O que é a Tumors in the mediastinum

In mediastinal tumor surgery, minimally invasive techniques are used to perform mediastinoscopy, a procedure that allows a detailed examination of the region to check for metastasis and also puncture material for biopsy. After the tumor has been identified and surgery is indicated, minimally invasive techniques will be used in procedures called VATS (Video-Assisted Thoracoscopy).

Descrição do procedimento

The thoracic surgeon will introduce a device with a small camera, which generates high definition images, attached to its end. In this way, the field of view is enlarged.

After locating the tumor, the region is demarcated and the tumor and a small area around it are resected to prevent the formation of a new tumor mass. After surgery, the patient may need to use a drain to prevent bleeding.

As the surgical area is small and the removal is objective, there is preservation of the rib cage musculature. The patient will feel less pain, will be less debilitated, recovery will be faster and if there is a need to use auxiliary therapies such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, they can be done in a shorter period. This is a very important advantage in the fight against cancer, as some tumors grow rapidly.

Regarding work activity, after XX days the patient will be able to return to work. Normally, full mobility recovery is at the end of XX and moderate physical activity at XX.
