Abstract

We have developed a technique using a Mini Loop Retractor II and successfully performed video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in 32 patients. It is inserted into the pleural cavity through a skin puncture and a loop at its distal end is easily, and is freely adjustable in dimensions so that it can act as a retractor or holding forceps. Mini Loop Retractor II was very useful instruments in VATS.
