Spontaneous Pneumothorax Surgery at Neumark Surgery

Oct 31, 2023

Understanding Spontaneous Pneumothorax

Spontaneous pneumothorax is a condition characterized by the sudden collapse of the lung in the absence of any trauma or injury. It occurs due to the presence of a small, air-filled blister called a bleb that ruptures, causing air to escape into the pleural space surrounding the lung. This can lead to difficulty in breathing and chest pain, requiring immediate medical attention.

Skilled Plastic Surgeons

In cases where surgical intervention is required, our team of highly skilled plastic surgeons specializes in performing minimally invasive procedures for spontaneous pneumothorax. These procedures, such as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), allow for smaller incisions, reduced scarring, and faster recovery times.

Treatment Options for Spontaneous Pneumothorax

The treatment approach for spontaneous pneumothorax depends on the severity of the condition and the patient's overall health. At Neumark Surgery, we offer the following treatment options:

Observation and Bed Rest

In cases of mild spontaneous pneumothorax, where the lung collapse is minimal, our doctors may recommend a period of observation and bed rest. During this time, the patient's condition is closely monitored, and the lung is given an opportunity to heal naturally.

Chest Tube Insertion

For moderate cases of spontaneous pneumothorax, our doctors may insert a chest tube to remove the trapped air and allow the lung to re-inflate. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia and requires a short hospital stay for monitoring and recovery.

Spontaneous Pneumothorax Surgery

Severe or recurrent cases of spontaneous pneumothorax may require surgical intervention. During spontaneous pneumothorax surgery, our skilled plastic surgeons use minimally invasive techniques to access the pleural space and repair the ruptured blebs. This approach helps prevent future air leaks and reduces the risk of recurrence.

The decision for surgical intervention is made after a thorough evaluation of the patient's condition, taking into account factors such as frequency of pneumothorax episodes, lung function, and overall health.
