Abstract

Surgical management of patients with compromised lung function remains a challenge. We describe a technique that uses a partial sternotomy to manage high-risk patients with clinical stage 1 apical lung tumors. In our experience with four patients we found this method to be effective, quick, safe, and with good short term outcome.
