In thoracic surgery, it is usual to place apical and basal drains for complete drainage of air and fluid out of the pleural cavity. The routinely used drains are mainly made of plastic. Recently silastic drains of smaller size are used without any complication. The investigators designed a prospective randomized trial to compare the draining properties of the two types of drains following various resections in thoracic surgery.
