Despite VATS lobectomy being 25 years old, we do need definitive results urgently and from large randomised clinical trials in order to demonstrate the remarkable advantage for the patients undergoing major lung resection by minimally invasive approach. Looking forward to seeing the results of this French multicentric trial and from the ongoing VIOLET trial from UK.
