Abstract

Video-assisted thoracoscopy was used to remove a bronchogenic cyst in a 6-year-old boy and a foregut duplication cyst in a 2-year-old girl. Access ports were placed along the site of a proposed thoracotomy incision and chest tube exit site. Thoracoscopic excision was uneventful, and each child left the hospital on the second postoperative day. Video-assisted thoracoscopy has a role in the evaluation and the definitive treatment of intrathoracic masses in children.
