abstract

  • Pulmonary metastases from soft tissue sarcomas may present with spontaneous pneumothorax. Metastatectomy via thoracotomy or median sternotomy has been the procedure of choice. We present a patient with bilateral spontaneous pneumothorax secondary to metastatic angiosarcoma where staged video-assisted thoracic surgery using the thoracoscope was used to successfully resect the tumors.
