Management of spontaneous pneumothorax: British Thoracic Society pleural disease guideline 2010

The term ‘pneumothorax’ was first coined by Itard and then Laennec in 1803 and 1819 respectively,1 and refers to air in the pleural cavity (ie, interspersed between the lung and the chest wall). At that time, most cases of pneumothorax were secondary to tuberculosis, although some were recognised as occurring in otherwise healthy patients (‘pneumothorax simple’). This classification has endured subsequently, with the first modern description of pneumothorax occurring in healthy people (primary spontaneous pneumothorax, PSP) being that of Kjærgaard2 in 1932. It is a significant global health problem, with a reported incidence of 18–28/100 000 cases per annum for men and 1.2–6/100 000 for women.3

Value of cardiac biomarkers in patients with acute pulmonary embolism

Prognostic stratification of patients with PE is important in management and potentially improve clinical outcome. Cardiac biomarkers are used as an adjunct to clinical and echocardiographic risk stratification in a variety of circumstances, (Creatine-kinase-MB “CK-MB”) and cardiac troponin I (cTnI) are most widely used because of their high sensitivities, and very high specificity of troponin for heart muscle injury. Evidence is mounting that myoglobin’s sensitivity for myocardial necrosis combined with its unique release and clearance properties may render it particularly attractive as a risk marker either alone or in combination with other markers.
