VELANDIA MAHECHA, Rafael Alberto  y  BRITO ROJAS, Isabel Cristina. YODOPOVIDONE IN CHEMICAL PLEURODESIS IN PATIENTS WITH PLEURAL EFUSSION AND SPONTANEOUS NEUMOTÓRAX: CASE SERIES. Rev Cient Cienc Méd [online]. 2019, vol.22, n.1, pp. 17-23. ISSN 2077-3323.

Introduction: Chemical pleurodesis adheres the pleura to prevent pulmonary collapses, the beneficial result of the procedure as a treatment is determined according to whether or not there is a symptomatic effusion or pneumothorax. Objective: To describe the percentage of pleural effusion or recurrent spontaneous pneumothorax in subjects older than 18 years who were taken to pleurodesis with iodopovidone in a University Hospital of third level in Bogotá. Methods: Descriptive study of case series. We studied 30 patients with pleural effusion and spontaneous pneumothorax who were taken to pleurodesis using different techniques between January 2011 and May 2014 in a third level University Hospital in Bogotá. All patients older than 18 years who presented the pathologies described above and who underwent chemical pleurodesis with Yodopovidona were included in the study. We excluded patients under 18 years and who underwent pleurodesis by other techniques or with other substances. 14 patients met the inclusión criteria. The data was collected by reviewing medical records. The statistical analysis was performed using frequency tables, calculation of central tendency measures and percentages. Results: The average age was 61,85 years. 57,14% of the patients presented malignant pleural effusion. A complete response to pleurodesis in a one-month follow-up was presented in 13 of the patients evaluated. Pain was reported as the only adverse effect. The average length of hospital stay was 15 days. Conclusion: Based on the present study and others, it can be considered that Yodopovidona is a safe, effective, easy to obtain and low cost agent for the performance of chemical pleurodesis.
