Transcervical thymectomy is a standard approach to the thymus and anterior mediastinum, but it is limited by poor exposure of the lower recesses of the anterior mediastinum. A novel technique using the widely available internal thoracic artery sternal retractor and a 30°-video camera allows enhanced exposure of the anterior mediastinum.
