Abstract

Prolonged air leaks (PAL) complicate 10-15% of lung resections, delaying chest tube removal and prolonging length of hospital stay (LOS). Non consensus exists for managing this common complication, despite favourable results for autologous blood patch pleurodesis (ABPP) in the literature. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness and safety of ABPP.
