Objective To explore the influence of different postures for pleural reaction in patients undergoing thoracic interventional operations.
Methods The 695 patients with pleural effusion or hydro-pneumothorax underwent thoracic interventional operations (thoracentesis and thoracic catheter drainage) by ultrasound guidance from May, 2018 to February, 2021 were involved in this study. Two groups were divided in randomly，one was sitting posture group, 312 patients was preformed operations in this postures, the other group included 383 patients who were in supine or lateral positions. The pleural reaction rates of the two groups were compared.
Results The pleural reaction rates were 18.5% (58/312) in sitting posture group and 2.8% (11/383) in supine group, there were statistically significant difference between the two groups.
Conclusion Postures of patients can affect the occurrence of pleural reaction, supine position can reduce the incidence of pleural reaction.
