iatrogenic pneumothorax injury lawsuits

A pneumothorax is a type of lung injury that allows air to leak into the area between the lungs and the chest wall, which causes mild to severe chest pain and shortness of breath. An Iatrogenic Pneumothorax is one which was caused by medical treatment, often as an incidental event during a procedure such as a pacemaker insertion. Most cases of iatrogenic pneumothorax are not serious and do not require any treatment.  It is our goal to improve our patient outcomes and minimize the number of patients who experience iatrogenic pneumothorax. While some cases do not require any treatment, a pneumothorax can lead to serious complications. Because these events are relatively rare, a small number of cases can affect the rate substantially.  A lower rate may indicate that a hospital provides a higher level of patient care. If you, or a loved one, has suffered an Iatrogenic Pneumothorax you may be able to recover benefits, damages and financial losses.

Iatrogenic Pneumothorax & Tuberculosis

An iatrogenic pneumothorax is a traumatic pneumothorax resulting from injury to the pleura, with air introduced into the pleural space secondary to diagnostic or therapeutic medical intervention. Fifty years ago, iatrogenic pneumothorax’s were typically the result of deliberate injection of air into the pleural space for the treatment of tuberculosis (TB). The terminology evolved to the preference for “induced” or “artificial” pneumothorax to indicate pulmonary TB treatment, before arriving at the current classification. Pulmonary TB remains a significant cause of secondary pneumothorax.
