Ann King Edward Med Uni Jan ;10(4):449-51.
Study was conducted to evaluate the efficacy of post operative chest physiotherapy in cases of thoracic surgery. Eighty patients who underwent various surgical procedures were divided into two groups: one where adequate physiotherapy was carried out and the other where adequate physiotherapy could not be carried out. It was found that rate of postoperative complications was double in the group where chest physiotherapy could not be carried out due to any reasons.
