We evaluated the invasiveness of videothoracoscopy-assisted mini-posterolateral thoracotomy (VAmPLT) for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). This study prospectively analyzed 50 NSCLC patients who underwent VAmPLT lobectomy. We measured maximal negative inspiratory pressure (PImax), maximal positive expiratory pressure (PEmax), quadriceps strength (QS),(More)
