The American Association for Thoracic Surgery has released new guidelines for managing empyema. Among the recommendations, published in the Journal of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery: When pneumonia doesn't respond to antibiotics, clinicians should investigate whether the patient has pleural effusion.

DIAGNOSIS OF EMPYEMA. Empyema thoracis has been traditionally categorized based on three clinical phases: exudative, fibrinopurulent and organizing.[1–3] The American College of Chest Physicians (ACCP) recently published an evidence-based guideline that incorporates three variables (pleural space anatomy, pleural fluid bacteriology and pleural fluid chemistry) to risk-stratify.

Pleural empyema is the accumulation of pus within the pleural space. Empyema may be acute or chronic and may be localized or diffuse.

The development of empyema has been described as triphasic.1 Empyema begins with an exudate as the pleura secretes protein-rich fluid in response to contamination. During this phase, the lung remains mobile within the fluid. The magnitude of Hippocrates's contribution to the understanding of empyema is underscored by the fact that few true advances were made in either the diagnosis or treatment of this entity for the next 2 millennia [15, 16].

Roe, in Britain, and Stokes, an Irish physician, first advocated repeated aspirations of empyema collections in for an essay entitled ”Some Fundamental Considerations in the Treatment of Empyema Thoracis.” This work was published in a small volume of pages by The C.V.

different treatment modalities in pediatric patients. It must be stressed that childhood empyema differs from adult empyema in terms of causative pathogens, patient charac-teristics, and outcome. Epidemiology Empyema or “pus in the thoracic cage” as a complication of bacterial pneumonia is a disease feared in older days for its high mortality.

successful treatment of their empyema averaged ± 8 hospital days after beginning treatment for their empyema. Recovery time ranged from a mean of 9 to days depending on the procedure (Table 3). Long-term follow-up was available on three of the five patients discharged home from the hospital with empyema tubes.Empyema thoracis is defined as an accumulation of pus within the pleural cavity.

While the morbidity and mortality of this condition have undoubtedly improved over recent years debate continues regarding the nature and timing of surgical intervention.Empyema thoracis is treated with a mul-titude of therapeutic options. Optimal therapy and cost-containment requires selection of the most appropriate initial intervention.

Methods. A retrospective review of treatment modali-ties was performed on 77 patients diagnosed with empy-ema thoracis from to at one institution.
