The first section discusses in considerable detail the modes of resorption of the pneumothorax and the mechanisms of reexpansion. The relationship of the exudative phenomena to pneumothorax is considered in fine detail. The factors that influence reexpansion both favorably and unfavorably are logically analyzed. In the next chapter the mechanical sequelae of reexpansion are discussed. The various types of thoracic retraction and scoliosis are discussed and the underlying etiologic factors analyzed. The displacements of the trachea, esophagus, heart and mediastinum are given considerable space and the changes in the dome of the diaphragm after reexpansion are described. In the next section the therapeutic effects of pneumothorax on the pulmonary lesion are considered.
