Abstract

This paper is based on experience of 76 resections for pulmonary tuberculosis. Of these, 70 cases have been followed up for periods from 4 months to 3 years. However, as the majority of post-operative bronchopleural fistulae occur within four months of operation, the full 76 cases have been accepted for the purpose of this analysis.
