In the last decade, we witnessed the development of two new, fascinating techniques of mediastinal exploration: the video-assisted mediastinoscopic lymphadenectomy (VAMLA) and the transcervical extended mediastinal lymphadenectomy (TEMLA). During this time, several articles were published, providing a substantial body of evidence regarding different aspects of these techniques. Based on this evidence, we discuss the operative technique, its applications and results as well as questions to be answered and possible future development. The aim of this review is to provide the readers who have no personal experience with these techniques, with the key information regarding the usefulness, advantages and drawbacks of VAMLA and TEMLA.
