Abstract

Video-assisted thoracic surgery is increasingly being performed by many groups as surgical management for non-small cell lung cancer, only if it is technically possible. The role of this approach is unclear when you perform the lymphadenectomy [1]. On the other hand the number of lymph nodes, stations sampled and lymph node ratio have a direct relationship with a correct pathologic staging, and thus with the prognosis.
