VATS major pulmonary resection revisited--controversies, techniques, and results.

The application of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in major pulmonary resections has remained infrequent, despite earlier demonstration of its technical feasibility. The early postoperative benefits of this approach to patients are now well documented.
