This book provides a discussion of collapse therapy of pulmonary tuberculosis, with special reference to artificial pneumothorax. The author believes that the old practice of attempting artificial pneumothorax in every case before considering surgery, particularly thoracoplasty, should be abandoned and that persons whose disease is so extensive as to require permanent collapse, those . Fowler has truly said, " artificial pneumothorax is the only advance in the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis since the introduction of sanatorium treatment as carried out at Nordach," yet the advance, great as it is-, is only applicable in something like 5 per cent, of cases. Ninety five per cent, of sufferers from pulmonary tuberculosis. Artificial pneumothorax in the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis: results obtained by twenty-four American observers. JAMA ;–6. Surgery of the lungs ;31; ; 16; It has largely been reported from Japan but a few cases have been reported from the west. ,– Patients give a long history of chronic pleuritis, which has generally been consequent upon repeated artificial pneumothoraces for pulmonary tuberculosis. Rarer causes of the pleuritis include asbestos. In many cases there is evidence.
therapy and the variable treatment options, and elaborated on re-expansion pulmonary edema as a potentially serious complication of pleural drainage. Finally, air travel as a predisposing factor. Streptomycin was given before or during pneumothorax treatment or both in 90 ( per cent.) of the patients. The drug was given, in most cases, intramuscularly for days' continuous therapy. The results of the pneumothorax treatment were classified under the headings successful, failure, or intermediate. These 3 categories are defined. Factors affecting the result of artificial pneumothorax. The main reason for the ineffectiveness of artificial pneumothorax is pleural adhesions and adhesions that impede the complete collapse of the affected areas of the lung and the healing of caverns. Spikes are formed in the majority (up to 80%) of patients with pulmonary tuberculosis. Artificial pneumothorax is used to-day on a scale undreamt of in , and there is a marked tendency to resort to this method of treatment at an early stage of the disease. A protean disease-and pulmonary tuberculosis is the very type of such a disease-requires diverse methods of treatment, according to its severity and stage of evolution.
