I have nothing but the highest praise for this hospital and the staff. I was brought in after breaking my ankle in 2 places and was terrified to learn i could not fly home to Australia with a big operation first. Having no choice but to trust them the operation was carried out 5 days ago and I will be repatriated by Allianz travel insurance in two days time.

What you need to know about Pleurodesis in Vietnam

Pleurodesis Procedure

Pleurodesis is a procedure to adhere the lung to the chest wall. The procedure closes up the space between the outer lining of the lung and the chest wall to prevent air and fluid from building up around the lungs. It is performed on people who are experiencing pleural effusion (a buildup of fluid around the lungs) or have had a pneumothorax (a recurring collapsed lung).

What does a Pleurodesis Procedure Involve?

During pleurodesis, your doctor will give you anesthetic to numb the affected area and sedation to help you relax. There are two different ways to do the procedure, surgical and chemical. With surgical pleurodesis, your doctor makes an incision in your chest wall and inserts a plastic tube into the chest cavity. Then, an irritating chemical is sprayed around your lungs. The lining of the lung (pleura) will adhere tightly to the chest wall and prevent fluid from collecting around your lung. The incision will be closed with stitches. With chemical pleurodesis, your doctor injects medication into your chest.

MyMediTravel currently lists 55 facilities in Vietnam offering Pleurodesis procedures - see above for the complete list, along with estimated prices. The price of a Pleurodesis can vary according to each individual’s case and will be determined based on your medical profile and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

How Long Should I Stay in Vietnam for a Pleurodesis Procedure?

The length of your hospital stay may vary from two days to ten days, depending on what condition caused you to undergo pleurodesis. Plan to stay in the Vietnam for at least 14 days for the initial recovery and for follow-up check-ups.

What's the Recovery Time for Pleurodesis Procedures in Vietnam?

The recovery period depends on your condition and which method you underwent. In general, you will have to rest for 1-2 weeks and you should be able to get back to work within 4 weeks following the procedure. 

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Pleurodesis Procedures in Vietnam?

Your doctor will give you follow-up instructions regarding dietary restrictions, exercises, and wound care. You should avoid baths, hot tubs, and pools until your incision has completely healed. You should also avoid holding or straining your breath.

What's the Success Rate of Pleurodesis Procedures in Vietnam?

The success rate of pleurodesis in people with pleural effusion not caused by cancer is around 75% to 80%. The side effects and risks you need to be aware of include fever, shortness of breath, pain, a collection of pus in the pleural space, and infection.

Are there Alternatives to Pleurodesis Procedures in Vietnam?

The alternative to pleurodesis is pleural catheter placement, which allows you to have a smaller tube than a chest tube. Discuss with your doctor the pros and cons of a catheter as well as pleurodesis for your condition.

What Should You Expect Before and After the Procedure

If you have pneumothorax or pleural effusion, your lung function will be greatly improved after pleurodesis.
