The importance of thoracostomy in the treatment of pleural empyema with bronchial fistulas in pulmonary tuberculosis patients



The importance of thoracostomy in the treatment of pleural empyema with bronchial fistulas in pulmonary tuberculosis patients



Problemy Tuberkuleza 0(11-12): 35-37



In contrast to the nonspecific pleural empyemas, which are managed effectively by closed methods of debridement, management of patients with tuberculous pleural empyema and bronchial fistulas requires early application of thoracostoma, which allows cavity debridement, long-term antituberculous chemotherapy and preparation to radical surgery. This was confirmed by the comparative analysis of the results of radical operations after closed and open methods of management of empyema cavity in 139 patients. The site of thoracostoma application is determined by the location and size of an abscess and the forthcoming radical operation. Long-action bandages with chlorhexidine bigluconate and ultraviolet radiation are prescribed for the debridement of open pleural empyemas.
