#14: CTSNet Beat Podcast: CT Training Models, Postop Day 1 Discharge After Lobectomy, and Overview of Anatomy for Robotic Lobectomy

Tuesday, March 23, 2021

This Beat episode, hosted by Brian Mitzman MD, general thoracic surgeon with the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, focuses two recent publications and also a featured video on CTSNet. First, Dr Mitzman discusses a recent JTCVS expert opinion from Dr Craig Baker of USC discussing traditional and integrated models for cardiothoracic surgery training. He then dives into a recent Annals publication from the team at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center which analyzes the STS General Thoracic Database and evaluates postoperative day 1 discharge after lobectomy. Lastly, Dr Mitzman reviews a CTSNet featured video from Drs Watkins and Servais in Boston, where they run through tips and tricks for all five robotic lobectomies.
