Abstract

Spontaneous contralateral pneumothorax after pneumonectomy is a rare condition. Management can be quite challenging, as surgical intervention other than tube thoracostomy poses significant risks. We report a case of spontaneous pneumothorax that did not resolve with conventional management, necessitating thoracoscopic bleb resection with the use of cardiopulmonary bypass.
