Finally it's here, the pleural podcast! Ever wondered why you can't get a straight answer about suction, talc and fibrinolytics? That's because the evidence until recently has been poor and we're still using guidelines written 12 years ago. But with the assistance of two excellent pleural specialists we pull apart the latest studies to discuss all your usual pleural conundrums to help you manage 90% of pleural disease within your local hospital, minimise the time spent in a hospital bed and reduce the need for a surgeon getting involved.
