Featuring more than 400 illustrations, this volume demonstrates the surgical procedures used to treat thoracic malignancies and the anatomic structures and relationships encountered during each procedure. It is the first text to combine meticulous surgeon’s-eye drawings of thoracic anatomy with step-by-step presentations of specific open and thoracoscopic techniques for the lung, mediastinum, trachea, chest wall, spine, and esophagus. The illustrations, drawn by Dr. Wind, are derived from intraoperative experiences, operative photographs, and cadaver dissections. They clarify the complex arrangement of intrathoracic structures in the presence of an invasive tumor. Alongside the drawings are instructions on technique, plus commentaries by expert consulting editors.
