Extract

Despite existing clinical practice guidelines,12 optimal management of primary spontaneous pneumothorax (PSP) remains controversial.35 Central to the controversy remain questions regarding what technique to use for PSP recurrence prevention, the role of CT, and in whom to provide recurrence prevention. Perhaps most controversial is whether blebs and bullae play a sole role in PSP development. Huang and colleagues6 add clarity to all of these issues in this issue of CHEST (see page 1146).
