Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Bronchopleural fistulas associated with empyema can occur as a life-threatening sequelae after pulmonary resection, most frequently occurring after pneumonectomy. With the use of the flexible bronchoscope, the bronchopleural fistula of a 62-year-old critically ill woman was permanently sealed with a fibrin sealant and a small section of demineralized human spongiosa. Closure of bronchopleural fistulas with the application of fibrin sealant plus human spongiosa may offer a valuable addition to the armament of therapeutic alternatives.
