Abstract: We concluded that a complete thoracoscopic lung resection is a safe and technically feasible surgical procedure which enables us to make thoracoscopic lung resections less invasive.

“…VATS is considered to be the most significant progress made in thoracic surgery at the end of the 20th century. Since the first pioneering lobectomy completed using VATS (14,15), the techniques and reliability of such surgeries have considerably improved (16)(17)(18)(19). VATS is now well established as an alternative treatment to open thoracotomy for major resections of lung cancer and benign disease.…”

“…Dissection of the pulmonary vessels and bronchi are performed in the same manner as in open lobectomy, and moderate adhesions or absent fissures are not contraindications to VATS resection. Mediastinal lymph node dissection is also performed in patients with non-small lung cancer, similar to open lobectomy techniques (19,20). A rib spreader was not used.…”

“…Over the last 10 years, major pulmonary resection by video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) has been shown to be both safe and technically feasible, and to offer a number of advantages over conventional surgery [1][2][3][4]. Nevertheless, its adoption as a standard technique is proving slow; VATS is not routinely performed in most hospitals, and tends to be used mainly in highly specialized centers.…”
