Kraev A, Counts S. Robotic Left Diaphragm Plication Using Automatic (Cor-Knot) Device. February 2021. doi:10.25373/ctsnet.13957454

This video is a description of a novel technique using an automatic suture device (Cor-Knot) in robotic-assisted diaphragm plication. The slides go through the indications, OR set-up, operative steps, pitfalls, and pertinent points. The video is a demonstration of this technique.

very nice video! excellent result. I routinely use non absorbable v-lock sutures instead of non absorbable suture to tie. also, place intermittent plegets where appears thin, but I will use this technique if not available. Also, I find air seal helpful to not lose insufflation and I make sure to turn it off at end to inspect flattened diaphragm as can be fooled with insufflation on (may leave plication more lax than wanted with it on)
