STERITALC® consists of talcum which is mined in France and is specifically processed for medical use (talcum pleurodesis).
STERITALC® is suited for all indications of pleurodesis. It is non-soluble and induces permanent pleurodesis. Compared with tetracyclines, talcum is more effective and less painful.
As a rule, for malignant indications 3 to 5 g are used, for treatment of spontaneous pneumothorax 2 g are sufficient in most cases.
