The relationship of pleural manometry with postthoracentesis chest radiographic findings in malignant pleural effusion

Abstract:

BACKGROUND:Both elevated pleural elastance (E-PEL) and radiographic evidence of incomplete lung expansion following thoracentesis have been used to exclude patients with a malignant pleural effusion (MPE) from undergoing pleurodesis. This article reports on a cohort of patients with MPE in whom complete drainage was attempted with pleural manometry to determine the frequency of E-PEL and its relation with postthoracentesis radiographic findings. METHODS:Seventy consecutive patients with MPE w...
