Understanding Spontaneous Pneumothorax

Spontaneous pneumothorax is a medical condition characterized by the sudden collapse of a lung, typically without any external injury or trauma. This condition can cause severe breathing difficulties and requires immediate medical attention. Our doctors are specialized in diagnosing and treating spontaneous pneumothorax, ensuring the best outcomes for our patients.

Surgical Treatment Options

When it comes to treating spontaneous pneumothorax, surgery is often the most effective solution. Our skilled surgeons perform various surgical procedures, including:

1. Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS)

VATS is a minimally invasive surgical technique that allows our surgeons to access the collapsed lung through small incisions. This procedure is performed using a thoracoscope, a thin tube with a camera at the end, which provides a clear view of the surgical area. VATS offers numerous advantages, such as reduced scarring, shorter recovery time, and less post-operative pain.

2. Pleurodesis

Pleurodesis is a surgical procedure commonly used to prevent recurrent pneumothorax. During this procedure, our surgeons create an inflammatory response within the pleural cavity, the space between the lung and chest wall. This response causes the pleural layers to adhere, preventing the accumulation of air and reducing the chances of future lung collapse. Neumark Surgery has a high success rate in performing pleurodesis, providing patients with long-term relief.

3. Thoracotomy

In more severe cases of spontaneous pneumothorax, traditional open surgery called thoracotomy may be required. Our experienced surgeons make an incision between the ribs to access the affected lung and remove any blebs or cysts contributing to the lung's collapse.
