Abstract

This tutorial shows the resection of a bulla by uniportal video assisted thoracoscopic surgery in bullous lung disease. This disease is a benign condition requiring treatment in cases of severe dyspnea, spontaneous secondary pneumothorax, repeated infection, hemoptysis, and an increase in bulla size. The uniportal VATS approach results in less pain, better cosmoses, and a quicker recovery for the patient.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 26 April 2017.
All research outputs
#7,390,252
of 8,554,039 outputs
Outputs from Multimedia Manual of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery
#86
of 138 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#196,147
of 237,523 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Multimedia Manual of Cardio-Thoracic Surgery
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 8,554,039 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 138 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 1.3. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 237,523 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 1st percentile – i.e., 1% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
