Özet

Pleurodesis with fibrin glue has been used to treat bronchopleural fistulas and persistent air leaks in adults and neonates. We report successful use of fibrin glue in an extremely premature infant to seal a pneumothorax that had persisted for more than one week despite high-frequency ventilation.
