Thank you Vasanthi, i'm coming across it for the first time. "Catamenial-pneumothorax : A rare condition that often involves endometriosis of the diaphragm, causing the lung to collapse during menses". What would be our part in the treatment of this condition?

I was going thru the condition more and i felt we might have to do more than or may be different a bit than from handling a pneumothorax. The patient is having a weak diaphragm and might be needing a different approach than the regular. what do you feel?

I agree to your point. but there is already multiple defects in diaphragm(which might be the cause of CPT.) so i dont think we can give strengthening, or any diaphragmatic endurance exs at initial stage. once the underlying patho is corrected (if any by surgical means) then diaph re education can be given.

Nope, i dint mean we directly addressing issues of the diaphragm here, but needs different techniques to initiate the breathing pattern reeducation or lung expansion ex's than what we might opt for with the regular pneumothorax cases considering the role of diaphragm in the breathing mechanism. And as u mentioned, if some surgical measures is done for the diaphragm, then we need to add the diaphragm rehab measures too. I'm stil learning more about the condition and will surely add any info if i come across any.
