Abstract

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has recognized benefits. However, patients undergoing VATS also complain acute and sometime chronic postoperative pain due to the damage of the intercostal bundles. Subxiphoid uniportal VATS has been presented as alternative approach that can completely avoid the intercostal nerve injury and further reduce the surgical outcome. The aim of this manuscript is to illustrate the Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital uniportal subxiphoid lobectomy surgical techniques.
