cpap pleurodesis

So-Hyun Nam, Kyoung-Ah Kwon
BACKGROUND: Lymphatic malformations are histologically benign vascular structures that vary in anatomic lesion and size. Extensive head and neck lymphatic malformations may be life-threatening. In the present study, we described three difficult-to-treat infants with giant cervico-mediastinal lymphatic malformations accompanied by severe respiratory distress. CASE PRESENTATIONS: Case 1.

Recently, various video-assisted thoracoscopic surgical techniques have been reported with occasional success in treating hepatic hydrothorax (HH). In 2 patients with refractory HH, we applied a combination of four therapeutic modalities as a single procedure named as a "four-step approach": (1) pneumoperitoneum for localization of diaphragmatic defects, (2) thoracoscopic pleurodesis, (3) postoperative continuous positive airway pressure, and (4) drainage of ascites for abdominal decompression. The treatment was successful in both patients, without recurrence during the follow-up period of 24 and 3 months, respectively...

Hepatic hydrothorax is often resistant to various treatments. A failure in the treatment for hepatic hydrothorax may be associated with poor prognosis. We report two cases of intractable hepatic hydrothorax successfully treated by combining chemical pleurodesis using OK-432 with nasal continuous positive airway pressure. Combination therapy may provide a minimally invasive and effective treatment for intractable hepatic hydrothorax.
