Abstract

We describe the surgical removal of a pedunculated solitary fibrous tumor of the pleura through single-access (uniportal) video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery. At the end of the procedure, no chest drain was inserted and the patient discharged home after an 8-hour observation period. Uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery can represent a suitable surgical option for small solitary fibrous tumors of the pleura.
