Aktueller Stellenwert der Chirurgie in der Therapie der Lungentuberkulose


Langhammer, B; Inci, I; Weder, W (2011). Aktueller Stellenwert der Chirurgie in der Therapie der Lungentuberkulose. Therapeutische Umschau, 68(7):407-410.

Abstract

The different modalities in the treatment of tuberculosis (TB) changed within the last century. With the beginning of the era of effective antibiotic treatment, indication for surgical methods became rare. The combination of different classes of antibiotics to treat TB is most often effective but several multi-drug-resistant germs were created, leading to the need of surgical resection as adjuvant treatment. The aim of this review is to summarize the current role of surgical therapy in treating TB.

Zusammenfassung:
Seit Ende des letzten Weltkriegs hat sich die Therapie der Tuberkulose durch den Einsatz der verschiedenen Antibiotika maßgeblich verändert. Die Tuberkulose ist zu einer in der Regel medikamentös heilbaren Erkrankung geworden. Durch zum Teil unsachgemäßen Einsatz von Einzelsubstanzen ist es zum Auftreten von Resistenzen gegen die antibiotische Therapie gekommen. Die chirurgische Resektion zerstörter, oft kavernös veränderter Lungenanteile hat einen definierten Stellenwert als adjuvante Therapie in der Behandlung der Tuberkulose, meist der multiresistenten Tuberkulose.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
