Pleural partition with intrathoracic muscle transposition (muscle tent) to manage residual spaces after subtotal pulmonary resections

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The concept of separating the pleural cavity to better control residual spaces has been revisited by introducing a technique of pleural partition through transposed chest wall muscles (muscle tent). This technique has been successfully used in 3 patients with severe lung destruction due to chronic infections who required subtotal pulmonary resections.
