Major pulmonary resections are generally performed through long thoracotomies which cause important functional and cosmetic sequelae. The progress in videoendoscopic surgery has allowed the authors to perform 31 pulmonary resections (28 lobectomies, 1 segmentectomy and 2 pneumonectomies) by thoracoscopic approach.

Abstract

Major pulmonary resections are generally performed through long thoracotomies which cause important functional and cosmetic sequelae. The progress in videoendoscopic surgery has allowed the authors to perform 31 pulmonary resections (28 lobectomies, 1 segmentectomy and 2 pneumonectomies) by thoracoscopic approach. Seven patients had benign pulmonary disease, 3 patients had pulmonary metastases and 21 cases suffered from a primary lung cancer TNM stage I. In all cases of malignancy hilar lymphadenectomy was performed. No major postoperative complications were observed. Functional and cosmetic results were always excellent.
