Sample text

The thickened visceral pleura (peel) is incised and a blunt dissection is made by which the peel can be removed from the lung. Gentle ventilation and partial expansion of the lung facilitate this dissection. The process continues until there is a minimal amount of pleural debris and the lung fully reexpands to fill the entire pleural space. However, there are thoracic surgeons who find VATS a tedious operation and find a muscle-sparing thoracotomy to be an efficient way to complete the decortication.

The typical changes with diffusely thickened pleura, multiple adhesions, and sometimes formation of encapsulating membranes with fluid loculations, were present in 76 % of cases. By comparison, the pathognomonic picture of so-called “sagolike” pleuritis with miliary tuberculous granulomas and without fibrin layers was seen in only 24 % of cases. 0005). 005).

2008). Less than 10% of pleural fluids are smear-positive and culture is positive in only approximately 30% (20–50 %) of cases. The diagnostic yield of closed needle pleural biopsies is much better than in malignant pleural effusions due to the usually more disseminated involvement of the whole pleural surface. In a review of the literature on 1225 cases, the yield averaged 69 % with a range of 28–88 %, including results for multiple biopsies and TB cultures (Loddenkemper et al. 1983b). 2 % with the Tru-Cut needles (Koegelenberg et al.
