Subcutaneous drain for extensive subcutaneous surgical emphysema is performed for patients, who are not adequately responsive to chest drainage on suction, especially those without lung collapse and sufficient space for placement of another chest tube in thoracic cavity. We describe the use of the minimally invasive drain with puncture needle, placement in a loop shape, puncture and division of the tunica muscular is, and use of a sustained suction bottle for extensive subcutaneous surgical emphysema.
