Management of intact and ruptured pulmonary hydatid cysts

Tunisia is an endemic area for lung hydatidosis. The clinical presentation depends on whether the cyst is intact or ruptured. We aimed to compare the clinical and therapeutic features between intact and ruptured hydatid cysts of the lung.Between January 2014 and December 2017, 152 patients were managed for a lung hydatid disease in the thoracic surgery department of Abderrahmen Mami hospital. A retrospective analysis was performed and the patients were divided into two groups based on whether the hydatid cyst was intact (group 1, n=43) or ruptured (group 2, n=109).The median age was 36 years old[5-84years]. Reported complications were:infection(50%), rupture of hydatid cyst in the bronchi(40%) and rupture in the pleura(10%). Multiple hydatidosis was reported in 30 patients(19.7%), associated with a hydatid pulmonary embolism in 3 patients. Chest pain was more frequent incase of an intact cysts(79%versus49%, p

CONCLUSIONS: The device, which combined 20 g of CELOX particles and 20 pieces of CELOX (8 g) sponge tablets with 50-mmHg intra-abdominal compression for 10 minutes, prolonged the ST by an average of 30 minutes with less BL. It was not markedly different from the full four quadrants gauze packing of liver in hemostatic effect, with no CELOX clot formation in other organs.

This perturbation provides a model for the effect of infected human movement between ...

ConclusionCardiac hydatid cyst is a rare finding with a wide range of signs and symptoms. We are reporting this case to underline that cardiac hydatidosis should be considered as a differential diagnosis in young patients who suddenly develop acute limb ischaemic without a history of both cardiac diseases and trauma that lives in endemic regions of hydatidosis.
