ROSENBERG, NELSON PERELMAN; SCHULER, CELSO; DELGIOVO, FERNANDO and BITTENCOURT, JOSÉ AUGUSTO FERREIRA. Bronchogenic cyst with videothoracoscopic approach. J. Pneumologia [online]. 2002, vol.28, n.6, pp.339-341. ISSN 0102-3586. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-35862002000600008.
Bronchogenic cysts are the most common cause of mediastinal cystic mass and surgical resection is the treatment of choice. The authors report a case of bronchogenic cyst with successful treatment by video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS). They emphasize the benefits of VATS in the management of this pathology and compare this technique to conventional thoracotomy.
