PMID:  21420777     Owner:  NLM     Status:  Publisher    
The persistent air leak due to alveolopleural fistula is not an uncommon complication of pneumothorax, particularly secondary ones. Endobronchial valves initially designed for lung volume reduction are the latest tool in the therapeutic armamentarium. We present a patient with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with a persistent air leak in spite of three pleurodesis that could be resolved by two IBV™ valves.
