Abstract

Personal experience in the use of 2 different accesses to the pleural cavity: anterolateral thoracotomy (ALT) and posterolateral thoracotomy (PLT), is reported. Some techniques used to provide optimum display of the intrathoracic organs during ALT are described. This is followed by the analysis of postoperative complications in two groups of similar patients (99 subjects) which might be related to the type of parietal incision. Finally the technical and functional advantages of ALT over the classic PLT both during surgery and in the early post-operative period are discussed.
