Show results in: Deutsch

  • Hemothorax

    […] metastatic disease may be less likely to cause fibrothorax.[] (loculation occurs early but fibrothorax occurs in Empyema (occurs in 1-4% of cases): predisposed by shock/ gross contamintaion of pleural space/ associated abdominal injury[] Although there are no clear-cut predictors of fibrothorax in the setting of nontraumatic hemothorax, it has been our experience that slow diffuse oozing from pleural-based[]

  • Pleural Fibrosis

    The more extensive form is called fibrothorax. Medical dictionary. 2011.[] Fibrothorax is defined as fibrosis within the pleural space and is sometimes referred to as pleural peel .[] Fibrothorax is defined as fibrosis within the pleural space and is sometimes referred to as pleural peel.[]

  • Empyema

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe the characteristics of lung cancers in patients with tuberculous fibrothorax or empyema.[] […] evacuation of the infected fluid along with appropriate antibiotics is the mainstay of treatment and will not only improve survival but also hopefully prevent the formation of a fibrothorax[] Fibrothorax with restriction and encasement of the lung in thickened, often calcified pleura, is a late complication in tuberculous empyema.[]

  • Pleural Calcification

    In patients with calcified fibrothorax, the calcified parietal pleura is separated from the inner thoracic wall by fat whether an effusion is present or not.[] Pleural calcifications usually result from fibrothorax, secondary to hemothorax, thoracic empyema, tuberculous pleural effusion, or even exposure to asbestos fibers.[] An organizing fibrothorax is definitely less diagnostic because it usually consists of chronic inflammatory cells and fibrosis.[]
