BACKGROUND The natural history of traumatic hemothorax (HTX) remains unclear. We aimed to describe outcomes of HTX following tube thoracostomy drainage and to delineate factors that predict progression to a retained hemothorax (RH). We hypothesized that initial large-volume HTX predicts the development of an RH. METHODS We conducted a prospective, observational, multi-institutional study of adult trauma patients diagnosed with an HTX identified on computed tomography (CT) scan with volumes calculated at time of diagnosis. All patients were managed with tube thoracostomy drainage within 24 hours of presentation. Retain...

Tube thoracostomy is an important treatment for traumatic hemothorax and pneumothorax. The optimal tube diameter remains unclear. To reduce invasiveness, we use small-bore chest tubes ( ≤20 Fr) for all trauma patients for whom tube thoracostomy is indicated in our emergency department (ED). The aim of this study was to investigate the effectiveness and safety of small-bore tube thoracostomy for traumatic hemothorax or pneumothorax.

We report a case of 58-year-old male treated by EMS following a motorcycle accident with left-sided chest pain, hypoxia, hypotension, and clinical findings of tension pneumothorax. Needle decompression with colorimetric capnography using the device indicated decompression of his tension pneumothorax, with appropriate temporizing success.

Abstract BACKGROUND: The diagnosis of peripheral pulmonary lesions (PPL) continues to present clinical challenges. Despite extensive experience with guided bronchoscopy, the diagnostic yield has not significantly improved. Robotic assisted bronchoscopic platforms have been developed to potentially improve the diagnostic yield for PPL. Presently, limited data exists evaluating the performance of robotic systems in live human subjects. RESEARCH QUESTION: What is the safety and feasibility of robotic assisted bronchoscopy in patients with peripheral pulmonary lesions? STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: This was a pr...
