STUDY OBJECTIVE: Thoracic endometriosis syndrome (TES), characterized mainly by catamenial pneumothorax, represents a relevant condition in patients affected by endometriosis. However, few studies have analyzed this condition under the gynecological point of view, in terms of characteristic of endometriosis and fertility status of affected women. In our study, we evaluate the association between catamenial pneumothorax, pelvic endometriosis and the fertility status of the patients. DESIGN: Retrospective study of 16 patients treated for catamenial pneumothorax between January 2001 and January 2014 at the Thoracic Surgery Department of San Raffaele Scientific Institute...

Pneumothorax associated with thoracic endometriosis (TE) generally occurs in women around 30 years old and it usually affects the right pleural cavity. We herein report two cases of TE associated with left-sided pneumothorax in young women. The prevalence of TE in younger patients may be underestimated if these cases are treated as spontaneous pneumothorax. Pneumothorax occurring in younger patients has not been reported to show laterality. TE-related or catamenial pneumothorax in young women must therefore represent a different clinical entity from the condition seen in older patients...

Catamenial pneumothorax (CP) is a rare and complex clinical condition caused by endometrial tissues, commonly found in reproductive women (age 15-49 years).Its diagnosis is often delayed or overlooked by clinicians, which may result in recurrent hospitalizations and other complications. A case of Catamenial pneumothorax is presented of a 38-year-old young married woman, admitted to hospital with signs and symptoms including chest pain and shortness of breath that started with her menstrual period. Right pneumothorax was observed in the Chest x-ray...

BACKGROUND: Asymptomatic diaphragmatic hernia is generally thought to be rare among adults. We present two different types of asymptomatic diaphragmatic hernia diagnosed with computed tomography (CT) and discuss treatment strategies. CASE PRESENTATION: Case 1: A 37-year-old woman was diagnosed with catamenial pneumothorax in the right diaphragm. Partial resection of the diaphragm and lung was performed using a linear stapler. She was asymptomatic after the operation and gave birth 2 years later...

Catamenial pneumothorax should be defined as recurrent accumulation of air in the pleural cavity in reproductive-age women without concomitant respiratory diseases. The sine qua non criterion is the occurrence of the pneumothorax in the period of 72 hours before or after the menses. Additional criteria include characteristic pleural lesions, right-sided occurrence, and coexistence of endometriosis. There are no radiological or pathological conditions allowing an exact confirmation of catamenial pneumothorax...

Catamenial pneumothorax (CP) is generally caused by intraperitoneal air leaking from the uterus into the thoracic cavity via a defect in the endometrial tissue of the diaphragm and is usually detected in the right thorax. We report a case of left-sided CP caused by endometriosis in the visceral pleura and with no abnormal findings in the diaphragm. A 33-year-old female patient presented at the end of a course of low-dose contraceptive pills for pelvic endometriosis, with spontaneous pneumothorax in the left chest...

BACKGROUND: Primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) is treated on the basis of studies that have predominantly consisted of tall male subjects. Here, we determined recurrence of PSP in average-statured menstruating women and studied prevalence of catamenial pneumothorax (CP) in this population. METHODS: Men and menstruating women, aged 18 to 55 years, without underlying lung disease or substance abuse were retrospectively studied between 2009 and 2015. A chest pathologist reviewed all specimens for thoracic endometriosis...

Background. Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery is the surgical procedure of choice for spontaneous pneumothorax due to its noninvasiveness and convenience. A higher recurrence rate with thoracoscopic bullectomy (TB) than that after traditional thoracotomy (TT) led us to adopt thoracoscopic double-loop ligation (TLL) as our standard procedure in 1998. This study compares the effectiveness and safety of these 3 operative procedures. Methods. Patients who underwent their first surgery for spontaneous pneumothorax at our hospital between January 1994 and December 2010 were included...

Thoracic endometriosis syndrome is a rare disorder characterised by the presence of functioning endometrial tissue in pleura, lung parenchyma, airways, and/or encompasses mainly four clinical entities-catamenial pneumothorax, catamenial haemothorax, catamenial haemoptysis and lung nodules. The cases were studied retrospectively by reviewing the records at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, for duration of five years i.e., form March 2010-2014 and analysed for the clinical presentation and management of thoracic endometriosis syndrome...

BACKGROUND: Our recent clinical observations put into question the routine hormonal therapy for pneumothorax recurrence prevention, in patients operated for catamenial pneumothorax (CP). METHODS: Retrospective review of the treatment of four women operated for CP in a recent 32-months period. RESULTS: The four presented patients with CP represent 4.8 % of the overall number of patients operated for spontaneous pneumothorax and 19 % of women operated for pneumothorax in the same period...

The Spanish congress of the European association of pulmonologists and thoracic surgeons, held in 2009, confirmed the international classification of spontaneous pneumothorax in which catamenial (menstrual) pneumothorax was identified. Different from usual pneumothorax, its reason is not because of bleb disease in the lungs, but rather, caused by menstrual cycle in women. The cause was partly studied and explained by several theories. By the first of them, congenital defects (holes, fenestrations) in the diaphragm allow air to get into pleural space because of increased permeability of the fallopian tubes during menstruation...

Pulmonary endometriosis is a gynecological disorder in which endometrial tissue grows outside of the uterine cavity. Usually, the ectopic implants are located in the pelvis and manifest as dysmenorrhea, chronic pelvic pain, or infertility. Pulmonary endometriosis sometimes occurs in the pleurae and can result in catamenial pneumothorax; however, true pulmonary endometriosis, tissue growing in the lung itself, is rare. We report a 22-year-old patient with pulmonary endometriosis and catamenial hemoptysis. Pulmonary endometriosis was proved histologically and treated successfully by wedge resection using video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: A major pathogenic factor for catamenial pneumothorax is thoracic endometriosis. However, thoracic endometriosis-related pneumothorax (TERP) can develop as either catamenial or non-catamenial pneumothorax (CP). Therefore, the aim of this study was to elucidate the clinical differences between catamenial and non-catamenial TERP. METHODS: The clinical and pathological data in female patients who underwent video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery at the Pneumothorax Research Center during an 8-year period were retrospectively reviewed...

Thoracic endometriosis (TE) is an uncommon disorder affecting women of childbearing age. We herein report clinical and thin-section computed tomography (CT) findings of two cases, in which one woman presented with catamenial haemoptysis (CH) alone and another woman presented with bilateral catamenial pneumothoraces (CP) coinciding with CH, a rare manifestation of TE. The dynamic changes demonstrated on thin-section chest CT performed during and after menses led to accurate localisation and presumptive diagnosis of TE in both patients...

A 44-year-old non-smoking woman presented with recurrent right spontaneous pneumothorax 9 years after a right-side surgical pleurodesis via a video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) approach for suspected primary pneumothorax in another center. Histological examination of tissue excised during the earlier operation confirmed catamenial pneumothorax, but no further treatment was given. During the 9 years since, she had had persistent right lower chest pain and chest X-ray (CXR) had shown a "persistently elevated right diaphragm", but these had been treated as iatrogenic neuropathic pain and phrenic nerve palsy respectively...

BACKGROUND: Catamenial pneumothorax (CP) is a type of spontaneous pneumothorax due to thoracic endometriosis occurring in reproductive women, and usually involves the right side of the thorax showing diaphragm lesions. For the present study, we defined juvenile CP (JCP) as patients with CP who were 19 years old and younger. Institutional findings and a systematic literature review are presented. METHODS: We retrospectively enrolled all patients with CP treated at our institutions from January 2002 to June 2013...
