<Conclusions>
Pathology demonstrated that radiofrequency cautery successfully make the bulla wall thickened and degenerated without damaging the lung parenchyma deeper than 2mm from the pleural surface.
Radiofrequency cautery is a safe,and possibly promising device for low-thermal coagulation of pulmonary bullae in pneumothorax surgery.Especially,general radiofrequency cautery device such as Surgitron Pelleve is easy to introduce to the pneumothorax surgery in combination with general ball-shaped electrode,because the cost is relatively low(as approximately less than a half as VIO)and for its safety.Accumulation of the cases is awaited to report its detailed and the long-term results.
