Dr. Mrityunjay Sharma and Dr. Deepanjali Sharma*

ABSTRACT

Introduction: Pleural effusion is characterized by the collection of excess fluid within the pleural space caused by different etiologies. Thoracentesis is done as diagnostic or therapeutic intervention. Challenges: Iatrogenic pneumothorax is one of the complications of thoracentesis, which can occur due to the air entry in the intra-pleural space through the puncture site during or after thoracentesis, or through the puncture of lung parenchyma. This complication is further increased in low BMI and underweight patients. Methods: A theoretical model of a novel technique of thoracentesis, hereafter will be referred as Sharmas' Technique of Thoracentesis is explained. This model of thoracentesis also includes a novel pulling and sliding thumb technique, and is further explained. Benefits: Using Sharmas' technique of Thoracentesis, the incidence of iatrogenic pneumothorax should be hypothetically reduced compared to the conventional methods of thoracentesis.
