Abstract

In 1993 Emergency Medicine Australasia (then Emergency Medicine [Fremantle]) published a therapeutic review on the management of spontaneous pneumothorax. That review found a lack of high-quality evidence on which to base management decisions and a variety of therapeutic options without clear superiority one over another. Now, almost 15 years later, the present paper aims to revisit the evidence base to see if management choices are clearer.
