doxycycline control of malignant pleural effusions.
To reiterate, the intrapleural
space is normally a potential space.
catheter in the management of postoperative pain.
This creates the potential for large negative intrapleural
pressures during pressurization and reflux of air or fluid into the thoracic cavity during chamber depressurization.
To study efficacy of intrapleural
streptokinase in management of complicated parapneumonic effusion and empyema.
Controlled trial of intrapleural
streptokinase for pleural infection.
This study and literature data confirmed that existence of intrapleural
septa may predict a more complicated clinical course [6, 8-10, 15-20].
AHR was expressed as Penh, an indirect measurement that is correlated with airway resistance, impedance, and intrapleural
t-PA and DNase have been shown to improve the drainage, length of stay, and the frequency of surgical intervention in empyema.
The pathogenesis of NPPE is mainly attributed to the generation of marked negative intrapleural
pressure [2, 5, 6].
Due to bleeding risk, decortication was deferred and the patient was instead treated with intrapleural
tPA and dornase alpha.
Thoracic ultrasonography revealed an intrapleural
cyst with a duplication of its wall suggesting a proliferative membrane without associated pleurisy (Figure 2).
