Patients undergoing transthoracic needle core lung biopsy (TTNB) are at risk for biopsy-related pneumothorax. Instilling pleural sealant at the pleural puncture site reduces this risk. The impact of histologic changes associated with pleural sealant on assessing the histologic type and pathologic stage in lung cancer resection specimens has not been previously evaluated. All lung cancer resection specimens from 2015 to 2018 in which polyethylene glycol hydrogel pleural sealant was instilled during TTNB were reviewed. Thirty-three cases were identified.
