Nov 20, 2023


Welcome to Neumark Surgery, where we specialize in providing exceptional medical care in the fields of Doctors, Medical Centers, and Plastic Surgeons. Our experienced team is here to address a wide range of health concerns, including small pneumothorax treatment. In this article, we will delve into the details of what small pneumothorax is and discuss the effective treatment options available at Neumark Surgery.

Understanding Small Pneumothorax

A small pneumothorax refers to the accumulation of air in the pleural space, which is the area between the lungs and the chest wall. This condition can occur due to various reasons, such as trauma, lung diseases, or even spontaneously without any identifiable cause. It can lead to symptoms like chest pain, shortness of breath, and difficulty in breathing.

Treatment Options

1. Observation and Monitoring

In some cases, a small pneumothorax may not require immediate intervention. Our expert doctors will assess the severity of the condition and monitor its progress through regular check-ups and imaging tests, such as chest X-rays. This approach allows us to ensure that the pneumothorax resolves on its own without further intervention.

2. Chest Tube Placement

If the pneumothorax continues to worsen or causes distressing symptoms, our skilled medical professionals may recommend chest tube placement. During this procedure, a thin tube is inserted into the pleural space to remove the excess air, allowing the lung to re-expand. This minimally invasive technique is performed under local anesthesia and provides quick relief to the patient.

3. Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS)

In certain cases, where the small pneumothorax persists or recurs, our experienced plastic surgeons may suggest Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS). This advanced surgical procedure involves making small incisions in the chest wall to access the pleural space. Using a camera and specialized instruments, the surgeon can repair any air leaks and prevent future occurrences of the pneumothorax.
