Case description

This video showcases how Tachosil® can successfully not only seal but facilitate an effective sealing of the air leakage area from the damaged pulmonary parenchyma during VATs procedures. In this video a 64-year-old female patient was diagnosed with an irregular tumour in the lower right lobe of about 5cm in diameter, with no enlarged lymphnodes in the mediastinum. The lung cancer was treated by lobe removal through VATS, with no postoperative complications.
