Abstract

1. The use of chemotherapy in the treatment of pulmonary tuberculosis has made resection a safe procedure. 2. One hundered and fifty consecutive resections performed by the authors have been reviewed. There were sixteen salvage cases in the group. 3. The over-all results were satisfactory. A morbidity rate of 24 percent and mortality rate of 3.3 percent. 4. Analysis of final results shows a cure rate of 95.5 percent (in those surviving surgery.)
