Abstract

Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) has enabled more complex procedures previously requiring thoracotomy to be accomplished in lung cancer management. VATS today can be employed in the evaluation of idiopathic (and known) malignant pleural effusions, mediastinal adenopathy, indeterminate pulmonary nodules, and compromise resection and lobectomy of peripheral stage I non-small cell lung cancer. Thus, VATS is becoming an accepted approach to a variety of intrathoracic problems, although its absolute indications for patients with lung cancer have yet to be firmly defined. This article reviews the authors' current experience with VATS procedures in the treatment of patients with lung cancer.
