[Show abstract][Hide abstract]ABSTRACT: Experience of diagnostics and surgical treatment of of 100 patients with small-sized lung lesions was analyzed. Thus, authors pose, that patients with lung focal lesion less than 10mm in diameter, should have a lung resection, performed from minithoracotomy. Videthotacoscopic lung biopsy is appropriate by multiple focal lesions. Patients with solitary peripheral lung lesion more than 1sm in diameter, should get a lung resection, performed from minithoracotomy with videoassistance. Patients with solitary lesion less than 5 mm in diameter requier radiological dynamic follow-up (CT-scan each 6 months).
[Show abstract][Hide abstract]ABSTRACT: The experience in more than 2000 surgeries on the lungs is analyzed. Recently intraoperative ultrasonic and laser autofluorescent spectroscopic revision of tumors of the lungs and mediastinal organs is successfully used. Intrasurgical ultrasonic examination of the lungs permits to detect the structure and diffusion of primary lung tumor (invasion of vessels) that influences policy of treatment. Optical spectroscopy permits one to carry out intraoperative rapid diagnosis of benign and malignant lung tumors.
