805 Possible Causes for Empyemas, Thoracic

Did you mean: empyema, Thoracic

  • Bronchopleural Fistula

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

  • 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.[symptoma.com] KEYWORDS: Campylobacter rectus; Garenoxacin; Sulbactam-ampicillin; Thoracic empyema[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The thoracic empyema may have developed via a pulmonary fistula in this case.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thoracoplasty

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

  • Sinusitis

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

  • Hemothorax

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

  • Parapneumonic Effusion

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

  • Lung Abscess

    […] with pleural empyema.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] every open and endoscopic surgical technique with expert commentary by the leaders in thoracic surgery from around the world.[books.google.de] 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.[books.google.de]

  • Pneumonia

    KEYWORDS Pleural effusion - empyema - lung abscess - malignant pleural effusion - interventional radiology[doi.org] Thoracic CT scanner showed cavitary pneumonia. Broncho-alveolar lavage cultures found community-acquired Acinetobacter calcoaceticus-baumannii complex.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Mediastinitis

    KEYWORDS: deep neck infection; empyema; mediastinitis; video-assisted thoracic surgery[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] KEYWORDS: Cardiac surgery; General thoracic surgery; Guideline; Mediastinitis; Prevention; Treatment[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 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.[clinicaladvisor.com]

  • Viral Lower Respiratory Infection

    Complications of a respiratory infection may include: Empyema.[rileychildrens.org] 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[thorax.bmj.com] British Thoracic Society guidelines for the management of community acquired pneumonia in children: update 2011. Thorax . 2011;66(Suppl 2):ii1–ii23. 6.[dovepress.com]
