The Division of the Respiratory and Critical Care of the Department of Medicine, PYNEH, performed the first pleuroscopy (medical thoracoscopy) in our hospital at the bronchoscopy suite. The procedure was successfully demonstrated by Dr MIU Pui Ling Flora, who has undergone pleuroscopy and interventional pulmonology training in the Singapore General Hospital under Dr LEE Pyng. The patient was an old lady who had massive right-sided malignant pleural effusion from non-small cell carcinoma. Pleuroscopy showed multiple pleural deposits, from which multiple biopsies were taken, and talc pleurodesis was done afterwards. The whole process was witnessed by the Respiratory and Critical Care Team (made up of members from both the Department of Medicine and Department of Intensive Care) and the Department of Surgery (Dr TAI Yuk Ping and Dr KK YAU).
