Thoracic surgery when performed using a small video camera in a patient's chest by making small incisions is termed Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS or commonly known as keyhole surgery). The small incisions made reduces the rate of infection entering into the patient’s body. Also, the rate of recovery is must faster as compared to the normal open surgery
Traditionally, thoracic surgery has been performed through a thoracotomy, which is a surgical incision made between the ribs. The incision is approximately 10-15 cm and often results in the need to cut or spread the ribs to get adequate visualization. Typical procedures performed via this approach include removal of the lung or a portion of the lung, esophagus, or chest wall tumors, and repairs of the esophagus, lung, or major blood vessels.
The surgical treatment of thymomas is termed as Thymectomy. The procedure has achieved massive success in the improvement of Myasthenia Gravia post thymectomy. Robotic Thymectomy has become an alternative approach to open surgery/video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. This procedure uses Da Vinci Technology to perform surgeries.
