VATS Right Lower Lobe Lobectomy (Nonedited)
The fourth of twelve videos in a CTSNet series on Thoracic Surgical Oncology - Technical Approaches by Professor Tristan D. Yan is presented here. To see the complete list of videos in the Thoracic Surgical Oncology video series, click here.
This video tutorial demonstrates how to perform VATS lobectomy in a safe and simple way using the Edinburgh posterior approach, pioneered by Mr William Walker. This approach provides excellent visualization of the tips of the instruments, coming towards the endoscope. Each lobectomy generally takes less than 30 minutes to complete and total ipsilateral lymph node dissection is straightforward with this approach. This video demonstrates how to efficiently perform a VATS right lower lobe lobectomy in a patient who had a 3.5 cm melanoma pulmonary metastasis.
