INTRODUCTION: Cannabis consumption is common among adolescents and young adults in France. In addition to its neurological effect, cannabis smoking can induce severe pulmonary emphysema, even in young patients. When a spontaneous pneumothorax occurs in a cannabis smoker, the possibility of a secondary spontaneous pneumothorax should be considered. This may be of importance as management of secondary spontaneous pneumothorax may differ from the well-codified handling of primary spontaneous pneumothorax...

BACKGROUND:  Autologous blood-patch pleurodesis has been effectively utilized as a treatment option for the condition of secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (SSP). Moreover, it can be used with persistent air leak, with or without residual air space. However, there have been no robust reports for the optimal timing for autologous blood-patch pleurodesis. The aim of this study is to compare early autologous blood-patch pleurodesis with conservative management of SSP. METHODS:  We conducted a randomized controlled study at the Menoufia University Hospital...

INTRODUCTION: Endobronchial one-way valves have been proposed as treatment for persistent air leak complicating spontaneous pneumothorax in which surgical intervention is not feasible. However, published data on efficacy, safety, and factors associated with success are scanty. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of 37 patients at a general hospital from 2008 to 2016. The impact of endobronchial valve implantation on the time to air-leak cessation after bronchoscopy was evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) remains a significant global health problem. Despite general agreement, an official algorithm for the management of PSP still does not exist. OBJECTIVES: Evaluating the efficacy of all available treatments in PSP. METHODS: A systematic search of 12 electronic databases was performed to identify all randomized controlled trials (RCTs) of any treatments in PSP. The primary endpoint was recurrence incidence; secondary were an immediate success, complication and hospitalization days...

Persistent air leaks (PALs) are associated with increased morbidity, prolonged hospital stay, and increased treatment costs. Endobronchial 1-way valves have been recently used as a potential less invasive treatment option. We sought to investigate the effects of valve therapy in treating this condition. The patients with evidence of continuous air leak flow whose chest tubes remained in place for more than 7 days were treated with bronchoscopic closure using 1-way valves. The source of the air leak was identified by the Chartis system...

BACKGROUND: Few studies have focused on the management of secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (SSP) as a complication of pneumoconiosis. The aim of this study was to investigate the clinical features and therapeutic course of SSP associated with silicosis. METHODS: Between April 2005 and March 2015, 17 patients with silicosis underwent chest tube drainage for SSP in our institution. We retrospectively analyzed patient characteristics, type of treatment, clinical course, rate of recurrence, and survival time, and compared them with those of 30 patients diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) during the same period...

OBJECTIVES: Primary spontaneous pneumothorax frequently recurs after chest tube management. Evidence is lacking whether patients may benefit from surgery following their first episode. METHODS: We performed a multicentre, randomized trial and enrolled young, otherwise healthy patients admitted with their first episode of primary spontaneous pneumothorax and treated using conventional chest tube drainage. Patients underwent high-resolution computed tomography on fully expanded lungs, and using web-based randomization, we assigned patients to continued conservative chest tube treatment or chest tube treatment followed by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) with the resection of bullae/blebs and mechanical pleurodesis...

INTRODUCTION: Spontaneous pneumothorax (SP) is a frequent complication of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) and a severe form of the disease. In spite of the fact that TB is a common cause of pneumothorax, a very few series, have been reported. METHODS: We retrospectively analysed the experience of SP secondary to TB in patients who were hospitalized in our department between 2005 and 2015. RESULTS: The mean age of patients was 38,5±19 years. Two patients had a history of pulmonary tuberculosis...

Spontaneous pneumothorax is a very common medical emergency. Patients are often treated without treating the underlying cause. Lymphangioleiomyomatosis (LAM) is a rare cystic lung disease. Until recently, diagnosis of LAM was a challenge with nearly 100% mortality in 10 years, but better understanding of the disease through research and better radiological techniques and newer drugs such as sirolimus has improved the survival in such patients. We are presenting a rare case of LAM presenting as a secondary spontaneous pneumothorax treated with sirolimus...

BACKGROUND: The optimal initial treatment approach for pneumothorax remains controversial. This systemic review and meta-analysis investigated the effectiveness of small-bore pigtail catheter (PC) drainage compared with that of large-bore chest tube (LBCT) drainage as the initial treatment approach for all subtypes of pneumothorax. METHODS: PubMed and Embase were systematically searched for observational studies and randomized controlled trials published up to October 9, 2017, that compared PC and LBCT as the initial treatment for pneumothorax...

Secondary spontaneous pneumothorax almost always develops secondary to an underlying lung disease. A pneumothorax secondary to a malignancy is very rare, and is observed most frequently in soft tissue sarcomas. Pazopanib, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, is used in metastatic soft tissue sarcomas treatment. The rate of pneumothorax that is caused by pazopanib is about 14% in the literature. The patient being presented in this article underwent surgery for soft tissue sarcoma, postoperatively received pazopanib (Votrient® 400 mg, oral, Glaxo Group Ltd, Brentford, UK) treatment due to widespread bilateral lung metastases, and developed synchronous spontaneous pneumothorax...

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...

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...

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)...

The purpose of this article is to report a case of hemoptysis occurring in combination with secondary spontaneous pneumothorax following chemical pleurodesis by talc. A Japanese male with cancer of renal pelvis was found with the left pneumothorax and multiple lung metastases. A computed-tomography scan revealed severe emphysema throughout the lungs. Talc pleurodesis was employed to arrest air leakage. The patient developed hemoptysis 45 minutes after talc injection into the thorax. This is the first report of hemoptysis following talc pleurodesis...

PURPOSE: Secondary spontaneous pneumothorax (SSP) is difficult to treat by itself and due to its association with serious underlying diseases. It has a high rate of recurrence and often requires extended hospitalization. Therefore, we evaluated the outcome and risk factors associated with recurrence and extended hospitalization. METHODS: We retrospectively examined 61 patients with SSP, and evaluated the patients' characteristics, underlying diseases, introduction of home oxygen therapy, Brinkman index, and X-ray imaging findings to determine the risk factors for recurrence and extended hospitalization...
