Video-assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) Versus Axillary Mini-thoracotomy for the Treatment of Recurrent Spontaneous Pneumothorax
A Prospective Randomized Study of a Modified Two-port Thoracoscopic Technique Versus Axillary Minithoracotomy for the Treatment of Recurrent Spontaneous Pneumothorax.

The investigators conducted a prospective randomized study to compare axillary minithoracotomy versus a modified two-port thoracoscopic technique for surgical pleurodesis in patients with recurrent spontaneous pneumothorax operated in a single institution.

The main objective of the study was to investigate possible differences regarding short- and long-term clinical outcome between the two different techniques.
