First uniportal VATS-Lobectomy in Evangelischen Klinikum Niederrhein in Duisburg, Germany

I am happy to confirm the first uniportal VATS-Lobectomy in our institution in a 58 year old female. It was a left upper lobe lobectomy for lung cancer. The incision was 6cm long. Both drainages could be removed quick, because of the good progress. The woman went home after one week, because she wanted to and because she felt well.

Our experience with open surgery helped us to do this step.
