BACKGROUND:  We compared the chest configurations of patients with primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) and age-sex-matched controls to determine the presence of chest wall deformities in patients with PSP. METHODS:  We retrospectively enrolled 166 male patients with PSP (age, 18-19 years) and 85 age-sex-matched controls without PSP, who simultaneously underwent chest computed tomography (CT) and radiography at one of two institutes. After correcting for height, the following thoracic parameters were comparatively evaluated between the two groups: maximal internal transverse (T) and anteroposterior (W) diameters of the chest, maximal internal lung height (H), Haller index (T/W), and T/Height, T/H, W/Height, W/H, and H/Height ratios...

Previous studies have indicated that X-ray irradiation may increase the risk of chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), and the incidence of spontaneous pneumothorax in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is higher than in the general population. Patients with AS usually develop spontaneous pneumothorax several years after the diagnosis of AS. The present study reports the unusual case and complicated clinical history of a 29-year-old man with recurrent pneumothorax and AS, who developed CML following repeated exposure to low doses of radiation via diagnostic X-rays and chest computed tomography imaging...

INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary interstitial glycogenosis (PIG) is an idiopathic lung condition that remains clinically underrecognized despite a growing body of literature. CASE REPORT: We present a case of PIG with pulmonary hypertension without underlying cardiac disease. This patient presented with respiratory distress and spontaneous pneumothorax at 6 months of age. Laboratory and imaging investigations demonstrated nonspecific features, but refractory pulmonary hypertension was confirmed on cardiac catheterization...

Birt-Hogg-Dubé syndrome (BHDS) is a rare hereditary autosomal dominant condition characterised by benign cutaneous lesions, lung cysts, increased risk of spontaneous pneumothorax and renal cancer. It shows great heterogenous presentation within and between affected families. We report a case of a Danish female patient with recurrent pneumothoraces as the first symptom of BHDS. Over the years, she developed skin changes, and a family history of skin changes, pneumothoraces and renal cancer was discovered. BHDS was suspected, a genetic analysis was performed and a pathogenic variation c...

Marfan syndrome is a multisystem connective tissue disorder of autosomal dominant inheritance, which typically involves manifestations of the cardiovascular, skeletal, and ocular systems. Pulmonary involvement occurs less frequently. We report a case of a 28-year-old woman suffering from hours of sudden onset, progressive shortness of breath and right-sided chest pain. On physical examination, she presented decreased breath sound on the right side of chest, together with severe scoliosis and marfanoid habitus...

Background: Patients with small pneumothoraces are usually treated with oxygen therapy. However, evidence that oxygen therapy increases resolution rate is based on small populations with secondary spontaneous pneumothorax. Therefore, this study aimed to confirm whether oxygen therapy increases the resolution rate of primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP). Methods: We retrospectively reviewed records of patients with PSP who had undergone outpatient observation (room air group) and those who were admitted for oxygen therapy (O2 group) between March 2005 and February 2016...

BACKGROUND:  The optimal treatment of primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) is still controversial. The purpose of this study was to analyze the incidence of recurrence, the recurrence-free time, and to identify risk factors for recurrence after PSP. METHODS:  We performed a retrospective analysis of 135 patients with PSP who were treated either conservatively with a chest tube (n = 87) or surgically with video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS; n = 48) from January 2008 through December 2012...

One in 10 patients suffering from primary spontaneous pneumothoraces has a family history of the disorder. Such familial pneumothoraces can occur in isolation, but can also be the presentation of serious genetic disorders with life-threatening vascular or cancerous complications. As the pneumothorax frequently precedes the more dangerous complications by many years, it provides an opportunity to intervene in a focused manner, permitting the practice of precision medicine. In this review, we will discuss the clinical manifestations and underlying biology of the genetic causes of familial pneumothorax...

INTRODUCTION: Despite recent advances in respiratory support, the wide use of antenatal steroids and surfactant replacement therapy, respiratory problems continue to represent the leading cause of mortality in premature infants during the neonatal period. In the last few years, HHHFNC has been widely adopted as a mode of noninvasive respiratory support for infants with respiratory difficulties. However, data of the safety and efficacy of HHHFNC use in extremely premature infants are scarce...

PURPOSE: Spontaneous pneumothorax (PNTX) is a common disease frequently operated at specialized thoracic surgery units. Videothoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has become the standard for treatment and recurrence prevention. While there is broad consensus regarding indications and techniques of PNTX surgery, postoperative risks and consecutive patient behavioral advice have not been sufficiently elucidated. METHODS: Single-center cohort analysis of 641 patients operated for primary PNTX by VATS over 10 years...

PURPOSE: There is no consensus in the pediatric surgical community about when to recommend video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for patients with primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP). We aimed to identify factors that predict the likelihood of requiring VATS, and to compare recurrence rates and healthcare utilization among different management approaches to PSP. METHODS: A retrospective chart review and a telephone survey were conducted on all patients 12-21years who were diagnosed with PSP from 2007 to 2015...

This clinical practice guideline (CPG) emerges as an initiative of the scientific committee of the Spanish Society of Thoracic Surgery. We formulated PICO (patient, intervention, comparison, and outcome) questions on various aspects of spontaneous pneumothorax. For the evaluation of the quality of evidence and preparation of recommendations we followed the guidelines of the Grading of recommendations, Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) working group.

We report the case of a 14-year-old boy presenting to our unit because of a spontaneous left pneumothorax. Over the 3 preceding weeks, he described a rhythmic precordial click and the sensation of bubbles floating inside his chest. This noise, audible to the patient and his family without a medical device, proved to be the Hamman sign, a rare although typical sound formerly related to pneumomediastinum that can be exceptionally encountered in isolated left pneumothorax. Its pathophysiology remains unclear...

INTRODUCTION: The timing of surgical intervention in the management of spontaneous pneumothorax remains controversial. The aim of this multicenter review was to compare management strategies and outcomes in children with spontaneous pneumothorax. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed patients 10-19 years old in the Pediatric Health Information System admitted for spontaneous pneumothorax from 2010 to 2014. Three treatment groups were identified based on initial hospital management-no intervention, initial chest tube placement, and operation; and outcomes were compared...

Background: The surgical treatment of secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (SSP) can be complicated by fragile lung parenchyma. The preoperative prediction of air leakage could help prevent intraoperative lung injury during manipulation of the lung. Common sites of bulla development and ruptured bullae were investigated based on computed tomography (CT) and intraoperative findings. Methods: The study enrolled 208 patients with SSP who underwent air leak control through video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)...

BACKGROUND: Patients with primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) usually complain of sudden-onset dyspnea and pleuritic chest pain. However, asymptomatic PSP has been incidentally detected on chest X-rays. In this study, we analyzed the incidence, characteristics, risk factors, and prognosis of asymptomatic PSP detected during regular medical check-ups in university students. METHODS: In this study, 101,709 chest X-rays were performed during medical check-ups for students at the University of Tokyo between April 2011 and March 2016...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the 12-lead surface electrocardiographic (ECG) findings in young male patients with left primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) estimated by the Collins equation. METHODS: From 2003 through 2008, 60 young male patients who had left PSP and 61 age-matched unaffected males were included for 12-lead ECG analyses. The PSP size was estimated by the Collins equation. Those with left PSP were divided into two groups: 1) large PSP ≥30% (n=37), and 2) small PSP <30% (n=23)...
