|Official Title:||Feasibility of Assisted-VATS(Video-Assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery) Sleeve Lobectomy for Non-small Cell Lung Cancer|
- If success rate over 90%, assisted-VATS sleeve lobectomy is considered as feasible procedures for non-small cell lung cancer. (Success is defined as assisted-VATS sleeve lobectomy without conversion). [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
- To evaluate the intraoperative(surgical duration, estimated blood loss), postoperative variables(mortality, morbidity, chest tube drainage duration, hospital stay), and 5-year survival rates. [ Time Frame: 3 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Patients with NSCLC underwent assisted-VATS sleeve lobectomy with bronchoplasty.
In brief, general anesthesia with selective lung ventilation was performed with the use of a double-lumen endotracheal tube. When postoperative mechanical ventilation was necessary, a standard endotracheal tube was substituted for the double-lumen tube. Patients were placed in the lateral decubitus position. Two thoracoports were placed in the sixth or seventh intercostal space (ICS) on the anterior axillary line and in the seventh or eighth ICS on the posterior axillary line; an anterolateral minithoracotomy (7 cm) was made in the fourth ICS for an upper lobectomy or in the fifth ICS for a middle or lower lobectomy.
Other Name: assisted-VATS (video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery)
Sleeve lobectomy is removal of a portion of a main stem bronchus in continuity with the adjacent lobe or bilobe followed by end-to-end bronchial anastomosis. The first reported bronchial sleeve resection was performed in 1947 at the Brompton Hospital in London, England, by Sir Clement Price Thomas. Whether sleeve resection is radical enough and indicated for patients who could tolerate pneumonectomy continues to be debated, although many recent reports have suggested that sleeve resection can achieve adequate curability rates. However, sleeve lobectomy has a definite role in the surgical management of lung cancer for patients whose pulmonary reserve is considered inadequate to permit pneumonectomy, and should be used anytime it is possible to achieve a margin-negative (R0) resection.
Although video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) is regarded as a minimally invasive procedure with good long-term survival results, many surgeons think that VATS is too complex and has too many technical limitations to be applied to bronchoplasty. Therefore, there are few reports in the literature of VATS bronchoplasty for lung cancer. The purpose of this study is to examine the feasibility of assisted-VATS (video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery) sleeve lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer for non-small cell lung cancer. Success is defined as assisted-VATS sleeve lobectomy without conversion. If success rate over 90%, assisted-VATS sleeve lobectomy is considered as feasible procedures for non-small cell lung cancer.
