Each case begins with the clinical presentation and proceeds to X-ray report, differential diagnosis, CT scan report, diagnosis and recommendation, surgical approach, outcome, and discussion. X-rays, CT scans, bronchoscopic photographs, and other relevant illustrations accompany the text. Some cases include postoperative complications and discussion of the causes, evaluation, and management of these complications.
