Rapid Pleurodesis Through an Indwelling Pleural Catheter

Patients will be screened throughout the year as part of the clinical referral process to the Interventional Pulmonology service at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania for the management of a malignant pleural effusion. Patients eligible for inclusion based on the clinical evaluation will be approached for enrollment. Written ...

Phase N/A

Study Designed to Optimize the Treatment of Primary Pneumothorax

Background Knowledge about incidence, risk factors and genetic predispositions of primary spontaneous pneumothorax in young adults is very limited, and treatment has also been controversial. Typically, the first incidence is treated conservatively with simple chest tube drainage and only if the disease reoccurs is surgery considered. However, conventional treatment may ...

Phase N/A

Study of Variations of Pleural and Esophageal Pressures Under Mechanical Ventilation After Lung Transplantation

Pulmonary transplantation is a model of acute lung injury due to ischemia-reperfusion phenomena responsible in 1 in 4 patients for the occurrence of primary graft dysfunction (DPG), which penalizes graft prognosis in the short to medium term. The survival of transplant patients. Furthermore, the post-operative period is a complex period ...

Phase N/A

Fibrinolysis Compared to Thoracoscopy for Pleural Infection

Background: Pleural infection (empyema or complex parapneumonic effusion (CPPE)) represents one of the most common clinical diagnoses encountered in clinical practice in the United States (US) It is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality despite advances in medical diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Objective: Compare two standard of care treatments: TPA/DNase ...

Phase N/A

Fibrinolytic Therapy Versus Medical Thoracoscopy

Pleural infection (empyema or complex parapneumonic effusion [CPPE]) represents one of the common clinical diagnoses encountered in clinical practice in the United States (US) and worldwide. The incidence of pleural infection continues to rise with an annual incidence of approximately 65,000 in the US and United Kingdom (UK). It is ...

Phase

Point-of-care Ultrasound in Finland

This study has two aims. Deep venous thrombosis is a common suspected medical condition. If it cannot be excluded clinically and using D-dimer, ultrasound examination is required. An option for traditional radiologist-performed ultrasound is a 2-point compression ultrasound (2-CUS). The safety of this technique is proven. However there does not ...

Phase N/A

Impact of Respiratory Physiotherapy in the Management of Infectious Pleural Effusion

This is a multicenter, prospective and randomized trial. Objective: To determine if the Chest physiotherapy (CP) associated with conventional medical treatment (CT) improves functional sequelae secondary to pleural infectious disease, defined as an increased of 15% in Vital Functional Capacity (VFC). Adult patients with diagnosis of pleural infection will be ...

Phase N/A

Tunneled Pleural Catheters for Refractory Effusions Attributed to Congestive Heart Failure (TREAT-CHF) Trial

TREAT-CHF is a randomized trial studying tunneled pleural catheter (TPC) versus standard medical management for the treatment recurrent symptomatic pleural effusions secondary to CHF that are refractory to maximal medical therapy. All trial participants will be adults with congestive heart failure (CHF) already managed with maximal medical therapy, as determined ...

Fibrinolysis Compared to Thoracoscopy for Pleural Infection

Background: Pleural infection (empyema or complex parapneumonic effusion (CPPE)) represents one of the most common clinical diagnoses encountered in clinical practice in the United States (US) It is associated with substantial morbidity and mortality despite advances in medical diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. Objective: Compare two standard of care treatments: TPA/DNase ...

Phase

Talc Outpatient Pleurodesis With Indwelling Catheter

The study design is a prospective, randomized and controlled trial comparing a new protocol to the standard of care. To the investigators knowledge, there is no similar protocol and this will be a single center, pilot study. The control arm will consist of subjects who meet the inclusion criteria for ...
