Abstract
Despite correct chest tube drainage, 2 patients had persistent pneumothorax after blunt chest trauma and were referred for further treatment. Videothoracoscopy revealed small lung lacerations caused by rib fragments. A small wedge resection performed via thoracoscopy by the use of an endostapler resulted in immediate and permanent relief of air leakage.
