On the other hand, a small (accidental, or purposely retained) pneumothorax will also absorb uneventfully within a few days, barring ongoing pulmonary air leak. I have minimal experience with this passive, less controlled, "no chest tube" method for expanding hypoplastic lung (although equally satisfactory results are alleged).
