Nowadays, videothoracoscopic lobectomy is accepted as the standard treatment method in early-stage lung cancer. Sleeve lobectomy, which is an alternative to pneumonectomy in centrally located tumors or peribronchial tumor infiltration, was previously performed via thoracotomy, but it can be performed by video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in recent years. In this method, without compromising oncological principles, a more comfortable and less morbid postoperative process can be provided to the patient compared to thoracotomy. Here, we aimed the presenting two cases that underwent VATS sleeve lobectomy for non-small cell lung cancer and their results.
