MesoTRAP was a pilot clinical trial and feasibility study.


The study compared video-assisted thoracoscopic partial pleurectomy/decortication with indwelling pleural catheter in patients with trapped lung due to malignant pleural mesothelioma designed to address recruitment and randomisation uncertainties and sample size requirements for a Phase III trial.

The protocol was published in BMJ Open Respiratory Research and can be viewed here.
