AbstractAbstract PDF
Postraumatic lung hernia is a rare occurrence. A number of cases reported in the literature have been treated with early thoracotomy to repair partial protruded lung and pleura to prevent strangulation and incarceration. We present a case of a 45-year-old patient of left posttrumatic lung hernia, in which closed digital reduction was successful. The strategy of the management approach could be established by further accumulated experience.
