Video-assisted thoracic surgery-The past, present status and the future
Pulmonary actinomycosis: a case undergoing resection through video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS)
Pulmonary neoplasm was highly suspected in this patient and thus resection of the mass was undertaken through video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS).
Important risk factors for perioperative respiratory complications include chronic respiratory diseases, upper abdominal or thoracic surgery, obesity, and cigarette smoking.
The penetration of sulbactam plus ampicillin into lung tissue was studied in 15 patients undergoing thoracic surgery for pneumonectomy after the administration of 1 g of sulbactam plus 2 g of ampicillin as a 15 min intravenous short infusion.
