Abstract

A 66-year-old male was admitted to our hospital for management of right pneumonia with disseminated intravascular coagulation. The patient was treated with antibiotics and anti-coagulation therapy, recovering from pneumonia and DIC, resulting in right pleural empyema. Debridement with video-assisted thoracic surgery was performed, removing fibrin clots and septa from both visceral and parietal pleural surfaces. The chest tube was removed one week later, discharged two weeks after the operation. Thoracoscopic debridement and pleural irrigation for the patients with postpneumonia empyema are safe, effective and minimally invasive surgical procedure.
