Thoracoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure and today it has become established as a standard intervention for diagnosis and treatment of diseases in the chest cavity. The development of special endoscopic instruments for surgery and the progress in video camera systems allow the surgeon and operating room team to view complex operations in the thorax.
