In the below video,Dr Nick Cleland BVSc (Merit) FANZCVS Small Animal Surgery Specialist, talks about Thoracoscopic Surgery in animals.

Veterinary Specialist Services are happy to be able to offer many minimally invasive procedures including thoracoscopic surgery. Thoracoscopic surgery involves the placement of a small portal into the thorax which allows placement of instruments and a camera to perform various procedures within the thorax. A common thoracoscopic procedure we perform is thoracoscopic pericardectomy for pericardial effusion.
