||Haemoptysis in pneumoconiotic coalminers
||Les hémoptysies chez les mineurs de charbon pneumoconiotiques. [in French]|
||Dec. 1973, Vol.145, No.20, p.881-887. Illus.
||Review of the various causes of haemoptysis which should be discounted before attributing the latter to pneumoconiotic lesions: tuberculosis complications, bronchopulmonary cancer, intercavitary aspergillosis, aseptic necrosis with progressive massive fibrosis, and haemoptysic bronchial lesions. Once diagnosed, these disorders become eligible for compensation as medico-legal complications. An account is given of specific treatment for the disorder responsible and the conduct to maintain for this always alarming symptom. New ways have been opened to therapy by the recent advances in the study of bronchial arteries.
