Author Shavkat Salimov, Bobir Abdusamatov, Hojiakbar Usmanov, Alisher Vakhidov
Abstract The paper describes results of videothoracoscopic echinococcectomy of lungs in 45 children aged from 1 to 15 years. Pulmonary echinococcectomy of lungs in 37 (82.2%) cases was accomplished only through thoracic access. In 8 (17.8%) children it was implemented using video-assisted thoracoscopic echinococcectomy - combination of thoracic access and mini-thoracotomy length less than 5cm. No complications were fixed. Children were discharged in satisfactory state on 6th-7th day after operation.
