OBJECTIVE The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the efficacy of anatomic thoracoscopic pulmonary segmentectomy performed under the guidance of 3-dimensional multidetector computed tomography simulation. METHODS Between September 2004 and June 2009, 52 patients (median age, 68 years; range, 16-85 years) underwent thoracoscopic segmentectomy without mini-thoracotomy. Images were obtained by using 64-channel multidetector computed tomography and a contrast agent. The pulmonary… CONTINUE READING
