Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the increasing incidence of chest tumors (lung cancer, esophageal cancer, etc.), using modern TV camera technology and high-tech surgical equipment is a new technique of minimally invasive thoracic surgery that completes complex intrathoracic surgery under a chest wall cannula or a small incision. This technique has changed the concept of treatment of some thoracic surgical diseases and is considered to be the most significant achievement in thoracic surgery since the 20th century. At present, various traditional thoracic surgeries, such as radical resection of lung cancer, radical resection of esophageal cancer, and resection of mediastinal tumors, can all be completed under thoracoscopic surgery.

This Special Issue invites submissions on the topics of benign and malignant diseases of the lung, esophagus, mediastinum, diaphragm, and chest wall. Cardiac and vascular studies will not be considered. Clinical research articles are most welcome, but valuable basic research may also be submitted. All submissions will be subject to a thorough peer review process. We look forward to your contributions of great articles on this topic.

Prof. Dr. Shah-Hwa Chou
Guest Editor
