Video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) or thoracoscopy has been applied to almost every organ system within the chest. Frequently, confusion has arisen regarding the appropriate application of this technology and the preparation needed to provide it to patients. Pertinent topics for discussion are preoperative imaging/localization, anesthesia/airway management patient positioning, video/assistant positioning, special supplies, and postoperative care. The purpose of this book is to provide a framework based on these and other issues to share helpful technical tips, assist operating room personnel preparing supplies, limit unnecessary costs, and define VATS limitations as well as its present role in the overall scheme of thoracic surgery.
