Abstract

With the evolution of minimally invasive surgery, more complicated surgeries have to be redefined from a technical standpoint in order to facilitate efficient as well as safe dissection. Bilobectomy is a rare operation - however, one must be skilled at performing it via a thoracoscopic approach as we recognize that minimally invasive surgery is more cost effective and associated with lower morbidity and mortality. In this paper, we highlight some of the technical considerations that will allow surgeons to perform a safe and expeditious resection of two lobes simultaneously.
