Pleural effusion is fluid that accumulates between the parietal and visceral pleura, the two membranes of the sac surrounding each lung. Normally this fluid is ‘produced’ by the parietal and visceral pleura and absorbed by the parietal pleura; however, increased production, decreased breakdown and a combination of both disturbs this equilibrium. Pleural effusion can be a manifestation of a variety of diseases. Rogier Boshuizen looks at the use of indwelling pleural catheters (IPC) to manage malignant pleural effusion.
