Abstract: Thoracotomy is acknowledged as one of the most painful procedures in surgical practice, with the potential to result in significant acute and chronic sequelae, which become especially relevant in high-risk patient populations. Certain pathologies necessitate this surgical approach, and in those circumstances we must aim to mitigate postoperative complications by employing surgical techniques that decrease the risk of nerve injury, rib fracture, and unnecessary soft tissue trauma. We describe an approach to thoracotomy that incorporates evidence-based strategies to lessen the risk of these potential complications, which resulted in rapid postoperative recovery in a nonagenarian
