PLEURODESIS

The manufacture of adhesions between the parietal and visceral pleura. The procedure is used in the treatment of bronchopleural fistulas, malignant pleural effusions, and pneumothorax and often involves instillation of chemicals or another agents into the pleural space causing, in effect, a pleuritis that seals the air leak.
