4 Cases of Chronic Empyema with sepsis treated with E-flap and Myoplasty
Seok Jeoung Woo
The management of chronic empyema remains still disturbing. These patients always have chances to exposure septic conditions. We presents 4 patients of chronic empyema with sepsis who underwent E-flap and Myoplasty with extrathoracic skeletal muscles between December 1994 and March 1997. Two patients who had BPF were treated with intercostal muscle flap as co-procedures. Intervals between first E-flap and second Myoplasty ranged from 5 to 10 months. There was no morbidity or mortality. We think these stepwise procedure offers a chance to terminate these debilitating disease.
