Words from Guest Editors:

“The development of major VATS surgery has almost two decades. At present, many advanced thoracic surgical procedures can be performed by VATS, with smaller wounds, less pain, shorter hospital stay, and with as good outcomes compared with conventional surgery. This focused issue aims to review current knowledge and discuss controversies in the development of VATS. And this will be the first focused issue to talk about this topic in such a targeted journal.”
