Best Lung and Pleural Infections Treatment in Delhi
A lung abscess is a subacute infection in which an area of necrosis forms in the lung parenchyma. It usually is in a dependent section of the lung, more often involves the right lung than the left, and is most commonly seen after aspiration of oropharyngeal secretions. Lung abscesses have a slow, insidious presentation and usually develop 1-2 weeks after the initial aspiration event. If not responsive to the conservative treatment, they may require Surgery.
Empyema is defined as pus in the pleural space. It typically is a complication of pneumonia. However, it can also arise from penetrating chest trauma, esophageal rupture, a complication from lung surgery in delhi, or injection of the pleural cavity after thoracentesis or chest tube placement. An empyema can also occur from the extension of a subdiaphragmatic or paravertebral abscess.
Early Surgery has been shown to benefit from treatment of uncontrolled infections, whether lung abscess or empyema.
