Abstract

Surgical scientific literature contains relatively little information regarding the surgical outcomes of anatomic sublobar resections performed with the uniportal video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (U-VATS) technique. This paper attempts to evaluate the role of U-VATS segmentectomies in the landscape of a minimally invasive approach to the treatment of early stage non small cell lung cancer (NSCLC).
