Abstract

Thoracoscopy has been and continues to be widely utilized for a variety of diseases, both benign and malignant, in the lung. Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is used in known benign pulmonary conditions including bleb resection and pleurodesis for recurrent pneumothorax, lung biopsy for interstitial lung disease, and lung volume reduction surgery for endstage emphysema. Thoracoscopic procedures are also widely employed for the definitive diagnosis of indeterminate pulmonary nodules, recurrent pleural effusions, and isolated diffuse lung disease.
