Lately, there is growing interest in the role of video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery (VATS) in the first rib resection for thoracic outlet syndrome; or thoracic inlet syndrome (TIS) to author’s preference. In PubMed alone, since 1962 there have been over two hundred published articles on the surgical approach for the treatment of TIS. The open technique peaked its scientific interest in the early 1990’s. Over the last couple of years, the international community is exploring the VATS approach, which is gaining popularity. We anticipate the thoracoscopic approach to reach its topmost in the following two decades following a Gaussian distribution.
