Urokinase application for hemothorax in pulmonary mucormycosis


Hodel, Lucas; Inci, Ilhan; Schanz, Urs; Vrugt, Bart; Weder, Walter; Hillinger, Sven (2018). Urokinase application for hemothorax in pulmonary mucormycosis. Journal of Thoracic Disease, 10(3):E175-E178.

Abstract

We present an exemplary case of an immunocompromised patient with pulmonary mucormycosis successfully treated by a combination of surgical removal of the mucor and urokinase to control the recurring hemothorax. The use of urokinase in hemothoraces is a way to reduce repetitive surgeries in weak patients.
