OBJECTIVE: To discuss the feasibility of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery(VATS) bronchial sleeve lobectomy for NSCLC,and to describe this treatment method and the major Indications.

METHOD: Between September 2010 and December 2012, 10 patients in our hospital underwent VATS bronchial sleeve lobectomy.The patients were one female and nine males.Included 3 cases on the right upper lobe, 3 cases on the right lower lobe, 1 case on the right middle lobe, 2 cases on the left upper lobe, 1 case on the left lower lobe.2 cases underwent VATS bronchial sleeve lobectomy and sleeve resection of the pulmonary artery.

RESULTS: 10 cases were finished by Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery.They all recovered well.No patient showed bronchopleural fistula, empyema and atelectasis.There was no perioperative death.

CONCLUSIONS: Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) lobectomy including bronchial sleeve lobectomy is therefore considered to be a feasible surgical modality for the treatment of patients with NSCLC.
