[Video-assisted thoracoscopy in the diagnosis and surgical treatment of tuberculosis and other respiratory diseases].
ABSTRACT Resection operations performed on the lung using endoscopic techniques are divided into VATS and video-assisted thoracoscopy. Our experience with VATS in patients with pulmonary tuberculosis and other respiratory disorders is 66 transactions. Complications in the postoperative period were not observed. The advantages of VATS in phtiziosurgical practice are high information content, reducing the time of diagnosis; reduction in the number of patients receiving test treatment, improve treatment quality and outcome of disease through early diagnosis verification, reducing economic losses due to refusal of the trial unreasonably prolonged courses of therapy for tuberculosis in the absence of radiographic dynamics.
