Single-incision thoracoscopic surgery has increasingly attracted public interest and been applied in numerous thoracic procedures. However, single-incision thoracoscopic surgery is associated with requiring subsequent procedures, such as intercostal neuralgia. Herein, we extend the single-port technique of pulmonary metastasectomy through a single subxiphoid approach, and report the first two cases of this procedure to date.
