Lung Surgeries: Procedure Details

Lung surgery can be performed in two ways, including:

  1. Thoracotomy: Thoracotomy is an open surgery in which an incision is made alongside the chest wall to your back. The ribs will be separated, and your lungs will be deflated to stop the airflow. The proposed lung surgery is performed and drainage tubes or chest tubes will be placed to drain out the fluid buildup. After draining out the fluid, the ribs, chest muscles and bones will be closed using sutures.
  2. Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery: In Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery, surgeon makes 2 or 3 small keyholes in chest wall and inserts a thoracoscope into chest cavity. Now, the part of the lungs, blood, or fluid accumulated will be removed from your lungs. It causes less pain and provides you with faster recovery than open lung surgery.
