In recent years, thoracoscopic lobectomy has been rapidly developing and applied in China with an ever growing list of indications as the resectable range has been evolving from the peripheral type to the central type, from a diameter less than 3 cm to greater than 5 cm, and from lobectomy to pneumonectomy and segmental lung resection. This technique has become a routine option in our department. This video shows one case of thoracoscopic lobectomy with lymph node dissection for upper right lung cancer of 6 cm in diameter.
