VIDEOTHORACOSCOPY IN THE TREATMENT OF COMPLICATED FORMS OF TUBERCULOUS PLEURISY
Over the last decades, the use of a high-tech, minimally invasive surgical method – videothoracoscopy with pleural biopsy has taken a leading role in the differential diagnosis of pleurisy etiology. In the Regional Tuberculosis Dispensary (Aktobe) a methodology (VATS) was introduced – Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. For effectiveness and safety research of VATS, 60 patients with complicated forms of tuberculous pleurisy were taken.
