Uniportal VATS is one of the innovative procedures that have revolutionized the field of minimally invasive thoracic surgery in the past 10 years. In spite of the lack of definitive and much awaited evidence of its role in the thoracic surgical armamentarium compared to traditional three port VATS or open surgery, surgeons are increasingly attracted to this approach and the trend is not subsiding. This book on Uniportal VATS, edited by Drs Lijie Tan, Alan Sihoe, Lunxu Liu and Diego Gonzalez-Rivas, comes at the right time to carve in stone the theoretical principles, the technical tips and the current indications of uniportal VATS.
