Mediastinoscopy is often necessary in management of lung cancer. Progress recently achieved in the field of thoracoscopy has led us to introduce videothoracoscopy as a complement to mediastinoscopy in preoperative management of such tumors. From June 1994 to June 1995, 113 patients presenting with stage I-IIIA lung cancer underwent a videothoracoscopy before surgery. No side-effects were observed. Results obtained in this study lead us to conclude that videothoracoscopy is useful before surgery of lung cancer.
