Overview of Thoracoscopic VATS:

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is a minimally invasive surgical procedure used to diagnose and treat a range of thoracic (chest area) conditions, including lung, esophageal, and pleural effusion. Compared to an open-chest surgery, VATS is a safer procedure with reduced downtime and complication risks.

The procedure involves the insertion of a camera called a thoracoscope and surgical tools into the chest through small incisions made in the chest wall. The surgeon performs the process with the help of images sent by the thoracoscope on a video monitor.

Conditions Treated with Thoracoscopy VATS

Thoracoscopic specialists use VATS to diagnose and treat several types of cancers in the thoracic area. The procedures include:

  • Tissue removal or biopsy and surgery to remove the cancer cells for the following cancers:
  1. Lung cancer
  2. Metastatic cancer
  3. Oesophageal cancer
  4. Chest cancer
  5. Pleural mesothelioma
  6. Thymoma and thymic carcinoma

VATS is also effective for other conditions, such as:

  • Pleural effusion: removes excess fluid around the lung
  • Hiatal hernia: repairs the hernia to prevent the upper part of the stomach from pushing into the chest through an opening in the diaphragm
  • Hyperhidrosis: prevents excessive sweating
  • Oesophagectomy: removes part or whole oesophagus
  • Pericarditis: treats the inflammation and swelling of the pericardium.
  • Lung disorders such as COPD and tuberculosis
  • Spine tumours and abscesses
