PURPOSE Children with cancer may develop lesions in the lung that may represent metastatic disease. Thoracotomy is considered the standard approach for resection of pulmonary nodules. Recently, thoracoscopic techniques have been applied in these situations. However, nodules that are deep in the lung parenchyma may not be visible. A technique has been developed whereby minimally invasive thoracoscopic ultrasound (MITUS) may be used to guide resection of deep pulmonary nodules. METHODS We… CONTINUE READING
