The video-assisted thoracic surgery (VATS) technique has evolved from its multiport origins to even less invasive approaches grounded in its proven benefits over open surgery for the treatment of early stage lung cancer. In this evolution process, the Uniportal VATS (UniVATS) strategy emerged. This technique is giving some evidence of benefits when compared to the multiport VATS and has been embraced by the surgical community spreading its geographical and surgical boundaries. Moreover, UniVATS has proven its feasibility for numerous and more complex procedures for lung cancer diagnosis and treatment, which are reviewed in this document as well as its current and future development.
