- Identification of clinical factors predicting Pleurx catheter removal in patients treated for malignant pleural effusion. [Journal Article]Eur J Cardiothorac Surg 2008; 33(1):89-94EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Pleur(x) catheters effectively relieve patients of dyspnea by evacuating the pleural space. Spontaneous pleural symphysis and catheter removal is more likely in patients with breast or gynecologic primary tumors, absence of chest wall irradiation, cytologic positivity, and complete re-expansion of the underlying lung.
