Robot-Assisted Right-Sided Diaphragmatic Plication

Monday, January 30, 2017

This video illustrates optimal robot docking, port placement, and surgical technique for a robot-assisted right-sided diaphragmatic plication. Utilizing a transthoracic anterior-medial to posterior-lateral approach with interrupted horizontal mattress sutures, the right hemidiaphragm was plicated to provide symptomatic relief for right-sided diaphragmatic paralysis.


Thank you for sharing this presentation and video with us. I was just looking for it as I have a patient with the same condition. Do you also have instructions on diaphragmatic hernia repair? Would be very helpful. Thanks a lot!
