Exploration of the contralateral pleural cavity via transmediastinal access has been described for minor lung resections in close proximity to the
mediastinum. Also simultaneous thoracoscopic bilateral bullectomy through mediastinal access has been described as an alternative to bilateral
sequential thoracoscopic procedures in highly selected patients with bilateral spontaneous pneumothorax. We herein describe a more complex
procedure during which a video-assisted lung volume reduction surgery was performed through an anterior transmediastinal access following
right sided thoracotomy and lobectomy of a completely destroyed upper lobe in a patient with borderline lung function and severe bilateral lung
emphysema.
