Robot-Assisted Resection of a Left Apical Schwannoma
A 41-year-old female had an abnormal chest x-ray when assessed for a productive cough. A CT scan showed an apical posterior mass on the left side, and a needle biopsy demonstrated schwannoma. An MRI demonstrated no foraminal invasion. This video demonstrates the robot-assisted resection in this case. The robot is ideally suited for surgery at the thoracic inlet.
