Pleural Diseases book from C.H.I.P.S.

Pleural Diseases
Fifth edition
by Richard W. Light

Thoroughly updated for its Fifth Edition, Pleural Diseases provides a focused, single-authored perspective on the pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and management of pleural diseases.

This edition has three new chapters on:

  • physiological effects of a pneumothorax or pleural effusion
  • animal models in pleural investigation
  • cytokines and the pleura

Other chapters present significant updates on use of thoracoscopy in diagnosis of pleural effusions and on new diagnostic tests for mesothelioma, parapneumonic effusion, and effusions due to congestive heart failure.

Also included are discussions of recent advances in the therapy of malignant pleural effusions, mesothelioma, and parapneumonic effusions.
