Frequently Asked Questions

This is the diagnostic procedure which is done by inserting a small needle or tube in the space between the lung and the chest wall, known as pleural space.

It is also known as Threncetsis or pleural tap or ultrasound-guided tapping.

Thoracentesis is a treatment in which a medical professional uses a needle to remove excess fluid from the pleural area, which surrounds the lungs. It is used to check for infections or other disorders in the fluid and to reduce pressure in the chest that causes difficulty breathing. Thoracentesis is a short, low-risk procedure done while you're awake.

To find out why fluid is accumulating in the pleural area, this operation is typically carried out as a diagnostic procedure. This also may be done for therapeutic reasons to relieve the symptoms associated with fluid.

These risks associated with this procedure:

  • Collapse of the lungs
  • Pneumothorax
  • Fluid buildup in the lungs
  • Injury to the liver, spleen, or heart
  • Breathlessness
  • Cough with or without blood
