SESSION TITLE: Disorders of the Pleura

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: It is estimated that up to 15% of patients with a pleural effusion do not have a diagnosis despite a complete evaluation. A high percentage of these idiopathic effusions turn out to be malignant if followed up. This has led to a more aggressive approach with medical thoracoscopy and pleural biopsies. There are only a few case reports in the literature of patients with persistent pleural effusion after mechanical trauma and thus their optimal management has not yet been defined.
