Source Name: European Journal of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery
The authors removed chest tubes after video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy with serous fluid production up to 500 ml/day in 622 patients. Of them, 17 (2,8%) needed reinterventions due to recurrent pleural effusion. There was no association to the postoperative day of tube removal.
