The diverse minimally or less invasive strategies reported in the literature include splitting the manubrium (manubriotomy), closed mediastinal exploration with dedicated equipment followed by excision of the gland via transcervical approach, video-assisted mediastinoscopy, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS), and robot-assisted exploration (1, 10).
