Abstract

Comorbidity of primary lung cancer and heart valve disease, both requiring surgical therapy, characterizes a high-risk group of patients necessitating prompt diagnosis and treatment. Recently, the rate of minimal invasive approach for patients who were not indicated for conventional thoracotomy surgery due to their high-risk status with the procedure has increased as treatment for heart valve disease. We herein report four patients of lung cancer resection with simultaneous valve procedure though thoracoscopic technique [Bablekos 2016].
