PURPOSE: Non-intubated thoracoscopic surgery is accomplished by patient-drived active single lung ventilation. This is performed under sedation without endotracheal intubation. Conventional thoracoscopic surgery is performed under general anesthesia with double lumen endotracheal tube. This is drived by mechanical ventilator resulting passive single lung ventilation. Thoracoscopic bleb resection is a short and simple procedure to prevent recurrent pneumothorax. In this study, we compared the perioperative pain and safety of non-intubated thorascoscopic surgery and conventional thoracoscopic surgery in thorascopic bleb resection.
