Patient records were reviewed for variables, including patient age, sex, body mass index (BMI), smoking history, comorbidities, presenting complaints, localization and extent of pneumothorax
, treatment method, surgical indications, relapse, morbidity and mortality rates and duration of hospitalization.
occupying the right hemithorax (white arrow) is evident, and a slight mediastinal shift towards the left suggests a tension pneumothorax
The rate of complications was 7-28% for pneumothorax
Literature concerning the interest of HFJV in the management of patients with pneumothorax
Patients were evaluated for the following: (1) baseline characteristics (gestational age, gender, maternal age, birth weight, Apgar score, and pneumothorax
type), (2) predisposing factors of NP (steroids use, bag mask ventilation, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), mechanical ventilation, hypoplastic lung disease, and MAS), (3) accompanying disorders (premature rupture of membrane (PROM), intraventricular hemorrhage (IVH), patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), pulmonary hemorrhage, and necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC)), (4) treatment of NP (intervention, ventilation mode, oxygen duration, and length of hospital stay), and (5) outcomes (survived, died).
In 2001, the American College of Chest Physicians Consensus Conference stated that thoracoscopy paired with mechanical pleural abrasion represents the preferred approach to prevent Primary Spontaneous Pneumothorax
(PSP) recurrence despite the British Thoracic Society's guidelines.
Primary spontaneous pneumothorax
results from rupture of sub pleural emphysematous blebs that are usually located in the apices of the lung.
Extremely uncommon complications consequential to gas insufflation are pneumothorax
with a reported incidence of 0.

(CP) also known as spontaneous pneumothorax
; is a lung condition which occurs in conjunction to the menstrual period.
The telltale sign of a pneumothorax
is a white visceral pleural interface.
The major hypothesis regarding the pathogenesis of PCP-related pneumothorax
focuses on tissue necrosis produced by the pathogen.
