The description of the video-assisted thoracoscopic thymectomy explains all aspects of the surgical procedure used for the management of anterior mediastinal tumors. This is the case of a 53-year-old patient with a past medical history of papillary carcinoma. A control CT-scan showed an anterior mediastinal tumor, morphologically in favor of a thymoma. Patient positioning and technical key steps of the surgical procedure are presented.
