Videothoracoscopic pleurodesis with autoblood infusion in patients during surgery of bullous pulmonary emphysema complicated by spontaneous pneumothorax
The reason of big relapse rate of pneumothorax in patients with disseminated bullous emphysema is the lack of efficiency of existing methods of laparoscopic pleurodesis. We elaborated a new method of pleurodesis with autoblood infusion, which allows more effective obliteration of the pleural space and the better clinical effect.
