Since the first lung resection for a tumour in 1861 by Pean1, thoracic surgery has evolved considerably and now offers patients widely available minimally invasive surgical options aimed at maintaining excellent oncological outcomes, while decreasing perioperative morbidity. The pursuit of further improvement of the disease free survival with an ever increasing multimorbidity population has led to the emergence of segmentectomy as the natural progression of parenchymal sparing techniques.2The current available evidence that compares segmentectomy with lobectomy in stage I non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) includes three randomised control trials (RCT), and several retrospective cohorts and meta-analyses.
