Abstract

Video-assisted thoracoscopic lobectomy (VATSL) has developed rapidly. As per the requirements of tumor staging and oncotherapy, the technique of VATS mediastinal lymph node dissection plays an important role. With our experience, lymph node dissection can be performed very well on the condition that surgical process and skills be optimized.
