Hand-assisted laparoscopic harvesting of an omental pedicle in the treatment of complicated chronic empyema



Hand-assisted laparoscopic harvesting of an omental pedicle in the treatment of complicated chronic empyema



Surgical Endoscopy 15(5): 448-449



We describe a new method for hand-assisted laparoscopic harvesting of an omental pedicle and its use in the treatment of chronic empyema with a bronchopulmonary fistula. This technique may also be appropriate as a less invasive surgical procedure in the treatment of a number of other thoracic infectious conditions.
