Pleural partition with intrathoracic muscle transposition (muscle tent) to manage residual spaces after subtotal pulmonary resections



Pleural partition with intrathoracic muscle transposition (muscle tent) to manage residual spaces after subtotal pulmonary resections



Annals of Thoracic Surgery 78(4): E74-E76



The concept of separating the pleural cavity to better control residual spaces has been revisited by introducing a technique of pleural partition through transposed chest wall muscles (muscle tent). This technique has been successfully used in 3 patients with severe lung destruction due to chronic infections who required subtotal pulmonary resections.
