Understanding Recurrent Pneumothorax

Recurrent pneumothorax is a condition that affects the lungs, causing the air to accumulate in the pleural space, resulting in lung collapse. It is a distressing condition that can cause breathing difficulties, chest pain, and other uncomfortable symptoms.

At Neumark Surgery, our dedicated team specializes in providing effective treatment for recurrent pneumothorax. We believe in comprehensive and personalized care, tailoring our approach to meet the unique needs of each patient.

Treatment Options

Surgical Interventions

Neumark Surgery offers a range of surgical interventions for the treatment of recurrent pneumothorax. Our highly skilled doctors and plastic surgeons utilize the latest advancements in surgical techniques to ensure the best possible outcomes for our patients.

  • Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS): This minimally invasive procedure involves making small incisions and using a tiny camera to visualize and treat the affected area. VATS allows for quicker recovery times and minimal scarring.
  • Pleurodesis: This procedure involves the use of chemical or mechanical agents to create adhesions between the layers of the pleura. This prevents the recurrence of pneumothorax by eliminating the space where air can accumulate.
  • Lung Volume Reduction Surgery: In cases where the recurrent pneumothorax is due to underlying lung diseases, our expert surgeons may recommend lung volume reduction surgery. This procedure removes the damaged or diseased portions of the lungs to improve lung function and prevent future pneumothorax.

Non-Surgical Treatments

In some cases, non-surgical treatments may be considered for recurrent pneumothorax. These options may include:

  • Observation: For small, stable pneumothorax cases, close monitoring may be recommended to allow for spontaneous healing without intervention.
  • Oxygen Therapy: Oxygen therapy can help reduce the size of the pneumothorax and alleviate symptoms.
  • Chest Tube Drainage: In more severe cases, a chest tube may be inserted to remove the accumulated air and allow the lung to re-inflate.
