PERSONAL COMMENTS:
This is a new approach developed to excise a mediastinal parathyroid gland through an intercostal window. It is less invasive than standard VATS.

ABSTRACT:
Thoracic parathyroid ectopia is an uncommon situation causing persistent/recurrent hyperparathyroidism. Minimally invasive techniques have been developed as an alternative to sternotomy.
Here we present the Intercostal Video-Assisted Mediastinal Surgery (IVAMS), a new approach to perform ectopic mediastinal parathyroidectomy. It is an alternative to standard Standard Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) in order to simplify, if possible, the management of these infrequent surgical cases.
