Thoracoscopic Surgery—Glad Tidings for broad Patients

Under the same premise of achieving radical tumor excision, thoracoscopy enlarges the surgical field of vision, and features more meticulousness in surgical operation, less intraoperative hemorrhage, slighter pain, shorter length of hospitalization, and faster prognosed recovery. It excises the lesions through very small trauma to achieve the same effects as thoracotomy so that patients can suffer less.

Few postoperative complications are developed. In case of routine thoracotomy, it will be quite difficult to treat patients again due to large surgical trauma, numerous postoperative complications, and other complications including poor postoperative would healing among some patients. While thoracoscope boasts small surgical trauma and fast recovery.

The scars left by incision are small in size and esthetically favorable. By avoiding the presence of postoperative large scars, thoracoscope relieves the postoperative psychological pressure of patients
