The Second Edition of this book was the Winner of the First Prize (Respiratory Category) at the British Medical Association Medical Book Awards. Textbook of Pleural Diseases is a comprehensive reference that covers both the basic and clinical science on pleural diseases. Building on the highly respected previous editions, it includes a detailed basic science section for enhanced understanding of both the physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms that underpin diseases of the pleura. The clinical sections are written in a uniform style and include the definition, epidemiology, etiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, investigations, treatments, and possible complications for various pleural diseases. Other clinical chapters discuss both familiar and less common disease aspects. Five new chapters have been added covering new technologies in the clinical management of pleural diseases, procedural complications and safety measures, and the setting up of a pleural practice. The remaining chapters have been substantially updated. About a third of the 50 chapters in this edition are written by new expert authors providing a fresh view and reflecting the expansion of knowledge in the field. Each chapter includes a bullet-point summary, and published management guidelines are included where relevant. Also included is a "Key Points" section in each chapter that highlights patient management, making this an indispensable reference for pulmonary physicians, internists, thoracic surgeons and trainees worldwide.

Now in a fully revised and updated Sixth Edition, Dr. Light's classic text, Pleural Diseases, delivers even more focused content on the pathophysiology, clinical manifestations, diagnosis, and management of pleural diseases. The text's straightforward, single-author perspective combines procedural expertise, insights on recent technical advances, and clear recommendations for both diagnosis and treatment. This edition includes current and timely information on management of both paraneoplastic and malignant pleural effusions, new cautions regarding the need for training in thoracentesis, diagnosis of tuberculous pleural effusions, and newer agents for producing effusions. Inside this powerful, fact-packed resource: three algorithms for diagnosis of pleural effusions help identify causes of pathologic findings; chapters on thoracentesis, pleural biopsy, chest tube insertion, and thoracoscopy provide indications and contraindications along with step-by-step procedural guidance; detailed coverage of parapneumonic and malignant pleural effusions addresses the most recent advances in treatment. New to the sixth edition: updated treatment regimens for paraneoplastic lesions broaden therapeutic options; consensus-building content presents a unified approach to the use of indwelling catheters in the management of malignant pleural effusions; new emphasis on training for thoracentesis helps minimize procedure-related morbidity and mortality; new recommendations regarding chest tubes help ensure the proper tube is used for each procedure; and new tests refine the diagnosis of tuberculous pleural effusions. Plus ...a free companion website provides on-demand access to the fully searchable text and images.
