Uniportal VATS Right Upper Lobectomy
This video presents a single-port VATS right upper lobectomy for stage Ia NSCLC in an 81-year-old patient. The total procedure time was 55 minutes.
This was the authors’ third uniportal lobectomy, after previously performing close to 250 VATS lobectomies using a three-port technique. It is the authors’ belief that some parts of the VATS procedure are actually simplified by using the uniportal approach.
