The middle mediastinum is defined using Felson's classification which defines the mediastinal compartments using an anatomic classification based on radiographic projection rather than anatomic dissection. Therefore, the middle mediastinum is defined as space between imaginary lines. One along the posterior cardiac border and anterior aspect of the trachea and the other connecting a point on each of the thoracic vertebrae 1 cm behind its anterior margin.
