The relation between smoking habits and the occurrence of spontaneous pneumothorax (SP) was studied in a Swedish population, predominantly urban. The study group consisted of a consecutive series of 138 patients admitted to Huddinge University Hospital over ten years for treatment of their first spontaneous pneumothorax. Their smoking habits were routinely analyzed. The sample consisted of 15,204 persons domiciled in the same circumscribed area (County of Stockholm). The annual incidence of… Expand
The impact of spontaneous pneumothorax, and its treatment, on the smoking behaviour of young adult smokers.
TLDR
Whether smoking behaviour of patients is influenced by the ISP (re-) event, and its treatment, is analyzed to find out whether smoking cessation and reduction percentage related to ISP events, andIts treatment, were the outcome measurements. Expand

TLDR
Combined smoking of tobacco and cannabis significantly aggravates the risk of having a primary spontaneous pneumothorax in young men compared to both never smokers and daily smokers. Expand
The impact of smoking in primary spontaneous pneumothorax.
TLDR
Cigarette smoking is associated with the pathophysiologic consequences of extensive respiratory bronchiolitis, which had a significant impact on the recurrence rates of primary spontaneous pneumothorax. Expand
Correlation of Primary Spontaneous Pneumothorax and Air Pollution in Adolescents
TLDR
The case-crossover design showed that PSP in adolescents is unlikely to be related to air pollution, and the results were consistent across all city subgroups. Expand
Epidemiology of spontaneous pneumothorax: gender-related differences
TLDR
Sex and age are determinant factors in the course of spontaneous pneumothorax and surgery and rehospitalisation were more frequent in women than in men in France from 2008 to 2011. Expand
Emphysema and secondary pneumothorax in young adults smoking cannabis.
TLDR
In case of emphysema in young individuals, marijuana abuse has to be considered in the differential diagnosis, as the period of marijuana smoking seems to play an important role in the development of lung empysema. Expand
Risk Factors of Spontaneous Pneumothorax in Kuwait
TLDR
The data indicate that the most important risk factors of spontaneous pneumothorax in Kuwait are smoking, low BMI and the male gender. Expand
Recurrence of primary spontaneous pneumothorax.
TLDR
Analysis of several potential risk factors revealed that recurrence was not related to the BMI of the patient, the initial treatment of the pneumothorax, nor to its size, but was more common in taller men and in women. Expand
The clinical effect of smoking and environmental factors in spontaneous pneumothorax: a case-crossover study in an Inland province
TLDR
The triggering factors for spontaneous pneumothorax were relative humidity, carbon monoxide, and air pressure, and the effect of the trigger was prominent in patients who were younger, non- or ex-smokers, and male. Expand
Secondary spontaneous pneumothorax and bullous lung disease in cannabis and tobacco smokers: A case-control study
TLDR
Cannabis smoking seems to increase the risk of suffering from respiratory complaints and can have detrimental effects on lung parenchyma, in a dose-dependent manner. Expand

Physical constitution and smoking habits of patients with idiopathic spontaneous pneumothorax.
TLDR
The Kaup index of idiopathic pneumothorax patients was lower than that of healthy subjects, while the level of tobacco consumption of the former was higher. Expand
Influence of height on the risk of spontaneous pneumothorax.
The risk of primary spontaneous pneumothorax was found to be greatest among persons 25 to 34 years old of each sex and greater for men than women, although a gradient of risk with increasing heightExpand
Incidence of spontaneous pneumothorax in Olmsted County, Minnesota: 1950 to 1974.
TLDR
Between 1950 and 1974, 318 cases of initial pneumothorax were diagnosed among the residents of Olmsted County, Minn, and one hundred forty-one cases were spontaneous in onset, of which 77 were primary and 64 secondary to a specific underlying pulmonary disease. Expand

TLDR
The pleural effusion was eosinophilic in all cases where a differential white cell count was performed on the pleural fluid, and Dyspnœa is the cardinal symptom, with chest pain and cough next in importance. Expand

TLDR

TLDR
Ventilation was impaired and perfusion decreased in the apical region of the lungs, also the most common location of spontaneous pneumothorax, consistent with the presence of regional airway obstruction. Expand

TLDR
Comparison of the air and He-O2 data suggested that girls may tend to dilate preferentially their larger airways with a maximal inspiration, whereas boys may generally be unable to do this. Expand
