METHODS: We reviewed 194 patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic lung biopsies for the suspicion of interstitial lung disease from January 2003 to February 2012 at Emory University...

BACKGROUND: Anatomic sublobar resection is currently being assessed as an alternative to lobectomy for primary lung cancers less than 2 cm in size. Open segmentectomy is a proven oncologic procedure for patients with reduced cardiopulmonary reserve and significant comorbidities. With the increased use of thoracoscopy, a video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) segmentectomy may be as safe and effective as an open segmentectomy. METHODS: We performed a retrospective review of patients who underwent a segmentectomy between May 2002 and March 2009 at Emory University Hospital...
