One case of CLE was misdiagnosed as pneumothorax and tube thoracostomy
tubes: A comprehensive review of complications and related topics.
tube placement was performed from second intercostal space because air leakage and expansion deficit have become evident at the right side in the early postoperative period.
However, tube thoracostomy
should be the first treatment in parapneumonic empyema of childhood despite everything because it has been determined that success rate was at 80-90% with only tube thoracostomy
Informed consent forms were used for emergency tube thoracostomy
, endotracheal intubation, blood products transfusion, cardioversion and defibrillation, intramuscular injection, intravenous injection, closed reduction of fractures and dislocations, small surgical interventions, lumbar puncture, paracentesis, peritoneal lavage, fibrinolysis, central venous catheterization, sedation, thoracentesis, and tracheostomy.
In one patient, tube thoracostomy
was performed for denying reoperation.
was removed on October 21, 2016 the clinical course continued uneventfully and management continued unchanged.
Complications of needle thoracostomy
: A comprehensive clinical review.
Patients, who demonstrated respiratory distress clinically and with radiological evidence of fluid, underwent thoracostomy
. Few patients, who did not resolve after thoracostomy
, needed endotracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation.
is done frequently in cases of chest trauma, pneumothorax, and hydrothorax or after cardiothoracic surgeries to drain the collected fluid, blood, or air.
due to trauma may be regarded differently by general surgeons than by thoracic surgeons.
All patients were initially managed with tube thoracostomy
and emergency thoracotomy was done in 405 (3.96%) firearm injury cases, 172 (31.32%) in bomb blast injuries and 16 (22.22%) in drone attack injuries.
