Pleural catheter insertion

Pleural catheter insertion, also known as "Impact of Indwelling Pleural Catheter Placement on Patients"., is a procedure used to drain fluid that has accumulated in the pleural space, the area between the lungs and the chest wall. This procedure is typically performed to manage recurrent pleural effusions (the accumulation of fluid in the pleural space) or malignant pleural effusions (pleural effusions caused by cancer).

During a pleural catheter insertion, the patient is usually seated or lying down, and the skin over the chest is cleaned and numbed with a local anesthetic. The healthcare provider then inserts a thin, flexible catheter through the chest wall and into the pleural space. The catheter is connected to a drainage bag or bottle, which collects the fluid as it drains out of the pleural space.

Pleural catheter insertion is a relatively safe and effective procedure that can be performed in a doctor's office or hospital setting. It is usually performed under local anesthesia and does not require a hospital stay. However, some patients may experience mild discomfort or pain during the procedure.

In Dubai, pleural catheter insertion is typically performed by healthcare providers who specialize in the treatment of lung conditions, such as pulmonologists or thoracic surgeons. The healthcare providers at the Dubai Thoracic Surgery Clinic, located at the Dr. Rami Hamed Center, have extensive experience in performing pleural catheter insertion and work closely with a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to provide comprehensive care for patients undergoing this procedure.
