Malignant Mesothelioma with Surgical Pneumonectomy (Lung Removal)

This stock medical exhibit begins with an anterior view of the lungs showing the pre-operative condition, with extensive malignant mesothelioma cancer of the right lung. The next few images describe multiple steps of the pneumonectomy surgery, including the incision, removal of the 5th rib, removal of the right lung and parts of the pericardium and diaphragm, and reconstruction of the pericardium and diaphragm with mesh. The final image shows the post-operative condition, with the lung removed and the mesh in place.
