Twenty patients of spontaneous pneumothorax of varying etiology were treated with intercostal drainage with the use of urosac in place of flutter valve. Re-expansion of the lung was observed in all of them within 4 hours to 30 days with an average re-expansion period of 4.7 days. Urosac proved to be a safe, efficient and economical alternative to the flutter valves used earlier.
