What causes pleural effusion?
The most common causes of transudative (watery fluid) pleural effusions include:
• Heart failure
• Pulmonary embolism
• Cirrhosis
• Post open heart surgery
Exudative (protein-rich fluid) pleural effusions are most commonly caused by:
• Pneumonia
• Tuberculosis
• Cancer
• Pulmonary embolism
• Kidney disease
• Inflammatory disease
Other less common causes of pleural effusion include:
• Autoimmune disease
• Bleeding (due to chest trauma)
• Chylothorax (due to trauma)
• Rare chest and abdominal infections
• Asbestos pleural effusion (due to exposure to asbestos)
• Meig’s syndrome (due to a benign ovarian tumor)
• Ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome
How is pleural effusion diagnosed?
• Chest x-ray
• Computed tomography (CT) scan of the chest
• Ultrasound of the chest
• Thoracentesis (a needle is inserted between the ribs to remove fluid)
• Pleural fluid analysis (an examination of the fluid removed from the pleura space)
How is pleural effusion treated?
• Thoracocentesis – remove all fluid (water) with syringe and needle
• Thoracostomy – a small tube inserted between the ribs into the chest cavity to remove all water.
• Thoracoscopy – Video-assisted Thoracoscopy, like laparoscopy a small cut is made between ribs and telescope passed into the chest cavity. Where lung is separated from the chest wall, all pus (water) is removed under vision.
• Antibiotics if infection and chemotherapy/radiotherapy if cancer.
