Thoracic surgery instrument kit - VATS
Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to diagnose and treat problems in your chest.
During a VATS procedure, a tiny camera (thoracoscope) and surgical instruments are inserted into your chest through one or more small incisions in your chest wall. The thoracoscope transmits images of the inside of your chest onto a video monitor, guiding the surgeon in performing the procedure.
Surgeons use the video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery technique to perform a variety of procedures, such as:
· Biopsy to diagnose lung cancer, mesothelioma and other chest cancers
· Lung surgery, such as surgery to treat lung cancer and lung volume reduction surgery
· Procedures to remove excess fluid or air from the area around the lungs
· Surgery to relieve excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
· Surgery to treat certain types of esophageal disorders
· Surgery to remove part or all of the esophagus (esophagectomy)
· Hiatal hernia repair
· Thymus gland removal surgery (thymectomy)
· Certain procedures involving the heart, ribs, spine and diaphragm
· What is VATS surgery on the lung?
· Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is a procedure in which a small tube called a thoracoscope is inserted through a small incision between the ribs. At the end of the tube is a small camera. This lets the surgeon see the entire chest cavity without having to open up the chest or spread the ribs.
