Abstract

Uniportal video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) has generated much attention in recent years, but questions remain regarding the adequacy of evidence to support its use in lung cancer surgery. This review aims to explore what the currently published literature suggests the role of the uniportal approach may be and to critically appraise that literature.
