  • INTERNAL CLOSURE OF AN ASPERGILLOMA CAVITY - REPORT OF A NEW TECHNIQUE AND REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE SOUTHERN MEDICAL JOURNAL Bolton, J. W., Lazar, H. L. 1993; 86 (11): 1286-1291

    Abstract:

    We have described a case in which closure of an aspergilloma cavity was done internally when it was determined that pulmonary resection was too hazardous. There was an intense inflammatory reaction surrounding the aorta and pulmonary artery. In the absence of gross purulence and underlying parenchymal infection, this technique may be used to avoid the prolonged hospitalization and bronchopleural fistulas associated with external drainage procedures.
