Usually, therefore, when the patient has marked subcutaneous emphysema and no pneumothorax, one will not approach the unidentified "air pocket of origin" surgically, unless major airway injury is suspected and identified at bronchoscopy. ) 40 41 Major Traumatic Tracheobronchial Air Leak The initial treatment of a critically-injured patient with major air leak is often non-operative, using one or more closed thoracostomies to decompress any intrapleural air pockets. Often enough, a lacerated trachea or bronchus will not be recognized until bronchoscopic evaluation is carried out later, to evaluate persistent massive air leak, or prolonged collapse of a lung or lobe, or partial airway obstruction.
Eventually, after many non-contributory studies, a right thoracotomy was carried out (through fused pleurae) for wedge resection of large, crepitant, apical blebs that showed interstitial emphysema on microscopical examination. The operation relieved her of such episodes for many months. The "pneumomammae attacks" subsequently resumed, however, associated with (and attributed by me to) a total inability to discontinue heavy smoking, and finally right upper lobectomy was recommended. The patient rather wisely declined further surgery and her attacks gradually decreased in frequency and severity.
One must remember that skin markers can move relative to the bony thorax during position change, especially in elderly or obese women. If fluid is free within the pleural cavity, the diaphragm level can often be estimated by tilting the patient away from the side to be aspirated, then percussing for diaphragm (actually sub-diaphragmatic visceral) dullness. It is usually simplest to penetrate any hemithorax laterally (unless fluid is loculated elsewhere), as less muscle is thereby traversed, and mediastinal structures remain well away from the exploring needle.
