Özet

Several procedures such as video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) are used to make a definite diagnosis in recurrent pleural effusions so that appropriate treatment can be arranged. Single-incision thoracoscopic surgery (SITS) is the most appropriate procedure that can be used for this purpose. The contribution of SITS to diagnosis and treatment is evaluated in this study that we conducted using a single thoracoport in patients with pleural effusion.
