Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Since 2000, 15 patients have undergone single port (uniportal) video-assisted thoracic surgery for wedge pulmonary resection either for diagnosis of interstitial lung diseases (10 patients) or for treatment of primary spontaneous pneumothoraces (5 patients). Diagnosis was obtained in all patients and no recurrences of pneumothorax were seen at follow-up. This initial experience shows that, for specific indications, uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery for wedge pulmonary resections can be safe and effective.
