A detailed guide to the latest endoscopic techniques in interventional pulmonology

In Medical Thoracoscopy/Pleuroscopy: Manual and Atlas, international experts explain current methodology and demonstrate different technical approaches for the use of medical thoracoscopy/pleuroscopy (MT/P) in the diagnosis and treatment of pleuropulmonary diseases.

The authors combine the instructive nature of a manual with the visual aspects of an atlas. In the Manual section, the indications, techniques, and results are described in detail. In the Atlas section, full-color endoscopic photographs supplement descriptions of how to apply this minimally invasive technique to a variety of common and rare pathologies, from pleural effusion of various origins to empyema, pneumothorax, and diffuse lung diseases.


  • Fully up-to-date diagnostic and therapeutic indications reflect technological advances, including the semi-rigid/semi-flexible pleuroscope, and delineate the differences to video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS)
  • Over 150 full-color endoscopic photographs and 120 figures enhance the text
  • An accompanying DVD contains video clips of 8 typical clinical cases, plus practical information on the use of talc poudrage, the induction of a pneumothorax, and more
This comprehensive visual guide is an indispensable primer for residents and fellows in pulmonology or pneumology, and for respiratory physicians, internists, or thoracic surgeons.
