Abstract

The use of small-bore wire-guided chest drains for pleural effusions and pneumothorax has become popular; however, limited data are available on its efficacy and morbidity. The aim of this retrospective study is to measure, via the analysis of the so far largest reported cohort, the efficacy, safety, and tolerability of this approach in different clinical conditions.
