Medical Thoracoscopy is a minimally invasive technique generally performed to diagnose and/or treat pleural lung disease. The pleura is a massive, thin sheet of tissue that covers the outer surface of your lungs and lines the interior of your chest cavity.
Patients with pleural thickening or pleural effusions (pleural fluid) who have lung cancer, chylothorax, metastatic cancers, mesothelioma, or benign conditions such as congestive heart failure, may be suitable for this procedure.
Most subjects have a reoccurring accumulation of pleural fluid in breathing issues, cough, chest pain, and the inability to lie horizontally.
Thoracoscopy lets the surgeon visualize the lung pleura and determine the pleural fluid's cause, which suggests the ability to handle medication to inhibit further fluid from returning.
