PURPOSE: To determine the clinical efficacy of preoperative coil localization-guided video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for lung nodules. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between November 2015 and July 2017, 56 patients with lung nodules underwent coil localization-guided VATS procedure. The coil implantation was performed under the guidance of computed tomography (CT). The end tail of the coil remained above the visceral pleura. The target lung nodules were removed by VATS wedge resection...

Background: In recent years, single-port video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for lobectomy in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients has become increasingly common. The objective of this study was to compare the feasibility and safety of single-port and triple-port VATS lobectomy. Methods: A total of 73 patients with NSCLC who underwent VATS lobectomy from December 2011 to August 2016 were retrospectively reviewed, including 47 in the triple-port group and 26 in the single-port group...

RATIONALE: Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery and open lobectomy are both standard of care for treatment of early stage NSCLC because of equivalent long-term survival. OBJECTIVE: To evaluated whether the improved peri-operative outcomes associated with VATS are explained by differences in case volume and specialty training. METHODS: We analyzed the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results-Medicare linked registry to identify stage I-II NSCLC in patients above 65 years of age...

BACKGROUND: Video-Assisted Thoracic Surgery (VATS) is conventionally performed through multiple small incisions (C-VATS). Recent studies have reported encouraging results with the single-incision VATS (S-VATS) over the conventional technique. However, these studies were either small in size, unfocused, nonuniform, retrospective, lacking follow-up information, or focused on pain. We aim to validate previously reported results in a single large meta-analysis, including only the best evidence studies available...

Systemic air emboli occur as a rare complication of percutaneous needle biopsy of the lung and video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) marking. Here we present four cases of systemic air emboli from single institution and the imaging findings and embolism' kinetics using contrast-enhanced media during VATS color marking with indocyanine green. We suggest that early detection using routine whole-lung CT is required for asymptomatic patients with abnormal air. If abnormal air is found, we should keep the patient to the appropriate posture in order to prevent moving the air until it dissipates...

BACKGROUND: Pulmonary segmentectomy can be an oncologic equivalent of lobectomy for small non-small cell lung cancer. Uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has recently showed favorable surgical outcomes, but remains technical demanding, especially in a complex procedure like anatomic segmentectomy. This manuscript demonstrates the surgical techniques for uniportal VATS segmentectomies with the assistance of additional needlescopic instruments. METHODS: Data of 22 consecutive patients who underwent 24 needlescopic-assisted uniportal VATS segmentectomies between December 2016 and June 2017 was analyzed...

It is well known that the "gold standard" procedure for surgically resectable early-stage non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), is pulmonary lobectomy. Even though sublobar resections (SLR), particularly segmentectomy, seem attractive as an alternative to lobectomy in early stage lung cancers, they are still debated procedures. The aim of this study is to answer to the question: "Is VATS lung segmentectomy an underused option?" To obtain an answer to this query, the authors carried out a review of the "state of the art" as follows: (I) performing a non-systematic review of the literature; (II) analyzing the review articles published; (III) looking at the ongoing studies, the results of which have not yet published; (IV) scanning the technical aspect of lung segmentectomy...

Lobectomy is still currently the gold standard for treatment of lung cancer. With the great advancement of robotic surgery, robotic lobectomy has been demonstrated to be an operation that is safe and can be done in a timely manner, similar to video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS). Additionally, reports show that long-term oncologic outcomes for robotic lobectomy are consistent with those reported for VATS and open lobectomy. Patients are selected in the same manner as those for VATS. Improved optics, increased dexterity of the instruments, and better ergonomics can yield subjective advantages to the surgeon...

When it comes to surgical treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), modern principles dictate that every possible effort should be made to avoid pneumonectomy, its debilitating consequences and a higher rate of complications. In marginal cases where video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) sleeve or double sleeve lobectomy cannot be performed a conversion to open sleeve lobectomy is always preferred over a VATS pneumonectomy. We present a case of a 64-year-old male patient with two synchronous tumors of the right lung, both centrally located in the right upper and the right lower lobe...

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has been widely accepted as a minimally invasive surgery for treatment of early-stage lung cancer. However, various VATS approaches are available. In patients with lung cancer, VATS should achieve not only minimal invasiveness but also safety and oncological clearance. In this article, we introduce our method of VATS lobectomy.

The management of hemothorax (spontaneous or, more often, due to thoracic trauma lesions), follows basic tenets well-respected by cardiothoracic surgeons. In most, a non-operative approach is adequate and safe, with a defined group of patients requiring only tube thoracostomy. Only a minority of patients need a surgical intervention due to retained hemothorax, persistent bleeding or incoming complications, as pleural empyema or entrapped lung. In the early 1990s, the rapid technological developments determined an increase of diagnostic and therapeutical indications for multiport video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) as the gold standard therapy for retained and persistent hemothorax, allowing an earlier diagnosis, total clots removal and better tubes placement with less morbidity, reduced post-operative pain and shorter hospital stay...

