Pediatric thoracic surgery, which had an important place and was so popular among thoracic surgeons in the first years of Thoracic Surgery, became the least popular branch in the course of time. For the last 20 years, the agenda of thoracic surgeons consists of lung pathology of adult patients, surgery and staging of malignant diseases and lung transplantation.
