A pleural effusion is an abnormal collection of fluid in the pleural space resulting from excess fluid production or decreased absorption or both.  It is the most common manifestation of pleural disease, with etiologies ranging from cardiopulmonary disorders to symptomatic inflammatory or malignant diseases requiring urgent evaluation and treatment. Background: Pleural effusions are common and devastating complication of advanced malignancies. Lung and breast cancers cause approximately 75% of all malignant pleural effusions. Pleural effusions associated with carcinoma breast (either malignant or paramalignant) pose diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas for the treating chest by: 2.

Malignant effusions (pleurites, ascites and pericarditis) are some of the most frequent manifestations of dissemination process of malignant tumors. Accumulation of the malignant fluid in serous cavities results in impairment of respiratory and cardiac functions, however long-term evacuation of the fluid leads to severe disorders of homeostasis that may directly cause the patient’s death.

Malignant pleural effusion (MPE) is a very disabling condition that often affects patients with advanced neoplasm.
Conservative approach, repeated thoracentesis, pleurodesis and use of indwelling pleural catheters (IPC) are the main methods to deal with this : Ricardo Mingarini Terra, Alberto Jorge Monteiro Dela Vega.
Malignant pleural effusions (MPE) are a common pathology, treated by respiratory physicians and thoracic surgeons alike. In recent years, several well-designed randomised clinical trials have been published that have changed the landscape of MPE management.

Its incidence and associated healthcare costs are rising and its management remains palliative, with median survival ranging from 3 to 12 months. During the last decade there has been significant progress in unravelling the pathophysiology of MPE, as well as Cited by: A pleural effusion is an accumulation of fluid within the pleural space.
Determining the underlying cause is facilitated by thoracentesis and pleural fluid analysis. The pleural fluid may be classified as a transudate or an exudate, depending on the etiology.

It covers key aspects relevant to clinicians, including mechanisms, pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnostics, relevant experimental models and interventions. Although broad in scope, readers will be able to reach into individual chapters to gain a focused. This book discusses as well the general features of malignant effusions that may suggest the diagnosis.

The extra fluid causes pressure on the heart, which keeps it from pumping blood normally.

Pericardial effusion is a common finding in everyday practice. Sometimes, its cause is obviously related to an underlying general or cardiac disease, or to a syndrome of inflammatory or infectious acute pericarditis.
