Abstract

Notwithstanding that some basilar technical and oncological concepts are still valid, thoracic incisions and surgical techniques to cure lung and airway diseases have been progressively modified during the years. Minimally invasive surgery is by now considered the preferred approach in early stages of lung cancer. The improvement of perioperative patient’s management and of technology has allowed performing more and more difficult and extended procedures with good results in terms of early and long-term survival. Finally, surgery represents a valid option for very selected emphysema patients.
