Abstract

Transmanubrial osteomuscular sparing approach (TMA) has been recently proposed for the treatment of apical chest tumor to allow a safer subclavian artery control with a less invasive procedure for the patient. The present technique combines the antero-lateral muscle-sparing thoracotomy with TMA for lung cancer patients in whom extended resection of cervico-thoracic structures as well as anatomic lung resection and radical lymph nodes dissection are required.
