This article describes minimally invasive open surgery for resection of intrapulmonary malignancies. This approach compensates for the weak points of video-assisted thoracic surgery while remaining minimally invasive. Overall, it is respected as a technically feasible alternative to conventional lobectomy by way of open thoracotomy with an acceptable range of morbidity or mortality.
