Pleuroscopy For Disease





Category: BENIGN GROWTHS IN THE LARYNX
Source: A Manual Of Peroral Endoscopy And Laryngeal Surgery

Most pleural diseases require a large
external opening for drainage, and even here the pleuroscope may be of
some use in exploring the cavities. Usually there are many adhesions
and careful ray study may reveal one or more the breaking up of which
will improve drainage to such an extent as to cure an empyema of long
standing. Repeated severing of adhesions, aspiration and sometimes
incision of the thickened visceral pleura may be necessary. The author
is so strongly imbued with the idea that local examination under full
illumination has so revolutionized the surgery of every region of the
body to which it has been applied, that every accessible region should
be thus studied. The pleural cavity is quite accessible with or
without rib-resection, and there is practically no risk in careful
pleuroscopy.
