Nowadays we tend to perform less pneumonectomies than ever before, since we have developed new techniques that can save vital lung parenchyma, such as sleeve lobectomies or segmentectomies. 

Nowdays, in modern and advanced thoracic, the less invasive methods are becoming more popular.

You are going to watch a very challenging VATS Bilobectomy (RU+RML) on a 27 yo patient after being treated with chemo/radiation.

The incision is only 4 cm long and the patient is discharged 36 hours later!
