Reasons not to perform subxiphoid video-assisted thoracic surgery

Authors: Alan D. L. Sihoe, Joel Dunning


The title of this paper can be read in two ways. Many readers will first think it is meant to say “these are the reasons that one should not perform subxiphoid VATS”. Another reading is that “these should not be the reasons for one to perform subxiphoid VATS”. The authors’ intention is decidedly in line with the latter.
