    Abstract Management of empyema with bronchopleural fistula remains a challenge.[] European journal of cardio-thoracic surgery : official journal of the European Association for Cardio-thoracic Surgery. 2002 Jan [PubMed][] Enterococcus casseliflavus was detected in cultures for bacteria of the effusion from the empyema space.[]

  • Empyema

    An empyema is a collection of pus within an anatomical cavity. Usually, the term refers to empyema thoracis which is the collection of pus in the pleural space.[] KEYWORDS: Campylobacter rectus; Garenoxacin; Sulbactam-ampicillin; Thoracic empyema[] The thoracic empyema may have developed via a pulmonary fistula in this case.[]

  • Thoracoplasty

    Immediate control of the empyema was obtained in 15 (88%) patients.[] OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effect and outcome of thoracoplasty in conjunction with pedicle screw instrumentation in the treatment of thoracic adolescent idiopathic scoliosis[] Little has changed in the 2000 years since the treatment of empyema was originally described by Hippocrates.[]

  • Sinusitis

    The location where subdural empyema may appear is a challenge in diagnosis and treatment.[] Proc Am Thorac Soc. 2011 Mar;8(1):132-40. doi: 10.1513/pats.201003-028RN. Review.[] […] of Allergy Asthma and Immunology , American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology , American College of Chest Physicians , American College of Physicians , American Thoracic[]

  • Hemothorax

    Abstract We describe the use of an electric trigger-controlled suction-lavage device for the evacuation of empyema or clotted hemothorax.[] Hemothorax is an unusual but well-described complication of ruptured thoracic aortic dissection.[] Three patients developed empyema, and 19 demonstrated retained blood; there was no difference between SEPS and control patients.[]

  • Parapneumonic Effusion

    SUMMARY: Increased understanding of the pathogenesis of empyema may ultimately yield novel therapeutic targets.[] K. pneumoniae was the most frequent cause of community-acquired thoracic empyema or complicated parapneumonic effusion.[] This differentiation is important because CPPE/empyema patients need thoracic drainage.[]

  • Lung Abscess

    […] with pleural empyema.[] […] every open and endoscopic surgical technique with expert commentary by the leaders in thoracic surgery from around the world.[] Instead the broad scope is to provide important up to date information and reference material relating to most of the thoracic surgical conditions seen in childhood.[]

  • Pneumonia

    KEYWORDS Pleural effusion - empyema - lung abscess - malignant pleural effusion - interventional radiology[] Thoracic CT scanner showed cavitary pneumonia. Broncho-alveolar lavage cultures found community-acquired Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-baumannii complex.[] To treat VAP empirically, the American Thoracic Society currently recommends antibiotic therapy based on the patients' risk of colonisation by an organism with multidrug resistance[]

  • Mediastinitis

    KEYWORDS: deep neck infection; empyema; mediastinitis; video-assisted thoracic surgery[] KEYWORDS: Cardiac surgery; General thoracic surgery; Guideline; Mediastinitis; Prevention; Treatment[] Approximately 5-10% of parapneumonic effusions will develop into empyema. Empyema is more common in men, with a male to female ratio of 2:1.[]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    Complications of a respiratory infection may include: Empyema.[] The abnormalities include elevated thoracic gas volume and airway resistance at 1 year of age, 1 5 airways obstruction in children 2 3 and lower forced expiratory volume over[] British Thoracic Society guidelines for the management of community acquired pneumonia in children: update 2011. Thorax . 2011;66(Suppl 2):ii1–ii23. 6.[]
