Summary

Thoroughly updated for its Fifth Edition, Dr. Light's classic text 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, and 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.
