Abstract

The incidence of complications following thoracoscopy is approximately 10%, the most prevalent being prolonged air leak and chest pain. We report two cases of lung herniation through the chest wall defect created by thoracoscopy. Use of the Valsalva maneuver during CT scanning is recommended as a diagnostic imaging method in cases with suspected lung herniation.
