Synopsis: 
This study aimed to compare the outcomes among patients in whom inferior pulmonary ligaments (IPLs) were preserved or not preserved during superior lobectomy, evaluate the influence of dissecting the IPLs in VATS superior lobectomy on bronchial distortion and the recovery of pulmonary function.

ABSTRACT

Background: Whether dissecting or not the inferior pulmonary ligaments (IPLs) during superior video-assisted thoracoscopic (VATS) lobectomy for early stage lung cancer remains controversial.
