Palliative Procedures

Cancer surgeries cause extreme pain to the patient. 70% and above patients go through pain during treatment.

The rest of them go through higher levels of diseases. The voltage pain decides the quality of the treatment. The palliative procedure is to minimize the pain of the patient to a large extent. It is also known as Cancer directed surgery. It removes the cancer tissue.

There is non-cancer-directed surgery as well which handles nerve block procedures or stent placement to deaden the obstruction.

Pleural tapping : Pleural tapping is known as thoracentesis to pull out the fluid from the lining space outside the lungs and the wall of the chest. When there is an excess accumulation between the layers then the procedure takes place.
