Traditional approach of bilateral lesions usually involves bilateral approaches instead of classical thoracotomy or video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) surgery, and often at two different times. During visit of Dr. Gonzalez Rivas at Master Class to Málaga, we performed right upper lobectomy and S3 wedge resection left upper lobe of a two synchronous bilateral lung lesions case with subxiphoid single incision approach. We are reporting the first case of a lobectomy combined with a wedge resection performed through an uniportal subxiphoid bilateral VATS in Spain.
