Abstract

Among the various methods of antibacterial preparation injection for the management of pulmonary tuberculosis the intrapulmonary injection techniques with the help of a needle-stream injector (NSI-1) still remain little studied. The experience of using these techniques for treating more than 200 patients, among whom 23 patients were later operated on, showed that the early use of the method (immediately after the diagnosis was established) helped to stabilize the process in 1-1.5 months. This made it possible to perform operations within 3 months after the diagnosis was made. The method proved effective also in patients who did not present favourable dynamics during 3-6 months of the use of the traditional therapeutic methods. The results obtained allow for the use on a wide scale of needle-stream injections in the preoperative management of destructive tuberculosis patients.
