About this book

Use of the transcervical approach in thoracic surgery has advanced significantly during the past 60 years, owing primarily to advances in technology. Nevertheless, the possibilities of this approach have never been compiled in a systematic way. This book aims to rectify the situation by describing, in a structured way, all the thoracic procedures that can be performed using the transcervical approach. Indications and contraindications, surgical techniques, complications, and results are all covered, based on the authors’ experience and published reports. The contents encompass diverse surgical endoscopic procedures for diagnosis and staging, use of the transcervical approach for surgery to the thymus and mediastinum, lungs and bronchi, trachea and esophagus and miscellaneous items including the role of robotic surgery.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book offers expert instruction on thoracic surgery through a cervical approach, covering current applications thoroughly and discussing future uses. … The book is written for practitioners and trainees in thoracic surgery. … This is a very useful book for practitioners of thoracic surgery interested in performing procedures through a cervical incision. It offers a detailed discussion of a topic often only covered in a textbook chapter. It will be a good addition to any reading on thoracic surgery.” (Michael Bates, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2014)
