Tubeless VATS entails procedures carried out under Non-intubated spontaneous respiration anesthesia without the use of a chest drainage tube or urinary catheter. By forgoing the use of the 'tubes' all pain and complications associated with tracheal intubation, muscle relaxants, chest tubes, discomfort at the site of incision, and urinary catheters are avoided. The most prominent desire of surgeons and patients is less surgical trauma, with a resulting faster recovery and better post-operative quality of life. The benefit of tubeless VATS can be seen in the incredibly speedy post-operative discharge and recovery.
