The soft spreading
Patients with lung cancer underwent Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) with soft spreading (using LAP Protector).
Device: LAP Protector
The LAP Protector is a device that consists of two flexible rings made of superelasticity alloys covered with polyurethane polyamide, and a thin silicone rubber membrane that is attached to the outer rim of the two rings
The rigid spreading
Patients with lung cancer underwent Video-assisted Thoracoscopic Surgery (VATS) with rigid spreading.
- Compare the level of postoperative pain between the rigid and soft spreading groups [ Time Frame: 1 day ]The level of postoperative pain was measured by Visual Analogue Scale (VAS).
- Compare early postoperative analgesic requirements between the rigid and soft spreading groups [ Time Frame: 1 week ]Postoperative analgesic requirements (e.g. the amount of morphine titration).
