular lesion as well as improving the treatment effects for subsequent anti-TB chemotherapies.

VATS procedures with or without the use of utility minithoracotomy incisions were performed, which we use routinely for limited resections for pulmonary lesions except for ones with dense pleural adhesions. Extrapulmonary involvement can occur in isolation or along with a pulmonary focus as in the case of patients with disseminated tuberculosis (TB).

Some authors defend surgical treatment in all cases, even when asymptomatic, due to the risk of hemoptysis []. In the complex form, surgical intervention must be considered as a last resort. In the simple form, surgery is relatively benign and prevents disease progression.

Pleural aspergillosis can occur, usually following the surgical removal of a cavity either in the short or medium term. Modern thoracic surgery can now offer management of tuberculosis and its complications in selected patients with greater efficacy and less morbidity than ever before.

Significantly, newer minimally invasive thoracic surgical approaches potentially lower thresholds for surgical candidacy, allowing more tuberculosis patients to receive operative treatment. This book provides a guide to the anatomy and the surgical techniques required in thoracic and cardiothoracic surgery.

It discusses the advantages and disadvantages of certain surgical procedures in relation to the lymphatic system, thyroid gland, chest wall and parathyroid glands, as well as pulmonary .pain, dyspnoea etc. Surgical emphysema in a case of pulmonary tuberculosis may be present because of associated secondary spontaneous pneumothorax or may be iatrogenic following chest tube insertion for pleural pathology.

Surgical emphysema in a case of pulmonary tuberculosis in the absence of these conditions is not yet known.Thoracoscopy first emerged as a diagnostic tool in the early 20th century when therapeutic pneumothorax became the surgical treatment of choice for tuberculosis.

InHans Christian Jacobaeus performed the first thoracoscopic intrapleural pneumolysis for collapse therapy in the treatment of tuberculosis. 1 – 3 He used a rigid cystoscope.
