OBJECTIVES: Intrathoracic fistulae are among the potential sequelae of radiation therapy, empyema and abscess clearance and surgical tumour resections. Interdisciplinary plastic-reconstructive flap surgery is a helpful tool for the successful treatment of intrathoracic fistulae. METHODS: From February 2006 to April 2016, 13 patients (3 females and 10 males) underwent flap surgery for bronchial (n = 5), tracheal (n = 2), oesophageal (n = 2), post-pneumonectomy bronchopleural fistula (n = 2), tracheo-oesophageal (n = 1), gastrobronchial (n = 1) and oesophagobronchial (n = 1) fistulae...

A bronchopleural fistula (BPF) is a communication between the pleural space and the bronchial tree. BPFs are challenging to diagnose and are associated with a high morbidity and mortality. Sequential balloon occlusion is commonly used for localization of a BPF. We describe our experience with 4 cases of successful localization of the BPF by instillation of methylene blue into the pleural space through a pigtail catheter, with simultaneous bronchoscopic visualization of dye in the tracheobronchial tree. Two patients were treated with endobronchial valves and 3 had a surgical thoracic muscle flap placed...

Percutaneous tumor ablations are rather safe and effective treatments in selected patients for non-operable non-small cell lung carcinomas or lung metastases. However, there are major complications such as bronchopleural or bronchocutaneous fistula, which it is important to know in order to manage them safely. We describe in this report a case of bronchocutaneous fistula without pneumothorax following a microwave ablation of a recurrent pulmonary metastasis and its management.

The current standard-of-care treatment for patients with limited-stage small-cell lung cancer (SCLC) is concurrent chemoradiotherapy for local and systemic control. However, standard-of-care treatment strategies have not been established for those with limited-stage SCLC who have a history of thoracic radiotherapy due to concerns with complications associated with radiation overdose. A 37-year-old male developed an aspergilloma in the postoperative left thoracic space after he was treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy for mediastinal type lung adenocarcionoma and subsequent left upper lobectomy for heterochronous dual adenocarcinoma...

A 77-year-old man with clinical stage II squamous cell carcinoma underwent right intrapericardial pneumonectomy. After an initially uneventful course he was readmitted with right-sided empyema, bronchopleural fistula, and pulmonary embolus. This was managed with initial resuscitation and anticoagulant agents, followed by debridement and closure of the fistula with biologic mesh reinforced with a pedicled diaphragm muscle flap.

Postoperative bronchopleural fistula( BPF) is a life-threatening complication requiring immediate and proper treatments. Now days, the main method for closure of the bronchial stump after lung resection is mechanical stapling because of prevailing of commonly performed video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. The frequencies of BPF seem to be decreased compared with the age of manual sutures under open thoracotomy, probably due to improvement of the stapling instruments. However, if once BPF occurs, the severity of the disease does not differ between these 2 closing methods...

Postoperative wound infection and empyema after pulmonary surgery is considered surgical site infection. Postoperative empyema (PE) is a rare but potentially fatal complication of pulmonary resections and proper management is essential. Appropriate antibiotics and surgical treatment is necessary to cure the PE. PE is often associated with bronchopleural fistula, which makes the management of PE difficult. The treatment of empyema has the basic way of thinking, but there are various cures, closed tube thoracostomy, video-assisted thoracoscopy, emergency open window thoracostomy, and Endoscopic conservative treatment may necessary...

BACKGROUND: In children, necrotizing pneumonia (NP) is an uncommon, severe complication of pneumonia. It is characterized by destruction of the underlying lung parenchyma resulting in multiple small, thin-walled cavities and is often accompanied by empyema and bronchopleural fistulae. REVIEW: NP in children was first reported in children in 1994, and since then there has been a gradual increase in cases, which is partially explained by greater physician awareness and use of contrast computed tomography (CT) scans, and by temporal changes in circulating respiratory pathogens and antibiotic prescribing...

BACKGROUND: Massive hemoptysis is a common encounter in respiratory medicine. Bronchoscopy plays an important role in localizing the origin of bleeding, as well as endoscopic treatment of centrally located lesions. Endobronchial embolization is a novel technique enabling the management of hemoptysis arising even from peripheral lesions, via occlusion of the culprit bronchus, thereby securing the airway. Endobronchial Watanabe Spigot had been advocate in the treatment of bronchopleural fistula and the use of this novel technique had since then been expanded into the management of massive hemoptysis...

Hydrocarbon aspiration (HA) can cause significant lung disease by inducing an inflammatory response, hemorrhagic exudative alveolitis, and loss of surfactant function. The most serious side effect of HA is aspiration pneumonia. Pneumothorax, pneumatocele, acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), pulmonary abscess, bronchopleural fistula, bilateral hemorrhagic pleural effusion and pyopneumothorax were previously reported. Hereby we report a patient hospitalized due to aspiration pneumonia who developed pleurisy and pneumothorax after drinking paint thinner...

Surgical techniques for treatment of malignant pleural mesothelioma (MPM) have improved over the decades. The main surgical principle was accepted as macroscopic complete resection. This principle was achieved with extrapleural pneumonectomy (EPP) and extended pleurectomy/decortication (P/D). Mortality and morbidity are higher following EPP with supraventricular arrhythmias, pulmonary embolism, bronchopleural fistula and pulmonary failure being the most common, while prolonged air leak is frequent following P/D...
