Bianchi Thoracotomy

Dr. Edwin Jesudason writes:

"In Liverpool, we have been using a technique first described more than 10 years ago in Manchester, UK by Adrian Bianchi - to make use of an incision that is hidden in the armpit. This is called the axillary approach and is very cosmetic. I should be grateful to know if you or your members are familiar with this approach and what level of awareness there amongst surgeons about using this technique to successfully hide the thoracotomy scar high in the armpit."

If anyone is aware of this technique, please let me know at
