Multiple medical, surgical and bronchoscopic procedures have been applied until today for the treatment of emphysema described as abnormal and permanent enlargement of the distal airways. It has failed in some cases, and some serious complications have been experienced in some of them. Although there have been various articles about the benefits of the endobronchial volume reducing operations in the literature, there are no sufficient data about the emergent complications. Here, we present a case in which we have performed endobronchial coil application by bronchoscopy, and the coil has been removed by thoracoscopy because of pneumothorax caused by migrating to the pleural cavity.
