Eam at ucsf hasâ helped to pioneer in the use of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (vats), a less invasive surgical procedure that can be used to remove tumors from the chest, esophagus, and lungs. Minimally invasive surgery decreases post-operative pain, shortens hospital stays and allows a more rapid return to normal activities. buy viagra online uk forum Instead of traditional procedure, a thoracotomy, where the chest is opened using a large 6- to 8-inch incision, surgeons make three small 1-inch incisions and insert a lighted tube and video camera (a thorascope) and operated using special tiny surgical instruments.

â the camera transmits images of the operative area back to a computer monitor, guiding the surgeons as they manipulate the instruments.
