Abstract

Fifty-five patients who underwent fluoroscopically guided needle aspiration lung biopsy were randomly assigned to one of two postbiopsy treatment groups: Patients were placed recumbent with puncture site either down (n = 36) or up (n = 19) for at least 1 hour. No significant difference in pneumothorax rate was seen between the two groups. Chest tube placement, however, was required in 21% (four of 19) of the puncture-site-up group versus 3% (one of 36) of the puncture-site-down group, which was a significant difference (P = .04). Puncture-site-down postbiopsy positioning reduces the proportion of patients requiring chest tube placement after lung biopsy.
