Abstract

We performed video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery for pulmonary metastasis with the patient in the prone position because the use of the full lateral decubitus position was not possible owing to a deformity of the upper extremity, which existed because of a previous operation for osteosarcoma. In cases where the lateral decubitus position cannot be used, the prone position is both safe and effective for treating dorsal lesions of the lung by means of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery.
