Hello there..... I went through your query..... Treatment will consist of a combination of pleural punctures with bronchoscopy and pumping out the contents along with intrabronchial introduction of special medicinal substances; more often treatment is effected by surgery..... Consult your Pulmonologist for further advice....

Need to close fistula by some device. We need to study your CT scan, size and position of fistula, before further advice.
