Therapies and Procedures

1. Thoracostomy
2. Debridement
10/01/2012 - "Computed tomography on the 27th postoperative day revealed mediastinitis and right hemothorax; open debridement and evacuation were performed. "
05/01/1991 - "Enzymatic debridement of the pleural cavity for retained hemothorax or empyema is a frequently overlooked option. "
09/01/1998 - "We conclude that early OVT in the military field hospital for continued bleeding, clotted hemothorax, and continued major air leakage has several advantages in military patients with PFAWT: early definition and management of organ injury; identification and control of bleeding in most instances; earlier and more accurate assessment for thoracotomy; vigorous lavage and removal of projectiles such as bone fragments and evacuation of clotted hemothorax; early debridement with suture closure of the thoracic wall canal; and minimal postoperative pain with dramatically reduced suppurative sequelae and bronchopleural fistulae."
06/01/2002 - "Operative procedures included fibrinopurulent empyema with debridement and decortication in 15 children, biopsy and(or) resection of mediastinal tumor in 11, bullectomy and cystectomy of the lung in 6, lobectomy with huge cyst of the lung or sequestration in 5, clearance of hemothorax in 2, and exploration, and repair of diaphragmatic hernia in 2. RESULTS The mean operative time was 74 minutes (range 30 to 220 minutes). "
02/01/2008 - "The thoracoscopic approach was used for decortication and debridement for empyema in 79 patients, wedge resection for lung lesions in 37, exposure for correction of scoliosis in 26, excision or biopsy of an extrapulmonary mass in 26, operation for spontaneous pneumothorax in 25, lung biopsy for a diffuse parenchymal process in 15, lobectomy in 9, repair of esophageal atresia with a tracheoesophageal fistula (EA-TEF) in 8, clearance of the pleural space for hemothorax or effusion in 3, diagnosis for trauma in 1, and repair of bronchopleural fistula in 1. Conversion was required in 3 patients, all of whom were undergoing a lobectomy. "
