Post Procedure Advice following a Thoracoscopy

Thoracoscopy (also known as pleuroscopy) is a medical procedure involving internal examination within the pleural and thoracic cavity.

Thoracoscopy uses a special instrument called a thoracoscope. This is a thin, tubular instrument which has a video camera built into the end. The camera feeds pictures from the chest on to a viewing screen. This allows your doctor to look inside the chest and view the lung surface.
