INTRODUCTION Previous randomized trials failed to demonstrate a decrease in mortality of patients with acute lung injury treated by exogenous surfactant. The aim of this prospective randomized study was to evaluate the effects of exogenous porcine-derived surfactant on pulmonary reaeration and lung tissue in patients with acute lung injury and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ALI/ARDS). METHODS Twenty patients with ALI/ARDS were studied (10 treated by surfactant and 10 controls) in whom a… CONTINUE READING
