Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Tunneled pleural catheters (TPCs) are a safe, effective, and well-tolerated option for palliation in patients with malignant pleural effusion (MPEs) on an outpatient basis. TPCs are incorporated into international guidelines for the management of MPEs and appear to be the most cost-effective option according to current data.
