CTSNet’s Top 5 Thoracic Procedure Videos of 2023
Variety and innovation were abundant in this year’s thoracic surgery clinical videos. The most popular videos focused on a range of thoracic procedures, from 3D technology for segmentectomy to Nissen fundoplication. Read on for a glance at each procedure and check out our full catalog of thoracic surgical videos.
The most popular thoracic video this year demonstrates 3D Slicer open-source software. The software, which is free to download, allows the user to create a preoperative model of the airway, lung, tumor, and vessels to prepare for a complex segmentectomy.
When major bleeding in the right main pulmonary artery began during a routine VATS pneumectomy, the authors of this popular video demonstrated their technique to control the bleeding and salvage the procedure.
Next on the list, this video shows the authors using indocyanine green as the modality of choice for intraoperative localization of the thoracic duct in chylothorax management.
These authors chose to showcase a unique procedure. The technique is challenging but addresses patients with complicating features including skeletal hypermobility disorders, multiple ipsilateral slipping ribs, rib deformities, and failed prior slipping rib operations.
Finally, the authors of this video demonstrate their method for a robotic Nissen fundoplication in step-by-step detail, along with a thorough write-up of each step.
