CT-scan screening for LAM in women with collapsed lung is cost-effective
Date:3/4/2010

successful in raising awareness among emergency room providers, who typically manage these subjects during their acute sentinel event," said Dr. Kinder.

John Heffner, M.D., past president of the ATS believes that the study will change future guideline recommendations in how to treat patients presenting with pneumothorax. "According to this study, only 20 women presenting with an initial pneumothorax would need to be screened by high-resolution CT to identify one patient with LAM," he said. "Early detection not only provides opportunities for prevention of subsequent pneumothoraces, but also allows patient counseling, family planning, lifestyle adjustments and early enrollment in clinical trials that are investigating innovative therapies for what is now an untreatable and progressive disorder.

"The results from the study will inform clinical approaches for the management of patients with pneumothorax in the future. Clearly, not all patients or even all women who present with an initial pneumothorax should undergo HRCT scanning, but I believe that the impressive cost effectiveness demonstrated in this investigation will encourage future patients' guideline developers to recommend CT scanning for all nonsmoking woman between the ages of 25-54 years."
