Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) has undergone significant evolution over several decades. Although endoscopic instruments continued to improve, it was not until 1992 that the first VATS lobectomy for lung cancer was performed. Despite significant seeding of such procedure in several thoracic units globally, the uptake was slow and frustrating. Many surgeons considered it complex and unsafe being skeptic about its oncological validity. The last decade has witnessed significant change of practice in many thoracic units with a new generation of VATS thoracic surgeons. Additionally the technique has been refined, standardized and proved its validity and superiority in lung cancer treatment.
