[The transmediastinal pleurotomy (author's transl)].

Abstract

A new surgical method is presented, the transmediastinal pleurotomy. With this technique it is possible to explore the opposite lung from a standard thoracotomy and to perform diagnostic or therapeutic resections in suitable cases. So far we have performed 20 transmediastinal pleurotomies without any complications.
