A Cost-Effectiveness Analysis Comparing the VivaSight Double-Lumen Tube and a Conventional Double-Lumen Tube in Adult Patients Undergoing Thoracic Surgery Involving One-Lung Ventilation.
Larsen et al.

By utilizing VivaSight-DL, there is a substantial reduction in the need for fiberoptic bronchoscopy to correct tube placement. By avoiding bronchoscopy during one lung ventilation, VivaSight-DL may present cost-savings in these procedures.

A randomized comparison between the VivaSight double-lumen tube and standard double-lumen tube intubation in thoracic surgery patients
Palaczynski et al. 

Video-double lumen tubes had significantly shorter intubation time compared to conventional double lumen tubes, easier intubation, and didn't require fiberoptic bronchoscopy.

A Randomized Controlled Study of the Use of Video Double-Lumen Endobronchial Tubes versus Double-Lumen Endobronchial Tubes in Thoracic Surgery 
Heir et al. 

The use of VivaSight DLT for lung isolation during thoracic surgery resulted in an 86.8% reduction in fiberoptic bronchoscope use. Additionally, VivaSight DLT enabled the users to forewarn of dislodgement in 18.4% of cases compared to only 4.8% of cDLT procedures, marking an improvement in patient care and workflow.

Double-lumen tube tracheal intubation in a manikin model using the VivaSight Double Lumen: a randomized controlled comparison with the Macintosh laryngoscope
Szarpak et al. 

Across all variables analzyed, the VivaSight DLT was signficantly better than the conventional DLT counterpart, with faster time to intubation and easier intubation versus the comparator.

Comparison of VivaSight double-lumen tube with a conventional double-lumen tube in adult patients undergoing video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery
Levy-Faber et al.

In a prospective study including 71 patients, use of VivaSight DL resulted in a signficantly reduced time to confirmation of tube position, and did not require the use of a fiberoptic bronchoscope during intubation or surgery. VivaSight DL enabled signficantly more rapid intubation versus traditional lumen tubes.

Intubation with vivasight or conventional left-sided double-lumen tubes: a randomized trial
Schuepbach et al.

In a prospective study evaluating the VivaSight DLT and conventional DLT in 20 patients each, the utilization of VivaSight DLT resulted in faster insertion and initial positioning of DLT, faster successful intubation, and easier correction of displacement versus the convetional DLT.

Implications of VivaSight-DL: Procedural Impact of a Camera-Integrated Double Lumen Tube
Haislip et al. 

A systematic review of the overall implications of utilizing VivaSight DLT for one-lung ventilation procedures found that use of thise video-integrated double lumen tube significantly reduces the time to intubation, need for flexible bronchoscope use, and may allow for early detection of tube displacement.

Comparing the rate of fiberoptic bronchoscopy use with a video double lumen tube versus a conventional double lumen tube - a randomized controlled trial
Onifade et al. 

Use of VivaSight DLT required significantly lower rate of fiberoptic bronchoscopy compared to conventional double-lumen tube. Additionally, the time to confirm double-lumen tube placement was signficantly quicker, while the incidence of tube malpositioning was signficantly lower, when using VivaSight DLT.
