1 Citation (Scopus)


We report a lateral approach using the grasping technique for uniportal major lung resection. Grasping dissected tissue with grasping forceps enables the dissected surface to be three-dimensionally dissected from important organs, such as blood vessels, which, therefore, makes the procedure safe. Furthermore, there is an incision wound on the middle axillary line at the 6th intercostal space, and therefore, either the anterior or posterior side of the hilum can be easily observed, and a stapler can pass through all structures of the hilum easily.
