Thoracic surgery involves surgical interventions on the lungs, on the mediastinum (vertically passing anatomical space in the middle of the thoracic cavity), on the pleura (a thin membrane that covers the walls of the chest cavity from the inside, like the pulmonary pleura surrounds the lungs) and on the chest wall. In addition, this medical discipline deals with both prevention and diagnosis of various thoracic diseases, as well as their post-operative treatment.
