Abstract

Progress in instrumentation and techniques developed for laparoscopic surgery have paved the way for a resurgent interest in thoracoscopic procedures. Traditional thoracoscopy was limited by access, restricted visualization, and surgical devices. Recent cases provided an opportunity to successfully perform thoracoscopic pulmonary wedge excisions using state-of-the-art technology and instruments adapted from laparoscopy. These preliminary cases provided an opportunity to modify and adapt these techniques to thoracic procedures. Video thoracoscopy is rapidly evolving in both methods and instrumentation.
