  • Unexpected Tension Pneumothorax-Hemothorax during Induction of General Anaesthesia. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Anesthesiol 2019; 2019:5017082Amaniti E, Provitsaki C, … Grosomanidis V
  • Tension pneumothorax during general anaesthesia is a rare but possibly deleterious event, especially where predisposing factors are absent or unknown, making diagnosis even challenging. We describe a case of a healthy middle-aged woman, who was planned to receive general anaesthesia for total thyroidectomy. After intubation, the patient experienced marked hypoxemia (SpO2=75%), hypotension, and ta…
  • [Indications and results of surgical resection of bubbles arising from pulmonary emphysema]. [Case Reports]
    Pan Afr Med J 2018; 31:48Ndiaye A, Nkomo DDB, … Ndiaye M
  • Surgical resection of bubbles or bullectomy is the gold standard in the treatment of bubbles arising from pulmonary emphysema. It is usually indicated for patients with complicated bubbles or when they are the underlying cause of disabling dyspnea. This study aims to determine the indications for bullectomy and to evaluate surgical outcomes in our Department. We conducted a retrospective, descrip…
  • Spontaneous pneumothorax in cocaine users. [Journal Article]
    QJM 2019; 112(7):519-522Ciriaco P, Rossetti F, … Negri G
  • CONCLUSIONS: Spontaneous pneumothorax in cocaine-inhaler subjects is a reality of which physicians need to be aware. Chest CT scan might not reveal abnormalities. Macroscopically the lung might presents bullae and/or peculiar visceral pleura. Foreign body granulomas observed in the specimens suggest that the particulate component of inhaled substances can injure the lung. Surgical treatment of the bullous disease and mechanical pleurodesis can provide a long-term follow-up without relapse of pneumothorax.
  • Giant bullous emphysema mistaken for traumatic pneumothorax. [Journal Article]
    Int J Surg Case Rep 2019; 56:50-54Ferreira Junior EG, Costa PA, … Loureiro BM
  • CONCLUSIONS: The clinical picture of a patient with GBE can be similar to that of pneumothorax, and GBE has been reported as being misdiagnosed as pneumothorax [4,5]. A CT scan can play an important role in differentiating these conditions [6], thus avoiding needle decompression, which can be catastrophic [6].Giant bullous emphysema can represent a pitfall in trauma assessment. We recommend that in cases where pneumothorax is suspected, if the patient is clinically stable, imaging studies should be performed prior to chest tube placement.
