SURGERY MAY IMPROVE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR MESOTHELIOMA PATIENTS

Results from a clinical trial, conducted by Papworth Hospital NHS (National Health Service) Foundation Trust of the UK, indicate that partial pleurectomy significantly improved the quality of life and control of pleural effusion (accumulation of fluid between layers of tissue that line the lungs and chest cavity) in mesothelioma patients. The multicenter clinical trial, or MesoVATS Trial, included 175 patients with pleural mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos.
