Book Description:

In Medical Thoracoscopy/Pleuroscopy: Manual and Atlas, international experts explain the current methodology and demonstrate different technical approaches to medical thoracoscopy/pleuroscopy (MT/P) in the diagnosis and treatment of pleuropulmonary diseases.


A combination of instructive manual and atlas, this book presents clinical cases with indications, techniques, and outcomes for each procedure. In the 'Atlas', endoscopic photographs demonstrate the application of this minimally invasive technique in various pathologies, from pleural effusion to various manifestations of lung cancer.




  • Diagnostic and therapeutic indications reflect new
    technology such as the semi-rigid/semi-flexible pleuroscope, CT/MR imaging, and
    video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)
  • Over 150 full-color endoscopic photographs and 120
    figures enhance the text
  • An accompanying DVD contains video clips of 8 typical
    clinical cases, plus practical information on the use of talc poudrage, the
    induction of a pneumothorax, and more


This comprehensive visual guide is an indispensable primer for residents and fellows in pulmonology or pneumology, and for respiratory physicians, internists, or thoracic surgeons.
