Abstract

With the careful preoperative patient selection, lung cancer involving the carina can be surgically treated with satisfactory immediate and long-term results (1). The rapid development of minimally invasive thoracic surgery and surgeons' acquisition of experience and new skills in this type of surgery has led to increased confidence among surgeons in their ability to perform the most challenging procedures through these techniques.
