    Background: Peripheral subpleural solitary pulmonary nodules can be visualized and resected easily at thoracoscopy, but it is very difficult to localize deep nonpalpable pulmonary nodules that lie in lung parenchyma. The purpose of this article was to study the effectiveness of video-assisted...

    A clear definition of video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) lobectomy is lacking in the current peer-reviewed literature. Reported cases vary from four to six incisions in number, 4.0 to 10.0 cm in length, and with and without rib spreading; in addition, they include direct visualization...

    The article presents a case study of a patient with intercoastal lung herniation treated with video-assisted thoracoscopic technique (VATS) after the aortic valve surgery. The patient also underwent X-stitches fixation and minimizing the risk of patch migration or dislodgement. Also presented...

    Abstract: Objective: Our aim was to evaluate the efficacy of 3D imaging using multidetector row helical computed tomography (MDCT) in the preoperative assessment of the branching pattern of pulmonary artery (PA) before complete video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy (complete VATS lobectomy) for...
