ABSTRACT
The article presents a case study of a 60-year-old woman with chronic post-thoracotomy pain syndrome. It discusses a 3-dimensional reconstruction of the computed tomography scan acquired during the admission to exclude pulmonary embolus and aortic dissection. It was stated that syndrome is defined as pain that recurs or persists along a thoracotomy incision for at least 2 months following surgery. Moreover, multiple mechanisms leading to chronic post-thoracotomy pain syndrome are presented.
