Efficacy of the Additional Mechanical Pleurodesis for Surgical Management of Primary Spontaneous Pneumothorax

2014-07-24 14:18:51 | BioPortfolio

Summary

For the definite treatment of primary spontaneous pneumothorax(PSP), thoracoscopic bleb obliteration with pleural adhesive procedure is generally accepted as a standard. But additional pleurodesis is potentially useless procedure on the parietal pleura for treating visceral pleural disese. Furthermore, pleural symphysis could deteriorates normal pleural physiology and cause chronic pain. According to our previous study, stapling resection of the bulla without pleurodesis gave comparable result in recurrence comparing with articles with additional pleurodesis. The purpose of this study is to evaluate surgical outcome of thoracoscopic surgery with or without pleural abrasion and to know whether adhesive procedure is essential in the management of PSP.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An accumulation of air or gas in the pleural space, which may occur spontaneously or as a result of trauma or a pathological process, or be introduced deliberately ( = PNEUMOTHORAX, ARTIFICIAL). (Dorland, 27th ed)

Autosomal dominant neoplastic syndrome characterised by genodermatosis, lung cysts, spontaneous and recurrent PNEUMOTHORAX; and RENAL CANCER. It is associated with mutations in the folliculin protein gene (FLCN protein).

Surgical treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis whereby the lung is totally or partially, temporarily or permanently, immobilized. The procedure was based on the popular concept that collapsing the affected portion of a tuberculous lung allowed the infected area to rest and thereby recover. At the beginning of the 20th century artificially induced pneumothorax (PNEUMOTHORAX, ARTIFICIAL) was popular. Later a variety of other techniques was used to encourage collapse of the infected portion of the lung: unilateral phrenic nerve division, PNEUMONOLYSIS, pneumoperitoneum (PNEUMOPERITONEUM, ARTIFICIAL), and THORACOPLASTY. Collapse therapy has declined since the advent of antitubercular chemotherapy. (Stedman, 25th ed; from Sabiston Jr, Textbook of Surgery, 14th ed, p1733-4)

A spontaneous diminution or abatement of a disease over time, without formal treatment.

A circumstance where a substance or organism takes fire and burns without an exogenous source. Spontaneous human combustion differs from preternatural human combustibility in that in the latter, some spark or trivial flame sets the fire and the body tissues, which have a greatly enhanced inflammability, continue to undergo incineration without any external heat source or combustible materials. (Bergman NA. Spontaneous human combustion: its role in literature and science. Pharos 1988;Fall;51(4):18-21)
