Surgical treatment of spontaneous pneumo thorax by parietal pleurectomy long term results with special reference to pulmonary function studies

, : Surgical treatment of spontaneous pneumo thorax by parietal pleurectomy long term results with special reference to pulmonary function studies. Scandinavian Journal of Thoracic & Cardiovascular Surgery 16(1): 75-80

A series of 125 patients with recurrent or persistent spontaneous pneumothorax were treated at the Retional Cardiothoracic Center, North Middlesex Hospital, London [England, UK] between 1972-1978. These patients received surgical treatment by parietal pleurectomy with no significant complications. The 2-8 yr follow-up has shown no recurrence. Postoperative pulmonary function tests proved that there is no significant impairment of the mechanical efficiency of respiration. This series indicates that pleurectomy is a safe and reliable procedure and gives excellent results.
