We ­report the suc­cess­ful sur­gi­cal treat­ment of chron­ic expand­ing hemat­o­ma in the ­chest. Four ­patients who had pre­vi­ous­ly under­gone arti­fi­cial pneu­moth­o­rax, tho­rac­o­plas­ty or ­tumor extir­pa­tion ­more ­than 30 ­years ear­li­er recent­ly ­became ­aware of a slow­ly grow­ing ­mass. Chronic expand­ing hemat­o­ma ­which devel­oped ­into ­very ­large mass­es ­over a ­long peri­od of ­time ­were ­thus suc­cess­ful­ly resect­ed. These ­patients are now all in ­good ­health ­with no recur­rence ­after the oper­a­tion. It is impor­tant to mon­i­tor ­such ­patients’ labor­a­to­ry ­data for hemo­sta­sis includ­ing the plate­let ­cell ­counts, the % pro­throm­bin ­time and the D-dim­er, ­both ­before and imme­di­ate­ly ­after oper­a­tion, and the intra­op­er­a­tive bleed­ing vol­ume.
