Abstract: VATS lobectomy is a respected modality of anatomic lung resections nowadays. Video-assisted lobectomies without rib extractor fulfil all current requirements for minimally invasive lung resections. This type of an anatomic pulmonary resection with a targeted treatment of hilar structures doesn’t traumatize the intercostal space by using rib retractor. Videothoracoscope serves to visualize the surgical field on the screen. Assisted VATS (aVATS) lobectomy is a procedure using 3–5 cm working incision. Fully endoscopic resection (VTS) or complete VATS lobectomy (cVATS) are operations performed only through ports, without working incision. The authors supplement the article with a videorecord of VATS lobectomy general technique (Fig. 4, Ref. 11).

Keywords: video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, VATS lobectomy, general technique
