What is VATS surgery on the lung?
Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is a procedure in which a small tube called a thoracoscope is inserted through a small incision between the ribs. At the end of the tube is a small camera. This lets the surgeon see the entire chest cavity without having to open up the chest or spread the ribs.
Why is a VATS procedure done?
It is a type of minimally invasive surgery. That means it uses smaller cuts (incisions) than traditional open surgery. One common reason to do VATS is to remove part of a lung because of cancer. You have 2 lungs: a right lung and a left lung.
Is vats considered major surgery?
Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is a minimally invasive surgical technique used to diagnose and treat problems in your chest.
How long does VATS lung surgery take?
The VATS lobectomy procedure takes approximately two to three hours. Patients will be under general anesthesia. The patient's tumor is first staged with endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS), using a tiny ultrasound placed down the windpipe (trachea) using a special bronchoscope.
How long does a lung surgery take?
After the surgery on your lung, your surgeon will close the ribs, muscles, and skin with sutures. Open lung surgery may take from 2 to 6 hours.
