Pneumothorax (PTX) is the most common complication associated with percutaneous needle aspiration (PNA) of the lung. Age, sex, cooperation, and lesion size, location, and depth, as well as needle size, number of passes, and radiographic calculation of total lung capacity all have been implicated in influencing the rate of PTX. Pulmonary function testing to assess PTX risk in PNA has not been previously examined. We retrospectively reviewed 159 patients undergoing PNA who had preprocedure… CONTINUE READING
