Thoracic ultrasound as an early predictor of pleurodesis success in malignant pleural effusion

Abstract:
BACKGROUND: Malignant pleural effusion (MPE) is common and imposes a significant burden on patients and health-care providers. Most patients require definitive treatment, usually drainage and chemical pleurodesis, to relieve symptoms and prevent fluid recurrence. Thoracic ultrasound (TUS) can identify the presence of pleural adhesions in other clinical scenarios, and could therefore have a role in predicting long-term pleurodesis success or failure in MPE.
