Malignant Pleural Effusions | Dr. Parthiv Shah | Pulmonologist in Borivali.

Malignant pleural effusions often indicate incurable illness with significant morbidity and a poor one-year survival rate. Drainage of large, malignant effusions reduces dyspnea caused by diaphragm and chest wall deformation induced by the effusion in certain individuals. In more than 90% of cases, such effusions reoccur, needing recurrent thoracentesis, pleurodesis, or the insertion of indwelling tunneled catheters.
