Thoracoscopy is a medical procedure involving internal examination, biopsy, and/or resection of disease or masses within the pleural cavity and thoracic cavity.

Video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) is an MIS technique performed using a small video camera that is introduced into the patient's chest via a thoracoscope inserted through separate holes in the chest wall also known as "ports" through which other instruments may be inserted for the purpose of tissue removal and manipulation. These small ports are advantageous because the chance for infection and wound dehiscence are drastically reduced. This allows for a faster recovery by the patient and a greater chance for the wound to heal.
