This article addresses technical details of uniportal VATS segmentectomy by lung segments, suggesting available techniques for lesion localization and identification of the intersegmental plane. Long-term results and superiority have not yet been characterized in standard VATS for lung malignancy. Indications include almost all thoracic procedures currently performed by conventional multiport VATS. We review our experience and published literature on the feasibility of uniportal VATS segmentectomy.
