In the published literature, there are mainly case-reports and relatively small series published resulting in a low level of evidence for both ITO as a surgical technique by itself, as well as for the use of OP in various clinical situations involving the chest structures. The indications for its use in thoracic surgery are based more on common sense and the lack of other solutions.
