Removing the fluid thoracentesis may be done if there is a lot of fluid and it is causing chest pressure, shortness of breath, or a low oxygen level. Pleural efusino is secreted by the parietal layer of the pleura and reabsorbed by the lymphatics in the pleugal dependent parts of the parietal pleura, primarily the diaphragmatic and mediastinal regions.

If the chest tube becomes clogged, fluid will be left behind and the pleurodesis will fail.
