PURPOSE: Chemical pleurodesis is the best available treatment for malignant pleural effusion when the underlying cause cannot be cured. Talc is considered the most effective chemical agent for MPE, but the availability of medical grade talc remains a constraint in China. Povidone-iodine is an inexpensive and easily available topical antiseptic, it has been shown to be an effective and safe sclerosing agent for chemical pleurodesis. The purpose of our study is to compare the efficacy and safety of povidone-iodine with talc for pleurodesis in patients with MPE admitted in Peking University First Hospital during 2008-2015.
