Post-operative data included post-operative complications such as wound infection, respiratory tract infection, need of mechanical ventilation and tube thoracostomy
Efficacy and safety of iodopovidone pleurodesis through tube thoracostomy
. Respirology 2006; 11: 105-8.
, is a commonly used invasive procedure that is designed for evacuation of air or fluid from the pleural space to restore homeostasis of intrathoracic pressure, maintain intrathoracic volume for lung expansion, and monitor possible intrathoracic bleeding.,,, Nevertheless, there are several potentially significant complications inherent in CTI.
Bilateral blind thoracostomy
with fingered dissection was once again unsuccessful because the ribs were impossible to reach.
placement was successfully achieved from the right side, and neck exploration was performed for tracheostomy in operating theater; a total tracheal rupture was observed between the level of 2 and 3 cricoid cartilage and the procedure was terminated after placing a tracheostomy cannula to the distal segment of trachea to wait for considering reconstruction following clinical progression and hemodynamic stabilization of the patient.
tube was affixed to right hemithorax of the case, 450 mL purulent, exudative fluid was drained, in the yellow-purulent material; leukocyte count 21,500/[mm.sup.3] (90% polymorphonuclear leukocyte), glucose 6 mg/dL, protein 3220 mg/dL and pH was determined as 7.11.
ICFs included tube thoracostomy
, endotracheal intubation, blood products transfusion, cardioversion and defibrillation, intramuscular injection, intravenous injection, closed reduction of fractures and dislocations, small surgical interventions, lumbar puncture, paracentesis, peritoneal lavage, fibrinolysis, central venous catheterization, sedation, thoracentesis, and tracheostomy procedures.
was applied after 6 months from the first operation for those who did not have an operation.
During pleural decompression by tube thoracostomy
as a part of resuscitation, one needs to take special care to avoid injury to the thoracoabdominal organ.
(NT) is a life-saving procedure intended to evacuate tension pneumothorax (TPX) and stabilize the patient until a tube thoracostomy
can be inserted (3).
The major concern in TL supracostal PCNL is increased thoracic complications, such as pleural effusion, need for thoracostomy
and endotracheal intubation with mechanical ventilation, but the limitedly literature available has not shown any major difference between two approaches in terms of pulmonary complications (TL 9.3% vs.