Over the past 20 years, there have been significant advancements in thoracoscopic surgical techniques as well as in lung cancer screening protocols, which have identified greater numbers of smaller lung tumors (<2 cm) that are more frequently operable and curable. These advancements have led to new interest in the thoracoscopic (VATS) approach to segmentectomy. This article will discuss the outcomes and technical considerations associated with VATS segmentectomy.

BACKGROUND: More than 15 years ago, we started a program of uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopies (VATS) lung metastasectomy in non-intubated local anesthesia. Hereby we present the short and long-term results of this combined surgical-anesthesiological technique. METHODS: Between 2005 and 2015, 71 patients (37 men and 34 women) with pulmonary oligometastases, at the first episode, underwent uniportal VATS metastasectomy under non-intubated anesthesia. RESULTS: Four patients (5...

BACKGROUND: Uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is gaining popularity internationally, but remains an uncommon practice in the United States. One proposed benefit is a decrease in narcotic usage and peri-operative pain when compared to traditional multiple incision VATS. The purpose of this study was to determine the post-operative narcotic usage between patients undergoing anatomic lobectomy via traditional VATS as compared to patients undergoing uniportal VATS. METHODS: All consecutive patients undergoing anatomic lobectomy for presumed malignancy by a single surgeon at an academic medical institution were recorded between July 2013 and September 2015...

Safety and feasibility of lung resections by single incision thoracoscopy have been confirmed in large number of studies. As proponents claim its lesser invasive nature caused by lacking of additional intercostal port(s), opponents question the outcome measures of the approach especially in oncological manner. Since there is no major discussion regarding the superiority of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) on lung resections over the open technique in the surgical management of lung cancer today, advantage and disadvantage of single incision VATS lung resections was reviewed with the comparison of standard, multi-port VATS approach in this article...

Unusual anatomical segmentectomies are technically demanding procedures that require a deep knowledge of intralobar anatomy and surgical skill. In the other hand, these procedures preserve more normal lung parenchyma for lesions located in specific anatomical segments, and are indicated for benign lesions, metastasis and also early stage adenocarcinomas without nodal involvement. A 32-year-old woman was diagnosed of a benign pneumocytoma in the anterior segment of the left-lower lobe (S8, LLL), so we performed a single-incision video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (SI-VATS) anatomical S8 segmentectomy in 140 minutes under intercostal block...

During the last decade, an abundance of papers has supported minimally invasive pulmonary resections (MIPR) vs. traditional open approach. Both video assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) and robotic thoracic surgery have shown better perioperative outcomes and equivalent oncologic results compared with thoracotomy, confirming the effectiveness of the MIPR. Despite the profound changes and improvements that have taken place throughout the years and the increasing use of robotic system worldwide, the controversy about the application of robotic surgery for lung resections is still open...

The advent of one-lung ventilation (OLV) technique provides immobilized surgical field which is fundamental in minimally invasive thoracic surgery. Mainstem methods of achieving lung separation are either via a double-lumen endotracheal tube or placing a bronchial blocker (BB) through a single-lumen endotracheal tube. More recently, the use of non-intubated thoracic surgery (NITS) has been investigated intensively, attempting to minimise the complications that follow general anaesthesia. The aim of this review is to describe the mechanism of these techniques briefly and outlines the advantages and drawbacks of them with the comparison...

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy has been employed in recent decades for the treatment of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). Although trials have shown this procedure to be safe and feasible a VATS approach for lobectomy has not been widely used yet. Surgeons can go beyond this limit by following a specific operative plan focused on learning the minimally invasive technique in centers of excellence and then including: a pre-operative phase based on the radioclinical assessments and an operating phase designed to develop a methodical approach to VATS technique...

Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) procedures for thymic tumors and myasthenia gravis were introduced in Asia in the middle 1990s in at least two regions, Hong Kong and Japan. To overcome difficulties in obtaining a wide view of the anterior mediastinum, several methods for lifting the sternum or anterior chest wall have been presented, mainly by Japanese surgeons. More recently, single port VATS through a subxiphoid incision was also introduced in Japan. The long-term outcome of a VATS extended thymectomy for myasthenia gravis has been shown to be comparable to that of a trans-sternal extended thymectomy, while the long-term outcome of a VATS thymectomy for thymic epithelial tumors remains to be elucidated...
