    Angiosarcoma, the most common primary malignant neoplasm of the heart in adults, usually presents as pericardial effusion or right-sided heart failure. Rupture of an angiosarcoma-infiltrated cardiac chamber as a cause of hemothorax is very rare in the literature. In this report, we describe a...

    Spontaneous pneumothorax is usually caused by the rupture of subpleural blebs/bullae in the underlying lung and is one of the most common elective applications of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). VATS has been used as an alternative to thoracotomy in the treatment of spontaneous...

    Pneumothorax is defined as the presence of air in the pleural cavity. It usually occurs secondary to multiple pulmonary predisposing diseases and represents one of the most frequent forms of thoracic disease. On the other hand, primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP), defined as a non-underlying...

    Spontaneous Pneumothorax (SP) is usually attributed to the rupture of the sub-pleural blebs or bullae. Spontaneous pneumothorax is rarely seen in association with lung cancer. Pneumothorax can be the first sign of lung cancer. The most common possibility for SP complicating lung cancer is the...
