Objective:To compare the efficacy and safety between apical pleurectomy and pleural abrasion with minocycline in primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) with high recurrence risk. Background:The optimal thoracoscopic pleurodesis procedure for PSP with high recurrence risk remains controversial. Methods:Between January 2006 and May 2009, a total of 369 patients with spontaneous pneumothorax were treated by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. After stapled bullectomy, 160 patients with no… Expand
