Abstract

Thoracoscopic surgery offers an exciting method for treating a variety of thoracic disease processes. To date, several thoracoscopic procedures have been described in veterinary patients. This article discusses the basic principles of thoracoscopic surgery and thoracic access, anesthetic concerns, and required instrumentation. A companion article discussing the surgical techniques of thoracoscopic pericardial window creation, subphrenic pericardectomy, thoracoscopic lung biopsy, lung lobectomy, thoracic duct ligation, and cranial mediastinal mass excision will be published in the February 2013 issue.
