We would like to thank Professor Sato for his interest and positive comments regarding our work. In an era of minimally invasive thoracic surgery [video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) or robotic-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (RATS)], minimally invasive sublobar resection (SLR) represents a serious challenge especially for small peripheral nodules (SPNs) or ground glass opacities (GGOs).
