Abstract

Authors present their experience of surgical correction with stapler of giant bullae and coverage with a pleural tent after mobilization from the cupula, in order to reduce air leaking and intracavitary complications. 14 patients have successfully undergone this kind of surgery from 1988 to 2003, with a total number of 16 surgical procedures, as 2 patients had bilateral bullae. Such procedures had good clinical and functional results compared to predictive pre-operative standards, and all drainage tubes have been removed by the 7th day.
