Satisfactory Essays
Post biopsy complications search After withdrawal of the introducer needle the biopsy site was then dressed with sterile gauzes and a post procedural CT chest done to evaluate for the presence of parenchymal haemorrhage or pneumothorax around the puncture site. Parenchymal haemorrhage was identified as areas of hyperattenuation around the lesion or along the needle path. The grade of pneumothorax and haemohrrage was determined accordion to known CT criteria [37, 38]. Small asymptomatic immediate pneumothorax was treated conservatively while placement of tube thoracostomy was reserved for patients with signs of respiratory compromise.
