Abstract

Single Incision Laparoscopic Surgery (SILS) has recently been used by general surgeons to perform cholecystectomies and pre-peritoneal hernia repairs with mesh using minimally invasive surgery, thus decreasing post-operative pain and a more cosmetic result of the surgery being obtained. We describe the first cases of video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) in spontaneous pneumothorax using the SILS system. There are no previous reports on the use of the SILS system in VATS for spontaneous pneumothorax. This system also allows us to obtain a more cosmetic surgical result, as well as decreasing the mean post-operative hospital stay and the need for analgesics to improve the post-operative pain.

Keywords:
Spontaneous pneumothorax
Bullectomy
Single port thorascopy
SILS
Resumen

La single incision laparoscopic surgery (SILS, ‘cirugía laparoscópica a través de incisión única’) ha sido recientemente utilizada por cirujanos generales para realizar colecistectomías y reparación de hernias preperitoneales con malla mediante cirugía de mínima invasión disminuyendo así el dolor postoperatorio y obteniéndose un resultado más cosmético de la cirugía. Describimos los primeros casos de cirugía torácica videoasistida en neumotórax espontáneos utilizando el sistema SILS. No hay reportes previos del uso del SILS en cirugía torácica videoasistida para el neumotórax espontáneo. Este sistema, además de permitirnos obtener un resultado quirúrgico más cosmético, también disminuye la estancia media postoperatoria y la necesidad de analgésicos a fin de reducir el dolor postoperatorio.
