The serratus sling: A simplified serratus-sparing technique

Richard F. Heitmiller

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A partial muscle-sparing technique is presented that combines the advantage of muscle sparing with the wide exposure offered by a posterolateral incision. The technique is simple and quick, does not require elaborate equipment, and facilitates thoracotomy closure.
