PMID:  20947604     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 72-year-old man underwent post-infarction ventricular septal defect repair. Postoperatively, he required prolonged ventilation and could not be weaned from positive-pressure-assisted ventilation because of intractable bilateral pleural effusions. Conservative therapy was ineffective. After instituting pleuroperitoneal shunting, the patient could be weaned easily from a respirator.
