Management of Malignant Pleural Effusions Using an Indwelling Tunneled Pleural Catheter and Non-Vacuum Collection System

Indwelling tunneled pleural catheters have been successfully used to palliate dyspnea associated with recurrent malignant pleural effusions with few complications and spontaneous pleurodesis occurring in 30-50% of patients when using vacuum assisted drainage systems. Notably, all data on palliation of dyspnea as well as on rates of spontaneous pleurodesis have ...
