Empyema is a complication of community-acquired pneumonia. We conducted a retrospective analysis of empyema patients discharged from 1996-2016, examining culture results according to timing of antibiotic administration. Blood culture decreased from 45% to 4% after antibiotics, and pleural fluid culture yield decreased from 67% to 30%. More than half of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus cases occurred from 2011-2016.

We report an unusual presentation of pulmonary embolism (PE) where a 58-year-old man first developed symptoms of community-acquired pneumonia. Despite antibiotic therapy, he remained unwell with rising inflammatory markers, general malaise and persistent cough. He developed stony dull percussion and absent breath sounds to his left mid to lower zones. Serial chest x-rays showed progression from lobar consolidation to a large loculated left-sided pleural collection. CT chest showed left-sided lung abscess, empyema and bronchopleural fistulation...

INTRODUCTION: Combined Intrapleural therapy with tissue plasminogen activator (tPA) and deoxyribonuclease (DNase) has been shown to reduce the need for surgical intervention for complicated pleural effusion/empyema (CPE/empyema). For patients in whom tPA/DNase is likely to fail, however, receipt of this therapy may simply delay the inevitable. The goal of this study was to identify risk factors for failure of combined intrapleural therapy. METHODS: We performed a retrospective chart review of patients who received intrapleural tPA/DNase for the treatment of CPE/empyema...

OBJECTIVES: Persistent air leak or bronchopleural fistula (BPF) is a challenging and frequently observed problem after pulmonary resection and may lead to prolonged chest tube therapy. One efficient nonsurgical approach to manage such a fistula is the application of intrabronchial valves. This may support earlier chest tube removal and hospital discharge. METHODS: Between 04/2015 and 03/2017, n = 8 patients (n = 4 female) with severe pleural empyema and necrotising lung tissue defects developed prolonged air leak and persistent BPF after surgery...

BACKGROUND: Transdiaphragmatic extension of pyogenic liver abscess is the rarest cause of pericarditis and pleural empyema. It is a rapidly progressive and highly lethal infection with mortality rates reaching 100% if left untreated. However, the transmission route, treatment methods and prognosis have not been well studied. CASE PRESENTATION: A 65-year-old male patient presented with a fever, dyspnea, and right upper quadrant abdominal pain. Computed tomography of the chest and abdomen showed huge liver abscess without full liquefaction in the left lobe, large amount of left pleural effusion, and mild pericardial effusion, and the patient was treated with parenteral antibiotics and pigtail insertion at the left pleura...

BACKGROUND: Perforation of the esophagus is the most severe complication of transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and can lead to mediastinitis, pleural empyema, or peritonitis. Currently, the majority of patients receive operative treatment with only 6% treated endoscopically. We report our experience with endoscopic and conservative approaches. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all patients treated for esophageal perforation and included all patients with perforation caused by TEE...

Yong Lv, Guohong Han, Daiming Fan
Hepatic hydrothorax (HH) is a pleural effusion that develops in a patient with cirrhosis and portal hypertension in the absence of cardiopulmonary disease. Although the development of HH remains incompletely understood, the most acceptable explanation is that the pleural effusion is a result of a direct passage of ascitic fluid into the pleural cavity through a defect in the diaphragm due to the raised abdominal pressure and the negative pressure within the pleural space. Patients with HH can be asymptomatic or present with pulmonary symptoms such as shortness of breath, cough, hypoxemia, or respiratory failure associated with large pleural effusions...

BACKGROUND: The role of induction therapy (IT) and its effects on morbidity and mortality of patients receiving tracheal sleeve pneumonectomy (TSP) are unclear. We evaluated early and long-term outcomes of patients who underwent TSP after IT. METHODS: From 1998 to 2015, 32 patients (26 men; median age, 63 years) underwent TSP. Twenty-two patients (69%) received IT (cisplatin based chemotherapy). TSPs were all right sided and included 3 completion pneumonectomies...

OBJECTIVES: Surgical interventional has been key in the treatment of tuberculosis (TB) for a long time. Its importance diminished after the emergence of chemotherapy. However, the spread of rapid multidrug-resistant (MDR) and extensively drug-resistant (XDR) TB has led us to return to surgery to treat TB. Today, every second patient in Russia with destructive TB has either MDR or XDR TB, which is the reason for the low efficacy of conservative treatment. In 2015, treatment with drugs resulted in clinical recovery in only 29...

BACKGROUND: Pleural empyema is an infectious disease of the chest cavity, with a high morbidity and mortality. According to the American Thoracic Society, pleural empyema gets graduated into three stages, with surgery being indicated in intermediate stage II and chronic stage III. Evidence for the feasibility of a minimally-invasive video-assisted thoracoscopic approach in stage III empyema for pulmonary decortication is still little. METHODS: Retrospective single-center analysis of patients conducted to surgery for chronic stage III pleural empyema from 05/2002 to 04/2014 either by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS, n = 110) or conventional open surgery by thoracotomy (n = 107)...

INTRODUCTION: Nowadays the level of early and late complications after the operations for esophageal corrosive strictures such as esophago-organ anastomotic leak, development of infections, pneumonia, pleural empyema, mediastinitis, peritonitis, postoperative corrosive stricture development etc. remains rather high. Besides, postoperative mortality rate is high as well - 3.5-30 %. For that reason, an experimental model of esophageal stricture was suggested and ultrastructural mucosal changes in the stricture itself were studied to elaborate the unified pathogenic approach in treatment of esophageal stricture and improvement of its results...
