Endobronchial Valves Cope with the Persistent Contagion Air Trickles in Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2.

Recent cases of pneumothorax and on-going air leakage as ARDS-related consequences caused by the SARS CoV-2 virus have been described. Pneumothorax can develop as a result of alveolar-pleural and broncho-pleural fistulas. Endobronchial Valves, a bronchoscopy-guided technique, has been established as a therapeutic option for these fistulas relatively recently. Endobronchial valves are an efficient, minimally invasive surgery for individuals with PALs, according to recent literature. The first two covid-19 cases complicated by pneumothorax and persistent air leaks that were successfully treated with EBV placement are described in this article.
