英文摘要: Abstract(#br)Chemical pleurodesis is widely used in symptomatic patients with malignant pleural effusion to relieve symptoms, prevent fluid recurrence, and improve quality of life. Talc has been repeatedly found to be the most effective sclerosant agent, and thoracoscopic talc poudrage has been found to be the most effective pleurodesis technique. A homogeneous talc distribution on the visceral and parietal pleura helps to achieve complete pleural symphysis. We have recently adopted a new suitable sterile device that delivers talc under low and constant pressure, facilitating uniform coating of the whole pleural surface and avoiding inappropriate deposition of talc clumps.
