Resection of Cysts and Tumours in the Thoracic Cavity

  • Rolf Inderbitzi

Abstract

A shadow found by chance on the chest X-ray is cause for concern for both doctor and patient, even when the location, form and extent strongly suggest a benign lesion. If growth of the tumour can be determined retrospectively or in the period following the discovery, not only verification by biopsy is indicated but also resection of the process. Surgical thoracoscopy is a suitable, definitive therapeutic method, which allows not only verification of the diagnosis by biopsy but also resection and evacuation.
