Pleurodesis is a medical procedure used to prevent effusion, or the accumulation of fluid in the pleural space. The pleural space is the area between the lungs and the chest wall, and fluid in this space can interfere with breathing. Pleurodesis involves irritating the pleural surface, which causes the body to produce scar tissue that will limit the amount of space available for fluid to accumulate.
Respira Chest and Critical Care Centre offer Pleurodesis, a medical procedure that permanently closes the pleural space and prevents more fluid from building up. We use the latest technology and equipment to provide our patients with a safe and comfortable experience. Contact us today to learn more about this life-saving treatment!
