Abstract

Thoracotomy is defined as an incision made by the surgeon in the chest wall in order to allow visibility of the thoracic cavity content. This can be used by surgeons to treat thoracic cavity content diseases including the heart, lungs, esophagus, and other organs. Thoracic incision closure remains an item with no consensus. Therefore, we present an easy way and give a little tip for closure using the slipknot that will allow the correct approach of ribs and the successful closure of the intercostal space.
