The omission of chest tubes after thoracoscopic procedures such as sympathectomy, lung biopsy, and lung resection has proven efficacious in decreasing pain and length of hospital stay in some cases. However, its safety for mediastinal diseases remains unclear. This study evaluated the feasibility and outcome of eliminating chest drains after video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) for mediastinal tumor resection.
