Persitent pleural space must be considered a possible complication after lung resection surgical treatment. Although in most cases the evoloution is favourable, the Authors suggest the use of the "pleural tent" technique, that compared to others thoracoplasty procedures offers some advantages. A short historical review of the thoracoplasty techniques is presented toghether with a detailed description of the above mentioned technique.
