5. Pleurodesis in chronic effusions : Studies on inflammatory mediators, respiratory function, predictability of treatment outcome, drug efficiency and survival after treatment
Sammanfattning : Metastatic or primary (mesothelioma) malignancy of the pleura often generates major pleura] effusion, giving respiratory distress and low quality of life to the patients. Evacuation of fluid by thoracocentesis gives only temporary relief, therefore pleurodesis is generally regarded the best way to give palliation. LÄS MER
