Therefore, the patient consented to surgery and a thoracoscopic lung biopsy was performed, followed by a middle right lobectomy through a minithoracotomy
because the middle lobe had a global malacic appearance.
Comparison of the outcomes of modified artificial chordae technique for mitral regurgitation through right minithoracotomy
or median sternotomy.
Multiple lung biopsies were also performed using a left anterior minithoracotomy
through the fifth intercostal space.
as a surgical approach for the concomitant treatment of atrial fibrillation.
With the advancement of surgical technique, video-assisted minithoracotomy
for blunt diaphragmatic injury may be a feasible alternative for delayed hemothorax, especially in hemodynamically stable patients.[sup],,
Glauber, "Traversing the learning curve in minimally invasive heart valve surgery: a cumulative analysis of an individual surgeon's experience with a right minithoracotomy
approach for aortic valve replacement," European Journal of Cardio-thoracic Surgery, vol.
 reported in 2001 that the anterior column of the thoracic spine could easily be assessed and reconstructed using a minithoracotomy
and a table-mounted retractor.
The corrective surgery was carried out via the minithoracotomy
approach in Chiang Mai University Hospital.
Minimally invasive coronary bypass using internal thoracic arteries via a left minithoracotomy
: "the Nambiar Technique".
In 2 patients, conversion to minithoracotomy
A new resynchronization therapy was identified to be done and PM upgrade was performed: due to the failure of coronary sinus lead implantation, the pacing electrode was implanted using a transapical approach (by a left minithoracotomy
and transthoracic two-stage Seldinger-type puncture and dilatation of the apex) and it was placed on the interventricular septum (Fig.1D-F).
