Figure 10: Insertion of tunneled pleural catheter during medical thoracoscopy. A trocar is inserted on the left side, allowing a pleuroscope to directly visualize the pleural surfaces as well as observe the insertion of the tunneled catheter. A introducer is seen being inserted into the pleural space, allowing the distal end of the tunneled catheter to be placed properly.
