En block resection of hepatocellular carcinoma and the involved diaphragm will, towards the end of operation, require evacuation of the pleural cavity, usually with a chest drain. We describe our method and experience of evacuating the pleural cavity, at the time of diaphragmatic repair, with an infant feeding catheter without the need of a chest drain. We have found the method safe and efficacious.
