Features of the Division
1. Thoracic minimally invasive techniques
Excepting vedio-assisted lobectomy and limited pulmonary
resection, surgery techniques with VATS for enucleation of leiomyoma
of esophagus, diverticulectomy of esophagus, cardiomyotomy,
repairment for esophageal hiatal hernia have been become the routine
methods at our Division. Application of combined vedio laparoscopy
and thoracoscopy for resection of esophageal cancer and
esophagogastrostomy in neck is the latest addition to one of our
Division’s feature, which place the lead at domestic institutions.
No other thoracic surgery center carries out such operation in
Beijing so far.
2. Thoracic complicated and advanced techniques
new operative techniques for the management of difficult technical
problems, such as lung volume reduction, locally advanced lung and
esophageal carcinomas, resection and reconstruction of the pulmonary
artery, reconstruction after carina removal and sleevelet resection
of bronches, lung autograft and esophagointestinostomy, etc, have
been undergone successfully in our Division and reaching the top
level in China because of abundance of acknowledge and experience in
the past 50 years in general thoracic surgery.
3. Undertaking projects
Clinical study of early diagnosis and screen for non-small cell lung
cancer; Clinical study of metastatic rules of mediastinal lymph node
and effective analysis of systematical resection for mediastinal in
non-small cell lung cancer; Experimental and clinic study of
artificial brochea and esophegus
4. Personalized treatment
Multimodality and personalized therapy in the management of many
thoracic malignancies have been offered by combined acknowledge and
expertise from thoracic surgery, physician, radiology and pathology
according to each patient's physical condition.
