Aim: Thoracoscopic lobectomy is superior to thoracotomy, but the evidence for this assumption is low. We present a comparison between thoracotomy and thoracoscopy in term of postoperative complications, mortality, postoperative, hospital stay and quaklity of life. Patients and methods: This is a rectrospective analysis of 224 lobectomies in 24-months. 128 patients (57.1%) were operated by thoracotomy; 96 patients (42.9%) by videothoracoscopy. Results: Major complications were observed in 4/128 (3.1%) in thoracotomy group and in 1/96 (16.7%) thoracoscopy. Thoracoscopy patients had a shorter hospital stay. Conclusion: our study shows an advantage of thorascopy over thoracotomy but furher studies are needed.
